The Lyrics

An AmIRight Exclusive!: The first ever "tribute" to the triple-one voters!
{intro}

[1s guy]:

Well, I'll one ya if ya grammer aint two gudd (yeah!)
I'll one you if you're singin' 'bout your wood (yep!)
I'll one you if your words are real dumb (dee dee dee!)
And I'll one you if you talk from your bum (brrippp!)
You will find that 3's your total sum (ching!)
When I vote ya 1 - 1 - 1! (whooo!)

[Another 1s guy]:

Well, I'll one you when I cannot keep the beat (yeah!)
I'll one you if you will not be discreet (too bad!)
I'll one you when you write about crack and whores (yes he will!)
I'll one you.... until your ass is sore (ouch!)
So look out now 'cause here it comes (wheee!)
Givin' you tha 1 - 1 - 1! (squeal like a pig!)

[1s girl]:

I'll one you when you stress the wrong syl-LAB-les (F!)
I'll one you when a song's mislabled (like this 'one'?!)*
I'll one you if you say you like to *bleep* (hmmph!)
I'll one you when your rhyming really sucks (yes, she will!)
And if I hear a bunch of lame ass puns
Then I'll click ya won - won - won! (blah!)

{solo}

[1s couple]:

Well, we'll one you if you're joking 'bout the dead (ass!)
For good measure we will one you once again (Elvis lives!)
We'll one you if you're taking things too far (like what?)
Like singin' of crap, piss, puke, puss, and farts (whew!)
But mostly we do it 'cause it's fun (ah!)

[All one-voters]

EVERYBODY MUST GET ONES! (yeah!)

[Ones baby]:

NO FIVES! (gaga!)

{solo}

[Me]:

Well, it doesn't matter when you vote me low (sure doesn't)
'cause what's sad is that you still live at home (oooh burn!)
Your unobombs are anything but brave (weak)
Anonymice will never show their face (eek!)
So, I guess your tribute's fin'lly done (what do I say?)
SLAP ME WITH THA 1 - 1 - 1! (yay!)

{outro}

I wouldn't give the satisfaction for anything offensive. I just quit mid sentence - or verse - and move on.

I agree with cat, that Boby Dylan song's hard to parody, yet you pulled it of so easily! No reasons to give you ones! (Unless I just did what this song says everyone should do!)555

Thanks Ann, TJC, Cat, 2Eagle, Rex, Ingeborg, Mr 1s, The Charnstar, Alex, Pat, and Joel.

Ann: IMO, a vote of 111, without a comment indicating fatal flaws in a parody, is not an opinion.

TJC: "Anonymice" was my favorite too.

Cat: Yes, I did. I couldn't d/l lyrics to the song (phone lines were down), so I sang my parody incessantly over TOS (like 20+ times) to get it to work. Oddly enough, the parenthetical lyrics and fifth verse took more time than the rest.

2Eagle: I admit to giving 3 111 votes in all my time here. I'd give you the URLs, but all 3 were deleted due to being blatant plagiaries, which, in all honesty, aren't worthy of even a unobomb.

Rex: I wish I could claim origin of that term, but I read it in a comment long since forgotten.

Ingeborg: Wow, my first comment from you, and in mini-parody form no less. I loved your version to the Beach Boys' "Fun, Fun, Fun."

Charnstar: Give it time, heh heh.

Joel: Actually, the song just suggests some possible reasons that parodists get 1s. It doesn't encourage people to give them.

Pat: Of course I was asking for it! See, this parody was my final test for becoming a FBI profiler. I had to try and draw my subject out. Once I figure out the 1s voters, I have a cushy government job waiting. There is inconclusive data here though, so it might wind up an X-file. ;-)

Dear Red Ant, How is it that you manage to get so many votes and comments when I have seen parodies written by others (mostly 'new' authors') that are almost as good or equal to yours, yet they receive almost no comments or votes. Perhaps this explains the increase in triple-one votes by authors who feel its unfair that they hardly get any votes or feedback yet they know their parodies are up to a high standard. My real name is not Anonymous, i just didn't want to reveal it. And yes I have done some triple-one votes myself out of frustration about hardly getting any votes or feedback.

Dear Anonymous,

If you are referring specifically to the comments/votes here, my guess is that The Original Song (TOS) is well-known, and the topic is relateable to all authors on the site. In general though, I spend a lot of time commenting on others' works, which IMO is the best way to get recognition. I'm also quite active on the inthe00s.com messageboard and the various contests, which provide a chance to increase exposure.

As for why newer authors may not get many votes/comments, there has been some recent discussion about this on the messageboard. See replies #45 and #46:

Everybody must NOT get ones. That is unethical. (I assure you that the triple one vote was not from me. I am just sick of 'em altogether, hence my name.)

I understand. I was just saying that it's not required to get 1s, as implied by the parody title. It just seems that these anonymous voters seem to have nothing better to do. I already voted 5s on this a while back, btw.
Matthias - March 19, 2009 - Report this comment
This a pretty great parody! Even better since the computer I'm using at the moment doesn't have headphones and it's in the public library so I can't play music without bugging everybody. So I'm reading it without having to listen to Bob Dylan's horrible drunk sounding vocals.

(Artistry) The thing that really kicked this parody over the top was the intentional misuse of examples that fit each line. I loved the *bleep*/suck coupling (it rhymes if you replace *bleep* with your intentions, and doesn't rhyme if you read it directly, which goes with the line it's on) Love the grammar line, and the syllable line, Very cool parody.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
