Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Actually, I prefer mangoes to papayas....
I thought love possible in social cliques
Groups who always reject nerds like me
They were out to get me
That's the way it seemed
Disaffection greeted all my schemes

Now I'm in disgrace, 'cause I'm a pariah
Not a trace of love can I find
I'm cast out, (whoa) I'm a pariah!
Tho' I'm a messiah in my mind

I thought people more or less approachable
Seems the more I tried the less I got
What's the use in hopin'?
All you get is shit
When I needed hugs, well I got hit

Now I'm in disgrace, 'cause I'm a pariah
Not a trace of love can I find
I'm cast out, (whoa) I'm a pariah!
Eat my papaya all alone

I know you're still new here. Read Johnny D. Not only a good writer, but is rather like you in philosophy and age and life experience. (And a naughty boy)

I must have been sleepy when I wrote that first line. It should have contained a was . One point off for pacing! And thanks, Johnny D, for the vote. I'll make sure to peruse your songs.
