The Lyrics

Three nights before I wrote this parody, I had a bizarre dream. I was watching "The Simpsons Movie" on the FOX Movie Channel when they broke in with a special report that David Bowie had accidentally killed himself with a staple gun. I was shocked out of my mind!
Watched the Simpsons Movie on FMC
When a special report came and surprised me
David Bowie died in an accident
He shot himself with just a staple gun, but then
I woke up and it was a dream
Thank God it wasn't as real as it seemed!

Woke up, woke up, I'm glad that's over
Woke up, woke up, I'm glad that's over
Woke up, woke up, woke up, I'm glad it was a dream
I'm glad it was a dream
I'm glad it was a dream
I'm glad it was a dream

I'm a casual Bowie fan
But it was like being hit by a pan
I didn't see the point in it anyway
When everyone would have found out the next day
You can say it was too much caffeine
But I have no idea just what caused that dream

Woke up, woke up, I'm glad that's over (6x)

I guess you can blame REM
Rapid eye movement, not the band
I'd be sad if he was dead
And all this grief would be on my head
Green Day may be my fave music
But that dream had me worried sick

Woke up, woke up, I'm glad that's over (12x)

(Woke up, woke up, I'm glad that's)
Glad it was a dream

I WISH this was what happened with Michael Jackson!

Yeah, me too! I also wish that MJ's death was just a dream so he'd still be alive and singing.

In light of the recent tragedy, I take this parody back. It's not funny anymore.
