The Lyrics

I was hoping I wasn't going to feel like this any more. I have a depression like thing that puts a big load of guilt and stuff on me that makes me want to just jump off a cliff. My mom keeps doing things to me like pointing her finger at me and telling me I cant do anything right. I got to remember that this is her who keeps putting me down.
Been shown the world through a negative view
I'm a troubled lost girl cant you tell
Been told I'm worthless and yes I've been D***ed
Though my heart takes the pain the more knowledge I gain

You're screwin' yourself do you not believe it
You're screwin' yourself how can you not see it
What made you be such an angry fool mom
I wont let you put the blame on me
What now my life is blown up like a bomb
What did you expect me to become anyway

You're screwin' yourself do you not believe it
You're screwin' yourself how can you not see it
Shut up, I'm up on both feet
dumb minds can not defeat don't you know it
Shut up no more will I say
If I d***ed you back I would blow it

You're screwin' yourself do you not believe it
You're screwin' yourself how can you not see it
Shut up, I'm up on both feet
dumb minds can not defeat don't you know it
Shut up no more will I say
If I d***ed you back I would blow it

Great parody. I actually have a friend who currently suffers from depression so this would make a lot of sense:)

I have a suggestion for you. If you need some illustrations of how to be funny as a female parodist, you should check out the works of Arwen, who was, without a doubt, the funniest female parodist on this site. She has 240 submissions which places her about 50th from the top on the Authors list .. From her comments and the gist of her parodies, it seems she had to deal with issues of self esteem and depression as well
