The Lyrics

I'm at
The big day I've been dreading
My head sweats with worry
Extra time spent in the shower
I must go. . .
I love meat, but she likes carrots
My fears I cannot quell
Oh hell I'll articulate what's built
Fake, Wrong. She don't love me. . .

One night, drank lots of ale
Was just about out cold
She asked me that stupid question, Could not think though

Marriage would mean an end to my youth
and to my independence
My feet are getting cold, afraid
What the-hell did I say????

Think she lied
She has an evil eye
I think she'll kill me, yes I'm scared of the bride

Must be teasing, can't be telling the truth
Wait what's this in the cupboard
Plans to control my brain, I say RUN!

Breaking ties
By train, bus, car or flight
I'll hit the highway and I'm ditchin' my bride.

(She's one scary ho)
ditchin' my bride.
(Runnin' out the door)
I need a ride.
(Please just help me bro)
She must have lied
(She won't get me though)
I can hang glide
(Don't Know where to go)
I'll run and hide
(Leave before she knows)
I'll keep my pride
(and keep all my dough)
Ditchin' My Bride!

(Need to get out now)

Kinda like this part Change? "Wait what's this in the cupboard/ Plans to control my brain, I say RUN!" lol (I loved that part by the way Dave because it was completely out there!) You're quickly on your way of parodying every Green Day song out there kind of like Rick D. did with The Beatles (except for the fact that Green Day sounds 100% better than The Beatles)

Take 555's with you to escape from your marital nightmare!

If I had a quarter for every time I got hitched because I was drunk, I'd have a nickel.

You had me on the home page on the title switch alone, but was expecting Vanity Fair's song of the same name, which predates this one by 28 years. Seemed like they stole the title -- lyrics are entirely different, and probably the tune (DKTOS). Well, Fives for the title sub anyway.

Very good, Dave. Do one of We Made You by Eminem.

I'll accept that challenge. . .but I can't give a time frame--coming up with an idea to a song like that can be difficult, but expect it before the end of this month.

ABC- EXCELLENT JOB! I love the original song and this is a great idea! 555 disappointed attendees.

Reminds me a lot of my own fictional marriage to Krista... Ugh! I hated that almost as your character hates his marriage... So basically what I'm saying is that even though this is a crazy left field story I can relate.

(ABC) 555 thumbs pointing elsewhere. LOL!!

(ABC C & D) Great OS, well-executed parody, and with the exception of gender, this parody is just one part of the reason I'll probably never get married. 5s.
Christie Marie M - April 17, 2010 - Report this comment
(ABC C/D) Nice to read/sing through your parody again! I tell you this ain't no marital bliss! As usual, great job! The OS kind of reminds me of a sped up version of Stray Cat's "Stray Cat Strut". Nice take on the OS.

Pretty goofy that the relationship dies simply because she's a vegan and you're a carnivore. :)

WOW. I need to rethink marriage... 555, and didn't Boston originally do this song?
Below Average Dave - May 02, 2010 - Report this comment
No Blaze, Boston did not do the original, the song they did is called Hitch a Ride and it is not at all related to Green Day's Hitchin a Ride. That is why I provide youtube video links in the contest.

(ABC-CD) Man, this chunk of awesome makes me really excited for the eventual Green Day Artistry round. That's gonna be pure fantasticness, I swears it. 555 for you, sir!
Abbott Skelding - May 03, 2010 - Report this comment
ABC: One of my favorite Green Day songs, definitely top 5. Great job!
Christie Marie M - January 11, 2011 - Report this comment
(ABC Tournament) This kinda reminds me of that stupid bride from "The Heartbreak Kid" with Ben Stiller. Well, congrats on your 555 year wedding anniversary...that you ditched your bride! LOL!!
