The Lyrics

This is actually a true story, not due to me, but my mom is terrorfied of heights.

You forced me to climb this mountain!
I’m going to end up dead
You’re trying to kill me buddy
I’ll trip and fall off the ledge (Whoa!)
I can not stand this altitude
I am no bird of flight
I’ll lose my balance and tumble
And then comes the bright light!

I am afraid of heights!
I am afraid of heights!

You’re so nuts!
Your mind is bizarre
I’ve got a large bruise
And torn my jeans too
And I’m done
You think this is fun
I’d rather be stunned
With a taser… that’s right
That lame hike
Made me whine
Like a small girl, bro
Small punk
You are a bastard
And I tossed my boots
Because I’m so scared of heights!

(Bag check? That blows! Groan…)

I wanted a seat near the aisle
A window was not my pick (Shit!)
The airplane bookers are dumb, Oy!
And now I think I’ll be sick (Puke!)
Final Destination’s our video
Is this how I’m going to die? (f*ck!)
The passengers hear me grumble
Because I’m scared of heights!

We are too gosh darn high
Weed’s the only high I like

We’re still low, but
This won’t last long
The 6 O’clock news
Will feature me, screwed
Eyes clamped shut
These planes are no fun
And now they are shunned
Because I sit here and cry
I grip tight
Skin’s gone white
So now I’m pale too
Say, “Cut!”
Just like a film star
And then I’ll be through
Because I’m frightened by heights!

Skyscrapers scare
Me to the bone
Your cattle calls just make me swear
This coaster’s hill
Is way too tall
I’ll skip the faire and play baseball

So go strut
Go climb that rockface
Cause you’ll become ooze
You’ll be deceased soon
I’ll stay put
Won’t scale canyons
Not for a whole ton
Of cash and doubloons… That bites
In my mind
Guys don’t fly
Not like those owls do
Won’t be among stars
Like astronaut dudes
Because I’m so scared of heights

No, no!
No, no!

I don’t want to skydive
Cause I’m too scared
My parachute won’t work right
It’s knot tied
And I’ll die!
Death isn’t cool, nope
Keep shut!
Avoided so far
That bridge might be loose
And then I’ll plummet in spite

Wha-wha-wha-wha-wha!!! Splat!

Good write, Squire Matthias, i dislike plane rides, too! and my feeling is only intensified by how the flights are managed by the current Airline regime!

Very Good. See you at the crowning!

(Idol) Holy crap Matthias, despite being a relative light-weight song, you've done more with this than I could have imagined this song being. In fact, I think it's fittingly your best of the competition to date. I loved the Final Destination reference for a plane ride, you really played on the original well. The rhyme scheme was superb, and the pacing was almost paced word for word to the original, really good write, really funny--very hard to even come up with nit-picks on this one. . .Excellent job Matthias, what a way to cap off the competition, I think you took this a little more seriously than you lead on in other threads--I mean, I've seen what you come up with when you rush something or did it just because you have to. . .very well done. (Paula Abdul unintentional imitation is complete)

You did quite a lot with the short lines, and the "da dah..." parts as well. I liked the pun "It’s knot tied". Excellent work here.

SOTM - DKTOS so I'll trust you on pacing, but this is quite funny and a good concept.

(SOTM) Epic effort switching up the choruses each time, you canvassed many jokes within, sir. Godo stuff.

(SOTM) Wow... That was epic! TMGLTM! You might wanna beware though, because the SOTM winner will have to claim his or her prize from upon Mt. Everest. 555

(SOTM) This parody scales to new heights the second time through. Brilliant!

(SOTM) An absolute Matthias masterpiece! Tight pacing, mega-lols - it's distilled awesome. 555!

(SOTM) great work with the short lines here Matthias, and there's a lot of material you managed to come up with for the subject - fave line was "We are too gosh darn high" - yeah if only the plane was a few hundred metres lower, we'd all be safer! - LOL - 555

(SOTM) Wow, does that Pink song go on for that long? Funny song, I agree with Stu, great job coming up with so many things on the subject!
