Punforgiven Too (Metallica parody)
A friend once said to me that I should write a book with my collection of favourite puns. I might one day, but in the meantime I wrote a song (parody) instead!
Here's Metalica's Unforgiven Too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-Bn_kD6QN4
Big thanks to Everwinter for the months of work he put into drawing all the panels, which went over what I first estimated, and to Tombedlammusic for singing this, I made a few changes after he'd sung the lyrics once I realised I wanted I wanted to do with the video, and he was happy to redo the parts that needing changing.

Also a big thanks the great The Buntz! The entire “exploding brain” meme bit was out of a conversation we (and a few other people ) had on Twitter once, and I made the meme to remember that. Also I had to note the great Buntz in this project, for all the puns and laughs! https://twitter.com/TheBURGERMEIST2?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
Play the right key, I got locked in again. Zoom out to show
You should go and catch your fridge, cos I can hear it run
I wrecked my sock now, so I thought this yarn would do
If you can understand the me, then I can oversee the you!
Plane flew by me, oh how the time flies
In heaven playing some board games, we share this pair o’ dice
The door swings open, but I might be unhinged too,
I was on my own, until, I got friends, I did, accrue!
I got friends, I did, a crew – so there’s no sense groaning!
What I heard? The ringtone,
Just a second, hold the phone
What eyesore, an unpleasant view!
What? I felt, I mean I sew,
This tablet rocks, it’s made of stone!
Could you stay there? Cos I’m the one who waits for you -
When you want to eat some food
Come lay beside me, and I don’t mean an egg.
She’s filled with doubt, won’t fly until, she stops being chicken
Let’s get nerdy! Try some element puns!
It’s unfortunate but still, the best ones all Argon, All the best Argon!
there’s no reaction!
An introvert, not on her own,
Went to the bank to get alone,
And I’m sure, she had no interest too.
What I’ve smelt, blood and bone,
It’s another joke, it’s just some stone.
If you’re still here, I’m so grateful to you!
I’ll see this pun mission through
Get it right here, all that’s left is none,
This song’s exposed, so is your mind,
The song is almost done, and now you see the puns
Yes now you see them!
What I heard, another groan,
Just give it time, and then you’ll know
They might grow, they might gro-oan you!
What they pelt, the things they throw
Mouldy eggs and tomato!
But jokes on them, I’m wearing pelt, wearing a pelt suit!
What I’m dealt, go with the flow
Test them out, see how they go
Intend your puns, just be resolute!
And I’ll dub thee punforgiven!
What I felt, What I’ve known
This parody - I poured my heart into!
Because your puns are driven too!
Every day, pun away!
Now you’re punforgiven too!
