Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A hen's plea.
Don't take my eggs away from me.
Don't you leave me in such misery
When baby goes,
Then I feel blue
Cos giving birth is hard to do.

They say that laying eggs is hard to do,
Now I know, I know that it's true
Don't say you need it to fry
And then you put it on your plate, and eat it with a fork and knife.
I beg of you don't make me cry
Each time you take an egg to fry
Oh Mister please start anew
Cos laying eggs is hard to do.

Appropriate for this time of year.

Speaking as a decade policeman, the original was from the sixties. Speaking as myself, this was a well written parody, altho it should probably have been longer. So I'll give this one a 4/5/5.

I'm with Mr.Critic, although he did start his first two sentences with "dangling" participial phrases.

Thanks, GP. Now why didn't you ticket me for writing "altho" in lieu of "although"?
Mr critic - March 18, 2005 - Report this comment
You're right! "Speaking as a decade policeman" should pertain to me, not the original, since "the original" doesn't speak. So I should have probably said something like: "Speaking as a decade policeman, I must say that the original was from the sixties. Speaking as myself, I think this parody was well written...." Does that sound better, GP?

Grammar Police and Mr. critic, you 2 should get a room, and then a life...LOL

Actually, I am dropping all the charges against Mr. Critic since he corrected himself.

Let me weigh in on something. The song was first released in the 60's, but in 1974, during Sadaka's comeback, he put out a slower version of the song, which sounded like dinner music, so you could say it was from the 70's as well. Of course, it's scary that this "comeback" was 30 years ago.

Actually, his comeback would be 31 years ago (2005 minus 1974 equals 31).
