The Lyrics

Turn the mike up
And the song begins
Shall I sing of love,
Or my good friend,
Or 'bout being happy?
We'll see, we'll see
It depends on how I feel this week

So I sing out
To cafe crowd
I'm just one skinny guitar strummer well-endowed
Singing stories
Stories
Let it move ya
That's what I do
That's what I do

Got such charms
Solemnity
And boyish face
Plus my big rhyming dictionary
No cares or strife
Vegan living
Singing stories
Let it move ya
That's what I do
That's what I do

This song will show
How life is gold
It's a maze, keeps rolling on so painfully slow
Which way will this tune go?
It grows and grows
You see it all just goes nowhere
Next verse I almost forgot

I sing out proud
Venue crowd
This is just another guitar stummer singing loud
Singing stories
Indulge me with this boring, boring, boring song for you
That's what I do
That's what I do

The bridge of the song, extending
Needs a bit more comprehending
It's all me
More of the themes that I screen
I sing of love
And the skies above
It's beyond...typical song length, it's too late

Still I sing out
To easy crowds
I sing to 10 thousand paying suckers gathered round
I sing my boring, boring, boring song to you
Just for you
That's what I do
That's what I do

I'll sell my CDs to you
And you'll download bootlegs, too
Though it's blather
I get Grammys, too!
They say,
When I scat it's smooth as ice
It sounds real nice
Shaaa be-bop
Sham-on, scoo-dooby-doo die

I sing out
To this crowd
To all those 10 million record buyers in hip towns
And I'm so proud
I sing hoary stories, stories, stories
All for you, all for you
All for you, HA!
(I'm just an ordinary boy, extraordinarily boring)
Just for you
That's what I do

Well done. Picking this song you actually found a Jason Mraz song that I actually hate. Sure he usually sticks to happy topics but is there anything wrong with that? It's better than when he's depressed like with this tune. Ugh, This OS is terrible!

When I saw the song title, I just knew that this was the right song to parody. :)

You perfectly described my own feelings about this particular subject.

(Artistry) So, how do you really feel about Mraz? Don't hold back. :-) The scary thing is, if he sang these lyrics his audience would eat it up and ask for more.

(Artistry) This is Jason Mraz? I was expecting Jon Butler Trio lite, not this dreary sludge. Still, great parody here, I don't have any strong opinions towards Mraz, but I did enjoy your venting here. 555!

(Artistry) I agree with Matty, this OS sucks! But the parody that you created from it was great! LOL!

Even though I overall have no strong opinion Mraz, this was an accurate criticism. It was funny, relevant, and fair without, got good laughs. . .very fun
