Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Scientists find a dodo perfectly preserved in a glacier...
Intro: Not extinct!
Not extinct!
Not extinct!
Not extinct!

Verse 1: We found the Dodo frozen in ice
We don’t know how it got there, but it still is nice
Was preserved! Oh how we jawed!
So we ran, ran, ran to get this cold bird thawed

Hook: But somethin’ happened and, something ain’t right
When that bird thawed out, it was a great sight
It was breathing, no not dead!
Must be dreaming
But then he reached for a mic and he said

Chorus: “Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
Hate to tell him that he’s walking solo
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
I don’t wanna listen to a Dodo cry
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
I’m wonderin’ just how much he know-ows
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
I looked at him and I sighed
“I’m sorry they all died!”

Oh, no

Verse 2: He asked, “How did this happen and when?”
“You were all gone by seventeen hundred and ten”
Turned a calm bird into a loon
Have one more question, gotta ask him soon

Hook: Just how’d you come to be encased?
Only a dumb fool, would rest in that place
Come on tell me, tell me why
How’d you get there? How’d you get preserved in ice?

Chorus: “Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
But now he knows that there are just no mo’
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
I don’t wanna miss it when he does reply
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
Don’t keep me hangin’ on like a yo-yo
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
This bird escaped from time
And I wonder why!

Why!? Why!? Why!?
Dodo!
Not extinct!
Not extinct! (Woo!)

Bridge: And then he told us, of a dove
Whom he was to profess his love
We went looking, and what we did find
Found his love, and she is alright!

Not extinct!

Chorus: “Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
Who needs’em when he has got his JoJo
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
I don’t wanna miss it when they reunite
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
And now he’s no longer rollin’ solo
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
Lovers trapped in ice

Chorus: “Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
Who needs’em when he has got his JoJo
(Don’t you love to see a living dodo, dodo, dodo)
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
I don’t wanna miss it when they reunite
(They are alive! A boom, boom, boom, boom!)
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
And now he’s no longer rollin’ solo
“Where the hell are all the Dodos?”
Lovers trapped in ice

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

I am not a Dodo bird, but I have said that I am crazier than four and twenty loons baked in a fruitcake! :-D Anyways, excellent work on your parody! No dodo about it! It's great! ;-) 5's

Where are all the dodos? I can tell you where they were in 1984: Buying Wham! records.

Blayde - You've proven that clever parody is not extinct on this site! ;D

File this under Warner Brothers Seven Arts... I mean, Five Arts.

This parody kind of reminds me of "Ice Age". I can guess all the dodo's possibly are in 1984 performing with the Go-Go's! Here's a load of dodo's worth $555!!
Wendy Christopher - April 13, 2011 - Report this comment
Fabulous - well worth a 555! Now, if we can just get George Michael to sing it - I don't believe he's that busy at the moment... ;^)

This is my favorite now of your work, Blaydeman! Original idea, a little bit of research, clever lines and rhymes with flowing pace, a good story with a rousing conclusion...perfect!
Below Average Dave - April 25, 2011 - Report this comment
Well. . . that was very unique, I pretty much agree with Agri, second only to AI on your portfolio Blayde, nice work
Matthias - April 25, 2011 - Report this comment
I'm the third person here to agree with Aggy (it seems to happen quite a lot). This was without a doubt your best work (which is surprising because the OS is so bad... Sorry but it's true. It's probably the most annoying song ever made).

(Artistry) When he found out he was the last one, did he say D'oh! D'oh! Fun concept and writeup.
bobpiecheese - May 10, 2011 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Very unique and interesting parody, tight pacing, great story, all the fixings. Probably the only problem would be that I can't STAND the OS, it's one of the few songs I can say that I hate. Won't hold that against ya, that'd be stupid. 555, you ain't no dodo!
Syncronos - May 13, 2011 - Report this comment
Too bad dodos taste like chicken, otherwise we'd have 555 of them flying around by now. I love this!

Your comment on my "Take a Bow" parody led me here. Very cute parody to an upbeat, catchy song. Good job! 5/5/5.
