The Lyrics

Friends all tried to warn me 'bout the power spread too thin
All the time they warned me but I plugged those suckers in
They all tried to tell me that old outlets overload
I turned my back then heard something explode

Now my burning fridge is blazing up before my eyes
All the smoking milk and cheese and crisping curly fries
Extinguisher I cannot find and smoke rolls out the door
Burning fridge is lost forever more

Joe offered to help me add some circuits to my wall
But I was just too lazy and I never gave a call
Microwave and radio and toaster ovens three
I plugged them in and added a TV

Now my burning fridge is causing smoke alarm to scream
All the sizzling leftovers and melting quart ice cream
Extension cords I piled up and looped above the door
Burning fridge is lost forever more

Minutes passin' - I keep watchin' flames light up the night
I look back and slam the door and think of that fridge light
I know that I've lost all my food and deposit on my rent
I guess I should have listened to my friends

Now my burning fridge is being hosed down by F.D.
All that soggy food was due to be eaten by me
'Fridgerator light I'm sure's turned off behind that door
Burning fridge is lost forever more
Burning fridge is lost forever more

I think that more of us remember the song than you thought, M&P! Fun (unless it was true) parody!

DKTOS....what a story, yikes! Reminds me of when I set the office toaster oven on fire.
Phil Alexander - April 13, 2004 - Report this comment
DKTOS, but from the way it reads I'd guess it's spot on...
Oh, my fridge has run amok it
Drew way too much from the socket
And then when I saw the smok' it
Made me think "Oh, dear... oh **** it"
...or something like that ;-)

DKTOS, don't need to. Great descriptive stuff!

I'm reluctant to admit this, Dude, but I know this song not from Mike Curb's version, but from Donny Osmond's. (It's on his first album, called, ahem, "The Donny Osmond Album.") Great job as usual from the Hobbit Wonder Twins. "Fridge is" is an excellent sub for "bridges."

It'd be nice to hear someone perform it via a download
