The Lyrics

It's thrown out reluctantly
It's new and that stinks
I wasted precious money
I buy a new loaf and then
Much too quickly
It gets thrown out, once again
My place was quite messy
Which attracted some things
I do not want to see
At least one has been climbing
My fridge or wall
This is not good at all

Well I'm no fan of mice
But I seem to be stuck with some
I'm feeling kind of glum
Because they're hard to kill
I put out glue traps but
they are not that dumb
Why did they have to come?
Destructive rodent scum

The bread goes in cabinets
So it can't get
Devoured by rodents
Yet the mice are still around
And this is shown
By what they leave on the ground
It's unsanitary
And can cause disease
so far I've been lucky
And I paid lots of money
To clean the stuff
But it wasn't enough

Well I'm no fan of mice
And that's 'cause I am not insane
They are not toilet trained
And that could make me ill
Now my walls have scratches
They are quite a pain
And since I'm not a Jain
I want them to be slain

I'm no fan of mice
In fact I'd say I am a foe
Wish I could make them go
With a ten dollar bill
But they do not grasp the
Point of paper dough
I guess their minds are slow
What to do? I don't know

I'm no fan of mice
The Cinderella fantasy
Seems really bad to me
Because the classic film
Shows rodents as better
Than they are truly
So it's a bad movie
Same for Ratatouille

Good parody - the Cinderella and Ratatouille criticisms were the best parts for me.

Kudos for chnaging up the chorus sounds and still keeping the rhyme scheme. Didn't get the "Jain" line, but nice job on an already horrifically overplayed song.

(Amiright idol) I liked the choruses more than the verses. I also don't know what a "Jain" is.

Most of this was written last year, which means that nothing can be concluded from this about the state of my apartment. As for Jains, they are a religious sect from India whose defining characteristic is a belief in total non-violence toward all living things. Wikipedia can probably back me up on this.

(AmIRight Idol) Really Ethan, this was partially based on true story? I felt you did a pretty good job with a very unique OS. I also like the overall idea. Not that any one line was really over the top but as a whole this one chimed very well for me, I enjoyed this read, and thanks for introducing the OS to me, which does having backing tracks out there!

Reading this again more closely for AI, I still like the humor and the changed up vowel sounds in the chorus. The second verse had a few words that seemed to need to be off-stressed a bit to scan, but that isn't a big deal here, just an observation.
