The Lyrics

I didn't get this from "Calling in Sick", although I was reminded of the song in the middle of writing it. The difference is, in this parody, the guy actually IS sick.
I am so sneezy
And I have red eyes
Couldn't get out of bed
I can just barely try
Looks like today I will call in sick
I'll watch television
Now which show should I pick
There's Growing Pains and Brady Bunch
Plus, Bonanza
Hey, there's a good episode I saw

I hope my boss will understand
And just how couldn't he
Sensible man
Okay, maybe his not
Maybe I'll get lucky
Maybe a lot
He could be just as mis'rable as I am
Watchin' Gomer Pyle go, "Shazam!"

Ah, nothing but dumb reruns
And morning talk shows
What a boring day
I thnk i'll twiddle my toes
I might surf the web
But wait just a bit
I can't leave my bed
Well, this is the pits
I'm trapped alone
Nothing but me and my T.V.
And now I must use the facilities

Uh-oh, oh no
Door to door salesman come
Just to bother me
Oh, the annoying bums
I tell them to shoo
From across the house too
I really should have gone to work, it's true
Ran out of Kleenex
I'm having a real bad day
Hey, I just forgot now
Today is Saturday

Josh, what's with your going around acting like a total jerk. I just don't think anyone likes YOU. You aren't ever agreeable at all, and you make the site stink. Go away.

Or if you, er, were just being sarcastic, then, um, I'll take that back. But I just think you're being a jerk.

That sucked, Weird Al would be offended!
Your Worst Nightmare - May 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Ah, you guys are both just saying that cause Josh 2 is a jerk, and Matthias has a weird grudge against me when I informed him that there was no band such as 'Nine Doors'.

And to the people who gave me all 1's, at least you could have given 5 for pacing, seeing as it is FLAWLESS.

Did you listen to the same "Bob" by Weird Al that I am familiar with? This one is hard to follow.
Agrimorfee - August 03, 2004 - Report this comment
I don't have the song in front of me, but it certainly doesn't read like "Bob"--it reads more like "Subterranean Homesick Bles" which was the inspiration for "Bob"....[10 minutes later] I pulled up the "Bob" lyrics on a website and flipped back and forth, line by line comparing them with yours. There are a few problems in pacing, particularly in the 2nd verse and the last verse. Oh well, you took the effort. 445

I think I see the problem I made here. The pacing was actually fine, but I did not write the lines the same way, which made it confusing. For instance, "I hope my boss will understand," is supposed to line up with, "Rise to vote, sir! Do geese see God?"

It's ok. 445 Josh2 was nice to me

He said, "Good work buddddddddddddddddddy"

I started acting extremely sick to my stomach as I began to vomit in the bathroom with my pajamas on during my free time as a beginner level ballerina. 445.
