Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

She's a thimble, owns some houses
Owns hotels, and utilities too
She's a thimble, crazy bout cannons
Loves horses, and the race car too!
-
It's a long day, renting and leasing
There's a railway, running through the board
And I'm a bad boy, cause I rolled three straight doubles
I'm a bad boy, so I can't pass go
-
I need Free! Free Parking!
Yeah, it's Free! Free Parking!
-
All the pieces, moving round the gameboard
Move west, down, Pacific Avenue
And all the bad boys, will rob Community Chest
But the good girls, just wan't take a Chance
-
I'm on Free! Free Parking!
Yeah on Free! Free Parking!
-
She wants to buy a, hotel on Kentucky
Don't want to land there, cause I won't survive
I'm gonna mortgage, all of my property
Gonna stay in, jail for awhile
-
Then hit Free! Free Parking!
I hit Free! Free Parking!

Hey Jeffy, I remember checking this out a while back, but apparently I forgot to comment and vote. So here's #114 for ya. Don't spend it all in one place.

I voted a long time ago but didn't comment because it was submitted to the site long before comments were enabled. So anyway, I enjoyed this parody and thought it was excellent. I have to admit that I also like playing monopoly even though I haven't done it in so long.

Yeah, it's fun to play Monopoly. I enjoyed reading this parody; it was quite outstanding!

Pacing was a bit off; actually, you didn't put in any background words, but it was really good; I vote 4-5-5.
Ethan Mawyer - February 28, 2004 - Report this comment
I think this is somewhat overrated (along with a lot of the top 100) but still pretty decent i gave you 4-5-4

From this Amazon sample:

...... I got a good sense of your pacing, which is superb. 5-5-4

Monopoly parodies are a little numerous, but this is one of two that i really like.
Jack Wilson - February 29, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS is such a great parody, I ought to give it 5's! And I did!

neminem - February 29, 2004 - Report this comment
Um. One of the funniest parodies I've seen yet, but some of the pacing was still off. I'm gonna have to go with 4/5/5 on this one. You're still awesome, though.

Thanks Neminem, Hat, Jack, Goat, Ethan, Johnny D, X, and Serafina. Regarding the pacing, I agree...I have an audio version of the song (I'll have to post that sometime as well), and it's easy to fit my words into the original song, but strictly speaking, the pacing is off in a few places (hence, I agree with the 4s, and the comments you all have left).

Wow, great. This has already had some time in sun, apparently. It's a really clever gimmick that can stand the test of time. I think I'm going 4-5-5.

I thought this was a great parody idea .I have never seen a mono;oky parody before!.. very cleverly done..
Jeff Reuben - March 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks 2nz, Claude, Martha, Claude and Mike! Claude, you probably missed it because I posted it before the time of comments.
John Jenkins - March 18, 2004 - Report this comment
Very good parody, especially the "Community Chest" and "Chance" lines.
David Pratter - April 05, 2004 - Report this comment
I am writing this comment, because I didn't know that this parody was already written prior to me just submitting mine. However, the lyrics are completely different, so you can tell I wasn't copying. I am sorry, I honestly wasn't aware about this parody until "Parody Police" left a comment on mine. However, this is a good one too, sorry I wasn't totally original with mine. I like both this version and my own!

Thank you Jeff for reading my parody, I'm glad you liked my version of this song too! I'm glad you take no offense on it, I appreciate comments on all my parodies, I take pride in writing them.

I'd give you #145 but I already gave you #114. I still like it, and still think a Monopoly album would be fun. We need to come up with something for "Community Chest."
Paul Robinson - June 03, 2004 - Report this comment
Jeff - missed this one whenever it came out. 4-5-5 feels about right here. Good fun and a universal story line, at least for almost everyone who grew up in America.

This year is Monopoly's 70th Anniversary! (Parker Brothers patented the game in 1935.)
