The Lyrics

We have so many in our family...it's a headache to wait at a restaraunt...some diners don't take that many :D
Sittin' here front of the tube
Tryin' not to act much like a boob
Write about food again
Maybe write about stuff around me,oh yeah

Well now, maybe a little of both
You want dinner in the trough?
Family interesting tho,rate of growth
Join the crowd.

Fam'ly goes out for dinner
Can't find no place for to sit
Diners can't hold more than twenty
Takes too long, shoulda brought our own mess kit.

"Carassco, party of twenty" join the throng,
Still it takes us much too long.
Puttin' in order,with our banquet song
On the way.

Talk 'bout people at table
Gross things they did when they were small
Shocking, funny things done when they were big.
So I'll give you some samples here, yea.

One was a girl all in black
Fingernails, eyeliner, maybe lips too
Nother's making bathroom noise
With others listening in.

Now I'll have to continue this another day
Make a sequel, that I may
Finally leave after three hour stay
Goin' home.

(whistle)

I have to politely disagree, Mike A. . We write parodies here to get kudos and votes from other writers. I have seen your opinion expressed many times before, but it is usually by somebody in the top 25. If they really thought that, wouldn't they put just any old name on there and not give a hang where they are in the rankings? I, myself, am supposed to just be catching on. Would pacing, funny, overall matter that much as long as I liked it? I could probably put one out there that made no sense, didn't rhyme, didn't fall in with the music and get as many votes as I do now...which is not many, unfortunately. However, I DO wish for comments and votes...just at least to tell me how I am doing.
