Lyric

This is my parody of American Pie by Dan Mclean

This happened in days past
I still have a scar from the path that
took me for a fateful ride
that changed all my friend’s life’s tides
and it was all caused by a little walk

Yet I did somehow survive it
and going through life bit by bit
I could never forget
and never will I forget

I chanced upon a forest path
to suffer fate’s desperate wrath
yet something caused me to feel bliss
walking the path most missed

So my, my how many had died
Tried to survive, not satisfied, I definitely died
and such cleverness saved some lives
although it caused for me to die
it caused for me to die

Thorns scratched my limbs, body, head
and made me wish I brought a bed
if the path allowed me to
some strange guy blocking the road
who less resembled man than toad
and challenged me without further ado

Well I could never ever play chess
how did I get myself in this mess
He said that if I lost
that he would hang me on some cross

My life depended on this giant game
that didn’t at all a normal chess game seem
this guy had a crazy scheme
walking the path most missed

I started singin’ my, my, how many will die
tried to survive not satisfied, I definitely tried
and such cleverness saved some lives
although it caused me to die
it caused me to die

Trapped inside the giant chess pieces
I saw my family’s faces
I don’t know how it came to be
all of a sudden I was inside the king
suddenly the game was in full swing
This was no game o’er a cup of tea

Oh, and while I(king) quickly resigned
I saved all of my kin in kind
the chess game was adjourned
There was a lot of deaths

and while my family all survived
I was the martyr who had died
and I went on a crazy ride
walking the path most missed

(chorus)
