The Lyrics

Stuff in a beaker, is green and bubbly
I don't know just what is in there
Hope it will make my, enemy weaker
By making his head lose its hair
Others cause sleep and, some will make him restless
One makes him act like a chair
And some are worthless, should have put labels
Sometimes my mind's not aware
Oh no I can't find my sneakers
I could have placed them anywhere
At one point I was a teacher
Then they made me get out since they were scared
I took my lab to this lair

It was a blessing the bums had me kicked out
Far from the structure out there
People there told me, no more explosions
Oh those people are so unfair
For those who have mocked me, what I'm concocting
Will turn them into green pears
If it is perfect. If not oh well
Might as well have made air

And now to whom am I speaking?
Well since I'm insane I should not care
But if you heard all my speaking
I am gonna pour potions on your hair
'Til you turn into a mare

(maniacal cackling and shrieking until the end)

Great idea, great humor, *almost* perfect pacing - I don't have a clue why it got that *3*, but I'm gonna go with 4/5/5 on this one. Not bad at all.

Good humor, Ethan. Just a question- is the maniacal laughing at the end high-pitched or low-pitched? It does make a difference, you know

As Mr. Spock would say, "Fascinating" ...

I like all of the "air" rhymes and the effective combination of humor and terror.

Ethan - DKTOS on this but I voted anyway to make up for that three you got. Judging from other's comments I think I can make an informed decision on voting on a DKTOS tune.

Good job on those voice drags that Coldplay does. You nailed most of them, but some got away from ya. Good opening line, too.

Nobody said it was easy to parody this song. Heh heh. Good job - quite a rush of blood to the head.
