The Lyrics

Guess which instrument this dude hates?
Man, I've got a gripe 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
They're an instrument that I abhor
I can't bear them, it's true-ue-ue
So obnoxious, stop it du-ude
Ma-an, I've got some gripes 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
Really hate them, it's the tru-u-u-uth

When I hear that screeching ho-o-onk
I start begging it will stop real quickly
That neverending caterwau-au-aul
Is a total musical trave-esty-y-y
Never sounded good, can't lie-ie-ie
Don't think that I'll stop despi-ising it, you see-ee
Unadulterated crap
Got no trips to Scotland planned, obviou-ously-y
I remember
When I first hea-eard
That noise in my noggin
Wanted to dislodge i-i-it
With a large brick

And so, I've got a gripe 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
Shitty instrument that I abhor
I can't bear them, it's true-ue-ue
I don't care if I sound ru-u-ude

Please shut it

Could say I'm an asshole
To dismiss culture with su-u-uch gusto-o
But I still think it blows
I'd rather eat old haggis, a-a-also-o
May say that I've heard them twi-i-ice
I've heard them a few million ti-imes (my ears bleed)
From cinema
Games and TV
I-I'm utterly si-ick o-of
Ev'ry damn part of it
Bagpipes just suck

Said that I've got a gripe 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
Heinous instrument that I abhor
I can't bear (I can't bear) them, it's true-ue-ue
Cause they butcher ev'ry tu-une
So-o, I've got these gripes 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
Like a bag of cats, that I abhor (bag of cats, can't bea-ear)
Yeah, that sounds (sounds) awful, du-u-ude
So stop practising, you foo-oo-ool

Yes, my list of gripes 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
That dumb instrument that I abhor (really feel it's lame)
Have been flared cause of you-ou-ou
Playing all night like a too-ool
My long-held gripes 'bout bagpi-i-ipes
They're exacerbated by you, dork (put that thing awa-ay)
I can't bear when it too-oo-oots (when it toots)
Cut it out right now, you too-ool
A-all my long-lived gripes 'bout bagpi-i-ipes (wish you would not play) (all my bagpipe gripes)
Aren't helped by you playing Braveheart's score (it's annoying, stop)
Might burn down (take my matches out) that thing soo-oo-oon (now)
If you ever dare resu-u-ume

Dirty bit.

Conqy Boy! The pipes, the pipes are fiving! Great job. These KR songs are a blast to parody.

when the bagpipes are crying everybody close by enough to hear them cries too! 5's

It's one thing to knock Donald Trump, but when you start dissing bagpipes, you're gettin' on the fightin' side o' me. I think any tune sounds better on bagpipes.
