The Lyrics

I really should take this CD out of the car.. but this song is a bit of a joy to parody. For anyone looking in who didn't catch my first to this tune, the OS is here
Voting 1s, Voting 1s
Voting 1-1-1s
Disparaging vote av'raging is what I've just done
And although you feel annoyed, I
Get a glow of schadenfreude, voting
1s! 1s! 1s! 1s! 1s!

I’m a veritable narcissistic egomaniac
Just when you are feeling happy, that's when I like to attack
So you're thinking that the feedback to your song is pretty fine?
But I can't abide another tune with better votes than mine

Voting 1s, Voting 1s
Voting 1-1-1s
I'm extolling all my trolling and I'm voting a ton
And I guess that's part and parcel
From an antisocial arsehole
Voting 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s!!


I hang around the parody song page all day and night
Waiting for the latest update going live on amiright
I don't care about the quality, no I don't care a jot,
I tell you: talent and appreciation.. things I have not got

Voting 1s, Voting 1s
Voting 1-1-1s
I'm a gutless, witless git, yes, but it's what I call fun
I have no need for explaining
As on your parade I'm raining
Voting 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s!!


For others and their feelings I don't really give a damn
I leave nasty, spiteful comments without saying who I am
I use multiple sockpuppets, I post pseudonymously
So that nobody could ever, ever guess that it was me

Voting 1s, Voting 1s
Voting 1-1-1s
Impolitic - parasitic - I'm the type you should shun
One of life's disgusting creatures
I have no redeeming features
Voting 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s!!


The fact I ramp my own votes I thought nobody would guess
But my cookie-clearing habit shows from my IP address
Only most people can't see that, it's straightforward to deny
And when somebody confronts me with it: simples! I just lie

Voting 1s, Voting 1s
Voting 1-1-1s
I'm a vicious, meretricious, unmitigated ****
Voting, voting, voting, voting, voting,
Voting, voting, voting, voting
1s, 1s, 1s, 1s, 1s!!

Bitter inside stuff, but technically good. Think bigger. No vote, of course.
Phil Alexander - September 08, 2014 - Report this comment
It wasn't written in a spirit of bitterness, more the enjoyment of playing with these sorts of words. Listen to the OS & you'll see why: it's a really fun bit of music that puts a smile on your face. Well, mine, anyway :-)

Think bigger? I do, most of the time.

I see what you did there. 555

This is so awesome. You're one of the main reasons I can't quite bring myself to stop coming here. So much more humor in just this one song than in some people's entire massive catalog.

There's nothing wrong with writing about things from the site when it's people from the site who are going to read this parody. I'm glad you wrote this because you introduced me to some really awesome music. Thanks Phil!

We should ask Chucky to write a script that transforms all 111 votes to 555s, or one that just cleans them out regularly, like maybe once a day - that way Chucky will still get the page visits statistics from The One Guy's OCDs bastardious behaviour but it won't stay a permanent defilement on our separate song pages.

I never look at the numbers, nor do I submit them. I read the comments or add my own. Never could get interested in numbers that did not have dollar signs in front of them.
