Sandy Paton Lyr Add: Short Songs/Parodies (81* d) RE: Lyr Add: Short Songs/Parodies 26 Apr 05

Stan Kelly, in London, 1957, sang:

We live in the attic and we pay no rent
And it's all very kind of Jesus.

(Complete song)

Gwynne Gardner, who works for us at Folk-Legacy, made up this parody (with her sister's help) back in the 1950s when they were both kids. You young 'uns probably know the melody, but I only know it as "Ta ra ra boom de-ay." Anyway, here's their song:

It's Howdy Doody time
The show ain't worth a dime
And as for Uncle Bob,
He does a lousy job.
And as for Howdy Doody,
He is a tootie fruitie.
It is a crummy show,
Let's let them know.... pfffft! (Bronx cheer)

A fifth grader in Waterbury, Connecticut, gave us this re-write of the Mickey Mouse song about 20 years ago:
    Melvin Moose, Melvin Moose,
    Forever let us hold our antlers high.
    Come along and hanve some fun
    And eat some grass with me.
    M-E-L - V-I-N -   M-O-O-S-E!
