The Lyrics

Here is another reality show based parody.
Don't wanna be on American Idol.
Don't like that show, it's all over the media
Don't like the judge named Simon Cowell.
Acts like he has something up his butthole

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the young adult nation
Everything looks like its not O.K.
They could be the stars of tomorrow
They walk off the show with their sorrow.
Does that sound like a good show to you?

But that show is loved by America.
People add it to their agenda
They got every type of propaganda.
But it just makes me full of paranoia

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the young adult nation
Everything looks like its not O.K.
They could be the stars of tomorrow
They walk off the show with their sorrow.
Does that sound like a good show to you?

Don't wanna be on American Idol.
Don't like that show, it's all over the media
Don't like the judge named Simon Cowell.
Acts like he has something up his butthole

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the young adult nation
Everything looks like its not O.K.
They could be the stars of tomorrow
They walk off the show with their sorrow.
Does that sound like a good show to you?

It seems as if nobody can make a funny parody of American Idiot. I might have to do it myself. Oh yeah, and lay off Simon.
