The Lyrics

Being a severed head sucks...
Just a head, From my torso it was severed
I should be dead so I am shocked I'm still alive
Life is Hell without hands or feet
I'll just keep rolling moving down the street
Once had a car but now I cannot reach the peddles

So I'm conflicted since this whole thing is pure madness
Decapitation's hard to mend, Pain in the neck
I'm still around it's hard to understand
Now use my mouth because I don't have hands
But no armpits has meant no body odor

Why'd you have to go and chop it off?!
Freaked out because you did some damage and my body's busted
Now I can't even wear those gloves!
This situation's stranger since my skull's lobbed off

Could of hung me up at the gallows
Instead I'm setting World Records
Of the time dismembered
They featured me on each Talk Show
Since that's just some body that I used to own

Now that's just some body that I used to own
Now that's just some body that I used to own

Now and then I'm dragged and buried in the yard by Rover
Had some people screaming when they see my lower half is gone

Not much more than a pretty face
I told my body that I need some space
I started raking in the dough
It all went to my head and now that's just some body that I used to own

Why'd you have to go and chop it off?!
At first my mind was fastened and then it had to wander
You best believe I made the cut
Should of never told my barber "Little off the top"

Now I have become a bowling pro
But I tell you it's a headache and I get quite dizzy
Ever since I went and took that blow
Now I lost some body that I used to own

Some body... I used to own!
Some body
(Now it's just some body that I used to own)

Some body... I used to own!
Some body
(Now it's just some body that I used to own)

I used to own
That I used to own
I used to own
Some body...

Maybe you coulda used "I ain't go no-body" instead? Bwahahahaha!!!

Not a bad effort, Matthias. The barber line was fairly clever, but it would have been much better if you had written “Should have” instead of “Should of.” Similarly, the gallows line should start “Could have,” not “Could of.” Finally, the last word of your first verse should be “pedals.” “Peddles” is a verb.

Definately not a head above the rest!

Reminds me of a certain serial killer, how's that for a black dead baby comedy?

You rolled on a-head of the pack back in 2013 with this one!

(Artistry) Very funny and well-written, though there were a surprising number of pacing errors. I guess decapitation has consequences when it comes to parody-writing. Still, great work here, 555!

There were many funny lines in here, but I agree with the pacing issues...made it hard to follow in a few different places. With a little tweaking, this one could be one of your best!

(Artistry) I agree that I liked the general concept and there were fun lines, but there were a lot of pacing issues that really threw me off. You're usually really good with pacing so I was very surprised by that. Overall, pretty got, definitely not DOA. Closer to LOL. Ha!
