Parody Song Title:

"I'm The Friar"

Parody Written by:

Agrimorfee

The Lyrics

Hey Maid Marian, is Robin Hood home?
Or did he go leave you all alone? Hmmm
Come and sit by the fire
Oh, I'm the friar
Tell me now, kiddo, is it true in folklore
That he robs from the rich and feeds the poor? Hmmm
He is needed for hire
Oh, I'm the friar
'Cause old Prince John --very edgy and dull--
Is taxing the peasants and making his pockets full
With all the Merry Men who love to laugh
We could use your assistance and a half, oh yeah
And I'm not a liar
Oh, I'm the friar
Copyright 1985, Agrimorfee

I would've given you fives if you had Tuck come on to Marian.

(ABC3I) I see from the copyright this is one of your earliest works, Agrimorfee. It's also a good one; you did more with this song than I ever could. Nice rhyming and flow. 5s.

The copyright is a little early. If I remember right, in 1985 Agri wasn't even born yet. Has he been hanging out with "Doc"? As for the song, it is interesting and not the same-old-same-old. 5's. --MM

(ABC) I Sherwood have liked this to have been longer but, it was good nonetheless. 555

(ABC3-I) Friar Tuck, Fire Truck, Try A.....no, we'll leave it there - short and sweet, Agri - the idea of somebody calling his gang Merry Men has always cracked me up - 555

(ABC) Oh, those randy friars! Coincides nicely since we're doing the medieval period in English, Agri.

Short and sweet! Nice Cliff Notes version of the Robin Hood story.

ABC...I have no explanation for why, but I loved this song when it came out. Seriously LOVED it. And I was probably, like, 10. Which is pretty weird. Did I know what it was even about? Doubtful. Anyway...as a ten year old, I WAS familiar with Robin Hood...so I would have probably appreciated this as much then as I do now. Nice work, Agri...

[Artistry] Hmm, let's see now, Agrimorfee was born in 1970 and he wrote this parody in 1985, which by my calculations made him...um...carry the three.... 132 years old when he wrote this. Or maybe my math skills are a little rusty. Good work and insight into the youngster who would later become the professor of parodies.

Great title sub... Other than that this one didn't do much for me Aggy, I realize that this was a very old one by you but still it didn't grab ahold of me and squeeze like a lot of your other parodies have done before in the past.

Short, sweet, nice. God had a higher call for this song -- beer... errr...

(Artistry) Interesting title sub, but not a whole lot actually going on to be funny. But hey, you're excused for being 15 (or 132, whatever) and new at the time.

Art-Good title sub, and I liked how you used the edgy and dull line in your version. Good idea here.

You know what's funny about this song, if it were about twice it's length it'd be another Be Our Guest. Even though the OS give no one much to work with, every parody I've seen of it was very well written, and with one exception they are all hilarious too. . .Good News: This one is NOT the exception. I found it to be funny in a scary way, which is probably the point, that was fun.
