The Lyrics

Stepped in the wrong place
Now danger I face
I've seen this happen in the movies

I let out a scream
I never dreamed
This would ever happen to me
No, no, no, no, no

Wet ground
I'm sinking down
It looks like death by quicksand

Waving both my hands
I yell across the land
Looks like nobody
Is coming to my rescue

And now my time is near
There's sand in both my ears
Seconds remaining
The fate that I've progressed too

Death by quicksand
You know it's death by quicksand
Death by quicksand, oh no
Death by quicksand

And I'm sinking!

That's where I got the title from, yeah. Good thing I remembered the scene, because I couldn't think of a title at first. Thanks for the fives.

I enjoyed this very much. Was gonna say something about the song lasting longer than it takes to sink into quicksand, but sinking into quicksand really is a slow thing. Good job with an already great song.

I don't know the original, but it was a good read.

Thanks guys. 2nz - I considered stepping into quicksand and writing the parody as I sank to determine which would take longer, but I couldn't find any quicksand.
