"Cry Me a River"

Original Performer:

Ella Fitzgerald

Parody Song Title:

"Fry Me Some Liver"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Oh, I hear you groaning
Each time I ask you to
Get up and fry me some liver,
Fry me some liver,
And fry me up some kidney too.

You scold me,
Scold me when I ask for goat head
Or camel lips and pig ear,
Dismembered,
Dismembered when they're dead.

I say your tastes are plebian;
You say I eat threatened species.
For my tastes you reprove me,
Say I'd clean out the zoo.

"I'll fry no livers,
I'll fry no livers."
And then she gives me some tofu.

[Repeat last three verses]

The legend lives on from the Cotton Club down of the lady, the scat-singing herald. John Barry, thank you for this song that you do, as you rap about Ella Fitzgerald.

Thanks, Michael. I saw Ella once, toward the end of her career. Still awesome.
