The Lyrics

Coldplay is slowly growing on me as they are reminiscent of many other great artists including Sting, Radiohead, Audioslave/softer Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers and even a wee bit like Simon & Garfunkel. However, it is a PITA to make parodies of songs from the "X&Y" album that accurately represent the pacing/stressing/carrying of syllables. Not to mention karaoke. So, this is how you do both......
[organ intro, sounds like funeral music]

When you spend your cash on a new CD..
It is not what you want, but the price was cheap..
Then Chris Martin sounds.., like he's a-sleep..
You might have her..-Her..-heard

And your ears start steaming red's your face..
When you hear something that's hard to pace..
You get so annoyed and then trash your place..
It does get wor..-Er..-erse

Why's he care,-air-air,-air-air,-y on?
For so ver,-air-air,-air-air,-y long
But I will try...
To sing you

And scale up above not down too low..
The soprano range I'll need to know..
But your average guy can't hit these notes..
And not some gir..-Er..-irls

Do in-flec,-eck-eck,-eck-ect your tone
And o-ver,-er-er,-er-er emote
And that's how I...
Will sing you

[long instrumental/faster tempo]

Now scream!
Out my.. face!
Oh wait a minute I'm singing Cold Play!
With no.. bass
And blah,-blah-blah,-blah-blah,-AHH-ahh...

Lungs bleed!
Dogs run away!
I never should try a hard car-ry okay!
End your.. pain
And mi,-i-i,-i-i,-AHH-ine...

[resume soft piano and regular tempo]

But this song,-on-on,-on-ong I owned
Be-cause I,-ah-ah,-ah-I just droned
And didn't try...
To sing you

Thanks Alvin and Melissa- the comment exchange we had a few days ago about this OS is how it got started.

I almost docked you points for calling sting a great artist, but I guess he had his moments, especially with The Police, and this parody had its own de do do do, de da da da moments so I can see/feel the associations coming up, and some 5s with them.

This was me with my last CD. I don't know this song, but I was hoping you had a link so I could follow along.

Thanks AFW, Peter and Pat. Peter, Sting was a margin call but Coldplay sounds very much like him, moreso than anyone else.

I like this song and coldplay. I did not find this funny. Chris Martin unlike some has thoughtful lyrics in his songs and his music comes from the heart. He is not asleep he is just not a hyper rocker weirdo. I think this parody is rude and insensitive even though we all have our own opinions.

YAYA, you'll notice I didn't make fun of the lyrics of the song, rather the delivery of them. 'Rude, insensitive and not funny': I have so got to record this.

I am a fan of Coldplay, but this song totally hit home. Despite the fact that I am a girl, I find it incredibly hard to sing along with Chris Martin...but I do it anyway and make everyone around me suffer. I have to say that the asleep thing was a little rude, but the parody was very good(I sang it along with the song...and I had a hard time not laughing at some parts)

Jack - This is Kara OK. A note of interest - Karaoke is actually a Jinglish word. It is a combination of the Japanese word 'kara" meaning empty and "oke" which is a Japanese abbreviation for the English word Orchestra. So the term "karaoke" actually means empty orchestra. This parody is intereSTINGly original.

Red , you bass turd, you went and made a parody better than mine. Great meta-humor and satire as always, this was more than "carry OK!".

(ABC5) I like singing along to Coldplay, though I have to go an octave lower, and even then it's a bit too high. Pacing was right on the nail, and kudos for writing out every syllable. 555!

ABC5(S) Nice job of turning the OS on itself!!!...555!!!

Hey, I like the OS!!!... this was very good. 555

(ABC) you really are king of the turning-the-song-on-itself parody category Jack - and the soprano tones of Gwyneth's feminine half was a great target - good work - 555
Melanie Lee - October 16, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) "Carry okay?" And did you just rhyme "carry" with "very"? (Might be a regional thing; we don't do that in New York.) Anyway, hilarious stuff, and I like how you stretched out your syllables. I like the theme and your turning the song on itself. Great job. 555 and a microphone!

Yeah, that's about right. I actually quite dislike ColdPlay, not that I've had a reason to disclose that before now, so for me it's just another deserving song for the hit--which you do so well. . .
