I'm not sure this song is worthy of a DTStudy thread, but it's kinda useless in the DT if it has no context. It's marked as a parody, but what's it a parody of? I see that Mmario got a tune for it somehow, but what's the tune and where's Mmario's file? One thread says Mmario sent me the file, but I can't find it. More info, please!!

I AM LARD (from DT)

In the beat of your heart and the clothes that you wear
I'm the lure in your meals and the love that you bear
I live deep in your flesh, feel me move, feel me rise
In your heart, in your veins, in your thighs

I am Lard, I am weight sweating drops on your shirt
I am food, and your form I will doom from your birth
It takes strength to be free, banish snacks if you`re wise
For your heart, for your veins, for your thighs

I am hips, I get all, I will come 'cos I must
Bringing carbos and fats for your waist and your bust
Arteries my domain, for your death is my prize
From your heart, from your veins, from your thighs

I will clot in your blood, I will ooze from each pore
When your dinner is done you will scream for more
New York steak, baked potato, sour cream and chives
For your heart, for your veins, for your thighs

I am Lard, hear my dirge in the beat of your heart
I am Lard, I take life-- I will make yours depart
I am Lard, hear me laugh, feel me move, feel me rise
In your heart, in your veins, in your thighs

It looks like all the sites with the original lyrics have a video of the wrong tune associated with them.

OK, #, I give you credit for solving part of the mystery. it's clear that "I Am Lard" is a parody of the Gwen Zak/Leslie Fish song titled "I Am Lord." the lyrics page at letssingit.com has a YouTube recording of "Here I Am Lord" (a song by the St. Louis Jesuits), and I'm quite sure that's not the tune. So, what IS the tune?

I AM LORD

Lyrics © 19?? Gwen Zak
Melody © 19?? Leslie Fish

I'm the beat of your heart
In the guise that you wear
I'm the spark in your eye
For the love that you dare
I live deep in your breast
Feel me move, feel me rise
In your heart, in your soul
In your eyes

I am Lord, I am Light
Shining bright on the Earth
I am Love, and your soul
I will guide to rebirth
I am strength to be free
From all fear, if you're wise
In your heart, in your soul
In your eyes

I am Death, I touch all
I will come as I must
Bringing comfort and rest,
For your souls are my trust
And reunion my gift
Beyond death is the prize
For your heart, for your soul
For your eyes

I will pulse in your blood
I will ring from your core
When the Lady, my love,
Gives you flesh once more
You will meet and remember
The loves of your lives
For your heart and your soul
Are my eyes

I am Lord, I am Love
I'm the beat of your heart
I am Lord, I am Life
I'm the seed of your start
I am Lord, hear me laugh,
Feel me move, feel me rise
In your heart, in your soul
In your eyes

In your heart, in your soul
In your eyes

Hmmm. Fanlore.org says:
    Plus Ça Change is a filk album by Kathy Mar. Two of its songs won Pegasus Awards: Drink Up A River won Best Filk Song in 1994 after also being nominated for the same award in 1991, and Velveteen won Best Love Song in 1991, after being nominated for Best Filk Song in 1990. "I Am Lord" was also nominated for Best Spiritual Song in 1996.


So, "I Am Lard" is a parody of a pagan filk song. It was submitted to the Digital Tradition by AJS. Who dat?

I found a coupla good recordings of "I Am Lord" on Spotify. Here's one on YouTube by Castalia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfysTFidwi8. I prefer the recording on the self-titled album by Moonstruck, but I can't find it on YouTube.
