The Lyrics

I'm going to partially serious here. Because I know this topic affects a lot of people and I hope that one day the basis of this parody does come true. Hope you like it.
Verse 1: Hello nitro my old friend
I’ve used you in an ex-plo-sion
Because of people softly creeping
Robbed my lab while I was sleeping
My division will not accept thievery
Top secrecy
We use compounds of science

Verse 2: Twelve restless days I did react
As was said in my contract
Try to give the world a new hope
I stared my eyes into the microscope
When a man broke in
Got doused with liquid nitrogen
A defense, of my compounds of science

Verse 3: And in that lab I did create
One compound that could change our fate
People dying for an answer
People dying full of cancer
People praying long
That’s seldom ever heard
And that’s absurd
‘Til my compound of science

Verse 4: “Folks” said I, “The end is here!”
No more lives will cancer veer
Come inside so I might cure you
From inside your ailment clears you
And this cure, like heaven’s graces fell
And ringing all the bells of science

Verse 5: And the people cheered and roared
Seems that science fin’lly scored
And these men called themselves “smarties”
Think this cure was a bit tardy
And the men said, “The meds for this sickness,
Were developed by this man here.”
And the people cheered
Be thankful for compounds of science…

I loved this - it was really moving. Perfect OS for the subject matter too - nice to see it from the other side for a change. A well-deserved 555.

I agree with Wendy...creative idea and follow-thru

There's nothing wrong with a serious parody. This was extremely well written and it's very hard to make a topic like this funny without offending too many people so you took the safe route and I respect you for that.

Kudos for taking on a difficult song and taking it into an unexpected direction.

(Artistry) Very well written parody here, I loved it. Though if you hadn't decided to be serious, this title would've made a perfect theme song for Dr. Insano...not expecting you to know who that is, of course, I'm just being me. 555!

Ooooookay. . ..I don't really have a strong comment on this one Blayde, sorry I just didn't get any real strong reaction out of this, good-bad-ugly-or inbetween . . . It was written well:)
