The Lyrics

I think I got nailed by the wonderful "1" guy the other day. My first time. Actually, I'm quite honored, judging by the others he's "1"-graced, I'm in the company of some very big-hearted, funny and talented people. Hey, "1-"derman (or "1"-derwoman), thanks for your vote on my "Morons and Lilian" parody. If it made you feel alright that's cool, we all gotta try to get there some way or another and I didn't see any trail of dead bodies lying around in the aftermath. As I briefly noted yesterday right after I first saw it, if you were trying to hurt my feeling you're just way too late and not even in the top 100 of those I can remember. Maybe somebody already gave you your full life-time ration of 1's and it's just about that. Anyway, we're all curious and just 1-dering who you are and if there is some particular reason behind this. Well, whatever. Take care. See ya' around, Solitary Man.
Well, you know me as the guy who visits "amiright"
When parodies are good I like to score 'em lite
I read 'em then I "1" 'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I try to bug the authors; I don't ever leave my name
They call me the 1-derer, yeah, the 1-derer
I bring your average down, on down, on down, on down
Well I'll click "1"s for Leah's tune and then one TJ writes
I'll slam them on Claude's stuff; you could be next tonight
And when somebody asks why I pass out 1's with zest
I'll share this with you now; it's because I'm just a pest
'Cause I'm the 1-derer, yeah, the 1-derer
I bring your average down, on down, on down, on down
Oh, well, I roam from song to song
If you worked hard, well, I don't care
I'm always happy to bring you down
With my "2" IQ and lots of "1"s to spare
Well, yes I am the guy who likes to pass out "1"s
I give 'em every place; I go from song to song
And when I find a tune that seems to be real good
I jump all over it and score it lower than I should
Yeah, I'm the 1-derer, yeah, the 1-derer
I bring your average down, on down, on down, on down
Oh, yes, I'm the kinda guy who likes to bring you down
I leave "1"s everyplace; I go from song to song
And when I find myself a song that's written well
I'll trash it with all "1"s and make the ratings go to hell
Yeah, 'cause I'm the 1-derer, yeah, the 1-derer
The only fun I get is bringing others down
'Cause I'm the 1-derer, yeah, the 1-derer
Don't know the "1"s I give will someday come back 'round

1 derful.

Phil, Thanks. I've always thought it better to take small slights in stride and turn them into something positive, have a little fun with them if possible. If the "1" guy needs to do this for some reason, well, that's a hit I can certainly handle.

:C) Excellent. Site-enspired, but excellent.

2nz - thanks.

This was really a fabulous parody. It really flowed naturally with the song. 5's
Paul Robinson - December 12, 2003 - Report this comment
Adagio, Thanks. And interestingly enough I owe it to the "1" guy.
Adagio - December 12, 2003 - Report this comment
Wouldn't the "1" guy just be fit to be tied to know that he was responsible for more votes for you? lol

All ones -- times five! I guess "The Voteman" is still too much of a coward to identify himself.

It must be a weird power trip thing...
Paul Robinson - December 12, 2003 - Report this comment
Adagio, That was the idea of the forward. I don't know if he will see this or not but if he does he won't have to "1-der" who it's about. But I have no axe to grind. He can "1" me if he wants to. But I might write him another tribute. It's only how it looks to me. Michael P - have you been "1-dled" five times? Leah, yeah, I've tried to turn in my amateur psychiatrist badge, but still occasionally 1-der about what motivates people to do things. Fortunately after a brief moment I am usually distracted by some bizarre thing I think I need to do. You know, if you could really figure out everybody you'd probably have to find a way off the planet.

When you get one-smacked, it means you did something right ;-)

This reminds me of the band in "That Thing You Do," the OneDers. They changed their name to The Wonders because everyone called them The O-need-ers. I still think that there's more than ONE "one's guy"... that or a few copycats.
Guy - December 12, 2003 - Report this comment
It's no 1-der he persists. I would too if I were getting songs written about me and I was on some sick power trip like this guy. He's gotten me more times than I could count and has a totally negative impact on lowering my average. Bite it one's guy.
Bob Gomez - December 13, 2003 - Report this comment
Nice job here, Paul. Rice Cube is right on-- three one's usually means you really got under someone's skin with your satire, or they disagree with your politics. Either way, it's a badge of honor for a parodist who knows the quality of his or her own work and doesn't do this for the votes anyway. d;:^)
David Chrenko - December 13, 2003 - Report this comment
Interestingly, no "1" votes - maybe he found one he actually liked.
Paul Robinson - December 13, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks to all for your votes and all your "1"-derful remarks. I noticed shortly after I started on this site, which was around Nov. 10th, I think, that there were comments from people whose numbers were brought under due to "1"-der plunder. I mused (fooled ya there) as to whether I might be blessed enough to receive his special "1"-ness. Guy, I could be wrong but I think he LIKES when we worry about him but I'm not sure he cares to be made sport of. Could be wrong. Hey, I like a nice average as much as anyone, but if I really want to put something up I'll do it as long as I think it's good, especially if it is something I want to say. But if he wants to play with me that's ok, I know how to play a lot of stuff and I'm reasonably adaptable. I won't get nasty, the only weapons I can use are the songs I know and whatever verbal agility I can round up. I'll take my chances against whatever finger he uses to click his mouse button.

We all dislike the One's guy. We have all, had bad experiances. Great Parody. =)
Linus Pierce - December 14, 2003 - Report this comment
Great work. I think I got hit by the 1 guy too on a parody about getting hit on by a gay guy in the locker room at the gym. I wish I knew who the 1 guy was (assuming it is a guy) so I could introduce them to each other.
Guy - December 14, 2003 - Report this comment
Are you saying the 's1 guy is gay? That would be a new twist calling him the 1's gay, or the 1's gay guy. He does act a bit gay now, doesn't he?
Paul Robinson - December 14, 2003 - Report this comment
Gee, Guy, we're going into a gray area. So Guy, you say he may be that way, gay? Hey, I gonna have to weigh that. Oy Vey! Nay, I think I'll leave it lay and go away. Will not speculate on it today. But, anyway, pests exist in all genders & preference types as far as I know, regardless. I think everyone can connect behind that label.

Saw yer comment on FOR WHAT YOU"RE WORTH, my song about mr 1 from FEB 27 , so I had to check this out. This is very good and someday I hope to write well enough to get 1'ed myself. You get 555 here , well deserved.

Good job Paul. 5 stars. I have just added a new Shania Twain parody to the Shania Twain section that I think you would enjoy. There is even a link to a sample of the original song. Any comments or votes would be graciously appreciated.
Paul Robinson - February 29, 2004 - Report this comment
PABLUMS, mac, Chris. Thanks for the votes and comments. Chris, don't know any Shania songs at all. I've heard a little of a few I think. When I get my sound working on my new PC I'll check the link out. Not sure what I haven't set up right. Just got the thing a day or so ago.

Haha...I echo your sentiments, Paul. I just got 1'ed for the very first time (wow, that sounds like "Like A Virgin"...maybe I could develop that into a parody about being an amateur in a field of vets) and this parody makes me feel better.

Well, Cat - I'm only, what Four months late in replying to your 01/03/06 comment here. Well...thanks & LOL...in looking at your comment it brought to mind once again how fast your writing has developed here recently.

You should have seen how angry I got when I got Mr 1-ed for the very first time (it was on my Hole In My Bucket parody). Shame that whoever this 1s person is, is far too much of a cowardly prick to reveal themselves. Great parody by the way Paul.
