Do you think a school would allow for me and a couple of buds to play the song "Almost" by bowling for soup for the talent show? They think the lyrics won't go over well with the people running it(teachers). I think they would but my friends think they wouldn't. It's a middle school btw.

If you could give us the lyrics, that really would be quite helpful.

Also, play Hammer Smashed Face or Frantic Disembowelment instead. Much better than I Cum Blood.

Could you please tell us how those lyrics are controversial or offensive?

Try some Dying Fetus...NO, MEAT HOOK SODOMY BY CANNIBLE CORPSE!!! See what they think about the lyrics to either one of those then show them the lyrics to Almost.

Here are the lyrics
"I almost got drunk at school at 14
Where I almost made out with the homecoming queen
Who almost went on to be miss texas
But lost to a slut with much bigger breastes
I almost dropped out to move to LA
Where I was almost famous for almost a day

And I almost had you
But I guess that doesn't cut it
Almost loved you
I almost wished u would've loved me too

I almost held up a grocery store
Where I almost did 5 years and then 7 more
Cuz I almost got popped for a fight with a thug
Cuz he almost made off with a bunch of the drugs
That I almost got hooked on cuz you ran away
And I wish I woulda had the nerve to ask you to stay

And I almost had you
But I guess that doesn't cut it
Almost had you
And I didn't even know it

You kept me guessing and now I'm destined
to spend my time missing you
I almost wish you would've loved me too

Here I go thinking about all the things I could've done
I'm gonna need a forklift cuz all the baggage weighs a ton
I know we had our problems I can't remember one

I almost forgot to say something else
And if I cant fit it in I'll keep it all to myself
I almost wrote a song about you today
But I tore it all up and then I threw it away

And I almost had you
But I guess that doesn't cut it
Almost had you
And I didn't even know it

You kept me guessing and now I'm destined
to spend my time missing you
And I almost had you [x3]

I almost wish you would've loved me too"

PLaying a cannibal corpse song first might convince them to let us play this

That's really quite tame, to be honest, but run it past some teachers.


I know but it's a college prep private school

I guess I'll just ask one of them
