The Lyrics

That priceless moment of "what the hell did I DO last night?"...
Didn't think I got that drunk
But now it seems that I was
And right now it's pretty damn dark
Oh I...I woke up in a cramped spa-ace

When I move something creaks
My head's right next to my feet
What the hell happened? No-one here to tell me
Oh I...all I smell's me in this pla-ace

One other smell
Comes to me, a woodish smell
This ain't right (isn't right), this is shite (because I'm)
I'm stuck in a crate!
Crate!
Great!
Crate!

All I did was have a few drinks
'Kay, maybe a lot
How'd this happen to me, and where'd I get this thong?
Oh I...I smell marker on my fa-ace

And something feels wet
It wasn't me, that I know (oh no)
It's salty (smells salty), oh, I see (that's just peachy)
At sea in a crate!
Crate!
Great!
Crate!

Hell of a myst'ry, needs solvin'
Try putting the bits back together
Can swim, won't drown, my phone's charged for days
I just wish my knees weren't jammed in my face
Damn crate!

This su-su-sucks
This su-su-sucks
This su-su-su-sucks
Stupid booze-up
Now I'm screwed up

Did I make a bet?
I do that when drunk, I know (oh no)
"Who'll bet I'll (fit inside)
This smelly, one-airholed and watertight
Crate!"
Great!
Crate!
Oh no...
Crate!
Great!
Crate!
No, no, no, no, no, no...

Well, at least he didn't wake up in a smelly crate adrift at sea with a complete stranger inside with him. That'd just be awkward.

Good job...I always hear this song as "CAKE!" I won't be doing that for this Artistry Round, since you used this.

Oops! Thanks to Agrimorfee for filling me in on the fact that I didn't leave a comment. I knew I read it and I liked it a lot. Loads of details which made this parody pop!

Very funny story that went along nicely with the OS. "Who will fit in this smelly, one-airholed, and watertight crate?"...sounds like a pretty solid premise for a parody to me. Nice work!

Great use of the OS, TCOP. Great pacing and funny story. I'm still humming the parody in my head "Stuck in a CRATE..."

(Artistry) Simple and fun idea. It read almost theatrical in tone, which I kind of enjoyed. It set the scene up for me. I want to know more of the story here! LOL! What happened and what happens next. Great work!
