The Lyrics

1400TH PARODY, Y'ALL! And as is my tradition, I have taken a song I parodied back when I was stupid and inexperienced and re-parody along a vaguely similar topic. Last time I engaged in some teenage angst, based off my real-life dumbness. This time, I shed light on a different kind of teenage dumbness: emojis!
What's this?

These are my expressions
When I don't wanna text whole words all day
There's a tab to slide out to choose a little face
These are my expressions
Got emojis on the go, but it's true
I'm not particularly enthused with my expressions
Most of them generic little yellow-tinted balls (balls)
Not "surprised", I'm just intrigued, that's all
Kinda blows, what emoji to choose?
So I don't really use all my expressions

Now this is not the biggest problem I could ever have, it's true
But ev'ryone else's texts contain these Pac-Man-esque dudes
Want to show I'm glad, so should I go with the cheeky wink, cheeky wink?
Seems a bit too flirty, so I'm leavin' it
There's none there for "man, you're kinda rude"
Nor one for "ambivalence", I'm of two minds 'bout that, it's true
How often would I pick the more complex of emotions?
But I like when effort's put in to give me and others more options

These are my expressions (oh-oh)
Ev'ryone else's texts love to display (oh-oh-oh)
These small yellow guys (yeah, yeah) and bein' left out is lame
These are my expressions (these are my expressions)
I got so many emojis, it's true (now)
But they don't really reflect the truth (not the whole truth) of my expressions (oh-oh)
Don't want (oh-oh) to delay replies, but I want my response (my response want)
To not lie in any way, that's wrong
I don't know what emoji to choose (I don't know, I don't know)
Still I'm compelled to use (ow, ow) all my expressions (ooh-ah-ah)

I know it's really stupid to be whinin' 'bout
Somethin' that's optional, but it's how I am, no doubt
But you know what would please me?
Find a way to ban assholes who spam that damn eggplant over and over again, cause they're pricks
Yes, it looks like a dick, very funny, mate
But ev'rybody worked that out in just a couple days
Now I've complained, of course you're gonna send some poop at me (ah)
I know you think you're funny, not really

Those are not expressions
Don't care (oh-oh-oh) how you try to explain it, mate
The main point that I'm havin' such trouble to make (it's all a lie, oh I)
Those are not expressions
Called "emoji" (just how), thus "emote" (just how), how can you (how can you, uh)
Call a small smilin' dollop of poo a damn expression (not know it's stupid shite)?
Maybe there's a subtle point I've missed here, after all (all)
I don't like (right) textin' when I could call (well, I confess)
I suppose those emojis have use (gotta have some real use)
Still should not be confused (ow, ow) with real expressions (you should get that part right, buddy)

Well, this by far is the lamest thing that I've complained about to you
But it's true, this selection's dumb
And they're makin' a movie 'bout these dumb things for some reason no-one knows
Since ev'ryone accepts the fact that it will be crap, I'm hopin' it
Will hopefully kill all the clout these things have
They'll get right off of Twitter, right out of my life
Cause this sucks, geez

These are my expressions
Could spend my afternoon pickin' a face
A waste of my time? I can't argue with that, mate
These are my expressions
Dumb emojis, they're all so damn vague, dude
So tricky for a guy like me to pick one expression
All of my emotions are too vague it sum 'em all (all)
In one shiny, smug-ass yellow ball
Never know what emoji to choose
So I'll never find use for these expressions

Fun fact: my phone doesn't use emojis. I got it back in 2012 and I ain't replacin' it 'til it's legit broken. Less fun fact: I don't know why I keep linking my original parody in description for these milestone things, they're embarrassing. Almost embarrassing as my refusal to allow comments back in those days. Or the fact that I got the original song title wrong.
