The Lyrics

I'm pretty sure we've all gone through this at some stage, so hopefully you can all relate to it...
What an amusing time
They're like family
3 dragging days go by
Still there's only me

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock,

Submitted a parody and waited for votes
I waited all week long and not a single comment came
Can it be said that you're all biast?
Just 'cause he's your best friend you give him all fives
I know mine's just as good why don't you click and take a look?
Time is short i've gotta go
Oh! Oh-Oh!

What they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting for?
What they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting for?

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock
Take a look you stupid bores

Now i'm getting angry cos you gave me all 1s
Who really cares you're all messed up why aren't you giving me a chance?
Mine took time and lots of effort
His is just a copy of the actual song
So why give him all 5s? I don't think they're really that great
Mine aren't bad they're worth a look
Oh! Oh-Oh!
Oh! Oh!
Oh! Oh!

Look at your posts now
You've got a hundred million emails
You've got your hundred thousand contacts
And they're all crawling up your butt crack

What they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting for?
What they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting for?

I can't wait to post
Rip your songs to shreds
Give you lots of awful marks
Hurry up and vote
I want 5-5-5s
I'll give you all 1-1-1s
No!

Look at your posts now
You've got a billion trillion comments
I'm still waiting for my first catch
Because I think i've got some hot tracks

What they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting for?
What they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting, what they waiting for?

What they waiting for?
What they waiting for?
Hurry up and post a vote
Oh! Oh!
Hurry up 'cause i may go
What they waiting for?
What they waiting for?
Take a chance you never know
Oh! Oh!
Post a vote you're really slow

Wow, when my English teacher told me that some people in our class spelt "biased" like you did, I was amused and doubtful. Anyways, I could relate to the parody and appreciate the humour, but your pacing was average. 3-4-5.

Thanx (i think?). The irony is that yours is the first comment/vote... after 21/2 hours! LOL!

yeah, i can sooooo relate to that too.

Again, DKTOS, but new authors here will usually get little attention ( from what I've seen ). Take your time DAK, I was ready to quit posting here a few weeks ago, because I too put alot of time into many of my parodies, and they got very few votes. Also, this sucks to say, but it seems that most things after about 2000 get little votes anyway, because generally ( atleast IMO ), alot of the music out now sucks, so people don't listen to TOS, let alone your parody ( which may be great ). I could be completely off on the after 2000 thing, it's just a theory. 555's for some come naturally ( earned ), *SOME* are patting from other parodists, who should maybe rate a song say 544 or 455 but go ahead with 555 anyway. Also, I have given ( and received )some odd votes like 224, 253, 345, 515 and so on ( even got a 551 from a guy once--go figure ). I also have some songs ( very few ) with perfect 555, and some that were just 111'd because they didn't like the subject matter. I noticed you leave the comments box checked which is very good because you can't get feedback on a low vote if it isn't. PS- I have only ever given a single 2 and a single 3 for pacing. There are some parodies that are so incomplete/non-rhyming that they don't count as a parody from me, so no 1 on pacing ( I just don't vote it ). Anyway, keep em coming, and keep them funny too. If I had to rate this parody w/o hearing TOS, I would say 524 ( no vote recorded ), because while it is understandable, not particulary funny ( it does look well paced ). No criticism intended, just want to offer some guidance that may hekp you some. :) PSS- You may know of sarcasm already, as you are certainly not a " Dumb A$$ Kid ", alot of the parodies Ive seen from you have been interesting topics, I just DKTOS. My music collection pretty much stopped in 1996, have maybe 5 CD's from 97-02.

Thanx, Red Ant. Out of everyone who posts comments, you seem to be the only one who actually knows what they're talking about...

Good parody-- I'm just going to make your point that I have no idea what I'm talking about by asking, what does "DKTOS" stand for?
Red Ant to Tristessa - March 27, 2005 - Report this comment
DKTOS is Don't Know The Original Song. IKTOS, is I Know The Original Song. DRTOS ( used occasionally ) is Don't Remember The Original Song. DKTPL ( used rarely ) is Don't Know The Parody Language ( there are a few parodies completely done in other languages ) and TOS is The Original Song. Hope that helps some. :)

Sweet Jesus, is the pacing really THAT bad? I could sing along with it fine... are you sure you're all looking at the original song words / singing along to the right song?!
Red Ant to Dumb A$$ Kid - March 28, 2005 - Report this comment
The pacing may not be that bad, you got almost unilateral 3 on it. Another tip--Some people will dock you on pacing if you use too much of TOS in your parody ( not sure if that's the case here, DKTOS ).
Dumb Ass Kid - March 29, 2005 - Report this comment
No, I've never used a full line of the original (By Gwen Stefani), just odd words so I can't really be marked down there. Maybe it's because my chorus is similar to the actual chorus: what you waiting for/what they waiting for. But even still, there are worse examples of this, which have got better marks for pacing. See, this is what's frustrating. If people left comments about it telling me what's wrong, I would be able to fix it, but instead they're just voting and saying things like 'Okay parody but the pacing could be better' - how the f*** am I supposed to know what to fix if they're commenting like that??!!?

4 4 2 Sorry... I don’t like it. Even though it’s funny and have a good pacing.

It's okay, Andrew. Everyone's entitled to an opinion, and at least you've had the guts to admit it (unlike some - flashes stony glare at Josh2)
Mufasa - April 03, 2005 - Report this comment
I can totally relate to your parody. It's true, too many people hardly vote or say anything. I just don't come too often to this site, but when I do, I give comments unlike others who probably do come a lot and have nothing to say.
Dumb Ass Kid - April 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Well said, Mufasa. It's good to see that i'm not the only one on this site who shares this view
Blethar - April 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Just been looking at some of your other stuff, and I just have to say sorry for the patrionizing comment I made. Your parodies are WAY better then mine.
Dumb Ass Kid - April 04, 2005 - Report this comment
I'll make sure i take a look at your parodies sometime, Blethar. And what patronizing comment? I would say 'apology accepted', but I don't know which comment you mean. if you mean the one you made about this parody earlier, you really don't need to apologize at all. I've had far worse comments than that! I honestly didn't find it patronizing in any way. I thought you were just expressing your opinion, which you have the right to do...
Blethar - April 05, 2005 - Report this comment
See first comment - Section about spelling. I'm not really one to criticize either, seeing as before my computer had spellcheck I never proof-read parodies. Those mistakes still remind me of my...mistake.

Oh, I hadn't even noticed. thanx anyways, blethar. I had a look at some of your stuff. i was a bit short of time so i didn't rate or comment, but it was pretty good.

You know what, I disagree with most people here. Dumb Ass Kid, you are excellent, I bow down to you, and I appreciate your sense of sarcasm and humor. All of your parodies are so relate-able, and they are just awesome. And Red Ant, who cares about your judging criteria. Just vote for what you think, say what you have to say, and get on with your life. The only thing that parodists, as you say, want to hear is what people think of their parody. That's it. Dumb Ass Kid, excellent, you've out done yourself again, I am a big fan of your work.

[Stares at screen, eyes wide and mouth down to the floor, speechless]....wow.....er.....thanks!!! I really don't know how else to respond to such positivity because i've never had anyone say anything like that to me before! And considering i'm only a small fry on this site, it's quite an achievement to have a self-confessed fan. Wow! I truly am speechless. Thank you so very much, geniuskid, you've just made my day!!! btw, to anyone else reading this, geniuskid and i are NOT the same person

I know this is been on a while, but I just had to vote. I came over from the "Speed of Sound" parody. Excellent work amigo! This song, however, is so relatable. 4-4-4 =)
