The Lyrics

This is my first parody, so please forgive me if it doesn't live up to your expectations - but I had a try, so here it is.
Cruel, cruel as a giant,
You shoot your former client,
He had some quite juicy life savings!

Just hack into the bank,
Give thinks a little crank,
A prank,
It's a gangster's world out there!

Killing like a bear,
With bodies everywhere now,
Going down,
Grave Construction!
Pry and pry,
That's what I try,
But sometimes people have to die,
They lie,
Gangster's Nation

The car,
It looks like a Jaguar,
As sleek as a huge panther,
But really it's a million dollar Porsche,

Rigging all the polls,
The Americans they don't know,
How did Bush get into office,

A mole,
Under our control,
Sits there, no-one knows now,
Going down,
Digging the dirt up,

Pry and pry,
That's what I try,
But sometimes people have to die,
They lie,
Gangster's Nation

No!
The mole has been found out,
He's talking like a trout,
Oh I'm now in doubt

A mole,
No longer in control,
He's gone and told them all,
Going down,
Run Away!

Pry and pry,
That's what I try,
But sometimes people have to die,
They lie,
Gangster's Nation!

A good first try... start with your pacing though.... Good pacing is the first key to writing a good parody...

I agree, for a first effort, pretty good, and with better pacing, will be better

Thanks for the comments, guys - I couldn't have hoped for a friendlier reception to the site! :) As for what I'm doing next, I've just submitted parodies of 'Lucky' by Britney Spears, and 'Beautiful Day', another song by U2. Check them out if you feel like it!
