The Lyrics

DID YOU KNOW? Amiright's very own MooRocca runs the web's definitive Monkees fan site, Monkees 101. Not that THIS has anything to do with THAT. Just thought y'all should know.
I thought God was quite the all-inclusive dude
Cool with every culture, race, and creed
Ain't no saints and Satans
Ain't no white and black
Who's to say what's truth and what's just wack?

Then I washed my brain
Now I'm an extremist
Not a grain
Of charm to be found
Your side bites! (Oooh)
I'm an extremist
I've got the meanest
God in town

I'll go off in more or less a public place
Seems the less I think, the more I blow
Shrinks say I'm explosive
Kind of wi-red tight
Don'tcha tick me off - I might ignite

'Cause I washed my brain
Now I'm an extremist
If you're sane
You're on the wrong side
I'm da bomb! (Oooh)
I'm an extremist
My fondest dream is
Suicide

[Reload]

I'm my favorite martyr
I'm a one-way flight
I'm a real self-starter
Got a light?

Yes, I washed my brain
Now I'm an extremist
Old Hussein?
An amateur schmuck!
I'm a nut! (Oooh)
I'm an extremist
I'd give up meanness
But you suck!

Yes, I washed my brain!
Now I'm an extremist!
(etc.)

well, while I've bin gardening Spaff, you've obviously bin Ladening - the perfect solution of course is to get all the suicide bombers from all fundamentalist walks of strife, give em some phosphate, and put 'em on an island - boom! everyone's happy - 555 btw

Brutal. Fierce. Fiveworthy masterpiece.

I can't believe I'm finally getting to read this!!! ...And it's sooooo worth the wait... well done! (I'm not just saying that because you mentioned me in the preface, ieither. Thanks for that!) I particularly loved, "I've got the meanest God in town." You probably could have guessed that I would.

Oh yeah, before I forget...
You're still sure you don't want to stop by the ranch for some Kool-ade, later? Well, if you change your mind, we won't be sealing it off until about 4, so feel free to drop by any time before that.. ;)

Very good Spaff.com, 555 for you.

A simple idea, perfectly executed....and I'm talking about the parody, Spaff, not the next shoe bomb terror. How you managed to inject some black humour into this topic and STILL make it fun is beyond me...well done! 555

Extremely well done!

Spaff, is there really any point in me leaving a comment? As usual, it's brilliant - I like the wordplay (Shrinks say I'm explosive) and lines like 'I've got the meanest God in town'. You know the drill (I'm surprised you're not bored of it by now) - hilarious, witty, you're a genius, blah, blah, blah. I'm going to vote some extreme fives now.

Thanx, scholar rhodes & MasonR & Local Celebrity & Lee OJ & Ralphing Luke & Sister Evenstar!

Mel: Well, anything but watch "Weekend at Bernie's" (1 or 2). I have my limits.
Sweet Indigo: The day I get bored of comments like yours is the day I stop writing forever.
MacFist: Very cool, albeit delusional, of you. But thanks!

Spaff, your opinion is stupid and if you insist on this course of insipid mediocrity i'm just going to have to nuke Utah. But first, here's an explosive 555.

Laudanum: You can't scare me with that - the military has been nuking Utah for decades. We hardly notice anymore.
