The Lyrics

Not even close to my best work. This is a filler song I created for an album, just because I really wanted to write a Vertigo Parody. But a few people seemed to like it, meh. Tell me what'cha think. (And yes, that is Japanese.)
Ichi! Ni! San! Juroku!

I hate this state, a place,
Potato fields, no men
I spend all day working my ass off on the farm
Was born into this farm,
Which gives me harm, alarm,
Into my poor ol' Psyche…

My life is Woe… (Honda!)
On this farm in Idaho! (Toyota!)
It's just potatoes man, that's all we grow
And I eat freaking spuds for every meal!
MEAL!

The girls here all are hicks
Who live with farmer men who all are pricks
Just caring "bout their crops of Potatoes
Lined up in stupid perfect even rows

I'm walking down the rows
Pulling up the plants,
It's all these bastards grow,
I'll keep up on this rant,
I'm gonna go insane,
It's driving me insane,
Whoooooa, Whoooooa,
(****in' Idaho)

My life is Woe… (Baka!)
On this farm in Idaho! (Nandesuka!)
It's just potatoes man, that's all we grow
And if I have to eat one more, I'll just reel!
REEL!

(Gotta get out
Gotta get Outta here
Gotta get, gotta get out
I can't leave myself, I don't have a car…)

My life is woe… (Rara!)
On this farm in Idaho! (Shimasuka!)
I hate potatoes but they're all I know
And I can't get escape from…

This ordeal that's been plaguing me! (Why…)
It's like white slavery! (Gaah…)
I can't Deal! DEAL!
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, (Grah!)
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, NAH.
Meh.

Yeah for potatoes! I think every parody I've seen of this song uses the same numbers, 1,2,3,14 in a different language. Nice follow up on that trend.

Not your best work is DARN RIGHT!! I think the profanity--make that EXCESSIVE profanity--is where you went wrong, man.

An oddball parody, but enough to garner a 444. (if you aren't proud of it, then don't post it! :))

I only used 2 curse words in the song. And I really don't think ass is that bad of a word. And I am rather proud of this one, I just could'nt think of any ways to improve it when I was finished, which left me wondering...
