The Lyrics

Popped into my head.
Gumdrops stop fallin' on my bed
And just like a kid whose teeth are too wide for his head
Bothers me a bit
Those gumdrops stop fallin' on my bed, they stop fallin'

So I just did me some sulkin' on the run
And I said I didn't like the way how it was done
Weepin' with a sob
Those gumdrops stop fallin' on my bed, they stop fallin'

And there's nothing I know
The fruits they send to greet me won't elate me
It will be long till crappiness pops up to beat me

Gumdrops stop fallin' on my bed
But that doesn't mean my mouth will soon be turnin' bad
Eating's just for me
'Cause I'll always gonna save the drops by rationin'
Because I'm sweet
Nothin's worryin' me

[trumpet]

It will be long till crappiness pops up to beat me

Gumdrops stop fallin' on my bed
But that doesn't mean my mouth will soon be turnin' bad
Eating's just for me
'Cause I'll always gonna save the drops by rationin'
Because I'm sweet
Nothin's worryin' me
Here you go.

Whimsical and cheerily odd and quirky. I like it. Some awkward pacing here and there - "rationin" for "complaining" - IMHO and I do think "I'll always gonna" can be tweaked - or was that intentional? Still 555's for a nice wake-up experience on a dull morning.

Sounds like a kid's dream come true.

You can't eat just one.

It *is* rather charmingly quirky! (And believe me, I know charmingly quirky-- I'm on this site, after all!) :D

Good parody of a horribly saccharine OS.

Call me dumb, but I don't quite understand this parody. I felt like the pacing may have been off a smidge, but I haven't heard the original in a while, so I still gave you a 5 for that. 545.

SOTM - Sorry, but I have to agree with some of the other comments. Some awkward pacing and phrasing, and a little hard to understand what you're trying to convey. If I had to guess, I'd say that all those issues might stem from tryng too hard to parallel the phrasing of the OS.

SOTM - A little "gooy" in spots, but fun idea!
Peter Andersson - October 15, 2009 - Report this comment
As others have pointed out it's a little hard to understand the "story" here, maybe it's an early Halloween story about how much candy you got? Anyway I'd like to mention that this could be an OS you should keep trying at, IMHO it's one of those I learned a lot from, did at least four of my first one hundred to this song. And (again IMHO) it's one of those you're not necessarily bound to rhyme the title line's last word with head ("crop circles' forming on my farm" is my own favorite take on it) as long as you're strict with the "XX is/are YY on/at my ZZ" formula instead.

I've done sound-alike works like this, and there are some excellent instances of your sub rhyming with the original word in this. Sometimes a hard sell, but I had fun.

I get it that some don't get this parody. I don't either except that it is just what it appears to be - messing with the lyrics. Quite silly and quirky - as far as pacing being off, I couldn't really tell - seemed alright to me.

SOTM - I thought the pacing was okay too. Quirky is a good word to describe it, I enjoyed it.

(SOTM) I'm going to be lazy here and say "what Chris said". I had no idea what exactly what you were saying here.

Started with an interesting, fairly quirky title sub, but didn't seem to know what to do with the story.

No offense, but I echo Phil...

I hate it when I'm late commenting...because I feel like everything I want to say has been said before. Sad. This one didn't do it for me...I was just confused. And that could be because it's 1:20 in the morning...I can't say. I didn't think the pacing was bad, though...just the story line...
