Song Parody Fragments:

"Team"
Better Lyrics:
They call me Squiddy I've got tentacles for legs
In High School I was voted most likely to suck eggs
My life is ruined because SpongeBob lives next to me
And you know, we're not boating buddies
Original Lyrics:
We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team
Submitted by: Linus Pierce

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Team"
The Lyrics:
The cups are broke
Why:
'Broke' is a past tense verb, not a past participle. So it should be 'The cups are BROKEN'.
Submitted by: MO
"Royals"
The Lyrics:
We will never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
Why:
It DOESN'T run in our blood. But 'doesn't' doesn't fit the meter of the song. That's why she says 'don't'.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Royals"
The song was banned in San Francisco during the 2014 World Series due to, get this, the San Francisco Giants playing against the Kansas City Royals in the game. One has to wonder if Kansas City radio stations are banned from playing Bear Hands' "Giants".
