The Lyrics

For Ages of Amiright, Part 2. OS: http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=QJeEYOB4lKU http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=9z7t-Ox3XvU
JENNA:
I’m not trying to consume you…

Jenna’s me, I’m cooking macaroni
Cheddar cheese and pieces of bologna
Jenna Skinner
I’m a winner
My new friend’s coming here for dinner
He’s Kevin
He’s heaven
He’s coming here at 6, maybe 7

KEVIN:
Got a date at Jenna’s for a plate of macaroni
And it’s melted with some cheddar cheese and pieces of bologna
Maybe after dinner she’ll have something sweet to show me
Yay, macaroni! (Aha!)

Macaroni’s easy, you don’t have to be Buitoni
You just boil it in hot water till the water’s almost foamy
Drain it with a colander and add some abalone
Yay, macaroni! (Cinch!)

JENNA:
Now don’t you look for my ex, Tony
He said, “Can’t stand your macaroni.”
He’s a big lout
I said, “Get out!”
Kicked his face in, and I…ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…

Hey, come on! What was I supposed to do?
He was out of line, and his comments were soooo lame!

KEVIN:
Sitting at her table with a plate of macaroni
And she’s hovering above me as I bite into bologna
Yeesh, the meat is tangy and the macaroni’s stony
Hard macaroni! (Yucch!)

Something’s really off about this plate of macaroni
But I better not let on it’s bad or else she might disown me
I act so convincingly I ought to win a Tony
Yum, macaroni! (Yeesh!)

(instrumental break/bridge)

(VARIOUS VOICES:
Ohhh…ohhh…arrrgh…
Ha, ha, ha, ha…

I’m not trying to consume you…

Mac mac mac mac mac mac macaroni
Mac mac mac mac mac mac macaroni
Mac mac mac mac mac mac macaroni…

Mac mac mac mac mac mac macaroni
Mac mac mac mac mac mac macaroni
Mac mac mac mac mac mac macaroni
Macaroni macaroni macaroni macaroni

KEVIN:
Should have gone to Angelo’s for Pizza Pepperoni
Where it’s served with Caesar salad or a bowl of minestrone
Then a cool dessert like cherry cheesecake or spumoni
No—macaroni! (Yucch!)

Sneak off to a petting zoo and feed this to a pony
I should write a nasty letter to the people at Ronzoni
“Is this what you meant by your ‘Ronzoni sono buoni’?”
Bad macaroni! (F’gool!)

VARIOUS VOICES:
Arrggh…oh…eull…

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…uh-oh…)

JENNA:
Kevin’s strained, and he picks his macaroni
Now he’s smiling at me, but his grin, it looks so phony
He’s so sweet
He downs meat
Hey, you want seconds? Come, have a repeat…

KEVIN:
Better keep this grin on as I chew more macaroni
I heard Jenna’s so short-tempered, so I’m acting like a phony
‘Cause if I eject it, she’ll run back to her ex, Tony
Eat macaroni! (Eull!)

Rancid cheddar cheese and oversalted macaroni
Oh my God my stomach’s churning and ejecting sour bologna
Running to the toilet as my food is screaming, “Throw me!”
Heave macaroni! (Spew!)

Stay here at the toilet and expel this macaroni
Hey, or else they’ll have to bury me and etch upon my stone-y
“Herein lies the body of one Kevin James Mahoney!”
Ill macaroni (Thud!)

Lying down, I’m sick in bed and list’ning to Marconi
As it’s singing “Like a Virgin” by Madonna L. Ciccone
Jenna, by the way, is phoning her ex-lover Tony
Dumb macaroni! (Ohhh…)

Jenna says she’s sorry that she turned me into stony
And she’s gonna call her Mama, learn to cook that macaroni
Now we snuggle closer as we’re watching Jay and Coney
Yay, macaroni! (Aha!)

I hated the OS but loved this. Great job.

I prefer making Polenta, as the aroma of it baking, is just so nice . . . and as a Hot cereal with freshFruit & Milk au Goat in the AM, it is divine, Sir !

It's dinner and entertainment! Great work here Melanie! Really fun and difficult amount of rhyming here to boot.

Well, I had to take a look at the song that spawned so many comments on the messageboard. Looks like a good song about a dinner date :) As Matty said, great job with the rhyme scheme.

