24 Days of Pezamania

Day 21 | Day 22 | Day 23

Day 22 features my longest Pez song parody to date, "Pezamania High", which is a Pezzified verison of the classic song "American Pie" and is also a pretty comprehensive overview of the Pezamania experience. Those who have not attended Pezamania or other Pez conventions may not recongnize some of the names in this song, but once you start coming to conventions, you will soon get to know them quite well.


Pezamania High

To the tune of "American Pie" by Don McLean
Copyright 2006 JoePez Publications

A long, long time ago
I can still remember
When I started to collect this stuff.
A Snoopy Pez, how small it seemed,
But how it crept inside my dreams,
And I knew I could never get enough

But Pez collectin' had no glory,
With no one else to share my story
The local stores I raided,
For new Pez, how I waited

I think that it was 4:05
When I had first felt so alive
And I knew that I arrived
The day I made that drive

And my, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.

Did you bring your spendin' cash,
And a box to hold the brand new stash
That will soon belong to you?
And are you prepared to soon perceive
More vintage Pez than you'd believe,
And maybe some others that are brand new?

Well I know it's just a couple days,
But it puts me into such a craze
When I get to that hotel,
I know I'm feelin' well

I'll be on the hunt for those heads and stems,
And I hope there's cash in the ATM,
Cause finding Pez was my intent
The day I made that drive.

I started singin'
My, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.

Now it's six times I've been comin' here
And it gets better ev'ry year
And that my friends, it's safe to say
I registered with the jolly hosts,
They gave me stuff in a funky tote
And a badge to send me on my way

Oh and to the rooms I quickly moved,
I had a list, it was time to groove
So I went from floor to floor,
Lookin' for open doors,

And I saw that John was setting up,
And met with Red to see whassup,
And I looked forward to Sheryl's pup
The day I made that drive

I was singin'
My, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.

In ten minutes oh I was in it,
Ninety bucks for an awesome vintage
Three rooms in and feelin' grand
My Laspina guide tight in my hand,
I soldiered on to my next command,
Where I did spend much more than I had planned

My list was set, I did assume
But then I came to Sylvia's room.
And when I found Gotdank,
Oh man, that broke the bank!

But I gotta say that it was foreseen
That I'd sell my blood to pay for gasoline
And I think you know just what I mean
If you have made that drive

We were singin'
My, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.

Oh, and there were Pezheads everywhere,
For some it was the first year there,
And others who I knew from years before
So come on, what's your name and where ya from,
How many Pez do you have at home
And are you going back there with any more?

And the experts there were quite a trip
Some history and some eBay tips,
Some damaged Pez repaired,
So much knowledge shared,

And the Pezheads movie was mighty fine,
And the Bingo prizes, I was denied,
And the Cincy party was on my mind
The day I made that drive

We were singin'
My, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.

Now Saturday soon came around,
With all the fun times winding down,
One more time on that convention floor
I looked upon the dealer's tables,
And though near broke, I was still able
To somehow have enough to shop for more

A couple more Pez were bestowed,
With one more vintage for the road.
So many hands were shaken,
Some photographs were taken

And with my wallet fully cleared
I thanked the hosts and disappeared
I know I'll see it all next year
When I will make that drive.

I'll be singin'
My, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.

I'll be singin'
My, my Pezamania high
Started Thursday and I'd sure say
That I'm real satisfied
And them vintage Pez you know I'm gonna buy,
Sayin' kiss a hundred dollars goodbye,
Kiss another hundred goodbye.
