The Lyrics

Wonder why I won't take me a stand?
Wonder why I'm so spaced-out and bland?
If you say I don't care why
You're right on, I'm an apathetic guy

Sure enough, I'm an apathetic guy (apathetic guy)
Don't ever wanna know reasons why (reasons why)
Wonder why I won't say no or yes?
I don't care - go away - let me rest

Prepare yourself - I'm boring as dust - got a manic yen for cheeses
So you know that when I sigh - I'm tryin' to remind you, I'm an apathetic guy

Tryin' to remind you I'm an apathetic guy (apathetic guy)
That's what you're gonna know when I sigh (when I sigh)
When a fried Frito-Lay chip plays chess
It's gonna blow me away, checkmate, yes!

I'm a double-chinner, I'm double-chinned
I got a yen for cheeses
Yes I know my weight is high
But that don't mess me up, I'm an apathetic guy

That don't mess me up, I'm an apathetic guy (apathetic guy)
That's where my supper goes, to my thighs (to my thighs)
To my thighs go cheeses I ingest
They're gonna go to the place that's fattest
Go to the place that's fattest

I know you're not writing about yourself. There's no apathy in your parody production. Rhyming Cheeses with Jesus on Good Friday, hmmmm, not sure if that's a good idea but have to give you 5's anyway.

I'm ignoring you. I don't care to comment. Give yourself whatever vote you want. \O/

I'll get back to you on this, maybe. In the meantime, 5's.

DRTOS well enough to vote, but again is see that HTTP end-0.shtml, telling me this is the first parody of this song and band ( of the decade anyway ). So if that is the case, extra credit for doing a first. :)
