The Lyrics

An eleven-year-old frowned at his plate
He didn’t want the broccoli and his dog took it away
It’s an A-plus when you wanted an A
It’s a found twenty bucks on a street grate
And isn’t it sardonic…makes you think

It’s like the right words when you didn’t know what to say
It’s some courage when you thought you’d be afraid
It’s a leaf blower when you’d thought you’d have a rake
When all seems lost…life can get better

A young girl watched the cars go by
She sat at a bus stop, a tear in her eye
She missed the last bus so she would be there all night
And as another bus pulled up she thought,
“This must be paradise.”
And isn’t it sardonic…makes you think

It’s like the right words when you didn’t know what to say
It’s some courage when you thought you’d be afraid
It’s a leaf blower when you’d thought you’d have a rake
When all seems lost…life can get better

There are times when you don’t know what to do
When there seems to be no happy ending in sight
Sometimes it can all turn around and then
You wonder if you should’ve thought of it as a half-full cup
And it was alright in the first place

A fast watch when you thought you were late
A slow day when you really need a break
It’s like a helping hand when you’re overcome with strife
It’s losing the job of your dreams
And then realizing what you want to do with your life
And isn’t it sardonic…makes you think
A little too sardonic…yeah, really makes you think

It’s like the right words when you didn’t know what to say
It’s some courage when you thought you’d be afraid
It’s a leaf blower when you’d thought you’d have a rake
When all seems lost…life can get better
There are times when you don’t know what to do
Then life comes to the rescue and bails you out
Bailing you out

I always like '180' parodies, IE parodies that are the exact opposite of the original, I do that a lot because it's consistent and keeps in tune with the original's meaning. Your pacing could use some work, but your imagination is pretty strong. Nothing real negative to say here, just work on pacing and you are there.
