The Lyrics

Why do birds seem to fly away
whenever you come this way
just like me
they long to be away from you

Why do people fall over and faint
Do you smell nice no you aint
just like me
they're literally sick if you

On the day that you were born
the angels regret what they saw
a walking garbage dump
yeah that was you
so they sprayed air freshener in your hair
but still the smelly stench it was there
what to do

thats why all the folks in town
never ever come around
just like me
they long to run away from you

just like me
they're literally sick if you
as I always say this is only intended as a joke. now Im no wierd al but at least thats a start
