The Lyrics

An epic about a drinking problem....
In the pub the bartender called out real loud it's time for one last round
And my head was spinning but happy to know that you were not around
I lined up shots by my right side,
Won't yield, I suspected
My drinkin' was over the line

Whoaaa

Hungry now I quickly downed a Big Mac
Feel like death camp, had an acid crap
Gotta change my pants full of chum

'But don't blame me, baby I was drunk on rum

Maybe I'll stagger in, and try to defend
All my screaming from drunkin' visions
I'll strap the keg onto my left leg
It's not the best of my decisions

Hopefully, I won't get a slap
You'll tell me to stop, a plan I never attack
h-OH,I would talk but my butt feels like fire
And maybe I'm so freaked out and seeing spiders
And you don't know how the DT's feel
See that my pants I have defiled
And I'm belching up my second meal

In my psychosis scary Star Wars clones scream out with no regard
I see Springsteen in my rearview mirror
And the Pope tries to look so hard
Amusing drinks rise in front of my face
They are out of my reach and I'm pissed
I wanna chow down at Wendy's with Jack D tonight
And make flatulating mist

I'm heaving heavy at the porcelain altar, I think my lungs came up outside
Drinking's not fun at my home tonight
And you take my vice in stride
Together, honey we'll work out my problems
And find the love once again in both our souls

One day babe I'm not sure how
But I'm gonna get to that spot
Where I'll treat you real good
and not call your brother a scum


But till then don't blame me
'Baby I was drunk on rum

disgustingly funny...retained the urgent tone of the OS...especially liked the death camp / acid crap line

I'm still laughing at pants full of chum - some great lines in this one. I'm glad you got Springsteen in this one. Well done.
Mark Scotti - February 20, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Alvin &Tim! It's funny how the muse drives you, because the very 2 lines that you both mentioned were the first ones that popped into my head as I was listening to Born To Run on the radio on the way into work 2 days ago. I almost drove off the wrote, writing lyrics down as I drove! Gonna have to get a small recorder before I have an accident...

Ha, challenging yourself here Mark, much more impressive than the first one I read, well executed. Learning quickly you are. Brave use of the topic too, I've had a few drinking parodies myself, fun topic to take on. . .5s

(Drunken, slurring): Where...am...I?(hic).. This is RightIAm site I'm in?..(hic)...Wow, this is a pretty room! Whoooaaa...I see 3 set of 5's dancing across the wall!..(5 minutes now sober): Just like Gari J's parody on Final Pint Down, I got drunk just reading and singing yours as well! Reminds me of this Frat Party I used to go to in my college years. I was pretty drunk that day. Therefore, when I order liquor, I order water as well so I can dilute the liquor and not get drunk (esp. as a designated driver). Great parody you wrote! Take 555 more pints of rum on me!

Welcome to the contests Mark! It's seems you've been around the parody pen and paper for quite some time this was pretty good, a lot of bathroom humor (And that's not really my thing, but this was still impressive!)

Nice job, Mark. I didn't find this fall-down funny but it had lots of clever matches to the original ("chow down at Wendy's" was my fave). It also seems like a really tough song to do so great job on the pacing as well.

Thanks, Claude. Yes, this one was a tough one to do.

(SOTM) yeah, it's hard not calling girlfriends' brothers "scum" Mark - I sympathise - but more, I sympathise with your tackling of this OS, because I recently tried it and it's a monster to pace - I really liked the droll "It's not the best of my decisions" and the way taking that hallucination line allowed you to go anywhere - now that WAS a good decision! - 555
Mark Scotti - March 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Stuart! It was pretty much a monster to tackle. Fortunately enough, I actually heard some of the moer difficult lines immediately in my head, as I was listening to the song one day. I had to take it on after writing those...

SOTM...nice work here...pacing was great, and I agree that it's an OS that I'd never be able to tackle. Not being a drinker myself, this song reminds me why I don't pick up the habit...; )

Welcome to SOTM, Mark. I agree that this was a tough OS to take on. You did a fine job.
I liked the "I see Springsteen in my rearview mirror" reference...
Glen S - March 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Your sound-alikes were excellent. "Feel like death camp, had an acid crap Gotta change my pants full of chum" and "keg to your leg" stood out for me. Definitely keep writing.

(SOTM) You certainly know how to take a song and rum with it! Some good lines in here. Welcome, I hope to see more!
