The Lyrics

I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
I’ve never left my house (You’ve never left your house)
I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
But my stink can still leave my house (Please use some deodorant, come on man)
I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
And that smell, it goes far (Man that smell is just very unreal)
I’ve never taken a shower, and I smell bad.

I’ve never taken a shower
In most houses, I am barred
I’ve never taken a shower
You could run, but you can’t run that far
I’ve never taken a shower
Maybe I could use some shampoo and just clean my hair
([Talking:]
“Hey, do you want to go and hang out? Like go back to my place and,”
“Uh no, you smell really, really bad
You smell like bacon and sausages and things. Ewwww.
Do you even own a shower? I mean cause you smell really, really bad”
“Well can you blame me?”
“Yeah”)

I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
I would rather date a goat (You have to take a bath, you’re cruel)
I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
I smell like an exotic pet (Like a llama or an emu)
I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
This smell drives people insane (Man you smell like elephant dung)
I’ve never taken a shower, and I smell bad.

I’ve never taken a shower
I haven’t bathed since I was just four
I’ve never taken a shower
People leave me cause they can’t take no more
I’ve never taken a shower
People would like me much better
(“But we wouldn’t like you much better.”
“Of course you would, I’d be adored.”
“No, just go buy some really good working soap right now.”
“That's right, all the fanciest smelling soaps. Mmmhmm.”)

I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
I’m lucky I can dress (but you just can not dress, you fool)
I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
I smell like a fart (Now come on man, that is disgusting)
I’ve never taken a shower (You’ve never taken a shower)
And I smell like a monkey (Yeah man, you really smell like a monkey)
I’ve never taken a shower, and I smell bad.

I’ve never taken a shower, I’ve never taken a shower
I’ve never taken a shower, I’ve never taken a shower
And I stink

You sir are the next Weird Al. This parody was brilliant.

This was just okay. I could tell this was an old one by you although the comment on here makes me assume you wrote it just last year. Still I can tell this one is probably much older than that because your pacing was off here and you used a lot of lines from the original and you're much better at writing parodies these days. Still this was not bad, I liked the elephant dung line haha

(Artistry) This was hard for me to read. The pacing was all over the place; I had a lot of trouble following it which took away from the comedy a lot. I went back and look at when you submitted this and it was 2007. I could definitely tell this was an earlier work of yours because you've grown so much as a writer since then. Please don't take this negatively because what is really shows is how highly I think of your writing now. Your heads and tails above this now.

I concur with our other Artistry commentators. It is also very hard to parody a song that is intentionally funny to begin with (which, oddly enough, you did so well with Cold Ethyl!).

(Artistry) I gotta agree with the other guys on this one. This is not one of your best, it was reptitive, didn't really go far enough with the topic at hand, and the stressing was off on the title line (I've neVER taKEN a shower). Not horrendously bad, but still could've used a lot of polishing.

All that and no mention of durian?
