The Lyrics

Yes, this is a parody of the whooooole album. Please read the first 11, then it just gets worse, so you don't have to read the last two : ) Look here for jokes that only watchers of the show would understand. The subliminal ads part is because the judges always drink out of Coca-Cola cups.I think that's it for this parody.
I wanna be an American Idol, yeah.
I want to be praised by all of America.
Don't know why it causes such hysteria.
With subliminal ads for Coca-Cola

Is this show here for your temptation
To be a singing sensation?
Or did they make it for monay?
Television screams for my hollers.
Of course this likely profits dollars.
At least I make an album.

Well, maybe I'll try out for America.
The top priority on my agenda..
Then I could be part of the propaganda.
And sing a song from the age of disco era.

So I went down to an audition
And I fulfilled my new mission
Believe it or not, it all went ok.
Even in my dreams, I would fail.
Who knew I'm the one that they'd hail?
I'm not the one to argue.

I wanna be an American Idol, yeah.
So I can be part of the media.
I would cause a lot of hysteria
Just by singing songs written by another man.

Is this show here for your temptation
To be a singing sensation?
Or did they make it for monay?
Television screams for my hollers.
Of course this likely profits dollars.
At least I make an album.

I always thought that the American Idiot title was based on American Idol.
