The Lyrics

Ever try to get out of something with the first excuse that comes to mind, no matter how silly it sounds? This guy has...
Big party Friday night?
I'd love to come, but I
Have plans to carve toads out of wood
A lame excuse, but see
I'm flustered easily
And so my words don't come out good
"Sounds cool, but my cat just exploded, so I can't, okay?"

I've got shoes in the oven, have to fix my fan
It's blastin' swarms of flies at me, I swear, man
Sorry, sorry, I can't come Friday night
I'm s'pposed to meet my grandmother, cause she's undercover
Tradin' in F-16 wings and pink folders
Sorry, sorry, wish I could deny
Without a stream of lies

I keep avoiding things
By claiming I've got stings
From insects I pulled from a book (a fiction book)
Set up an Iron Man
Film marathon? Sounds grand
But I've got beetle stew to cook
"Sounds cool, but my dog needs an iron, so I can't, okay?"

I've got grass snakes to untie, gotta slay a giant
Find a squirrel, feed it nuts and call it Simon
Sorry, sorry, I can't come Friday night
I've got auras to centre, clowns in my bath tub
Gonna whack 'em with a bent golf club
Sorry, sorry, wish I could reply
Without the heap of lies

I'd love to have an awesome time with you
But ev'ry invitation makes me spew crud
Not that I want to
"Sounds cool, but my bird ate my homework, so I can't, okay?"
"Sounds cool, but my fish conquered Europe, so I can't, okay?"

I left my car keys in space, plus I made big plans
To go to the North Pole and get a suntan
Sorry, sorry, I can't come Friday night
Because my large pet gorilla got loose in a villa
And I promised I'd lure it with vanilla
Sorry, sorry, I have to deny
Cause I just stole a floodlight from a group of Mayans
Gonna find me with their horde of vegan lions
Sorry, sorry, I can't come Friday night
I've got fanfic to censor, huge bag of hot nuts
Gonna eat 'em while watchin' Hot Fuzz
Sorry, sorry, my constant reply
Is just a load of lies

I'm tempted to count how many excuses I made in this parody, but I'm afraid my spleen ran off to Sweden to learn how to speak Portuguese, so I'm a little tied up at the moment...

Don't worry about your spleen, I'll keep it safe in 555 cl of Swedish cloudberry liquor - unless I need to make an excuse for not buying some later today.

You just reminded me... I need to iron my dog so I would love to vote for this but you know how wrinkling a poodle can get...
