The Lyrics

Flooding from the shower ain't too great
My socks are getting soaked right now
Carpet won’t be drying; It’s wrecked I’m afraid
Not even if I try to use that Shamwow

Well… My sink over-flowed too
The puddle it made was huge
Next time I’ll check if it was left on

My big screen TV’s destroyed can’t watch the game
No warranty!
This water has gone up past my ankles
Watching me splash to find the leak
I sigh… And four letter words I cry!
Somebody’s neck I really could strangle!
Water’s up past my ankles!!!

This flooding’s gotten out of hand… And quite
Cause my dishwasher’s cracked too
My kitchen has turned to debris
Table’s floating by
With no home insurance I’m screwed

This flood has brought me doom
Need to rent a motel room
My current home’s only good for a swan

I don’t really have a choice till the water’s drained
House of algae
From my chandelier seaweed dangles
I’ll do housework while my wife shrieks
“Oh My!!! On our bed some flounders died!
That awful smell I hardly can handle!!!”

“Well then go light some candles!”

I’m getting really darn annoyed with mold that I scrape
Off everything!
We can’t use our Internet cable
Attaching cords send a shock through me!
Twist it tight… Turn off that faucet, Guy!
Cause I just mopped up all of these puddles
No liquids I’ll funnel!!!
No slime… Or water damage this time!
Because my whole home was in shambles
With water up past my ankles!

(Flooding from the shower ain't too great)

Somehow, expected something lewd... this was much better. Flooded in Fives.

I live in an area of the U.S. where we get about seventeen flash flood warnings a year, so this one really hit home. For some reason, "from my chandelier, seaweed dangles" was absurdly funny. Sidenote: I've heard third-world countries are using ShamWows instead of sandbags nowadays.

ABC (UV)- I was not expecting flooding...but you did a nice job telling a story and changing up the chorus each time...555 more inches of water for you

(ABC) The votes don't seem to be "flooding" in, but they fives...

An overflow of great lines, Weird Al-level work here Matthias, better than my own "Pringles" I must admit.

Always thought the TOS was a tad annoying. . .Matt--a bit of a roll going on here, perhaps you should stop going for epic and just go for funny--because neither this song or "Smooth" are epic but you knocked both out the ball park with less than home run topics. ..

And how did you know I had my faucet on while I read this? I gagged at the "flounder" line. Epic fives.

(ABC5) Nothing like a parody of a really whiny-sounding OS about a kinda mundane topic, I always say. I just the love the whole overblown-ness of it all, if that makes sense. 555 plumbers for you!

Some late fives are "flooding" in from me. Great job, Matthias!

This is a really good parody from you that a lot of us seems to have overlooked on initial posting, lots of good lines that made me smile and I even LOLed so much I lost track at "House of algae", if you ever tour Pakistan make shore (sorry, couldn't resist) that's the name of your support band.

(ABC Tournament) Funny you should mention it. My house got flooded last year and it was very deep. Great parody and this song is submerged in 555's from the flood.

You took a horrible song and a tragic subject and made it uber epic lulz. It takes someone awesome to do that. 555
