The Lyrics

Instead of the soulful, grungy voice of Tom Waits singing thing...imagine a boy just going through puberty and his voice is cracking. Original Song
I woke up and I fear
As I turn and I toss
There’s a change that I hear
Sounds like my voice is lost
So I get up, and JESUS! Don’t look right at all!
Got a grungy exterior, and I know what’s wrong...
I’m just go, I’m just go, I’m just going through puberty
I’m just going through puberty

A mustache on my head
Though, it’s patchy, I dread
And I won’t get a date
With all these zits on my face
And my armpits have more
Hair than was there before
And my B.O. just stinks
Grew two feet in a week
I’m just going through puberty
I’m just going through puberty
I’m just going through puberty
I’m just going through puberty

Some words I say...haha
Come out low or really squeaky...

And my mom’s really tired
Sheets need washed and then dry ‘em
The bathroom, you’ll find me
“Mom! I need to be private!”
Got girls on the brain
I’ve never been kissed
But it isn’t weird...
I’ve gone through a shift
But I’m just going through puberty!
I’m just going through puberty
I’m just going through puberty
I’m just going through puberty

Now my voice sounds real good
I’m just glad that it no longer squeaks
Oh thank goodness for puberty (ha!)

Still acne on my back
And my beard is all patched
Now I’ll finally have fun
Find a girl to love
And it’s happened to me
Finally, at thirty-three!
I’ve finally gone through puberty!
I’ve finally gone through puberty!
I’ve finally gone through puberty!
I’ve finally gone through puberty!

How Tom Waits sings this song really adds to the humor of the puberty topic because he sounds like the squeaky voiced teen from The Simpsons. This is pretty hilarious! Great topic choice!

Took me back to 30 years ago (gasp!), but more fun and less facial pain. 555

(Artistry) Wasn't really hard to follow the top comment's directions, given how squawky Tom Waits is in the original song. That said, fantastic parody with a great twist, 555 vocal pitch shifts!

Coming of age baby!

(Artistry) The comments before me say it best, Waits' deliver makes this parody a home run. It sounds hilarious when paired with this topic and I couldn't stop laughing. The lines themselves were funny too, so this had everything going for it.
