The Lyrics

DKTOS? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbMYwuAHK_4
The slide is high so I’m holding on
I’m thinkin’ this just isn’t fun
I’m not the kind of kid who is a playground brat
Oh no

It’s not the swings or monkey bars that hurt me bad
No it’s the way I zoom down to my doom below
I’m not the kind of kid who wants to make a splat
Oh no

The slide is high so I’m holding on
I wanna make it to the ground
Safe and sound

I want to fly off like Peter Pan
‘Cause this metal slide gives me leg burns

I’m not the kind of kid who thinks that he’s all that
Oh no

The slide is high so I’m holding on
All of the kids are making fun
Feeling dumb, wanna run

I start repeating “I think I can”
Gotta slide on down ‘cause it’s my turn

I’m not the kind of kid who lands just like a cat
Oh no

The slide is high but I’m heading down
I’m speeding up – oh, hey, it’s done
What a blast, sliding fast

The slide is high – and very long
I never want it to be done

The slide is high – I don’t hold on
I’m sliding free, I’m shouting “whee!”, I’m having fun

Agreed, Rex, good work. "this metal slide gives me leg burns" certainly brought back some painful memories!

Rex - Here's some fives on the slide - this did not leave be board. Blondie parodies are popular this week. You a thunk that maybe someone started a comp on them or something. Nice job sir.

(Artistry) I really couldn't put my finger on what was bothering me about TCOP's parody, then reading yours hit the nail on the head-- that "I'm not the kind of girl" line needed a consistent rhyme and punchline each time, which is what you successfully did here, Rex. We've all been there, I think, great song idea.

(Artistry) Well, this one sure beats my parody of the same OS. Though that always happpens when someone does the same parody as me. Anyways, enough about me. This was great work, Rex. 555 for ou!

Thanks Ag, Lil, and bobpie. I just realized I wrote this parody and followed it with one about White Castle "slyders".
Invisible Boy - December 03, 2008 - Report this comment
I agree with Agri. You spotted the "that" motif.
This may have it's ups and downs but I still liked it.

(Artistry) That was just so cute. . .LilCougar--growl. . .anyway This parody got a few chuckles and matched yet another aspect of TOS, it's playfullness. This flowed so well Rex, Even when you don't go for the jugular--you pull out some strong stuff.
