The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2014 self-challenge. Nothin' but net...despite expecting absolutely nothing.
I don't see a reason
For me to try to shoot all the-ese hoo-oops
I'm bad at it, right
I don't know why you dragged me here, sure wish I could disappear
You'll make me feel like a clo-o-own no-o-ow
I-I'm not gonna-a throw
Your damn basketballs, I know that I'm crap
I'll do the one, alri-ight, bu-uddy-y-y
There's no point in loo-ookin', no
Either way, I know that I'll miss so damn bad
I'll bruise my own damn eye-eye, bu-uddy-y

To sto-op your talkin', I made o-one damn throw
I don't wa-ant your nonsense that I sco-ored, pure load
You-ou can't talk me into tha-at thought, no
Must be ly-yin', aren't you? Can't have ma-ade that throw

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (nailed it)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (swish)

You must be insane, there's no way that shot was one I made
You're a liar now, mate, nought you could possibly say
To convince me about how I made the best shot, ain't so
Don't show me some clip you saved upon your iPhone
Can't be so because that would be lame
Sayin' "don't be dumb", I'm no fan of japes, bro
Fine, I'll have a look so that you'll shut your face
Whatever will let me go now, there's no damn way
It's the kinda thing that only a hack writer
Would scribble down after seven pints of alcoholic cider
To place the importance of sports higher
Or some other weird kind of nonsense bollocks
Please, I have no need to fi-ind out
If I made that shot, cause I don't give a crap now, bud
Don't give a toss 'bout my fluke, leave me out
Of all the accolades that you guys are yellin' loud

You ma-ay be shocked that I just ma-ade that throw
I'm afrai-aid I'm out of shits to gi-ive, you know
Wai-ait, you want me to repea-eat that throw?
Sure, whate-ever, wait, made it agai-ain? Oh no

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (nailed it)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (swish)

Don't belie-ieve it, all my shots, I fear, all seem to be a slam
Don't belie-ie-ieve it, I'm not tryin' here, but you can't tell so, man
Don't belie-ieve it, somethin's happ'nin' here, I might be goin' ma-a-ad, barmy
Keep seein' balls fall through the net
Don't belie-ieve it, hoo-ooh-ooh-ooh-oh-bo-o
Don't belie-ie-ie-ieve i-it, oh-oh-oh, no, no-o-o, no-oo-oo-o-o-o, no-o-o-whoa

You gu-uys keep runnin' around, to-o and fro (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Doesn't see-eem you're pullin' a trick o-on me, no (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (nailed it, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, swish)
No-ow I'm wond'rin' how I mi-issed my throws (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Throughout a-all my life, did I not wa-atch them go (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)?
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (nailed it, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Clearly this guy really sucks at basketball and was expecting some sort of rigged target at the end there. What I'm saying here is I'm reaching 1300 parodies on Tuesday so I can easily come up with previous parodies with similar material.
