The Lyrics

Hehehe, I'm back, with my song parodies that function as a rhyming livejournal for me. This one's weird--it's about my quest for, and finally, my acquiring of an internship with a local newspaper that roughly two million people from school wanted, including the most competitive human being on the face of the Earth. But it all worked out in the end, as you shall read below. :-)
8 a.m., on Monday, I am praying
The Nashville Scene won't find someone who is cooler than me.
They've got an internship I want more than anything,
I have potential but I'm still not sure what that means.

And every day,
My first wish is for the phone to ring.
Please let them select me!

I speak fluent Spanish
Write for local websites
My heavenly references
Should bring tears to their eyes

It's like a bad movie
Why won't they choose me?
If you were me, then you'd be
Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
I attempt desperately,
To obtain the job all the word geeks want.
To get the job all the word geeks want!

After a few weeks of anxious, panicked waiting
I give up hope; my writing samples must have been really bad.
I'm pretty sure those bastards gave the job to Maggie
I hope they know that I'm the best that they'll never have

Still, every day,
My first wish is for the phone to ring.
Please let them select me!

I speak fluent Spanish
Write for local websites
My heavenly references
Should bring tears to their eyes!

Then one day the phone rings
Mom says it's for me
I got the job, they say
And, so can I start today?

This is really groovy
Looks as if they choose me
I wonder is Maggie is
Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
As I shout joyfully,
'Cause I got the job all the word geeks want.
I got the job all the word geeks want!
I got the job all the word geeks want!
I got the job all the word geeks want!

I'm back once again
With parodies, bragging of victory
My readers think I oughta be sedated
They should know how anxiously I waited!

Because of AP Spanish
And my local websites
And my writing samples
Were quite spiffy in their eyes
I got my first big task
And they mailed me a cool press pass
This summer should rock hard....rock hard.....rock hard.....

This is really groovy
Can't believe they'd choose me
All the ones who aren't me are
Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
'Cause they tried desperately,
To obtain the job all the word geeks want.

Got the job all the word geeks want!
Got the job all the word geeks want!
Got the job all the word geeks want!
Got the job all the word geeks want!
(This rocks my socks off)
Got the job all the word geeks want!
Got the job all the word geeks want!
(This rocks my socks off)
Got the job all the word geeks want!
Got the job all the word geeks want!

Wow, that's really awesome, both in terms of the parody and in terms of getting the job. Also awesome is that I just happened to read the main page of this site today, when you had a new parody up, given that I *never* check anymore. I have sooo many parody ideas that probably won't ever get written. But I know what you mean about the job - I got a job at a computer camp for this summer, that pays 400 bucks a week and should also be loads of fun.

P.S. What's the job? I'm a word geek for sure, but I can't think of any newspaper jobs I'd be excited about. Just cause I like words doesn't mean I like writing, after all.

Wow, congratulations on your first job! I'm a fellow word geek, and writing for a real newspaper is like, my dream Summer job. Me, i'll have to wait for school to start in a couple months so I can write for their paper. You live in Nashville? I used to live in Memphis! Ahem, offtopic, sorry. Back to the parody, excellent job. The pacing was spot-on. I would've executed a few things differently, but it's just real nit-picky stuff that you'd expect from one of the only two officers of the Grammar Police (the other being my best friend). Well, I think that's all I have to say! Congratulations once again! -Erin
