A letter from Barratry

A letter from station Barratry

Parody of: A letter from camp Granada 

by Allan Sherman


Hello Muddah, hello Faddah

Here I am at station Barratry

Station is very entertaining

And they say we’ll have some fun if it stops meteor showering.


I went to hydroponics with the captain 

They developed red cap mushrooms

You remember the dear captain

He got amotixin poisoning last night after dinner


All the chefs hate the botanists

And the maint has rat invaders

And the HOS wants no sissies

So he reads to us from Machiavelli 


Now I don’t want this should scare ya’

But my crewmate is a syndicate

You remember salvage party

They’re about to organize a searching party


Take me home, oh Muddah, Faddah

Take me home, I hate Barratry

Don’t leave me out in space where

I might get eaten by a bear


Take me home, I promise I will

Not make noise, or mess the station with

Other boys, oh please don’t make me stay

I’ve been here one whole hour


Dearest Fadduh, Darling Muddah

How’s my precious little bruddah

Let me come home if you miss me

I would even let Morty hug and kiss me


Wait a minute, it’s stopped exploding

Guys are drinking, guys are eating

Playing ragecage, gee that’s bettah

Muddah, Faddah kindly disregard this letter
