The Lyrics

Nutshell comments: 1. Sanjaya was a top 12 finalist on season 6 of "American Idol" 2. Cory Lidle was the Yankees pitcher who died when he crashed a plane into a Manhattan apartment building, tragically ending him and his teacher's life 3. Underwood refers to season 5 winner Carrie Underwood. 4. Diff. is short for difference. 5. Sanjaya's only like, 18, I think. Song number 10, the magic number I need to get on the list! Please Chuck!
Hey there Sanjaya
Don't you think you sound shi***y
Can't believe the crap I'm hearing
Sure as hell isn't pretty
No it don't
Sucks like a broken CD or a boat
That doesn't float

Hey there Sanjaya
The songs spell suicidal
I'd think you'd rather work somewhere
Then get on a plane with Cory Lidle
He had died
Your voice needs to change or hide
America cried
Oh why do you sing to me
Oh why do you sing to me
Oh why do you sing to me
Oh why do you sing to me
Just why do you sing to me?

Hey there Sanjay
Just doing my damn part
To make sure another loser
Doesn't lose face or heart
You had it good
I hope to hell your life is good
Take lessons from Underwood

Hey there Sanjaya
Got nothing left to say
I hope you hear this song sometime
Cause it probably sounds gay
You sang it all
Your sister sounded better in a fall
Send her a call

Oh why do you sing to me
Oh why do you sing to me
Oh why do you sing to me
Oh why do you sing to me?

A decade mouldn't make a diff.
Or Simon fell off a cliff
Paula and Randy wouldn't have any other way
Your friends didn't make fun of you
They laughed because they knew
They knew you wouldn't last the entire show
Sanjaya I will promise you
To get you a sitcom or two
But it won't be the same
You are to blame

Hey there Sanjaya
Don't be sad and don't be mad
Only five ended up in front of you
I made history just like you
I hope you know it's due to you
Do karaoke have a brew
Wait until you're 21
Or else it's dumb

Oh why'd you sing to me
Why did you sing to me
Oh why'd you sing to me
Why did you sing to me
Why did you sing to me?

Er, why are we still writing parodies about Sanjaya? That's old news.

Only because this song started irritating me a lot. Again, so do Sanjaya. -Andrew.
