The Lyrics

These all REALLY happened, the ones where no dated are mentioned happened in 2001,2002,2003 respectively
It was the fourteenth of that May
Was after school of that day, yes it was
Babysitter and I went to the mall , she
Went to get some new shoes
Got bored and looked right behind me
At Dillard’s where we were I saw some red shoes

They were female, hey, I’m crazy
So I went and put those red shoes on
Before that took tennis shoes off
Put them on, then walked around a bit
Babysitter told me to take off
The red shoes, cause she was done
I took them off, yes they fit me, yeah

Well, well.

As we were leavin’ here’s what she said
Whispered in my ears that they weren’t
For trying on at all, they were a customers
Actually that lady saw me before I knew and everyone laughed
And yeah that’s right
Almost everyone knows that story by now
Ive told it more times than Ive seen a cow.
This next one takes place in Feb, of 2000

Was walkin’ to the science room
With the rest of my fifth grade class
Apparently my pants were loose
Cause they all the way to tennis shoes
Everyone laughed, cause it was funny
Teacher asked what was going on
And some girl then said that “Jack’s pants be down”

Uh!

In Florida, at a restraunt my parents and I were for lunch
We had the menus from where we would order food
A funny named item was there, that’s a type of mushroom
Start laughin’, cause it’s spelt like “shit-take” ,didn’t know that
It was actually pronounced shuh-tah-kee
That appeared in Austin Powers 3

Last one is also in Florida, I was alone, yay
My movie wouldn’t play (Well, well, well, well)
Call the restraunt my parents were at
(And after awhile) Got called ma’am on the phone
Got called Ma’am right on the phone
My movie worked when I called their phone
(I got called M’am) Over restraunt telephone

They’e em-
Barrassing as hell I know
Got called young lady once in the hall
(By teacher guy) when freshman in high school

CRAP,typo in the title

I'm sorry Jack, but I have tried reading this along to 2 Youtube videos (one with a live performance, one with the OS album version) and I cannot make head or tail out of the pacing after the first line. Are you sure this is the correct song? I sympathize with your plights, and I hope this submission won't need to be added to your list of embarrassments! (???)

Yeah, its the right song, copy and pasted on Word from a lyrics site.

Best advice: Stay out of Florida.... oh, and if you had kept the ruby slippers on, the bad witch couldn't have hurt you. DKTOS, so no clue on pacing. but Five for funny tales.

LOL only problem is , where that was in Flroida, we're moved there now! Thanks

The pacing was a bit scrappy, but I could just about follow the OS. Nice idea, Jack, not quite executed. I think you may have strayed too far from the OS for this to hang together. 444

Jack - my young friend, what can I say? It's Halloween and your parody has a costume on since we all can't tell what it is. I'm gonna give you 5 treats and no tricks just for having the best costume parody on the site today. Tomorrow is a new day. This too will pass.

It didn't really flow properly to the original song, but it was still pretty funny.
bobpiecheese - November 11, 2007 - Report this comment
(Decathlon 2.0) The overall flow of the story could've been tighter. Still funny.
stuart mcarthur - November 12, 2007 - Report this comment
(dec2.3) great idea to choose 3 personally embarrassing moments, and they were good ones, but I too had trouble getting the impact of all the laughs because of the tricky pacing
Kristof Robertson - November 12, 2007 - Report this comment
(DEC2.3) See above. If this had been a little tighter, Jack, it would have been a real treat
Arwen - November 12, 2007 - Report this comment
Decathlon...Oh wow...I didn't think anyone ELSE could compile a list like this...; )

I had some problems with pacing, too...but this was a great idea!
Phil Alexander - November 13, 2007 - Report this comment
I've asked what "s**t-ache" mushrooms were, too :) Unfortunately, the story did get in the way of pacing - this song has a very definite phrasing that you need to try get the way you use your words to match. I know it's kind of difficult, but it's worth the effort when it works.

Yikes...rough few years =) Were the shoes heels or flats? Nice job

Kristof: Alright,thanks! Guy: LOL, I knew it probably wouldnt pace well, yup it's got a costume, cause my Halloween parody was going to be a Who parody but I ran out of time Matthias,bobpie: Thanks Stu: There were actually 5, just 3 main ones I mentioned. Kristof again : Ok! Arwen : LOL and thanks! Phil: Glad Im not the only one thanks! Jeff: Flats, and they fit.

(Dec2) Well, it's inclusive.

DEC2- I'm sorry to sound repetitive Jack, but I, too had a hard time following this one. But it was funny and kudos for using (three!) personal experiences.
