The Lyrics

The first few lines just sorta came to me the other day, and the rest came from that. Yeah.
I am illegal
Most Wanted am I
Never should have eaten
John McCain's apple pie
Sat on Bob Barker
Then stole his boots
I blew up New Delhi
And it was a hoot
Unplugged the AOL network
Stole someone's car
Couldn't run far
So I'm behind bars

I got out, duh
Almost got shot
But it sure was worth it
I got on 'Cops'
Back home I'll go
Might be far
Cops are chasing me now
Run fast, no car!
'Cause out back
There's a well-covered dugout thing
Now I roll in money
Ching ka-ching!

Ah, threw things at Obama
Then at Elton John
Stole a parasol
Then hit Bush with a baton
Stole things from Dixons
Oh no, be not so!
No! Seargeant Monroe! He's got an ego
So home's where I go
Must run, I have no Toyota
Into my dugout
I'm not alone-a

Oh no, my hole
Is full of piggies*, run!
What crime this time
Are they all pissed off from?
Nowhere to run to
I panic cuz I'm screwed!
"Your old cell
Is there waiting just for you"
Judge is so stupid
That old cell won't hold me long
The guards there are friendly
I'll be out before dawn!
*No offence to any policeman out there, but it rhymes with 'gypsies' and besides, why wouldn't a wanted criminal refer to the cops as the pigs? Kind of a crap excuse, I know, but that's all I could come up with.

Bob has to be one of the hardest songs by Weird Al to parody, because he did the whole thing as an anogram, but you did a pretty fine job with this turning into into a story (Which even Weird Al didn't do). The original song kinda drives me bonkers, basically because Bob Dylan drives me bonkers and this was a style parody of him.

This lended itself very well to your the story, and singing along with the song itself worked very well for me. I got a lot of laughs and enjoyed this quite a bit.

This is plain hilarious, awesome and a hard OS to do!!

Fun work on a difficult tune, TCOP. You certainly worked harder than I did on my Artistry entry. ;) Matty, the song was written in 'palindromes' (phrases spelling the same backwards and forwards), not 'anagrams' (which are words or phrases scrambled into new ones)

Thanks guys! BTW, i left out a very important word: the line "And it was a hoot" should be "And it was quite a hoot". Silly me to forget to put it in - it was one of the first lines I came up with!

(Artistry) 555 just for unplugging AOL. Fun idea well executed!

You parody makes much more sense than Al's, unfortunately you kinda missed the rhyme scheme--but that's ok because this rhyme scheme was near impossible to follow, so I'll cut you a break because this was pretty funny to one of Al's toughest song.

It was funny, but I feel like this song is lacking without Al's theme. I enjoyed the political slapstick and the use of some parts of the original.

ABC-QR

COP - For all this guy did, he should be the founder of "Al Shabaab" or should it be "Al Sharaab'? Don't sweat the ref to pigs as a negative. The character in the parody is the negative one. I picture this "Rob" guy as being part of something like Al Queda and the ref to pigs lends an entire new meaning to that part of the parody. Excellent job of writing. You out did Weird Al and that is going some. Forgive my ignorance but I don't see who this parody may be about. Is he fictional? No matter - it's still a great read.

ABC: Nice job! Never would have thought of this idea...not a huge fan of the OS but nice work!

Quite a rap sheet this guy has! Great job!

(ABC Q & R) Good (not excellent since pacing was a little off to me) and funny. This brings "rob", the politico flame-war spammer whom we ran off early this year, and a guy I knew named Rob Banks who actually robbed a bank, to mind. Both were scum IMHO. The OS is difficult (parodying a parody or a novelty song is hard enough, even more so if it's a Weird Al work), and you did well. 4-5-5.
