The Lyrics

For Artistry, not form personal experience
Went to a party, Id been dragged too
Iit’s not my type, it’s too fancy, cause of this my girl’s a fool
At least I thought, but that was just the host
It’s his party and he’s the pooper
He talks slow like an old fart

Right now I feel
Like I should kill
This guy named Clyde, the insipid host
Clyde, the insipid host
Clyde, the insipid host
Bores me so much that I’m cryin’

He’s not yellin’, he doesn’t even act cool
And I cant stand Clyde, or take him, Id rather go talk to a stool
Drowns in his own words, have you ever heard wet paint dry?
His tone it doesn’t change, sounds like some teacher from school
Ears have the runs

Ive got to flee, right now let’s flee
From this guy
Clyde, the insipid host
Clyde, the insipid host
Clyde, the insipid host
Good lord, I feel like Im dyin.

Bannanas id peel, oranges I’d peel
Than hear that Clyde, the insipid host
Clyde, the insipid host
Clyde, the insipid host
What I just said, I aint lyin
2007 Jack "Local Celebrity" Wilson

I've never met a Clyde whose hosting hasn't been insipid Jack - so I agree entirely - 555

Wow.... With vocabulary like "Insipid" you'd think that this song was written by John A. Barry.

Perfect title sub, Jack: great pacing too. " have you ever heard wet paint dry?" funny new take on the old phrase. 555

(Artistry) Reminds me of an Animaniacs episode where they keep trying to escape from a guy much like Clyde. Great title and had me smiling all the way through.

(Artistry) He was so insipid, he made you want to peel produce? I hate when that happens. Good title switch.

You get all 5s just for using the word INSIPID. Are we geniuses or what?!

(Artistry) Now that's a title sub I wasn't expecting. One of your best, Jack!

(Artistry) Yeah, I have to agree with the general opinion here, one of your better works.

(SOTM) The intrepid insipid rides again!

Wonderful title line sub. I'm just glad I've not been to any of his parties :-)

(SOTM) See Previous COmment, excellent work.

SOTM - Agreed, good title. A little short maybe but not all OSs are long.
stuart mcarthur - September 30, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) insipid just sounds insipid, doesn't it? - this one seems to have a humour all of its bizarre own Jack
Kristof Robertson - September 30, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) This is really rather good, Jack! Nice use of the word "insipid" and a scenario familiar to just about everybody. Great stuff. 55
Cat - September 30, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Short, but to the point! This was probably your best since "Poison Ivy," Jack, and Clyde is such a brilliantly dull name! Loved it.
Mikey Squirrel - September 30, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM- Great title sub. And very well done, Jack.
Ethan Mawyer - September 30, 2007 - Report this comment
This seemed a little sloppy in parts, but it was a good title sub and the second verse was pretty strong content-wise.
