Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

You'd be surprised how hard it is to write a completely random song. Or not.
I think my friends are zombies
Controlled by Abercrombie
With remotes in their brains
I speak only in Pig Latin
And my favorite color's Satin
Perhaps I am insane

When I danced with all the fairies
And talked to those cranberries
You thought it was a game
But you didn't know my mission
Is to keep the trolls from fishin'
Perhaps I am insane

Oh, I could tell you why
Lights turn on from a switch,
And how baseball pitchers pitch their pitch,
It's all because....of a witch

Voices in my head are sayin'
It's time to stop my playin'
And kill everyone named Dave
I can grab the moon with my hand
Think my name is Barbara Streisand
Perhaps I am insane

I drink with my feet and toes
Carpool to work on UFOs
I dance and make it rain,
I talk to all the animals
I won't believe that whales are mammals
Perhaps I am insane

I brunch with my pal Bigfoot
And Elvis is not kaput
He eats with us somedays
And when I hide from the law
I get help from my pal Jabberjaw
Perhaps I am insane

Picture me on live TV
And try to get me freed
Please don't make me beg you on my knees
Cause as you steals your soul

Still I'd admit it's not that fun
To be smarter than everyone
'Cause of computers in my brain
But I have to live with it that way
Because I'll save the world some day
Perhaps I am insane

The M.I.B erased my mem'ry
'Cause I helped good ol' E.T
Hide from the Feds again
I went back in time with a gun
And shot President Lincoln
Perhaps I am insane

Now despite the medication,
I still see the space station
Take pictures of my lane
And no matter how hard they try
I won't tell them how to fly
Perhaps I am insane

Garbage men won't be my friends
'Cause I stole their magic hats again
And from my bite wounds they have yet to mend
But I don't care...they're stealing my air

When you look for me in November
Just try to remember
I'll be hiding in the rain
I'll put rocket fuel in my car
Fly away to the furthest star
Perhaps I am insane
Look for this, along with my other parodies, to be recorded soon. Already done with three. If anyone wants to help record them (or start like a mini record label) e-mail me at

Perhaps trivial to some...the fact that your payoff line is one count too short to match on pacing is really screwing me up. Or is that part of the "insane" appeal? Either screwed me up.

I think she's just pissed because she knows the song is a tribute to her...

Clumsy? Yes.

Sexy? Yes.

Inconceivably Clever?? Of course.

I'm not insane though. Insanely Beautiful maybe...

Only the truly insane think they're sane.

Which of my comments are you agreeing with, Kristof? ; )

I love trippy random free-associative parodies like this! Great job!
Ahnonamis - August 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Actually, it's one short on that line because when it's sung there's a pause right after "perhaps". I'll post the URL to it when I finish recording my other songs, too

That was so unbelievably random that I'm amazed you had it rhyming. Nice Work.
