The Lyrics

CHOO! CHOO! All abourd the hype traiNO.

You feel hyped? Don't
You shouldn't get hyped, no
You feel hyped? Don't
"I want it" Stop it "Want it" Stop it

You're feelin' real hyped? No, it's a load of shit
Looks I'm gonna have to lecture you upon the evils of hype
Because the stuff you think will be so great
When it finally gets pushed out, it might be shit
Listen to hype? Don't, better to ignore it
Cause you're gonna be pissed
If that new film turns out to be a huge load
I've learned this from experience, for
I'm a nerdy little schmuck who's fallen for all the hype, don't be me

Don't read, don't read the hype, easy
Don't read the tweets of hype, peasy
Don't see the teasers, quite tricky
Don't, please, believe the hype, buddy

Gettin' hyped? Don't
You shouldn't get hyped, no
Gettin' hyped? Don't
"I want it" Stop it "Want it" Stop it

You still feelin' hyped? So damn naïve
Gettin' attached to preconceived notion's one of the evils of hype
You excitedly come up with theories
Yet what's the dashed hopes and dreams count? Ninety percent!
Listen to hype? Don't, it can make one peeved
When things you hate, dude, make you
Want to see it anyway, it blows
Gettin' dragged to what ends up a bore
Cause the trailers made it look so awesome, but that's the hype, don't believe

Believe, believe the hype? Pity
Believe, believe the hype? Silly
Givin' in to the hype's easy
Ignorin' all the hype's tricky

Sure, it may not suck, might even be great
But you know the months of delays just makes the hype train bigger
Can be agonisin' when you're waitin' for the next action thriller
Thread discussions cause much frustration in me
Which rumoured scenes will be right? Which will be pure lies?
Am I hypin' this a tad? Maybe
Like to be surprised by ev'rythin' in store
Don't want my hopes destroyed by marketin' galore
Little hard these days, so much pre-release lore
Teasers for teaser trailers, overwhelmin' dorks
My cynical ass tends to expect a bore
And so I'm thankful it's rarely that, I implore
Ignore the hype, go "low expectations" like me

Get, get, get, get, get hyped? Don't
Get, get, get, avoid all the hype, bro
Get, get, get, get, get hyped? No
Get, get, get, "I want it, want it" Stop it
Get hyped? Don't (hype? No), get, get, get
Don't give in to hype, bro, get, get, get, get
Get hyped? Don't (hype? No), get, get, get
Stop gettin' all hyped, bro, "I want it" Stop it "Want it" Stop it

Normally I choose singles for these Artistry parodies, but this time I reasoned "bugger it". On a similarly "only I care" note, I just had to add "peasy" to the Firefox dictionary.

Almost impossible to pace songs by this band no matter how hard one tries - 455 with a bullet. BTW - I follow to stay ahead of the hype! ;-)

Hype can kill anything, but not this one.

This was... okay.... I think it would of been better with some examples such as people getting all excited for "Phantom Menace" or something similar to that. Not a bad parody just not really LOL funny.

(Artistry) I'm a huge cinephile so hype is a constant hazard for me on a daily basis. I've become pretty good at tempering expectations, but I liked the I want it/stop it, gag because that's what I do all the time! Some examples would've been fun and added specificity. You could've trashed some of your personal disappointments and had fun cracking jokes at them. It was just a little broad, so the laughs were a bit limited. I still had fun with it, though!
