The Lyrics

A tribute to stuntpeople everywhere!
I'm a stuntman with a mission
To cause chaos 'cross the land
And my sadomasochism
Seems to be much in demand
I love knocking actors over
You'll forgive me if I boast
If you're gonna do your own stunts
Son, you're going to be toast!

(SPOKEN) Getting to throw you....

Getting to throw you
Throwing your a** out a window
Getting to hurt you
Hope you don't bruise easily
Getting to blow you
Blowing you up with explosive
You'll keep your toes if
It's done safely...

Getting to plummet
After I'm shot by the hero
Getting to milk it
My only time on the screen
If I'm an orc or
Mafia thug, it don't matter
My need to splatter..
Is in my genes!

Getting on Kill Bill
This is my big chance with Uma
I've heard a rumour
Uma is turned on by scars
Breaking my skull, but
Always with a sense of humour
A-dren-a-lin is pumping in my veins
When I'm injuring my brain
Crashing cars!!

I'm having my stunt double jump into a pool of alligators from 555 feet for this one. Some great lines and great rhymes.

Good, but Julie Andrews never did sing in "The King and I". That was Marni Nixon for Deborah Kerr.

(ABC05) What kind of stunt do you think you're pulling here? :)
Charlie Decker - June 08, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) Superb. I especially liked the imagery of "Throwing your ass out the window." 5s.

(ABC05) I kicked myself for not reading this sooner. Then I fell on the floor laughing and hurt myself. Oh yeah, fives for fighting.
Stuart McArthur - June 16, 2005 - Report this comment
(G) as I said above, I loved this when I first read it, but it doesn't compare to your stuff of the last 6 months, Kristof - so what you always feared would happen is happening - our sky-high expectations!

Yet another DKTOS... i guess now i know how people feel about my entries. But i thought it was pretty good reading it as a poem
MysteryGoat - June 18, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC) BKTOS. Gotta feel sorry for those stunt people, stupid actors doing their own stunts.
Arwen - June 19, 2005 - Report this comment
ABC--I think I liked even more the second time around, Kristof!
Phil Alexander - June 19, 2005 - Report this comment
Awesome, Kristof. Especially liked the Uma verse :-)
