Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

One Short

This song was created for Game of Bands round 221 : "Only One Instrument III"

Lyrics:

[CHORUS]
Oh shit! Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!
Today is going great [sarcasm]
Boss I beg you not to fire me
I've got a good excuse, you'll see

Let me tell you how this came to be

[Verse 1 - the alarm]
Wake up feeling great before my alarm
Lie in a bit because what's the harm
Roll over and yell "oh cock!"
Because it's nearly eleven o'clock!

I didn't press the one button to turn it on

[Verse 2 - Missing a sock]
Roll out of bed like a sleepy scared invertibrate
Grab my nearest clothes who cares if they coordinate?
For my feet - oh no, oh fuck!
I only have a single sock

Why does dryer keep eating my socks?

[CHORUS]
Oh shit! Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!
Today is going great [sarcasm]
Boss I beg you not to fire me
I've got a good excuse, you'll see

[Verse 3 - the car]
Jump in my car and it feels like shite
Like it's leaning to the right
Unlike other automobiles
My one has only got three wheels

I was going to get up early and take it to the garage!

Verse 4 - change for public transport
I'll ride to work on the forty-two bus
The driver says "that'll be two bucks"
There's a dollar ninety-nine in my back pocket
And I can't find my fucking wallet

Oh! I remember! I left it in my car

[CHORUS]
Oh shit! Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!
Today is going great [sarcasm]
Boss I beg you not to fire me
I've got a good excuse, you'll see

[SOLO]

[Breakdown - it get's weird]
My shoe is rubbing at my heel / Can't drive a car without a wheel
I walk to work and I don't look / And miss one turn I shoulda took
On some abandoned piece of land / A Martian with six-fingered hands
Asked how I cope with only five / And said he'll take me for a drive
He took me to his UFO / And showed me things that I didn't know
Asked for my brain to run tests on / But I don't have enough of one
And that's why I'm
Late for Work today
[Exit]
