The Lyrics

Isn't the dictionary fun??
If you come to a bend, you should brake or slow down; CHICANE*
Teacher graded your work, it don't come back; "NO NAME"
They all say, they all say, "With no pain: NO GAIN"

If you're painting your shed, they touch it, they'll be dead; WET PAINT
Those kids threw a baseball, breaking both of your win-DOW PANES
You stole free samples from the basket; A SHAME


If you're playing True Crime and you hear "Dim-Sum Time"; NICK KANG
You can get your hair back if your hairline lacks; ROGAINE
The Solar System was made by the BIG BANG

Dentist pulling out teeth, don't use drugs; PROCAINE*

I like the idea a lot, this song has been parodied to death, so its tough to come up with a good, original idea for it. Not bad execution, just a little clunky in spots.

Liked the first and third verse a lot - the middle one left me kind of flat, so I gave you 4's.
