The Lyrics

This thing started as being about a bad attempt at being witty, then suddenly I started writing about well-intentioned obvious statements. It's weird what your brain does to you when you write parodies.
Duh, duh duh, duh duh
Duh duh duh duh duh, duh
Duh duh duh duh-uh
Duh duh
Duh duh duh duh

Shut up, Dirk
Nothing that say is very witty
I ask you look it up, it's very easy (peasy)
Just pointing out the obvious ain't witty (witty)
Trust me
Yes, I know that Superman's underwear
Is on the outside there, I know (I know)
Just stating what is plain to see's a no-no (no-no)
Ask you the time, don't point at the clock
Say it's half-past two
I know it's there, dude
Ev'rything you say aggravates me
You say I look stressed
(No duh!)

Lordy, lordy, lordy
Can't you stop it, it is annoying
It's a bad tic
Do you even try to say something that I cannot
See with my own eyes, you clod
There is no need to be all Captain Obvious, dude
Stop, dude (x15)

Listen, man (man)
When I've just burned myself don't say "that's hot, look out" (look out)
I can see that, I've got third-degree burns, don't point it out
It makes you look like a moronic dumbass, such an utter clown
I am not bloody blind
I know there's a sun that's up in the sky
There's no need to point and say it's bright
Still not blind (not blind)
Yes, I'm kinda pissed, it may not seem nice (not so nice)
To rebuke your best advice
Although that's not sayin'
Much, despite your best intentions
It's all plain to see
(Not blind!)

Lordy, lordy, lordy
Cease and desist, it's an annoying
Useless habit
Cut the bullshit, I don't need someone to point it out
When the sky is full of clouds
There's still no need to be all Captain Obvious, dude
Stop, dude (x15)

If you knew witty banter
I'd tolerate you, sure
But all you do is blabber
'Bout shit that I can see
(Yes, I know!)

Lordy, lordy, lordy
Kindly quit it, it's so annoying
I can't take it
But you don't stop trying to come up with real good lines
"Did you know that you have eyes"
There's no damn need to be all Captain Obvious

Lordy, lordy, lordy
Won't you stop it, so damn annoying
This is not wit
And it's not advice, I don't need someone to point out
When the sun is coming out
There is no need to be all Captain Obvious, dude
(Stop, dude (x15))

Stop, dude
It's depressing, dude (real sad dude)
Don't be Captain Obvious, please dude, stop dude, now dude
Please just stop it
It's really pointless

This was a pretty funny one about a topic that is very commonplace but hasn't been parodied before. I loved it!
Porfle Popnecker - March 08, 2012 - Report this comment
Wow, I noticed that you parodied a Pink song when you did this! Only your version was about someone who said really obvious things! So I voted and commented on it.
Blaydeman - March 13, 2012 - Report this comment
(Artistry) This is good... obviously.
Agrimorfee - March 13, 2012 - Report this comment
Tbh, this parody was more about you writing the song than listing examples of obviousness, which would have been far more interesting. Just my opinion.

(Artistry) Captain Obvious, isn't he in the Justice League? I'm pretty sure he's the one who says stuff like "Look! Here comes the bad guy!" Fun concept.

Lots of work went into this for the matchups, so well done there. Was this inspired by anyone in real life for you?

I have to be honest--I'm with Agri on this one. . .Some lines were good, but many didn't fit the theme for me.
