Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Part of my "Something to Believe In" self-challenge. How could you destroy my rug? Seriously, the rest of the house is like a showroom, how is just the rug busted?
Damn, how could you, bro?
Damaged rug (that ain't right, buddy)

I thought that I could trust ya with a stay in my house, dude
And, well, it seems that your big promise was the near-truth
Walls are intact, no broken, no broken, broken glass
There's still a way of closin' the door completely, fact
I don't see clouds of dust, the dishes are completely clean
No left-out snacks, but there was somethin' that smelled bad to me
And now that I can see the disaster layin' there
I must take back the kudos I gave for no stray hairs

What a sight, so many stains (many stains)
You comin' back? No way, asshole

Damaged rug
How is it the only thing you trashed? I'm shocked
Jaw is hangin' open at the damaged rug
Wanna check the notes I left you, loopholes suck
You're payin' for that, the damaged rug
The damaged ru-ru-rug
The damaged ru-ru-rug
You confuse me
With the state of that (the damaged rug)

How did you go and burn these holes with no ash stained around?
Floor is pristine, well done, that takes some skill, no doubt
State of it is apallin', that's what I'm callin' that
I didn't say to keep it clean? Don't be such an ass

Just 'cause I did not explain (not explain)
Won't save you, you will pay for this

Damaged rug
Pretty sure that "look after my house" in part
Means all that's inside, hence why the damaged rug
Is makin' me so mad, shouldn't look so smug
Are you proud of that? The damaged rug
The damaged ru-ru-rug (oh-oh-oh)
The damaged ru-ru-rug
Smug and douchey
You will pay for that, the damaged rug

Ooh, la-la-la, ooh, la-la-la (the damaged ru-ru-rug)
Ooh, la-la-la, ooh, la-la-la, ooh-ooh (the damaged ru-ru-rug)
Ooh, la-la-la, ooh, la-la-la (thought you'd dupe me?)
Ooh, la-la-la, pay me

Damaged rug (you jerk)
Ev'ry meal was had without a plate upon
The poor thing, never seen a more damaged rug (damaged rug)
Used it as an ashtray, but you don't smoke, bud (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
You're really a prat, poor damaged rug (damaged rug)
Poor damaged ru-ru-rug (ooh-ooh-ooh, yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah)
Poor damaged ru-ru-rug
'Less I see huge green
Stay far away, man, poor damaged rug

Those of you who have been reading my works for a while are probably surprised that I didn't make the "only the rug was damaged" thing into the big twist at the end. Not as surprised as I was when I went into the parody with that twist in mind and then ending up blowing it in the second line of the first verse, thus resulting in me deciding to refocus the parody on the "why" rather than the "what".
