The Lyrics

Autumn is here (in the southern hemisphere, anyway)! So let's have a parody about the one thing that I'm pretty sure no-one likes about the season: cleaning up all the bloody leaves!
Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm, oh-oh-oh-oh
Yeah-eah, ha

I've been dreadin' this day, I hate it, mate
Cause autumn's here, and with it, comes lea-eaves
It may not start at least for the first couple of days
But soon the leaves will fly in my eyes
Ankle-deep, then knees, then thi-ighs
And cleanin' them all up will take fore-ever
I really think this season's dumb (mmm)
Cause I don't wanna wa-aste, no-o
The whole damn day scrapin' them up
Sometimes I pause a-and sa-a-a-a-a-ay

Stop now (leaves) fall down
Please stop doin' thi-is to me
It's not great (now) and I can't wait
For winter to-o come, cause thi-is blows
I hate work (true) that will never (why)
Stop fo-or near three-ee mo-onths time
Wish that I could let these leaves lie
It's an aesthetic I de-espi-ise (I despise)

Tell me if this has happened to you:
You spent more than half of the afternoo-oon
Dealin' with leaves brown and go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old
And you're totally covered i-in sweat drips
That you're thankful when a breeze rolls i-in
But then you look at the leaves and oh no-o-o-o-o
All of your hard-earned leaf piles and clumps?
Spread all over thanks to that gu-u-u-u-u-u-ust
Might be dark by the time you're done
And you look at the trees and sa-ee-ee-a-a-ay

Stop now (leaves) fall down
Cut this bullshit ou-out, I plead
Far from great (now) and I can't wait
For winter to-o come (please, winte-er, co-o-o-o-ome), cause thi-is blows
It's hard work (true), seems to never (why)
End, su-ure ain't ni-ine to-o five (a ci-inch? A lie-ie, no-ot true-ue-ue-ue-ue)
Let's not forget that half the time
Leaves are where spiders like to-o hi-ide (wish they'd die)

I don't know why it's always me
Who has to sweep up all of these lea-eaves
Not the only one livin'
In this house, I'm just sayin'
Know I could cut the time in half (oh)
If we had a leafblower, ma-an (oh)
But I don't know the pri-i-ice
So I'll just keep wasti-in'
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Bo-ored no-o-o-ow

Stop now (leaves) fall down
Why can't you keep be-ein' green (keep the gree-ee-een)?
It's so lame (now) and I can't wait
For winter to-o come (le-et winter co-o-o-ome), cause thi-is blows
It's dull work (true) and it never (why)
Contai-ains one da-amn su-urprise (hence why I've got droopy eye-eye-eye-eyes)
Sweep all the leaves into a pile
And hope no stupid wind co-omes by-y (wind comes by) (oh-oh-oh-woah)
Stop now (leaves) fall down
Tedious as cho-ores can be (hey-ee-yeah-eah)
Man, it grates (now) and I can't wait
For winter to-o come (countin' do-o-own), cause thi-is blows
Too much work (true), won't get better (why)
Could ge-et worse a-any-y time
The clouds decide that now's the time (now's the ti-ime)
To bucket down the rain, tha-at's shi-ite (oh-oh-oh-oh yeah) (total shite)

Stop now (leaves)
How I see-ee-ee-ee-eethe
With pure rage (pure rage)
Anger (know why)
Wish this could be ignored, but I'm (no-o-o-o-o-o)
Pedantic, my fault ev'ry-y ti-ime (ev'ry time)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

To be honest: I can't actually remember if I ever had to rake up the leaves. I do remember having to pick up some kinda spiky seed thingy, but I'm not sure how common that is (doesn't help I don't know what they are).
