Subject: Challenge: Parody of Blood-Red Roses
From: Charley Noble
Date: 28 Jan 10 - 08:50 AM

I was "cheering up" a friend with a thread down in the BS section with a parody verse of the traditional shanty "Blood-Red Roses", reflecting on the hard economic times we find ourselves in. I'm wondering if there are other verses that come to mind from your own or imagined experiences. Here's my contribution:

My home theater system's all in pawn,
Go down, you bloodsucking bastards, go down!,/i>
And it's mighty drafty when the oil's all gone!
Go down, you bloodsucking bastards, go down!

Ohhhhh, you pimps and posers!
Go down, you bloodsucking bastards, go down!

Here's a version of the original shanty:

Blood-Red Roses

Me bon-nie bunch o' ro-ses-o!
Go down, ye blood-red roses, go down!
It's time for us to roll and go,
Go down, ye blood-red roses, go down!

Chorus:

Ohhhh, ye pinks and posies!
Go down, ye blood-red roses, go down!

Me boots an' clothes are all in pawn!...
And it's mighty drafty round Cape Horn...


We're bound away to Iquique Bay?
We're bound away at break of day?

'Tis growl ye may but go ye must?
Ye growl too hard, yer head they'll bust?

Oh, rock an' shake 'er is the cry?
The bleedin' topm'st sheave is dry?

Now, one more pull an' that'll do?
'Cause we're the lads to kick 'er through

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I see I screwed up the italics above.

Here's another verse:

'Tis growl ye may but go ye must...
As the Feds bail out the Wall Street trusts...

What a lazy bunk of lurkers! I have to do all the heavy lifting myself.

There's one rolling around in my head, but it hasn't gathered enough fluff to turn into a chorus and verse yet.
Quack!

quack!..

here's a start

Blood-Red Roses

Me Johnnie's such a poser -o!
Go down, ye bloody poser, go down!
It's time for you to get damn real,
Go down, ye bloody poser, go down!

Chorus:

Ohhhh, ye metro loser!
Go down, ye gutless boozer, go down!

Yr boots an' clothes are torn and tough!...
Yr woman likes ye a little rough...

We're bound to loiter in E- Bay?
We're to shop and then to cyber pay?

We're bound away to the IKEA* store...
We'll buy more junk, come back for more...

IKEA is of course a major Swedish home furnishing store, featuring bolt-together cabinets, and much much more.
