my long gestating book of U2 parodies will be complete by the end of the year. it's being typeset and i'm almost done every song by U2 (including some covers). i'll be releasing a free e-book. this is purely a labour of love.

anyway, i've already finished 5 of the new 11 tracks from the new album which i'll include in the first edition. here's a couple of samples!

------------------------------------------------------------

Call Ranger Smith (Is There No End To Lunch)
Parody of 'California (There Is No End To Love)
---------------------------------------------------

Ba-Ba-Barbera, Hanna Barbera
Ba-Ba-Barbera, Hanna Barbera
Ba-Ba-Barbera, Hanna Barbera
Ba-Ba-Barbera, Hanna Barbera

Call Ranger Smith 
Yogi smells something he'd like to eat 
Heads straight here in a flash of brown
Smells... travel through trees
Beware of Yogi
Disappeared
Picnic basket
Snatching your pies
So, yeah, maybe
Call Ranger Smith 
You thought bears would never come
But he did like he always does

Ranger shows
And he tells that damn bear "NO!
Is there no end to lunch?!"

He doesn't care, dude
Words can't scare that bear away
Every chance he gets...flash of brown
You're gonna be light for dinner
He just can't be swayed
"Hey there, Boo Boo!"
Says the sinner
Watching those pies
And thinking 'maybe'

Call Ranger Smith 
Stuffed picnic basket:
Things he's gonna seize
He can't help himself
Can't transcend a thief
That's how it goes 

Ranger shows
And he tells that bear "LIE LOW!
Is there no end to lunch?!
Why is there no
Yeah, is there no end to lunch?!!"

Called, he shows up and pleads once more
"Is there no...
Yeah, is there no end to lunch?!!"

Ba-Ba-Barbera, Hanna
Is there no end to lunch?!

Ranger shows
And he tells that damn bear "NO!
Why is there no...
Yeah, is there no end to lunch?!!"
Hey, doncha know?
He's smarter than the average bear!
He's smarter...and has your stuff!

Eat Like You're 80 Tonight
Parody of 'Sleep Like A Baby Tonight'
-----------------------------------------------

Mourning pot roast
No grease, nor sugar
Cede to a diet while you recover
Says the wife: "no butter!"
Ice cream?: "no way!"
Sad but true
Impressed not with your Jell-O
Beets earn distress
Your eyes with dread
You grimace
Purple cabbage in a bowl looking pretty bare

You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight
Your regime: everything will be light
With sorrow, dawns on you that there'll be nothing fried
You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight

Seems
That your body's a mess, teeming
With a bad virus that is scheming
Where the doc says your plight
Will need healing... no, no

You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight
Your regime: everything will be light
With sorrow, long for something fried
You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight

Mope as you'll endure this
Eat steamed perch that is tasteless
The food unappeals
The food is all plain

You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight
Your regime: everything will be light
With sorrow, long for something fried
You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight

You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight
Taste deferred...nothing will excite
You reminisce of things with more bite
You're gonna eat like you're eighty tonight

The Miracle (Of Tasty Ramen)

Parody of "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)"
---------------------------------------------
 
I was craving food for days I fear
Starving for what seemed like the whole school year
I was aching to eat a pickle spear
Rejoice at one bean curd
 
I was shaking from hunger in me
Wanted to buy pizza so I could now eat
Yeah, I wanted to eat some spaghetti
Stomach makes noise
Stomach now hurts
 
There's not one
Mere crumb 
Just wishing i had some bread
I'd do
With stew
For a few Slim Jims I would pray
 
I'm broke right at the moment
Need a miracle, yes sir
Won't be long before I count cents
Like they were pearls
Every cushion that I'll toss
Hid money I once earned
Buy the most affordable meal I could afford 
 

It's a banquet to me in this poor state
Provision that I can hope will sate
Checking it for an expiry date in vain
Oh well, it's all the same
 
On my tongue
It's yum
Just wishing it reminded
That you
Should use
Caution to not burn your mouth away
 
I'm broke right at the moment
Need a miracle, yes sir
Won't be long before I count cents
Like they were pearls
Every cushion that I'll toss
Hid money I once earned
Buy the most affordable meal I could afford 
 
I can eat food, eat food!
I can eat food!
I can eat food, eat food!
 
I'm broke right at the moment
Need a miracle, yes sir
I'd get so many things like some hors d'oeuvre
Every cushion that I'd toss
All the stolen milk crates
Hid some cash that I once earned
Buy the most affordable meal I could afford 

Rejoices will be heard
Rejoices will be heard

Canned Stuff Oddity

Parody of “Stand Up Comedy'
---------------------------------

 

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

 

I got some canned stuff with label stripped

You and I have been guessing for hours

What is this canned stuff?!

Ain't too farfetched to think it's not even ours

Canned stuff 

Swear that one time we bought some Irish stew

I'm gonna open this unknown canned stuff

For my lunch

 

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

 

Canned stuff...this is... broccoli?

This mystery quandary may well test our smarts

It's canned soup? Canned cut green beans? Corn?
But while we're sweating with uncertainty

Pop open this stupid thing and it'll probably be gravy

 

Doubt that it's canned brown bread

Maybe it's treacle?
Canned stuff for my lunch...

 

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

 

I got this canned stuff...escargo? 

Not escargo...but maybe pie filling that's lemony?

It's likely cake frosting

Or plain date puree?

Or... i'd gauge... just canned strawberry?!


Canned stuff... not clear jars

Neapolitan Sauce for my meals?

"Kidney Beans?", you're helpful 

Then again I've no idea

 

Doubt that it's canned brown bread

Maybe it's treacle?
Canned stuff for my lunch...

 

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch


I'm out of

Out of any conclusion

To my dismay

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

 

We're @#$% people guessing on

We're @#$% people guessing on

Maybe it's treacle?

Can of sliced pears?

Maybe it's simple?

Some stuff that's some noun I can't think of?

Lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch, lunch

Cheez Whiz

Parody of "This Is" (Aslan cover)
----------------------------------

 

Cheese' is at hand in a cheap spray can

'Cheese' in a gold paste? Wowed! 

'Cheese' synthesized with that good cheese flavour

Tasting very fattening, loud

'Cheese' that's embraced by my teenage brother

'Cheese' that's a mild affair

'Cheese' that i'll dole out on some crackers

Serving for the guests as fare

 

'Cheese' I can mete out to famished children

And when I'm stuck, I'll garnish stuff

If you close your eyes

You'd be real surprised

Tasting will belie this goo

 

Everybody thinks it's so repealing

Embodies all that's very bland

This slop, this gook

That merchants are all vending

It comes in a jar or spray

'Cheese' that just seems less of a bother

In so many countless ways

I'll eat it piled

On some french fries
Putting it on things I've made

'Cheese' that, for years, will last in shelters

This yellow bile, when doom's above,

Come Man's demise,

You'll 

You'll take one bite & reapprise



Here with you
No one here but you
No one moves but you
Nobody touches like you
You...
Nobody moves like you
But everybody hits you
Everybody knocks you down

These are the feet of a punished pilgrim
And to the book he prays
You see his eyes
You see no surprise
You just see lights then you realise
