"One Year Early"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song is about a sports player who retired and his team wins the whole thing a year later, I know certain players who have done so but I won't be naming names *cough*Tiki*cough*
One year early
One year early
One year early

I tried to laugh, and then I want to pout
I've got something I can cry about
I feel sick, in a messed up way
My team won and for this I will pay

One year early
One year early
One year early

They celebrate, the light is staring down
Burns my soul as I grow a frown

One year early
One year early
One year early

Then I cried inside my private home
I'm upset and it hurts my dome
They felt good, but I'm not feeling fine
Pity that I've left at a wrong time

One year early
One year early
One year early
One year early
One year early
One year early
One year early
One year early
I have a feeling Tiki Barber will 1 bomb this.

Perhaps you should learn to stop 'pissing people off' if you don't like getting 1 votes

Who'd he piss off on this? There may be some parodies out there that deserve uno-bombing, but this isn't one of them.

Are you Tiki Barber by any chance?

Me thinks you should find something better to do than repeatingly1-bombing parodies by cleaning out the cookies.

(SOTM) Tiki Barber is not the issue here for low votes...without your editorial comment, this parody has no meaning to anyone, other than perhaps some emo-esque person.

(S.O.T.M.) Don't know who Tiki is but was interesting.

This wasn't bad the only thing that made this a sports parody was the word "team" other than that it was pretty much an emo parody (Not even an emo parody, more like emo lyrics to a Beatles song), but I actually understood this one (Unlike a lot of your work) so I'll give you some points for this one.

(SOTM) I get it, but it just seems repetitive. One of my parodies brought up the issue of repeating lines/verses or trying to change them. This just seems a bit too repetitive to me.

SOTM - Short and (bitter)sweet.

(SOTM) Good pacing and rhyming, Max. It looks like you were trying to go two different ways at once (the intro comment and chorus go one way, the verses a completely different direction), resulting in a parody that didn't really go anywhere. This could have been a good sports or emo parody; (un?)intentionally mixing the two just didn't work for me. Maybe if Tiki sang the verses and everyone chanted the choruses at him in a mocking fashion it would work. If that's what you were going for it came up a bit short. It doesn't deserve the one votes, but I couldn't give it fives. Sorry, Max.

Why would I care if I had their assets. I'd just roll anyway I pleased. It must have something to do with a them having the "Basset-ball Jones". Interesting.

(SOTM) There's a reason the voting system has a 'funny' category, ya know. Even with the explanation at the top, there is not a hint of funny here. This isn't coming from a sports fan or anything (I don't like sport), but as a parodist. Better luck next time.

Is that a Tiki-ly cough you have in the intro? Not one of your best, though definitely not worth a score of 1s - ignore what the first comment says, though: you can't write stuff worrying whether it's going to piss people off - if you do get hammered like that, grin and enjoy the fact that you've obviously hit home with somebody :-)

Short but sweet. A good idea

(SOTM) Not much I can say here, nothing really particular to correct--it got it's point across, though I don't know that this is particularly among your biggest efforts. What's with the one bombers here, you aren't even that politically motivated in most of your work. . .I'll never understand how you manage to draw such a large number of ones--the good thing is ones means you got to somebody, so at least you made a statement.
