The Lyrics

get lost! that's something we all hear on a daily basis, right? or is it just me? well anyway, imagine if a song did exactly that! I present to you a parody of what was once considered a lost/mysterious song. from 1982, "Some Die For Money" by obscure band 3D (A Fish In Sea) was previously labelled "For My Murder," until the full version/song title/artist name were finally discovered, this past september! there are many other mystery songs out there, which have yet to be identified! and I may get around to parodying some of them, in the future! (especially if they are correctly identified!) as to this one, it's frankly not among my favorite "mystery tunes," for my love of '80s music, I actually don't care much for Duran Duran, who these guys sound a little too similar to, for my own personal taste. but, I did have the urge to parody this one and my mind turned, of course, to gluttony! (big surprise, right?) anyway, without futher ado...
and in the spirit of gluttony, here's a throwback to my thanksgiving parody from 2013!
please enjoy!
this is cruel (and uncool)
this mythical dinner, I guess I'll say grace
but you can see the sad on my face
starts tonight (jeans are tight!)
I told myself I'd lose weight
wish there was steak on my plate

leafy greens
the main course tonight
take this ham
out of my sight!

Downed That Kale Juice
Like A Winner
Reduce My Caboose
With My Dinner

got no choice (one down, noice!)
it seems like all's going well
but inside, I'm hungry as #3!!
eating dreams (krispy kremes!)
my intent is not to fatten
so, I must still limit my eatin'

(stop! sax time!)

and I drooled (said drool pooled)
when I saw those Walmart donuts
really felt like I could go nuts
on the ground (can be found)
Pringle cans 'cross the room
empty Hershey's wrappers strewn

Diet 10 Days
Can't Go Further
I'd Love To Save Face
But, It's Murder

I Know That Cake
Won't Make Thinner
But, I Shall Have Steak
For My Dinner

Downed That Kale Juice
Like It's Eggnog
But It's No Use
Me Want Hot Dog!
