The Lyrics

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This basketball team probably wish they knew that, because now they're gonna get chewed out by their coach...
Perkins, just tell me how
Your performance is shite
We're down by twenty
'Cause you're moving like you are stoned

You hang around the key
Not much moving there, I see
Throw the ball to you
And you miss, it's just three feet!

I'll let you sit out
But what the hell's wrong with you?
"I woke up late, see
I didn't have time to eat"

Shape up and put some effort in you dipshit
That's what you get for eating zip for breakfast
You don't recall what sport we're playin', well now
That's what you get for eating zip for breakfast

Jones, you're not playing right
Did you stay up all night?
I'll break your pelvis
If you don't tell me what's wrong

"Yeah, well, this morning
We ran out of Coco Pops
So obviously
There was no point in eating-"

That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard
There's other stuff that you can eat for breakfast
But because you are so pedantic, well now
That's what you get for eating zip for breakfast

My team's turned into gits
Champions of basketball
Now we've damn near lost control
I ask you, what the heck?

We need to work out
A proper time to wake up
So you can all have time
Enough time to eat something
So that you are functioning
More than a busted machine
Machine, machine

(Ohhh yeah!)

Shape up, the score is now thirty to nothing
That's what you get for eating zip for breakfast
All out of energy, that is your fault, now
That's what you get for eating zip for breakfast

That's what you get, morons
You're just tired, what, what, you're just tired?
I'm sorry, that's just bullshit
Eat some toast next time, dipshit

I can totally hear the coach talking this way to his baseball team. This was great!

Made me hungry for 555 grams of sugar! I did my own ode to breakfast:

I eat zip for breakfast almost every day. In fact, I usually eat only one large meal, sometimes two, every day. It would take more than no breakfast for a basketball team to get this bad, as in drinking beer and smoking marijuana instead of practicing. Great parody, and 5s.

SOTM: Very nice! I actually heard a variation of this called "Missing All Your Breakfast" but this is much much better! Very nice!

Agrimorfee comments on many of my parodies that they don't fully work for him if reading the intro is necessary for understanding the lyrics, I myself on the other hand normally don't agree with him on that because to me the intro can be the equivalent of a good stage talk intro (and also because I often love writing them). At first I was tempted to agree with Agri's normal view on this one but then I realised that what I was really missing here was a better clarification that the lyrics was gonna jump between player and coach perspective, and that that could have been done either in the intro or in the song itself (coach yelling in all caps would be one way). So in short it didn't really work for me but for once I know exactly why and can give you this long feedback banter about it! ;-)
Arwen - February 28, 2010 - Report this comment dear sweet Wyoming Cowboys wouldn't be sucking it up so much this season if they were eating a better breakfast, huh? I wish I'd had this information months ago! ; ) Thanks for making me smile...

I personally didn't find the transition all that awkward, but I do see what Peter was saying. . .something about this parody was very cute, not my favorite Katy Perry song (in fact probably my least favorite) but I'm not judging that.. .am I

If coach is so concerned about breakfast, get them some egg mcmuffins! Enjoyable :)
