Misconstrued Lyrics, Purposely

I don't remember what we were listening to (over a year ago), maybe Rhymesayers or something, but my wife was playing this one song in which the refrain was "look into my eyes and tell me what you find" with someone shouting slogans between lines, I think. I wasn't listening very closely, but the next day I was inspired to write my own lyrics:
Just look into my e-eyes and tell me what you fi-ind.
I deign not to rewind rented video tapes!
Just look into my e-eyes and tell me what you fi-ind.
Surely, I will drink milk a week before it expires!
Just look into my e-eyes and tell me what you fi-ind.
I practice poor diction and stay up way past 9 PM!
Just look into my e-eyes and tell me what you fi-ind.
My clothes are ill-fitting and I may slouch at times!
Just look into my e-eyes and tell me what you fi-ind.
Zero-tolerance policy for jive turkeys and sucka MCs alike!

Eh, the things you can do with much time on hand.
