As I will be a father soon, I’ve been keeping an eye and ear out for children’s shows. One of the most popular on Australian television seems to be Pingu, a stop-motion claymation TV series about a penguin and his friends. So here’s a send-up song about Pingu, to the tune of “Bingo”.


Lyrics of a popular song updated with modern day sensibility:

There was a penguin on TV

And Pingu was it’s name-oo




And “Pingu” was it’s name-oo


Pingu hailed from Antartica

And lived and worked in igloos




He lived and worked in igloos


Kids from all around the world

Have Pingu to look up to




And that’s the tale of Pingu!

If it weren’t for that damned John McClane

In tribute of one of the best movies ever set on Christmas Eve (and one of the best movies of all time):


If it weren’t for that damned John McClane (to the tune of “Let it snow”)

Oh the Gruber clan is so greedy

And their eyes are shifty and beady

And they’d be sipping champagne

If it weren’t for that damned John McClane!


Hans tries to rob Nakatomi

With his German team of cronies

But his plans are all in vain

All because of that damned John McClane!


When Hans finally meets McClane

He doesn’t really have much to say

Stopping Hans’ terrorist campaign

John yells out: “Yippee-Ki-Yay!”


Simon Gruber wants revenge

His bro’s death he wants to avenge

But the Grubers’ poor record’s maintained

Both were killed by that damned John McClane!

Lyrics of a Christmas song updated with modern day sensibility…about a cartoon character:


Tinkerbell (to the tune of “Jingle Bells”)

Tinkerbell, Tinkerbell, who comes from Neverland

You’re a tinker fairy who’s in love with Peter Pan

Tinkerbell, Tinkerbell, you’re fighting Captain Hook

You’re just a fictional character in J.M. Barrie’s book


One night in London town, Peter asked you to come by

Teaching Wendy, John and Michael Darling how to fly

Ill-tempered you may be, but we know why you’re a snob

It’s a tragedy sharing a name with Paris Hilton’s dog!


Tinkerbell, Tinkerbell, born of a baby’s laugh

What’s a girl supposed to do when her love is rebuffed?

Tinkerbell, Tinkerbell, of Disney movie lore

Sprinkling fairy dust is only what you’re famous for

Lt. Col. Kilgore: “Smell that? You smell that?”

Lance: “What?”

Lt. Col. Kilgore: “Victory, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that.”

Lt. Col. Kilgore kneels.
