The Lyrics

The Deadly Sin of Sloth, one of 7 deadly sin parodies to the original AmIRight '7' epic parodies. . . check out badave.comfor more by me. . .
I am a very lazy useless selfish individual
I'm lacking knowledge hooked on cable, nintendo, and shopping malls
I have many exucses, and I use them quite rhetorical
From Fluffy died to having flus, I use them metaphorical

My friends have caught me naked, too, they say my dirt's fanatical
I cleap up on occasion, but still my smell's despicable
I'm singing way too quickly as I'm dealing with a lot of booze
When I wake up too early I reach over and hit the snooze

**Family**
When he wakes up too early he'll reach over and hit the snooze
When he wakes up too early he'll reach over and hit the snooze
When he wakes up too early he'll reach over and hit the flippin' snooze
**End Family**

I don't take any showers nor existential wash and brush
I don't know anything about politics or calculus
In fact, in matters variable, self-control, and logical
I am a very lazy useless selfish individual

**Family**
In fact, in matters variable, self-control, and logical
He is a very lazy useless selfish individual
**End Family**

I flunked in ancient history, because I faked the chicken pox
I only hear a mouse click, cause I use it to buy drugs like rox
I don't get excited at a visit a distant cuz'
In fact I'd have to clean up all of the fleas and bury the dead puss

Prob'bly get a million visits monthly from town police and neihgbor's pleas
They say the odor's reeking and it has been for 92 weeks
But I can be a deuce and then not answer the door no more
And stay inside the room of which internal rats and mice adore

**Family**
And stay inside the room of which internal rats and mice adore
And stay inside the room of which internal rats and mice adore
And stay inside the room of which internal rats and mice sadly adore
**End Family**

Now those who think I'm smart they have quite surely been misinformed
I'm tall and skinny 'cause I do not ever clean my flippin' dorm
In frank, in matters satirical, practical, and critical
I am a very lazy useless selfish individual

**Family**
In frank, in matters satirical, practical, and critical
He is a very lazy useless selfish individual
**End Family**

Now then, I do not see the point in marathons or precision
When all I need's in front of me and shows on the Television
When I can beat you any day in virtual intense combat
And yes I know it's nasty that I look like a bit nasty rat

When my place looks like it's been hit and is all full of debris
I'll dress it up with antics like some Air Wick spray and potpourri
My sloth, is quite unflattering and leaves me drained of energy
Some say I am quite Lazy-uselss and not too many disagree

**Family**
Some say he is quite Lazy-uselss and not too many disagree
Some say he is quite Lazy-uselss and not too many disagree
Some say he is quite Lazy-uselss and not too many really disagree
**End Family**

Yes I really do acknowledge, that my room is quite a bit scary
Perhaps I should be taken off to a penitentiary
Because in matters societal, empirical, and financial
I am a very lazy useless selfish individual

**Family**
Because in matters societal, empirical, and financial
He is a very lazy useless selfish individual
**End Family**

Another great job here Dave!!! The only problem I saw was that the line, "I'm tall and skinny 'cause I do not ever clean my flippin' dorm" doesn't really make any sense. How would not cleaning a room make you tall and skinny, I haven't cleaned by bedroom in awhile and I'm still a short, fat guy.

First of the "Deadly 7" (lol) that I've read today. Funny stuff, though there are several end-line words that are stressed very unnaturally to me - if (when) this is recorded, I think they're going to be a bit problematic for you as well (particularly "92 weeks" and the "precision/television" pair).

I agree with Red...he nailed the problem that I couldn't put into words. A little repetitive in the fact that he smells, we get it we get it, but still a wonderful take on the MMG. You are above average, Dave.

Thanks for the support guys, this was the fourth one I did of the set. . .big words to rhyme with, When recorded Ant and Agri--this one will likely be fine tuned, albeit very little because I'm pretty happy with it, but yes a couple of liberties on rhyming.

You can be lazy to undertake a parody of the OS. Nice job on it.

Dave... If you return to check up on this parody I would like to know what you were thinking with my one complaint.

PM Me, Matty, we'll talk, I do plan on fixing that little bit upon recording.

Very disappointing. Please do yourself a favor and re-read my original song. Then please find a good rhyming dictionary (as well as some decent spell check software). I do not understand how you can claim that this is a parody of “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General,” when only one of your couplets uses trisyllabic rhyming. Every couplet should use trisyllabic rhyming!

Sorry poser, I've got better things to do with my time then re-read this old song. . .Trisyllabic rhyming or not, this paces to the original and sounds right to the ear. . .that is far more important as is humor than being identical. . .that is one of the points of parody is humor. . .and trying to make every line just like the original would have subtracted from humor. . .the humor was more important to me then technicalities.
