The Lyrics

I don't feel the way I used to feel
I try to smile and instead I cry
I snore when it snows

'Cause someone has taken motor skills
I'm dumber now
I defaulted my medical bills
They took my brain away

Last July, the doctors they all tried
To heal my aching back
Radical brain surgery
To cut some nerves away
After which, I fell on hard times
Won't arrange payments with me

I never thought they'd take it back from me
They did
They could have given me wage garnishment
And that would settle it
Now I just drool from my open jaw
I freely fart
Can't dance the cha-cha at all
They took my brain away

Ain't no lie, I piss into my pants
And I'm just speaking dreck
All these things they bother me
They took my brain away
In my mind is a second hand mind
oh oh oh
A medical tragedy

Food don't taste the same to me

They took my brain away
So I try to kiss with uncrossed eyes
And hope to get my brain back
Get me a good attorney
They took my brain away
Change my mind back to better times
oh oh oh
Losing my memory

Fix my brain
Fix my brain
Fix my brain
Fix my brain today

That was pretty funny Agri, the OS is so limited, but once an idea hits--the song becomes so easy--which showed in your parody, well done. and hey, the bomber only hit you with threes, that's cool too!

I must say this was the expected parody for this song. Nothing surprising (especially after hearing that awful recording that Jimmy Eat Word did). :-) But, you did a wonderful job with it.
