The Lyrics

this is something I wrote, not out of comedy, but I was listening to the original and my own words took over in my head...
So no one said at eighteen you would turn to crack
you drank, you ate, ya smoked, but now you only blat*
its like being given twenty extra gears
but have a look at where you'll end up, in twenty odd years

Chorus
rehab it is for you
(cos your getting too poor)
rehab it is for you
(cos ive been there before)
rehab it is for you
(cos i need to go there too)

pick up a ball at ten, your selling a half weight
you've got your fitpack ready, things are going great
but you cant fuck around with drugs like these
cos it wont take long before your down, on hands and knees

Chorus
*slang drug term for inject.

Nice attempt at an anti-drug parody, Mike...but you've only half completed the song! There's the bridge and repeated half-verse to go, as wellas the chorus repeat. So...I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to rip you badly for pacing. Two other things...
1) A splash of humour in even the most serious parody can lift it, and
2) On this suite, we usually asterisk the F-word...it's common courtesy and respect for those who aren't comfortable with profanity. 233

Thanks Kristof, I think. Well its not really my fault for that I looked up the lyrics and what you see there is what I was givin in the original lyrics. I thought it was all pretty funny myself actually after reading it, and sorry about the language, but it WAS accepted so I dont see the complication :) thanks for the feeback
