The Lyrics

I could've used this blasting out of my alarm clock... probably still can
Get up up up, get up up up up up
Get up up up, get up up up up up
Get up up up, get up up up up up
Get up up up, get up up up up up

Rise and shine, wake up time, it is so late you should not wait until nine
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get the pillow, off your head
And get out of your bed
Did you hear what I said
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now


Whether bunk, or twin or queen
If you're tucked in now that is a travesty
Since the day
Can slip away
It's too late for your subconscious mind to dominate
You might be saying "Why can't I wait"
Well bub you're useless like elephant drool
Staying in bed like a degenerate fool
If you're young and wake up then you'll do better in school

You should be dunked in a sub-sixty degree vat
With water to wake you up you need that
Sorry there's no jobs for pro resters
You should have a letter like Hester
Prynne not A but B for bum
Your life's the pits like in plums
If you spend all day being sleepy
And by now I'm sure you must go peepee
I spoke like you are in pre-school
You know I would not have to if you'd just get up
And laziness ain't cool (it ain't cool)
If you're still in your sheets
Somebody should tickle your feet


Rise and shine, wake up time, it is so late you should not wait until nine
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get the pillow, off your head
And get out of your bed
Did you hear what I said
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now

Don't be sleeping, get up ASAP
You spent more than enough hours asleep
Don't be sleeping, get up ASAP
You spent more than enough hours asleep
Hear my sound, roll around
'Til you've found both feet are on the ground
Hear my sound, roll around
'Til you've found both feet are on the ground
Then stand, stand, stand right up
Yeah stand, stand stand right up
Yeah stand, stand stand right up
Yeah stand, stand stand right up
It's not that difficult
It's not that difficult
It's not that difficult
It's not that difficult

Rise and shine, wake up time, it is so late you should not wait until nine
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get the pillow, off your head
And get out of your bed
Did you hear what I said
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now

Now get off of your back and get on your feet
Because this is the way to end up on the street
Still not up? you should be tested for deafness
Get up you'll get fat if you're not up for breakfast
Go do something else you're not Rip van Winkle
Someone should stand by your bed and tinkle
Even though a wet bed might not get you out
It's something that might have a chance
You're very lazy, so very lazy
More so than my no attempt to rhyme now lazy
Throw off your sheets
Move until your feet touch the
Carpet or bare floor, and then stand and stay up
Now once you get up you must stay awake
Since your future and health are at stake
I know you can do it somehow
Just get out of your bed right nowwwww

Rise and shine, wake up time, it is so late you should not wait until nine
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get the pillow, off your head
And get out of your bed
Did you hear what I said
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now

Right now, you are more than a little bit lazy
If you're still in your bed now after you heard all of that
You've got the sickness of laziness but you can still be all right
If you heed my advice like this
Drink coffee out of a coffee cup
That should help you make sure to get up (get up)
Drink coffee out of a coffee cup
That should help you make sure to get up (get up)
Drink coffee out of a coffee cup
That should help you make sure to get up (get up)
Drink coffee out of a coffee cup
That should help you make sure to get up (get up)

Rise and shine, wake up time, it is so late you should not wait until nine
Get up, get up, get up, get up
Get the pillow, off your head
And get out of your bed
Did you hear what I said
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now
Do not sleep sleep snooze and slumber don't sleep sleep not now

Get up up up, get up up up up up
Get up up up, get up up up up up - Bummmmmmmmmm
Get up up up, get up up up up up - Bummmmmmmmmm
Get up up up, get up up up up up

[SOTM] One of the worst song's i've ever heard, but the parody of it wasn't half bad! 444

(SOTM) see above - er, no don't see above (redder face) - big effort here to manage to stretch the initial idea out over such a long song, Ethan

(SOTM) I was able to follow the parody all the way through despite that I couldn't really understand the original lyrics. The pacing is excellent for such a long song. I would have liked to have seen more variation in choruses but I suppose they would work beautifully as written for getting one out of bed.
Agrimorfee - December 12, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Repetitive chorus works for such a song like this. Interesting refs. to The Scarlet Letter in addition to everything else.

DKTOS, sorry can't vote

So what you're saying, then, is get up? Heh heh. I tell you what: if I set this OS to play first thing in the morning, I would spring right out of bed to shut it off. Good job on the parody. I particularly liked sleepy/peepee.

(SOTM) A couple of pacing probs, but then again, rap songs are a pain in the ass to parody. Trust me. I know. See my parodies (the_conqueror_of_parodies). You'll see what I mean. Good job.
Adam Eccleshall - December 24, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I'll admit to finding the OS rather... painful... to listen to, and so having trouble matching the parody to it, but the lyrics read well (although they do get a bit too... um... "preachy" for my liking at points). Possibly would make a good alarm clock song if you recorded it.
Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd - December 27, 2005 - Report this comment
I hereby declare this parody to be the world record holder when it comes to use of the phrase "get up" in one single song. As a double record holder myself (for "bum" and "bra") and as someone who has learnt from experience that isn't necessarily a good thing I'd still have to say that HERE it is.
Phil Alexander - December 27, 2005 - Report this comment
I'll second what Adam (yes, and Spaff) said about the OS. I would rate this higher, but it reminds me that I've got to get up in the morning... ;-)
Tim Mayfield - December 28, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM - Beauty sleep is just another term for lazy. ;-) Very good.

(SOTM) Paced well enough for me, Ethan; but it's so long I fell asleep halfway thru.;-)...good job. 555

(SOTM) I've heard this song in the Need For Speed: Underground car select menu. I hate it so much that I disabled the song. I've heard your parody on SoundClick before and it was a commendable parody of a horrible, horrible song.
John Jenkins - December 29, 2005 - Report this comment
A lot of good lines, particularly the "elephant drool" line.
Johnny D - December 30, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) But Ethan, there ARE jobs for "pro resters". Just look at the ads for scientific research projects seeking test subjects, posted on any University's student union bulletin board. They'll pay you to do all sorts of bizarre things, including "nothing"!

Rap song are a rough sell as parodies, just because they're pacing is so off-the-wall, it's hard the readers to follow all the lyrical stuff that rap parody writers try to do. Even so, this took a lot of work and it shows. Many respectable rhymes and couplets.
Claude Prez - January 02, 2006 - Report this comment
Some very good lines in here, and some good rhyming. Add me to the list of people who found the original very painful to listen to though. Nice job overall.
