The Lyrics

This is a little exaggerated... but not much. Listen to my recordings for proof
Used midis of low quality
As amateur as one can get
If you found me you might hit me
Since I have not hit the right note yet

My vocal training was plainly
Useless or there was none
My shower singing is fine but outside
People run

Idolized just by lovers of din
If music's holy then I always sin
Lock me up 'cause I sing way off key
But cause of the words I don't agree
That it's skill-free junk
That it's skill-free junk

Took current hit songs, changed all the words
And then I tried to be musical
Most of my songs look good on paper
But my recordings ruin them all

I got scathing reviews about my voice
They are annoyed I don't sound like pros
It's difficult when you don't have a budget
To find someone who might hit notes

So I try singing some of my songs
It's not important if it all sounds wrong
Cause then I show what I wrote could be
Recorded somewhat competently

Singing is real tough
Singing is real tough
Singing is real tough
Singing is real tough

Although I'd be fined
For breach of the peace
If I tried to sing songs loudly in the streets
My music's designed more as comedy
So can't you forget with laughter that I sing poorly

Took current hit songs, changed all the words
And kinda tried to be musical

I know Simon would say I'm insane
And that I'm horrible and he's in pain
If I tried out for his vocal show
That's why there's no way I'm gonna go
And be William Hung
And be William Hung
And be William Hung
And be William Hung

It's so very hard to sing this right
Oh so very hard to sing this right

Though I try singing some of my songs
And try my hardest not to get it wrong

It's so very hard to sing stuff right
And i will eventually make a no-budget recording of this

until you get a singer, don't waste your time recording. nobody who has listened once will ever listen again. this is not meant in a viscious sense, just constructive criticism.not everybody can sing, and to do it poorly is worse than not doing it at all. surely you can find a singer in a bar or somewhere who can help you out, without costing anything.good luck, and keep writing

Hey Ethan - as one who also cannot sing I admire your gutsiness in putting your recordings out and the critics be damned! (And by the way, you now owe me two hours of voting for the time I spent trying to get a copy of the OS - hee hee) ;-)

OK, don't get me wrong I do like maroon five but I am saying it honestly, I listened to the song while I was reading the parody and it was way off and the guy who was like 'it does sound like it' he is a liar! it don't sound like it. sure just because the syllables match up in the parody and the song doesn't mean it sounds right.
