The Lyrics

I know a man that wants to get into marathon running. So I wrote this for him. Cuz I think he's crazy!
[Man puts in his Ipod and begins running]

Verse 1: I want to run marathons
I want what they do!
Just run forever with my
New shoes!
Get more exercise, maybe
Get in good shape!
Just wanna break that seal
Of tape!

Chorus: I’m rubbed in awkward places
Rubbing’s no fun!
Got chafed up nipples on my…
Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!

Verse 2: My knees are burning greatly
On mile ten!
I’ll never walk one more step
Not again!
I have this throbbing aching
Up to my neck!
My clothes got dense and weighty
With sweat!

Chorus: My balls are red and swollen
But I’m not done!
Been here forever on this
Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!

(Loooooooong run!)
(Loooooooong run!)

[Guitar solo]
[Montage of man running passed different places]

Chorus: Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!
Long run! Long run!

[Fade out]
[Man collapses on the ground from exhaustion]

Perfect title switch! Many good lines! As a marathoner and Kiss fan I really wish I'd thought of this first!

(Just for the record though, you don't run a race in new shoes, that's a recipe for chafing disaster, you run it in your best shoes, which would have fit the line just as well).

Agree with PA--great idea.

Thanks Peter! Yeah I know runners NEVER run in new shoes. My sister is a runner too. The point of that line is to express how little the character knows about long distnace running. He just wants the good things that come from it, and doesn't even think about how hard it is.

This was a pretty clever idea. I never thought about doing a parody about running before... Because I hate running! The only time you'll ever see me running is if I'm being chased and still I don't need to run fast just faster than the slowest guy in my group.

(Artistry) And to think all of this marathon nonsense could've been avoided if that one Grecian twonk had had the sense to ask for a horse to deliver the victory message instead of pelting the 26 miles solo and then dropping dead. Kind of a simple parody, but still very enjoyable. 555 bottles of water!

(Artistry) And when he's 40 and getting both knees replaced he'll still be saying that running is good for you. Fun idea and execution.

Great opening line, followed by a lousy second line. But great nonethless, cause it really matches the physical intensity of the OS. (Er, so to speak): ;)

Reading through the parodies its become blatantly obvious what makes Kiss hard to parody, most their songs give you so little to work with, you just didn't have enough to 'run' with the idea I'm afraid.
