Song Parodies -> "Away From You"

Original Song Title:

"Close From You"

Original Performer:

The Carpenters

Parody Song Title:

"Away From You"

Parody Written by:

Aussie Bob

The Lyrics

Loosely based on a true story
Why do flies
Suddenly appear
Everytime you are near
Not like me
I want to be
Away from you

Why do birds
Fall out from the sky
Everytime you walk by
Not like me
I want to be
Away from you

On the day you did not bathe
The yobbos got together and decided
To create a "Black Gandalf" true
So you neglected washing your hair
For many years, you stank up the world, with eyes of No.2

That is why all the dogs in town
Follow you all around
Not like me
I want to be
Away from you

On the day you did not bathe
The yobbo's got together and decided
To create a "Black Gandalf" true
So you neglected washing your hair
For many years, you stank up the world, with eyes of No.2

That is why all the dogs in town
Follow you all around
Not like me
I want to be
Away from you

Not like me
I want to be
Away from you
Black Gandalf refers to me mate. Often he doesn't have any showers. Imagine Gandalf from Lord of the Rings but black hair instead and you will have my mate there.
