The Lyrics

Hello Chucky G, found your site today
And it looks like fun -- can a novice play?
What are your standards, Chucky? What's your stance?
For I want to know if there's any chance you'd take a hack writer --
I'm a hack writer...

All my parodies are just like useless dongs
'Cause they're limp and lifeless, but really long
I've got one headed for the paper bin,
I'd appreciate it if you'd fit it in - to please this hack writer,
Please this hack writer...

I'm a hack... wri... ter...

It's a thousand words, give or take a few,
I would guess you'd rate it a '2-1-2'
Cause the pacing's sloppy and it's humorless,
I don't think your readers would be too impressed -- I'm just a hack writer
Just a hack writer...

If by chance they like my stuff on AmIRight,
I could write a dozen for you overnight
But if you insist the writing must be good
Rest assured your meaning will be understood: you don't like hack writers
Don't like hack writers...

Don't like hack... wri... ters...

I'm a hack writer... I'm a hack writer...
I'm a hack writer... I'm a hack writer...
This would have been MUCH funnier, but I was trying to sound sort of like a hack. ;-)

Pretty good, Leo...=) Although, calling yourself a hack...even in jest...would be like me pretending I'm not 100% foxy! Come on! ; ) 5s...

This hack writer is a little offended!

Arwen's so foxy she should be elected President Vixen. Oh yeah, great parody, Leo, 5's.

Arwen: This parody isn't about ME -- it's written in the voice of one of my many, many alternate personas... and you're not just "100% foxy", you're FOX-AAY!

Ash: If you're a hack, I'm wack.

Johnny D: you're so naughty, you could be Arwen's VICE President.

If your a hack, does that hack-ness carry over to all of your alter egos? Found this one very enjoyable, I did.

Leo Jay - I love a self-deprecating parody that is spot-on perfect. It really makes it work... no safety net, if you screw up you can end up wearing the suit you just weaved. Did I mix metaphors there? Well, anyway, No hacking here. 5's...

Did you put Leah because you know it's my middle name?

Sweetie, Atty. Gen. Asscropped (relation?) has nothing on me -- I know your full name, social security number, your I.P. address, and among many other things, the names of last 10 websites you visited (you naughty girl...)

(...How frightening is it that given the age we're living in, I actually feel compelled to say that that was just a joke...?)
