The Lyrics

The first half in my round 5 of Tone-Def's parody contest. A serious original song, parodied for a serious topic, with a twist of my excellent humor ;-)
I've got H.I.V
I guess that wasn't all too smart
I just got diagnosed today,
Now life's coming apart

Now sometimes my body's numb
And other times it is in pain
Oh, just why did I do this?
What exactly did I gain?

And it seems to me
I enjoyed life
Just like ol' Bill Clinton did
And now I'm getting punishment
Like some teenage kid
And my body
Will sometimes just twitch
And sometimes I just get chills
I can't believe I traded this
Just to get me some thrills

Love can cause you loss
Every day there's a chance I'll die
And when I live one more day
I end up wondering why

Now all day I sigh
By my hospital food tray
If only I'd resisted
Oh, if I only had been gay

And it seems to me
I enjoyed life
Just like ol' Bill Clinton did
And now I'm getting punishment
Like some teenage kid
And my body
Will sometimes just twitch
And sometimes I just get chills
I can't believe I traded this
Just to get me some thrills

I've got H.I.V
I guess that wasn't all too smart
I just got diagnosed today,
Now life's coming apart

I've got H.I.V
I've got warts and lice all over me
And now my skin's breaking out in rash
And it's getting hard to pee.

And it seems to me
I enjoyed life
Just like ol' Bill Clinton did
And now I'm getting punishment
Like some teenage kid
And my body
Will sometimes just twitch
And sometimes I just get chills
I can't believe I traded this
Just to get me some thrills

Er, fact is, half the parodies on this site could be considered like that. Try and rate the song fairly

Well done Wdh , folks some parody can be prolific and not be a comedy fest. . No high marks for humor still well said. Bravo.

Yikes. This was mostly an experiment to see how these sensitive topics would be handled(good thing I dont submit my political parodies)

I liked it! No it's not funny, but we can sub profound for funny

Well - while the topic doesn't offend me, it wasn't overly funny, the tempo was off in a lot of places, and even the "funny" suggestion that HIV is a punishment is kinda messed up
