The Lyrics

I really don't like mowing the lawn.But I don't lke even more the neighbors critisizing my gardenI eventually got over it and wrote this parody based on my breakthrough.Though I might still not give a crud if crabgrass comes in! ;}
Go ahead as you waste time cutting hedges
You'll end up smelling like my @$$
Another day as you're trimming all the bushes
Hope you'll remember about the

Grass that's broadening
Tyson Ritter can't sing

Or take in

When you don't want to keep it long
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn like I know you'll do
And even when the trimmers on
Mow the lawn mow the lawn, cause I told you to
Mow the lawn
Mow the lawn

So a day when you neglect to have chores done
You won't sit there and let time pass
Cause lets just say while although you are having fun
You will remember about the

Grass that's broadening
The front man cannot sing

Or take in

When you don't want to keep it long
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn like I know you'll do
And even when the trimmers' on
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn, cause I told you to
Mow the lawn

Go on, go on go no go on
While you're watching James Bond, please mow the lawn
Go on, go on go no go on
Even if your name's Shawn
Please mow the lawn

When you don't want to keep it long
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn like I know you'll do
And even when the trimmers' on
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn, cause I told you to

When you don't want to keep it long
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn like I know you'll do
And even when the trimmers' on
Mow the lawn; mow the lawn, cause I told you to
Mow the lawn

Go on, go on go no go on
Even near Genghis Khan, please mow the lawn
Go on, go on go no go on
I don't care if you're done
Just mow the lawn
Dude's voice sounds like a seagull choking on potatoe chips!

Well Joal, I think that this parody is very funny, the pacing is pretty good and it makes fun of the original pretty nicely, I could just picture a music video for this song where the singer falls backword into a pile of grass or yard clippings [Instead of an empty pool]

Very nice. Our band (2013...you might have guessed the name) really wanted to do this song but I see you already made it...and very well too. I think this song could be actually released on a CD...a music video would be nice as well. Overall, great song.

My lyrics... Go ahead as you waste your days being lazy When the grass grows too tall Another day and you’ll get mail from the mayor With a letter saying “Grass has grown too tall, You better mow the lawn.” Can’t you see, that when the grass has grown too tall, Mow the lawn, mow the lawn like I need you to. And even when your mower’s gone Mow the lawn, mow the lawn just to make it through Mow the lawn Mow the lawn So a day when you've lost another mower Could be a night when your life ends Such a type that will cut down every corner All the yard falls in your hands You can get John Deere But please don’t get a lawn-boy. Can’t you see, that when the grass has grown too tall, Mow the lawn, mow the lawn like I need you to. And even when your mower’s gone Mow the lawn, mow the lawn just to make it through Mow the lawn (Go on, go on, go on, go on) Cut that what is long, we mow the lawn (Go on, go on, go on, go on) Everything is long, we mow the lawn The lawn, the lawn, the lawn. When the grass has grown too tall, Mow the lawn, mow the lawn like I need you to. And even when your mower’s gone Mow the lawn, mow the lawn just to make it through [x3] Mow the lawn (Go on, go on, go on, go on) Cut that what is long, we mow the lawn

For crying out loud, I don't care who it is! Can[t you just stop commenting immature and personal stuff about yourself?! Geez! And that wasn't me either putting up that first Joel comment or ANY of the David ones. Don't tell me you didn't know I never commented here until now.

Alright alright. the only reason i posted my song here was because something went wrong with AmIright.com and wouldent let me post it though i have long sence posted it.
Joel Martinez - November 27, 2007 - Report this comment
Oh no, that's okay. I'm sorry if you dont believe me, but I actually didn't ever comment here (until now and yesterday that is) I bet it was that Iced Print who did the same dang thing to my AFI parody. He's immature.
Crazy Dave (Same David) - December 14, 2007 - Report this comment
I saw that. aside the fact, now we have three move along parodys called mow the lawn, i think we should hold a contest to see who's best. i see yours have the post comments and votes though.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
