The Lyrics

You may want to read this on an empty stomach....
My, my, my...
See what's become of me....


I'm I'm I'm
Lacking in currency
So I search for chow
On sofa upholstery:
Breadcrumbs or week-old cheese

Look around
Nothing found
Looks like I'm
Having gravy stains for dinner

Not much nu-tritious close at hand
Lint-covered apple pie
Some french fries, nearly petrified
And covered with sand
Tomorrow's breakfast is planned

If it's brown,
Suck it down
I won't die
Eating gravy stains for dinner

Controlling my gag reflex
Ev'ry other Saturday
An Arby's garbage can buffet:
Better than sex!
Shoo 'way the flies; see what's next...

Dropped-on ground
Pizza slice
Looks alright
If it's lunchtime, take a bite!

Spare some change; stop me pestering
Out in front of the Burger King
Three years since my last on-ion ring...

Frying mounds
Of ground round
Get me high
But it's gravy stains for dinner

Looking down,
I say "WOW!"
Bag of Oreos on the ground

Feral hounds
Chase me round
Coz they want the bone that I found

Don't know how
But I vow
To hook up with Ronald the clown...

I wish I could have written something like this for The Bangles round... Simply because my entry bombed... Oh well... This was still pretty outstanding, and a kick-ass original song.

Thanks to Jack, JD, Stan, Al, JAB, Matty and a special thanks to DAve for reminding me of this brill version of the original, and thus indirectly inspiring this. I wish I had thought of this for the Bangles comp as well, Matty...oh well, cest la vie! Off to the back of Dunkin Donuts for a midnight snack now...;-)

I ran out of money before I ran out of month. I'm standing at a busy intersection with a sign that says "Will write parody for food". Al Y. drove by and yelled "Beat it". Sheesh I can't win around here.

I haven't heard this song in so long that it was out of my memory until I saw this parody. It came back in a flash - must be how well it is written. Well done Mr. Kristof!
