The Lyrics

Basically, its about a guy who dies and only a few people show up to the funeral.
There’s a funeral that’s on Thursday
That guy from high school died last night
The sad thing is that I forgot his name
The kid wasn’t that bright

Then I walk in the place
Everything just sinks in
No one next to me
I’m sitting here by myself
There is nobody else, at his farewell
And then some show up
And they take a seat right next to me
No one else shows
There is four people, including me

[CHORUS]
I’m thinking that this is really sad
And I never thought about him a lot
Cause hardly anybody showed up
Don't ever wanna have to do something that tough
Cause there are four at the mourning and three of them are snoring
And one of them was his wife
Why are we here wasting all of this time?
I mean I didn’t know him, but it’s still not right

All I wanted was just a few more
To show before he’s in the ground
His popularity- it will not change
It let me down
It's not cool how it was
This can't be complete, there has to be more
And right now there is
Only three people- cause one left
I guess that he thought
This funeral is too boring

I’m thinking that this is really sad
And I never thought about him a lot
Cause hardly anybody showed up
Don't ever wanna have to do something that tough
Cause there are three at the mourning and two think its boring
And one of them is his wife
Why are we here wasting all of this time?
I mean I didn’t know him, but it’s still not right

Oh please, you don’t have to leave
Save up all your energy
Please don’t escape this place
Please don’t go out and get a cab

And all I know is
I get to mourn for everyone
And no one else is
Staying because Lost is on

I’m thinking that this is really sad
And I never thought about him a lot
Cause hardly anybody showed up
Don't ever wanna have to do something that tough
Cause there were four at the mourning and three thought it was boring
And one of them was his wife
Why are we here wasting all of this time?
I mean I didn’t know him, but it’s still not right
(Everyone’s leaving)
(Ok, I’ll just leave)

This was really funny. I laughed my butt off at the end.

I disagree a lot with Sweetie Girl, This wasn't really funny it was really sad. Although everybody leaving because Lost is on was kinda funny but the entirety of this parody was pretty depressing which is the feel that I'm pretty sure you were going for.

I was really looking for a payoff to this, but it just left me hanging. Maybe it wasn't your intention to be funny, but some chorus changes would have been welcome, too.

(Artistry) Touching, but I was a bit confused when you start out saying "a guy from high school" and "the kid", and then he has a wife? Great concept, though, really pulls at the emotions.

(Artistry) The only way I can see something like this happening is if the dead guy was a complete jerkoff, but even then humans have this weird tendency to feel sad about dead jerkoffs. I'm not sure what to say about a parody that;s not meant to be funny, and now I'm feelin' kinda sad, so I'll just echo everyone else's sentiments.

Hmm. . .Abbott, this one was actually very sad, which i can do, the pacing however wasn't as strong as your other works I've read, so I do have to take off for that, I gave you a five overall for a relatable subject, and serious parodies are in my opinion much tougher than funny ones.
