I am now officially addicted to Downton Abbey and proud of it! I love the story, the costumes, the setting, and especially the characters - from the Crawleys to the servants, they're all more colorful than a bag of Skittles. I was listening to the Disney version of "Mambo #5" the other day and I just started putting the Downton characters' names into the chorus. The result? A wild, wacky burst of insanity that is the Mambo #5, Downton Abbey style! Sing along if you want - although the Dowager Countess wouldn't approve!
One, two, three, four, five
Everybody on the train so come on, let's ride
To Downton Abbey 'round the corner
The Crawleys want to fox hunt
But I really don't wanna
Let's dance 'til the sun goes down
There's not a dull moment here in Downton town
I like Mary, Matthew, Cora, and Izzy
And Edith is driving the tractor like crazy!
There's Robert Crawley, he's Grantham's earl and lord
For Violet, snarking is just like a sport
All things new, Sybil's all game for them
And Matthew's blue eyes, Mary just adores them!
A little bit of Robert in my life
A little bit of Cora by his side
A little bit of Matthew's all I need
A little bit of Violet's what I see
A little bit of Isobel in the sun
Mary, Edith, Sybil, can't go wrong
A little bit of Rosamund, everyone!
A little bit of Downton life is fun!
It's upstairs, down, and moving all around
When the gong rings a sound
Servants' feet hit the ground
There's Carson on the left, Mrs. Hughes on the right
Mr. Bates to the front and Anna by his side
Thomas claps once and William claps twice
And Mrs. Patmore's cooking is oh so nice!
A little bit of John Bates in my life
A little bit of Anna by his side
A little bit of William's all I need
A little bit of Daisy's what I see
A little bit of Thomas in the sun
Mrs. Hughes, O'Brien, can't go wrong
A little bit of Carson, everyone!
A little bit of him makes life so fun!
Upstairs, down, and fall in love with the Crawley clan
'Cause we can't run and we can't hide
Downton Abbey has hit the sky!
Did you sing along? Admit it, you did! I hope y'all had as much fun singing along with this as I did writing it! If you have reviews, shoot 'em my way!
