Original Song Title:

Parody Song Title:
"The Good Song"
Life is like an ocean voyage and we're on a cheapskate cruise
Where there's sweet FA to do 'cept watch the sea and hit the booze
But now inside my head there is a tune I'd like to lose
Well, thank you Mr Minchin, for this song
This song in on my brain, but it's a good song in my head
And it's good to have a good song not a bad song there instead
And it's got funny words, that's good, as funny as a good song should
'Cos the Good song is a song and it is good it's not too long
I know the Good song's good and in that I don't need to doubt
It's good the good song's good because I cannot get it out
And it is stuck inside my cranium.. dingaling and ****ing dong
And any time it goes some other bastard sings along
And it is good for singin'
I listened to some other songs, and many books I read
But I just can't get this merry little tune out of my head
I tried looking on YouTube, but I clicked upon Rebecca Black
And who cares, it may be Friday, but that's BAD, and it's not good
Metallica and kittens, Michael Jackson (white and black)
None of 'em can shift this song, it always comes right back
Good is good, bad songs are bad but even good songs drive you mad
Maybe I should be grateful it's good song, 'cos it's good
And it's a song, and it's a song
I sat down and I picked up my geetar
I figured I'd play something else 'cause I was getting bored
And I didn't know how to play the good song
But it's country, so it's only got three chords
When there's something in your head stuck there so evilly
The culprit is on my Tim Minchin DVD
Track 6, Ready for This.
Put your CD in the slot
Play this song rather a lot
But if it gets stuck in your head
And nothing else sits in its stead
Until eventually you find
You've practically lost your mind
The only thing left for your health
Is to decapitate yourself
Before Tim Minchin wrote this song, hymnal standards were so low
Yep, songs about the bible really ain't that good, and so
So Tim decided he'd give writing heretical songs a go
And so he wrote this song and it was terribly well-conceived
The Telegraph said, "Singing this song may cause no small affront"
The Times said, "Kind of jaunty, and it sounds a lot like country"
The Mail said, "Will hit house prices, cause cancer - it's a stunt
But if you only sing one song this year, then this one is a song
And it is good, and it's a song!"
Play this tune on your iPod
But if it gets stuck in your nod
And you just can't remove it...
Chop off your head!
If you just close your eyes and block your ears
To the tune that has been playing for the last two thousand years
OK.. maybe it hasn't been *that* long
But thank Christ it's really not that bad a song
Just because the song's main gist
Was written by an atheist
Who's quite a stunning lyricist
And wholly sure God don't exist
Just because Tim Minchin's words
From self-confessed rock-n-roll nerd
About what biblic'ly occurred
Shows up the book as quite absurd
When considering morality
From biblical absurdity
Yet still it's sticking inside my brain
Its earworm power not on the wane
I can't remove it, although it's
Unable to coexist
With any other thought that comes along
With any other song
But the Good song
'Cause it's good
And it's a song
It's not too long
And it's quite good!
Books are books and songs are songs
That stick in brains for far too long
You'll find that I'm not wrong
'Bout the Good song
