The Lyrics

1959, actually. Written, as were most of the Coasters' songs, by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller.
I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2.
CBS with the Grammy 'cast, and the usual "P.U.!"
Eminem was comin' on, his attitude off the graph.
And he said, "Gimme that Grammy now, or I'll saw Moby in half!"

And then he grabbed him. (And then?)
He slapped him 'round. (And then?)
He flashed a middle finger! (And then? And then?)

A-a-and then along came Jones! Norah Jones!
Slow walkin' Jones, slow singin' Jones.
Along came Ravi's daughter Jones.

Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack.
I hoped the next act wouldn't be that lousy Nickelback.
Complicated Kid Lavigne was onstage having fits.
And she said, "Gimme that Grammy, now, or I'll sing all of my hits!"

And then she stood there. (And then?)
She tightened her tie. (And then?)
She sang that song about the skater boy! (And then? And then?)

A-a-and then along came Jones! Norah Jones!
Slow walkin' Jones, slow singin' Jones.
Along came Ravi's daughter Jones.

(saxophone solo, by the immortal King Curtis in the original)

I got so bugged that I missed Springsteen, so I turned on another show.
But there was another lousy song and a crummy video.
Nelly looked down at J-Lo and said with an evil sneer,
"If you don't gimme that Grammy, I'll make it REALLY hot in herre!"

And then he grabbed her. (And then?)
Ben Affleck got up. (And then?)
Nelly showed him who the real daredevil is! (And then?)
Ja Rule started comin'! (And then? And then?)

A-a-and then along came Jones! Norah Jones!
Slow walkin' Jones, slow singin' Jones.
Along came Ravi's daughter Jones.
Along came Ravi's daughter Jones.
Along came Ravi's daughter Jones.
That's not to say I dislike ALL the performers lampooned herein. It's just a song. The only one I really don't like is Marshall Bruce Mathers III.

Thanks, Billy. Being a fan of Fifties songs pays off sometimes. (I'm still proud of turning another Lieber/Stoller song, "Love Potion Number 9," into "Hockey Player 99.") I'm sure that, if this site were around in 1998, somebody would've ripped Clinton by turning Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame" into "Ain't That a Stain." I'm half-tempted to turn Fats' "I'm Walkin'" into "I'm Walken." I probably would've done it already if I'd known about "Amiright Idol" in time to sign up. If somebody else wants to try it, in the words of another Fats song, "Be My Guest."

Oh, what a great parody!! You picked the perfect song for the topic and then mirrored the episodic format of the original. I wish I had written this gem!!! Great job!

Actully Michael, as can be noted on the message boards, lol, my original idea for round 2 was to the tune of Fats Dominos "Im walkin" calling it "Chris Walken"...but I couldnt make it work right, and then Kenny took the idea and make a great one (Which I think is better than mine btw)

Well done! Back when "Don't Know Why" was gaining popularity, I soooo wanted to do a cover of it - same words, but with a male vocalist and an arrangement a'la Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax": "Feel as empty as a drum (SHOON-ga SHOON-ga SHOON-ga) Don't know why I didn't come. HWAAAH!" Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), it didn't happen.
