The Lyrics

This is my 600th parody on AmIRight.
( --- instrumental intro --- )

If ... I could write new songs, I would ... alas ...

I lack ori-gi-na-li-ty

I ... stay up late, no sleep, throw mice --- a-round ...

Noth-ing to eat, just more caf-fe-e-e-e-eine---wri-i-i-i-ting stuff for you,
Has left me gleeful, numb, and tired

What ... more could I trash ... there's no verse left to be re-wired ...

Glee ... came upon me with u-ni-i-i-i-ique ... mys-ti-i-ique
You'll see, my dumb jingle's, not too deep

...sometimes...

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Maul slyly sticked it where Qui-Gon breathes and through guts too

All I need is somewhere I can leave...

( --- brief instrumental --- )

Glee ... came upon me with u-ni-i-i-i-ique ... mys-ti-i-ique
I bleep, dirty words to, words like "freak"

...song crimes...

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Wall-eyed flea-bitten ferrets climb trees and in-sult you

All I need is somewhere I can leave...

( --- brief instrumental --- )

...dumb rhymes...

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Haul Bligh screamin' to where that high sea strangles tough dudes

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Bonsai trees in the air flatter me, and chew gum, too

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Scrawl "I breed" on her bare back and see random studs drool

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Collared greens and gruyere-splattered bries render yum-food

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Stalled high-speed kittens wear Cyclops-Jeans and look grunge-cool

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Call policemen's eclairs "fat-thigh-grease" and they'll bust you

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Dali's creepiest hairy-eyed beast can do dove-coos

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Bar-flies need disinfectant I.V.'s and new love-chutes

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Tall guys please 'em up where they might bleed red-blue snuff-goo

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Small guys please 'em when their batteries have enough juice

All I need is somewhere I can leave mangled dumb tunes

Holler "Please undress, Cher!" and you'll see Cher's new pug-boobs

All I need is somewhere...

Congrats and love this line "Nothing to eat, just more caffeine - writing stuff for you, has left me gleeful, numb, and tired"

Johnny, hope you enjoyed writing 600; that will be about 100 more than I'll write.

Congrats on 500, JD. See, great minds do think alike--Hollies, Hollies.

You sure it's just caffeine you're on? :-) This one definitely needs a 60's psychedelic video.
Adagio - October 25, 2005 - Report this comment
Stu's call got me over here. Really good one, Johnny...sorry I don't know the song, but I trust you on the pacing, so 5's.

Hehe, I see you can turn out "obuse" ones, also. It's not really obtuse to me, although I don't know what it means...what you say about mine..."I dig it".

That's the key, Stu, just dig it (if you were really puzzled) Congrats on 600. Johnny.
