First there was a Man. Then a Woman. Then in quick succession, two cats, a confused dog beast, and two kids. I stay at home with them. I'm the Man

Round 3 of the contest I'm not in: Parody IMPORTANT UPDATE

This is the 3rd week of the Blogger Idol humor contest over at knucklehead.com.  I am not a contestant in this contest, yet this is my 3rd straight entry (first two are here and here) .  I'm the Don Quixote of Bloggy-ville.   This week's theme is  parody.  I've gone with a song parody because apparently my sense of humor is on loan from the local morning zoo radio show.  I have parodied the song Time in A Bottle, by Jim Croce.  I offer no apologies for this to Mr. Croce, as I am quite sure he is a total pussy and that my wife could kick his ass.  He might also be dead.  


I chose this song because I heard it on a commercial this morning and it's been in my head all day.  I have kept it real to the Homemaker Man way of life.  Included at the bottom aret he original lyrics and the video if anyone needs to hear it first.   Ok then.


UPDATE:  While I like the way this one came out, I've got a better one coming tomorrow.  I can do that because I'm not in the contest.  Word.


Time In a Buh-Buh

If I could save time in a buh-buh
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is save every day
Til eternity passes away
And make my kids miss their two's

If I could make days last forever
Well, often they already do
When you start with two babes at 5 in the morn
By noon you are pretty much through

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Like a shower
And when the kids have gone to sleep
I look around and I’m knee deep
In laundry

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be chalk full
Of O’s and a waffle
That had fallen inside it in June

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I look around and see my wife
And hope that she will play my “fife”
Then; snoring


Original: Time in a Bottle – Jim Croce

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

  5. I love this, I may need to change the last verse around some, but, I think torturing my offspring with my off key rendition of this will be in order today.
