Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song is bananas, b-a-n....the original song is possibly the most irritating #1 song in the history of billboard. If you dtkos, you're lucky. It's 2 in the morning now and I'll probably end up dreaming about it.
Huh? Huh? What? What?
Who wrote this, your gerbil?
No way, no way
Couldn’t be a human
Makes me moan like
Harry Potter’s Myrtle

Huh? Huh? What? What?
How am I deservin’
Of this torture?
Did I steal kids’ candy?
First I heard it
Really was unnervin’

Ok fine
Doesn’t quite rhyme
Neither did Whitman
But I would rather watch a mime
Pretend to sit in
An imaginary box
In front of my TV

If you asked how bad it is
I’d say very
The swear words
Are just quite unnecessary
The song is clever like Fox
News’ Hannity

It’s, like,
Juvenile
The rant
Of a drunk dial
I think
You should be on trial now
It’s a crime to sing those words so loud

Huh? Huh? What? What?
Who wrote this, your gerbil?
No way, no way
Couldn’t be a human
Makes me moan like
Harry Potter’s Myrtle

Huh? Huh? What? What?
How am I deservin’
Of this torture?
Did I steal kids’ candy?
First I heard it
Really was unnervin’

If an evil craz-
Y villain ever captures me
I hope he doesn’t choose to play
That bad song constantly
If he did it would not be
Too much time until I would crack

Fingers in my ears
Sadly allow me to hear
And it won’t help me if I drink some beer
If I do I might start
Singing along with the track

It’s like ridiculous
DJs must be clueless
Many made a foolish choice
Now I have to hear your shouting voice

Huh? Huh? What? What?
Who wrote this, your gerbil?
No way, no way
Couldn’t be a human
Makes me moan like
Harry Potter’s Myrtle

Huh? Huh? What? What?
How am I deservin’
Of this torture?
Did I steal kids’ candy?
First I heard it
Really was unnervin’

I should trek in
The hope that I’ll find a place where
No one has
A radio that plays your
Newest single
Or those that will come after
I think music
Cannot get any dafter

Well, you sound like
You will be on Jerry Springer
Where the crowd
Will call you a home wrecker
Blame you mother
But an awful upbringing
Is no excuse
For the words you’ve been singing


(The original song spends a long time fading out with the chorus, but for the sake of treating readers and listeners somewhat decently the parody stops here)

The first time I was unfortunate enough to hear this song, it stayed in my head and tortured me for hours! Thanks for the exorcism.

Remember that annoying Glen Stefani hit "Hollaback Girl" from last year? If you don't or if you're trying to suppress it I can't blame you. However wrote this song - Avril herself or a name/faceless record company studio drone - has obviously been tied down to a pole for days and forced to listen to that song before coming up with this. I could go on but the vomit bucket is getting full, I better go empty it...

Thanks Peter and Jaime. Nobody forgets Hollaback girl (actually almost 4 years old)...it was actually referenced in this weeks episode of "the office", which is a show that I hope to write a parody about in the near future. The similarity was apparent to me too, which should be clear from the opening comments. I wonder if I deserve a medal for intentionally listening to the song twice in order to write this parody.

Thank you! Finally, someone who hates that song as much as I do. I can just picture this guy's poor girlfriend as she shouts those lame, pointless lyrics into her boyfriend's face. Hello, police? Yeah, there's a physcho at the mall...yeah, she keeps going 'hey, hey, you, you, I don't like your girlfriend....

Aw, come on, didn't we run out of Avril hatred five years ago? I have to admit, though, she does seem to be taking a step backward: The OS sounds like a great song for a 17-year-old high school kid to crank out, but she's 22 and married now. It's time to move on. By a really weird coincidence, the security code listed below was "ARW." Which makes me think that if someone had told me, "I don't like your girlfriend," they'd get a spell put on them. And not in a fun, John Barry kind of way!

Oh My God. You are my savior. I dispise this song. With a passion. Of intense hot white flames. Especially because walking out of the movies yesterday with my boyfriend, some random girl (insert bad word here) came up to us and sang it. I was ready to drop kick her, but he said "No, just wait." So we waited until she finished, 5 minutes of my life wasted away, and he replied, "Hey! Hey! You! Yeah! I don't like your fa-ace." and promptly walked away. Guys rock. Especially you. Keep up the good work please, and death to stupid gerbils. =]
