The Lyrics

Poor Michael Phelps - he needs a song to soothe his recent bad press. Thanks to LeoKeough for his "Dude, Your Trou Where They Belong several weeks ago for bringing back memories of this old song.
Who knows what new sorrow brings,
In a swirl, the darts arrive,
All my show in decay, I reel,
When surreal, I'm deep in a dive

The toke is long, there are heroes to portray,
But sublime misstep on that day

Puff lifts me, yup, give me the bong,
While the Legals cry, as I found a high,
Puff lifts me up, with glee, the bong,
Star from the world aglow, and now the smear will grow.

Some gang up to bruise poor me,
Pic contrives, looking maligned,
Oh my gaffe is near and now,
All my strife, doubt in my mind,

The toke is long, there are heroes to portray,
But sublime misstep on that day

Puff lifts me, yup, give me the bong,
While the Legals cry, as I found a high,
Puff lifts me up, with glee, the bong,
Star from the world aglow, and now the smear will grow.

Mind goes high,
My mind will fly,
Life's too awry,
Survive the day.

Puff lifts me, yup, give me the bong,
While the Legals cry, as I found a high,
Puff lifts me up, with glee, the bong,
Star from the world aglow, and now the smear will grow.

Good parody & title - I'd never heard of Michael Phelps until I Wiki'd his name a few mins ago (no interest in swimming or the Olympics)

I love what you've done with this 80s song; it's one of the best duet songs to have come out during the eighties; I think I oughtta snuff a perfect 555 vote into this one. Great work!

It's a shame that this even caused an uproar. Schwartzenegger was a big toker at one time too... Great job on a "high" profile story... 5-5-5
