The Lyrics

There is a guy named William Hung
He came way back from Hong Kong in China
And though he cannot sing for stinkin' beans
The people seem to like it
I'm confused

How many times must I see
Performances by this untalented freak
And though I must not sound too nice
I'd rather dive into a pool of rice
As long as he keeps on singing
I'll plug my ears and drink 20 beers
Even though I am underage
I really can't stand this new music rage

I wonder how things had turned out this way
Listening to this guy sing day after day
While millions of great bands try to be heard today
Lucky dog

This guy signed a record contract
Though good singing he definitely lacked
And while the people buy his bad albums
They're just wasting their money
He'll be RICH

How many times will I hear
His horrible singing year after year
I just hope that it ends real soon
Or else I'll drown myself in a lagoon
He's going to get me puking
Singing in his own freaky little way
The judges laughed him in the face
People accepted him when he sang "She Bangs"

His popularity sure surprised me
And any normal guy would have to agree
He is worse than anyone I've ever seen

This is the story of a guy
Who was sensational
I don't know why
And while he has elephants in his throat
The people all enjoy it
What the heck

The public sure has a weird interest
I really wish people would give me a rest
There's gotta be some kind of good singing test

This is the story of man
And his singing really should be all banned
And while I surely could sing much better
I'm not in the singing biz
What's the deal

He is making a lot of dough
For reasons I simply never will know
And while he is on stage singing old songs
I'll never really get it
Bad singer

There is a guy named William Hung
He came alll the whole way here from China
And while he used to be an engineer
He took a really huge change
Really strange

Good choice of song for Hung. The original was about as annoying as he is.

Yeah, I hate that song. It was stuck in my head, and I felt the need to parody it.

I'm glad you do, M-Dawg! I was afraid I would be accused of "hating". I discussed this with Mari Duncan on the News topic of William Hung, and all I heard (well, not really heard) was blah, blah, blah...

YWN, I think that as a writer you have a lot of potential (DKTOS, can't vote). I am also not offended by your last remark, since I would not expect someone of your age to understand what I was talking about. Keep up the good work!

Dang. That's the thing about the Internet, in places like this. You talk about someone behind their back and they see you even though it was a day later. :-)
Anyway, thanks, and I STILL just don't get William Hung... He can't sing. I only listen to people who can sing...

WIlliam is the victim of foul play...I think I may be wrong.....but it's obvious he's completely sans talent.....nevertheless, the industry and the public still insist......methinks there might be foulness and darkness behind the scenes.....the film "Trading Places" comes to mind, which was also about cruel trickery on human beings, as some of you may recall...
Your Worst Nightmare - April 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Exactly why I wouldn't want Trading Places in my house; I've SEEN with my own eyes the cruelty they bring upon those innocent homeowners... Anyway, I'm off to look up "sans".

Ah, without. Stick around CK, you're healthy for my vocabulary.

That parody rocked my socks! I don't get why Willy Hung got a recording contract, especially since he can't sing to save his life.
Your Worst Nightmare - May 03, 2004 - Report this comment
Hey thanks! I was thinking of what you said on a literal scale, like, if terrorists had kidnapped him or something and said they would only let him live if he could sing tolerably... "Ok, I mean, I HAVE a record contract!... SHE BANGS! SHE BANGS!" BANG! "He's dead, he's dead!"
