The Lyrics

This one was fun as heck to write, and came to me out of nowhere. .. may get recorded if I can find a better backing track than the one I've got, check out my other recordings though at badave.com and if you DKTOS, check out the official YouTube video submitted by Green Day themselves--Minority from the album Warning
I cannot sort my priorities
Which one should get my seniority
I multi task and write these stories
But I still can't pick a Priority

I built, a website
called badave dot com
Invited all my friends
and it started off quite strong

but low & behold
My sandwich has some mold
After a pout, I threw it out
Forgot to eat somehow

'Cause
I cannot sort my priorities
I'm not too good with authority
Timing is not in my policy
Oh I still can't pick a Priority

Thought I still had time
Yeah my mind is quite absurd
Made out with a mime
Bus just passed my house
Late for work oh no!

The beach was nice, till I saw a shark
But I swam on by him, saw a gift card for K-Mart
It opened it's mouth, it sensed my damn nose bleed
Opened wide, caught my hide, was eaten' alive

'Cause
I cannot sort my priorities
That choice made me a headline story
Cut through the shark, it was quite gory
n' I wish I could pick priorities

Hey!

One time, unwind, naked in a dark
I was just enjoying my vacation in New York
Then I heard a shout
It was aimed at me
Wrong room and all, had a brawl, Bottom got split wide

'Cause
I cannot sort my priorities
Why do I have this abnorm'lity
Can't say I'm much for conformity
'Cause I cannot sort my priorities

I cannot sort my priorities
I cannot sort my priorities
I cannot sort my priorities
I CANNOT SORT MY PRIORITIES

Saved the best for last. I love the whole "Jaws" scene, and you would go for the K-Mart gift card wouldn't you. As long as it's not Wal-Mart their prices are low enough. Flash a smile, and thumbs up at the camera, but seriously Dave.. "Made out with a mime"! She's cheating on me!!!!!!

This and "Disgrace" have inspired me.

I think we all have this problem -- I know I do... I meant to vote you Fives, but I got distracted - sorry. :)

Thanks everyone for your comments about "Priority" I really appreciate it, it encourages me to keep writing and to focus on things outside my problems. . .which problem should I take care of first. . .hmmm I think I'm creating a dilemma for my SOTM choices. . .Which one should be my SOTM--I've done too many songs this month. . .See--Priorities, what are mine? Oh. . .and John Barry. . .from you that is a HUGE compliment, thank you

Never in a thousand years would I have thought of using the word "priority" well, I mean I might have but I wouldn't know how to use it as a parody which you did and did extremely well so hat's off to you.

I thought this was really good, but some of the pacing was off and the whole thing was a little too random for my taste...still really good work though!

This was pretty good, but at the last verse I completely didn't get it at all.

(ABC5) I wish I could set my priorities, but that's kinda tricky when all the things I have to do are all variations on "wasting my time". Great parody to a great OS, 555 for you, sir!

(ABC 2010 O & P) Very good, and priorities are indeed an odd subject material. One problem I might have had if I didn't know you, your songs and your site like I do, was with pronouncing "badave", I pronounce it as "bad Dave", it paced well that way. 5s.

UBER LOLZ, BTW, I love the OS, and your sense of humor in this is very wacky. 555

Funny stuff, I can totally relate to this. You fit some whacky ideas to the subject :-)
