"The Reason Is Glue"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I'm not a normal person
I can't get dumped and let a girlfriend leave
Or my neuroses worsen
Until my buddy Elmer helps me grieve
And so I have to say before you go

That I just want you to know
You'll find your plasma TV
Stuck up in my apple tree
Your panties will stay up there too
And the reason is glue

You said we'd stick together
That's something I'm intending to enforce
We'll stay attached for forever
Or would you rather end up like your horse?
I'm not opposed to caulking shut your rear

That's why I think you should hear
I've got the reason your hair
Extends two feet in the air
The reason your cat wears your shoes
And the reason is glue
And the reason is glue
If you leave I'll come too
And the reason is glue

I'm not a balanced person
Your hamsters on my ceiling prove it's true
And so you'd better think before you go

That your escape will be slow
You've found the reason your feet
Won't budge from this fresh concrete
The reason the doors are sealed through
And the reason is glue

I've found the reason girls stay
With bonds of love that won't decay
The reason you're stuck with me too
And the reason is glue
2004+ Hoobaspaff

Don't need to know the original. This speaks well for itself.

5s, Spaff. I was going to comment on the song...but I'm L-ing OL too loud at Sister Kicksass' comment.

And, for the record...if you really do try to glue an ex's Plasma TV into a will just keep falling out. And then you try to re-glue it again and again, and the glue will get all hard and the new glue won't even stick to the old glue, let alone to the TV and the tree, and then you'll get really frustrated and kick the tree, and you'll break your foot. And then your ex will show up and see you writhing in pain on the front lawn...with a smoking Plasma TV at your side. least that is what I read Mechanics.

This is so funny! And great with the rhyming. I'm not a big fan of the song but I might download it just to hear it while reading this parody.

A few days after seeing (and downloading) 'I Blog Alone', I decided to check all the Spaff parodies with OS' that I know. This is one of them. A fine example of how any random subject can make a good parody. I should know. - July 15, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanx (and condolences) for undertaking that project, creamcheesepie. And yes, randomness is good. As are doilies.
