Parody Song Title:

"What A Terrible Loss It Would Be"

The Lyrics

It's your favorite quasi-veteran with your favorite up-and-comer doing the first duet for either fo us!
[INGEBORG:]

Don't care much for scatology;
we're much more than our biology!
Don't care much for explicit sex--
Get turned off by pornographic texts,

[BOTH:]

Still, we think censorship is wrong
If we told you not to write your song
What a terrible loss it would be!


[JARED:]

Don't know much about Tolkien's books
Or that Swedish I heard you took;
Sick of hearing 'bout Sesame--
No more kiddie shows, enough for me!

[BOTH:]

Still, we've all got to get along:
If we told you not to write your song,
What a terrible loss it would be!


[INGEBORG:]

Now I don't claim
to be a "5" author,
But I'm trying to be,

[JARED:]

So maybe by being
a "5" author, people,
I can win your votes for me.


[INGEBORG:]

Don't know much about hip-hop trends,
don't know much about Eminem--

[JARED:]

Don't know much about country tunes
Or the latest Japanese cartoons.

[BOTH]:

Still, we're glad the site is going strong;
If we told you not to write your song,
What a terrible loss it would be!

[INGEBORG and JARED alternate doo-wop lines, as BACKGROUND VOCALS recap the verse endings:]

Ladadada.......(Scatology)
Oh-whoa-whoa (Biology)
Ladada.....(Tolkien's books)
Whoa-oh-h...(Swedish took)

[INGEBORG and JARED sing together again:]

Still, we're glad the site is going strong;
If we told you not to write your song,
What a terrible loss it would be!

Wonderful parody. It describes me perfectly--except for the scatology and pornography parts.

Ingeborg & Jared - nice piece - although I don't see anything in there that I personally can identify with...

This parody was very clever. It got me thinking about what a terrible loss it would be if Amiright were to become extinct (Inthe00s already has, apparently). Does anybody know the current staus of Amiright and/or Inthe00s, let alone ChuckyG.com? I have had so many parody ideas and would hate for them to be cut short like this; Amiright hasn't been updated all week -- something's very odd about it all. But that's a different story. I gave your parody all 5's.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
