The Lyrics

This came up in my head one day in study hall, and I wrote it down.
Times are gettin’ hard for me, you should know
I once saw a dog chewing on his bone

He stood up and looked me in the eye
Foam dripped off his mouth, and I knew the reason why

I didn’t know what I really should’ve done
So I just turned around and made it for the run

He caught me in the nick of time
He sank his teeth down deep into my thigh, yeah

Well, it’s the middle of the night, I’m on an open road
I’ve got a fever and feelin’ oh so cold

I’m lookin’ tired, I’m lookin’ kind of beat
The dizziness I have sure knocks me off my feet

I didn’t know if I had a virus or a flu
Until I couldn’t walk straight, that was when I knew

Halfway home in the parking lot
By the look in my eye, I feel tied in a knot

My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe

Oh, man, I’m a mess, gonna die in the street
There’s blood on my thigh, and my face looks beat

Out in the night, I’m walkin’ around
People say I’m spreadin’ this sickness around

I didn’t know how much it would hurt
Until the rabid dog bit me, and it felt like a burn

I got not rhythm, I’m goin’ crazy
Oh, won’t you stop this disease from spreadin’ rapidly?

My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe

It’s not alright!

I didn’t know that I was gonna bite a person
Until I met a man by the name of Billy Wilson

He told me that I’m the crazy one
But look at me later, I’m gonna be gone and done

My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe
My, my, my
I’m once bitten, twice shy, babe

So shy!

Love the OS (particularly the original by Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople), and your parody was good, but not great. Pacing was a bit off, otherwise it was well-done. 4-5-5.

I disagree, Andria. I was foaming at the mouth with laughter. Good job, Mother, and stay away from those pit bulls.
