The Lyrics

This song is a celebration.....of STUPIDITY.... Kids, please do not try this at home... ;-)
There's nothing much to huffin'
Costs nothing much to take
I am rapt in glues and thinners
With a lapsing-gluetly brain
I'm always under weather
No zest, it's shot to hell
Collapsing high - must sniff new
'Cus I'm rapt in glues and thinners
I prize obliquely dopin'
It severs ganglions

It's a drug song
Won't be no renouncin'
Go daft at these potions
Trust I've no qualms
Cells all freezin'
Cranials borrowed time
Sachet of turpentine
Or aerosols and glue

Snout snort vrooom!
Snout snort vrooom!
Snout snort vrooom!

Huffing much could snappen
Tough synapses break
For alternative, spray dinners;
Try stuffing rear intake!
No bong, no more pill piling
Nor smoking more ol' weed
No acididdly drops too
'Cus I'm rapt in glues and thinners
It is enough just to snuff
No flirtin' now with speed

It's my drug song
Good grey matter spoutin'
Should wail over headaches
Just for the thrills
Always sneezin'
Reveal-in' the bad signs
My brain's now got hard times
From craps o' snootly glue
She: Are all the meats wrapped?Me: They seem to be quite attentive, yes.

I know this one's gonna get stuck in my head. I once read somewhere that the best size bag to use for sniffing is a number 5.

To paraphrase Steve McCrosky, looks like i picked a bad week to quit reading parodies! OS does not lend itself well to parody (particularly with the incredibly long version of the video provided here), so the humor that you guys were going for kinda gets lost in the music. Creative, funny rhyming subs, that is certain, but not very accessible...do you get what I am driving at?

Reminded me of that scene in Airplane! and anything that reminds me of Airplane is okay in my book because its one of my favorite movies

(Artistry) While the funny was a bit low here, the fantasically matched lines to the original nearly vowel-for-vowel really makes this parody fantastic. Wasn't expecting that out of a parody about getting high as balls, but whatever. 555!

"I tried snorting superglue -- my nostrils were sealed shut for a month." "You might think that's rubber cement but it'snot." Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week. Amazing wordplay here.

(Artistry) This reminds me of that scene where that guy is on the ceiling in Airpla...um...yeah. What Matthias said. Either way, this is great! Snout snort vrooom...weird line, but I love it!

I don't know, I love random, but I have to admit I was a tad lost in this one.
