"Could This Be An Omen?"

The Lyrics

Basically the story of the unluckiest guy ever. It's a little crazy, but I'm a little crazy, so yeah. (Just don't ask me where my ideas come from.)
Walking through ladders
My fingers crossed
Salt truck wrecked in front of me
I grabbed some and tossed

But now, will all my hopes turn into muck?
Never have been the fortunate duck
I really am convinced now that I'm....uh, screwed,
Oh, could this be an omen of my luck?

I went to work next morning
My boss had fired me
Replaced me with a monkey
(Think I caught some fleas...)

Now a black cat is stepping 'cross my path
This foretells my future? Do the math!
Ouch! Hey lady, I don't deserve your wrath,
I just told you that you have a nice ath!

When I opened umbrellas in the house
I found I'm harboring a two-ton mouse
And with his pee, the carpet he will douse
This streak of luck makes me feel like a louse!

Whatever can I use
To reverse my poor fate?
(Since now my garbage man
Went off with my date...)
Don't go dear, he smeeee-eeee-eeellls!
Rings my alarm beeee-eeee-eeellls!
Need some magic spells...

Went to a gypsy
Said "I've the blues!"
So then she tried to cure me
With her "Magic Stew"...

But when I had a sip of her home cure
At first I wasn't completely sure
That the potion was FDA secure
Who cares, I hope that no bad luck endures!

Now colorful dragons float past my face
I'm now in a halluc'nogenic place
And although for a bad trip I must brace
I'd rather be here than the old rat race!

Could have been an omen...
I'm caught in this moment...
Makes my mind be open...
Better off high than unlucky, fool!

It was great, everything flowed together nicely. I especially liked the 'nice ath' line, quite funny. And you know, I think people would be a little scared to know where you got your ideas from.

Loved this, Cat. Cool OS (although I think Jason wade always sounds drunk), and especially liked "nice ath". 555

As usual, you display a lot of originality and uniqueness in this.

DKTOS, Cat, but a really, really funny read! I see you haven't posted in a while, but I imagine you are extremely busy with school and the myriad other activities you always seem to be involved in...well, parodies have to fall in line way behind a lot of that stuff, for sure...but I hope we see you back here again when time and motivation allow. I mean at "33" parodies a year you won't pass me until you are maybe...well...assuming I can squeeze out a few a year and don't keel over might be in your 30's by then ~ ~ ~

(ABC4) You? Unlucky? I didn't think those two words would ever be in the same sentence. Hope these 5's counteract your bad luck ;)

(ABC4) I liked it quite a bit, I too DKTOS--and can't seem to find a good video, so I'll have to judge it on it's words alone--lucky for you--they worked very well!

ABC4- Sorry you're so down on your luck... are you a black cat that crossed your own path maybe? Anyways, despite DKTOS,, this was really well done. Good job!
