The Lyrics

that "bad cereal" requested by Ben! here ya go, man! please enjoy!
OS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LklFP1IG9KY&pbjreload=10.
(needin’ a sweet of a treat, for my mornin’ time eats)
(needin’ a sweet of a treat, for my mornin’ time eats)
(needin’ a sweet of a treat, for my mornin’ time eats)
(need, eat, sweet-treat)

I shopped at the grocers, all day long
15 times the speakers played that Bobby Day song
hoped that I would find a good breakfast treat
but instead, wound up with taste of defeat

Rocks & Cardboard, (not sweet eats)
Blah, Blah, Rocks & Cardboard, (eat, it ain't a treat)
Old Rocks & Cardboard is what this flaky bran stuff tastes like! (eat, it ain't a treat)

every little swallow, near comes back on me
can't believe I paid four bucks, eighty-three
a paper towel, torn up, not whole
is just what seems to be in my bowl

Rocks & Cardboard, (not sweet eats)
Blah, Blah, Rocks & Cardboard (eat, it ain't a treat)
Old Rocks & Cardboard is what this flaky bran stuff tastes like! (eat, it ain't a treat)

(near-puking moan)

I guess I'll grab a muffin for breakfast, again
Waffle Crisp is awful, sure to kill me, man!
this puffy wheat tastes like packing material
oh, Good Lord, just what happened to cereal?

I shopped at the grocers, all day long
shoppin’ and a-shoppin’ to that Bobby Day song
hoped that I would find a good breakfast treat
but instead, wound up with taste of defeat

Rocks & Cardboard, (not sweet eats)
Blah, Blah, Rocks & Cardboard (eat, it ain't a treat)
Old Rocks & Cardboard is what this flaky bran stuff tastes like! (eat, it ain't a treat)

well, I guess I'll grab a muffin for breakfast, again
Waffle Crisp is awful, sure to kill me, man!
this puffy wheat tastes like packing material
oh, Good Lord, just what happened to cereal?

I shopped at the grocers, all day long
30 times the speakers played that Bobby Day song
hoped that I would find a good breakfast treat
but instead, wound up with taste of defeat

Rocks & Cardboard, (not sweet eats)
Blah, Blah, Rocks & Cardboard (eat, it ain't a treat)
Old Rocks & Cardboard is what this flaky bran stuff tastes like! (eat, it ain't a treat)

(needin’ a sweet of a treat, for my mornin’ time eats)
(needin’ a sweet of a treat, for my mornin’ time eats)
(needin’ a sweet of a treat, for my mornin’ time eats)
(need, eat)
(random whistle)
thanks for reading!

My uncle tried to get me to eat Grape-Nuts cereal and it tasted like gravel! No thanks! 555! I miss Product 19.

^ thanks! Grape Nuts, eh? haven't had that stuff in forever. apparently, I'm not missing much! one cereal I actually really like, that not a lot of people seem to, is raisin bran! (specifically, post brand!)

Thanks a million Jonathan! Hey pal, my daughter just told me about Coke Zero No Sugar is replacing Coke Zero. Can you do a parody about not taking my sugar away? I'd like that. Great to see all your parodies today too. You are one of Amiright's best and my favorite!

^ hmm... I think I could do something with that Maroon 5 song, "Sugar." give me a bit to tinker with that. also, thank you very much for the kind words. considering the talented authors here at amiright, that's quite a compliment! :)
