The Lyrics

We’ve had enough! The time has come to close the book.
Gone is the day of give and give.
Things are gonna be changing; leeches get no givin’;
if they’re riven, bye-bye!
Say live? Let ’em die!
Live?! Let ’em die.

They matter nothing to us;
the time is way overdue.
If they can’t stay well,
let ’em perish; death knells swell—what the hell?

You’re gonna pay for a phone, kid?
Think on it, kid. Best ditch it kid! Put on a lid.
Money to them is wasted. Curl up, mooches, give in!
Get sick? Then, bye-bye!
They, live?! Let ’em die!!
Give in and die!!

Your lyrics don't match. Are you cheating to pad your numbers? Seems like lots of your newer works are cut short on purpose. See link below for these lyrics

Just did a sanity check and listened to the tune. My lyrics in fact do match. I dropped a couple of the superfluous "Live and Let Die"s at the end of verses 1 and 2.

Oops, you're partly right. I didn't intentionally shorten the "You gotta give the other fella hell line," I simply F'd up and miscounted. Sorry. As to the endless repetition found in pop songs such as this, unless I'm varying, here, e.g., the four "Live and let die lines," I see no point in typing the same thing four times...adds nothing of substance to the parody.

But you also tried to rip-off Max Power with the Zest commercial thing and submitted fragments too. Now you try to feverishly write shortened crap just to prove you're back, I suppose. People are tired of your dead language flops and your old pals are mostly gone. No auto 5's anymore. If your audience can't understand it or it sucks you get normal ratings now. Live with it.

I don't recall this level of nasty comments (see above) just a couple of years ago. Are we being coarsened and emboldened by Internet anonymity? Trump? I miss helpful gentlemen and women like Lifeliver, Wendy, OMR, AFW, etc. Can we all get along? And can we reduce the political ideology and sharpen our wit, and do better tracking of OS rhythm? Or are we just jerking ourselves off?

Sorry Reverend, but this guy only cares about numbers.

Living with it I am Sees. But you're outta luck, MF, because, as you note, I'm back. So live with that. Only rarely do i respond to reactionary trolls...will try to make this it for 2017. Thanks for the sane counterpoint to Sees, Rev.

John Barry, crawl back under your rock. Please.

^ "Resident"? You mean "inmate." And the rule here is that you now must reveal who you are and show your Author Page to Rob Arndt. Maybe also your 1040 for 2005, or possibly I'm watching too much cable news.

Where is Tommy Turtle when we need him? And speaking of MIA, has anyone heard from Leough?
