The Lyrics

All this heavy rain is causing issues with the plumbing!
Someone told me there is a disgusting smell in the pipes
I know, its been smellin' for some time!
Get the plunger, stick it under, it'll be a'clean again
I know, flowin' through like water.

I wanna know, have you ever cleaned a drain?
I wanna know, have you ever cleaned a drain?
Cleanin' sparklin' nice smelling!

To this day, and days before, waste is hard and sewer smells
I know, its the remains of my lunch
Til whenever, on it smells through the plumbing, bad odours
I know, it must stop, its bad.

I wanna know, have you ever cleaned a drain?
I wanna know, have you ever cleaned a drain?
Cleanin' sparklin' nice smelling!

Pong!

I wanna know, have you ever cleaned a drain?
I wanna know, have you ever cleaned a drain?
Cleanin' sparklin' nice smelling!

Do you live up north. In Burbank they called off the fireworks because of the drought.

My garden can use some rain right now

Thanks to all three of you for your comments!

2Eagle: No, I live in London on some high ground on an estate, so Im safe. Thanks!
MrMacphisto: Yeah, I thought the OS's title suited the parody as well.
Ann H: Well, unfortunatly Wales and the North have been getting the lion's share of the rain.

well sometimes a brilliant title sub almost gets the 555 on its own - this is one of those times - perfect Jason - 555

Thanks Stuart! Do you think this will be a good SOTM candidate? Even the security code is DNK, which looks like DriNK, which also suits this parody!
Kristof Robertson - July 04, 2007 - Report this comment
I've got to agree with Stuart, Jase...the title sub was genius! However....

Now, young man; you need to get comfy coz it's constructive criticism time!

The pacing wasn't bad,(could be a shade tighter) but my one big peeve is the rhyming, mate...you've really got to follow the rhyme schemes set up in the OS. If you're not sure what I'm getting at, PM me and I'll explain.

If you want my honest opinion, Jase...it's not quite SOTM standard (other than the title, which would win the damn thing outright)...but you've got almost a whole month to write that killer parodty for the contest!
Signing off now- my fingers are tired

(SOTM) Not bad at all on the title, but pacing was, well, loose for me. . .and more importantly---I think I've read better by you. . .good luck, as I'm learning myself--take more time on parodies and fine tune them. . .try singing before submitting to make sure not only that it fits--but that it sounds right. . .you continue to improve though--so keep on writing!

(SOTM) I think something more could have been done with it...what exactly, I'm not sure, given the actual OS length. This was overall OK.
Matthias - July 14, 2007 - Report this comment
Not your best, but it wasn't that bad of a parody
Peter Andersson - July 17, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - What Agrimorfee said.
Phil Alexander - July 26, 2007 - Report this comment
Excellent idea for a title sub, but as with most of the other comments above, I think you could have done more with this (especially what Kristof said about getting the rhyming schemes tighter)
bobpiecheese - July 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Take your time with parodies, sing them to yourself, then you can write some amazing stuff! It's worked for the rest of us, I'm sure. Loved the title sub, though. Keep at it!

(SOTM) Like the backed up drain, this one didn't quite flow. And WTF is up with "Pong?" 444
Jason - July 28, 2007 - Report this comment
'Pong' is another word for bad smell.

(SOTM) Now you know why I have no intention of becoming a plumber!
Jeff Reuben - July 30, 2007 - Report this comment
Not bad, but I pretty much agree with Kristof. I like the idea for the song, and there are some good lines.
The Charnstar - July 31, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - BIG fan of the original, and I gotta say, pretty good. The lack of variation with the chorus' was a dissapointment, and I didn't get Pong at first til I read that. Yeah, pretty good, 5-4-4
stuart mcarthur - July 31, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) see above, and to answer your question Jason, I wish I'd thought of the idea, it was a beauty but it was a little short for a SOTM medallist, unless it was jam-packed with Kristofian-style killer one-liner gags

SOTM - Could be a little more creative ... not bad but nothing really special.
Jason - July 31, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks to all of you for your comments.

(SOTM) I think I've already said enough, Jase...not quite there, but brimming with potential
