The Lyrics

Ode to my dear old Grandmother, who caused my whole family not much but constant, maddening frustration with her mind games and guilt trips during the time my mother, brother and I were living with her. After a member of the family had a panic attack, we left her house and moved into an apartment we had been planning on moving into for a while. She acts like she's all nice and sweet and stuff, but she's really a hateful old lady who holds grudges and is basically a travel agent when it comes to guilt trips (Get it? Trip? :P), and can never admit to doing any wrong, and will never properly apologize for anything. And yes, she has tricked all of our extended family into believing all kinds of fabrications. Anyway, Enjoy the tale of our epic journey out of that awful place! ^^ (BTW: South Campbell is the name of the street we lived on at the time.)

On a cold winter mornin',
In a time before the move,
In'the shadow of Gram's eternal guilt, her wickedness she proves!

Tries to act like she's good and kind, but she's wrong, and that she knows,
Whole fam'ly's bound by webs of lies that mostly she has told,

When the guilt trips are flyin' fast, and ya know that it's not ri-ight,
'Sound of her evil laughter haunts me in my dreams tonight!

With the blackest soul, on South Campbell, she hates when we rejoice!
She'll bring us down with the sound of her voooooice!

...So we escaped from that hole! When the madness took it's evil toll,
One of us almost snapped, so we took no more crap!
Got an apartment,
Fled from the darkness,
Never to return to it agaaaain!
And though the new place is down in the sluuuu-uuuuums, That's where our deliverance from her coooomes,

And if we ever must return to-oo her again, she'll see,

That the guilt trip plane will not take off with me...

Though she tries to oppose us, and barge in whene'er she can,
In our new life, we flee from strife, that's dealt from her wretched hand....
She pretends she has changed and she's nice, in attempts to win us back,
But every word, she says is by, some evil intent backed,

With the blackest soul, on South Campbell, she goes out of her way,
To secretly harass us every daaaay!

...But we've escaped from her hole! Her advances all have proven null,
Now she has almost snapped, no more good energy to sap!
Down with the darkness,
We're in our apartment,
Life's still hard, but it's better than befoooore!
And though the place may be down in the sluuuu-uuuuums, That's where our deliverance from her coooomes,

And if we ever must return to-oo her again, she'll see,

That the guilt trip plane will not take off with me...



(Guitar solo)

Now all alone in the darkness she waits...
And in that darkness she does contemplate...
And in the mess she has made, she's no choice but to wade,
No pride for her claws to deflate,

...'Cause our apartment that's down in the sluuuu-uuuuums, That's where to, from her house we have coooooome,

If we're for some awful reason, with her again, she'll see,

That the guilt trip plane will not take off with me...
Woot! ^^ Go us! Comments are appreciated. And yes, since we moved, she's been quite upset that she doesn't have anyone to bully around anymore, and she's been trying to bully us around all the way from her house. If you want to see more of my stuff go to my DeviantArt page! See ya there! ^^

Good parody. I felt the pacing was a bit off, but it was really funny. It's a good thing my grandma isn't like that! Keep it up, man.
