The Lyrics

This is dedicated to the faceless coward who continuously tries to lower our ratings by voting ALL of our songs a 1,1,1. He even dug up the ancient ones and did them too. Thanks buddy. You're a real hero in your own mind. People like you make this site a worse place to be.
It's also dedicated to other accomplished authors that this happens to.
This is the story of a guy
Who votes our songs a 1,1,1 and why?
And while he hides behind his laptop screen
We absolutely hate him
WHAT AN ASS

How many days in a row
Do I wake up to check if our vote count did grow
And we can be jerks too ya know
We'd appreciate if your face you would show
As long as you sit there laughin'
Given us 1s for no reason at all
How many chuckles ya get
For making our vote count subtly fall

Your parodies prob'ly suck; you can't write
And you're jealous of authors at amiright
You need to get a life man and try TONIGHT!

This is the story of a guy
Who votes our songs a 1,1,1 and why?
And while he hides behind his laptop screen
We absolutely hate him
WHAT AN ASS

How many authors would stay
And just put up with this shit day after day
The process is pointlessly gay
Will it make him look better some way?

Well Mike and I will keep writin'
Turning the lyrics and writing bad puns
And you will just have to live
Because we don't, but you DO deserve to score 1s.

You're completely faceless and gutless too
And you won't even leave a comment, it's true!
You need to get a hobby; something to do

This is the story of a guy
Who votes our songs a 1,1,1 and why?
And while he hides behind his laptop screen
We absolutely hate him
WHAT AN ASS!

And your parodies prob'ly suck; you can't write
And you're jealous of authors at amiright
You need to get a life man and try TONIGHT!

This is the story of a guy
Who votes our songs a 1,1,1 and why?
And while he hides behind his laptop screen
We absolutely hate him

This is the story of a boy
Who hides his face and revels in joy
And while he hides behind his laptop screen
We absolutely hate him
What an Ass!
WHAT AN ASS!!!

They aren't cuss words, they're "sentence enhancers." I guess when normal words don't express your feelings exactly (or they aren't part of your vocabulary) cuss words are the way mot people go.
Greg - February 08, 2003 - Report this comment
Very funny Mike - I don't really understand why anyone would do such a juvenile deed, but I guess it makes them happy. Maybe my 5,5,5 will counteract some of that 1,1,1

Ummmm... My vocabulary is pretty extensive. I could have rambled on using words that most people don't even recognize... but instead I was true to my own feelings when I first discovered this was happening, and it's rather censored for the site by the way. I cut MOST of the bad ones out.

This same guy, or maybe just a bitter Knicks fan, just nailed me with his 1-1-1 for "Lady Meadowland." Wonder if it's the old CBS censor who tried to stop the Stones from singing "Let's Spend the Night Together" on Ed Sullivan, or the Doors from "Girl we couldn't get much higher" on that show, or Pete Seeger from "Waist deep in the big muddy and the big fool says to push on" on the Smothers Brothers' show? Nah, can't be, somebody like that would never get on a site as hip as Amiright, and would cower in terror if he met a rapier-sharp wit like Mike Armstrong for real. Mike Myers as Dr. Evil was wrong: There IS something more pathetic than an aging hipster, and that's an aging guy who was never hip in the first place. That's you, Mr. 1-1-1. Roll THAT in your joint and smoke it!

How come Tom Ridge doesn't have a color coded warning system for the 1,1,1 loser? You know, rated from "The fives will rain down" to "Maybe you should wait until next week to post a parody".

yeah, i love the song. Its good. It seems to me that when people cut out the harsh swearing they tend to search for better words and it ends up explaining their feelings better. But frankly, Mike did that pretty dang well. He didnt swear THAT much, for the most part jsut the same repeated phrase. It doesnt lower my opinion of his parody.....i read it, didnt i? Great job, mike. Keep 'em coming.

I notice that 26 people have already attacked this parody with straight ones. How could they do such a thing? Well, I suppose they'd do it if they don't LIKE the parody, but why would they put 1 for pacing, when most of us agree that it certainly meets the pacing more or less? I've been wondering about that for a mighty long time.

Yes, perhaps an interesting idea for Chucky would be to have a system where you cant vote a certain percent lower than the total score. C'mon, 20 votes of 5-5-5 and then a 1-1-1 is obviously unrealistic. Dunno if this idea is possible, but you never know.
Guy - November 11, 2003 - Report this comment
Something like this could be done by computing the votes by not counting the lowest vote and the highest vote for one vote each. The votes would stay marked but they would not be averaged unless the song only got one or two votes. This way the one's guy would be giving someone a vote for total but not affecting any averages.

