The Lyrics

From The Album "The Self Titled Debut Album"
It's amazing I can stand right here
And you would never know
Just look right through and keep on passing by
I could get right in your face
And you'd ignore me like a fly
Maybe it's because you're just a jerk
Or maybe it's just me
Maybe it's just me

So what if I was gone
What if I would die
What if I just left
And never said goodbye
Would you even know
Or would you even care
Do you even know that I am standing here
You never came my way
Never looked at me
You told me you're my friend
You always ignored me
So what if I was gone
What if I would die
Or what if I just left
Don't think you would object
Won't even know I'm gone
Won't even know I'm gone

I have known you for a long time
And you know nothing of me
I can tell you your life story
But you can't tell me a thing
I have people all around me
But I'm still feeling alone
I know that you don't care right now
So take your ball and go

So what if I was gone
What if I would die
What if I just left
And never said goodbye
Would you even know
Or would you even care
Do you even know that I am standing here
You never came my way
Never looked at me
You told me you're my friend
You always ignored me
So what if I was gone
What if I would die
Or what if I just left
Don't think you would object
Won't even know I'm gone

Maybe it's just me.

So what if I was gone
What if I would die
What if I just left
And never said goodbye
Would you even know
Or would you even care
Do you even know that I am standing here
You never came my way
Never looked at me
You told me you're my friend
You always ignored me
So what if I was gone
What if I would die
Or what if I just left
Don't think you would object
Won't even know I'm gone

Won't even know I'm gone
Won't even know I'm gone
That I'm gone, That I'm gone, That I'm gone

Do note, this is one of those parodies that are not supposed to be funny.

Exactly how I feel right now.

(ABC05) DKTOS, but I like it a lot. 5's
Red Ant - June 07, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC-G-05) I haven't heard TOS in a while and substituted "heartfelt" for "funny". 5s.

(ABC05) DKTOS, and I bet if we were to place the OS lyrics and yours side by side, i wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I don't know if that's a bad thing or a good thing. Nicely written either way.

(ABC) DKTOS, but sometimes a parody doesn't have to be laugh out loud funny to be great.

(ABC) Be proud of your serious parodies, my friend.

(G) This is excellent, G-Man! I've said before and will say again, if you're not writing original songs, in addition to parodies, you should be.
Dee Range - June 14, 2005 - Report this comment
(G) Excellent poetry. All 5's
Rick C - June 15, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC05) Nicely done.
Stuart McArthur - June 15, 2005 - Report this comment
(G) a great example of how 'well-crafted' can replace 'funny' - very well-crafted, MG
Kristof Robertson - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
(Abc) a far better take on the OS. 555
Phil Alexander - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
With lyrics like this, MG, you could be a pro...

ABC G - What is there to say that hasn't been said. I do know the OS and it fits pretty well, and it's not funny but you had a clear point and expressed it well. So overall a good job but it's probably not getting a vote because i believe that a good funny parody is better than a good serious parody. Maybe there should be a serious parody contest sometime for stuff like this.
