The Lyrics

Just when I'd finished the Parody Decathlon, I go and enter the Ages In AmIRight! Just goes to show: I need professional help :P
Since I am
In high school
There are times
When I need to stop working
And take a little break

But when I try
To relax
There's so much
To watch on television
It makes my small brain ache

Should I watch 'Friends'?
'The Simpsons'?
Or 'Neighbours'?
Or maybe 'Aussie Idol'?
'Big Brother'? Wait, that bites

Maybe 'Smallville'?
Oh brother
I think I
Need to go get one of those
New-fangled TV Guides

'The O.C.'?
'The Osbournes'?
'Ev'rybody Loves Raymond'?
Or even 'Gilmore Girls'?

The cricket?
The footie?
Or any other sports show?
This sets my brain a-whirl

This guide is really helpful
To know what shows are on
'Cause they can change around quite suddenly
'The Simpsons' were
At six o'clock
But now it is 'Seinfield'
But it could still change back fortunately

Or maybe not
Or maybe not
I think it should because 'The Simpsons'
Has started their 18th season
18th season
Of course, the bloody Yanks see it first
Forgetting my "Simpsons thirst"

Should I go and buy Foxtel?
It gives more of a choice
Of TV shows: live-action and cartoon
I'll watch 'Spongbob'
And then 'CatDog'
Then maybe 'Hey Arnold!'
Foxtel will keep me glued
All afternoon

And longer still
And longer still
Because there is still Cartoon Network
And Fox8 plus some other ones
Some other ones
That I do not really want to watch
Because I think that they suck

'Powerpuff Girls'? Wait, no, 'Camp Lazlo'
(Oh Oh Ohhhh)
'I Am Weasel' or 'Johnny Bravo'?
(Oh Oh Ohhhh)
Leave me some popcorn
'Cause I will be here all day
Flipping through
The diff'rent channels
I'm going back
To 'Addams Family'
Now I want
Some anime now
I have the time
To watch Dragon Ball Z
Whatver season
'Foster's Home For
Imaginary Friends'?
'Ed, Ed 'n' Eddy'
'Teen Titans'?
I'll watch 'em to the end
Of ev'ry show
Of ev'ry season
Will take time
Take up my holidays
And my weekend
I guess that I don't

I'll watch each show
And ev'ry show
From sappy shows like 'Home & Away'
To sitcoms like 'Home Improvement'
To the 'Fresh Prince'
And 'Scrubs' and do not forget 'South Park'
They killed Kenny? Oh, you bastard!

'King of Queens'
To 'Drawn Together'
From 'Just Shoot Me!'
To 'According To Jim'
From 'House' to
'American Dad'
'Oprah Winfrey'
To Aussie's 'Kath & Kim'

'The Young Ones'
All four 'Blackadder''s
Plus all 'Red Dwarf''s
All these on DVD
I don't care
What exact genre
All these shows are
As long as it's TV
God bless Wikipedia for helping me find all these shows! And Nova for introducing me to this song, which is just THE awesome. Oh, and 'anime' is pronounced 'a-ni-may'

Great job here, wish I could stand MCR.... Because this parody was really good, but since I am not Goth, nor Emo the OS isn't really me. This parody however was completely me!!!!

Same sentiment as Matthias. Nice word weaving. 555

Beautiful parody about TV. . .I should have saved this comment for when the AmIRight Ages starts, but I'll just save my in depth review for that point.

Cool one to read, DKTOS.

I did a parody of this song recently, so I know the pacing REALLY well. The rhyme scheme can be a bit tricky, and you missed it in some parts, especially the end. But the rest of the pacing was good and the content was good too.

(Ages Comp) This was the first time I was forced to hear MCR! I loved how you made very little of the original rhymes match with yours, that's very difficult for me to do. Pacing was OTM. The over-the-top pretension of the OS belies the mundane opinions of the parody singer, making this very funny for me! A very good start on the compeition, dude!

(AGES) As I said above, I'd save my full review for the Ages Contest. Being, well, not a fan of anything still on T.V. today, but familiar with all of it as I'm often lost with nothing else to do, I thought the lyrics were very interesting. I hate the OS to be honest. . .but only because I find it boring, but that said, your pacing was pretty good, a few spots where I got lost a little, but generally good. As a parodist, I'm begining to understand why you call yourself the conqueror, are all the songs you choose this difficult?

Yeah, but they're all 10 minutes of program and 20 of commercials, which is why I wrote MY parody :p- But this was well-written and probably not an easy one to tackle.----MM

(Ages) What does not kill me will make me stronger...and I am willing to undergo anything for the sake of parody...but PLEASE let me never hear that OS again! (I must say I absolutely loathe MCR)That being said, this was a very big effort with a great payoff. Nice job, Conqueror.

ABC - I'm going to have to murder you CONTINUOUSLY for making me listen to this song again.. I mean my friend having it on his phone was bad enough... But anyway, the song was well worth the listen.. .although I did puke up all my good organs... 5-5-5

(ABC3) This was one of my favorites in the Ages Comp, and will very likely place high in ABC as well.

(ABC3-W) Hate the OS, thought this was good but, not a riot. I'm not a big fan of lists. 545.

(ABC3W) Really good stuff here, bobpie...but a few more killer LOL lines would have pushed it over the top. Anyways, here's channel 555 to tune into...
Red Ant - May 08, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABCW-3) Is this what is popular on TV these days? Most of the show names went beyond me, pieman so did some of the humor. Anyway, good job none the less.

(ABC) LOL - here's yer Logie Awards, all wrapped up in one parody - (who was that Gold Logie winner anyway? I've never even heard of her) - big kudos for the effort alone bobpie, but some nice lines in there too - 555
Matthias - May 09, 2007 - Report this comment
After further examination, I found out that.... I actually can stand this song by MCR, although it's very emo, and equally very whiney it's perfect for parody.
Cat - May 09, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) See above!

(ABC) DKTOS, but it greatly reminds me of how TV Guide reminds us of how much crap is on TV. Good job!
