The Lyrics

Sometimes a horrible just comes right the fuck outta nowhere and you know you just gotta get the hell outta dodge before it gets worse. This is about one such time.
I don't know what that smell is, but I do know that it stinks
I don't know just what it is, but I can't stay, gotta split
Did it come straight from Satan, the deep bowels of his arse
I'll tell you what is certain, I really need to leave fast


I need a breath of fresh air, did something die?
My room is filled with bad air, it makes me cry
It was okay this morning, I don't know
But now something just smells like shite, gotta go, gotta go

That smell just came from nowhere, gave me a fright
When my nose smelled that bad air, curled up like fries
I cannot stand it, must go far, don't care where
Before my eyes just melt outright, don't care where, I'll go there

It just came out of nowhere
Yuck! Yuck!
Need to escape that bad air
Yuck! Yuck!
I need a breath of fresh air
Yuck! Yuck! Ewww

Man, that smell is gettin' ripe, bringin' tears forth from my eyes
I got to fly, buddy, got to fly
Somewhere very far away, like outside the Milky Way
Said I got to fly, buddy, got to fly
In my car, driving along, yet the smell is still so strong
I got to fly, buddy, got to fly
Seems no matter where I move, there's a strong whiff of doo-doo
I tried to fly, buddy, tried to fly

I've a theory in my mind, how the smell don't want to die
It makes me cry, said it makes me cry
What this theory has to say, it may make you turn away
I don't want that, right? I don't want that, right?
I went all the way to Honk Kong, and the damn smell came along
And that's not right, buddy, that's not right
Now I'll share my thoughts with you, since that seems the nice thing to do
So I'll tell you why, though it makes me cry

It just came out of nowhere
Need to escape that bad air
I need a breath of fresh air
Yuck! Yuck!
Because I made that bad air

That parody stinks, but in a good way.

I agree with Porfle, in full critique here. Ordinarily such a stretched out thin concept would bug me, but this was pretty hilarious, matched the OS tone IMHO.

Thankfully this was just about a mysterious odor and not farting because you know how much I hate farting!

Ok, first off, reading this made me conjure up the melody in my head. This is a good thing, because the original is such a fantastic song. When it started, I was fully ready to dismiss it because I know the length of the tune and this surely could not stretch the joke that far. I was wrong, though. The fact that you made it thru without using the words fart, toot, or poot gets you bonus points. That extra credit made up for the use of the word doo-doo. J/k. Good job!

(SOTM) Agreed, it's a "Breath of Fresh Air" that this wasn't just one bug fart joke. I'm glad you used other odors because I'm not a fart joke person. This was pretty good, good write TCOP, good write.

Hmm...from the looks of things, it seems I am the only one that appreciates potty humor haha, nice work here!

(Artistry) Ewww...what's that horrid smell? Did something crawl up in the room and die? Or was it a skunk who got hit by a car...Ew, phewy! (Waves hand to ward off stench!) This smells worse than an isolation room in a prison cell! I guess you never promised a rose garden, eh? LOL! But this reeks of laughter and great writing. Spraying 555 air fresheners for this one!

(Artistry) Good job squeezing this one out. I do think that it would be even funnier if you just made the smell generic and left out the doo doo and s***e references, but that's just my humble opinion. Fine writing and pacing.

I don't know, I found it funny with the references made, but then again I understand that when someone rips in public, childish or not, most people laugh. . .its a fact, Abbott you are not alone. . .
Blaydeman - November 21, 2011 - Report this comment
(Artistry) See Above^^^ That is true Dave, most people do laugh, but for some reason I have never found those jokes funny. I respect others' rights to say them, but it won't get a laugh outta me.

(SOTM) I love the smell of stench in the morning!
