The Lyrics

If there's anything I hate in any kind of game, but especially board games, it's having to start from square one. Again. And again. And again.
This die is a jerk, for me it never works
Ev'ry time I roll it along
I'll never reach the end of this board game, my friends
Just laugh and joke which I feel's kinda wrong
They land on the spots that boost their points a lot
Then they land and get bonuses galore
But all I get is this: a one-way return trip
To the startin' position of the board

Sent back to start, I hate to play from start
When ev'rybody else zooms past
They won't return to start, I hate to play from start
Cause I'm not happy here in last, ooh-ooh

I'm not movin' far, and yes, I'll take this hard
Because this isn't simply limited
To today, dealt with this since I was a young kid
It's what drove ninety percent of my fits
Whether Monopoly or Game of Life, you see
I'm stuck in the first quarter of the game
Don't know if it's the dice, if my luck is just shite
Or somethin' here's been doctored, not okay

Sent back to start, I hate to play from start
Gets real predictable and bland
When I'm sent back to start, I hate to play from start
The one card that I can draw, it's crap, ooh-ooh

Sent back to start, I hate to play from start
I don't know how you get me back
To play this from the start, I hate to play from start
Dude, can you not hear me yellin' "Pass!"?
Sent back to start, I hate to play from start
I swear it's some prank on my ass
To force me back to start, I hate to play from start
Man, are you sure that the card says that? Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh


Don't take me back to start, take my horse to the old town road.

Sorry, but this a "sorry" parody of a "sorry" game. Or it could be a real "headache" to stay out of "trouble". I do share your pain about being knocked all the way back to the starting line. Great job and a trio of 5's for you!
