The Lyrics

What can I say...I'm driving in my car on my way home from work. This is on the oldies station, and BLAMMO! Inspiration strikes. Enjoy this twisted tale...
Hey

Katey, Katey, what have you turned to?
You’re needin’ somethin' you can hold on to
I know you’re sick of crack, tried drinkin’ before
Now you’re insane, no wonder you’re lookin’ for more

Katey, you must do something
I think you’re way too high
Katey, you must do something…
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

Katey, Katey, you're looking happy
Oh they don't know you, but your life if so crappy.
You tried to quit it before, but you lost your nerve
You tried crystal methamphetamines, but they didn’t work

Katey, you must do something
I think that you may die
Katey, you gotta do something
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)


You get it, You get, You get it?
’Cause quittin’s what you gotta do
You get it, You get, You get it?
’Cause it’s worse than, ‘cause it’s worse than glue!

Katey, you must do something
I think you’re way too high
Katey, just pleaser do something
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

Katey, Katey, what is wrong with you?
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

For a buck seventy-nine, one bottle gets you through
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

Not 409!
Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
Not 409!
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

Kate, quit huffin’ that 409
(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)

The title is a foolproof 555 alone!

I dont know whats a better title, that one or McLovin, maybe its a tie, yeah it is. 5s for this and the title

If you can make this a double-sided hit with the Beach Boys' "409," then you'll really clean up!

Syncronos, it's too bad there is no Tommy Tutone round, because I think this would have won it. . .and it's one of my favorites of the month. I loved your glue one, but "(Kate, quit huffin’ that 409)" is just as catchy as 8-6-7-5-3-0-Niiine. . .Kicks your Glue parody's Anus and I think I gave that one 4 or 5 points in it's Artistry round---Loved it

Great rhymage, paceage, and syllable matchage throughout, Syncronos. Cool! 555

Wow! Thanks for all the kind words! Ag: It's weird- I just started thinking 'what sounds like 867-5309?' and this song took shape. Jack: This may be better, but McLovin's cooler. Chigga-chigga-YEAH! Pacholek: *groan* TELL me you did that on purpose, because that's too good a pun to be spontaneous! B.A.D.: Well, you know, you COULD make a Tommy Tutone round... Kristof: Well, thanks for the good commentage!

408 is a cleaning solution, sold in little spray containers similar to the ones Windex is sold in.

Darnit. . .*409. . .I type faster than my eyes can keep up with sometimes. . .Darn 90 words a minute makes proofreading quite challenging--I can never keep up with the spell check mechanism.

Syncronos, don't you know that you CANNOT, I repeat, CANNOT get high on 409? I've tried it, and it's not possible. Peter Anderson, "409" is just what Dave said that it is, and it is one of America's most well-known cleaning products, right up there with Windex(R), Ajax Cleanser and Easy-Off oven cleaner.

Got it... :-)

You say CANNOT with such force, it makes one wonder if you tried to do it and failed...
