The Lyrics

A parrot tries to score but because of dirty lies and rumors spread about him isn't able to...
Hey birdie, You're a jungle babe
Polly wants you, Not a cracker
Hey birdie with the brightest shades
You think that I am a slacker?

I've got pretty feathers but you're treating me like slime
Made me pout since every parrot squawks
Every parrot squawks, Every parrot squawks

Worms do not make me whimper!
I never pecked my sister!
My talons don't have blisters!
Not scarred by some house cat
Not turned on by duck quacks!
Don't eat boogers for a light-snack!
Those parrots like to squawk smack!

Quit flapping through the Amazon
I have no stink bug collection!
Toucans like to follow their nose
Well, My schnoz points your direction!

My beak, beak nips
Every parrot squawks, Every parrot squawks
Every parrot squawks too much!

I'm not owned by some hipster!
Let's fly south in the winter!
You'll see I'm quite the whistler!
Never fought a Fruit Bat!
Let's dine on some red ants!
Then we'll soar to other tall plants!
Ignore that parrot's squawked crap!

Those macaws all tweet that I'm insane
And all those nasty birds will cost me dates!

Cute conure in that tree above
We can eat grub that's delicious
That conure digs African Greys!

They think that I'm a creeper
I've eaten from bird feeders
Learned to swear from a speaker
I've once clawed some small brat
And eaten a roadkill rat
A vulture taught me to do that
Still all those parrots squawk smack!

Every parrot squawks!
Pesky parrots squawk!

Petty parrots squawk!
Testy parrots squawk!

Trashy parrots squawk!
Filthy parrots squawk... smack!

I'm chasing down some lovebirds (every parrot squawks, every parrot squawks)
Get this chick in the covers (every parrot squawks, every parrot squawks)

Every parrot squawks!
Every parrot squawks... smack!

LOL! This was truly original, loved the line "learned to swear from a speaker". That bird should flip the others the... ehh... well... bird, so to speak.

Better lyrics than the original and really creative. This was a lot of fun to read.

Nice one, 555! A NY parrot, "I'm squawking here, I'm squawking here!"

My neighbor has a parrot that swears. Why do these annoying birds always pick up the bad words? Give me a cat anyday!

A fun parroty, er, PARODY. Your introductory comment is kind of unnecessary, I think works well as a general overview of the bird in question.

Maybe it's just me...but there seemed to be too much going on in this one. Midway through, I got lost about who the parody was about. I love the title sub though, I was expecting just a straight up "parrot hitting on/saying filthy things a customer at a pet shop" parody, so it could use some work IMO.

Not sure how you're confused its about a pareot trying to score a date but there are too many rumors spread about him so it scares her off and he's trying to defend himself.

New os by me, very well paced and rhymed. "Let's dine on some red ants!" heh heh

(ABC) I agree with Agri and Abbott that the topic got a little muddled at times, but otherwise this was pretty funny. 555 crackers!

(Artistry) I had a lot of fun with this one and I think the title switch was perfect. I somewhat agree with everybody in that I felt this could've used a little more fleshing out (or feathering out rather). The basic idea is simple enough for me to follow, but I think where we're all getting hung up is that we're not connecting with it. This is a character parody and we really didn't get much incite into the parrot and how he feels much at all. The one line, "made me pout since every parrot squawks," was the only time we actually heard about how this character feels (and FYI parrots don't have lips so they can't pout ;) ). I had fun with this, the pacing was perfect and the rhymes were great, but something like having people talk about you behind your back should be universally relatable and you never really dove into that. Overall very fun, but maybe just a little shallow, you could've gone deeper.
