The Lyrics

Red beans and rice
Mm mm...mmm, mmm, mmm, mmmmmm
Red beans and rice
Mm mm...mmm, mmm, mmm, mmmmmm

Can't run to the border
To find, best side orders
Cole slaw, french fries, corn
I must find, find a place to go

To get red beans and rice
Mm mm...mmm, mmm, mmm, mmmmmm

Heading off to Popeye's, to find
Curly french fries
Crunchy, greasy, hot
Tastes just fine, and they sure would go

Great with red beans and rice
Mm mm...mmm, mmm, mmm, mmmmmm
Red beans and rice
Mm mm...mmm, mmm, mmm, mmmmmm

Someone took my order
And they say that they'll make it
Just for me
Someone said it's my drink they're pouring
Someone starts frying

Red beans and rice
Mm mm...mmm, mmm, mmm, mmmmmm

I couldn't pass up a song about red beans and rice..............mmmmmmmm. Guy, as long as there is red beans and rice, why don't you do one about Pasta Guitano?

They do seem to do a lot of food stuff out here. I think they were all inspired by the greatest bard of parody, Weird Al himself with that 'Eat it' parody he did so well. If I get a clue, you may get a view. I'll stash that idea away.

Enjoyed it!

I did too; surprised that not many people commented and/or voted.

Jeff R - Don't know original song so I couldn't vote. Red Beans & Rice are cool in a very hot kind of way, but I don't scarf them much anymore. "Popeye's"...ooohhh, really liked the spicy-ness but that stuff kills me these days...

Thanks X and Paul, I think this one didn't get more votes because people don't know the original.
Paul Robinson - January 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Jeff - well, the vote count looks to have picked up a bit today so it may have been just missed by most folks when originally posted. I do think quite a few more people are looking at this site and voting in the last few months (I didn't here until around Nov.10th).

I was tempted to vote 4 for pacing, since you didn't quite finish it at the end, but many of us who know the original know that the title is repeated several times at the end, so I went ahead and voted 5 in all three categories.

Thanks Max, you're all heart! Now how in the world did you come across this =) I ran out of words from the original song pretty quickly, so not one of my best efforts, but I had the chorus stuck in my head so I had to do it.

(ABC) That's a funny one, dude! That brings back some sweet memories of MTV in the '80s, when they actually played music videos. 555

(ABC) 5's and Popeye's biscuits

(ABCs) It was well done, but I just didn't find it funny, as there was a real niche for flatulence jokes here.
Johnny D - September 07, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) Hey, Jack Wilson oughta check out this one!

Jeff, I love ya, but there really wasn't much here.
Peregrin - September 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, like the above comments, it wasn't overly funny, but sometimes parodies are good if they are just kept plain simple, and I thought Jeff did well with what there was.

(ABC's) Restoring my 555 vote.

(ABC) - Jeff - still a DKTOS to me, but I sure did love those Popeye's Red Beans & Rice side orders. Although I don't dare eat them anymore.

Fives with that, sir?

I've got to commend you for going against the Atkins fad, but it was lacking a great punch line.
Phil Alexander - September 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Not one of your best, Jeff - rather fun, anyway.
