The Lyrics

( this is speaking about the tendency now to act rude and talk crude, as opposed to joining the human race as in the second part of the song, as they are invited to do, since the rude people are obviously unhappy)
I will soon be able to leave here
I see the signs that tell me so
We will welcome a-all here
We'll welcome all,I know
Even the yawning ones who are, to some, unpleasant
They're so crude and rude
So crude and rude!
So crude and rude!

Disharmony, misunderstanding
No sympathy, and no trusting
Two-faced people I saw talking
Holding on to me they're walking
Adding to the abberation
Taking the mind's liberation
Crude and rude!
Crude and rude!

There are goons pretending to be man
That's the fashion nowadays
These are the signs that I see
Likely due to a phase
But still they a-are very nasty and obnoxious,
Nasty and offensive!
So crude and rude!
So crude and rude!
So crude and rude!
So crude and rude!

Let the people, let the people in, the people in
Let the people, let the people in, the people in
Let the people, let the people in, the people in

Oh, change your thinking now
Now,let's change your thinking to some smiles
Smiles, but not those smirks
Open up your heart because it still works
If you are sad, c'mon and smile at me
I know that if you don't feel defensive,it will work
Don't lash back at people 'cause they're rude
Don't be offensive too
Just smile at them and see if that will work

I've seen this type around. Think they'll ever finish the song? Got some nice internal rhyme going in this one, Pat.

I just noticed that some editor left out part of the song: after the last 'crude and rude' there is supposed to be and after 'the people in' on the next verse there is supposed to be \o/ (now what?) lol

I guess this is one of your older parodies; I could tell by the dates of the preceding comments. Anyway, I think you did a good job with this one; I gotta give you 5-5-5.
