The Lyrics

Part of my "World Go Boom" self-challenge. So, Todd in the Shadows (one of the many silly internet reviewer peoples I watch) described this song as being about a night where they had every party. So my parody proposes this question: what about the poor bastard who had to try (and fail) to sleep while this party to end all parties was going on next door?
I was tossin' in my bed
Music poundin' in my head
Started partyin' at noon
Actin' like a bunch o' hoons
And the streets were filled with cars
On the curb and in the yard
My eyes are bloodshot, it's true
Bloody teenagers are tools

And they jammed all night
They set up spotlights
Drank booze
Oh, hell
Might've had fun, sure
But I wish I could've snoozed
Damn

No sleep last night
Well, I tried to call the cops
But they joined in, and got plotzed
Hope the charges are not dropped
No sleep last night
They were pissing in my yard
Now the windows are in shards
Sleeping through all that is hard

No sleep last night
Thought they'd end at twelve o'clock
Stumble homeward in the dark
Prob'ly meet some angry dogs
No chance, that's shite
Their disturbance broke the law
But they never bloody stopped
Oh-whoa-oh

No sleep last night
Not a single wink
No sleep last night
Not a single wink

I could hear them counting shots
Angry cursing at their boss
Spinning donuts in the car
And their puking on the floor
'Tis the main source of my stress
Wish I could change my address
But it's quite a tricky sale
Cause each night, same bloody tale

Ev'ry single night
Seems it's party time
For them
No fair
Wish they'd just watch porn
This is my own form of hell
Damn

No sleep last night
They can-canned on tabletops
Think they drank 'bout ev'ry drop
Of booze that was on the block
No sleep last night
Had a kareoke bar
Tried to belt out Bruno Mars
Couldn't hit a note at all

No sleep last night
I had put my earmuffs on
Had each door and window locked
But their noise I couldn't block
No sleep last night
Raided ev'ry liquor store
So that they could party more
Oh-whoa-oh

No sleep last night
Not a single wink
(Not a single wink)
No sleep last night
Not a single wink
(Not a single wink)
No sleep last night

Shut! The! Hell! Up!
Shut! The! Hell! Up!
Shut! The! Hell! Up!
Shut! The! Hell! Up!
Shut! The! Hell! Up!
Shut! The! Hell! Up!

No sleep last night
Took some sleeping pills, well, lots
But they didn't help a jot
Now I'm camped out on the bog
No sleep last night
Then they set off fireworks
Gave some wedgies to some nerds
What a useless group of jerks

No sleep last night
And they played song after song
On The Floor and Party Rock
And that bloody Bieber sod
No sleep last night
No hangovers do they show
Isn't that a fuckin' low?
Oh-whoa-oh
No sleep last night
Now I need a drink
On the Floor and Party Rock Anthem shall be parodied as part of the self-challenge. I've parodied Bieber once as a dare from my brother, and I'll be damned if I ever parody the little twit ever again.

This was great! I loved all your myriad examples of their behavior, especially 'pissing in my yard' and the karaoke verse.

Expert chorus changes and the SHUTTHEHELLUP chant were great!

It happens every summer where they would have a fiesta every night. I mean, do they even sleep?

(ABC) I thought this was a lot of fun. The OS is so enjoyable and whimsical and you matched that energy perfectly. The "SHUT! THE! HELL! UP!" chant was a highlight. I also loved the part about karaoke. Overall very fun, funny, perfectly paced, but I would've liked to see those party examples go even further. Still easily 555 worthy!

I loved seeing Katy Perry's part from another perspective that was brilliant. I would love to see this as a music video it would be hilarious and I love songs that take the idea of the tune and twist it on it's head and this did just that.

WELL DONE! I like how you kept it moving and developing throughout, only repeating yourself for emphasis (whereas the original repeated more out of laziness). My favorite line is "Tried to belt out Bruno Mars, Couldn't hit a note at all"

I'm a big Katy Perry fan and I love the OS. I'll go on record as saying that this may be one of my all time favorite Perry parodies! Great changes for each chorus and funny lines throughout. Excellent work!
