Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

An ode to the fact that you can't go out anymore without getting into (or at least witnessing) a fight. What has the world come to?
I see some bad dudes fightin'
I see a rumble on the way,
I fear violence ignitin'
I fear a bad night for affray.

Don't go out tonight,
'Cos there's bound to be a fight,
There's a bad mood in their eyes.

I hear wooden chairs a-throwin'
I know the cops are comin' soon,
I see the nightclubs overflowin'
I hear the noise of trouble brewin'

Don't go out at night,
'Cos one of them just might
Plant you one right in the eye.


Hope you got some sense together,
Hope you have listened for a while.
Looks like you're really kinda clever -
You won't get taken for a ride.

Don't go out at night,
'Cos they're a rowdy bunch all-right,
To stay at home is good advice.

Weeelll, don't go out tonight,
'Cos they're a-bound to prove me right -
Heed my warning to the wise. I'd love you to drop in for a browse :)

Subsitute the words "sadly true" for funny in my vote. No need to sub any words for "pacing" or "overall" though.

Wow, maybe it's time for you to move. Some mighty fine writing here.

One of favorite groups to parody. CCR's lyrics so freely lend themselves to our craft as writers. Finely executed - beats finally executed in one of those fights that you keep witnessing. Kark - stay under the radar when you are out and about, OK? I want to see more of your stuff. Heres five knuckles - now go make a sandwich.

Thanks to all for your comments. I feel genuinely flattened - er - I mean flattered. I hope you'll be seeing more of my stuff soon.... (in the meantime, check out my Candle in the Wind parody called "Bundle Near The Bin") Cheers!
