My Take on “Still Alive” is “Five Alive”

By Jorge Figueiredo - April 9th, 2008

This is no lie: I yell at cakes at cake boot camp, where I teach.

You may have seen this in the comments last week, but if you didn’t, here’s my take on “Still Alive.” It’s a tribute to what may be my favourite drink from the pop machine here at work:

I’m awfully thirsty
My throat is an awful, parchy mess
It would be great to get me some refreshment!
I’ll check in my pocket,
Perhaps I will have some change to spare
To use inside the pop machine
That’s just a few steps away…
It’s a cold container packed with very cold drinks
And it sits right next to the aluminum sink,
Oh what joy I have a loon,
This is surely a great boon,
I can use it to get FIVE ALIVE….

    You totally ruined Adam’s special song. I hope you’re happy. He can never read this post now. Don’t you care about his feelings?

  3. What can I say?
    I’m a cake-eating bastard.

    Because I’m sitting at home alone, I sang this song out loud all the way through. It worked perfectly!

    Well done.

    Mathew, did you record yourself singing?

    Sadly not.

  7. All in favour of Mathew singing for the next podcast?
