The Lyrics

Honestly folks, I'm a good upstanding citizen, but I mean if you're going to go somewhere might as well make it worth your while and have fun with it. Even if that somewhere is Hell.
There’s a place down below the Earth’s surface
Where they blast the heat full time
You might say that it feels like a furnace
But sweat trims your big behind

Didn’t say my “Amens”
Now I am on the bus to Heck

We light bongs off the fire and the brimstone
Sure, We’ll sweat but the weed’s damn fine
God denied all these drugs, “It’s not my way”
All you’ll gets sacramental wine

With Hitler we’ll get so lit
Cause Satan is my best friend

Go and splatter on some suntan lotion
All your skin is still burnt away
If you don’t mind eternal damnation
There’s a room down here to stay

Your groans will make me grin
I’m twisted and kinda sick


Dude, I’m fine with the heat I’m from Florida
Here in Hell I can sometimes freeze
Al Capone’s sporting his shot fedora
He sure lived his whole life for sleaze

Live your life as a peaceful twit
Ozzy's here playing his big hits

Nothing’s taboo
Here in Hell dude
If you’re screwed
Chug some warm brew

"Heck... Hell" was hilarious, and the few liberties you took with pacing weren't distracting enough to cost you a single point - in fact, it may have improved because you didn't stick so rigidly. I completely agree with you that all the cool, influential people will be in Hell. See you there, Matthias.

Fun song and really liked the ending with the warm brew.

You're burning the candle at BOTH ends on this one, but it's all funny!! 555 incantations...

What the 7734? - That is the real number of the beast. Turn it upside down and backwards and guess what it reads. The hell with 666.

Fine CCR write her Matt. You do so few of the older OS's that I am so familiar with so it makes it a pleasure to be able to appreciate your finely honed writing skills. Hellacious!

(Artistry) What were you doing that made you come up with this topic, hmmmmm? "If you don't mind eternal damnation" is greatness, and I'm with you -- when someone misbehaves in Hell, Satan sends 'em to Florida.

Believe it or not I was cutting the grass while I came up with this idea... Don't really understand why

Aint you the lil devil now, Matthias? One minor complaint: shouldn't Ozzy be dead before he's booked permanently at the Underworld? :)

Good pacing (like Emi said, some points that weren't distracting at all), some cleaver lines, good write. Of course, who I am doesn't necessarily like the sentiment, but I do see the humor in it. :) Good job.

(artistry) 666(oooops), 555's for this evil little effort!
bobpiecheese - August 25, 2009 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Basically what Medemia said. Normally I'd jus write it again and still name-check whoever held that sentiment, but what the hell, eh? 555

The meter and rhyming are a bit wonky in spots, but nothing too bad. It might just be me, but the third verse looks like someone else would be singing it - kinda confusing on the perspective change. Still, pretty good work here Matt.

(Artistry) I don't know, maybe it's because I have a dark sense of humor, but this one really got me cracking up. . .kinda ballsy too. I like the reference to Florida, and liked it even more when you made the ascertain that Florida is hotter than hell itself. One note on your opening comment, you are a good upstanding citizen provided you stay away from Motor Vehicles, Things that can be easily misplaced, and Sonny's BBQ . . .seriously cool dude, really liked that one
