The Lyrics

A story of love and patience. Original Song
Steve McDoogan was a high school freshman
End of the year, soon comes the prom
No one left to ask, might ask his mom
‘Til one day, angel comes along
He said, “This place is so crazed
Would you please come with me?
Be my date to the promenade…”
Won’t wipe his smile off his face...

She agreed to have some fun
A senior and freshman
Through the halls, he’s now a legend!
How’d he get to go with Jen!?
Got money all saved up
What he’ll wear, he’s got planned
The best tux from across the land
He’ll be the sharpest dressed man!

Friday at five
Down the street, quick bike ride
Tux rental shop in mind
He’ll be looking so fly!
He pulls in right on time
Two dozen guys in line
Wait three hours time
But his tux looks just right!

Got his tux set, now it’s time to turn ‘round
He’ll be crowned when that night is done
He’ll be king and Jen his queen
They’ll go down in James High lore
Steve goes to the store for some cologne
Then he texts the senior on the phone
She said “Don’t get any thorns...
On the roses that you’ll bring moi.”

It's time for a ride again
Flower Shop, down on Branch
Show his heart, he will look so grand
One dozen roses for Jen
“Should I get lillies instead?
Or roses, pink and red?
And a card?!” Now he starts to sweat...
“Don’t want to upset my Jen!”

Just like last time
There’s at least twenty guys
All waiting there in line
‘Cept with flowers, this time
An hour has crawled by
But Steve’s still being nice
Prom is tomorrow night
But he’s stuck in this line

And with his new dream girl
To prom they’ll go
Time to go and ask his dad
Borrow the car and have a blast
But his dad just shakes his head
There’s no way, beat it and scram
Already has spent a grand
Go down on Clover, rent a limo!

It’s now prom night
Limo rental this time
With the same twenty guys
Had the same thing in mind
He’s patient in this line
Though most brains would be fried
Four hours in that line
Now it’s finally prom time

Had a great time
Danced and danced the whole night
The temperature just climbed
‘Till their mouths were so dry
Jen said “If you don’t mind...
I could use a drink, or five!”
Steve got punch in no time...
‘Cause there was no punchline
This is basically a parody version of one of my favorite jokes...which you can read here!
Also, I kinda cheated by leaving off the ending "Oh-oh-oh talk with me now..." I just felt like the "punchline" should be the last thing.

The ending was great with the no punchline bit but the rest was basically just a regular story about prom nothing I haven't seen before in a typical teen movie. Not bad. I just with that there was more to this than the punchline/ no punchline thing.

That was kind of the point...the majority of the parody was supposed to be a very (for lack of a better word), boring story - with the punchline joke to kinda hit it home and bring the funny. The original joke (the link I posted above) is anti-humor at it's finest.

(Artistry) Yeah, this wasn't really my cup of tea. Even if I had any experience with the whole "prom" thing (my school has "formals" which doesn't have any teen angst shenanigans attached to it last I checked), anti-humour has never been, well, humorous to me. I spend the whole time looking for the point and it ends up feeling like it's mocking for for trying to find one. This was well-written from a technical standpoint, but I would've preferred wacky prom shenanigans than a boring build-up to a weak pun.
