The Lyrics

Part of my "World Go Boom Supplemental" self-challenge. In fact, it's the final one! Huzzah! Trying to describe a person who you only caught a glimpse of is quite a difficult thing to do. As this person can attest:
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface

Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface (uh)
Whatshisface
Whatshisface

Um
You need info 'bout this new thief
You heard from word of mouth?
I'd like to help you out but I cannot describe
Cause I suck at that kind of stuff, ooh

Eyes green, nose wide
Uh
Or maybe not, just give me time
Can't think, I dunno
Guess I was distracted by the radio, oh

What's his weight?
Was he fat or would the wind just blow him away?
I think he was about as tall as an av'rage guy
Is that too vague for you, Mr. Policeman Guy?

What's his name, what's his name
I don't know
He didn't talk, just ran like he had to go
Profile artist wants to pencil his face
Said I don't know, but you keep askin' anyway

Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Whatshisface
Whatshisface

Not everybody
Can recall anybody
That they have seen, nice and quick
Mem'ry photographic
I'm thinkin' somethin'
About him unique to him
This is quite a challenge
Mem'ry ain't my talent

Look, sir, I really want help out you
Recall that guy who bumped into me
I wish I could describe the guy to you
But I can't describe
That gu-u-u-uy
I need a sec to think it over
I could use a drink, to start my brain up
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh

Look sir, I'm really tryna work with you
Describe that guy who stole my car keys
I'm not as good a describer as you
And I can't talk right
Descri-i-i-ibe
I need some time to think it over
Colour of his hair, the length and odour
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh

Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Whatshisface
Whatshisface

Did he have bad teeth?
Did he have breath quite smelly?
I'm sorry, it escapes me
Guess he ran too quickly, yeah
I can't remember
Think he was wearing leather
Does that info help ya? No?
Guess that's common

Look sir, I'm really tryna work with you
Describe that guy who ran right past me
He looked like ev'ry other nasty dude
Maybe he did not
Forgo-o-o-ot
I need a sec to think it over
If I had coffee, this could go faster
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh

Guess I'm not helpful
My description's not helping you out
But you still ask me
In case above my head, light turns on
No one besides me
Was there when that guy ran for his life

Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface

Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Oh, na-na, whatshisface
Whatshisface
Whatshisface

Look sir, I'm really tryna work with you
Describe that guy who stole cash from me
Perhaps his t-shirt could a big clue
Twas white text on black
That's ri-i-i-ight
Or is that far too common for ya?
Guess I need more time to think it over
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh

Look sir, I'm really tryna work with you
Recall that guy who bumped into me
Wait, I recall something about the dude
Yes, he had a tail
That's ri-i-i-ight
I think that's quite a striking feature
Should I have mentioned the tail before-a?
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh
Now that the "World Go Boom" challenge is all wrapped up, it's time to start the "Don't Stop The Pop" self-challenge! Oh joy...

I can relate to this because I am terrible at facial recognition. The first time I was robbed at work I told the police the guy looked like a young Archie Bunker. I am sure if they had stood the robber next to Carroll O'Connor, there would have been NO resemblance - lol.

Feel bad for the sketch artist, FEEL BAD FOR HIM!!!

Funny tittle sub, funny song title, but...this was not well executed. It was sometimes confusing to follow with some of the unusual word placement, and some opportunities for more jokes were fleeting--just like the characteristics of ol' Whatshisname there.

I agree that the pacing was off in a few places, but I thought this was a really funny idea that was done pretty darn well. Great job!

First parody ive ever seen about sketch artists and eye witnesses- novel idea! Great job on varying the choruses as well. I think the suspect was a triple set of 5s.

This reminds me of the Johnny Bravo episode where they were searching for a criminal that Johnny saw and he just kept calling him the two armed man.

(ABC) As much as I hate this OS, I still enjoyed this a lot. The repetitiveness of the hook didn't help you too much, but you squeezed as much comedy out of it as possible.
