The Letter People

Parody Song Title:


The Lyrics

This is installment #3 of our 26-part "Alphabet Soup" project: using the main-character songs from the "Letter People" series as a basis for parodies unrelated to children's TV. The topic may be a bit dated this time, but how many of us WEREN'T afraid of the millennium bug on New Year's Eve of '99? (PS from Jared: Sorry to butt in, Inga. Just need to tell everyone that this got eaten by the system on its first submission, causing it to appear out of intended order, hence this being #3 and Missed A Hex being #4. Enjoy the parody, guys!)
Ticking, clock's ticking
'cause Y2K's to blame


Run for your lives, it's Y2K
It's gonna take our lives away
Go lock your basements,
go out and store some cans
You might just be the Omega Man

This ticking countdown's far too quick
You'll die if you're not on the stick
Forget the fuss, it bit the dust
With Y2K, that ticking thing
Panic was the biggest thing

Ticking, clocks ticking,
hysterics were insane...
Ticking, still ticking,
and Y2K's to blame!


It never did a single--
OH! Never did a single thing.
4 down, 22 to go!
