Parody Song Title:

"Slow Man"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This should be sung at about one-quarter the original tempo, as in adagio.
Blockin' traffic
On a busy road
Speed limit?
I go in slo-mo!
I've seen your fingers, ha
And heard some
Profane language,
It's mind-numbin'--

I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man

I'm not too smart
You might say
To make one full sentence
Takes me half a day
I'm slow-witted,
But don't you fret
I use dial-up
For Internet--

I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man

I use crock pots
For all I eat
And get all my sweetener
From maple trees
I get constipated
My chute's blocked--
I just search for Waldo
Till I hear plops!

I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man
I'm a slow man

Tellin' jokes
Is my new pastime
People croak
Before I reach the punchline
(Yeah) yeah (yeah) YEAH!

(I'm talkin' about a) slow man
(I'm a) slow man
(I'm too) slow man
(Ah) slow man
(Oh lord) slow man
(I'm a) slow man
(Way too) slow man
ęBob Gomez 2004

Bob - I think I was behind your protagonist on Lincoln Blvd. down here this afternoon. I was just trying to drive down to this place in the Marina area that has fantastic N.Y. Style Pizza by the slice to get one to gobble along with a coke to wash it down with. By the time I got there I was so hungry I ended up getting two slices...his fault if I get fat or have a coronary from all that grease...and I wish I had one more right now....5 slices for you, if you can eat them...

"Adagio"? Maybe "largo" or "lento" the way some people drive.

LOL, Bob. I swear I get stuck behind this guy at least once a day!

Did you write this about me? Because I started reading it Sunday, and just now finished(Monday, 10 a.m.). 5's all the way

Michael: that's ironic? Then you must be slowing down! Thanks, man, and good luck to the Yanks, Mets and Phils.
Paul: hey, dude, for a slow man, that guy sure gets around! One of these days there will be a car with a marquee on the back of it so you can punch in messages to other drivers. My favorite will be "YOU"RE IN THE WRONG LANE, F#@KFACE!" or something like that.
Leah: Hi, nice to see your smiling comments. Be safe.
Steve K: right you are, man, but I couldn't resist the play on a fellow parodist's name.
Ashkickass: there are millions of them. They are the one's guys of driving.
Dee: you couldn't possibly be as slow as this guy. He's so slow, you can leave the room he's in, go get some coffee, come back and then finish his sentence for him.
Johnny: all is forgiven, seeing as how you are Quick Draw McGraw in the comments field.
Sllllowly signing off...Thanks everybody and drive safely....d;:^)
