The Lyrics

excuse me for not liking the rasmus...but when i heard that we could have voted for HIM to have a gig in hungary and the rasmus will come instead i went so damned angry that it caused this ...hhmmm...parody.
ooh ooh

no sleep
no sleep until i'm done with fighting this bastard
won't stop
won't stop before i pour him all over with mustard
i feel i'm going down as i see his face
somehow i know that he should be kept in a cage

i'll be watching
i'll be waiting
in the shadows
to cut his throat
i'll be searching
i'll be living
only for that
all my life

ooh ooh ooh ooh
in the shadows
ooh ooh ooh ooh
in the shadows

they say
that I must learn to kill before I can feel safe
so please
let me start practicing on you and your sad face

I feel like I should go and play with your lungs, man
I just dont want to let you live next morning

i'll be watching
i'll be waiting
in the shadows
to cut his throat
i'll be searching
i'll be living
only for that
all my life

i've been
patiently standing
waiting for something
but i've
had enough
you should
get lost VERY soon

i'll be watching
i'll be waiting
in the shadows
to cut his throat
i'll be searching
i'll be living
only for that
all my life

i'll be watching
i'll be waiting
i'll be searching
i'll be living
only for that

ooh ooh ooh ooh
in the shadows
ooh ooh ooh ooh
in the shadows

i'll be waiting
of course i didn't mean to cut the singer's throat, whatever his name may be...;)

I like the song a lot, but i think this parody is genuine. It's absolutely great. well done

Hehe! I like the song too, but I would be as pissed off as you if the Rasmus were replacing HIM. Reason: I love HIM, and Ville Valo is a god! Lauri-whatever-his-last-name-is is copying him, only he sticks chicken feathers in his hair. The song's good though. I stay sane by imagining how Ville would sing it. Ja ne! From Elróthiel, the Insane Elven Goddess of Hilariosity and Laughter! PS: NIRVANA, KURT, HIM, and VILLE ROCK!!!*Nirvana Emoticon* PPS: *wishes for a heartagram emoticon on Deviant Art*

thank you very much for reading my parody and sending me your comments. i am glad to hear that even those who like the rasmus did accept this stuff. anyway, thank you for letting me know his name. reading it again makes me feel that it's too brutal so maybe i'll write another version...because i think although i like those wicked him-guys i don't have to hate these another finnish jerks...i don't think we should compare them; both singing about 'oh-life-is-sad-i--love-you-let-me-die' and probably others adore lauri's appearence as him-fans ville's - and all these merry gentlemen are finnish...they must know something, huh? :) to cut it short, thank you again :) (and, to finish the story: it seems neither him nor the rasmus will come :D but värttinä who i also like... funny, huh? ;))

the parody made me giggle for sure. im a big fan of the rasmus, but i like him alot too, both bands have their own special qualities, but it put a smile on my face lol

How dare you!!!!!!? You might like HIM but you don't have to go slagging off every other band. The Rasmus rock and all those who say otherwise should be forced to listen to their songs until they love them. SO THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HIM might be good but The Rasmus beat them any day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way The Rasmus aren't jerks, and both HIM and The Rasmus are really good friends off the music scene!!!!!!!!1

i think The Rasmus rock. thats all that needs to be said. HIM r ok too but i don't listen to them that much. i think they give each other good influences because if sum1 hears The Rasmus they might think "cool finnish bands r quite good" and then hear that HIM r finnish too, so they chek them out , vice versa, and then both bands get the benifit. Ville and Lauri r both great mates anyway so all of their fans should get along too :D XXxxXXxx (R A S M U S R O K !)

Perdon? el que tiene algun problema con Lauri o con THE RASMUS que lo hable conmigo, ok? mi msn:

Although the song can be insulting as a Rasmus fan, I can just replace it with someone else I hate. Nice song right there... its similar to something I wrote to the person I hate, and you somewhat placed it in a song! Bravo!! Keep up the awesome job! but do keep in mind that other Rasmus fans or other fans of other bands might be insulted by your parody or parodies.Just a friendly FYI :)

I thought this parody was quite funny despite being a huge rasmus fan. I love HIM too though.. Lauri copying off Ville? Ahem.. I think not. They are both entirely different in my opinion. And its CROW feathers Lauri sticks in his hair.. not chicken.. lol.. And the to the person before.. You don't need to type in all caps.. thats just dumb. Net Etiquette or whatever you call it.. hmm. Good parody anyway..

hmmm... it sounds funny to me only cos my brother was singing sumthing similar today (but not as "violent") its clever... but i think its also SICK that sumone (author) can go THAT FAR in hating sumone they dont even know, that theyd write such violent S!#$ about them... u just too blind to see how GREAT The Rasmus are! Going on... The Rasmus KICK ASS>>> i havent heard OF "HIM" let alone heard them but i dont need to... when ive got THE RASMUS!!! and i cant understand how ANYONE could NOT like their songs... they are absolutely awesome musicians (Lauri in particular 4 writing the songs) Anyway, i just wna say that I LOVE THE RASMUS HEAPS! and Lauri especially... (his voice is SO SEXY)...
