The Lyrics

OK, I must confess: I have autism. This probably explains why some of my parodies are weird. I have high-functioning autism, meaning that I can pretty much act like a normal person. However, there are still some little things. For example, I'm pretty shy, I insist on having the same thing in a few cases, I obsess over certain subjects (such as Russian army trucks, & I'm a bit crazy. However, I'm also really smart, & good at writing parodies. However, there are some instances where people will do or say something to me without knowing that I have autism. So, to ease the problems from this, I wrote this here parody. I hope this revelation hasn't negatively impacted your opinions of me. Anyways, just enjoy the parody.
Once in a while, somebody may not realize
That I have a certain mental disorder.
They might do or say something that merely annoys me,
Or I hate more than radioactive water.
I am pretty shy,
But I'm also a real nice guy,
And I'm a dang good parody writer.
I am also really smart,
Despite a sort of bad start,
I got some help,
And now I'm living well with my disorder.

Oh I have autism,
But I'm almost a normal person,
Though I'm kind of crazy, and I'm sometimes picky,
I am otherwise fine.

Oh you should be careful,
Because I have some odd pet peeves,
The wrong move can get you kicked to Warsaw.
It doesn't matter if you're a cop, or
A teacher, I'm asking you please
You'd better remember that I have a certain mental disorder.

Oh I have autism, (have it)
But I will not get sent to prison,
Though I'm kind of crazy, and I'm sometimes picky,
I am otherwise fine.

Don't call me a retard,
That's just so very wrong.
If I were one, would I be smart enough to write this song?
I got some real good grades in school,
That word doesn't fit me.
And I won 3 times in the spelling beeeeeeeeeeee.

I have autism, (I have it, whoa whoa)
And I really hate communism. (I REALLY HATE IT!)
Though I'm kind of crazy, and I'm sometimes picky, (Sometimes picky!)
I am otherwise fine.

I have autism, (Oh Please remember it or you)
Might end up going to prison (Don't go to prison!).
Hey I'm kind of crazy, and I'm sometimes picky,
But I'm otherwise fine.

I have autism, (La la la la la la)
But I have nothing against Muslims, (Got nothin' against "em)
Though I'm kind of crazy (kinda crazy), and I'm sometimes picky (sometimes picky)
P.S., this is also my first Weird Al parody. If I ever actually perform this song, I'm going to donate the proceeds to groups that do research on autism.

DKTOS BUT I salute you. I am the mother of a son with Aspergers Syndrome and I think he rocks! Being his mom has enriched my life in ways I would never have imagined and I am thankful to have been given the job of raising him.

I don't have autism, and I don't generally parody songs by Weird Al, however I feel it is very brave and original of you to post a parody that is personal to yourself about you--many of the parodies I write often are too--although I have to admit, I am not familiar enough with this song having only heard it a couple of days ago--I still 5d you because your courage in posting this deserved it.

Thank you all for your appreciation. I wasn't sure of how this parody would do when I posted it here. I had no idea that some of my fellow parody writers had it too! Heck, we should probably form an organization around that.

I do too. Asperger Syndrome, to be specific. I appreciate any effort to publicize our thing, even if it is a bit tongue-in-cheek.

I have a friend who has Aspergers Syndrome and another friend who has Autism. I think you're brave for writing about stuff like this. It brings awareness to it.

Hey, nice job Dylan. Isn't it odd how many autistic people seem to gravitate to this web site? Maybe it's a connection from Weird Al.

That's exactly why I came here. I thought it would be cool to write parodies like Weird Al, and thus, I found a new hobby. However, in recent times, I've been swamped in work & unable to do many parodies, but I'm not out yet! I will keep going, no matter what!
