Dumb Ways To Die!

I always tell my kids, "You can be funny, without being dirty!"  Somehow, ahem... Darren, these kids got a hold of this cute video (minus the word dumb) and it's become the new family theme song around here.  I think it has a catchy tune and it's clever.  It's not something to get all bent out of shape about.  There are certainly WORSE things my children could be singing.  
Definitely watch the video, but if you have a hard time deciphering the lyrics, please do read along below.  I laugh out loud every time I watch the video and listen to these lyrics. HYSTERICAL and CLEVER. I've highlighted my favorite, worse, "had to explain" and can "mostly relate to" lyrics below.

Set fire to your hair
Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
Eat medicines that’s out of date
"Use your private parts as piranha bait" (Had to explain)
Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

"Get your toast out with a fork" (Can relate... Darren's new branding toaster is a "piece").Do your own electrical work
Teach yourself how to fly
Eat a two week old unrefrigerated pie

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Invite a psycho-killer inside
"Scratch your drug dealer’s brand new ride" (Worse lyric. I don't wish to explain this one).
Take your helmet off in outer space
Use your clothes dryer as a hiding place

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die


Keep a rattlesnake as pet
Sell both the kidneys on the internet
Eat a tube of superglue
“I wonder what’s this red button do?” (Favorite bc when the kids sing it, it's so funny!)

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dress up like a moose during hunting season
Disturb a nest of wasps for no good reason
Stand on the edge of a train station platform
Drive around the boom gates at a level crossing
Run across the tracks between the platforms
They may not rhyme but they’re quite possibly

Dumbest ways to die ie
Dumbest ways to die
Dumbest ways to die
So many dumb
So many dumb ways to die
