The Lyrics

Wrote this not long after being bitten by the karaoke bug. The crowd eats it up wherever I go. :)
I've included a few tips at the bottom for those who'd like to do this at their local karaoke spot. (Just be sure to give me proper credit, as I'll always do whenever I use a song from this site.)
Let's warble!
Come on!

I'm going out tonight, it's karaoke night
Gonna sing a song or two
Gonna make some noise, really strain my voice
Yeah, I wanna scream at you

No inhibition, tone-deaf condition
I forget every other line
I get no respect, each tune's a train wreck
I can't even keep correct time

The best thing about singing karaoke
Is the prerogative to mangle every song yeah

Oh oh oh, The Real Slim Shady, Dude Looks Like A Lady
Dixie Chicks, Stevie Nicks
Oh oh oh, Born To Be Wild and I'd Walk 500 Miles
Oh oh oh, Ride The Lightning, Kung Fu Fighting
Mack The Knife, 18 And Life
Oh oh oh, I wanna be free, yeah, to sing like Jerry Lee
Man! I love karaoke!

I don't need a break, tonight I'm gonna take
My chance to make annoying sounds
I don't know how to dance, and never mind romance
The girls think I'm a big fat clown

The best thing about singing karaoke
Is the prerogative to butcher every song yeah

Oh oh oh, Green-Eyed Lady, You're Having My Baby
Linkin Park, Marky Mark
Oh oh oh, I Walk The Line and Baby One More Time
Oh oh oh, New Edition, Pansy Division
Under My Wheels, Strawberry Fields
Oh oh oh, I wanna be free, yeah, to sing like Geddy Lee
Man! I love karaoke!

The best thing about singing karaoke
Is the prerogative to sing Here Comes The Sun or Fun Fun Fun

Oh oh oh, Barenaked Ladies, even the Bradys
American Pie, Earache My Eye
Oh oh oh, Dark Side Of The Moon and Tuesday Afternoon
Oh oh oh, The Wallflowers, Dirty Power
Frankie Laine, Shania Twain!
Oh oh oh, I wanna be free, yeah, to sing like Master P or Tenacious D
Man! I love karaoke!

Oh yeah
She Drives Me Crazy
Nothing more than feelings
Karma karma karma chameleon
Woo! Hee hee!
I love karaoke!
Tips for singing this song at karaoke:
1. Before you even start, point out that you're about to do a parody song (especially if you're a guy, or you'll get plenty of funny looks when the actual song title comes up )
2. Sing the line "tone-deaf condition" in a different key and/or in a monotone.
3. Keep incorrect time on the line "I can't even keep correct time" (I just slow it down a bit, but not too much or you'll run into the next line)
4. Sing the line "I'd Walk 500 Miles" in the appropriate Proclaimers accent (Scottish, right?).
5. Add a little emphasis on the "Shania Twain!" line (just to give her props).
6. Go falsetto on the line "She Drives Me Crazy" (a la Fine Young Cannibals)
7. The "Woo! Hee hee!" at the end is sung in the style of Michael Jackson (Don't forget the crotch-grab!)
8. Don't be afraid to screw it up a bit. That's sort of the point, isn't it? And if you can't sing to save your life, hey, that'll make it even funnier!
9. Personally, I've found that the key of the music track is not quite in my comfort zone. When I've tried going up an octave, my voice tends to crack on the choruses, which makes it funnier, sure, but is damned rough on my voice! But if I go lower, the verses become almost inaudible, especially if the sound system sucks. After a few times I tried a compromise: I went high on the verses and low on the choruses. In some cases, if you ask the person running the show, they can slightly adjust the pitch for you. But if you have to pick one or the other, it's funnier to go higher (which just gives more meaning to the line "really strain my voice").
10. Have fun, good luck, and let me know how you do!

Hey, great parody of my song! I liked this one! However, it's from the 90s; it was released in 1997. But you did a fine job.
Amy Lee - April 30, 2004 - Report this comment

Gee, I think I drifted off to sleep after the first few words. Do you actually SING that? Holy crap. If only I had TWO bricks, I could smash BOTH sides of my head rather than listen. But alas, I'll have to stick with being a "left brain" kinda guy.

I'm not "anyone with good taste," apparently, because I thought this was really funny. I doubt I'll be following the instructions any time soon, but great job on the lyrics. Karaoke to "Earache My Eye" - heh heh.
