The Lyrics

My name's Veruca
I am the Salt of the Earth
I live better than you
Yes, 'cause Daddy knows what it's worth
The Golden Ticket will be my prize
Have Daddy's minions work overtime
Rip those wrappers all for us
Rip those wrappers all for us
Rip those wrappers all for us

Some kids think I'm nasty
And that I talk too loud
Least I'm not a hog or ditzy
Unlike some others in this crowd
They can eat s*** until they die
Because I'll win and then they'll cry
I will buy up all the candy stores
I will buy up all the candy stores
I will buy up all the candy stores

So on our tour today
Saw the Golden Goose I loved
How much will my Daddy pay?
I want it now, hear what I say
Something happened when I climbed on top
The platform opened, and then I dropped
Near the furnace, here I am!
Near the furnace, here I am!
Near the furnace, here I am!

My name's Veruca
I live in second world
The same thing happens to me
But this time, I'm attacked by squirrels!
This kind of treatment, it just ain't right
So what if my Daddy is not too bright?
Please don't blame me, not my fault
Please don't blame me, not my fault
Please don't blame me, not my fault

I heard now Bucket just won the prize
He was no trouble, was kind and wise
Please don't say it anymore
Please don't say it anymore
Please don't say it anymore

I hated this OS when it came out, but any parody about Wonka is better than snozberries.

Your song choices are always so cool and unique, 5's, you did well with what you had to work with lyrically

(Imitating Veruca's whiny voice): I want an Oompa-Loompa now!!! (Can't resist that). Well done, Agri! Allow me to "spoil" you with 3 unianimous 5's! I also look forward forward for you to do some parodies on Mike Teavee, Augustus Gloop, Charlie Bucket, and Willy Wonka, that is, if you want to.

Nice work, Agg. 555.

Hey, Christie--you forgot Violet...uh, whatsername...the gum-chewing girl. Crap! I can't think of her last name...

Jonathan S., she didn't forget, because of http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/threedognight80.shtml

ABC (UV)- Nice job! Never heard the original song before, but I love the ORIGINAL Willy Wonka movie. 555 golden geese for you!

Did you really dedicate an entire song to a secondary character from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory??? Wow. . .I didn't laugh all that much here, but I was impressed with the idea and execution
Agrimorfee - October 28, 2010 - Report this comment
Dave, look for "Augustus G", "Violet B", "Mike T" and of course, "Charlie B"...didn't you read one of these before?

For someone named Salt she surely likes it sweet. This one is worth its salt and it's one sweety of a parody.. Love the OS and I love how you handled this one. The Veruca character really puts the salt in the old wound. Fine write, Ag.

(ABC5) Coulda sworn I read this one before...maybe I'm just confusing it with some other parody. Probably the "Charlie B" one. Anyway, yeah, Veruca's a real piece of work, ain't she? Good parody, not fantastic, but still well done, worth some 5's.

(ABC Tournament) Nice to read this parody again! Spoiling you with more 5's!
