Oh Fairy God Agent, Where ARE You?

"The Perfect Agent"Sung to ‘the Perfect Nanny’ from Marry Poppins



Creepy Query Girl
[Spoken]
Wanted: an agent for one adorable writer


[Sung]
If you want this choice position
Have a cheesy disposition (it’ll help you enjoy this song…)
Rosy cheeks, no warts. (or as few as possible)
Read blogs, all sorts


You must be smart and somewhat gritty,
fairly sweet and very witty
Send my ms on outings, give it 'tweets',
sing songs, eat sweets


Never be cross or cruel
Never give my ms castor oil or gruel (who does that?)
Love it as son and daughter
And never stink of barley water (what the hell is barley water?)


If you won't scold and dominate us,
we will never give you cause to hate us.
We won't copy plots from best selling blue rays
write clichés, or explicit sex in YA,


Oh- Hurry, Agent!
This means the world,


Sincerely,


Creepy. Query. Girl.


Oh yes. She totally did sing it too...

I think barley water is indicative of beer...or something like that. :)

bclement412 said...

hahhahha I LOVE this its perfect!!!1!!

Creepy Query Girl said...

Thanks for listening guys! I'm sorry it's so SLOW! I haven't played guitar in years and had to wait for my hands to catch up!lol

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Aww! This is such a cute idea! I love your song, but now it's going to be stuck in my head all day. And I'm sure your agent would be relieved that you don't write explicit sex in YA. :P

Amparo Ortiz said...

This is AMAZING!!! Thank you for making my week!

KarenG said...

You have a really good voice!! Very Mary Poppin-ish! So cute!

E. Elle said...

Wonderful! *Applause* I'm at work so I can't listen to you sing it but I totally loved the lyrics. Great job! :o)

Theresa Milstein said...

Good timing. Last week when I subbed, the class watched "Mary Poppins", so I can hear the tune.

No cliches - gotta watch out for those. Like a hawk.

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

That was great! I'm going to be singing that all day now.lol.
Barley water (since you asked) is a soft drink made from, well, I think it's mainly barley and water. It's a bit lemony in the versions i've had that you dilute.
A lelderly people drink it, although I am going on my grandparents here:)

Talli Roland said...

Hahaha! That's hilarious - I love it! LOL!

stu said...

To reinforce the comments above on barley water (or as I almost typed it, barely water), it is non-alchoholic, not particularly tasty, and generaly indicative of the 1950s in Britain. Should you feel an overwhelming urge to try some, I believe Robinsons make a version.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Too funny!
Don't forget to look for Fairy God Publisher, either.

Mary McDonald said...

That's awesome! And, hey, a second career in music can't be far behind.

DL Hammons said...

Perfect! Inspired! So Creative!

Kudo's a plenty!!

LTM said...

fun stuff--and fun blog! I too feel like I've gone a little query-crazy since Jan. 2010. Good luck w/your search~

February Grace said...

...and she can sing!!!

I was just pasting the URL of this blog into my blogroll- clicked to see what was new and boy did you just earn that link in spades...

I am tweeting this immediately!

Old Kitty said...

The blogs are alive with the sound of music!!!

With songs they have sung for a thousand years..

The blogs fill my heart with the sound of muzaak

My MS wants to stalk every agent it finds...!!

February Grace said...

and here my husband's guess that barley water was a reference somehow to beer...wow, you learn something new every day!

Lisa Gail Green said...

OMG you're brilliant. Someone sign her!

Babydoll said...

THAT was TOO perfect! LOL I loved it! You're a lovely singer too, btw.

Alesa Warcan said...

Heheheh... That was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Have you tried writing and ripping up a letter with this song on it, and sticking the pieces in your chimney's updraft? ; j

Melissa said...

You are brilliant. All kinds of Brilliant. I was laughing so hard when I was reading it....and then you sang it. AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!

I want to sing your praises like crazy girl! (except no one would want me to because my voice is horrific....)

Nicole MacDonald said...

Ooooo I can't see the vid while at work, I'm soo checking it out when I get home *grin* good on you!

Vicki Rocho said...

Late to the party today, but that was brilliant! *applause*

lbdiamond said...

NICE!!!

Carole said...

Clever, very clever.

Susan Fields said...

I love this! And what is barley water anyway? Yuck! I'm so impressed with your singing and songwriting skills - surely the fairy agents will take notice!

Jen said...

C.Q.G you seriously out did yourself! Sorry it's taken me so long to get here, you're normally the first one I visit each morning, but the video doesn't play at work so I had to wait until my day off!

Great lyrics, haha... and awesome singing, damn girl you have a great voice! I loved it... ENCORE, ENCORE

Tamara Narayan said...

Brilliant and brave. I wish I could play the guitar. At this point, I might be tempted to take an evil stepmother agent, but fairy god agent sounds better.

Disgruntled Bear said...

Great song, CQG!

MBW aka Olleymae said...

Pretty voice!! and hilarious/awesome/genius song!!!!!!!

LOL! I love this. 'If you want this choice position, have a cheesy disposition.." That is going to be in head all day now! Ah Julie Andrews you rock! Great post. ;)

Suzanne Casamento said...

You are HILARIOUS. If I were an agent I'd represent you just for that!

Vatche said...

Hey, Creepy Query Girl, just letting you know that you won an award over at my blog, so check that out! :D

Erin Kane Spock said...

This was awesome.

I always thought "barley water" was a reference to beer. I could be wrong. I've never looked it up, and I'm not going to.
Okay, I probably will, but not tonight because I've already spent too much time thinking about it.

Ellie said...

I love this, I think you have another creative side...You can sing!!! You clever gal~xXx

MT said...

I am entirely impressed.

Now I'm wondering how long it took.

You've got a great sense of humor. ;)

Creepy Query Girl said...

A huge thanks to everyone who commented on this!! You guys are awesome!

Slushpile Slut said...

You never cease to amaze CQG!! Could you be anymore creative? Thanks for the laugh and Damn girl! You can really sing!
