The Lyrics

It's about how tone-deaf I am.
Rap Chorus:
From the high notes to the low notes
High to low I sing
My singing is so rotten
But that doesn't mean a thing
The crowd starts to boo me
But I don't care
A nice singing voice
Is not a gift that I bear

Verse 1:
The audience can't wait for the concert to end
They try to sit back and try to pretend
That my singing isn't bad/but is is
And they cannot help but be pissed
So with their ears plugged shut/They've nearly had enough
A spotlight shines upon me
So bright I can't see the audience's facial reactions
So I just assume they're looks of satisfaction

(Rap Chorus)

Vocal Chorus:
Up here on stage you'll find me
Singing and stuff
They crowd is starting to leave
Because they've had quite enough

Verse 2:
Looking all around/I've suddenly found
Pullution manifested in my vocal sound
And as my eyes more round I find empty seats
And only hardcore fans moving to the beat
And a piece of cardboard with some words and a picture drawn,
It says, "I hate all Winkin Shark songs"
But I look away, everythings okay
Now that the haters have all gone

(Rap Chorus) x2
(Vocal Chorus)

So they don't like my act
What's up with that?
All my fans seem to really like me

(Vocal Chorus)x2

"Interesting..." lol I love when I get to write about stuff that's actually a problem for me. It's still a silly thing, but I can relate to it, and draw material from real stuff, rather than making it up like "When It Hits", and "A Guy Named Ray" (although the later is probably my most famous parody), and "A Place For my Red" isn't really based on real life, just a kind of joke I had in real life. Anyway, my singing is really "Rotten", and the remix is probably my best-done thing, in a way it's pretty good lyrically (like the other remix, though, of "When It Hits", it's a little iffy with the pacing at certain parts), but mostly music-wise it's great. Anyway, the original here is pretty cool. But I'd like it if I got a comment that said something more than just "Interesting..."

I hope this isn't an LP bashing parody, cuz you would be so dead! I'll just pretend it's an Avril Lavinge Bashing Parody.

No, it's not a Linkin Park bashing song, just read "Linkin Park Dissing", and "Linkin Park is(n't) Gay" (plus the even better remixed lyrics), to see my opinion on anything bashing Linkin Park. I'm making fun of myself, not of Linkin Park...maybe you should have read my own comments here before posting an assumption about me bashing LP.
