"Show Up"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

There's always that one guy who says they're gonna do a thing and then consistently fail to do the thing.
Yeah, you gotta show up
Yeah, yeah, you gotta show up

A bad habit of yours that needs to stop
Each promise gets broken like bubbles pop
"Totally come down to your shindig"
I got it on record that's what you said
But did I see your stupid face? No, your promises were hollow
I feel like a complete dope, yeah, fool's me
To buy your "trust me, trust me, trust me"'s
Would, would, would, wouldn't hurt, buddy
Yeah, for you to show up

Ain't simply parties where you fail to show
Feels like when anything's scheduled, your brain says "no"
Your empty chair makes me feel so dumb, yeah
Why must you be such a flake? Yeah, not hard to show up
Just show up
Yeah, yeah, you gotta show up
Just show up
Inconsistent are your excuses, yeah, why you don't show up

At first it was you couldn't find a bus, yeah (yah, yah, yah, yah)
Ten minutes later, car tank's not filled up, yeah-eah
Consistency's all that I want (I want), so it's a big slap straight to my junk (my junk)
'Cause you never show up
And the "why" never stays the same, no, blame your cats for the "can't go"?
Thought you were allergic, so my eyebrow's raised so
This new "I'm ready, ready, ready"?
Call, call, call, callin' bullshit, please
Yeah, you never show up

I'm tempted to call it a runnin' joke
But that implies that it's funny and that ain't so
My good will's given way to venom, yeah
Sick of you bein' a flake, yeah, not hard to show up

I'd understand if you simply did not wanna go
No shame in introversion, lack of int'rest or random "no"'s
All of that's okay
But you're none of those, are you, mate? Yeah-ee-yeah-ee (uh)

Any time the word "party" comes up
You hop in, vrrr-oom, "I'd love to come!", uh
Pitied you at first, man, because
I sure hate it when I want to go then I cannot
But your gung-ho-ness is so so-so
Feels more like a big joke, l-l-laughs are zero, uh
Yeah, got no sympathy, bud, you're just a butt

After all the years of constant no-shows
I'm not quite sure why I bother to let you know
The details of when to never come, yeah
I should just call it a day, yeah, you'll never show up
Won't show up
Yeah, yeah, you never show up
Won't show up
You could Skype in, what? Laptop's busted? Yeah, don't try to show up

Cross "Filipino" off the list of languages I've parodied songs from. Which I'm sure is a list somewhere in the back of my head.
