The Lyrics

All of my parodies are based on the TV show, Lost. This particular parody is sung by Juliet and is about her disillusionment with Ben, her anguish over all the pregnant Others women dying, and her yearning to return home. It takes place after the Others returned to Otherstown, midway in the third season.
Well we're living here in Otherstown.
Ben's there nosing, all his cameras 'round.
Out at Survivors-camp they're killing time
Finding brainstorms
On how to survive.

Well the mothers fought ev'ry second thus for...
To give birth within these Island shores.
Miss my sister in the U.S., ohhh
I asked Ben, a chance --
Chance I could go.
And we're living here in Otherstown.

But the homesickness is still around
So it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
aaaaaaah aaahhhhh ooooooooh ooooooh ohhhhhhh.

Well we're waiting here in Otherstown
For the Nirvana we never found,
For the promises our leader made,
If we worked hard,
If we all stayed.

All his commendations I can recall,
But they never really helped me at all.
No they never taught me what was real,
Lyons' a joke,
Three years he stealed.
And we're waiting here in Otherstown.

But we've taken science as far as it's bound.
And all the expecting moms pass awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaah.

For getting home there was just one really good shot.
Go take a voyage with the survivors' good Doc'.
Something happened on the way to that place,
Locke blew a waiting submarine awaaaaaaaaaaaaay, oh oh oh.

Well I'm living here in Otherstown.
Ben planned hard to keep this woman 'round.
So I won't be going home todaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy
aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah.

(Guitar Solo)

aaaaaaah aaaaaaah aaaaaaah oh oh oh.

And it's getting very hard to staaaaaaaaaaaaaay.
And we're living here in Otherstown.
Other Lost song parodies can be found at Lost: The Rock Opera. (Although the above song is not yet up on that website yet as of this writing.) I hope to have others (no pun intended) I have authored up on this excellent amiright.com site real soon and will encourage other contributors to LTRO to do likewise. Thanks
