The Offspring

The Offspring's, "Come Out And Play"
Better Lyrics:
By the time you hear the buzzer, it's already too late.
One shirt goes to goodwill and the other the trash.
One top's shrunken and the other is pink.

You throw out the load like a thousand before.
You washed your t-shirt so much that the last time it tore.
And now you find the laundromat is charging too much.
You gotta bring your own soap. Bring your own soap. Bring your own...

Note: Weird Al parodied the first verse and that's it. This is a parody of the second.
Original Lyrics:
By the time you hear the sirens, it's already too late.
One goes to the morgue and the other to jail.
One guy's wasted and the other's a waste.

It goes down the same like a thousand before.
No one's getting smarter. No one's learning the score.
Your never-ending spree of death and violence and hate
is gonna tie your own rope. Tie your own rope. Tie your own...
