The Lyrics

Both Sides Now.

Bows and flows of angel hair
and ice cream castles in the air
and feather canyons everywhere
I looked at dope that way

But now I'm having lots of fun
I share the stuff with everyone
so many things I should have done
but clouds got in the way

Chorus:
I've looked at clouds from both sides now
from inside out and still somehow
It's clouded illusions I recall
I really don't know shiiiit - at all.

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
as every fairy tale comes real
Tripping through my day

But now it's just another show
You leave them laughing when you go
They laugh and laugh but they don't know
They gave the stuff away

Chorus:
I've looked at clouds from both sides now
from inside out and still somehow
It's clouded illusions I recall
I really don't know shiiiit - at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say 'I'm a tripper' right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus clowns
I've looked at myself that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads
they say I've changed
But something's lost and something's gained
in tripping everyday

Chorus: I've looked at life from both sides now
from deep within - a misty cloud
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know shiiiit - at all.

Good idea, and I agree with the sentiment, but this had weak execution. The best parodies do a lot more with the original lyrics than you did here. I'd suggest trying again and resubmitting. Now I need to go get this stick out of my butt. d;:^)

Far too much 'borrowing' of original lyrics, but good idea.

I agree with the other posters. Good idea. However, don't borrow most of the original lyrics. Pacing (4) Funny (3) Overall (2)

I wish I could take credit for this parody but I didn't write this one, and I have no idea who did. But it is funny, I'll give them that.
