Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This was originally submitted for the costume party...but I wanted to throw it down under my own name so it'll be easy to find if I ever need it...
If you see me falling to the floor
Run along, don't point at me no more
On bright days or on darkest nights
I fall a lot--my balance isn't right
I prefer not to break a bone
To avoid--paid health care in my home
Pre-mi--ums will soar sky high
Not insured--around a Slip 'n Slide

'Cause I'm clumsy--Ow! Just so clumsy--Ow!
Just hit a tree, now! 'Cause I'm clumsy--Ow!

I don't play golf, but often yell 'Fore!'
So its safe--when I open the door
Frisbee time, but I can't play
Ankle twist--in bed I'll have to stay
Done lots of harm, mostly to myself
But don't stand close, I can't guarantee your health
You see, I once maimed a childhood friend
She's still mad--her arm didn't mend

'Cause I'm clumsy--Ow! Just so clumsy--Ow!
Steer clear of me, now! 'Cause I'm clumsy--Ow!

I had some skates, but mom threw them away
I broke my whole body
And in the future psychics do see
Days filled with injury

Yeah!

---Instrumental---

(Who-oo-oo)
'Cause I'm clumsy--Ow! Really clumsy--Ow!
Warned not to ski, now! 'Cause I'm clumsy--Ow!

(Ahhhhh... oh no!)
I'm so clumsy--ow!

(Ahhhhh... cr-ash!)
Hard granite...hurts can't it?

(Ahhhhh... oh no!)
I'm so clumsy--ow!

(Ahhhhhh crash, boom, bang--waah waah waah...)

I KNEW this was yours! I tried and tested subject for miss Arwen, her lack of a centre of gravity!! Well done, babe! 555

I am rolling on the floor laughing so hard that my sides ache! I believe that this is one of your best! 5's all the way! :)

We must be on the same wavelength today =) I have to agree with Cookie-monster, this is one of your best!

Arwen - This one is just so unmistakeable yours. I wasn't in the costume contest since I was traveling at the time and did not have Internet access for much of the time. Did anybody NOT figure out it was you? Good job, didn't stumble in your writing at all. 5's...

bummer about those psychics, Arwen, and I agree, those frisbees ARE really bad for the ankles - I'm with Paul - did anyone NOT guess this was yours? - it was just a laugh a second - 555

Kristof...yeah, I really didn't think I was going to fool anyone...although I had hoped it would be due to my brilliant as usual lyrical stylings, dammit! ; ) Thanks!

Cookie...thanks, buddy! Careful you don't hurt yourself!

Jeff...Thanks! I loved your parody today as well...of all the possibilities, I'm cool with being on the same wavelength with you!

Paul...thanks a ton!!

Johnny...oh stop! Seriously...get up! Thanks!

Stuart...thanks a bunch. I'm glad to know that someone agrees with me on the dangers of Ultimate Frisbee!!

Nothing clumsy about this parody. Very deft, in fact.
Serafina - November 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, there's nothing clumsy about it...but it's really funny!
Arwen - November 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks a lot, John & Serafina!!

Refrain is a bit of a stretch, but how can you not like "Done lots of harm, mostly to myself". Nice par-o-dy now.
Arwen - November 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, 2nzy...=)

Wowza babe! This is just smashing! And refrain shefrain - it's perfect!
Adam Eccleshall - November 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Funny stuff, Arwen. Perhaps, in an effort to minimise on self-damage potential, you should just sit in with Aragorn all day?
Arwen - November 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Emi...it's been a while...I'm not sure we're speaking the same language...but my instincts tell me to thank you none the less...=)

Mr. Brattoni...thanks, buddy!

Ash...you know, I think it's perfect, too...but I have been known to be biased...thanks, babydoll!!

Adam...you know you're right. But the guy's always out fighting evil and stuff...and then I get into mischief...; ) Thanks!!!

Hee hee - yours was the only one of the Who Can it Be batch that I guess right.... must have been something about the theme... ;-D

=), Merry! I know...I'm a bit predictable!

I'm glad you hurt yourself. So you could write this from yore pain. But you didn't hurt your funnies bone. Oviously. This is very happy. I hope more pain will make you even more happy so you can give us more happy stuff like this. Biotch.

Olaf...I am a sucker for an accent. I totally want to get to know you better. Bastard.

I agree with 2nz about the "mostly to myself" line. I would have commented on this earlier but I tripped on the mouse cord and broke my whole body.
Arwen - November 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh great...NOW you tell me. You'll just have to disregard that "you are a bastard for never visiting my parody...and don't give me any lines about tripping over computer cords!" card that I sent your way. Thanks...