What is the fuss about? It is a parody about a date! A very good one! top marks for your hard work. how many times did you listen to this awful song during writing? you deserve a medal. 555

Macarena...Macaroni. Very interesting. Move over, Weird Al! This is a very hard song to do a parody on, but you, ma'am, hit it off perfectly!! I eat three kinds of macaroni dishes: Mac and Cheese, Macaroni Salad, and my father's Elbow Macaroni Soup. Your song is sooooo funny! I love the part where Kevin wretches off Jenna's Macaroni. I'd say, Jenna must be an awful cook. 5's all the way, Mel!
Matthias - December 19, 2008 - Report this comment
I agree with Tomario's reponce on this, I don't know why everybody is trying to put it down because it's about a date for sure. There's no reason that this could not be about a date, other than the fact that it's a dinner date and that happens between friends sometimes too, but the fact that this guy wants to win her over by eating her crappy Macaroni means it's for sure a date. Agrimorfee and Arwen can you two please explain yourselves?
Arwen - December 19, 2008 - Report this comment
Wow, Matthias, wow. I'm sorry if I'm a little bit bugged by your comment. I never "put it down." Ever. I never would...it's a fine parody.

If I were to read this parody outside of the contest, however, I would think "that was a funny parody about Macaroni." I wouldn't think "that was a funny parody about a date." In my opinion, just because something happens "on a date" doesn't mean that the parody is about dating.

Take for example, my parody "I've Broken a Bone, Now." That parody officially "takes place" on a date...but I wouldn't put it in the category of a "date" parody. It's about being clumsy...or bodily injury...whatever. And that's my opinion...which I'm entitled to.

As I said, over on the thread...the popular vote will prevail...Agri and I are certainly not "everybody" as you said...and if the rest of you choose to vote for this...then it will win. What's the big deal??

It's no different from certain people finding certain parodies to be funny...when others do not. It's a matter of opinion...of personal taste...and nobody should be asked to "explain" themselves over expressing their opinion.

(Ages) A fine write of an annoying OS. Perhaps PB&J should be Jenna and Kevin's next meal. :-)
Matthias - December 20, 2008 - Report this comment
Arwen... I didn't mean it the way you took it at all. I just wanted to know how you too didn't think that this was about dating, when it was about a dinner date. I understand your points here, but I didn't mean any offense and I'm sorry if it came off that way.
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - December 20, 2008 - Report this comment
(Ages) Mmm, had similar thoughts regarding the topic, but as it's not about deep-sea diving or income tax, I think there's enough there to relate it to a dating theme. A tour de force of end rhyme here and truly well writted. 555g of pasta.
Arwen - December 22, 2008 - Report this comment
Ages--ahhh...back for an official comment. I thought this was funny, Melanie...well paced, and fun...I hope my comments never came across to the contrary. Nice work...this is a dinner date that I'm glad wasn't my own...=)
Melanie Lee - December 27, 2008 - Report this comment
Thanks for the comments, and the controversy! Of course it's a dinner date! Since the category was broadly presented as "The Dating Scene" and anything that had to do with it, well, this fits, too! What if I had written about a couple of twelve-year-olds going together to an amusement park and the girl wanted to kiss the boy? Wouldn't that be part of "The Dating Scene" too? Also, I think one of the judge was thrown because this parody also touches on (unknown to me at the time) the next category, Food or Dieting. Doesn't a lot of dating involve food?

(Ages) I never thought it would bes possible to parody Macarena, let alone parody it well. You've certainly proved me wrong, Melanie, this one should get into my top 5 for sure. 555, and a stomach pump for Tony.
Agrimorfee - December 29, 2008 - Report this comment
(Ages) Let it be known that i have no qualms about the content of your song as it applies to this contest in spite of what I posted at the message board. This was the most creative that I have read so far in this round-- to have a storyline with 2 POVs going through, one for the girl and one for the boy. So many "-oni" rhyming words! Funny stuff.
tomario - December 29, 2008 - Report this comment
(ages) some great lines in here must have taken you a while. i loved "As it’s singing “Like a Virgin” by Madonna L. Ciccone" oh i did chuckle
EmiLoca - December 29, 2008 - Report this comment
(Ages) Several LOL moments and superb tackling of a tough OS. That said, you can't expect me to believe this is a song about a date. It's Top Ramen until he's proposed, girrrl. ;-)
Glen S - January 07, 2009 - Report this comment
LOL, points for making this song bearable for a couple of minutes again. Too bad Kevin's a liar
Below Average Dave - January 07, 2009 - Report this comment
(Ages) this song is rarely parodied because of it's difficultly level, very impressive with the rhyme scheme, having taken this one on myself, I know what a pain you went through to write this.
