The Lyrics

I don't know if you have it in America, but Down Under at least, Panadol is a major brand of pain reliever. In my personal experience, however, it never bloody works. Hence, parody!
Panadol, supposed headache remedy
Panadol, why do you never work for me?
Panadol, I pop a few, the pain, you do not quell
Oh panadol, my head still hurts like hell

My brain is sore, cause it found the cupboard door
Can't rely on panadol

My headache started today
Douchebags irritatin' me
My headache brewed and asked for you to end it's misery
Panadol, you had the gall
To advertise relief
Should sue for bollocks advertising, jeez

My head's still sore, lots of a-holes at the store
Where I bought my panadol
Oh panadol, why can't you please help me?
Because my head's hurting like hell
I thought you could help

I tell you, panadol, won't take another call from my ex Sue
She just kept yelling, think she was drunk
My head throbbed all the way through
I should've hung up, cut the line
It would've meant less work for you
Feels like my brain's gonna leak
And spill onto my new shoes

My brain's still sore, been three hours or maybe four
Ain't kicked in yet, panadol
I took about four, yet I think my head hurts more
Tempted to try alcohol
Oh panadol, don't make me do that, please
I cannot stand the taste of beer
It might work, I fear

Why won't you work for me?
Don't drive me to booze, please

Sad fact of the day: I only know the word "quell" from an episode of the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.

I liked the ending on this one because although I never heard of these pills before I like how you wrapped it into becoming the original song. Like before he discovered alcohol he was using these pills are they weren't working at all.

Totally agree with Matty, I like the foreshadowing into the OS (intentional or not), it's really funny. Surprisingly, never heard the OS before (and I'm a pretty big Barenaked Ladies fan), and I think you did a great job with this! Nice work!

(Artistry) Having your parody lead into the OS was really cool, loved that! The humor was present, but not over-the-top hilarious. It was all kind of the same joke. Even some of the lines are extremely similar. For example, you said a few variations of "my brain/head is sore" and "my head hurts like hell". Those phrases appear several times throughout the parody. I think there could've been funnier ways to get that sentiment across. Still a solid parody, though.

Blaydeman echoes my sentiments.

This is what I like about your parodies, it covers what we have to deal with in everyday lives.
