The Lyrics

Remember that old Nintendo game, Paper boy? I never could beat it...that game was so heres a parody about it

I appologuise for the suckyness of this parody
He was a boy, He had a job
He needed to deliver the paper

He had a route, He had a task
Hope he'd do it fast

I controlled him, Playing the game
delivering in hail, sleet or rain

But there's problems, that he did meet
Things were always happening on that street

Yelling at Paper Boy, Playing it on my game boy
Bumping into the obstacles
Want to run those kids down, Think its fun to jump around
Their antics is making me absurd

Gone down the street, Im on my way
Throwing the papers to them today

Some idiot kid, Jumps right in front
Tries to get run over, what a c*nt!

I try to dodge him, I swerve to the right
But then I hit some jack*ss who's on a bike

Narrowly miss the sewer grating
Oh, this game is truly frustrating

Yelling at Paper Boy, Playing it on my game boy
Bumping into the obstacles
Idiot kids who play
In the streets everyday
You better move or I'll run you down!

This stupid game I can not win
Keep bumping into everything
I cant make it there in time
Where the hell's the finish line

Lesions to these kids I'll teach
There's a dog without a leash
worker with a jackhammer
and angry man without a shirt

He's was a boy, he has a job
He needed to deliver the papers

But all these kids, they're making it hard
hard for me to do the job

Yelling at Paper Boy, Playing it on my game boy
Hoping to beat the obstacles
I'm bumping into the things
game overs happening
quitting because all these a**holes Comments?

I actually always found paperboy to be a relatively easy game to beat. If my nintendo wasn't 200 miles away in storage i could probably have it beat within the half hour but its probably easier on a tv screen than on game boy. About your parody it was ok but i think you should've tried a little harder to keep it clean and unless the gameboy version is different there's never kids in the street just grates and cars.

well, i actully havent played the game boy version in a long long time...but the song was in more reference t o the nintendo version, it just didnt sound right to say "Yelling at Paper Boy, Playing it on my Nintendo", it fit better with game boy. And, yeah there were only cars and grates in the street, but all the kids and other things were on the sidewalks, and it didnt fit that way either lol. Either way, I still could never beat it, I dont know why, I guess I just didnt have the coordination or patience or something. Now back to the actual parody, I usually try to keep my stuff clean, but I only add the "bad words" when it adds to the humor. Its part of the art of the parody writing, the words are just meant make it funnier, not to offend anyone (although I don tknow how anyone can be offended by insults to cartoon kids in a video game, but whatever lol). Either way, the parody sucks in my opinion
