The Lyrics

You come up with excuses why you’re late
“My car wouldn’t start! My kid has the flu!”
We roll our eyes the same lies everyday
Go get a clock and set it, dude!

Caught a film by that guy Michael Bay
Your timer’s absurd half the flick was missed
I guess it doesn’t matter anyway
Since there’s no plot just explosions

Never on time! Never on time! Never on time!
Clock ticks, we’re pissed, Rush!
Never on time! Never on time! Never on time!
Clock ticks, we’re pissed, Rush!

You don’t run and you always waste our time!
Picking out coats… Which will get me laid?
We say to race, Don’t check Facebook online!
That’s why we’re late to watch The Fray!

Never on time! Never on time! Never on time!
Clock ticks, we’re pissed, Rush!
Never on time! Never on time! Never on time!
Clock ticks, we’re pissed, Rush!
Never on time! Never on time! Never on time!
Clock ticks, we’re pissed, Rush!

Your boss is sick of hearing all your cries
It’s quicker for a stump to decompose
You’re like a sloth and thus it’s no surprise
You get to work right when we close!

"It’s quicker for a stump to decompose" ... now THAT's a funny line!

I'm giving you a 445, just for the funny title sub. A little bit too much going on to fit the structure of the song, just IMHO. Enya was VERY hard to make funny...probably because there's ZERO humor in her entire artistic approach.

(Artistry) Apart from the random jab at Michael Bay, this was brilliant. A hell of a lot better than my parody of the same topic. 555!

(Artistry) At least you got the parody submitted on time... universal concept, good work.

I have to mention the second verse was random, and in a way that really doesn't match with the song's central theme. The OS didn't give you much to work with. The first and final verses worked for me, I enjoyed this one Matty, unfortunately I feel you may not have had as much time as you needed to blow this one out the water.

Killer last verse, out of place second verse. Def not much to work with here but pretty good Matt. 555.
