The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
I cannot throw away
A single thing of mine
I have my kiddie shoes
From 1969
What will I do with all this stuff?
It's filling up the house
Somewhere among the stacks
I think I lost my spouse

It's heaped in mounds, I
Guess a million pounds, I
Bless this mess
The stuff I'm saving
Needs a good arranging
Bless this mess

Over there
Bins of pogs, Lincoln logs, tupperware
On the stairs
Thirty-four, maybe more, beanbag chairs

I have a serving tray
That shows the cast of Cheers
And somewhere in the pile
Are Skylab souvenirs

I really try to keep it neat
But it's so hard to do
There's stacks of Laserdiscs
Inside the chimney flue

Can't see the floor and
Still I want some more and
Bless this mess
The stuff I'm hoarding
Is (for me) rewarding
Bless this mess

In the john
Pooper scoops, hula hoops, old batons
I should pawn
My cassettes, Chia Pets, pokemons

So look around and
You will be astounded
Bless this mess
Everytime you're near me
You're just gonna hear me
Bless this mess

It's a maze
Roam a bit and you'll get lost for days
Look about
In the halls see the walls bulging out
Move with care
If you sprawl it could fall everywhere
In the end
City Hall said it all is condemned

Great job Rex, particularly like the Skylab souvenirs thrown in there.

I could almost identify with this song, but the stuff I saved has no monetary nor nostalgic value. The Kansas History Museum in Topeka has exhibits of memorabilia from the '40's, '50's, '60's, '70's and '80's. First time I ever saw a leisure suit in a museum, right next to the 8-Track player and the mood ring.

This sounds like my house only mine's probably worse. Nice reworking of the OS!

Lincoln logs...check. Tupperware...check. Hula hoop (shoop shoop)...check. Cassettes....check...

Oh wait - what was I doing? I was commenting on a parody. Seems pretty normal to me... Thanks for providing the OS - we parodied it a couple trillion years ago and I couldn't remember it to save my life....

Pretty awesome parody here. It looks like you need to go on that show "Hoarders" I actually did my own parody about "Hoarders" to the Alanis Morrisette song "You Oughta Know" called "You Filled Your Home".

(Artistry Round 121 (Abba)) - refer comments above (the one where I couldn't spell my own name)!

(Artistry Round 121 (Abba)) - In the re-read I just caught "I think I lost my spouse" - great line.

I noticed you abandoned the OS internal rhyme schemes in the chorus, that was pretty hard for me to cover on my SOS parody. I certainly am not hoarding 5s today!:

(Artistry) Wow, and I thought my brother had tidying problems. Excellent parody as usual, 555!

(Artistry) And I thought I was messy! Sheesh! It's ironic how clean and tight this parody about disorganization was. Good work Rexxy!
