The Lyrics

I know Weird Al went thru the "food phase", but I too, after 25 years of foodservice, must unload songs like this.
I burnt the pancakes, but I did not burn the scrambled eggs.
I burnt the pancakes, but I did not burn no scrambled eggs.

1. Sizzling bacon and sausage links, are trying to drag me down.
I make a living as a breakfast cook, I grill them until they turn brown.
Yes until they are all golden brown, but I say:

I burnt the pancakes, but I did not burn the scrambled eggs.
I burnt the pancakes, but I swear it was a Teflon pan.

2. Emeril Lagasse always hated me,
For what I don’t know.
Every time that I toast sesame seeds,
he’d say bam them before they grow
he’s say bam them before they grow.
Read it in the news.

I burnt the pancakes, but I swear it was a Teflon pan.
I burnt the pancakes, and they say it’s made in Amsterdam.

3. Freedom came my way one day
Got fired and I started out of town, yeah!
All of a sudden the unemployment office calls
Making me to feel like a lazy jerk,
So I applied at IHOP, and found me some work. On no.

I burnt the pancakes, but I did not burn the scrambled eggs.
I burnt the pancakes, but I swear it was a Teflon pan.

4. Whole Wheat Flapjacks got the better of me
And what is to be must be:
Every day the batter goes to the grill,
One day the flames will drop out,
Yes One day, one day the flames will all drop out. I say:

I burnt the pancakes, but I swear it was a Teflon pan.
I burnt the pancakes, and they say it’s made in Amsterdam.

Clever use of phraseology. A funny rendition of a not-so-funny original.

Thanks so much all, seems like only yesterday I was doing 16 hotcakes at a time at work (well, in the '80's), and as delicious as blueberry pancakes are, pity the guy who must clean the grill...

Well you only have the AmsterDAMN teflon pan to blame for the burnt vittles. Not an easy song to parody. I did this one twice I believe and it presented a challenge each time as I recall. Nothing wrong with food parodies. They are fun and this one is done well or should I say well done but only the food is burnt, not the parody. Here's some 5 minute eggs to sate your parody writing appetite. I like this one, but please keep the food to yourself.
