The Lyrics

(Variation on a theme by Katy Perry; Stargate (Tor Erik Hermansen & Mikkel Storleer Eriksen), Sandy Vee, Esther Dean)
Have you ever been called a big wind bag?
Or a filthy ho, are you on the rag?
Or, maybe someone said "You're an ugly hag."
"Damn you friggin' beatch, you're a real drag."

Do children ever see you and have to yak?
Ever mistaken for a donkey at the race-track?
Ever ask the mirror, "Who is that scag?"
Then, with a spoon, gag

Oz helped the scarecrow, tin man and the lion's whine
It's too bad your brain withered on the vine

Hey lady, you're a piece-a-work
They all say you're a friggin' jerk
You make 'em blow blow blow
Blow chunks when they look at you - ew - ew

Buddy, you're a piece-a-work
Like an angry postal clerk
Made 'em go, o-m-g
After pullin' out your uzi

You don't have to feel like you're out of place
At least you know you're not a waste of space
For ugly sticks, kids rub 'em on your face
Are you a nut case or a basket case?

I still remember when you were just so-so
But over all the years amassed stupid by the kilo
Until you were the dumbo maestro
The bozo so-and-so

Specialists examined if you're schizo or psycho
The doctors concluded you're just loco

You really are a piece-a-work
They all say you're a friggin' jerk
You make 'em blow blow blow
Blow chunks when they look at you - ew - ew

You're a friggin' piece-a-work
Like an angry postal clerk
Made 'em go, o-m-g
After pullin' out your uzi

What a maroon
Even dumber than a goon, goon, goon
And all you ever do is nag nag nag
You really are the worst scum bag

You mutha-fugin' piece-a-work
They all say you're a friggin' jerk
You make 'em blow blow blow
Blow chunks when they look at you - ew - ew

Dammit! You're a piece-a-work
Like an angry postal clerk
Made 'em go, o-m-g
After pullin' out your uzi

Out of tune
Even dumber than a goon, goon, goon
Out of tune
Even dumber than a goon, goon, goon

Are you a newbie? Maybe on this site, but clearly you have some talent. Awesome friggin parody of a great Katy Perry song. "Ever mistaken for a donkey at the race-track? " got me good, the first stanza was just awesome. Your pacing is pretty good, one recommendation I have is maybe putting dashes or other notation to show how to pronounce things in oddly pronounced stanzas, that would make it easier to follow when artists do their weird stutter steps etc, If you need an example using your parody, please ask, I just don't want to overstep my bounds being that I don't know you, but if this is somewhat of a starting point for you--you are starting really high on the ladder--this was very well written, rhymed and paced. Oh and loved the alternative word choices for "bad" words like beatch and motha-fugin. . .brilliant
