The Lyrics

Wrote this one day as a double-parody where I take one song's lyrics and "port" it to another song's melody in a humorous or ironic manner since I haven't done that in a while, and it so it just occurred that Eminem did a performance of "Lose Yourself" at the Oscars with Idina Menzel herself in the audience. I thought maybe juxtaposing the two together would make for quite a laugh.
Yo, his palms are getting sweaty
And knees trembling cold
Puked with mom's spaghetti
Tried to spit out some rhymes; stage fright took hold
What he just wrote down
With the crowd, he couldn't groan
He's all nervous
And he dropped the microphone

He has always been impoverished
Stayed in a trailer park
Waged rap battles, too
Yet he's afraid to bark

Lose yourself
The moment, you own it
Lose yourself
It's your chance
This is the moment you're yearning for
All of your life
Lose yourself
Yo, mate, it's your turn
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah

His soul is all escaping
All this world I could own
A normal life is boring
But stardom feels stale; he's far from home
Barely knows his only daughter
Feeling washed up deep inside
The beat goes on
'Till break of dawn
I'm taking on them with rhymes!

Lose yourself
The moment, you own it
Just one shot
Will get you far
This is the moment you're yearning for
All of your life
Yo, lose yourself
Let us see what you got

Cease all these games
Change what's called rage
Tear this roof off
Like two dogs caged
Oh, the mood all changed
Like a new page
This is my shot
Feet fail me not

You got paintballs, I can see
(Ah ah ah ah)
If you shoot them
(Ah ah ah ah)
It's a felony
"Come on homies, cops around
We'll be found!"

Lose yourself
The moment, you own it
Lose yourself
Never let it go
This is the moment you're yearning for
All of your life
(All of my life)
Oh, lose yourself

Ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
