Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Anybody would be better
You make me sad at best
Nobody scares me quite the way you do,
Dam it, you're a pest

Although I was hiding
Still somehow you found me
I thought I was out of your sight
But just like the a blood hound
You hunted me down
You should know that staking just ain't right

A bodyguard would be better
And I'm frightened to be alone
Nobody scares me quite the same as you,
Why'd you have to find my home?

The way that you track me
I know you'll attack me
There's something quite twisted inside you
Don't want to start running
But I know you are coming
Please don't do this thing you do.

Somebody must be better
Make you feel you're wanted to
Nobody scares me half as much as you,

Crazy, stalker… dam it, you’re a pest
You really are a pest

I liked it but thought it would be about our upcoming elections! As in, anybody would be better than the available choices...

Can somebody do this better? Nice job there Walt. `5 stalkers stalking'. Bit early for Christmas but it fits.

What Project Sisyphus said... and that would be a good follow-up for you. The title line and bodyguard line are one syllable over the OS line. Keep fine-tuning pacing and keep the funny stuff coming! 455