Stick it in your ear one's guy.

You're RIGHT, I have been acting like a bastard, and I feel terrible about it now. I had no idea how stupidly I was behaving. I guess I was just jealous of all you talented writers who use your gift to spread laughter to others. Me, I guess I don't have a life. I just sit alone night after night in this seedy apartment, with no furniture, and only the glow of the computer screen to keep me warm. But that's no excuse. I promise to mend my ways, and change all those 1's to 5's, 'cause you guys deserve them. - Okay so this isn't really from the 1's guy . . . but don't we all feel a little better now?
Mari D - December 05, 2003 - Report this comment
Why do you all think that the 1s guy is just one guy? Maybe it's several guys, or one bipolar guy who on alternate days gives all 5s.
Gary Main - December 05, 2003 - Report this comment
is the pacing attack that put me onto that loser to begin with. dont like a word i said? fine. hate it overall fine. but if the words fit the tune, why give it 1s, its pretty darn hard to make sense out of some of these tunes originally, and then to make it say something totally different, and still use the same musical score, well hey, GOOD LUCK. I have gotten pretty arrogant at times, largely because i dont know ANYONE personally that can top me or my brothers at this cool game. On this national scale with basically only similar types in here, i am only another pair of shoes. and then this All 1s guy comes along, and with almost no regard, pisses on the thing. I have a solution.. Subtract a full vote and a 1 from every category. every song judged. then the all 1 guy if he is a writer only hurts his own work. if not then either way he is hurting the ones he does like.

There's probably a lot of ones guys. I mean, look at all the ones this parody received in comparison to the other numbers. The ones kinda "semi-dominate", if you will. There are probably so many that we can't track 'em all down. I give this parody all fives. :)

Mike - DKTOS and I honestly would have passed on this one anyway because it isn't as clever as it could have been had you nixed the "WHAT AN ASS" lines and found a more subtle way of putting it. I'm not a prude but sometimes I'm kind of a prick about this. My personal position is that cuss words lose their power and become trite and kind of boring and juvenile when used too often in a repetitious way, even if you use all CAPS!! I do like the idea of answering the "1-derer" with a parody but I think the best way to reply to him is to display your sharpest, clearest, and best thought-out writing to highlight and contrast the difference between a person who can think and express themselves well and then proudly put their name next to the finished product and a slinking, mean-spirited cretin who creeps out of the shadows and gets some sort of moronic pleasure annoying people who have worked hard to create something others can enjoy. Well, just my opinion...my soapbox is creaking and groaning under the weight of my complaint so it's time to get off and move on. Thanks for your time...

Great parody Mike, 5's all round from me. I just stumbled onto amiright and so i haven't had the opertunity to have a really good look at it. The thing that i noticed right away though was that lots of people are willing to take the time to post really constructive thoughtfull commments about other peoples work. A rating is just a number, and for all the hard work that you guys who write this stuff put in, you deserve better feedback than that. Fortunately, its obvious by the number of people who have given you 5's that your hard work is truely appreciated. You've got some funny stuff out there Mike, well done and keep it up. I'm off to go read some more!

Your honor, everything that guy just said is bull-$*&? and his one's actually stand for 5's. He just keeps filling in the complete left side of the voting sheet and can't seem to stop himself/itself. I consider that if a song gets a visit from this person, that song is probably pretty damn good to inspire such hatred. So I take it as a complement. I've avoided commenting on this before, being a sworn enemy of anything that gets this many votes. But not until recently did I get to see the Mike behind the voting phenomenon. G/J is what I'm trying to say :cD

I see your comment and I search for your name and see most of your parodies are rated 4.##, nearly to 5. I'm so glad someone experienced like you gave a comment to a newbie like me. (yeah, I'm still a newbie, even though I'v e wrote 35 parodies. But it's just only 2 months and half when I first started.) Yup! I know there's some persons rate us 1 1 1 continuosly. For some of mine, it's ok. Some of my parodies are sux, especially from my very first one. But there's some parodies I like that they rated 1 1 1, and they don't leave any comment. If we're really bad, why don't they guide us to a better writing structure? My averages are still 2, close to 3. I know I'm not very good. And I accept 2 2 2. But 1 1 1 is really unimaginable. It means like: 1 = Sux!! Hate it. S/he can't write any parody. 2 = Plain, boring. 3 = Pretty cool. 4 = Wow! I like it so much. 5 = Completely perfect!! So, 1 1 1is really unacceptable except if the parody is really bad.
