The Lyrics

My last Marvin Gaye song was: "Put Something On" about him being a concerned father now he returns but as a slob who can't find the television remote.
Clicker, clicker
Where the heck can you be hiding?
Wonder, wonder, wonder
Are you under the cushions sliding?
This show is driving me insane!
I want some “Pinky and the Brain!”

Harder, harder
To take this, My eyes dilate
TV’s showing Justin Bieber
And what he does on a blind date
So why did you hide away?
Do you want my eyeballs slain?!
No! No! No! No!

Behind blinds? (Clicker!) Where did you hide? (Clicker!)
Under my seat? (Clicker!) I searched the whole suite! (Clicker!)
Hear my plea! (Clicker!) Why did you flee? (Clicker!)
Oh, Where’s the remote? (Where’s the remote?)
It’s got my goat! (Where’s the remote?)
Deep inside my coat? (Where’s the remote?)
In the sink afloat? (Where’s the remote?)

[Random mumbling]

Clutter, clutter
In the caddy's you belong!
You are lost inside this huge mess
You might as well be in Hong Kong
I could turn the knob to change
The channel if we were way back in the day

Full of slime (Clicker!) I’m such a swine (Clicker!)
Somewhere buried (Clicker!) That’s why I’m harried! (Clicker!)
Of insanity! (Clicker!) I’m on the brink! (Clicker!)
Where’s the remote? (Where’s the remote?)
In the gravy boat? (Where’s the remote?)
Pocket hides the remote! (There’s the remote!)
Oh my God! I’m such a dope! (There’s the remote!)

Funny. And true. I see too much of myself in this song.

You think YOU got problems? Try factoring a four-year-old into the equation! ;^) A seriously good parody, well worthy of 555.

Matthias - When it comes to remotes, most men are "control freaks"! Nicely done. ;D

A simple little slice of life, put a smile on my face, because I ask that question nearly every night. Goofy grammar; "In caddy's you belong" (huh?)

It should be "In the caddy is where you belong" but that doesn't pace right

(Artistry) Very simplistic, but equally enjoyable. With the exception of some weird phrasing to aid pacing (which we are all guity of at times), really solid parody! You had good control over this idea! lol!

A classic idea that you described really well (I particularly liked the "clutter clutter" matching with "mother mother" as well as "Might as well be in Hong Kong"). Overall not bad, I think you did a good job with this one.

That would explain Marvin's fight with his dad in that fateful day.

(Artistry) Could be worse, it could've been in your hand the whole time (I've done that with my phone before). Basic but still funny stuff, 555!
