"The Battle of The New Amiright"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

In two-thousand three there was a little fight
About the type of parodies that post on Amiright
The writers and the authors were invited to Britain
To read the kind of parodies they'll never post again

They hired hackneys and they all came down from Sussex
They all came down from Middlesex to see our little show
The double-decker buses came a'rollin' down from Essex
A trainload full of tourists came from Wessex for the show

Malcolm took the podium and watched the curtain rise
He read his parodies while wiping teardrops from his eyes
He knew the literary stuff he read upon that night
Would never ever post again on Chucky's Amiright

They hired hackneys and they all came down from Sussex
They all came down from Middlesex to see our little show
The double-decker buses came a'rollin' down from Essex
A trainload full of tourists came from Wessex for the show

Meriadoc and Pippin were the next to take the stage
You couldn't tell their gender and you couldn't tell their age
They soon had everybody laughing so much that they cried
Their tears were shed in part for all the lyrics they must hide

They hired hackneys and they all came down from Sussex
They all came down from Middlesex to see our little show
The double-decker buses came a'rollin' down from Essex
A trainload full of tourists came from Wessex for the show

Johnny D then took the stage and brought along with him
His family-friendly parodies although the list was thin
The audience applauded as he read 'em with a smile
They all were Disney-licious, you could read 'em to a child

They hired hackneys and they all came down from Sussex
They all came down from Middlesex to see our little show
The double-decker buses came a'rollin' down from Essex
A trainload full of tourists came from Wessex for the show

Rick Duncan - Guy DiRito - Billy Tong and MooRocca too
Claude Prez - Phil Alexander - every other author too
One by one they took the stage and read their songs aloud
To a grateful British audience applauding long and loud

They hired hackneys and they all came down from Sussex
They all came down from Middlesex to see our little show
The double-decker buses came a'rollin' down from Essex
A trainload full of tourists came from Wessex for the show

Encores and curtain calls kept drawing out the show
'Til the authors packed their suitcases and headed for Heathrow
They went back to their home computer parody machines
And they all know that on Amiright - they'd better keep it clean!

They hired hackneys and they all came down from Sussex
They all came down from Middlesex to see our little show
The double-decker buses came a'rollin' down from Essex
A trainload full of tourists came from Wessex for the show

Gee, this looked a bit oversexed. (Sussex, Middlesex, Essex, etc). It's a wonder it got on with all that sex in there.

You're a mess, Johnny
Claude Prez - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Very clever. And "Disney-licious".
Adagio - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
LOL! 5's
Johnny D - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you Guy, Royce, Claude, and Adagio !

You're right, Guy - what better place to sex things up than the land of Monty Python? Or is that Monty's Python ?

And Royce - So I'm a "mess", am I ? I hope that's a jocular witticism and not a binocular criticism ! ;-D LOL !!
Royce Miller - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Johnny, it's one of those jocular Texas slang things, I think-that's the place I'm from; it's a term of admiration, to be sure
Johnny D - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Well in that case, Royce - thank you, very much !
Melhi - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Tastefully done, clever and I too liked "Disney-liciious."

Thank you, Spaff.

What better place to sex things up than in England? Right, because, as we all know, the English are known for being skilled in the ways of passion. Much more than, say, the French or the Italians. If it helps, New Jersey has counties named Middlesex, Essex and Sussex! Although, in my case, perhaps I more resemble Mon-mouth!

Spaff, you would be doing me a great favor if you would go ahead and post a comment here explaining exactly what you mean by "pretty gay", and why you voted 1-1-1. You yourself have written a lot of high-quality stuff, so I value your criticism. Thank you.

Yet another AmIRight parody that didn't include me. I give you a 1/1/1 :-P. Note: I didn't actually.
Rick D - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
We don't read song parodies, we play 'em. In keeping with my expressed feelings about the "in-crowd" works, I can't vote for you Johnnie, but good job anyway.
Johnny D - December 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks, Rick. I do have a very small number of what you call "in-crowd" works...and the only reason I write them is that it's fun to do.

If they become prohibited someday because of the kind of objections that you and others conscientiously express, I won't miss them one bit - they're just silly fun as far as I'm concerned.

If Chucky G decides they are no longer appropriate for whatever reason, I will be among the first to request that he remove my "in-crowd" parodies from Amiright. 'Nuff said.

I liked it, SOMEONE had to do it!! BTW, if I haven't posted in a few days, its not for lack of trying, I too have been censored by the Chastity Act of '03. Oh well. Guess I'll go open a pint of Ben & Jerry's and watch the Fox & the Hound.

Thanks Leah! Remember to vote, my friend... ;-D

Johnny, I feel pretty safe in saying that "gay" comment wasn't by the real Spaff.
Diva - December 10, 2003 - Report this comment
I think it's clear that, Spaff is being spammed. Some one used my name to make a comment, also. > This is what I meant, for all newbies to take notes! < It Happens!. It dosen't hurt to check latest comments, now and then, to see if someone is maring your idenity. I think it is particulaly cruel to post lousy parodies, using this fine author' s name. =(

Hey, Johnny--I think I found a hole in the security fence. Have you seen Malcolm's latest? d;:^)

For the record, this is my first vote (555) and first comment on this parody. I don't vote 111's. And I don't use "pretty gay" except as two adjectives describing a former girlfriend who is now both. Anyhoo, good job, and I look forward to your parody about the sextuplets - if it gets through.
Johnny D - December 10, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you Claude, Diva, Bob, and Spaff !

Spaff, I am SO glad that it wasn't really you who posted the "pretty gay" comment and voted a won-cubed. However, my comment about how I value your criticism still stands nonetheless.....anytime you have a constructive word to say, please go ahead - I will be listening. Thank you!

Oops, sorry, neminem, I forgot to thank you too - so thank you, too, neminem !

So, Johnny, are you a Saxon? Er, sexton? er... oh, never mind. I laughed my head off at this!

Thanks, Meriadoc ! (Well, I'm 50% Welsh...)
