If it falls on me and pins me underneath it, does that still count as seizing the day?

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

This morning after I got out of the shower and toweled off, and was combing my hair, I opened the bathroom door and the lovely scent of frying bacon began to waft in. As I inhaled deeply to catch every subtle nuance (some hickory with just a touch of brown sugar), I realized that today was going to be a good day.

Since I am originally from Oklahoma (the only state whose official song came from Broadway), I am permitted to break into certain songs at opportune moments, one those songs being:

Oh, what a beautiful moooooorning!
Oh, what a beautiful daaaaaaaay!
I’ve got a wonderful feeeeeeeling,
Some bacon is coming my waaaaaaay!

These constant references to bacon are going to affect my eating habits, thus raise my cholesterol, and ultimately lead to my premature death. Oh, it might be a beautiful morning for you, but it is just one more nail in the coffin for me.

Every morning you awaken is one day closer to dying anyway. Blame time, not bacon.

There's a bright greasy haze on the skillet
There's a bright greasy haze on the skillet
My cholesterol's as high as a big fat guy's
And it looks like it's climbing clear up til I die

Oh, what a beautiful morning
Oh, what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feeling
Some bacon is coming my way!

All the bacon is frying like mad now
All the bacon is frying like mad now
And as I turn my head to look out at the sky
Some bacon grease splatters and lands in my eye

Oh, what a beautiful morning
Oh, what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feeling
Some bacon is coming my way!

All the sounds of breakfast are like music
All the sounds of breakfast are like music
The bacon's all done now and it's all for me
Some much for my diet being cholesterol free

Oh, what a beautiful morning
Oh, what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feeling
Some bacon is coming my way!

Hey, I'll blame who and what I freaking want to. Maybe tomorrow I'll blame my sofa. See, it is too comfortable. If it were less comfortable, perhaps I'd get up off my butt and get some exercise.

Yeah, that's it. Sofas and bacon are responsible for all that is bad.

Oh, and maybe pocket lint. But I haven't figured that one out yet.

Pure dead brilliant! I didn't even think to go farther with the song and you wrote an entire one! That is hilarious! Thanks for taking the ball and running with it.

What's funny is, even though I lived in Oklahoma for forty-mumble years, I never saw the musical -- stage or screen version -- until I moved to Louisiana and saw the Hugh Jackman version on PBS. And that one was staged in Australia!

If you can find the original movie with Gordon MacRae and Gloria Grahame, check it out. They did an excellent job with that one!

Agreed. One of my best friends actually got that role once, and he did an excellent job with it. I'm always keeping my eyes open for productions of Oklahoma that are looking for actors. I wouldn't need to memorize the songs, that's for sure!

Well, either you're closing your eyes
To a situation you do now wish to acknowledge
Or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated
By the presence of bacon in your community.

Ya got trouble, my friend, right here,
I say, trouble right here in River City.

Why sure I'm a pork eater,
Certainly mighty proud I say
I'm always mighty proud to say it.

I consider that the hours I spend
With a fork in my hand are golden.
Help you cultivate horse sense
And a cool head and a keen eye.

Ever take and try to give
yourself a satisfied tummy,
From a egg and sausage value meal?

But just as I say,
It takes judgement, brains, and maturity to
eat at the local Dennys,
I say that any fool can take
And shove some bacon down his gullet.

And they call that sloth.
The first big step on the road
To the depths of deg-ra-day--
I say, first, medicinal wine from a teaspoon,
Then beer from a bottle!

An' the next thing ya know,
Your son is playin' for money
In a pinch-back suit.

And list'nin to some big out-a-town Jasper
Hearin' him tell about horse-race gamblin'.

Not a wholesome trottin' race, no!
But a race where they set down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey'boy
Sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil?
Well, I should say.

Now friends, lemme tell you what I mean.
Ya got one, two, three, four, five, six slices on the table.
Slices that mark the diff'rence
Between a gentlemen and a geek,
With a capital "G,"
And that rhymes with "B" and that stands for BACON!

(not the quality of the earlier tribute, but I've been in "The Music Man" -- as Harold Hill and other roles -- so many times that I can never get the words out of my head)

When I was a kid we had the Broadway cast recording (Robert Preston and Barbara Cook, IIRC) and I listened to that record many, many times. This has always been one of my favorite "patter" bits, along with the "He doesn't know the territory!" one. You did a great job parodying it in such a short time.
