Autie boy

I was so taken with the Code Monkey song that I decided to write a parody, “Autie Boy.” I hope everyone understands that I’m rooting for Autie Boy.

Autie boy get up, get breakfast
Autie boy go to school
Autie boy make boring schedule
But Autie boy no fool.
Teacher say “Autie boy very diligent
But his data sure stink
Not making 80 percent with ABA
Why can’t Autie boy think?”

Autie boy think maybe teacher want to perform boring discrete trial tasks by herself
But Autie boy never say it out loud
Autie boy not verbal
just cowed.

Autie boy like M&Ms;
Autie boy like wiggle string
Autie boy not a simple boy
Big warm fuzzy secret thoughts
Autie boy like stim

Autie boy hang out at bus stop
Cause the bus routes look nice
Autie boy want to ride forever
Not just once or twice
Bus Driver say no thank you to this rider ‘cause
Autie boy give him the creeps
Anyway you go to subway now
Horn make too many beeps

Autie boy have long walk back to apartment
Sit down watch t.v.
Autie boy not watching the show
Only want see credits — you know

Autie boy he good at b-ball
No one gave him a glance
Autie boy keep doing his training
Hope to get him a chance
Coach say go in at end of game
That won’t do school no harm
Autie boy make 6 winning baskets
Magic come from his arm

Autie boy think someday he get to live in world where no one thinks he’s weird
Where no one thinks he is sick
Where people accept his shtick.

Autie boy like M&Ms;
Autie boy like wiggle string
Autie boy not a simple boy
Big warm fuzzy secret thoughts
Autie boy like stim.


Due to the technogeek implications of the Code Monkey song, perhaps this is more than a parody?

Maybe we can put the lyrics or part of the lyrics on a T-shirt.

I’d buy a T-shirt with big fat fuzzy secret thoughts, and the basketball part, and the one about the bus.

I like the way this whole parody hangs together and criticises the culture that we live in and are part of.

I like it. It has a good beat and I can dance to it. I give it a 7.


Have you tried it as “boy autie like m&m;’s”….

I love it, it talks about the secret thoughts that I know are locked inside my Charlie. The problem is that people judge other people’s intelligence by what comes out of their mouths and autistic kids have so much inside themselves that can’t or won’t come out.

Keep writing. Please keep writing. Your writing has inspired me to write more too, after writing a small book about my son. Now every day I can barf up a little of what has gotten lodged inside myself from the circus that I live in.

It helps me.
