The Lyrics

DKTOS? Youtube it HERE

What is this hair from a dog that has bitten?
What about doors hit your place the Lord's splitin'?
Not all dogs on one leash, let sleeping dogs lay,
What does it mean all these stupid clichés?

Why did the butter fall off of his noodle?
Can't fight the Borg 'cause resistance is futile,
Shot at and missed but then sh!t at and hit,
But in the wind it is foolish to spit.

Face like she's been in a couple of crashes,
What is that stuff in those pans that cause flashes?
Sometimes these clichés say way clever things,
But other times they leave me question-ing.

Hair of dog bites, flashy pan scenes,
Wake those dogs, you're had,
If I could remember,
What each cliché means,
Then they wouldn't sound half bad.

Ten pounds of sh!t in five pound bags ain't fittin',
Glitter on poop still smells like someone's sh!ttin',
Land of the blind, the one eyed man is king,
Who in the hell came up with all these things?

A one-bit brain with a parity error,
Nervous as cat in room full of chair rockers.
Not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree,
Welcome as priest at Cub Scout jamboree.

Beamed down and back up one too many times,.
Natural deselection is candidate prime.
All of that cake, not a lick of icing,
I cannot stand not one more cliché thing.

Five pound crap bags, sh!t that's shining,
One eyed kings are wild,
If I could remember,
What each cliché means,
Then language and grammar would seem more routine,

And I wouldn't get so riled.

Great job Guy. I had a similar idea for this OS but never got started on it. Was going to call it "My Favored Cliches" GMTA ;-D

I gues you Stole My Thunder, but that's what hapens when you Put Off Till Tomorrow What You Can Do Today. I'm just Sick As A Dog about it, but I guess Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining and When Life Hands You Lemons Make Lemonade. Oh well, That's The Way The Cookie Crumbles! ;-D

OMR - LOL - Dime a dozen? I got mine free from the internet. Thanks!

Mark - Exactly \O/ - LOL

A♣ J♣ - Please be my guest and write a Cliché parody if you'd like. I'd really love to see what you'd come up with. There are for sure enough of them to go around. I don't get jerked when someone does a remake of one of mine. And sorry I beat you to it, I had the same thing happen to me a few days ago. ANd thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

M'Lady - Hast thou now bestowed upon me the title of "lord"o' fhings"? This hast been a most coveted ambition for this dedicated scribe. I am quite honored. I trust that your travels of recent past went well? Very nice to see you back.

Guy does these things well because, in order to be the best, you've got to beat the best. That's why he puts his pants on one leg at a time. He's just happy to be here, and hopes he can help the website. He's going to give it his best shot, and, the Good Lord willing, things will work out. After all, life is not just a bowl of cherries, and you've got to crawl before you can walk. I've gotta go now, but just remember: He who gives a five and runs away, lives to write another day.

A Guy by any other name would be as clever. It's a good thing you're back in the saddle again. After all, the idle brain is the devil's playground-- but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Seems you have a couple of little hitches in your getalong, though, pacewise. So it's scored 4-5-4.5 (if I'd had that option, which I didn't... ) :)

To employ a cliché: awesome!

I liked it, But.....I sit here without a cliche. Too sleepy to think of one. 5's :)

I can never get cliches myself. Ditto on Blackjack's comment. Ditto also on that licking icing on the cake line, but you can't have your cake or eat it, too! (Is that a cliche)? 555.

Michael - I tried putting on my pants with both legs at once. Please don't ask... Thanks.

FG - Thanks for you honest analysis - I rushed the last two verses at a late hour while tired to make a comp deadline, which I subsequentially realized that I still had one more day. Oh well "live and learn". I hate clichés.

John - Awe-Thanks

Pat - you need not make a cliché when commenting. I just appreciate it that you read and replied. Thanks.

Christie Marie - We have so many clichés in normal conversations (they are like oxymorons) one has to consciously analyze what it said in order to understand that we just either heard an oxymoron or a cliché. Thanks for looking in and commenting..

Funny parody! I also don't understand half of these cliches. Very well written!
Agrimorfee - October 26, 2009 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Sophisticated. A little less focus on sh!t and Star Trek would have put this over the top for me.

Ditto my comments above :D

Very nice job! I had to think about each one because I wasn't sure of the meaning
Matthias - November 02, 2009 - Report this comment
There were a lot of sh!tty cliches used in here (so I agree with Agrimorfee) still this has to be one of my favorites by you especially with lines like: "Welcome as priest at Cub Scout jamboree." It's not nearly as conservative as a lot of your work which is nice.

(Artistry) I didn't recognise half of the cliches in this parody. Maybe it was the weird way they were structured, or maybe I'm just a moron. Whichever one it is, 555 for you!
Below Average Dave - November 05, 2009 - Report this comment
A whole lot of very poetic writings and excellent rhyming, I have to say the style of TOS made it hard to read the cliches, but still very good job on making them work to this OS
DJ Blaze - November 06, 2009 - Report this comment
Here's 555, but is that too cliche?

(Artistry) Why, this parody was right as rain, the cat's meow, more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

I could try to resist the urge to give you 5s, but that would be futile... :D

Bil - Thanks for digging up some of my old stuff and giving it a bit more exposure. I take it you liked what you read?
