The Lyrics

It was an early morning yesterday
I woke up with a yawn
So confused as how to live
But I must be moving on
Like a king without a castle
Like a queen without a throne
I'm an early morning riser
And I must be moving on
Now I believe that what mom says
has very little truth
Now I have to have things my own way
To keep me in my youth
Like a ship without an anchor
Like a slave without a chain
The thought stayin here with you
Is driving me insane
And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

Goodbye mother
it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true
Goodbye daddy, brothers too
Hope Ill still get to see you
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Now some they stay and some they go
And some you just can't tell
And some that think their parents house
has become an earthly hell
You can laugh at my behavior
That'll never bother me
Say the devil is my savior
But I don't pay no heed
And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

Hey Ann, did you know these songs may have been written by Rodger Hodgson, but they were performed by his former band Supertramp? And did you know that a good parody involves changing more than one word of the original...sometimes at least 5?

I have the Supertarmp Breakfast In America CD and did a parody on that song already. Because I Don't know people from these times I do reasearch before submitting. When I write my parodies I am driven by my Heart And Soul (Jan & Dean). I don't know anything.
