Hello fellow INFJ's!
I'd like to start a harmless little platform for us to flex our creativity and inner-comic skills. Here is the general lay-out.

1. Without using too much profanity, vulgarity, etc. choose a real song and re-write the lyrics to suit a rather hilarious topic/scenario/moment that's happened to you. (ex. something funny, ironic, etc.).
This may take a little work, so feel free to use apostrophes and other punctuation marks to get things to fit. This is an exercise in creativity and comedy, so don't worry if you don't think it's funny enough. So long as you are unwinding and enjoying yourself, that's what counts.

3. Include the original video with your post, so others can read your re-hashing as they listen to the original. Words are not going to fit perfectly, so some stretch of the imagination is necessary both by the writer and reader. Also, pick songs that are relatively short (or have short lyrics). However, I'd like to see some brave people with the skills stretch themselves with longer songs. As long as there is imagination, it's all good!

4. HAVE FUN! Be creative, flexible, etc. ENJOY IT!

(Also, some potential re-write topics: Food, Losing/Forgetting Things, An Embarrassing Family Xmas Party, Waiting in Long Lines, Tying Shoes, etc. Really anything, just be mindful of other people and choose language carefully!)

Begin!

Keane - Somewhere only we know -



I leave my room
Right bang on five
Drive up the highway where I feel so alive
I take a ride
And have anap
Spin through the meadows like Maria von Traapp

Oh simple life
Where have you gone?
And I'm not talking 'bout that crap with Paris Hilton
Is this the place
My neighborhood
I think I'll quit my job and move up here for good

I catch a fish
And climb a tree
I'm like Snow White - the birds are singing out with me
I'm full of joy
With all I've got
But when I get back to the parking lot

I can't believe
My car is gone
Ain't this place safe? I left my keys in the ignition
Hey come here brat
Gimme your phone
It's getting dark and I need some way to get home

And if you saw, please tell me where'd the thief go
The bar-stewards got my card from Sligo
Maps all of Oxford, Leeds and Truro
And the cassette radio
Someone stole my Geo

Someone stole my Geo

Insurance says replacement value's zero
That hurts my ego
Someone stole my Geo


Someone stole my Geo

Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire



Music was playin'
Really quite loud
I'm driving
Drivin'

Quickly in motion
Roundin' the bend
A Policeman
He stops me...... (he says)

Ooooh ooooh oooh
Your tax has expired!!!

@Killbain, I'm giving you a standing O! Thank you for that! (I'll be singing "Someone stole my Geo" for some time now)


Celine Dion-"The Power of Love"

@Lady Nurture presents: Book Maiden
A whisp-er of a fly-leaf,
"This one's for you, dear Dwight,"
A summary of other names,
Can I just get to page one?
I don't dog-ear the pages,
but tape the jacket down,
Can the heater turn itself on?
I'm not done with this one,
I crave pancakes...

'Cause I'm a BOOK-MAIDEN!
And I've got no man,
Whenever I reach for thee,
I build a library in bed...

I've lost track of the time,
It seems I don't what day, it is.
Boss'll wonder where I am,
Cause I am always,
days behind!

'Cause I'm a BOOK MAIDEN!
"I think, therefore I am",
What does "ubiquitous" mean?
Where's my pocket Webster?
I'm heading to B&N,
it's been two days since I've been,
Sometimes I am frightened by how much I love,
books, mugs and scarves...

The sound of pages flipping,
My heart quickens in me,
The reason I've not gone Doomsday today,
is miles of shelves...

'Cause I'm a BOOK MAIDEN!
the best at mislaid plans,
Whenever I think I've achieved,
keeping all of my friends---
I've found Sexton's works!
But can't see my front door,
Sometimes I am frightened by how much I love,
Books, mugs and scarves!
Books, mugs and scarves…

Woo-hoo, whoo-ooo,
Poe, King, Joyce-Carol Oates:
The power of prose.

By: @Lady Nurture, Manic Book-Lover

feeding my turtle, baby shrimp and, lots of pellets
he can't quite reach them, so we'll watch him try, -come -on -lets?

crawling like no turtle before you
stretch your arms in to the distance
let your self move and reach that -oh -so -longing -destination!

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
let out your inner speed demon

feel the rain on your shell!...

-----------------
ok, that's enough of that xD
my little sister and I used to do this all the time when we were kids lol
I think they are funnier when you're belting them out and laughing about it together
I don't know if reading this will give you guys the same laughing so hard I can't breath effect it gave us

The Who - My Generation


Tried to put my suitcase d-down (Talkin' 'bout my last vacation)
So customs could unlock it now (Talkin' 'bout a real frustration)
They told me do as you're told (Talkin' 'bout my last vacation)
They found white powder in the folds (Talkin' 'bout real trepidation)

This is my last vacation
This is my las vacation, baby

Then they said that I must go (Talkin' 'bout my consternation)
To the customs strip search at Heathrow (Talkin' 'bout anticipation)
It was quite a strange sensation (Not like mutual masturbation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my last vacation (Talkin' 'bout my last vacation)


And then they led me away (Talkin' 'bout an altercation)
I've been in prison since that day (Talkin' 'bout my incarceration)
I'm not trying to get your dispensation (Talkin' 'bout commiseration)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my last vacation (Talkin' 'bout my last vacation)

Sweat Gets in Your Eyes

I noticed how they grew
Weeds of emerald hue
Oh, in front, behind, beside
The hut where I reside
I need a Tica guide

In the tool shed I did find
Machete peace of mind
Oh, how I did perspire
Under flaming skies
Sweat gets in your eyes

So I groaned and thought I must be daft
As I cursed the wasps above
Blisters spray as I madly hack away
I am without my gloves
(Without my gloves!)

