Rambling On

Anthony R. Cardno's Fiction and Commentary

I tweeted earlier today “So which is it? #frankenstorm or #snoreastercane? Or maybe “frankenstormsnoreastercaneapocalpytigeddon?” And then my friend and coworker Regan pointed out how well that fit with “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” and a parody was born. Note: I will not be recording this — but if someone else wants to, just give us proper credit!

 

Frankenstormsnoreastercaneapocalyptigeddon.

Could this be the perfect storm that everyone is fretting

Or will it be a big ol’ bust that we’ll all be regretting?

Frankenstormsnoreastercaneapocalyptigeddon

 

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

 

Because we were afraid of storms
Disasters by the score,
Forecasters gave our fears a form
and kept us feeling sore
And then one day we heard a word
to sum up all our woes,
The biggest word you ever heard
and this is how it goes… Oh!

Could this be the perfect storm that everyone is fretting

Or will it be a big ol’ bust that we’ll all be regretting?

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle aye

 

 

I travel all around the world
And everywhere I go
I dress for weather of all types
For earthquake and tornado.
When forecasters try to pass
the time of day with me
I say my special word and then
they ask me out to tea. Oh!

(Spoken): Of course you can say it backwards, which is

“gedd-apocalypti-cane-snoreaster-storm-nekfran”

But that’s going a bit far, don’t you think?

 

So when the forecast has got you down
There’s no need to dismay
Just summon up this word and
Laugh at every word they say.
Let’s just hope they’ve got it wrong

And Sandy will blow past
Cause when they get it right on us
We’ve never moved so fast. Oh!
