Parody Song Title:

"Easily Distractable"

Parody Written by:

Kristof Robertson

The Lyrics

A song about a guy who's the polar opposite to Stuart McArthur's Very Very Sensible gentleman...
My mem-ry's unreliable
My concentration's pliable... yeah, yeah
When "things to do" are multiple
There's only one result..iple

Well, I'll flitter about like a wasp or a .. trout (?)
I'll be driving my car, wondrin' why I went out
I can't connect A to B, because I'm really..

Easily distractable

Easily distract..ab..hey, that's a nice shirt!

My conversation's laughable (hah!)
My train of thought is crashable
I'm quite un-understandable
The capitalofturkey's Istanbul!

There's a Rain Man in me; do I have A.D.D?
Checking my diary, but it's from '93
I'll get there eventually, but please accept I'm...

Easily distractable

Easil...easi...easy like sunday mornin', yeah-eah! That's why I'm
Easily distractable

(Easily trisdactable)
Fish have spines, and Great Britain's got a parliament
(Quizzicly distractable)
What's the time? Holy s***, I gotta go!

It's unavoidable; I've got to take that call
But out the window, there's some kiddies playing ball
Could you repeat that? Coz I didn't get it all
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
Yes sir, I'm on it!

Easily distractable

Geez Louise; distractable

(Easily dist...)
Cheese and wine go together...where's that document?
(Easil...)
Knees are fine; jets are fast and worms are slow

This song is long and terrible
It's now become unbearable....zzzzzzzzzzzzz
To finish, I don't care at all
I wonder what's in Geritol?

Nearly done, praise the lord! Coz I'm well beyond bored
Should I get a reward, or just fall on my sword?
Attention span of a flea...who's got dementia

Busily distractable

Dizzily distractable

(Yada yada-tractable)
I count nine; can't be bothered going up to ten
(Easily dis-tractor-pull)
(I) queue in lines for one minute, but no more
(Is a bee destructable?)
TV time: re-mote's got flat batteries again
(Easily distractable)
Fish have spines; did I tell you that before?

Easily distractable!

[Can I have ice cream now?]

Note: the pacing blips in this parody are DELIBERATE!

Since I actually do have A.D.D I can totally relate. I'm not this bad mind you, but I - Hey! It's Raining!

Good job. I think I'll give it a five. All I have to do is push this... Ooh! Arwen made cake! I'll be right back...

Great job, Kristof! This one made my morning. I'm like that too, especially when it comes to web surfing. In fact, I was looking up something on home reapair when I found this place. Hey, did you know that the concrete in the Hoover Dam won't be fully cured for another 500 years?

Well, I think it's very funny. . .sent me all over the place. I do not have A.D.D., but it helped me to understand those that do a lot better. So it seems A.D.D. assists in great parody writing. . .hmmm. ..top nods from me.

Being self critical is always a good humor ploy...(Hmm, sounds like ice cream), anyway, this is no exception..and a great job

Information overload?

Proof that a wandering mind IS good for something. Fav lines: "un-understandable" and Geritol.

Ha! When I saw the title I thought wow! there's a great blank canvas! then, sure enough you've gone and Jackson Pollacked all over it in your brilliant style - my faves were Rex'x faves above - and all these comments about it being autobiographical I think might be a bit off-the-mark, aren't they Kristof - it was just an angle to make it all the funnier I would have thought - 555

Many thanks to Matty, Phil, Jack, Jonathan, alvin, Mike, Shawna, Dave, AFW, Eagle, Rex, and of course, Stu.
This was a heap of fun to do...but it'll only really make sense pacing-wise once (if) I record it. It is autobiographical to an extent- I do tend to flit from one thing to another. I'm glad no-one saw it as a slur on people with ADD; it really IS more about my brain than anyone elses. Once again; cheers all!

p.s. I remembered after posting this that the capital of Turkey is actually Ankara...d'oh!

Exelent!. I am easily distracted and with my brain tumor must take the extra time and keep extra focased in what I'm doing.

Very funny Mr K! I hope you aren't easily distracted!

Oddly enough, I didn't get distracted at all with the pacing. TMGLTM, and yes, you need to record this. 55.. hmm, the wife is putting on lingerie - bye! =)
