The Lyrics

I wrote this in december and now I'm finally putting it on Amiright where it belongs
Uno, dos, tres, catorce
I can't type any of those

Typing's hard
As heck I'm gonna break
That pesky feline's neck
The keyboard's worth a bunch of
Bucks it's wrecked
I might just cry
Or brawl with walls
Did not expect
This total bummer

Oh no, oh no (What's up)
My cat just ate the QWERTY row (Why is that?)
It seems to think it is a billy goat
Since some fool spilled the cat food on the keys

Midnight, email, he said
And if I miss deadlines
Once more I'm dead
I'm done for
Since the boss will have my head
I guess I'll go to sleep
And stay in bed

I had a great scoop
With national appeal
Now it seems I'll have
To plead for cash for meals
Somebody was stupid
Somebody was stupid

Oh no, oh no (What's up)
My cat just ate the QWERTY row (Why is that?)
It seems to think it is a billy goat
Since some fool spilled the cat food on the keys

Food bag
Stays Far
From Keys

I'll admit, I'll admit it's my fault
I'll admit, I'll admit it's my fault
I'll admit, I'll admit it's my fault
Just if I know no one
But me hears those words

Oh no, oh no
My cat just ate the QWERTY row
I won't be making any dough
Since some fool spilled the cat food
I just cannot believe it
I just cannot believe it
It was me

You have a cat that eats keyboards? You should get into showbiz, Ethan...:-) 555

DKTOS but the imagery was hilarious and the word choices were creative. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on pacing and vote 5-5-5.

Nice parody. But will anyone not substitute a place called Vertigo with a place called Kokomo into a parody and get it over with! I can't not hear that when the song is on the radio.

I DKTOS, so I didn't vote as I haven't listened to U2 in a while and sadly have none of their (mostly) great CD's. My cat tends to eat strange things as well, not the keyboard, but I ruined 2 of them, one from smashing it after 19 hours of checking for hard drive/defrag errors ( 60 GB takes a while to scan ) and the other from spilling a beer on it ( don't drink anymore though ). BTW, Is there any truth to the rumor that the guy who invented the keyboard was named QWERTY YUIOP? Sounds like an urban legend, but I've heard stranger names.

Hilarious title. And for all the parodies I've read about a cat eating half a keyboard... this one is equal 3rd!

A absured idea lovingly executed. 555

Q05 8 months later and I still haven't heard this song, but it is funny with an unforgettable title.

What do you get? - Ethan's repaired keyboard!!!

Also, there's probably an "overcocked cat / alphabet soup" joke here, but I can't come up with it... :-)
