American Fry (Parody of Don McLean’s “ American Pie)

A long long time ago
I can still remember how that show used to make me smile
And I knew if I gave it a chance
That I’d be happy and do a little dance
And maybe it’d be on for a long while.

But August 10, made me shiver
Saying goodbye to Fry, Leela and Bender
But we still had a blast
Bender traded away his metal ass.

I can’t remember if I cried
When I learned about the end of this space ride
But something touched me deep in side
The day the show died.

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Did you know this pizza delivery boy
Is now a comic and an action toy
Maybe it is just as so
Can you believe in FOX’s role
May god damn their mortal souls
And I hope he takes it real slow.

Well, I knew the show would be big hit
But FOX still treated like it was shit
Of course we know we were screwed
What’s a bunch of die-hard fans to do?

All we can say is that FOX, you suck
Caring only about the mighty buck
And we all knew we were out of luck
The day the show day.

We started singing’

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Now for five years we’ve been having fun
Watching the PE crew getting the job done
Making a whole bunch of deliveries.
Well I also like the Professor and Scruffy
Hermes and that sexy Asian, Amy
Dr. Zoidberg seemed real funny to me

Oh and while FOX was looking down
The PE crew just made them frown
Their decision was adjourned
With no chance of a return
And Matt and David fought for the show
But FOX merely gave them a big “no”
And we all just said FOX, you blow
The day the show died

We were singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Now we fans sent in a bunch of letters
Saying keeping the show was for the better
FOX merely threw them in the trash.
72 episodes and dying fast
The show on FOX just couldn’t last
The PE crew was in for a big crash.

Now we remember Fry and Leela’s first kiss
It was a moment that we all didn’t miss
Now Leela can never be sad
Because she also found her mom and dad
And her pet Nibbler is not what he seems
Fry in the future was part of his scheme
Leela, “the other” we can only dream
The day the show died.

We started singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

Oh once a week we’d love coming to this place
This generation’s Lost In Space
But some say it’s more like Star Trek
Star Wars stuff was also used
To keep us fans still amused
But FOX won’t now bring it back.
Oh and Fry started blowing that holophone
I can sense Leela’s loving tone
It was the scene we’ve waited for
Leela and Fry together and maybe score
But the fact it was last episode that night
Just made us think it wasn’t right
But FOX just laughed with delight
The day the show died

We were singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
This’ll be the day that we die.

I knew August 10 was the end
And it felt I was losing a friend
But they’ll live on in my memories
I learned that the show wasn’t done
Cartoon Network now has it in rerun.
But it doesn’t just feel same to me

And in the end the fans just cheered
But to FOX we all just jeered.
No other word was spoken
Because all our hearts were broken
And the three people I admired a lot
Fry, Leela and the lovable robot
Are all gone, but won’t be forgot
The day the show died

And we were singing

So bye-bye, Mr. Philip J. Fry
With a girlfriend named Leela
Who’s got only one eye
And that good ole Bender’s still drinking whiskey and rye
Saying this’ll be the day that we die
