The Lyrics

With an OS title like that, how can you NOT? Oh, and this is NOT a poomaster ripoff. I won't go that low yet ;) No offence mate...
I walked into a science lab
And man, the smell was rather bad
It didn't help that someone went
And spilled some goo all down my vest

That smell, that smell, it smells, like hell
Don't smell, don't smell, don't smell, my smell
I smell, I smell, I smell, I smell, like hell
I smell, Like hell, oh well...

Now I smell like something that died
Now it's burning both of my eyes
Worse than garlic and old sneakers
'Cause of what was, in that beaker
I did not plan for mercaptans*
To spill out and enter my pants!

Now everyone that I meet
Runs to the end of the street
But it gets worse, the garbage truck
Thinks I'm a bin, that's just my luck

Sharp pin, coke tin, peach skin, old gin
Dead fish, within, this thing, it stings
Bed springs, size kings, green string, this brings
A pit, of sh*t, I quit...

Ev'ry time I break the surface
A new bin's load, of old trash hits
Gets in my mouth, ears, eyes and nose
So that's where I, put the old hose!
Going round and, round and round and
This is not quite what I had planned

(Guitar solo)

And I fall out, into the park
And not a creature there dares bark
But it's not me, I've lost my funk
What should I see? A little skunk

It sprays, and sprays, into, my face
This place, ain't ace, I want, my mace
Disgraced, my girl, will not, embrace
Go place, I need my space...

A complete mess, that smells like crap
Now I can't rest, or take a nap
The smells wakes me 'fore I can sleep
Cause I smell like one big dung heap
This ain't my day, it's my worst day!
Oh my dismay, at my display

I've got egg shells
For my hair gel
And so farewell
I'm no rebel
Goodbye Michelle
And Danielle
Find a motel
Because I smell
Well, like hell
*A really smelly substance. And I just remembered something...this is my 100th PARODY! Woobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoobwoob...I'm a little crazy. Yay for me!

It is a proven fact that the landfill processes 555 tons of garbage each year.

Funny. Just be prepared for comments by angry Nirvana fans.

Certainly went out of your way to include a reference to mercaptans (whatver that is). Personally, I would have tried to get a durian in there. A 555 and a gas mask for you.

Great parody, 5-5-5, and good job on the 100th song. I salute you

(SOTM) How come nobody ever thought of this before? This is absolutely brilliant! This is absolutely gonna be in my Top Ten. 555

(SOTM) 544. The pacing was good, but for some reason, the parody seemed a little disjointed. A good job replacing the repetitive lyrics of the OS.

SOTM - Nice job with an OS that I don't honestly like very much. Getting rid of the repetitive lyrics was helpful, though.
stuart mcarthur - June 26, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) "'Cause of what was, in that beaker" was just a killer line bobpie - made me LOL for some reason - this is proof of how folk here improve - this is a whole universe away from your first parodies, and is tight on pacing and humour - a quality write

Awesome job here little buddy!!! You've shown everybody that there are ways of making gross parodies without using the annoying topic of poop. Way to go!!!

SOTM - Never liked the OS. This parody seems ... I dunno, a little limited somehow. It has its moments though.
Phil Alexander - June 29, 2007 - Report this comment
Extra kudos for including mercaptans: not just smelly, but *the* smelliest class of compounds (the simplest, thiomethanol, is what is used to give natural gas its smell, otherwise you'd not know if there was a gas leak). I always loved the various smells of the chemistry lab

(SOTM) Well, conq, I see that I'm not the only 'stink' parody in this round. . .very well done here. . .

One of your best, I liked how you turned the OS on it's head... And I can't believe that your the first person to think of this idea. Oh and I would love to see a video to this one.
Max Power - May 17, 2008 - Report this comment
Maybe it's Cobain decomposing, get it?

(ABC4S) Best use ever that I have seen of the word "mercaptans" in a parody or anywhere else for that matter. Oh, yeah, I've heard that tomato juice is good combatant for skunk funk. I would rate this parody in the top 3 percent for quality of the copiously overdone "Team Spirit" parodies on this site. Well done and it really stinks - in a good way that is. I echo what Kristof said here.
Red Ant - May 26, 2008 - Report this comment
"the garbage truck thinks I'm a bin" was a funny and inspired line. Super late congrats on 100 parodies, pieman. I had trouble getting some of the chorus lines to pace without off-stressing words, but I made it through none the less. This parody doesn't stink.
stuart mcarthur - May 28, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC) well, I've already raved about this, and my admiration is unabated, bobpie - the amount of work and attention you put into this compared to your first parodies is awesome - the quality speaks for itself - and oh congrats on the 100 too

Nice job here COP.Sneakers/beakers reminded me of a book I've read titled "Holes".
Congrats on #100 as well.

ABC- It stinks. No, I mean that in a good way. really. Smells like a winner. Good job and congrats on #100, Conqueror.

(ABC) My original statement was short, it was back before I got to the type of commentary I now tend to leave. As a hole, I thought this was a vast improvement over the original song's rather confusing lyrics. What you did with the, shall we call it bridges, was unique and original, though not always making sense, I thought this was funny. The trash bin line was my favorite, and one that wouldn't have worked in my Bus Line parody (which is the parody I referred to in my initial comment).
