The Lyrics

this is my second parody.......hope you like it.
I'm losin' all my skin
got hair under my chin
my head is cavin' in
cause I'm a has been.

my clothes are out of date.
i can't afford to wait.
I need to be a teen again.

I got to buy a car,
I've got to be a star
{midlife crisis}
want to be popul-ae
i swear that i'm not gay ay ay ay ay ay

I'm 60 yes it's true!
but i need to look like you.
I don't want to be old
but i'm just another......fake.

It dont mean that i cant be a teen.
I just got to shop at abercrombie!!!

O my god, 90 bucks!
Abercrombie sucks!
today things cost so much
but i have to keep up.

If i want to be young,
i need to spend 90 bucks,
what is this crappy rap music???

I want to be so cool
but im just a dumb fool
{midlife crisis}
I'll have a heart attack
If i become a Frat
i need to be a Teeeeeen!

I'm 60 yes it's true!
but i want to be just like you!
What's up with this moose
sewed on to my 90 dollar shirt??

It dont mean that im not cool
i just need to stop being such a fool.

Things aren't goin my way
i got nothin to say
how do kids get paid?
90 bucks, no way!

I'm goin back to 60
guess i'm not cool enough
i wish i was still a teen
but i just give up.

Wanted to be a teen
but i'm gay!
How did i get here?
What should i say???

You're perfect yes it's true
not me, only you!!
I wish i could be young,
but i am just a fake.

WOW, someone who actually listens to FNM. This is not paced perfectly and somewhat incomplete/missing a few syllables in some lines ( you may have a different version than my CD or have read the lyrics from a sheet), but is worthy of a 4 on pacing, and 444 overall. If you like FNM ( and ANGEL DUST ), check out Red Ant on the authors page ( about 54 submissions, 4 FNM and the first 3 from this CD ). FINALLY someone who does FNM other than myself.

I've been doing FNM parodies for a long time, even have my own feature on a web page that promotes Mike Patton and related projects. Some of them are on here... also done some Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle, etc.

I know there are more FNM parodies out there, what I meant was posted here. Also, I gave the benefit of the doubt on pacing assuming the lyrics were read off the sheet, but in retrospect it should have been a 3. Wish you would have listed that web page.

I think the Faith No More ones I did were posted here, look in my author page for "Breakfast" (Epic) and.... that's all I can remember:( Maybe the rest were Mr Bungle. But I have another FNM one coming - and I like it a lot! The website is, lots of info on bands like FNM and less known ones that are of a similar category. Anyone wants to do a FNM collaboration parody send me an email - darkjon64 (a) hotmail . com

Sorry, can't email ys, but you missed my version of " Caffeine " ( track 2 on AD ) called " Kathleen ( High School Crush ) ". PS- Why no vote on Midlife Crisis?
