The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Walked into the place lily white
But I get darker underneath the lights
As I absorb UV-A and UV-B
I'm really gonna be a sight for everyone to see

Attendant comes around, checks on my skin
And says to me, "wait 'til I come back again"
So I'm just lying here 'til I hear them say
"Okay your time is up so let's stop tanning, that's all for today"

But you know I'm still tanning even though I think it's been
More than my alloted hour, can I get some lanolin
And I'm still tanning after all this time
Thinking if I stay here too much longer I'll be country fried
I'm still tanning (yeah yeah yeah)
I'm still tanning (yeah yeah yeah)

Waitin' for the word that I'm done
I'm feelin' like I'm stuck in a flaming sun
I wish they'd come and turn the power down
'Cause if I'm in here too much longer I'll be beyond just brown

And I'm still tanning, even though to my chagrin
I believe I've started smoking, running out of melanin
And I'm still tanning after all this time
Hoping that the boils popping up on me will be benign
I'm still tanning (yeah yeah yeah)
I'm still tanning (yeah yeah yeah)

Don't you know that I'm still tanning, situation's getting grim
I can hear my body sizzle, better call my next of kin
And I'm still tanning after all this time
Think that they forgot I'm in this booth and left at closing time

I'm still tanning (tan tan tan)
Now I'm burning (burn burn burn)
Now I'm baking (bake bake bake)
Now I'm charring (char char char)
I'm on fire (flame flame flame)
I'm still tanning

This parody reminded me of Final Destination when the two slutty chicks get trapped in the tanning booths because something heavy falls down on them and locks them in... And they burst into flames. It was like that only through a more comical sense.

(Artistry) Great job, very funny, and with how light my skin is, there's no way I can get a tan without severely sunburning/lightburning myself and ending up with my skin peeling off in sheets.

So, after all that time in the tanning salon, what shade of orange are you now? Funny stuff.

I loved the symmetry of the rhyme scheme in both choruses ("lanolin"/"melanin"). Highly original and funny idea.

LOL I did Im Still Tanning to this OS too, but this is different, and still awesome, 5s

(Artistry) Jeez, what the hell was the attendant doing that prevented him from coming back in time to stop Mr. Tanning-Guy from somehow being set on fire? If it wasn't saving the world, he needs to be shot. Or set on fire. Or both. 555!

This is, probably, my second favorite Elton John song next to Your Song. Fun song to hum to, and you kept that spirit with your parody. As Elton John songs go, this one is actually one of the difficult ones in his collection, and you really hit it out the park, so far for me, it's between you and Jeff for the top spot, AWESOME PARODY REX!!!!!!!
