The Lyrics

Pout Pout, whine and then shout
You'll never know what I'm all about
Listen, I'm bi*ching to you, Listen

Spout, Spout, I'm filled with doubt
Sometimes I wish I could bail out
Whining, cause I'm out of cheese, whining

I hate my life
Cause ev'rything's out of control
I'm filled with strife
I've never really had a goal
Gas is too high
So high that I'm beyond annoyed
My clothes got tight
There isn't much that I enjoy
There isn't much that I enjoy

Pout, Pout, laying about
Happy feelings I can do without
Moan on, I'm crying to you, moan on

I hate my life
and I have got no soul to sell
I prefer night
Stock up blue hair gel that's on sale
Stock up blue hair gel that's on sale

Pout Pout, What I'm about
Sunshine and Laughs I can do without
Scream on, 'til the day is through, Scream on

Pout Pout, pimples break out
Don't really care since I'm just a louse
lay down, Until my pains through, lay down

(80's style musical interlude)

Pout Pout, Eyes have a drought
That's cause my eyes have some tearing bouts
Red eyes, they keep burning on, red eyes

My inner brain's totally scarred
You could never change my mind
I'm living with a broken heart
I'm living with a broken heart

Pout, Shout, Scream all about
I'm sick and tired of blowing my snout (Break my heart)
(I don't mind if you break my heart)
Whine on, I'm crying to you, Whine on

Pout Pout, I'm short and I'm stout
If you can't see that you are a lout
Come on, You know that it's true, so come on

(Guitar solo)

Pout, Pout, I'll drown you out
Listen to me as I whine and shout
Move On, now that I can't do, move on

(I really really hate life bro)
Pout, Pout, I'm fading out
(I really really hate life bro)
That's cause my life you can do without
(They really really)
Come on, Like Eiffel I'm blue, come on
(I really really hate life bro)

This one was okay... As you said before it looked a tad rushed but this song was really tough and I couldn't complete it so I gotta give you props for at least getting it done.

I hated, hated, HATED the OS when I was in high school (yes, it was new then, I'm that old), and yet this fits, because TFF looked like a couple of whiners and pouters, so this parody fits very well. Speaking of which, I hope Arwen gives this a 5.

Good job, Dave. And...there's much more to work with here than with "Shout" by the Isley Brothers. ;D
TFF 1990 - August 31, 2010 - Report this comment
The OS is about all the BS we've had for the past 15 - 20 years or so. Recession, exploitation, corruption, wasteful and unnecessary war, etc. - who spoke up against all this crap? Hardly a soul. That's what TFF are saying: you gotta SHOUT cuz all this BS we can do without. I'm talking 2 U so come on. This parody "Pout" is great too - it's perfect for all those yuppies and pop tart diva types. Paris Hilton - you can just POUT!

Thank you Matty, Michael, OMR and TFF 1990, love your insight on the song and agree with it whole heartedly

535. Is it just my impression or have you been writing more and more songs like this lately? I'm not on here every day, sometimes not even every week now, so I might be wrong, but if not you need to cheer yourself up by... hmm... taking some broken-heart ballad and turn it into when-I-smile-the-whole-world-smiles-with-me type of parody... or something like that. Then again, that's harder than it sounds, been on my to-do list for years (for reasons I'm well over) but I still haven't found the right OS, now I'm getting depressed just by thinking about it... ;-)

I don't know, this is the second one in two weeks I can think of, I've written about ten parodies in that time so it represents 20% of my parodies. . .in both cases it was playing on TOS though I have been depressed, but that has more to do with trying to get things done with the website which involves getting certain parodies done, and I wish Artistry would slow down, but its like a train--nothing stops it really
Peter Andersson - September 02, 2010 - Report this comment
Sorry about that then Dave, maybe it's just this OS that invites this type of mood, come to think about it I've done it myself, early on, in Swedish, with a parody appropriately titled (translated) "Tired", go figure... :-)

This song certainly doesn't make this Wild Child pout!! :-) :-) :-) :-) 555!

(Artistry) no pouts, but SHOUTS...of fives..
Agrimorfee - September 09, 2010 - Report this comment
This is one of my favorite songs of all time...and I never once have done a parody of it just because it is so minimal, it's hard to do something funny with it. You did the best you could with this song, I think.

(Artistry 80) This goes very well with my "So Annoyed" parody. I hate the fact that every time I'm so upset that no one listens to me and understands me. I can relate to your situation as well. Loved this OS as a kid and found your parody hilarious, especially the "Like Eiffel, I'm Blue" line! Now it's time to turn 555 pouts upside down!

(Artistry) A new emo anthem! Nice job with a tough song to parody.
bobpiecheese - September 12, 2010 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Awesomely emo-tastic! If you record this, it would sound perfect if you did an Alan Rickman impression, cause this song would be perfect for Marvin the Paranoid Android (voiced by AR in the recent film). 555!
