Parody Song Title:

"My Drinks Are Too Malty"

Parody Written by:

SI-MAE

The Lyrics

"Everyone in SI-MAE has denounced drinking. We occasionally joke about it in our parodies, but we don't mean it. Since we know alcohol can destroy people's lives, we're doing a spoof through the perspective of a drunk who urinates all over the bar after suspecting the bartender gave him a bad drink. He gets outta there, but gets pulled over down the road. He really starts to think about what he's done with his life. Enjoy or GO TO HELL!"- Apricot, SI-MAE
Vocals- Maya

The bottle may be gone,
I'm gonna drink it in cans,
And from glass, and on tap, on the rocks,
And maybe we'll get lucky and we'll both drive again,
Well I don't know I don't know I don't know or think so,

Vocals- Father Edmund

Well, that is that and this is this,
You gave me a bad drink, now you're gonna pay for it,
I will not pay for this, I will not pay for this.
Collected my belongings and I spat the ale,
No thanks for the drinks, I gotta p*ss like Hell,
I gotta p*ss like Hell, I gotta p*ss like Hell.

Vocals- Icy

These drinks are too malty,
Won't you bring me one fresh?
For the road, for the car, for the drive.
And maybe I'll get pulled over for D.U.I.,
Well I don't know I don't know I don't know *siren whoop* Uh oh!

Vocals- Father Edmund

Well, that is that and this is this,
You gave me a bad drink, now you're gonna pay for it,
I will not pay for this, I will not pay for this.
Collected my belongings and I spat the ale,
No thanks for the drinks, I gotta p*ss like Hell,
I gotta p*ss like Hell, I gotta p*ss like Hell.

Well, that is that and this is this,
You give me a good beer, and I'll tell you where I p*ssed,
On the plant, there by that guy {he p*ssed!}
I p*ssed where broken hearted drunks go off to cry {he p*ssed!}
What the Hell, I p*ssed on myself {he... ew!}
And said "Oh My!"
For your sake I hope I didn't yell, "I p*ssed!"
And do it there, but I wouldn't hold my breath {he p*ssed!}
I pee, your bar smells like my sh*t breath {he p*ssed!}
I pee, your bar smells like my sh*t breath {he p*ssed!}

Vocals- Icy

The Drink is too Malty,
I will not finish it,
On the road, on the go, on the drive,
The more we drink instead,
The less we work on our lives,
Well I don't mind I don't mind What the Hell would I find?

Vocals- Father Edmund

Well, that is that and this is this,
You gave me a bad drink, now you're gonna pay for it,
I will not pay for this, I will not pay for this.
Collected my belongings and I spat the ale,
No thanks for the drinks, I gotta p*ss like Hell,
I gotta p*ss like Hell, I gotta p*ss like Hell.


Well that is that and this is this
You give me a good beer, and I'll tell you where I p*ssed,
On the plant there by that guy,
I'm sick of this, You know I've p*ssed away my life...
"Hope you enjoyed or went to Hell. Crystal wouldn't touch this "train wreck of insanity ", and I couldn't think of anything for this one. Look out for another Modest Mouse song, coming next week. Or something like that"- Apricot, SI-MAE

Alright, who's doing this? These 1,1,1s are really pissing me off. And I'm sick of 1, 1, 1s on the grounds of "DKTOS, but this wasn't good." You don't know how it's paced. Therefore, you can't honestly judge that.

Loved it! It was good to finally see a Modest Mouse song done. 5-5-5!
Jeff Reuben - October 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Okay...DKTOS, and I voted 4-3-4. Pacing I give you the benefit of the doubt (I try not to give out many 5s...if it matches perfectly, I apologize for giving a 4, but I do consider that good). I didn't think it was the funniest thing I'd ever read, but I did think it was written pretty well.

Just glad to see my friends getting legitimate votes, even just one. Thanks Jeff!

Apricot - Okay, I'm here, from your link on the messageboard. I don't know the original song "The Ocean Breathes Salty" by Modest Mouse, so I am going to refrain from voting. I did read the entire parody through, however. I liked "The more we drink instead, The less we work on our lives" - that's a good message. And I like the Dr. Seuss-feel of the repeated lines "I will not pay for this, I will not pay for this". The overall structure of the parody is an interesting one, being conversational and plaintive all at the same time. I think you did a good job on this. I hope my comment, and my honest choice to refrain from voting, will reassure you that you can indeed get honest and conscientious feedback on Amiright. Good job, and please keep writing and posting.

Thanks for the comment, Johnny D. However, if you did know "The Ocean Breathes Salty", you'd know we did this song in the same style. Here are the actual lyrics of that part: Well, that is that and this is this, You tell me what you want, and I'll tell you what you get, You get away from me, You get away from me, Collected my belongings and I left the jail, Well, thanks for the time, I needed to think a spell, I had to think a while, I had to think a while.... We tried to keep true to the song, even the repetition of words. I do respect that you didn't vote for not knowing it, we don't really expect a lot that aren't DKTOS, because Modest Mouse isn't well known, and this isn't their biggest song. But thanks anyway. Good to know there are decent people here.

I also gotta DKTOS, since I've retired recently from the whole 'online-song-sharing' thing. I'm getting too old for that stuff now. Anyhow, it was decently written and I'll give you props for the moral of your story. I can appreciate the line "The more we drink instead, The less we work on our lives".

On the subject of you and your group having 'different senses of humor', I respect and enjoy that there are many different styles and interests here and all are free to post using their styles and interests as long as those styles conform to Chuck's guidelines. But understand that when you are placing creative work into a public domain, it is more about what they perceive than what you intend. I had some trouble with this as well, but that's just how it works. When you intend something to be a joke, you need to step back and see if people will perceive it that way, especially people who aren't yet used to your style. In my experience, there are two things that you can do to develop here at amiright, and in most places for that matter.

#1: Keep writing: You should express yourself in creative works because you want to. At the end of the day, it's about what you tried to accomplish in your creative work and whether you feel you were successful in accomplishing it. If others enjoy it, that's just a bonus. Also, by continually writing, in most cases you will develop more regardless and people will get used to your style. There are no guarantees, but that's generally the way it works.

#2: Have someone who either has no interest in parodies or isn't a fan of them read yours before you send it in. See what they think about your parody without any prior explanation from you, just reading it without any setup. This may give you a preview of what the public reaction will be.

If you weren't in the mood for preachy bantor, I apologize. Good luck to you.

Icy, thanks for the description of the original song's lyrics. From your description, I got a good sense of the meter & rhythm of the original, and I see how you matched it in your parody. So...that new fact, combined with how I like your parody's style, structure, and overall message, is enough for me to do what I just did a moment ago - vote this parody 5-5-5. Good job.

Halla Halla! Good to know we've got decent people! THANK YOU ALL!

I can't fairly vote on this song, DKTOS, but it reads well. Maybe a parody of "Float On" would be a good followup to this one! (I feel the same way you guys do about overindulgence of alcohol)
Apricot - October 05, 2004 - Report this comment
In all honesty... we have been working on a "Float On" parody. It's been IMPOSSIBLE. It's a hard song to cover, but we're working. We're actually working on a few other Modest Mouse songs, parodies entitled "Pants Fall" and "Bill Cosby". Wish us luck!

Just did one of "Dukes Up". It's modestmouse0.shtml in the 90s.

Ah! A good Modest Mouse parody?! It's a miracle! Great job. Very nicely paced, and humorous. Well that is that and this is this. You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get-You're getting fives from me!
