The Lyrics

Due to Spellchecker and my goof, I re-submitted this song to correct the word heroin, not heroine!
Death by heroin
Addiction killed Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Packets of “Ace of Spades” were found alongside him
Drugs seem to be the celebrity’s best friend

Death by heroin
Rehab tryin‘; up, then down again
Actor used it for his pain suppression
Drugs seem to be the celebrity’s best friend

Death by heroin
Stardom with excesses and riches pave the way
For degradation
Sad that substance abuse is the game they play
Is deadly, and claims a life again

Addiction killed Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Packets of “Ace of Spades” were found alongside him
Drugs seem to be the celebrity’s best friend

@Amazed puppet- what a pathetic life you must lead to nitpick something so trivial. Had Phillip Seymour Hoffman died from GAGA heroin packets instead of ACE OF SPADES, then I could have been technically correct with "Death by Heroine." As it is, for the record and the history of heroin, the word is indeed in the _confused words_ category and has been mis-spelled all over the world for over a century! Get over it and if you feel strongly enough then spellcheck the entire site and every parody from every author. Yesterday, AFW got Shirley Temple Black's name wrong which is equivalent to Olivia John Newton in my book!!! He self-corrected though and so did I with this parody. Btw, list yourself as Amazed 1-Bomber in the future for absolute accuracy... NFR

The time spent by a grammarian is worth a thousand times more than the time wasted by an inept parodist issuing weapons details.

Amazed at Amazed! Learn what the word inept means. Just b/c YOU don't like weapons parodies (which by the way is a false misrepresentation of my 2331 parodies that are far-ranging as far as diversity is concerned), doesn't mean that others do not; in fact, I've gotten a lot of good feedback over these almost 3 years from many other parodists over my weapon system parodies, whether on land, in the air, and on the seas- even in space! And I certainly do not fit the profile of someone who is awkward or incapable. My stats speak for themselves and so does my author page which is out in the open unlike yours. Integrity requires honesty and you don't even have the intestinal fortitude to address me under your real name. Speaks volumes about your cowardice and weak strength of your convictions. You are merely an annoying, repetitive commentator with strong opinions (key word). Btw, this parody deals with PSH's death so mentioning the whole weapons thing is inappropriate here. You've been verbally bested several times now but keep coming back for more. Must help you pass the day. Grammarian? No, more like simpleton...
