The Lyrics

Parody 101 Lesson #6 - Any song instantly can become a parody by changing the words "rose" and "roses" to "roach" and "roaches."
If I left food out at night
Next time I turned on the light
I'd have a room full of roaches
If I spilled pop on the floor
There would soon be hundreds more
I'd have a room full of roaches

And if I didn't clean up
Every mess I've ever made
Then I would soon be needing
Over forty cans of Raid

Can't let them breed anymore
They'd survive atomic war
Can't have a room full of roaches
Got to keep my home clean and bright

(Instrumental break)

And if my drain was leaking
Every time I took a drink
There'd be lots of roaches sneaking
Underneath my kitchen sink

So I'll change my Roach Motel
And I'll give those vermin hell
Can't have a room full of roaches
Got to keep my home clean and bright
Don't come out when I kill the light!

Oh, that is SOOO brilliant. Try writing a parody yourself rather than your fantastic intellectual reviews, jackass!

Thank you for removing Smegma's offensive remarks. Just criticism, witty observations, and even disagreements over views are one thing...slime like that has no place here. One problem...after deleting Smegma's trash, it now it looks like my response was to AFW's comment! ;D Please delete my now-unnecessay answer. ;D
