Drive thru Golden Arches for McHits

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | 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)"

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 "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.

To "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"


Even though the smell of them will give you halitosis

If you eat 'em long enough, you know your diagnosis:


To "Guantanamera"

One Quarter Pounder!

I needa one Quarter Pounder

One Quarter Pounder

I needa one Quarter Pounder.

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 "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 "The Birthday Song"

Happy Meal day to you!

Happy Meal day to you!

Happy Meal day, Dear Customer Who Is Crying Under the Plastic Chair Because The Prize Is Already Broken

Happy Meal day to you.

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.
