Concerning Movies (2011)

This post is brought to you by Material Movie, Riaad Moosa’s new flick releasing nationwide on the 17 Feb. Riaad has been encouraging me to write more, and also break into the comedy scene. Riaad, Zain Bhikha and Hashim Amla are my three role models. I will do a post on Material Movie this week.

I have decided to use the same format as my last four year end awards (and apart from a few revisions, the text is almost identical to last years - MJ is lazy!) Don’t forget to check out Waseems list. I would have linked it but his blog is blocked on my work server.

As with all my posts/notes - its subjective. So if you disagree - by all means correct me.

Its Too Late for Dholl and Rice

This is a Parody of OneRepublic's and Timbalands 'Too Late to Apologize'. This is the second Timbaland song that I've parodied. the first being

Like all my parodies, it helps if you have the song playing in the background

I'm scrubbing with the soap
Picking shampoo off the ground
And I'm hearing what you say
Though the shower drowns the sound
You tell me that I’m lazy
That I’m missing my salaah
But wait...
You tell me that its half one
Didn't think I'd turn around and say..

That it's too late for dholl* and rice, it's too late
I said it's too late for dholl and rice, it's too late

I'd take another route, take a bus, catch the second jamaat
And I need it because its free
(But that's just me showing my jaat)
Yeah yeah

I love it with the paapar, and the carrot pickle too
And I say
Spread it on a trestle, paper plates and jugs of juice
But I'm afraid

It's too late for dholl and rice, it's too late
I said it's too late for dholl and rice, it's too late
Woahooo woah

Let me know what you think


*Dholl can be replaced with Dhall depending on your geocultural leanings
