The Lyrics

A parody that will be recorded, the others are at badave.com. Matthias, I honestly wasn't crazy about fashion, until this parody came to my mind, and now--I think it's one of my stronger writes in the competition, reading these lyrics even I'm getting a laugh. . .Some of the brands may be less well known outside the USA, so I put some stuff in the bottom section to let you know what they are.
I think your shoes are over-rated

You don't care about fashion
Said Goodwill's too pricy
Hole in your shirt and your shoes will fall off soon
Can't get a job 'cause you're looking dirty

When friends come over and you're in your night gown
I'd think you would change since they don't stay around
But on your computer you don't need any mates
You need to zip it up
zip it up
zip it up
zip it up

HEY
you need to head down to Macy's
Leave your house
You think new jeans are over-rated

HEY
Just buy a shirt or two or three
Damn you louse
Go buy some shoes that aren't so faded

Heeeey-yyaaa
You should be fined
Your bum is showing, smell you walking, All covered in gri-y-ime
Heey-yaa
Get clothes today

and you aren't even trying
Your hair makes Trump's look great
Two different colors on different nails
Mismatched your earings and those socks need replaced

You thought it'd be funny when you went to the store
To buy a dress that looks quite fit for a whore
You spent like 5 dollars from your head to your feet
You need to invest in soap
invest in soap
invest in so. .

HEY
Would it hurt to wear Nike?
Buy it now
Your clothes are looking kinda Jaded

HEY
Looks like your covered in debris
Dirty blouse
Your whole wardrobe could be upgraded

Heeeeey-yyaaa
Your out of line
Your at my house, chatting up, stinking all the ti-y-ime
Heey-yaa
Get clothes today

Your closet's empty and so are your drawers
You won't do laundry and your hygiene is poor
I looked in the mirror and what did I see
I look just like you almost
like you almost
like you al. . .

HEY
Now I know why you like me
Leave my house
'Cause my old threds are getting traded

HEY
Is that a roach or are those fleas
There's a mouse
Looks like my room has just been raided

Heeeey-yyaa
Need Calvin Klein
Need a pair of Khakis and Reebox would be just fi-y-ine
Heey-yaa
Got Clothes today
Like I said I will record this. . .Oh points of reference in case anyone hasn't heard of these: Goodwill is a company in America that offers discounted used clothing at no profit (they are a non-profit organization that does not charge more than what they paid, or very little more to pay for rent etc). Macy's is a popular department store chain. Donald refers to Donald Trump, a multi-billionaire who is known for his terrible comb-over, so much so that he even admits it. Nike is a shoe brand. Calvin Klein make underwear. Reebox is another shoe brand. Threds is a slang word for clothing

You heard what I had to say about this one yesterday, and it still remains, but I thought you were looking forward towards Fashion!!! Oh well... At least you pull through it with excellent form.

That is the way most celebs who should know better look.

Love the OS, and you've done a splendid job with the parody, Dave. Can't wait to hear the recording. 555

Thanks everyone. . .it's a fun OS

(Dec2) This was very hard to read against the song...very challenging accents on ending words of lines, sometimes sacrificing grammar ("Socks need replaced"). All around pretty good.
Matthias - January 11, 2008 - Report this comment
Agrimorfee is right this does read kinda rough next to the original song, I know it's paced perfectly, and can be easilly performed, but against the original song it seems a tad rough. I still like the twist at the end, and it's very funny.

(DEC 2.7) I enjoyed the tale very much, and I love the OS...but I agree with Ag and Matty: although it fits, the pacing feels a bit lumpy at times. Nevertheless, a cool 555

Decathlon...High five on this one...I'm all for giving folks a "dress a little nicer" pep talk! =)

I see Agrimorfee's already nitpicked the "socks need replaced"... other than that, OK :-)

Awesome job! 5s

(dec2.7) like Kristof said, this would make a great recording if you can pull off the voice, and I think your voice would do it perfectly dave - good job and idea and my favourite part were all the rhymes you found for over-rated - 555

Love the OS, I too would enjoy this if it was recorded. The new lyrics fit the song well!
