The Lyrics

I'm going cuckoo
thought you should know
Don't know what to do
brain's working slow
Don't work like it's meant; like a clogged drain
I'm going cuckoo, feel really strange

So now I'm drooling
my thinker's blown
Think it's unspooling
It don't work no more
It's like wet cement; been re-arranged
I'm crying, "boo-hoo"; what was I sayin'?

Try, though I try, I have with all my might
Rough on you to discover your mind is gone; an awful plight

Been drinking all day
I feel depressed
Not feeling OK
I'm really stressed
My head is so bent, there's not much there
Am going cuckoo; I'm in despair

Sigh, then I cry, this makes me so uptight
Depressed, I'm sorely tempted to drink a bottle of 'Woolite'

I'm going cuckoo
I think it shows
I'm coming unglued
Like Mister Poe
Soon I'll be ravin'; won't know my name
Yes, now I'm cuckoo; clearly deranged

(Yeah, completely insane)
(Hey, I'm goin' goo-goo)
(Yeah, now I'm cuckoo)

I didn't know it right now. It seems like a difficult one to parody. Good job. 5's

Great parody...the cure is writing parodies on that just a symptom OF THE DISEASE ITSELF AH-HAHAHAHAHMWWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

P.S. Paul, I kid you not, a few days ago I started working on a parody of The Beatles' song "I'm Looking Through You", but I scrapped it.

Adagio/JB/MrMacphisto/JD - Thanks! JD - it's hard to tell - part of the "vicious/hilarious/unconscious" cycle. I get the order mixed up all the time...I was surprised the OS had only been parodied here twice before, and once by Rick, who has done ALL the Beatles songs, with a twistedly-funny number about literalizing the concept on his ex, (JB did the other - about "Fugu" the poisonous fish, you could die laughing in that fish story). I always loved the way the OS flows; it's such a short song time-wise that manages to say so very much about a failing relationship in short bursts of imagery. And the tempo is so up-beat that I find it extremely uplifting. It's good parody material, JD...give it another look sometime, maybe with a fresh topic...

Gosh, JD, maybe my 'thinker' really is blown...I meant to say "part of the vicious "insanity/hilarity" cycle. I really WAS mixed up THAT time. Jeez, I musta been crazy to miss that mistake...Guess that just proves your point...hmmm...I guess if it's a cycle it really doesn't matter which one comes first because you get to keep going through it over & over & over &...AH-HAHAHAHAHMWWAHAHAHAHA!!!!
