The Lyrics

I've never done the R.E.M. song of a similar title. So many words to rewrite and I don't have the patience. But this one, from 1963 and my experience on oldies stations, I know.
Why do you misread the Mayans?
William Miller was a bore.
Don't you know?
"It's the end of the world."
Not now, or in 1844.

Y2K was gonna kill us.
Or meteor from above.
Don't you know?
"It's the end of the world."
What's ended is your mind, my love.

You'll wake up in the morning and you'll wonder
why everything's the same as it was.
I can't understand
no, I can't understand
why you go in for all this buzz.

Why did that yutz Harold Camping
tell us apocalypse lie?
Don't he know?
It's the end of HIS world.
His credibility, goodbye.

Why do you not go on reading?
The sun will come up, so don't cry.
Don't you know?
"It's the end of the world."
Not THIS again!
You schmuck!
Goodbye!

Another Mayan adventure - still a few hours left. Thinking of your other parody today, maybe giving up on Tebow was the end of the (Jets) world.

Perfect OS - the mood makes it funny. 'Why everything's the same as it was' is a gift. Surprised no one else tried it (or did they?).

Nice historical reference to the Millerites in 1844. I used this tune a couple years ago for the Harold Camping phenomenon. The end of his world, credibility good bye sums him pretty well. I figured this end-time prophecy gig was going to be a hot topic today. My prophecy came true.

If the world ended, the one bomber undoubtedly would be the only survivor. ;D

I actually kind of hope that Camping makes another rpediction, I mean do you notice how a month after each of his predictions in 2011, Osama and whatshisface from Libya kicks the bucket. Maybe the next will take out al-Zawahiri.
