The Lyrics

OK, so the pedants may point out the difference between a malapropism and a mixed metaphor.. but there's plenty of each in here. The movie buffs may spot the occasional quote..
Mrs Malaprop used words
With a definite style
e.g. A bit like an allegory
On the banks of the Nile

You had something to say in front of the board
And the words wouldn't come out right
Nearly died from embarrassment
Nearly died..
When you went and tried to say:

Every cloud has its thorn
Still waters run before the dawn
I'm not the brightest bulb in the drawer
Every cloud has its thorn

What the ...

I’m watching everything you do
With a fine-tuned comb.
I wouldn't be caught dead in there, with a
Ten-foot pole
It sticks out like a sore throat
A loose tongue spoils the broth
It looks like the cows have come home to roost
He's not the one with his ass in a noose
You said:

Every cloud has its thorn
You gotta take the ball by the horns
No use beating him over the head, with a dead horse
Every cloud has its thorn

That may sound great on paper
You're not pointing blame
And they say when life throws you curve balls
Then you make, make lemonade

[Solo ..well, something with all the right notes, not necessarily in the right order]

You know you could've lost your job that night
Didn't know what to say
Don't you know HR guys move
In mysterious ways

For now I hear your company has gone
And gave you that promo-shee-yon
You're management material 'cause
You're forever mixing metaphors

You say
Every cloud has its thorn
We're gonna.. get locked into a corn [-er]
Oral contracts ain't worth what they're written on
Every cloud has its thorn

Oral contracts are definitely not worth what they are written on, but this parody is worth 555.
