DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: Fries Again (Rise Again parody)
From: Haruo
Date: 18 Feb 13 - 12:28 PM

Last night at Seattle Song Circle a couple of take-offs on "The Mary Ellen Carter" were sung to great delight. One, Eensy-Weensy Spider, is well-documented here, but the second, "Fries Again", I can't find any mention of, so I thought I would post the lyrics as provided by Viv llo Veith, who sang it:

Fries Again

Zeke Hoskins first verses, Chris Roe second verses

TTTO Mary Ellen Carter

I am an office worker pushing paper for my pay
I don't go out and face the wind or cut down trees all day
I don't fight the kind of dangers that can quickly strike you dead
When my job kills, it kills you slow instead

For I don't get that much exercise, I'd take a heart attack
If I ate the kind of meals it takes to feed a lumberjack
But when I forget to bring my lunch, it always gives me pain
Cause the cafeteria's serving fries again

Fries again! Fries again!
Enough saturated fat to feed a family of ten
All I carry is my debt load, all I'm pushing is my pen
But the cafeteria's serving fries again.

Sometimes I think they do it just to watch my levels rise
Every crispy golden morsel (mouthful?) spelling premature demise
Insurance pays the loss if I should finally be laid low
But darn it! it's just not my time to go

And in the end it's just an exercise of discipline of mind
I won't forget those veggie snacks and yogurt one more time
Tomorrow noon I'll be prepared to cheerfully disdain
The devil's own potato, fries again!

Many parodies at the following site

although Fries Again is not as complete as the one you've posted, Haruo.

That's because it's not all Zeke's work. The second half is by Chris Roe.
