The Lyrics

I wanted to try something that hadn't been done yet. The last time I tried that with my girlfriend, she slapped me. I'm sure there will be verbal beatings in the "Comments" section.
Prom Assistants

Prom assistants already on the scene
When I came that special night
Non-existent, the hope to be obscene
Like an eagle, they had sight

Prom assistants causing alarm in me
As they focused on my hands
There's no hope to grope. Forget get a piece
They're a curse on every man

Prom assistants kept saying, "That's enough!"
They are an evil breed
And there was no rum, no bongs, "No dirty dancing please!"
None of the things we need

Prom assistants, the human excrement
Searched the members of the band
Seeking booze and dope. Any found were seized
They're a curse on every man

They are watching us, they are watching us
God, they're watching us..prom assistants

Prom assistants. It looks like the end
Of any thrill we'd had in store
Non-existent, the chance at my prom friend
No foreplay on the floor

Prom assistants causing alarm in me
As they focused on my hands
There's no hope to grope. Forget get a piece
They're a curse on every man

There's no hope to grope. Forget get a piece
They're a curse on every man

They are watching us, they are watching us
God, they're watching us, prom assistants

Oh, God they're watching us, they are watching
They are watching us..
Prom assistants

The title alone was pure, unadulterated genius...and the parody followed through. Great job, Rick! 555

555 This is a very new idea here, and those are hard to come by. Now I need to talk to you about your name.............

IDKTOS, sorry.. I tend to just know songs that are pretty obscure. I thought it was funny though.

(ABC) You always have excellent pacing.

(P) I'm not sure I get this one Rick, good rhyming though.

(ABC05) see above - loved the title sub "Prom Assistants" - they are the scourge of every teenage boy
Johnny D - October 18, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) Brilliant title, and it just got brighter and brighter from then on!
Kristof Robertson - October 20, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) Still cacking over the title, and loving the piece.

(ABC) Hilarious title and concept, well rhymed. I only know the chorus line, but assume pacing was nailed throughout.
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - October 20, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) ...and after comparing with the original lyrics, your rhyming was brilliantly paced, as expected.

Excellent, Rick. Cheez, what a bunch of killjoys :-)
Arwen - October 24, 2005 - Report this comment
ABC--still made me smile, Rick...=)

ABC: Ah yes, a wonderful trip back in time to an era when people went out of their way to make sure I didn't hook up (if the school administration's not getting any, why should the students?)
