The Lyrics

Since you've been gone
Well I feel like all my plans have just been foiled.
Since you've been gone
I was arrested when I tried to steal the whole world's oil
Well, I'm feeling like I just stole a car,
but I turned the alarm on.
You know I can't make a good robbery,
Since you've been gone
(Since you've been gone)
I couldn't feel any worse
if I couldn't even steal a free rose.
(Since you've been gone)
It couldn't hurt any more if I just got a sign that said
"I'm a robber!" on my clothes.
(Ow ow idy ow ow ow idy ow didy dow didy dow)
Since you've been gone
Well, it feels like I'm getting shot by a cop everyday.
Since you've been gone
It's like I got a sentance to jail that just won't go away.
Ever since the day you qui-it,
I couldn't make a good robbery.
I feel almost as bad as I did
when you were with me.

Probably. I dunno. That's one of the first parodies on this site (that I can remember) just directed toward one writer. I'm sure there's a few. Nice 555.

The thing is, T.J., sometimes you write parodies that I'm shocked that were actually accepted such as Bush, and then go and write a great song like this. You're unpredictable. I give it 4's.
