The Lyrics

How about an AmiRight Anthem contest? Starting now!
AmiRight Writer!
AmiRight Writer!

(Guitar intro)

My name is Rory, I'm a nerdy man
And my stinking wife doesn't understand!
I take two Valium and I pop a beer
Then I wrack my brain 'cause I wanna be an

AmiRight Writer! AmiRight Writer!

Anybody listening, and I beg you please
Give my song a click, maybe give me three's?
I'm no Cervantes or an Ambrose Bierce
But I think I'm funny and I wanna be an

AmiRight Writer!
AmiRight Writer!

AmiRight Writer!
AmiRight Writer!

(Guitar riff)

The other day I wrote a left-wing song,
It was more Bush-whacking than a William Tong!
I got low ratings like I've never seen!
Someone gimme a break, 'cause I wanna be an

AmiRight Writer!
AmiRight Writer!

Come on Grosvenor, where's your business plan?
You could charge admission and you'd be Da Man!
Stop the nonsense, giving yuks for free!
You could rake it in, 'cause you know that we'd

Pay for bad writers!
Pay for bad writers!

There's tons of topics that I can choose from,
There's the war, Osama and of course Saddam!
I blew my nose and got a great idea--
Gotta boogie now, and I'm gonna be an

It not that easy writing parodies
But the courts have stated we have liberties!
I steal some phrases, and a rhyme or two,
And make up the rest, so don't tell me you're a

Plagiarized Writer! Plagiarized Writer!

There's Merry, Pippin and there's old Tone-Def,
Malcolm Higgins right and Bob Gomez left!
An international community
Of pathetic punsters who are proud to be

Looks like you already added some extra verses of your own - but that's alright, 'cus I'm in one! You knew how to get my 5's! (Hey, I never said I wasn't easy...). Great parody! :-D

There ARE several good parodies promoting amiright, but this is one of the best. I relate to this parody on several levels - I, too, wish that we parody writers would be paid, and although the adjective "stinking" does not apply to my wife, she really does not understand my fascination with this web site.

Good one, I especially liked the pathetic punning of 'bush-whacked' and 'gotta boogie now'. It takes talent to work pun-ishing phrases like that in!
