The Lyrics

Don't you hate it when you're tryna talk to a dude but you can't understand a word he says because he sounds like he's a 60-pack-a-day man? Well, this dude does. Enjoy!
Beggin', don't speak

Please stop talkin' to me, bro-o-o
Want you to shut up, huh
Nothin' wrong with the conte-e-ent
Your timbre's too rough, huh
Heard right and I'll repeat it

Raspy voice, can't hear a thing, huh
With that raspy voice
Raspy voice, too hard, it grates, huh
Hate your raspy voice

Take a lozenge, not that hard
Might even buy one for you, huh
Ooh-ooh yeah
Though you're so raspy, that you mi-i-ight
Need more than a few, huh
'Bout twenty-two
Uh huh, sore throat, mate

Raspy voice, it's so grating, huh
Hate your raspy voice
Raspy voice, tough on my brain, huh
Fix your raspy voice
Raspy voice, might sound like Batman, true, huh
Badass raspy voice
Raspy voice, can't hold conversations with it, du-u-ude, huh
Hate your raspy voice, ooh

You sound like Nick Nolte
Pretty close

Somethin' to soothe (so)
The gruffness in your neck (too right)
Please, I implore, heard you grumblin' for too long (ooh ooh yeah)
Wish you could tell how you got this way
Do you swallow rocks whole?
That theory might be crazy
But dammit
How else are you so raspy?

Raspy voice, my ears, it stings
Hate your raspy voice
Raspy voice, you sound deranged, huh
Cure your raspy voice

Raspy voice, speech it's blocking
Da-a-amn you-ou-our raspy voice
Want to say things, I see, uh
Can't hear those things, uh
Sucks, your raspy voice, uh

Pain in the arse

Might be thinkin' awesome thoughts
Raspy voice!
But can't express them at all?
Raspy voice!
Though I may seem pissed off, dude
I'm annoyed!
In my own way, tryna help you
Raspy voice!
Raspy voice
Here, have some mints, oh
Still got raspy voice?

Can't remember if I've used "timbre" in a parody before, but if I haven't, cross it off the list of words I've always wanted to use in a parody because they make me feel smart.

The Dark Knight is a gritty continuation of Batman....and his ongoing battle with throat cancer.
