Thanks Roger!

Of course I was humming that all the way home Sunday evening, and a good part of Monday too. And now having seen the lyrics again, probably all day tomorrow too! 8-)

Reminds me of a gig where I was singing "Leezie Lindsey" - where the suitor announces that he is "Lord Ronald MacDonald, a chieftain of high degree." The image Ronald MacDonald the clown with his big shoes and red hair sprang to mind and I started giggling. (I usually substitute something like "I am the young lord MacDonald"   I then led the audience in the parody we used to sing to the MacDonald's jingle:

MacDonald's is your kind of place
Hamburgers in your face
Cheeseburgers up your nose
French fries between your toes
And don't forget those great thick shakes
Come from polluted lakes
MacDonald's is your kind of place"

Yeah, it's pretty dumb !

I still say this is written to the tune of Pachelbel's Canon.

From 1970--

Hear the little whirring of a million little tape recorders
Grabbing new material before it hits the ground--
Hear the gang of secpnd rate performers do this new material
Hear how it becomes a drag the second time around.

    So don't let me hear that you're down-hearted
    That you haven't had a booking in a long long while..
    Grow yourself a bushy beard and learn to squeeze a concertina
    I'll show you something that will make you change your style.

I sang the following parody at the Getaway and I had multiple requests for the words (most folkies know the tune). I promised to post them on the Mudcat. I tried posting this Monday, but the "Submit Message" button did not work.

I learned this from Mike Agranoff, a fine singer, songwriter, story teller and guitarist from New Jersey.

Mc Donald's Kitchen
by Carol MacNelly with additional "folk-process" from Mike Agranoff and Roger Himler

Have you seen the old man behind the fast food counter,
Stacking one more Big Mac box 'long side the other ones?
In his eyes you see no pride, 'cause he knows what they put inside;
Yesterday's burgers on yesterday's buns.

CHO:
How can you tell me your hungry,
And say a meal you'd like to find?
Let me take you by the hand,
I'll lead you through Mc Donald's kitchen.
I'll show you something that'll make you change your mind.


Have you seen the old gal inside the closed down Wendy's,
Scraping all the pieces off the tables and the floor?
In an effort to disguise them,
She takes them back and fries them.
But you still recognize them when they come 'round once more. CHO:

Have you seen the businessman outside the Colonel Sanders,
Appetite slowly fading as he stops and peers inside.
In this winter city,
The rain cries have pity,
On one more forgotten kitty who's now Kentucky Fried. CHO:

Roger in Baltimore
Hope you aren't eating lunch.
