The Lyrics

Now that I've written a self-attack parody, it's time for a self-tribute, based on an OS that I hate and am parodizing as revenge for the unknown 19th-century Englishman who wrote it and made it so popular in the UK that an otherwise good rock band had to record it and make a hit out of it.
I'm a parodist, yes I am
Andria the parodist, I am, I am
I've submitted 14 songs, I have
But not every one was a good one (Not all!)
I'm a great parodist, that I am
Andria the parodist, I am, I am

Second verse, not like the first!

I spoof songs, I do, I do
I'm no Weird Al, but I am close
And I'm no Allan Sherman (Not quite!)
AmIRight's my favorite site
I'm a parodist, and I'm quite good

A-N-D-R-I-A
Andria... Andria... Andria the parodist, I am, I am!

Yes, you are - this was cute; I liked it, but you are correct about the OS - why did they ever do it. Oh yeah, it was Herman.

Thanks, Timmy1000.

I'm having a little trouble singing to this sylible wise. It seems a little short too. Good idea though
Andria - January 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Ann. I didn't think that this parody seemed all that short, but then again, it was a spur-of-the-moment type of thing and was based off of a lyric sheet that I had printed back in 2003 and had spilled things on several times, making it hard to read.

Good idea, the pacing is off a little, and a little lacking in rhymes...I always dig up the original lyric and work from that...helps with rhyming and to elimate pacing errors..
Andria - January 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, AFW. If I ever do a parody of this OS again or another one that the lyrics have been shuffled about a lot during moves and reorganizations and thus wrinkled and/or have been exposed to liquids, I will certainly print out another lyric sheet. By the way, the OS was a little lacking in rhymes, too.

It's always good to write about your own experiences, keep writing, and it gets easier with time. "I'm no Weird Al", nor are any of us--which makes us that much more unique--good line

This is such a clever reversal from a self-attack parody to a self-tribute! That's more like it! But I still like that self-attack parody you wrote the last time. I even thought about writing a self-attack and self-tribute parody on myself someday. All hail Andria The Parodist!!! 555! ; - )
