"A Complicated Song" as written by and Lauren/spock Christy....
Uh huh, extra cheese
Uh huh, uh huh, save a piece for me

Pizza party at your house
I went just to check it out
Nineteen extra larges
What a shame
No one came

Just us eatin' all alone
You said, "Take the pizza home"
"No sense lettin' all this go to waste"
So then I faced

Pizza all day
And every day
This cheese 'round the clock
Is gettin' me blocked
And I sure don't care
For irregularity

Tell me
Why'd you have to go and make me so constipated?
'Cause right now I'd do anything to just get my bowels evacuated
In the bathroom, I sit and I wait and I strain
And I sweat and I clench and I feel the pain
Oh, should I take laxatives or have my colon irrigated?
No no no

I was feelin' pretty down
'Till my girlfriend came around
We're just so alike in every way
I gotta say

In fact, I just thought I might
Pop the question there that night
I was kissing her so tenderly
But woe is me

Who would have guessed
Her family crest
I'd suddenly spy
Tattooed on her thigh
And son-of-a-gun
It's just like the one on me

Tell me
How was I supposed to know we were both related?
Believe me, if I knew she was my cousin we never would have dated
What to do now? Should I go ahead and propose
And get hitched and have kids with eleven toes
And move to Alabama where that kind of thing is tolerated?
No no no no no no no
No no no no no no no
No no no no no

I had so much on my mind
I thought maybe I'd unwind
Try out that new roller coaster ride
And the guide

Said not to stand
But that's a demand
That I couldn't meet
I got on my feet
And stood up instead
And knocked off my head, you see

Tell me
Why'd I have to go and get myself decapitated?
This really is a major inconvenience, oh man, I really hate it
Such a drag, now
Can't eat, I can't breathe, I can't snore
I can't belch or yodel anymore
Can't spit or blow my nose or even read Sports Illustrated

Oh no
Why'd I have to go and get myself all mutilated? (yeah, yeah)
I gotta tell ya, life without a head kinda makes me irritated
What a bummer
Can't blink, I can't cough, I can't sneeeze
But my neck is enjoyin' a pleasant breeze now
Haven't been the same since my head and I were separated
No no no

    General CommentThis is a great song, about a guy who goes through a lot of shit in his life. He gets constipated, finds out his girlfriend is also his cousin and he gets decapitated. Well, now that I've stated the obvious, just like to say that this is a great song and I can't believe no one has commented yet.

    General CommentI would agree chocol8. This a great tune and it proves Al's adeptitude as a comedic wordsmith. My only bone comes from how edgy it is. Over the last decade, Al's humor has evolved into something that would probably make the Al of 20 years ago bristle. Maybe he did it to prove that he could be edgy. Maybe he did it to survive in the current state of desensitization that we live in. We have kids under age 6 laughing at Cow and Chicken, tell me that show wasn't the work of a desensitized freak? A decade ago, I thought Headline News was an edgy tune but time marches on and tastes somehow evolve and it isn't always for the better. To be current on this playing field, I guess the edge must be sharpened. Overall, this is a funny song and I think Al has made his point that he can stay current no matter what the current musical tastes are. In the end, I yearn for nostalgia but it seems only fruitless.
