Sing along with the McHit list

Now that McDonald's is paying rappers to riff on Mickey D's, how long before older songs get retooled? Some McHits we expect to hear soon:

To 'The Banana Boat Song (Day-o)'

About these ads

Filet-o, Filet-o
Lunchtime come and I gotta one wish.
Filet-o, filet-o
Lunchtime come and I wanna square fish.

To the Beatles' 'Drive My Car'

Asked a girl what she wanted to eat,
She said, "Baby, can't you see?
I wanna be skinny, a star of the screen,
So I need something fresh and green.
McSalad, baby, in the car!
Dressing by a movie star.
McSalad, baby, in the car,
And, baby, I'm lovin' it."

To 'Guantanamera'

One Quarter Pounder!
I needa one Quarter Pounder.
One Quarter Pounder!
I needa one Quarter Pounder.

To 'Scarborough Fair'

Are you going to finish your fries?
Ketchup, salt, but please hold the thyme.
Remember me as one who would share,
I once gave you two fries of mine.

About these ads

To 'Send In The Clowns'

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it thick?
Me with my straw in my shake,
You take a lick.
Send in the pounds,
We're packing on pounds,
All straight to the rear.

To 'The Birthday Song'

Happy Meal day to you!
Happy Meal day to you!
Happy Meal Day, Dear Customer Who Is Crying Because The Prize Is Already Broken,
Happy Meal day to you.

To 'Sunny Day' (The Sesame Street Song)

Sunny day,
I need a break today,
On my way to finding food, folks, fun!
Can you tell me where to get,
Where to get a Sesame bun?
With some special sauce by the ton?

To 'Puff, The Magic Dragon'

Puff, the Egg McMuffin
Lived by the sea
And frolicked with the breakfast crowd
In a land called Mickey D's!
Little Jackie Paper
Loved that Egg McMuff
And piled him high with ketchup packs
And other fancy stuff.
One sad day it happened:
Jackie Paper came no more.
He'd blimped up to size 52
And couldn't squeeze out his door.
Oh, Puff, the Egg McMuffin
Lived by the sea
And frolicked with the breakfast crowd
In a land called Mickey D's.
