Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet...

School is out for summer
Pile in my Hummer
We're gonna drive from Maine
Across to Santa Fe
Before we leave the state, the
kids start screaming
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"
I'm wiping sweat from my brow
I tell them it's not far now
Well these kids are driving me crazy
One more word, and
I'll turn around babe
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"

Then my daughter Kirsty
She said that she was thirsty
She drank water and a
Gallon of Gatorade
Now I need a fast path to bathroom
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
If you turn off the next street
Won't have to clean the backseat"
The rest station was closed for the day
Go round back and
Let no one see, oh
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"

Why the chili dogs, why the chili dogs
You know that you get carsick
Not jalapenos, not jalapenos
Should have stuck with celery sticks
Now your lunch is about to give way
Can't pull off so
Out the window, K?
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"
Remember the next time you spray
Try to roll the
window down first, ugh
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"

Drove through Amarillo
How I miss my pillow
The kids are fast asleep
Hours without a peep
But I know soon that they'll wake
And they'll ask me
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"
And now I'm fairly certain
We should have flown an airplane
We finally made Santa Fe
Now kids ask, "Are we going home soon? Hey!"
"Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?
Are we there yet?"

Are we there yet, baby? (until fade)

Hate to be a "Stick"ler but the original title is "Shake Your Bon-Bon": Not "Sticky Bon-Bon"

I actually think it adds to the parody to have the title be "Sticky Bon Bon." I know I laughed, and I always sing the original that way anyway. This was just fabulous, Jeff. It brought back a lot of horrendous, but hilarious memories.

(DEC5) Hah! Brilliantly evocative...reminds me of (now where's that plug?) "Chevy, Four Kids And An Ulcer" by this up and coming new parodist; Kristof Somethingorother. A hard song to parody, but you nailed it! 555

Decathlon...I said it before and I'll say it again...this is FABulous, Jeff. I love it!!!

(Dec 4) What a perfect OS for "Are We There Yet?" - that was brilliant enough, but I loved some of your couplets Jeff (particulary thirsty/Kirsty) - 555

I like sticky bon-bons more than shaken bon-bons anyway. They taste better.

my keyboard works now! i liked it before and i love it now ! "Gallon of Gatorade" get back she's gonna blow !!!

SOTM - Airplanes are not an alternative, bringing kids like that onboard should be considered an act of terrorism. (And I'm sure there's an Al-Qidda joke in that line of thinking somewhere). :-)

(SOTM) Thank goodness I still have my Ricky Martin CD. :P I loved the pacing and the way you seemed to just make up clever lyrics on the spot out of thin air like the greatest episode of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" This is phenomenal, Jeff. You've done it again. 555

SOTM! HAHAHA! I loved how you used Sticky Bon-Bon, I always thought that line sounded annoying like lil kids. GREAT stuff, 5-5-5
Red Ant - November 26, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I echo Stu's and The Charnstar's comments. Funny work, Jeff. I loved the "Go round back and let no one see" and the puking with the window up lines the best.

(SOTM) Great everyday (or, at least seasonal) occurrence, done with minimal wordage, leading up to an invevitable but funny conclusion.
Stuart McArthur - November 27, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) yes, still too scarily realistic for me, Jeff - and with Amarillo and Santa Fe mentions, it sounds like this might have been written from a real-life experience too

Now we know who J.R. REALLY is (takes off the mask, Fred style). Chevy Chase?!!? Good work.---MM
Phil Alexander - November 29, 2006 - Report this comment
It's got to the stage at home that when we're going on a trip in the car, the children have something almost like a competition to see who can say "are we nearly there yet" first - usually before the car has left the driveway. This made me grin. And grimace (at the same time) ;-)

(SOTM) See above.This one still brings a little smile to my lips when I read it....great!

DKTOS, and I couldn't bring myself to willingly experience a Ricky Martin song I'd never heard. But forget that, still enjoyable Jeff. Especially liked the line, "Out the window, K?"

(ABC4) also notable for using the annoying repetition of the original to the parody's advantage!
Matthias - August 23, 2007 - Report this comment
2nd car trip was just as fun and I love... "Remember the next time you spray try to roll the window down first, ugh". Great work Jeff.

(ABC4) loved the Amarillo/pillow forced rhyme Jeff - and I too can't understand why the kids weren't wolfing down those celery sticks - funny and true
bobpiecheese - August 31, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC4) Truly a Jeff Reuben classic...without it I woudn't have written 'Don't Say 'Are We There Yet?''! Still awesome!
Red Ant - September 01, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC4) Repetitve parts rarely work to the author's advantage, but they do so here. Great revisiting this one.

Sidenote: Puking out of a fast moving vehicle is not good either. Puke dries quickly in high winds and is really hard to clean up.

(ABC4) Jeff. . .Ricky Martin never did a "Sticky" bon bons (though that sounds really funny) . . .So I assumed naturally you meant "Shake" your Bon Bon. . .That said. . .I enjoyed this one, and it paced beautifully. . .I won't say it made me laugh out loud necessarily, but certainly a good chuckle.

(ABC) Heh heh heh, this was great! And I don't blame you for mishearing the song title, as I always thought it was "Chicka-Pom-Pom" when I was a kid. Nice work.
Mikey Squirrel - September 06, 2007 - Report this comment
ABC- The repetitive chanting of 'are we there yet?' works well for this. I can so relate to this. Good work, Jeff, very funny.
