"Cherry Herring"

The Lyrics

Cherry Herring is a Danish liqueur/brandy made from cherries and their pits. As a bored teenager at family gatherings I would be given a very small amount of it, but I made it last! The following is an "exaggeration" of one such gathering. One difference, however, was that Grandma Aranoff was really cool!
So we're back again, to grandma's this afternoon
It's been two months but much too soon
This family is such a drag to see
A chore - it's such a bore!

Aunt Sara's off her meds once again
Geeky Cousin Larry's hitting on me
It would be much, much, much, much much worse indeed
But they give me Cherry Herring, mmm, mmm, mmm

Grandma she cooks; we had all wished for Chinese
And right-wing Cousin Louise
Shoots off her trap, then I find crap
From Grog, Sara's dog

And still my weirdo family offends
I should be hanging with my friends
My grandma sure sure sure sure makes amends
With Cherry Herring!

Mmmmmm, Cherry Herring!

Aunt Peg, big pain, rags on my mom
They had a fight ten years ago
And she just won't let it go

My parents say "They're family" - though they sure complain
Cousin Ernie's too loud - loser crowd!

And still my weirdo family offends
I should be hanging with my friends
My grandma sure sure sure sure makes amends
With Cherry Herring!

Mari D - I'm jealous! I would have given all my worldly possessions for SOMETHING to help me get through family gatherings, especially some step-brothers and sisters. I wasn't able to handle them until I started inhaling this herb thingee stuff (I was 18 back then, my how things change). My dad would tell me "Hey, they're not so bad, try to get along." I think now his opinion is more in line with what mine was then; they've caused nothing but trouble over their Mother's Estate since she passed away in 2001. It drives him crazy to be fighting with them, Christ, he's 88 now! Later.

I have always hated heart. Ask me about the Dutch and their herring sometime.
