The Lyrics

OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yIaelSVhyM
As I watch my song, I wonder
A-what went wrong with my score
A score that was so strong

And as I still watch on, I'm sinking
From all these one's I'm gettin'
From vile and heartless scum

I'm in shock and should complain
Stupid brawlers who have no screen names
The wicked dudes who smear with glee
To rend my revelry

And I'm plundered
My high-high-high fives plundered
By
The shy-shy-shy-shy guys having their way
And by chunder upchucked and sprayed
By little scum at play
The dumb-dumb-dumb-dumb scum at play

[The greatest instrumental break ever]

Guys who mock without a brain
Stupid crawlers, with no claim to fame
The sticklers, rude, who jeer at me
And leave me jittery

And my humor
My sly-sly-sly wry humor
Fried
By snide-snide-snide-snide gibes wrecking my day
And my humor gets ripped and flayed
By little scum at play
The dumb-dumb-dumb-dumb scum at play
The dumb-dumb-dumb-dumb scum at play

Let me be the first one to congratulate you for one heck of a satire...You didn't runaway and hide your feelings...You are one true and brave troll survivor, and have seen clean through their cloaks of one ability - those old sad creatures of despite :-( Maybe one day they'll go back underground and stay there :-)

The only rating that matters is a comment from another accomplished parody writer. This art form cannot be described or evaluated numerically. Any response will reflect the talents, song preferences, and perhaps the political and social views of the reviewer. I went back and looked at your lyrics again and I could hear Del Shannon's voice in my mind, singing them in perfect synchronicity. That is the mark of a great parody.
