The Lyrics

Never got to go as a child
I couldn't pick the brands I really wanted
Tired of eating all the store brands
I'm sick of their site so now I need some healing
And this was the cerial you'd buy me
This was the cerial you'd buy me when I was a kid
This was the cerial you'd buy me when I was a kid

It's not like I got Boo Berry, or a taste of some Franken Berry
This time I've been craving, some frosted flakes for then taking
This was so wrong, so profound, couldn't have a box of fruity pebbles
These three brands calling out, "Post, General Mills, Kelloggs"

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, get me a bowl
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, get me a bowl

It's not like you didn't know that
I said the cerials I really wanted
For could have it been so bad
To let me eat Trix, Lucky Charms, or Cookie Crisp

And this was the cerial you'd buy me when I was a kid
This was the cerial you'd buy me when I was a kid

It's not like I got Boo Berry, or a taste of some Franken Berry
This time I've been craving, some frosted flakes for then taking
This was so wrong, so profound, couldn't have a box of fruity pebbles
These three brands calling out, "Post, General Mills, Kelloggs"

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, get me a bowl
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, get me a bowl
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, get me a bowl
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, get me a bowl

Never got to go as a child
I couldn't pick the brands I really wanted

And this was the cerial you'd buy me
This was the cerial you'd buy me
This was the cerial you'd buy me when I was a kid
This was the cerial you'd buy me when I was a kid

It's not like I got Boo Berry, or a taste of some Franken Berry
This time I've been craving, some frosted flakes for then taking
This was so wrong, so profound, couldn't have a box of fruity pebbles
These three brands calling out, "Post, General Mills, Kelloggs"

Yeah, Yeah, Post, General Mills, Kelloggs
Yeah, Yeah, Post, General Mills, Kelloggs
Yeah, Yeah, Post, General Mills, Kelloggs
Yeah, Yeah

this is terrible.....what the hell were you thinking when you wrote this stupid idea that you call a "song". at no point in reading this did i find any humour and having everyone read it they are now 5% dumber. i award you no points and may god have mercy on your sole
Roswell - April 26, 2003 - Report this comment
Well "dave", Obviously it attracted you in. Maybe I wrote the song to make "you" personally dumber. I don't see any songs posted from you. I just can't wait to see your first post. How about a challenge for you since you are so much more tallented then I? You come up with a new parody of the same song and see how many votes you get. Oh, and mister creativity, how about posting it in the next 3 days? You can do it, so are so much better then I.

never made it as a blind rat, couldn't cut it as a sewer rat either, tired of livin like a fat cat, sick of livin with no sense of feelin, and this is how you treat me, like im a blind rat, this is how you remind me of the rat that i am, this is how you remind of the rat that i am. it's not like you to give me no cheese, and set up a mouse trap, these words come out of my head scream out are we eatin cheese yet!!!! how about that?? that was off the top of my head punk.

And that was funny? You must be like 12 or something. Seems to me the top of your head doesn't have much to offer for a parody. Just my opinion, and as you have stated yours to me, you didn't finish the song, and you didn't post it for others to rate. Guess you just couldn't handle what ratings you would really get.

Interesting choice of song. My stepmother (whom I've not really gotten along with) never let me have those cereals either, ever since my father married her when I was 8. As a young boy, I never really learned why, but I'm a grown man now (22) and I also learned from nutritionists why. One reason is that those brands are so expensive (especially since they show TV ads so much) and that they are not nutritious! Too much sugar isn't healthy, some of those cereals like "Lucky Charms", "Frosted Flakes", and "Cap'n Crunch" are considered to be "Breakfast Candy"! I don't buy them for myself on a regular basis, but on occasion I might have a brand name high sugared cereal, though store brand or generic is usually going to always be cheaper!
