The Lyrics

Its always sad when you have to ship your old folks to a home
So if you're old and lonely,
You know i'm stuck here waiting for you,
I'm just an old guy,
I'm just shot away without a clue
And if you leave here
You leave me in a home cause im still alive
I'm just an old guy
I'm just shot away and i need the loo

Ooohahhhhh

I know I wont be leaving here with you

I say don't leve me here
You say im to old
I say... take me home
they say im a crazy guy
I hardly move Im getting slow
I say... Take me home

I say dont leave me
You say Im to old
I say... Its'a old folks home

I know I wont be leaving here (with you)
I know I wont be leaving here
I know I wont be leaving here (with you)
I know I wont be leaving here with you

I say its a old folks home
You say i fart to much
I say... take me home
and im set in my ways
I say its not past my days
C'mon...take me home

I know I wont be leaving here (with you)
I know I wont be leaving here
I know I wont be leaving here (with you)
I know I wont be leaving here with you

When trying to sing the parody with the song music, you have to squish all the words in at once while singing. It just doesn't work. Try to remove some words.

Bunch of weaklings... There's ten votes and only one comment. I don't call that feedback. The concept of this is very, very nice, but could have used more puns. The pacing, though not perfect (but who wants perfect?), can even be acceptable if you have an open mind to "squishing the words in at once" as Giovanni said before me. I woulds say 333, though the three for funny is really a 3.4.
