The Lyrics

Inspired by an ex-classmate leaving school to have a baby, this depicts the
mayhem to come when one's offspring throw a tantrum. (also known as 'tanty')
(Boo)
Slop on walls.
(Hoo)
Staining my carpet.
(Boo)
Gosh, he peed.
(Hoo)
Didn't use the toilet.
(Boo)
Bawling tantrum.
(Hoo)
This horrid kid is restive, terror just keeps goin'.
(Flustered little kid)
He's raging.
(Such a delinquent)
We don't condone.
(Busted brittle bits)
Pesters!
(Master Hissy Fit)

I faint when-I see my young child's door torn.
Faint when-I see fresh dung
(Poo!)
On my new doona.
(Boo)
Bawling tantrum.
(Hoo)
This horrid kid is restive, terror just keeps goin'.
(Flustered little kid)
Crazy.
(Such a delinquent)
We don't condone.
(Busted brittle bits)
WAAAAAH!
(Master Hissy Fit)

Cries about no gifts and crawls to his mummy.
Then bawls a-spitting infinite dummies.
On his high horse- come off it!
Terror keeps goin'.
(Pester, pester, pester, pester)
He's raging.
(Cross now, cross now, cross now, cross now)
We don't condone.
(Flustered little kid)
WAAAAAH!
(Such a delinquent)

[Instrumental break(ing of fine china whilst screeching childishly)]

(Boo)
Smashed dishes.
(Hoo)
Heater is running.
(Boo)
This messed cot,
(Hoo)
You think it's funny?
(Boo)
Toddler plugging the loo...
(Poo)
Oh me!
This livid melee, it just keeps goin'.
(Whee! Whee! Whee! Whee!)
He's raging.
(Me! Me! Me! Me!)
Ripped and moo-dy.
(Restive, flustered little kid.)
Terror keeps goin'. OW!
(Such a delinquent)

R-E-S-T-I-V-E
Child pouts as he screams at me.
R-E-S-T-I-V-E
Day care? The PD?

No!
(Sockets fuming, pockets oozing,
Rockets zooming, f***ing gloomy!)
This kid is restive.
(Soccer-booting, Rocker-hooting,
Boxer-looting, lots of brooding!)
Pure rage.
(Busted brittle bits)
This kid is restive.
(Master Hissy Fit)
Tyke is riled.
(Flustered little kid)
Creeps like lion.
(Such a delinquent)
He's running out of fuel.
(Busted brittle bits)
But tries strained crying.
(Master Hissy Fit)

(Whee! Whee! Whee! Whee!) Terror keeps goin'.
(Re, Re, Re, Restive)
But then I cave in.
(Restive, flustered little kid)
And wipe the house clean.
(Such a delinquent)
I've got to live.
(Just until he splits)
With this terror teen.
(Must get rid of it!)
DKTOS? Who do you think you are...ME?!!

This is too funny and quite imaginative. Wonder why no one is paying any attention to it? This one is worth three 5 year olds.
EmiLoca - September 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Freaking YAY, Luke (I should know, as I am a mother of two and can totally relate). Don't you go to an all-boys school? 5's.
M-Dawg - September 01, 2004 - Report this comment
How old was the person? And how old are you Emiloca?
M-Dawg - September 01, 2004 - Report this comment
I thought you just turned 16 emiloca. If that's true then you had kids when you were really young!
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - September 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Guy. Anonymous '007' has just turned 18, and naturally it was the combined pent-up sexual ferocity of going to same-sex schools that resulted in a most irritating STD. Technically, M-Dawg, she could have had twins at a 'rather' young age. Interestingly, both have flowing long blonde hair and pointy ears........
EmiLoca - September 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Don't worry, M-Dawg, I have neither turned 16 yet or given birth to children. That was me going for some shock-factor humor, except for it must have turned around and poked me in the eye.

On a more serious note, tanty tanty tanty tanty.

I confess I had to look up "restive". Well done; my fave line was "flustered little kid".
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - September 13, 2004 - Report this comment
SSH! I confess, I did too!
John Jenkins - September 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Well done, Jake. I really liked all of your substitutes for "sock it to me" except for the "***".
Phil Alexander - September 15, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm so glad none of mine are like that :-) Excellent parody, Luke
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - October 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks John Jenkins. I agree, "***" just doesn't really rhyme. Phil- a female actually mated with you?! ;)
