Parody Song Title:

"Don't Settle Yourself"

Parody Written by:

Royce Miller

The Lyrics

salute to starting over
Consider yourself Bankrupt
We take it you've cut
Up all your credit cards
Consider yourself a Chump
It's clear you've got nothing left but junk

Consider yourself Struck Out
Consider yourself minus some furniture
Your cupboard is really bare
Who cares, cause you won't be living there

If it should chance to be you may see
Some better days
Golden letter days, we hope
But don't ever look for anyone to foot your bills
You might end up with a dope

Consider yourself Flat Broke
You'll prosper again, we trust
But after some deliberation we can say
Don't settle yourself in with us!

I liked it alot. 554 only for using so many of the original's words.

Yeah, really creative use of some of the original lyrics. And of COURSE I'm partial to musical theatre stuff these days. 5-5-5. Hope this doesn't come from personal experience...

Leo--I don't know as much musical theater as you do, but I'm glad you write it---it adds some diversity to the parodies. Anyway, alot of my stuff comes from personal experience, to answer your query. And since you spell theater with an re on the end, does that mean you're from...not the South?

It figures that I would see this song on the day I found out I'm getting laid off!! This is great stuff, as usual, Royce!!! 555!! (PS Know anybody that needs a copier tech as of July 1st? ) :(

Great job on the theme from Oliver, Royce. Spaff, my deepest sympathies go out to you regading your news. I have been laid off on three hours notice before, so I can relate.

Good one Royce. The last line links in with the M&P parody "You're A Drain"!

As the ads say: "Why not lump all your bills together in one easy payment"... er *easy*??? Just as long as the guy singing this isn't the one with the baseball bat come to extract his weekly dues :-)

Stray Pooch: Thanks for your kind comment and I wish you all the best in your job search--I hope you won't stress out too much, and remember alot of us hit low times but somehow we keep floating.

Hmm, it's curious that I spelled it that way -- ah'm a haad core Noo Yahka. Actually, I'm somewhat annoyed by the stereotype that we all "tahlk dat way", but "whatevah"...

Tim Hall, I think you were talking to me. I'm not Spaff but that's quite a compliment!!! Three hours - that's pretty bad. Royce, thanks for the encouragement!

Although this is 3 years old, it just caught my attention. A very good parody of a very good OS.
