The Lyrics

I rate a lot more songs than I get ratings in return and this was written around a fragment that popped in my head as I was checking for ratings on one of mine, the other day. It's not really a shameless ploy to get more ratings (unless it works.)
Spoofed a song, thought it was fine
Sent it in, fishin' for fives
Hoped for a vote or two
Maybe some comments, too

It's a sure bet, I can't get
Any ratings on the song I sent
And I'm begging, please realize
I'd be happy, ones or fives.

Please someone rate me
Once
Please someone rate me
la la la votes
I tried real hard
and I checked my ratings but I had none
and comments, no way

Checked again in about an hour
after that, I got sour
Was it good, was it bad
I paced it well
But funny I don't know

It's a sure bet I can't get
Any ratings on the song I sent
And I'm begging, please realize
I'd be happy, ones or fives

Please someone rate me
Once
Please someone rate me
la la la votes
I tried real hard
And I checked my ratings but I had none
And comments, no way

This parody, as you see
May not get me more than a three
Now it's over, and I'm glad
'Cause I don't mean a thing I've said ;)

Please someone rate me
Once
Please someone rate me
la la la votes
I tried real hard
And I checked my ratings but I had none
And comments, no way


la la la la la la la la la la
vote
la la la la la la la la la la
vote
....and I checked my ratings, but I had none
Hope someone rates me!

This reminded me of an old joke. The masochist says "Hurt me" and the sadist says "I won't" (that Dave comment) Generally, I prefer parodies that are not about the site or the people on it. I enjoy the "fellowship"and clever banter, but we should be using the site as a forum for the art, not the inspiration for it. I find it disconcerting that some of the highest rated works are the "In crowd" ones. I think you and many of the others are so gifted at this organized heckling that we do here, that we don't need to write so much about each other. I see from your other work that you do have other funny ideas. I notice the plea here got you 15 decent votes and one nasty comment. So since you did ask for rantings here, I thought I'd give you some.

Rick, when I submitted this, I was very, very new, here, myself. It was written for publication on this site, not for any other market, so it is site-specific, but it has nothing to do with any "in crowd" and I assumed it would be accessible to anyone who read it, simply because anyone who reads it can also rate it and comment on it, on the very same page, without having even to sign up for a username and password. This one may have 15 votes, now, but it didn't start out with nearly that many. I think it started out with 6 or 8. Votes have been trickling in for it over the last 6 months. Rest assured, this is not, nor has it ever been one of my most vote-getting or highest rated parodies.

PS to Rick, I was dead exhausted and half asleep, earlier and thought, but forgot to actually type: "Thanks for letting me know that it might be read that way by someone." It belongs immediately after the first sentence. Hey and thanks for checking out my submissions, I really appreciate it and I'm glad you enjoyed some of them. :)

I do enjoy your stuff. i just used this one to grumble about something I see a lot of. I'm perusing people here in turn, doing a little poking, and see what reaction I get. I really wish I'd done that before I piled in 200 parodies in a month. Now they just sit there, and I realised too late that the repartee was a big part of the fun. Are you a M or an F? Mari and I have a bet.

Rick, don't worry, they'll pick up more votes over time... and, heck, I didn't mind your comment, one bit. Sorry if it sounded like I did. I did want to let you know that it wasn't quite the ratings grabber it appeared to be, because I can see where that could be discouraging. If you look at my enhanced info, you'll see that this one did crack the top ten, back then, but even that is misleading because it just happened that there were fewer submissions and a lot less voting going on, at the time. If I had submitted it, today and got exactly the same initial votes, it wouldn't get anywhere near the top tens. Oh and I'm a female. Which of you won?
Rick D - November 09, 2003 - Report this comment
I did. Mari said the only person that she knew that had your name was a guy. I thought I noticed a more feminine touch from your stuff. I write often from a female perspective, always have. I look at songwriting the way a dramatist does, you have to write as a character. Reminds me of the old gay joke. If you're not picky about the gender, you double your chances of a date on Saturday night.

In case you were curious about the other Mehli (a conductor in L.A. and the reason that I thought that you were a guy... no offense) here's a web site dedicated to him -- http://www.aysymphony.org/MehliMehta/
Melhi - November 10, 2003 - Report this comment
My nick was made up from the first syllables of my first name and the last name I had at the time. I chose it from a long list of possible nicks. I've heard of Mehli Mehta, but that's about it. I only wish I had a fraction of the talent he's reputed to have. Thanks for the URL, Mari, that's the first picture of him I've seen. Someone once told me there's a Melhi in the begats of the Old Testament (I took his word for it.) I, too, prefer to write from a character's POV. I've never let gender limit or decide what I'd do or what my tastes would be, etc. But, probably because I have known more men, I do find I'm more likely to picture a male when my POV is gender-neutral. No offense taken, Mari. It doesn't phase me if someone guesses my gender wrong any more than if someone guessed my eye color or height wrong. :) (Sorry again if I came across wrong, yesterday, I was overworked and severely underslept.)

In honor of your week (in case you didn't hear yet) and because I managed to listen to some new stuff on the radio, top marks. And in the spirit, your the first one I've reviewed to parody Pud-Mudd so you might enjoy my Pud-Mudd parody. However, you probably won't read this any time soon, so good job anyway.
Melhi - December 01, 2003 - Report this comment
2nz... *my* week?!? No, I haven't heard about it, yet, but you've sure got me curious. I'll definitely check out your Puddle of Mudd parody and rate it if I haven't already! Thanks!

I really love the tact and class displayed by the first comment for this song. Nothing makes you feel better than getting told that something sucks, only to get at least 10 5's in each area.
AussieBullDog - December 02, 2003 - Report this comment
Nice job, Melhi. (So this is how you get 17 votes for one parody. *g*)
Melhi - December 02, 2003 - Report this comment
AussieBullDog, yep. Some like this do pick up a lot of votes right off the bat and some don't. This one didn't get that many all at once, but has picked up a vote here and a vote there, over time and it's added up.

2nz: When that first comment appeared, only one new vote had been cast since the last time I'd checked for new ratings and it was straight 5s, so I think the comment was meant as a joke. As I recall, he left a really nice one on another of mine around that time.

*RATED* As a newie myself, may I tempt you with my a parody I did a few days ago on a similar topic? http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/eminem151.shtml That celery is still looking good.

Most welcome, even more so as you realised my name isn't Jake. I crown thee the first one to do so! {
