The Lyrics

This will be my first attempt an parodying an entire album, U2's new "How to Dismantle an atomic bomb"Their albums have boring themes like war, religion, love and politics, so I thought I'd spruce them up with my themes, namely, relationship humor, left wing propoganda, toilet faux pas and basically anything you really shouldn't speak about. Look out for "Video Bug" (Miracle Drug) and "Sometimes you can't make it on the bowl" (Sometimes you can't make it on your own) in the next few days.
[Babe, teen, woman, menopause!]

[Turn the heat up, captain]

Moods go up and down
One minute she's a witch, the next, a clown
She says "I'm getting fat but don't
you notice or i'll hit you with this stick
it's from the TRASH THAT'S OVERFLOWING!!!!!"

She's hot, she's cold, [oh god]
shes in a place called Menopause [god help you!]
And everybody else is logical,
except you!
you say one plus
one is three!

Three!

Flesh blows hot, then cold,
one minute you feel young,
the next, you're old
you're feeling very shy,
and then, you're bold
you know you cannot think,
at least you know

your hair is getting short
your boobs are getting long
your hips are growing wide
you've thrown away your thong

swinging to the moods..
swinging to the moods..
swinging to the moods..
ohh oh oh oh oh

She's hot, she's cold, [oh god]
shes in a place called Menopause [god help you]
And everybody else is logical,
except you!
you say one plus
one is three!

three!

Young man, all of this will be yours!
All of this, all of this will be yours!
All of this, all of this will be yours!
Just give her what she wants, or you will get hurt!

She's hot, she's cold, [oh god]
shes in a place called Menopause [god help you]
And everybody else is logical,
except you!
you say one plus
one is three, you are low and then high!
your moods are low and then high!
So I kneel!
Kneel!

No, Yeah, No Yeah, No, Yeah, No!
No, Yeah, No Yeah, No, Yeah, No!

"Eat your peas or else" (love and peace or else) and "City of 'Nih' Knights" (City of blinding lights) are next

LOL... good job, Laurence. I didn't do a parody of this song because the pacing is so damn hard. U2's new album is the best I've heard from them since Achtung Baby, so you've got some good material to work with. I especially look forward to "Sometimes You Can't Make It to the Bowl". As for some other ideas... "A Man and a Woman" should be about hermaphrodites.

Great job, Laurence, and good luck with the project...I love "Atomic Bomb" and look forward to the rest. One slight criticism on this one, tho....if you had a word to rhyme with "menopause" on the first line of your chorus, it would have been that bit stronger...minor nitpicking aside, this is worth 555

Yeah, the parody was pretty funny, I do NOT think that U2 is boring, and the real songs are NOT boring. I think that U2 is great.
