The Lyrics

Can I read your mind?
What did, I click on this for?
This song's, way past "done before"
Did I, really expect something new?
Just "me too"!
That's right, it's been done again
Like all, guys who own a pen.
That damn Avril song is parodied,
now I'll read,

Just like before.
The last, final straw.
The broke camel's back.
The one makes me crack.
It's written again,
but why waste the energy?

This was only written because Steve felt obligated.
As though he felt he
Had to go and parody this, and then he'll feel he's made it.
Well listen up, It's
the one that's been done, It's not fun
Makes me run for my gun, or I'll just vote 1 'cause
Honestly apologies are due because I really hate it.
No, no, no

Oh great- here's the second verse
as if it could not be worse.
Hoped he's, one of those who don't write long
(half the song).
But he, thought he'd persevere.
Now that, song is in my ear.
Does he, really think he'll make top 10
with this again?

Heard Avril rhymes
about 80 times.
My mind's gonna snap.
His timing is crapola.
It's not well contrived.
He won't get a five from me!

This was only written because Steve felt obligated.
makes me want to
get The Song That Will Not Die, and then hold up my cross and stake it.
I wish it would go
away, not today, it's cliché,
there's no way, is he gay? It gives me dismay to
have to wallow through another Avril song, and this one's dated.
No, no, no

No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no

Doing, this again is wrong.
He should, stick to Star Wars songs.
We've all, picked a word to write about
and worked it out

Like "Incarcerate"
and "Intoxicate"
and "Decapitate"
of course, "constipate"
I insinuate
it sounds overplayed to me

This is overdone so much that people feel obligated.
I guess we're in for
in the list, and
This fad, it's so bad, we've been had,
really sad, makes me mad, but I guess I'm glad it's
not Vanilla Ice or I'd be even more irritated.

No, no

This was only written because Steve felt obligated.
I've had enough, it
Makes me wanna track down every copy and incinerate it.
I'm telling you, it's
The one that's been done, It's not fun
Makes me run for my gun, or I'll just vote 1, and
now I think of all the minutes of my life this song has wasted.
No, No, No.

I feel obligated to give this song fives, because you were sure it wouldn't get any ;-).

Dangit Steve; I was planning on lurking for awhile before coming back but I absolutely loved this. Like the last verse of "That's A Moron", you do self-deprecation incredibly well. If they were all this good, I'd say bring on more "Sk8r Boi" parodies. Great great stuff.

Good job...I like the tongue in cheek humor

Haha nice. It is horribly over done that's true but there's a whole hell of a lot of people who hate avril

This is brilliant stuff. The pacing, the rhyming, the humour - all superb. Top job Steve.

I'd say something now, but I'd just be echoing everybody else. Great job with this overly-overtly-done-to-death song. - April 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Great rhymes. I love your stuff, Stevenagh, even when it doesn't contain shout-outs to moi. Where you been lately?

Thanks for leaving that comment, Spaff - missed this first time around (possibly I saw not *another* "Complicated" parody and didn't look further into who wrote it. Not that I'm innocent, of course). Great take on the world of Avril parodies, Steve.

Good job Steve, (Spaff & Phil, thanks for the comments that lead me here).

Gee, somebody noticed my absence! I've been so caught up with work that I haven't submitted any for a while (I'm even about to be nudged out of the top 50!). Or maybe it's all part of my master plan to become so unknown I get an appreciation week :-)

(Avril) Glorious! A brilliantly written piece in the same vein as my Troopsofparodiesheremimicthisoverdoneopus... hey, wait a minute! You wrote this one MONTHS before mine! *bows down in worship*

I don't like Avril Lavigne, I just had to give you straight 5s. Nice work. In fact, I'm working on writing a parody to "Complicated" that is about a person driving drunk and going to prison, hence the words "Intoxicated" and "Incarcerated."
