The Lyrics

Joy...

Joy...

Wow indiscreet knowledgeableness
And lots of meet to well done
No grill or oven for cooking
And I can’t blame it on the pun

Chorus
I’m gonna rock out at Eccentric Avenue
I’m gonna be on fire
I’m gonna rock out at Eccentric Avenue
I’m gonna be on fire

Witticistian lackluster
Can’t aFord be driven lately?
I do my part I’m a goat herder
Can’t get food for my kid

Good dog

Chorus

Ho no, ho no, hoe row, so so

chorus

Reference frame Taxonomy
There gonna get me I’m done
My names in multiplication
Can’t Identify Anyone?

Oh no

Chorus

Ouch in the street
Not too discreet
Gosh I am spellbound
In the dark side of clown

Oh chorus

Control delete
Alt brain deplete
Hamburger meat ground
In the lark singing soun

chorus

Woah heya
Rocket in the daytime
Rocket in the night

I thought the title of this was brilliant! However there were a few pacing issues, and I felt that the parody would be easier to read if you repeated the chorus between the verses instead of the word 'chorus' Nevertheless, I liked it anyway so 444

Quite creative answer to Jack Wilson's request hour post, though in honesty I like the other parody you did today better-still top nods for this. . .I may be biased just a little since the other parody was to the song I posted as the daily challenge for Thursday.

Weird.. "Reference frame taxonomy" - WTF did that come from?
Ann Hammond - August 13, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks to both of you as well I have no idea where 'Reference frame taxonomy' came from. I think I was just trying to come up with something that would fill the space. I was searching for another oxymoronish idea but gave up.

"Can’t aFord be driven lately?" and "Control delete /Alt brain deplete" stood out for me. 5s

Eccentric? You said it, sister! As Stu mentioned, you and Adagio may well be related. Odd, but fun. 555
