The Lyrics

Thought of this ten years ago, but never wrote it. Still remember all the lyrics.
I wonder what it's like to be a painmaker
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the pain
Throw people in boxes with little yellow tags on every one
And they'll be seeing some stars when I'm done, when I'm done

I wonder what it's like to be a blooper hero
I wonder what I'd do if I was famous for my mistakes
People would be watching videos of me and be laughing at them
I don't think I'd be too happy with them, with them

Yeah, yeah
Freedom, what did you hope to learn about beer
If I was something else, would it all fall apart
Strange where were you when we started this pain
I wish the Reel Big Fish would just stop hassling me
And you and you and me

Well I wonder what it's like to be a rain poncho
I wonder what I'd do if I had rain on my head
(Rain on my head)
Well, I'd shout out an order
Get me off of this person, right now yeah
Oh, can't you hear my big huge speakerphone, this phone

Yeah, yeah

Freedom, what did you hope to learn about beer
If I was something else, would it all fall apart
Strange where were you when we started this pain
I wish the Reel Big Fish would just stop hassling me
And you and you and me

Song won't change, song will stay
'Cause these lyrics all will go really with this tune
It won't change at all from this
To you and you, from me, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Freedom, what did you hope to learn about beer
If I was something else, would it all fall apart
Strange where were you when we started this pain
I wish the Reel Big Fish would just stop hassling me

I wish the Reel Big Fish would just stop hassling me
I wish the Reel Big Fish would just stop hassling me
And you and me

DKTOS, so abstaining. ("Wonder what it's like to be a rain poncho"????) Too deep for me... ;)

Thanks Christie. Yeah I thought up the entire parody ten years ago, back when Reel Big Fish were still popular. Don't know why I didn't write it until now.
