The Lyrics

Hey, hey, we're the Hobbits! We're back!

Original song on YouTube
Two, decidedly rough
Events did their stuff
Played havoc in London's summers
Two caused millions to snuff
It was kinda sad
Must say it was quite a bummer, save me...

Plague ignites the fears of town
Epic buboe year be ‘65
Pestilence a deadly trend
They’ll be shakin' and takin’ of lives
From the rats came the fleas
If you’re rich you could flee...
Shun that grave-y

Two, decidedly rough
Events did their stuff
With one had just been encumbered
As if that weren’t enough
Man, this made ‘em mad
Crap, holy! There come another!

Try the firestorm from hell
Because baker’s maid got it all wrong
Run up to the heath to view
Those flames blow fanned by breezes so strong
Will the world end today?
Be our God quite irate?
Could we go to heaven? ‘cus

Two, decidedly rough
Hap’nings came along
(Man, one in itself, was bummer)
Two, decidedly rough
Cyclonically bad
Events caused hurt and much bother

Please explain insane shows of power
That devoured and set aglow
Take away this bloody flea purge
That thou have assigned
If you don’t mind
Let us unwind
‘Twould be so kind...

Two, decidedly rough
Catastrophes, sad
One: angiopathic started
Two: combusted; all blew
Some bakery had
Imploded down in St. Martin’s

Two, decidedly rough
Anomalies won
The lives of a goodly number
Two, decidedly rough
Upon this cuidad
Phenomena did all plunder...

Yay, a new M&P parody.. it's like walking down Nostalgia Street today. Nice contemporary subject matter, too :-) Hope you hobbits are well etc.

Nostalgia with Grass Roots - always like their pop songs, but don't remember this one, so the link helped. I like this parody.

Oh wow, could this be a resurgence of AIR glory days, with the Hobbits & RickD putting their feet in the water again?! (Nice parody, as always gang, check out Artistry and ABC at inthe00s, please!)

Better than a room full of monkeys! It's you two isn't it? Just not divided except by geography. This is weird. Last night I wanted to write a remake of "Who's what's his name" Original artists CCR. Since that OS is so short I was going to add stanzas to it a do it justice. Alas, there is ailment with the IP provider in my area. I lost internet and phone but retained cable. Service has been restored just a short time ago. So, it didn't happen because I need to be online when I compose to use other sites that help me to write. So I guess I just decomposed.

Enough about my challenges. M&P back! Love you two! Brilliant write here and it seems to be somehow very inspired!

Best line in the parody:

"Crap, holy! There come another!"

Quality write here as is your norm. 5 by 5.

Wow, not only have I never heard the OS before but I've never even heard of the band. Good job of combining the two events here. Perhaps Wren started the fire because he needed some work. Fave line was "Two caused millions to snuff".

Thank you for the votes and comments everyone. Not only did we give you some historic parody matter, but also a historic parody, as this one was actually finished Feb. 7, 2010! :O Glad to see you all, and Guy, sorry about your IP issues - looking forward to seeing some of your stuff again in the future.

Thank you everyone! Since posting, I have been asleep, at work, on a rare night out after work, asleep again - so am only just here now, a day and a half later! I will go and have a look at the others now. Thanks for the great feedback :)

Glad to see the two of you are not divided by anything. Ah, London in the Swinging Sixties... the 1660s. Party on, Charles!
