"You Down With ADD"

The Lyrics

I have Attention Deficit Disorder and I decided to write a song about it to the tune of "OPP."
Charm me with harmony
Ok, let's go to it

ADD how can I explain it
I'll take you frame by frame it
You just can't stop jumpin' and kickin' it
A is for Attention D for is for Deficit
The last D it stands for Disorder
It's sorta like when you're always fidgeting
You can't sit still for a minute here
You're sittin' in a meeting and your mind's a-wandering
Thinkin' bout all the things you need to get done
Bust it
You ever see a girl you know and then you say hello
Forget her name and where you met her even though you should know
Then when you get home later, you remember just who she was
You slap your forehead and you say "How can I be so dumb?"
It's not just something that happens every now and then
It happens nearly every day (Boy is that scary!)
It's ADD, oh yes, you know you have it,
You'd take your pill if you could remember where you (put it!)
How many people out there know just what I'm getting at
There's no room on your desk with all your books and papers on it!
Well my friends that's ADD, so are you down with it
And if you are, here's your membership

You down with ADD (Yeah you know me)
You down with ADD (Yeah you know me)
You down with ADD (Yeah you know me)
Who's down with ADD (All of us here)

And when you have ADD, it sure is not a picnic
Your mind's moving so fast that your brain can't keep up with it
You get distracted, unfocused, diverted from the picture
And all your friends are saying "Hey, girl, you have got some issues!"
And you know that's so true, you wonder "what's wrong with me?"
Your doctor tells youhmm"you have ADD!"
"So lady, here you go, it's a presciption for Ritalin, take one pill daily."
Now tell me exactly,
Have you ever had a day when you forget to take your meds
And all day long you just want to go back home to bed
And the next minute, you're so hyper that you can't sit still
You just keep praying that there's gonna be a fire drill
You need to go outside to move around and get some air
Cause if you stay here one more minute, you're gonna be tearing out your hair!
So you go off to the restroom even though you do not have to go
Then you come back and wonder what you've missed (oh no!)
But it don't matter "cause if you'd been there anyway
You would not hear it "cause your mind would be far away
That's ADD, oh yes that's what it's all about
So let's get to it right now!

You down with ADD (Yeah you know me)
You down with ADD (Yeah you know me)
You down with ADD (Yeah you know me)
Who's down with ADD (All of us here)

I haven't heard The Original Song (TOS) in ages, but from what I remember this looks excellent. I am curious though how you managed to make it through a song of this length and complexity without losing attention (or perhaps you wrote it in 5 minutes?).

Awesome all around!

To Red Ant, Hee was difficult, but I was determined!

It's pretty left out the third verse though. It didnt exactly keep up with the original but it was pretty good

555 Sir for a well done parody! I doubt that ADD is a correct diagnosis for you. You certainly can focus, and direct your attention to a writing good parody.

littleCupCakes, trust me, I really do have ADD! Sometimes, people with ADD can hyperfocus on something that they are really into. It's just that we can't focus on what we SHOULD be doing at the work, class, chores, etc. But I'm glad you liked it!
