Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

He said, I was stuck in Colorah-do
So I thought I'd play the lotto
While I hit on girls who worked in my hotel
I can STILL hear the voices
Readin' off my choices
All five of my numbers
The Powerball as well

I asked him when he real-ized
That - he had really won the big prize
How's it hitcha - when you get that kind of news?
Man whadja do?

And he said

I bought - white lions
I bought - Polynesian islands
Bought a team of Playmate stylists
Just to trim my Fu Manchu
I learned - beer's sweeter
Served on - cheerleaders
Bought my - wife's forgiveness with a big diamond
And he said, Hey dude I finally got the chance
To live like Kobe Bryant

He said, I bought twelve or thirteen Hummers
Trashed one a week all summer
& Pimped the PINK one with a full Olympic pool
I got a head-to-toe conversion
From my live-in plastic surgeon
Called up EV-ry girl I'd lost to say SCREW you

Well I - I got the wife big implants
Bought some - custom pure gold - sweat pants
I joined some cults and made Phil Jackson teach me Zen
And then

I bought - Rhode Island
I bought - loads of Paraguayans
I ran - naked through the office
Bustin' raps from Shaq Fu 2
Now my - home thee-ter's
Decked like - Saint Peter's
And my - teeth have bling that's totally giant
And he said, I suck at hoops but here's my chance
To live like Kobe Bryant

Then I went to cash it in
But there was no TICKet there; the lawyers said Whadja do with it?
What did you do with it?
What did I do with it?
Why did I screw with it?

I'm - hidin'
'Cause my - credit's kinda slidin'
They just - repossessed my monkeys
And shaved off my Fu Manchu
Now my - new bedroom
Is the - zoo restroom
And my - wife disowned me when I stopped buyyyin'
But he said, Hey dude at least I had the chance
To live like Kobe Bryant

To live like Kobe Bryant
To live like Kobe Bryant
To live like Kobe Bryant
To live like Kobe Bryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyant

Maybe you have to know the original song to appreciate this. I do to both counts. 5's! Fantastic visuals. Would make an awesome 'Rock' video.

I'd say, of Kobe, "Sic transit gloria mundi"... but Kobe would probably say, "Uh-uh, I never touched Gloria Mundy!"

Thanks, y'all. FYI, this is based on a true story; I really did play the lotto once.

Michaelopedia: Gloria Mundy - isn't she the one Solomon Grundy married on Wednesday?

Haha, yeah. I saw your parody of "Bad Day", and you made, "Band-Aid"... How bout trying, "I think I've gone gay?" I tried a couple of rough versions myself, but not very good. I'd love to hear it. - September 23, 2006 - Report this comment
