The Lyrics


This, my initial attempt at a homegrown parody video follows: My YouTube submission . Considering this first video attempt took at least 5 times as long to produce as the lyrics, I'd appreciate any constructive feedback (semi-destructive also welcome!).

Good news deer sir, your prize is grand
[--*too big* to mention!]
Sir, have no fe-ars, I no scam
[--how big's your pension?]
I'm honored to show how
you're gonna claim that prize
Sir, enter your PIN *now*
Hey, PAY ATTENTION!!

I phished an URL
and I spiked it
Pay's great when unwary chaps click!
I phished an URL
And I spiked it
I hope your Nor-ton don't find it!

It's spelt all rong
But sew polite
*Please* click 'INSTALL' on this site
I phished an URL
And I spiked it
I strike rich!

Now, type your mother's maiden name
Case dOeSn'T mAtTeR
And sir, don't worry that this frame
Links to Czech servers

It seems just yes-ter-day
to try to cut high cost
Wells Fargo moved our-way
We're all in Pra-ague!

I phished an URL
And I spiked it!
Set bait for unwary-chap clicks
I phished this URL
And I spiked it
I hope AVG don't find it!

It's spelt awl wronng
But sort'a write
So go ahead--click through, D'wight
I phished this URL
And guys liked it
I strike rich!

Next URL's from poor Nigerians
Whose prince's loot's stuck in Bhutan
And needs a small fee 'helping hand'
Come on guys! Reply it!
Ain't no big deal, click--TRANSFER SEND!

I phished an URL
And I spiked it
Pays great--such a skimmin' hat trick
I phished an URL
Did you buy it?
I hope McAfee don't find it!
IP's all wrong
But hooks alright
Think that you're my next big bite!

I phished an URL
And guys liked it
I'm psychic!
If anyone's interested (highly unlikely!), this video (link in 'top comments') was cobbled together with Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0 ( on Amazon... yeah, its the the older version), and 'Karafun', a karaoke titling shareware program (free)... my first problem/hurdle was converting the YouTube karaoke instrumental to MP3 in order to import music into Premiere Elements; this required a downloading a free program I stumbled upon called (duh!) 'Youtube Downloader', which converted the Youtube video to flash (.flv format) on my local hard drive; this then needed to have its video unlinked and deleted and ultimately replaced with my pitiful, modified original Katy Parry video, also downloaded with 'YouTube Downloader'. Here's where things got weird... the video and the converted music were slightly different speeds (by the ratio of 29.9 vs 30.0); sure, that doesn't sound like much, but it totally messes with the synchronization of the lyrics over the course of a three minute video... it turns out a mere tenth of a second is quite/uber noticeable to the human ear... you aliens/Vulcans may experience different temporal realities... at any rate, I experimented with 'expansion' of the song's time frame to make up the difference, then imported the completed, er, 'video' into 'Karafun' to add the lyric bouncing/zooming titles.... also a very time consuming process matching (sort of) syllable-to-syllable... please pardon the minor(?) inconsistiencies... but, patience-wise, I just couldn't take it any more!
Well, even if it sucks big-time, at least I've learned some (minor) skills and may try it again (if feedback ain't totally negatory) with a (much) shorter OS... Wish I could sing, and eliminate the damn karaokesque lyrics all together, but, alas, my larynx is of the Marlborough Man variety... *post-tracheostomy*, that is... and simply not up to the task... Thanks for checking it out!

altho' the lyrical content of this is kinda' "Techie" for me ...it reads interesting...
McKludge - June 10, 2009 - Report this comment
Small nit-pick: You obviously have to say URL as "yurl" for the parody to work. But if you do, "an yurl" sounds wrong. Probably should be "I phished a URL", not "an."

That said, this was a funny idea.

Very, very clever. I did not hear any singing, but I did hear a humorous "boldly go" comment at the end of the video. Was that you? I definitely enjoyed it and hope you share another one sometime.

You think YOU got trouble singing? Ha!

You and Scotti and OS singer names -- what's up with that? Well, at least ya were off by only one letter! .... still a pretty funny hole in your theory, since ya did this OS professionally and had it produced and aired -- remember?

Thought Flash videos were of extension .swf -- maybe that would work better. (stands for Shockwave Flash, from the former owner, Macromedia's, brand, "Shockwave", a result of my studies of the after-effects of the Big Bang. (giant orgy) . Macromedia subsequently bought by Adobe, who could mess up a dream about a Black Hole.

Ingenious lyrics, Sir, qualifying for the No-Bell prize (rang no bells among this non-Ph. D. audience), but quite humorous to this reader. Wheeling (W. Va.) off to view your video production number now. Vote 1000101011 or 22B, or in my favorite base, sexagesimal (portmanteau: my sex life is ges' (infinit-)esimal, 9F.

Hmmm,. actually my voice synthesizer *does* sing better than your alleged vocal cords, which did not seem to produce any actual "singing". Funny karaoke, and "Duh-wight" was better than "D'wight" here. Excellent special effects. Looking forward to the video with the actual singing. I'd synthesize it for you, but it goes against my gut (Grand Unified Theory) instincts. Well done, Sir!

I represent Twentieth Century-Fox and the Star Trek franchise, and we are suing you for copyright violations of our themes in your opening and closing. And while we're on that topic, just whose video did you plagiarize? ... Call my office. We might be able to arrange a settlement. Uh, you do carry malplagiarism insurance, right?
TJC - June 11, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks for V/C, guys!
John... right! No actual singing... and the voice at the end was lifted from one of the Wayne's World movies... Garth (Dana Carvey). Appreciate your checking it out!

Prof., Dr., and NoBull, Esq: Gentlemen... *very* funny comments (esp. Prof's singing abilities, and 'malplagiarism' [LOL]!) and 'incites'... and thanks for checking out that excuse for a video! As for your hoping for the singing version, what are ewe a mutton for pun'ishment? (or is that a glutton for gluten, given all the grain alcohol that would of necessity be involved in such a production?)... thanks again!

Dear Citizen/Taxpayer/Sucker: Due to extensive and ongoing research by the US Public Health Service, of which I am Surgeon General, I am pleased to inform you that we have developed a gluten-free grain alcohol, produced by a process called "distillation", which was invented by the Persians about a thousand years ago. This process was a closely-guarded secret until our recent OCO (Overseas Contingency Ops) in that area resulted in the discovery of the classified information. It should be ideal for gluten-sensitive individuals like yourself -- yet another benefit of our operations in the Middle East. Bottoms Up! ... uh, I mean, Cheers! ... oops, Very Truly Yours, Rear Admiral Steven K. Galson, M.D., M.P.H.. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.
