The Lyrics

If you do not know this song, what you are about to read may look seriously misryhmed, but that's the way the song goes. Anyway, this is about a guy with a severe roach problem, but has a WMD ( not me this time :) ) PS--Red Ants hate roaches
Roaches on the walls
Roaches in my place

Know where to hide
My device I'll wait untill it's fogged all
Then they all died
And they shoulda known better

And they die young
Faster they run

Down, Down, Down, they're goin'
Flush the roaches down in waitin' sewers
Then they all went SPLAT!
With all of the others

And they die young
Nowhere to run

Roaches in the halls
Roaches die by spray

Exterminators' quit
Bug bomb seeks all space you run for cover
They all got hit
And didn't see it comin'

Faster they run
Still they die young

Hey, funny AIC stuff as usual, man! I had to do a report on roaches about a week and a half ago in college! Sorry haven't been around a while...check the thread.

This song is about when you hope someone "raids" your house. 5-5-5

Thank you guys. This wasn't that hard, sometimes the lyrics get changed at the last second after I have revised alot already. :)

555. I myself don't have roach problems, but every once in awhile I tend to have with mice and spiders(I don't know which is worst).

Thanks Step-chan. I have never had problems with any of them although mole crickets and flies occasionally get into the house.

Judging from the date on the first comment I can tell that this must be one of your early parodies. Judging from how well the new words fit the music I must say I'm sorry I missed it back then, it's got a very grungy feel that goes quite well with the original. 555.

Thanks Peter, and yeah, this was posted March 16th. Definitely one of my better earlier parodies, looking back at it now I wouldn't change much except adding the "ooh" and getting rid of that out of place apostrophe.
