The Lyrics

I'm just a tornado, and everywhere I blow
People are gonna start prayin'
I will make a big splash
Making things crash
Oooh, that's what I'm sayin'
But there will come a day
My winds will blow away--whoosh!
What will they say about me?
When that time comes, I know I won't be a tornado
Life goes on without me

I'm just a tornado (tornado)
And everywhere I blow (where I blow)
People hate the things I'm breakin'
The trailer park is gone, by the crack of dawn
Ohh, that's what I'm playin'
And when I come today, the surfers will run away--whooosh!
What will they say about me?
When the end comes I know I won't be a tornado
Life goes on without me
'Cause--

I won't have velocity!
Velocity, velocity--please all you people, don't take a chance with me
You won't like me mad
Ahhhhhh, ain't it a pity!
Velocity, velocity, I'm blowin through your town, people
Now don't get me mad

I cause destruction---alllll of the time
Even on the beach, even on the beach--
Bop-bozy-bozy-bop--diddy bop!

I still have velocity!
Blow through the city, blow through the city
Hey there sweet mama, don't take a chance with me
My wind speed is rad! (horn/sax solo)

Down to the very last, down to the very last, down to the very last drop!
I still have velocity!
Blow through the city, blow through the city
Hey there sweet mama, don't take a chance with me
My wind speed is rad!

I will cause destruction---allllll of the time
Even on the beach, even on the beach
I will--visit--your city--soon--baby!
'Cause I got velocity!
I know--I'll be in

Florida! (Florida!) Nebraska! (Nebraska!) Oklahoma! (Oklahoma!)
Minnesota (Minnesota!) Illinois! (Illinois!)

'Cause I got velocity!

Tornadoes suck, and tornadoes blow, but this parody does neither !

Read this today; great job.

(ABC/J) Great concept, well done.

(ABC05) Interesting reading this after Stu's on the way it is formatted. Some differences obviously but they are both well done as far as I can remember TOS. I take it a tornado would sing this, which is hilarious.

This blows and doesn't blow at the same time.

(ABC) I second the great concept. Nice one!

(ABC) See above!

(J) - Yes, yours and mine are quite different in layout, aren't they Agri - it's interesting to see the different decisions we all make - and I really liked "Down to the very last, down to the very last, down to the very last drop!" - 555

(ABC05) Nicely done, Agri. Funny how yours and Stu's ended up next to each other. I think the subject of your parody is probably what the subject of Stu's parody had in his mind all the time. 555

...I thought this OS seemed a bit familiar. You should perform this live, trashing the stage as you go. :)
Agrimorfee - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Matter of fact, Luke, I did perform this live, a capella. I didn't trash the stage, but did throw in a little improvised soft-shuffle in the final chords to thunderous applause (if claps of 5 people in a cafe constitutes thunderous).
Jeff Reuben - August 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Ah...Capella. Well done, I've always wanted to follow one of those things around.

An interesting twist on the same DLR song I've just looked at...
