Sangria (song Parody)


Fruity wine with a hint of alcohol
Sangria Sangria Sangria Sangria
A tutti fruity wine with hardly 
any kick at all
Sangria Sangria Sangria Sangria
I’ve just had a glass of Sangria
And I don’t feel a thing
It doesn’t have the zing 
I need
I’ve just added gin to Sangria
And suddenly I’m high
I feel like I can fly 
With speed!
Gulp it down and you will be stinking!
Sip it once and you’ll find yourself thinking
I’ll never stop drinking Sangria 

Fruity wine with a hint of alcohol

Parody of "Maria" from "West Side Story"

Maria . . . 
The most beautiful sound I ever heard: 
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . . 
All the beautiful sounds of the world 
in a single word . . 
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . . 
I've just met a girl named Maria, 
And suddenly that name 
Will never be the same 
To me. 
I've just kissed a girl named Maria, 
And suddenly I've found 
How wonderful a sound 
Can be! 
Say it loud and there's music playing, 
Say it soft and it's almost like praying. 
I'll never stop saying Maria! 

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.

    LOL! I knew exactly which song you had used for your parody even before I read your information at the bottom of the page. This is so funny, Corinne. It almost made me want to start drinking...Sangria and Gin. But then, again, I haven't had alcoholic drinks since those long ago younger days. Love the Song, though! Smiles, Dane Ann

    Oh, this is a delight, Corrine! Your great poem moves beautifully with the music and has a witty "taste" to it. I had a difficult time with my Sondheim song; had never heard it before and it seemed to have no real melody. You did a terrific job! This one should rank high in the contest. Love, Carolyn
