The Lyrics

I've always wanted to parody this...and now, thanks to yet another "I-was-taking-a-shower-and-it-came-to-me-somehow", I've done it! O, and here, just cuz i'm so nice.
As I wade through the mess that I have left on my floor
I try to get to the hall, but I cannot open the door
'Cause I've left food scraps around for so long that
Even my roommate thinks that my mind is gone

And I ain't never brushed my teeth, or ever used mouthwash
Me actually doing work? Of course that's unheard of!
I never watch what I'm saying, or what I'm eating
So you can bet that I'll use two sticks of chalk

I rarely ever work, cuz I gotta slob
As I belch, I can see the stench in form of smoke, fool
I'm the kind of low-life that your mama warned you about
Staying up, don't eat sprouts
Spit on you? Well, you can't doubt

Been spendin' most me life, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
Can't be stuffed to be nice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
Most my meals are corn and rice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
Stuff that needs one or two bites, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise

I got an easy job, man, it gets me thinkin'
Guess it barely counts as work, boss don't care if I shirk
'Cause my job's to check the ice-cream machine
To see if it still works, making that chocolate ice cream

An uneducated fool wit money on my mind
I got way too much cash, do not know what to buy
Got a tricked out Honda S2000, bra
But I ain't got insurance, so don't ram my bumper, fool

Make more money than my lawyer per day
I still live in my apartment, but I don't lament
A mansion needs more cleaning, an apartment needs zero
And I don't like to clean you should know

It ain't hard to see that I'm lazy
Use a garden hose to help me pee*

The couch has stains and lice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
Keep messages concise, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
I can't cook to save my life, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
Only take-out will suffice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise

Girlfriend doesn't mind it, she don't care if I spit
Yes, I have a girlfriend, even though I'm not fit
Think she should be runnin'? Or maybe at least hurlin'?
My baby got no sense of smell, but I don't know why she stays

She says that she loves me, it don't matter if I'm lazy
Though I still do not know why, that's alright with me
They say she's nuts -- I know she loves
I know I'm lucky**; that's why I'll never stop being a slob, fool

My armpit stink can melt ice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
My shirt's home to lots of mice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
I've had cancer once or twice, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise
You can't stab my guts with knives***, livin' in a Slacker's Paradise

My rear end-al breeze can kill the trees
You can change my shape just with a squeeze****
*This means "I" connect a garden hose to my...you know...and have the other end over the toilet. I know, I know, too much information!**The original lyrics were "frontin'" instead of "lucky" here, so be careful when pacing to the mp3 I gave you.***That means "I'm" so fat that stabbing me in the gut with a knife would only half go through my belly fat.****Again, "I'm" so fat that squeezing "me" would shift the fat around. Gross, I know.

Oh, I should've mentioned: the "two sticks of chalk" line means hat when "I" cark it, when they mark out the body with chalk, "I'd" be so fat that they'd need another stick of chalk. Just a gag I pinched from Red Dwarf.

(SOTM) Some of these lines seemed a little slacked off.

(SOTM) Let's hope this parody gets you some points this time around. I honestly think anyone can relate to this kind of parody, because deep down, isn't everyone a slacker to some degree? I love your OS choice, clever lyrics, alternate chrouses, gee, what else?... All of this merits to 555.

(SOTM) You're one funny dude, bob....I bet writing this used up all your energy. The choruses in particular slayed me...."Most my meals are corn and rice/ Stuff that needs one or two bites" was a fave. High 5s

(SOTM) Oh man. I think this might be your best ever. The lines about the girlfriend with no sense of smell and the smoke-burping made me laugh out loud. I don't blame you at all for being inspired by my "Newbie Parodist"...this is WAY better!!

I keep spending all my life, living in this kinda life..... So like me....

SOTM - There was a guy in my hometown who had a fanzine where his adress was listed as "his name c/o unwashed things in the kitchen". We have a single slang word for unwashed things in the kitchen so I guess it was shorter and funnier in TOL, but I figure you'll get the point anyway. :-)

(SOTM) Some missed rhymes compared to the unedited version, but this paced fine and was funny, especially the second chrorus. Great work pieman.

(SOTM) Three cheers for BOB, The SubGenius of SLACK ... naaaah, too much trouble, can't be bothered.

(SOTM) wow, bobpie, that's your best one that I've read imo - fanatastic - and if Cat thinks it's better than hers, I remember giving hers votes in SOTM - so it's definitely a contender for mine - 555

(SOTM) I'm curious as to how a slacker in da hood can afford a $30,000 Honda S2000 ... maybe he stole it. Nah, that would require some effort.

(SOTM) I hope this isn't personal experience. Well done.

SOTM...I have to (again) give props to those of you who even TRY to do Rap...let alone do it well. Excellent job!
