The Lyrics

A song for all the inept roommates out there...especially ones that neglect safety when cooking and PERSONAL HYGIENE.
Freeloading with you is my idea of paradise
I don't mind taking up all of your time and your personal life
So why do you care if I listen to Metallica all night?
Hey, you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?

You say I'm a jerk, you've said it since a long time ago
But you won't mind if I dump my beer in your goldfish bowl
Why do you get so mad when I leave your dog out in the cold
No, I'm not immature, so don't tell me I'm killing your soul

This free wine and dining is awesome, I'm going nowhere
The dishes stack up, but I won't pack up, I just don't care
I let the screen door hit your face, when I'm on my way out
And that smell in the yard is my garbage all over the ground

I'd just like to know, I don't get it, why you gotta whine?
Just "cause I leave my laundry on the floor all of the time
It's not a big deal that I burn popcorn late at night
Hey, you seem kind of pissed, but can you put out my kitchen fire?

Hey, you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?
(Well you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?)
Hey, you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?
(Well you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?)
You seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?
(Well you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?)
Oh hey, you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?
(Kind of pissed, can you put out my kitchen fire?)
Well you seem kind of pissed, can you put out my kitch...
My kitchen fire!


Frankly, this song (the original one) drives me up the wall with its rhyme scheme, and my childish mind always reminded me of how "pissed" rhymed with "mist" and "distant." So now it is part of a parody to exorcise this 70's demon from my head! :-)

Sounds like you've met a roommate I had some years ago. Nice job!

I just gave it fives because it's a great version of one of my favourite male vocal performances.
