The Lyrics

I guess you could all survive for a another while without being served this new food parody with list element fillings, but the original song (musically one of Motorhead's softer ones, with a humpy beat that could probably go down easy on any chick pop album) has almost the perfect tone and lyrical setup for one more fast bite at snail food restaurants and the world of non-attentive, snooty waiters. I mean, really, what are they doing with the cock in the kitchen?

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
You sold us ale well-seasoned
You're gone without a reason
You went out for some fryer
You seem to have retired
We're getting discontent
We don't know where you went
We've asked the hatcheck twice
Have you been put on ice?
Fatigued from food desire
Entrées what we require
You sold House Recommends
You're dead as it portends
This service's really lame!


When we said escargots
We didn't mean this slow
Just give us Jell-O, blue
Blue's what we're feeling too
We soon must ask the day
This date has gone astray
We ordered curry stew
It's hours overdue
Just give us bread with lard an'
Whatever's in the garden
Four pounds we've lost in weight
Since we walked through the gate
And now we're chasing flies


We have called out for you
Girls in the kitchen too
We now survive on fumes
And (don't ask) backed up prunes
The menu's hare field meal
Now looks a hair filled steal
What else you hoped to sell
We hope has aged as well
And that snail track on you
Comes that with French bleu?
Don't blame the chef for hazy
Your union's pushing daisies
Can you come here today?


© Peter Andersson. Yes, it's deliberately "the cock" in the intro, read the last verse again... ;-)

I think I've had this guy in the last week...or every week...serving me food and drink. Just my luck!

The angry metal sounds of Motorhead really work for this song!

(SOTM) You're really rockin' in the bistro, Pete! Suppose those spooty, snooty, waiters end up headbanging to this tune! That would be really something. Tippin' ya $5.55 for this one. Garcon, waiter, waiter! And hold the brie.

SOTM: DKTOS, but this was really well done and a great idea!

I particularly liked the escargots/slow and the fumes/prunes couplets. Next time try fast food unless this is fast food in Sweden, in which case I'd eat at home.

Motorhead...yes! Loved some of the lines in this song...and linking the snails pace to serving the escargots. Nice job!

(SOTM) This is why it's always a good idea to bring a pack of cards to a fancy restaurant. Just in case the waiter decides to take a siesta. 555 for you, sir!

Pretty good overall--I didn't get a great big laugh out of it, but it was well written and no complaints to make
