The Lyrics

goon givers, denying the fives
that ought to have arrived, but hey
you see, their role’s
to be aholes
their senseless dreck blows
yet it won’t go away

stooge dimwits
lost in their own world
which sucks, their rotten world, yet we
must endure the chronic brain-dead
things non-aholes dread
votes from their empty heads
Goon givers, ghastly

goon givers, blight on amiright
their 1s pollute the site some days
you see, their role’s
to be aholes
these wretched pests blow
yet they won’t go away

stooge dips--ts
one-offs, that’s their world
which sucks, their thoughtless world, yet we
must endure moronic brain-dead
things non-aholes dread
votes from their senseless heads
goon givers gag me

Amen! I attract them like a lightning rod, but I only give 5s or abstain. Thanks for this! ;D

Always wanted to do something with this tune. Had a cousin whose pants wouldn't quite cover his predominant posterior. I don't pay attention to voting numbers, I like to read what people have to say about my writing.

Can't be said too often. (Was said here, at a bit more length:
http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/gilbertsullivan115.shtml

This isn't worth a pacing-point deduction, but when you changed stress in the first line, it's good to alert the readers with a hyphen or asterisk so they don't stumble on it:

WIDer than a mile
deNYing the Fives   is how it naturally reads; you want:

WIDer than a mile
DE-nying the Fives

Putting in the hyphen: "de-nying" tells us to separate out that syllable that normally would not be, and hence, to accent (stress) it. Can also use asterisks for single words:

"Moronic" line needs this in several places -- try it yourself. Still, fine effort for a new writer, and excellent message, so 555.

A more-than-occasional victim of these "givers," I salute you with 5s--often denied.
