The Lyrics

From The Album "Something Goats Can Dance To"
Why was I torn from my tranquil life
It was warm, it was divine, and it was effortless
I was pushed out of my world of bliss
Well I can never see that world again
Yeah I'm quite depressed, quite distraught, over what they did
What's the point of living now
I wish they had just left me in
There's no excuse's for their sin
Oh why was it me, this really sucks I'm born

I'm all out of breath, crawling out of here
I'm cold and I'm ashamed upside-down above the floor
Hold me by my feet
Spank me on my rear
I'm wide-awake, and I can see florescent light I'm born
Dad you're kind of late
I'm already born

I've been brought into this crummy blight
I wish now I just held on and not gone towards the light
Worst decision made so far
They pinch my face, I'm red and sore
I can cry but they squeeze some more
I'm about to break down
I'm overwhelmed and born

I'm all out of breath, crawling out of here
I'm cold and I'm ashamed upside-down above the floor
Hold me by my feet
Spank me on my rear
I'm wide-awake, and I can see florescent light I'm born
Dad you're kind of late
I'm already born. Born

I wish they had just left me in
There's no excuse's for their sin
Why did they pick me, to ruin my life I'm born

I'm all out of breath, crawling out of here
I'm cold and I'm ashamed, upside-down above the floor
Hold me by my feet
Spank me on my rear
I'm wide-awake and I can see florescent light I'm born
I'm all out of breath, crawling out of here
The doctor is a quack, he almost dropped me on the floor
Dad you're kind of late
I'm already born. Born.

Very cute and very clever! And you picked a great song to parody.

And if you have a minute, check out our "Funny Kind of Womb" - it would make a good prequel to this one!

When I was born, the doctor slapped my mother.

Clever idea, well executed. But, for me, repetition works better in original songs than in parodies and I would have liked to have seen changes in some of the lines that repeat themselves.

A ripper! I hope the experience for the mother wasn't....

Ditto Johnkins's comment. But a great concept nonetheless, and Born is a great (and not obvious) sub for Torn. Fave lines: Dad you're kind of late - I'm already born."

Loved the original, loved this. A minor pacing flaw in "Hold me by the feet" that I'll overlook. "Congratulations, sir, you've got triplets. All 5s"
