The Lyrics

#21. A simple cry against unmerited criticism.
I have to write this parody before the next update
They didn't like the last one and I do not like to wait
Making little votes so low to remind me I'm not the best
Should've worked more on the rhyme scheme and the pacing and the rest
There's a biting to my pride, cuz even though some aren't as great
A vote of praise is all I want from you. Do I only work for hate?
I know I always listen and sing it, put the syllables in place
And when it sucks well that is one thing
But do I need this disgrace?

Rate me today
Rate me tomorrow
I'm sick of triple 1's that bring my average down

Rate me with praise
It pays off for hard work
Rate me so I can finally see these skills in me

I've worked on this for three whole hours, what an accomplishment or a waste of time
The one vote that always makes me look bad is the one vote I don't want again
In a strange way I'd like to thank you for pushing me hard to get it right
While you were quickly passing comments yourself, I was striving to earn delight
I sometimes doubted my choice of phrases on lines from part of the first verse
But I could compliment myself on all the pacing I've rehearsed
So I'll let your rating votes appear, and I swear they're genuine
And so whatever you think in your heart, place it on the line

Rate me today
Rate me tomorrow
I'm sick of triple 1's that bring my average down

Rate me with praise
It pays off for hard work
Rate me so I can finally see these skills in me

And feeling hopeful I log on to amiright
Clicking links here on the page for every lyric I wrote last night
And like an honest boy I never vote for mine
I'll let my hard work show itself and all my votes are genuine
But still I sit down thinking, "Rate it high today!"
Just click a 5 real quick and that's where I want to be
Cuz if I've earned it, please will you do this for me?

Rate me today
Rate me tomorrow
I'm sick of triple 1's that bring my average down

Rate me with praise
It pays off for hard work
Rate me so I can finally see these skills in me
In me
In me

"They didn't like the last one"; come again? I suggest you reread the comment there by myself. Also, everyone gets 1 votes. I know they can be disheartening to newer authors, but, uh, you've gotten a total of 4 of them spread across 21 parodies. Not exactly like the 1-person is stalking you.

The pacing is excellent here (I do know TOS and listened to it while reading this), and it's an understandable view you have. We all want praise and comments, so my suggestion to you is to start leaving some yourself. 544.

Since I'm apparently the slowest writer ever on the site, I gotta give you 5's for being able to write this "in three hours" alone! Good job!

Hey, I know everyone gets 1's, and that's why I wrote it for everyone to relate to. I know this parody makes it sound like I'm personally frustrated about it, but I'm actually quite satisfied with my ratings, I know if I work hard to match the pacing then the ratings will follow. I try to leave comments, although most of the parodies are to old songs that I simply have had no exposure to.

Good job!555 As long as you know this song by heart, II would never give you such a score (I wrote a parody of this song too, but instead of it being about getting a low score, it was also about getting a low score from people who don't even KNOW THE DANG SONG! WELL DONE!!)

I gave you all fives because you matched the pacing, and I can relate to the topic (I would like more 5's too!)

Lol. I sang this to the instrumental of 'Hate Me'. I would have recorded but my voice sucks... GREAT pacing. and great subject matter. We've all been victim to unconstructive criticism and people who type in their comment thinking the song was a parody of 'Barbie Girl'... well...not everyone. Keep it up. all 5s
