The Lyrics

A guy drags another guy into the gym, despite neither of them being in any way fit for the task. Enjoy!
Tonight we're gonna get buff
Not instantly though, it's just the first day
It's the first step that will result in us getting all buff
Gonna go to the gym and look
We can't just leap in, cause sweating's a bother
Stare awkwardly at guys who are buff
Not staring in a gay way, right
There's nothing wrong with that, see
It'd just give off the wrong impression, we're both here to get our buffness higher
'Kay boy...let's drive on
While we're drivin', you say somethin' stupid kinda loud like:
"The turnoff's back there, man, where the hell are you going?"
I know what you're tryna to say, man
You're tryna to say "Oh, yeah, it's fitness time, it's fitness time"

It's fitne-ess
It's fitness ti-ime
I know what you're tryna to say
You're tryna to say it's time for fitness, it's fitness time, ooh!
It's fitne-ess
It's fitness ti-ime
Oh, oh, and oh-oh, heh

Won't go in the front room, where people see
No unbuffness on display, that's not okay
A-jogga-jogga, a-jogga-jogga, a-jogga-jog-ow-ow-oww!
Let's try out this weird treadmill thing
It's got a lot of big buttons on it, I'm sure some of them are important
Oh god, that button made it go zoom!
The readout says it's going two miles an hour but to us that's a speed we just can't go
Uhh, you know what, my buddy?
Let's try lifting weights
Let's try twenty pounds, lift it very gentily
I'm not sure that's a word, roll with it, man
Just don't drop it, keep a tight grip on
There it goes, broke my foot but we can't stop, cause it still is

It's fitne-ess
It's fitness ti-ime
The sweat is pooling in our socks cause of the fitness, good thing I brought extra socks, ooh!
It's fitne-ess
It's fitness ti-ime
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah, yeah-eah

Ooh, workin' out (aah)
Workin' out for
Workin' out for two
Workin' out for two sessions
Of course for us, man, we only last two sessions cause one lasts one minute
You wheeze out somethin' stupid like "That was shit!"
I know what you're tryna to say, man
You're tryna to say "That was the shit!"
Then you tell me your legs are sore, well uh, no-one's surprised
But I'm no medic

It's fitne-ess
It's fitness ti-ime
Fitness session is over, bu-uddy-y
It's fitne-ess
It's fitness ti-ime
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah, yeah-eah
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh yeah

Spoken word and comedy, if the original song was over six minutes and had a rap section, that's everything on my "shit that done make me not wanna parody something" checklist in one bundle of no-thank-you-I'm-outta-here...-ness.

This was awesome. By far one of the best I read for you. So good that I might not even attempt to parody this song because I don't think I can beat yours. Much better job of telling and having a consistently entertaining and hilarious story. Bravo! Bravo! Encore!

What made this a lot of fun is that it reads like a genuine FotC song. I can just imagine the video...NTTISAWWT.

This could definitely pass as a FotC song on its own. A lot of funny lines in here and even though it's spoken word, you managed to hit the pacing perfectly (as far as I could tell). Excellent work!

This parody worked out pretty well, could be one of your bets one yet.

(Artistry) Very funny TCOP! This must have been a ridiculously hard OS to parody and I give you some major props. You really buffed up this spoof with great comedy.
