The Lyrics

I actually bowl a lot better than this:
When I go to bowl I at least try to get 20.
I don't know what it is, but I think that I am sucky.
Even though I try, I don't think I bowl very good.

I think I'll do alright, if I try to aim better.
But every one I throw seems to go right to the gutter.
My score is never high.
I'll only hit just one pin or two.
My next thow is really bad too.

All I want is (Strike It! Strike It! Strike It! Strike It!)
But I never (Strike it! Strike It! Strike It!)

I'm going down to bowl, put some holes in my new ball.
Every night's the same, it's a pain. To my knees I fall.
I'll never really know, if I'm playing as good as I should.
I don't think I bowl very good.

All I'm needing (Strike It! Strike It! Strike It! Strike It!)
I'm not doing (Strike It! Strike It! Strike It!)

When I go to bowl I at least try to get 20.
Try to get a strike, but I don't think that I'll succeed.
Embarrassed and Ashamed, I cover my face with my hood.

I aim so much better (Yeeeeeaaaaahhhh!)
Then it curves into the gutter (Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaahhh!)

I guess I'll never know if I'm playing as good as I should.
I don't think I bowl very good.
I don't think I bowl very good.
I don't think I bowl very good.
I don't think I bowl very good.

No, just no. Sorry - it's nothing on Dexter Holland and even the thought of trying to better his lyrics is ridiculous. "But every one I throw seems to go right to the gutter." doesn’t NOT fit - there is one too many syllables; I have the actual version playing and it just don't fit.

I wasn't trying to "better his lyrics"... God I just did this for fun!!!

Wasn't much fun - quite sad really that you would sit and type that out. Next time you should try to ensure that you have the correct number of syllables in each line. Puff.

Being one syllable off is pretty good considering about 1000 parodies on this website by other people are off by like 5 syllables in some of the lines.....
