Tray Dipper

a parody of the Beatles song “Day Tripper”

(song title and 2nd verse parody lyrics copyright © by Chris Watson, 1st and 3rd verses added in .)
A spoonerism is a type of word play where the first sounds of two adjoining words are transposed. Somehow, Day Tripper became Tray Dipper in my mind, and this parody followed. Thanks to the late Steve Shair for the “buffet ticket” line.

“Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” — Gilbert K. Chesterton

Got a good reason
for taking the cheesy tray out.

Got a good reason
for taking the cheesy tray out now.

She was a tray dipper,
buffet ticket yeah.

It took her so long to pig out,
and she pigged out.

She likes the cheese, yeah.
She could eat half the tray there.

She likes the cheese, yeah.
She could eat half the tray there, now.

She was a tray dipper,
buffet ticket, yeah.

It took her so long to pig out,
and she pigged out.

Tried to please her,
she took the tray right from my hands.

Tried to please her,
she took the tray right from my hands.

She was a tray dipper,
ice cream sundaes too.

It took her so long to pig out,
but she pigged out.

Tray Dipper. Tray Dipper, yeah.
Tray Dipper. Tray Dipper, yeah.
