The Lyrics

Part of my "Living The Fantasy" self-challenge. I'm not that good at sporty-type things, but not THIS bad...
My running's strained, my throw is lame
Can't jump, least not very high
I tripped and fell into the ref
I suck, dare you to deny
And you cannot say this is an off-day
It's standard for me to
Waste all my team's time, pre- and post-halftime
Our chances are so screwed

Because I suck at basketball
I never earn a point at all
You'd think I'd just keep the benches warm
But there's no-one to repla-a-ace me
We're screwed cause o-o-of me

There ain't a slight chance that I might
Turn 'round, and start dunkin' now
Can't dribble, derp, my aim's the worst
What now, I got another foul
Hear you askin' me, why not quit the team?
Yes, I know that I could
I've heard all my life, that I've got to try
One day I might get good

For now I suck at basketball
Can't get it through the net at all
Rebound off the board and smash my skull
I almost scored for the wro-o-ong team
I really suck at basketball
I fail when I try to slam dunk
Got no shoe grip so I hit the walls
No other guys to repla-a-ace me
We lose, should bla-a-ame me

Each time I try to bounce the ball
Damn thing always smacks me in the chin
Don't ask me to pass at all
The audience I'm sure to hit
So should I try some other sport?
It's a plan that I have dabbled in
There's only one sport I've skill in

If you haven't guessed, it's the one I've been
Whining about, it's true

I know I suck at basketball
I've tried my hand at other stuff
Worse at all of them, can't make that up
Even chess club rejecte-e-ed me
So I'm still playin' basketball
Tried pivoting, it made me fall
I can't even catch the ball at all
I'm shocked you guys still play wi-i-ith me
Thought you would ha-a-ate me
You tolera-a-ate me

Gotta listen to Miley Cyrus again for the next parody in the challenge. Balls.

(ABC)You're like Wayne Knight's sniveling character in Space Jam. There's always AV Club, I suppose.

I bet Miley would be too busy twerking the players to actually spend time trying to play the sport. This was a pretty good parody can I suck at all sports so I can totally relate.

Then there's the travel to North Korea.

Conqueror does a sports parody...I never thought I'd see the day! Pretty funny actually, well done.

I'm pretty okay with the OS, and your spoof matched up perfectly! Pacing was solid and there are a lot of lines that made me laugh out loud. Excellent work!

(ABC) Basketball is my favorite sport. I used to be really bad, but I worked extremely hard and now I'm a lot better. Not great, but I can hold my own on the court. So, I can completely relate to this. Good spoof, although the imagery of Miley Cyrus on a basketball court twerking on referees will haunt my dreams.

This is definitely one of the best parodies I have ever seen here. It is so funny yet motivating to a true hoops fan. The pace is also impressive although I don't really like singing to any of Miley Cyrus's songs. Nice one!!!
