The Lyrics

Yeah, it's another one of them take-the-title-of-the-original-song-and-turn-it-on-its-head parodies, they're so much fun. Well, not as fun when the original song is one of the Epic 40, but still kinda fun. A torturous kinda fun.
We are screwed
Totally screwed
Buddy we're so screwed
It's true, we're screwed

We're in deep trouble, dude
One thing I forgot to do
It's too late to do it, too
Boy, we're now officially in deep poo

And what's even worse, dude
That thing that I had to do
Makes me feel like quite a fool
I can't recall what it was, poo

Because of this, the planet Earth will soon be history
And each single galaxy
They'll all be gone because of me
And oh, no, no
I don't know when we'll be done fo'
It's beyond me
Cause I did this one thing, but what was it? I can't recall it
I plain forgot, just like e'rything I do, lost it
So at some time (some time) bye!
This universe will go bye-by-i-i, and that's for sure
Now I-I never been the type to be all "we are all doomed"
So uh, I won't tell the whole wide world, that we're gonna go boom
So tell me, man, can you please tell me
I beg
(What did I do to cause this shit)

We're gonna be dead soon
One thing I forgot to do
It's too late to do it, too
It won't be long before we go boom

And what's even worse, dude
It's not just us who are doomed
The whole universe is screwed
Because of me, we're all dead, dude

Uh-uh-uh-uh
I'm sittin' down and I'm thinkin'
Give me a sec okay
Did I do somethin' real stupid while at
My nuclear job today
No, no way-ee-ay - My supervisor would tell may-ee-ay
He's my buddy
Maybe I sneezed
Or cried or something sim'lar
Done something that produced liquid
And let it drop or fly or leak
In my toaster-er-er
Then things would blow and fry the world uh-uh-up
God damn you Murphy
But uh, I double-checked it and dude
The toaster's still workin'
But uh, something happened and the world's end is comin'
I don't like that, wish I knew what it was I did
We're dead
(Because of that one thing I did)
Dammit

We're gonna be dead soon
One thing that I did not do
Could've been what I did do
Doesn't really matter now we're doomed
(We're so doomed now)

And what's even worse, dude
It's not just us who are doomed
The whole universe is screwed
Because of me, we're all dead, dude
(We're so doomed now)

Sorry 'bout that, buddy

We're all doomed
'Cause of me, dude
Buddy we're all screwed
So true (sorry, world)
And it's sad that we'll never know
Never for sure
What the thing was that was the cause
We're deeeeaaaad in four...
Hours...

East coast, no longer there tonight
Down south, I'm sayin' your last rites
West coast, gonna go boom tonight
(I'm sorry it's all my fault, you see)
Midwest, I think will blow up nice

The universe is doomed
'Cause of what I didn't do
You can blame it on me, dude
And you would right 'cause I'm that fool

If you'll excuse me, dude
Got some things I have to do
Angry mob should be here soon
I think I'll bunk up in my room

Japan is gonna blow tonight
Vegas will lose its pretty lights
Jersey, can't tell the diff'rence, right
(I'll miss that joke, though it was cheap)
Britain won't be lookin' so nice

France will be real hot tonight
In the other way, amiright?
I'm runnin' out of countries right
(I think I've found what caused all this)
I'll tell, runnin' out of time

When I went to my room (Woooo)
Heard a funny humming, true
Though I thought it was my doom
Angry mobs with bombs and bees and tools

What I heard wasn't doom
'Twas a light bulb's humming tune
Source of the galaxy's doom:
Left a light on in my bathroom

Wait, what?

I swear, I am not lying, right
This is the cause of the world's plight
'Cause I didn't turn off a light
(You have got to be shitting me)
The universe's fate is shite

My bad, I'll turn off that light
Maybe the world won't blow up, right?
Now that I have turned off that light
(You'd better be asleep, Murphy)
The world should be set aright
Murphy is a reference to Murphy's Law, BTW. You know, the if-anything-can-go-wrong-it-will law? Oh, and you can pronounce "nuclear" any damn way you want.

Kinda surprised you held this one out for the "wildcard" round, also kinda surprised you have no comments on it. . .you picked a steep contest to debut it in, that's for sure:)
