Episode XX: Pudding Legs
Welcome, folks! I’m changing things up a bit today. Instead of having a Words of Wisdom segment, I have written a lil’ parody called “Pudding Legs” to the tune of “Part of Your World” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. I was inspired to do this by my own uncooperative legs who just haven’t wanted to hold me up lately. So instead of getting angry at them, I decided to try laughter instead!
This Parody is for everyone dealing with a chronic illness who has ever felt like they have shaky, unreliable “Pudding Legs” holding them up. Share, enjoy, and feel free to use this to serenade your own pudding legs when they’re getting the better of you. It won’t make them stronger, but it may make you smile. Enjoy!
(To the tune of “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid)
Lyrics Written and Performed by The Female Yoda, February 20th, 2014
Look at these legs
Aren’t they sweet?
Compare them to custard, and I have them beat
Pudding legs under my weight
Aren’t they- so sedate?
Wobbly and soft just like a rose
You should be glad you don’t stand up on those
Pudding legs wobbling my way
Feeling like styrofoam
I’ve got tendons and skin cells a-plenty
I’ve got ligaments down to the floor
Oh, those fingers and toes? I’ve got twenty.
But who cares? No big deal. I want more!
I wanna stand like the cupcakes stand
Strong and delicious and dense like mortar
Hangin’ around on those- what’s that word again?
Oh. Cookie Sheets.
These pudding legs, they don’t get too far
Flour is required for rising, growing
Raising up tall on your own so you don’t fall
Up where they rise
Up where they grow
Why are these puddings legs so hard to stow
Right under me
Wish I could be
More like that dough
What would I give if I could live out of these wobblers
What would I take to spend a day: cake on a stand
Betchya on toast
Or on a roast
You really get to sink your teeth in
Soft but solid
Now I’m clotted
Down to my toes!
And I wanna go where the donuts go
Happy and cheerful with too much sugar
I’d even take being round to be strong below
Oh, pudding legs
Made up with eggs
Runny and weightless and feel more like pegs
One day I’ll be
More like a tree
I dedicate this song to all of you out there who have ever had, or have at this time, Pudding Legs. If you know someone with a chronic illness who would understand this parody and could use a smile, please share this post. We Pudding Legs need to stick together.
Pudding A Smile On Your Face,
(I just heard half of you groan… yeah, I admit it, that was a pretty bad pun..)
