The Lyrics

On my latest trip to McDonald's, I saw a possum in the road who didn't quite move fast enough...and this song was playing on the radio. Funny how inspiration works, ain't it?
Hit it!
These ain't no riblets
It ain't no chicken club either
This is roadkill!

"Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun, I swear to God,"
Says the man next to me out of nowhere
He's chowin' down on somethin'
He says his name's William- which is short
for Billy Joe Jimmy Bob Harry
And he's plain ugly to me
And I wonder if he's ever spent a day in school in his whole life
We are eatin' grub at noon on Tuesday
In a shack that faces a giant pig farm
The good people of the world are chasing them pigs
'Round the pig pen, reachin' and grabbin'
As best they can in cowboy boots
They take their yummy pork chops and bacon
Up to the pig butcher, slaughterhouse too
Well, that ain't nothing like Billy and me, cause

Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I got a feeling, this thing was underdone
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I got a feeling, this thing was underdone
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
Made from the roadkill found down on Santa Monica Boulevard

I hate this meat with fuzz early in the morning
But Billy likes to skin the creatures
To get rid of the blood
He shreds them in the shed
Then he puts every thing in an oversized pot
Letting each one burn down to this thick substance
Before dishing and serving it up
And he's watching the puddles of blood as they sit on the floor
Two happy cousins enter the shed
Dangerously close to one another
The pig farmers look up from their pigpens

Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I got a feeling, this thing was underdone
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I got a feeling, this thing was underdone
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
Made from the roadkill found down on Santa Monica Boulevard

Otherwise the stew is ours,
The day and the night and the pig farm too
The carcass and the blood and the clean and dirty pigs
Yes...I know I'm drunk and this don't go in the song...but

Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I got a feeling, this thing was underdone
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I got a feeling, this thing was underdone
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I've got a feeling, that this meal has just begun
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
I won't tell ya, where this meat came from
Eatin' possum stew, it ain't much fun
Made from the roadkill found down on Santa Monica Boulevard
Made from the roadkill found down on Santa Monica Boulevard

Better than eating Crow (rim shot here) Great job

But hey...if it makes you happy, it can't be that bad (additional rim shot and groan here)

So there's two things worse than squirrel pudding... very good read. I'm a big fan of your work. I doubt you'd know me, I've only been active on the site for about a month. I did parody a while back that combined Billy Joel and Samus Aran that was inspired by your 'I wanna Play Nintendo' parody, which was also an excellent read. If ya can't forgive my self-promotion then I understand, but if ya can, the link is provided below. It's just so hard to find a fellow gamer on this site right now. http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/billyjoel112.shtml

You're not alone. Me and Rice Cube are gamers, as well as the infamous Florio brothers. YOu're in the right place...perhaps we could do a duet or something

I actully havent played Nintendo is a loooong time.....egh, whatever..amazing parody Sync, its great to see you writing again (now I need to get off my butt and write...)

I'd be up for that, Syncronos. I've been trying for decent Link/Zelda but I can't seem to find a fitting song.
Rice Cube - January 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Nintendo is all about Mario and Mario Kart ;-) I liked this one.

I'm also a gamer, by the way. You'll notice I have two gaming parodies so far. So I couldn't help but follow your link, 2nz, despite not knowing the source song (which I then proceeded to download).

Thanks neminem. These really don't look like comments for a non-game parody anymore. Look what I started...

Syncronos, Man, all those prior comments make me feel so freaking old!! I guess that's part of the "Law of UnNintendoed Consequences" (rim shot here). And I am fully Non-Nintendoed, but this was an absolutely fantastic job! I really enjoyed it. Pace & flow perfect to original and so was the "feel" of it. Words BETTER than original on both Comedic and actual level (And I say that even though I really LIKE the original song). The Possum Stew may have been Underdone (A rather Retch-Inducing thought), but this parody was done to perfection and served with just the right side orders. I'd ask for a second helping but the Doctor told me to limit my Roadkill consumption. Nice work!!

CP and Sync: Doing bad puns on Sheryl Crow songs is my favorite mistake. (Weak rim shot and several groans)

Sync, I got an idea for a duet that you might be interested in about the x-men. I don't really know how to contact you, so PM me on the message boards if you're interested.