Though I thought I’d hit my stride
Here I must confide
Oh, as I bob and sway
I’m sore from neck to thighs
Sweat gets in your eyes
Sweat gets in your eyes

This might be not be very hilarious, but here ya go.


She's to good to be true
When I'm pushing back her hair
I can tell she's not my type
But in this moment I don't care

I miss the times that we chilled
But it was only a thrill
One night she looked me in the eyes
I felt the tears that she held inside
She saw the thoughts that went through my mind

I can feel her still
Because the song will take me there
I was being too way too kind
And ended up just being unfair

I know there were words untold
Like tearing pages from a book
There might be love but not much time
Time for us to get enough

I know just what to say when she's in front of me
But she gets mad on the phone when I fall asleep

Trusting her
I guess I should have trusted her all along

And now we're just not the same
And when I doubt we fall
You rejected my kiss now I'm gone

No more asking what did I do wrong
No more asking what did I do wrong

Platonic - Alanis Morissette




I’ve known you,since you were just eight
It was twenty more years, till we had our first date
We had our second one just the other day
I should have known, when you turned up so late
Isn't it platonic?... don't you think

It’s like wondering, what the hell you have done
It's like going out, holding hands with your Mom
I’ve begun to think, that you might be a Nun
I won’t get to see your figure

Miss Play It Safe don’t seem to want me
She don’t seem to need any intimacy
And when we got to my room, when I took her home
She spent the whole damned night
Sending texts on her phone
And isn't it platonic?... don't you think

It's like being ignored when you’re trying to be nice
It’s like getting a gift, and then asking the price
It's like underwear that’s held on by a vice
I thought that your ass looked bigger!

Well you have a funny way of letting me know your care
I think everything's okay and suddenly you’re not there
And when I call you up say “How is my Lady, fair?”
You say “I can’t come out, because I’m washing my hair”

A empty vase, no flowers in the room
A wedding disco with no bride and no groom
A letter to write with just ink and no pen
It's going on Personality Cafe
And reading the thread about Dangerous Men!
And isn't it platonic...don't you think
It really is platonic...and, yeah, I really do think...

It's like circuitry, in a house with no power
It’s therapy, but you pay by the hour
It’s like seeing your sister, as she gets out the shower
The thought only makes me snigger




And isn’t itplatonic?

Yeah I really do think

@Killbain You seem to be enjoying yourself here :happy:

I seem to recall you saying you were once in a band? so maybe there's a connection there.

I've got 8 bucks in my wallet, and I'm feeling so broken.
I've got this bill on my dresser, it gives me constant stress.

If you gimme a loan.
then I'll walk myself to that institute, yes I will
and I'll pay it all off now thanks to you, yes I will
then I'll pay it back to you in little bits, yes I will
then maybe you'll loan out to me ag-ain.

Well now, I've had enough of this nonsense
There's one thing that I have to do
I just will not go on working
Working for you



I can tell that you're a schemer
(You always misrepresent?)
And I know you can’t change
(Totally incompetent)
But it's gone downhill lately



I'm earning nowt, I’m burning out
But churning out the same

So here’s my resignation
This time I pass
So take your job and stick it
Up your.................

We haven't been sexual
For such a long time
You hate my Brazilian
It's such a fine line
So tonight, is the night
You can leave on the light
And try to guess what I'm gonna do.....hoooo

Yes I'm shaving off my muff for you.......

Yoga

I tried it in a New Age studio
Where they burn nag champa and they munch on sprouts and boca
B-o-c-a boca
Seemed kinda groovy, thought I might take a chance
I wrote down my name and I signed up for a month of yoga
Y-o-g-a yoga yo-yo-yo yoga

Well I’m not the world’s most flexible guy
And Marichyasana, it really twists my spine
During yoga yo-yo-yo yoga
Well I’m kinda numb, and can’t hardly stand
Please tell me is that my foot, or is it my hand?
Oh my yoga yo-yo-yo yoga yo-yo-yo yoga

Part game of Twister, part sacred rite
Bathed in soft votive candlelight
I picked up my foot and placed it on my knee
Then the other foot on the other knee!
Well I’m not the world’s most spiritual guy
But the chants and the mantras really ease my mind during yoga
Yo-yo-yo-yo yoga yo-yo-yo-yo yoga
Yoga yo-yo-yo-yo yoga yo-yo-yo-yo yoga

I said Namaste
I felt for my core
I sprawled on the floor
I hugged both my knees
Shavasana really set me free

Though it’s like a scene out of Eat, Love, and Pray
It’s still the way I want to start my day, yeah with yoga
yo-yo-yo-yo yoga
Downward facing dog really rocks my world
And the dips and the bends and the twists and the curls, oh yeah yoga
yo-yo-yo-yo yoga

Well I’d only tried it twice before
And I’d never ever really felt my core
But the teacher smiled at my poor handstand
And then she said “Now, Horrible, lift your hands.”….?!

Well I’m not the world’s most physical man
I sweat like a pig, and I rest when I can
During yoga
Yo-yo-yo-yo yoga yo-yo-yo-yo yoga
Yoga yo-yo-yo-yo yoga yo-yo-yo-yo yoga
