The Lyrics

Sorry about my first parody, 'Rescue Zelda, Link'. It was one of my worst parody and it didn't even rhyme. 'A Bum's Life' is suppose to be funny if you have humor, I hope it's better, too..."i'm sorry to all the bums who are reading this!"I TURNED 11 =)
Somebody once said, "There's no candy, only bread.
And I am tired of making burgers."
I looked at if she's dumb, one poorless non-moving bum
I looked as if I hadn't seen her

Well, the years has past, and we can't come back
Looking for some money so we can relax
Eating yellow lemons that are sour
Looking for a job just every hour

So much to do, so much to see
So why live if we really just can't eat?
You'll never know if you don't go
The cookies won't bake without dough

Hey now! You're a bum! You have gotten so poor!
Hey now! You're weak! You got hit by a closed door!
So what is on that TV
Nothing but a reflection of you and me

It's a dumpster, and they say it smell
You better get rich, oh, what the hell?
Do you prefer an adviser?
Or would you claim yourself as being more wiser?

The shoes we get, is all worn-out
The food we eat taste like brustle sprout
My world's a BLAM! how about yours?
We better get some money, but, we're all too poor!

Hey now! You're a bum! You have gotten so poor!
Hey now! You're weak! You got hit by a closed door!
So what is on that TV
Nothing but a reflection of you and me

Hey now! You're a bum! You have gotten so poor!
Hey now! You're weak! You got hit by a closed door!
So what is on that TV
Nothing but a reflection...

(intermission... respect that)

Somebody, like my brother, got killed in a battle of rich and just pure wealthness
I yelled, "NO! RUN AND GO!
YOU BETTER RUN FASTER BECAUSE YOU ARE PURE SLOW!"
And then, they said, "No forgiveness..."

Hey! The boy's alive, but he didn't survive!
I forgot we were dead when we turned 35!
I forgot my stupid behavior
Now my brother's teeth looks like a beavor
So much to do, so much to pay!
So what's wrong if my brother's gay?
You will never know for sure... (SURE!)
but I do know my brother is a her!

Hey now! You're a bum! You have gotten so poor!
Hey now! You're weak! You got hit by a closed door!
So what is on that TV
Nothing but a reflection of you and me...

So what is on that TV
Nothing but a reflection of you and me!

This parody , well... IT SUCKS. Half of it doesn't rhyme and most of the stanzas contain too many syllables.
