The Lyrics

Certainly, not the first parody of this song, but if you believe in magic, it'll be the last!To add a touch of authenticity to it all, I did actually write the first verse at the office.
I can't remember why I chose - to write this parody,
It's really not like me, to goof off while at work,
Well, they've scanned my email now -
'Cause I could not delete it first..
And now it seems that I'm completely out of a job. And...

They've taken my company mid-size car,
And all of my corporate credit cards.
Oh me, oh my . . . and my pension plan.
Now life will suck when I'm an old man.
And I'll be lucky to push my shopping cart down the dirty streets,
If they don't come and take it away, oh my!

I thought I was alone - and so I laughed, I laughed,
When I had read a funny parody on "Am I - Right" . . . Right?!!
You know I laughed - You heard me laugh.
I laughed - You left, and got the CEO - and now he's had the very last laugh . . . 'Cause -

He's taking my personal golden key
To the Board of Directors' Lavatory - Me-Oh-My!
Now he's called the guard - Who won't escort me through the door,
Until he shakes me down for the 10 year pin I got in July.
I'd have just thrown the darned thing away, Ah-Ha!

I crunched your numbers down to size -
and this is what I get for working overtime,
and even Christmas Eve - Ha?!
Well, now the payback will be huge -
And did you know, that I have photos of our New Year's Party, Mr. Scrooge?! - So...

Just give me the office across from you,
With the solid oak desk and a penthouse view. Oh, what a view!
And my credit cards! A personalized space for my new Jaguar.
And I'll be happy to have you working for me, and pouring my tea.
This was more fun than playing Monopoly! A-Ha!

I'm the CEO - Now I can tell people where to go,
And I'll be happy to work them overtime on a Christmas Eve,
'Cause they're gonna be working for me, Ha-ha!

Stumbled on the pacing a little but still funny stuff.

What a concept! This wasn't even a real song, yet somehow you got the idea to parody it. Wow. What inspiration! Where do you get these ideas? I wish I'd thought of it.

Very cute song!!

Rick, If you'd read more of my comments, you'd know that I began writing this prior to you submitting your parody. What egocentric bone in your head makes you think I need you to give me good ideas? -Your friend, David
Rick D - November 17, 2003 - Report this comment
Dave, My egocentric bone ain't in my head. In case you thought my sarcasm was anything more than friendly kidding, I do read everything you post. But I've been beat to an idea about 10 times now. Mostly from Johnnie D, Guy and Phil. So I'm going to whine to the ethernet everytime someone follows on my heels. Especially you. (And in case you haven't noticed, "recent comments" on songs makes people look up songs that are not on the "today" list.) Don't get mad, get even.

I don't get even, Rick. I get bored.

Funny stuff! The pacing was off on the 1st and 2nd verse, but you put that effort into the 'chorus' instead! That's more than what I would have attempted. If you change the amiright reference and work on the weaker parts, I seriously think you should record it somehow for Dr. Demento!

I'm coming to give you some fives, ha-ha, I'm coming to give you some fives, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-ha, it's a funny song, whose subject's beautiful all the time, and I'll be happy to see these nice fun songs with the funny words, and I'm coming to give you some fives, ha-haaaaaaaa!

I would write you a fan letter, but they don't let us have sharp instruments here.
