The Lyrics

This isn't true, just a funny idea I thought up.
Since we broke up, I'm all depressed
Because I know that you really were the best
Without you now, my sweet Becky
Oh I will never ever feel so complete
I'll paint my place now that you're gone
Because I'm needing something else to concentrate on
But call me when you want me back again
I'm getting tired of calling you while on the mend

I sniff the fumes, see falling trees
I felt the branches of it looking at me
And I pass out, then wake again
Then I watch the paint drying until ten

I'll paint my place now that you're gone
Because I'm needing something else to concentrate on
But call me when you want me back again
I'm getting tired of calling you while on the mend

I'm so bored these days after I get home, why
Think it's 'cause I'm only watching paint dry
Oh, I have entered zombieland
I just don't know why
I'm just watchin' paint dry
I'm just watchin' paint dry

I'll paint my place now that you're gone
Because I'm needing something else to concentrate on
But call me when you want me back again
I'm getting tired of calling you while on the mend
I'm so bored these days after I get home, why
Think it's 'cause I'm only watching paint dry
Oh, I have entered zombieland
I just don't know why
I just don't know why

Oh, I have entered zombieland
I just don't know why
I'm just watchin' paint dry
I'm just watchin' paint dry

Well paced and well written but it wasn't really that funny. Good Parody! (Is This Your Debut?) 424

I agree with DAK about the pacing but lack of humor. So I'm voting 5-3-4.
