DADGBE Parodies... (32) RE: Parodies... 01 Jul 10


Parodies can also have some interesting dynamics. Often, they get written about subjects which have begun to annoy the parodist. There are endless Christmas carol parodies sung by folks who get bombarded by the yearly onslaught of phony commercial cheer.

"This Land is Your Land' is a great song but here in the US, kids get it in every grade. But I heard one kid singing:

"This land is my land, It isn't your land,
If you don't get off, I'll blow your head off,
I've got a shotgun and you ain't got one,
This land is private property."

That sounds like a more accurate reflection of the real attitudes about property here than Woodie's lovely dream.
