The Lyrics

Hello hello it's me, Verziggo Affirmative, AKA Allicat. (The reason why I'm Allicat is because I bite, if you were wondering. I bit my cat, I don't know why. But that's my problem, whatever... ) This parody started when I kind of misheard "Mr. Brightside" as "Missed a price sign." I think it sounds like they're saying that. Then, I made this parody. It's the next in the Idiots series. (The Idiots Series consists of all my parodies that are about idiots!) It's about some idiot who doesn't see a price tag on an item he was buying, so he thought it was free and just ran out of the store without paying and got accused of shoplifting. It was even more suspicious because he was running instead of walking because he was in a hurry. I know that is like the most random, ridiculous thing that you would have to be a total moron to think it was free because you missed the price sign, but the people who live in my head are that stupid. Not that I'm stupid- my mind's just a little mixed up, but that's it. I'm mostly okay. And I have never been arrested. I have never had any experience shoplifting either, but I have killed people. (just kidding. i don't kill people i just bite them if they make me mad.) I am very sorry if this is getting random. I should just shut up with the comments, shouldn't I?
I'm coming out of the store
And my shopping went just fine
Gotta, gotta get home
So I start to run
It was just something I missed
How did it end up like this?
It was what my eyes missed, it was what my eyes missed
Now someone's stopping me
And she's calling the cops
The whole store turns and looks
All activity stops
Now I'm being handcuffed
I feel dizzy and sick
I know this will be tough
Cause I'm going to jail
Now I just want to wail
"Now let me go!"

I just can't hear them calling me
"shoplifter, loser"
I can't see
Why they are arresting me
Don't believe I'm innocent
Ignoring my alibis
This must be the price I pay
Carelessness has ruined me
Open up my hurried eyes...
Cause I missed a price sign!


Didn't pay...
Didn't pay...
Didn't pay...
Didn't pay...
Was that retarded?

You know what? I quit. Barely anybody's reading my stuff, so what's the point of even writing it in the first place!? Goodbye.

No, on the other hand, I should make a parody that insults Fall Out Boy. I hate Fall Out Boy!!!!! They're The Killers rival, and I love The Killers! Rock on, Killers! (and U2, Jimmy Eat World, Lifehouse, 3 Doors Down...) Plus, FOB is the worst band ever.
