The Lyrics

You know, plastic wrap, saran wrap, glad wrap, that thin plastic stuff you used to wrap up food before putting it in the fridge to keep it fresh longer...even though just trying to use the stuff makes most people's heads explode.
Whenever I'm in urgent need
Of using plastic wra-ap
I try not to cry
Because it always ticks me off
Never works ri-ight

Have you ever tried to use cling fi-ilm?
The friggin' stuff refuses to stick
Where you actually want it to stick to
Damn this impossible cling fi-ilm

Never a reprieve from this damn unrelenting
Film, and though the package says it's "painless"
That's a lie that's most outrageous

The part that's the most frustrating
Is when it wants to stick to itself
I try to remove it from itself
But that just makes it start again

I wish I didn't need this cling fi-ilm
But I don't want my food in the fridge
To dry out and be less tasty and so
I must wrestle with this cling fi-ilm

I just can't believe that this infuriating
Film has not received so much complaining
Or at least grass-roots campaigning
That the company's relented
And fix wha-at makes us demented

Know it's not worth insanity
It's only saran wrap
Why are there all these names for cling fi-ilm?
Why not just cut the crap and call it
Just-tryna-save-my-food"-type fi-ilm

I would use tin foil instead of this annoying
Film, but the noise it makes is quite grating
And in summer it's quite blinding, screw it
I'd rather boil my head instead of using
This insipid film abomination
But I don't want food mutation
And so though my soul is draining
I'll keep go-oing, stop the raging

If anyone doesn't know this song from Homestar Runner, they're either too young, hardcore TMBG fans or LIARS.

I never thought that I would see a song about Plastic Wrap but now I have.... I guess that's a good thing right? Haha. Very original topic and we all can relate!

Original topic, that started out kinda slow...but really kicked in with the "why so many names?" verse, which really made me laugh. Overall, a pretty solid spoof.

These things are easy to tangle too, but this parody wraps it up well.

I too know the pains of using plastic wrap. My solution- EAT EVERYTHING. No leftovers? No need to use cling film. *chuckle* Good parody, though. I'd be the guy at the table laughing at you trying to save your food.

Weird Al and I would suggest you stick with foil (FOI-LLLL!!)

(Artistry) I liked the unique topic and you did a great job with it, the rhyming was pretty impressive in this one. Nice work, one of my favorites of yours in a while.
