Parody Song Title:

"Can't You Hold Your Breath For Nine"

Parody Written by:

That Fat Kid from the Goonies

The Lyrics

This is a tribute to David Blaine's 2-hour failure
You're a street magician
Trying deadly feats
Things that only the greatest man
Could ever complete
So we watched your program
Where you challenged death
You were inside a filled fish tank
Trying to hold your breath

So can't you hold your breath for nine (for nine)
It is not a game
But you have to complete this mega stunt
Or we'll hate your name
So can't you hold your breath for nine (for nine)
Is it hard to do?
It's enough to make rich and middle-class
Make huge bets on you

You have conquered challenges
That don't seem to nice
After being buried alive
And frozen inside ice
You will have to do this
You must have the powers
If not I will be very mad
I watched for two hours

It's enough to make rich and middle-class
Make huge bets on you

Excellently done... I did a Blaine-basher myself after his glass box stunt, so can really approve of this one :-)

Well written and magically delicious, 5s
