The Lyrics

I know the title doesn't seem to fit, just bare with me.
I did tell you before that we'll catch the bus
We can't afford to be late
But you insist on squeezing some more pus
Don't make me start screaming

(Get off your fat arse!)

You keep rejecting my offers for help
Don't think I'll be nice this time (like the last time)
Since time equals money, and you sure take time
Just when I thought you'd found your wallet
You lost something else

You take forever (near forever)
Get on with it! (get on with it)
It's not like it's summer (not bloody summer)
You're not soaked in sweat
No excuse for you!

Bored stiff from waiting for you on the bog
(I could swear you're in there, iPod glued in your head
Blasting 'Numb', playing Mario on your DS)
You excused yourself an hour ago
Hurry up, cause your soup's getting cold!
Don't try it again!

Don't take forever (don't think 'bout it)
We must leave now! (get off your arse)
I'll kill you if you say (kill you if you say)
"Hey, don't have a cow!"

Don't you dare complain
Complain to me, I'm not listening (Na-na-na-na!)
You won't get let off again
I fell asleep
Because you took forever

[gee-tar solo]

Don't dare stall again!

Don't take forever (take forever)
I do this for you (always for you)
This IS real important (kind of important)
I'm buying you shoes
Don't take forever
Yes, forever (that's what you do)
You take forever!
That was fun. At last a band in Artistry that I KNOW...and LIKE!

Why no votes? This was really well written bobpie, and something anyone who's been in a relationship can identify with. 555

...including a mother/son relationship too, bobpie - ah communal bliss - 555

(Artistry) Wow, I've had lyrics to this theme in the works for years (not a parody, though). Good job.

"Just when I thought you'd found your wallet. You lost something else" : That sounds so much like me!!! Good job!!! I can totally relate

(Artistry) Hmm . . .Well. . .it was creative:) This one stretches pacing in a few spots, I could make it work for recording purposes but some of the liberties in pacing made it a tough read, I still liked it overall and love that you took on arguably the toughest OS of Evanescence to parody.
Matthias - August 09, 2008 - Report this comment
We need some more awesome rounds like Evanescence... This had to be one of the most intresting rounds in the entire competition, this one and Reel Big Fish, because they're bands we Amirighters wouldn't normal even take a look at. I agree with Dave on the pacing on this one, but it was still great.

(ABC) I like it better than the 1st time...even with the questionable pace, I still gave it a 555. I hope you weren't impatient with that thought? :)

This line made it all into a very clear mental image of the entire parody:

"Complain to me, I'm not listening (Na-na-na-na!)"

It was like a light suddenly switched on in my head. This is clever and even though I'm not procrastinating, I'll vote when I can get around to it. =;-) Next time switch to metric time - it will go a bit faster.

(ABC-4) I don't often say "See Above", but "See Above". . .Glad to read it again.

(ABC4) funny idea bobpie - although I wouldn't be offering to lend a hand, let alone buy her shoes! - 555
