Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Sings like he's just fourteen
And he makes the tweentards scream
He arouses Simon's i-yah
I must vote for that boy Sanjaya

I've been shunned 'cause I'm voting for Sanjaya
They look down, down, down since I joined that choi-yah
When I vote, vote, vote for that Sanjaya
I'm a pariah

I fell into the mad world of Sanjaya's
With my brain, brain, brain pulled out by his pli-yahs
And the signs, signs, signs call him "papaya"
That boy Sanjaya

The stage where Idols meet
It bows in its defeat
Watch while that mild-mannered child
Drives...everybody wild

I can't wait for the next song from Sanjaya
He could sing, sing, sing "They Call the Wind Mariah"
With his hair, hair, hair a pointy spi-yah
That boy Sanjaya

Watch that boy set the Idol stage on fi-yah
If he wins, wins, wins, Simon might reti-yah
So I'll vote, vote, vote for that Sanjaya
Vote for Sanjaya

So I'll vote, vote, vote, for that Sanjaya
Vote for Sanjaya
Vote for Sanjaya
Vote for Sanjaya

Still not sure whether to root against Sanjaya (he really is that bad) or for him (to expose "The Dreck Called American Idol" -- not my parody but a classic). I'm also trying to imagine what Simon Cowell would say to Johnny Cash. "You sound like you've been riding a mule for the last 14 hours. Absolutely horrible." And Johnny would have shot him, and not just to watch him die. And no jury would convict. (Especially there in L.A.)
