The Lyrics

This parody is not meant to be funny, it is meant to be serious. I am using it to bring attention to all the severely autistic kids out there.
(Pan in on child in room)

Well, you're locked all up and you have nothing to do,
And the normal kids are at school.
You stare at your hands for hours on end, cause you see light on the tips.
Then you sit and lie down for hours on end, because you are afraid to use the loo.....

Bad Retardation, a way of feeling!
Bad Autism a way of thinking!

Well you take apart a flashlight, and you notice a battery maybe two.
You then realise that this is the magic bullet that can bring your things to life.
So, you remove all of them from every thing so that the power is inside you!

Bad Retardation, a way of feeling!
Bad Autism a way of thinking!

So you walk in the room the TV's on, and you wonder what's going on.
Then your father turns it off, and the color's gone and gone with it is the noise.
You put your hands against the screen and rejoice in the staticky noise you hear.

Bad Retardation a way of feeling!
Bad Autism a way of thinkiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!

(Pan out of the room and fade).

The other day I thought of doing one on retardation, but thought it would be too mean. But since yours isn't meant to be funny, I guess it's not... I DKTOS, so I can't vote
