The Lyrics

Some people don't have a lot to be proud of, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be proud about what they have done! Original Song
A dance-off last May
I took home thirteenth place
It was an off day, mmm-hmmm
I us’lly take eighth! Mmm-hmmm

Girl, I think that we should date
You’ll see that I am great!
Because in the second grade, mmm-mmm
I could spell “bouquet”, mmm-mmm

Babe, I’m no loser
On my Vespa, cruising
I fin’lly solved this Rubix
Cube, all right...
Working on it since I was nine!

Now, your friends are gonna say, say, say, say, say
That you’d better run away, way, way, way, way
But you’ll see that I am great, great, great, great, great
I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
Some cookies I will bake, bake, bake, bake, bake
And I’ll end up burning eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
But the last four sure are great, great, great, great, great
I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off

Even Time Magazine
Wanted to honor me
Man of the Year, go see! Mmm-mmm
In ‘06, believe! Mmm-mmm

Another skill I own (‘Nother skill I own)
Could you hand me that can of Coke? (You’ll like this! Don’t go!)
I’ll burp ‘til I reach ‘O’, mmm-hmmm
[burping] K-L-M-N-O! Burrr-urrrppp

Oh, this ones classic...
Watched the film Jurassic
Park, and only panicked
Eighteen times
Last time, it was like twenty-nine!

So your friends think that I’m lame, lame, lame, lame, lame
But you know the Pac-Man game (in the ar-cade?)
My initials in sixth place, place, place, place, place
I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
Went swimming in a lake, lake, lake, lake, lake
And some seaweed touched my leg, leg, leg, leg, leg
And I didn’t even freak, freak, freak, freak, freak
I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off

Showin’ off, showin’ off
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off

Hey, hey, hey
Just think, could have been going out with guys that are handsome
and have money, fancy cars in the world...
You’d rather been sitting here, listn’ing to me!

Let me guess, you’re a Gosling fan?
Yeah, but can Ryan make an okay milkshake?
Channing Tatum over there has a back with no hair
Yeah, well I will look just like him once I shave, shave, shave...

Yeah ohhh

Sure, I’ve never had a date, date, date, date, date
But you’ll see that I am great, great, great, great, great (see why I’m so great!)
I can almost lift a ten pound weight
I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
But my greatest thing to date, date, date, date, date (mmmm)
Wrote three hundred parodies in a decade! (No way! No way! No way!)
So when should I pick you up for our first date?
I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off

Showin’ off, showin’ off
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
I, I, I’ve done it all, I’ve done it all
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off

Showin’ off, showin’ off
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off
I, I, I’m what you want, I’m what you want
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off

Showin’ off, showin’ off
I, I, I’m showin’ off, I’m showin’ off (I love you!)
I, I, I know you love, you’re so in love!
H, H, Hey don’t run off! Please don’t run off!
NOTE: The only thing in the song that relates to me is the "300 parodies in a decade" line (wrote my first one in 2004, just passed 300 this year). Also, in 2006, the Time Magazine Person of the Year was "Everybody"...so you can put it on your resume too! Another T-Swift spoof down!

I've heard about your dance moves, no way you'd finish lower than 8th.

(ABC) I was expecting another T-Swizzle satire like "Must Be You", but instead I got the greatest self-deprecation romp I've ever read. Fantastic work here, 555 more not-brags!

At first I thought you were going for another nerd description catalog, but the silliness deepened as it progressed. Clever burping bridge! Changing my vote now.

I'm sorry that I missed this one! It was absolutely hilarious!
