The Lyrics

Ads sure are an annoyance in everyday life aren't they? Oh, and 20th time this song has been parodied. BooYah!!!
Advertisements, sway my action
I must buy this, dumb contraption

So I buy, and I buy, from some guy, and here's why
The price is low, I have Geico

Doesn't matter who you are
They will make you want what you don't know
They guarantee so and so
Will always help with constipation
and so I buy it in frustration

Should have said no
no, no, no
hey, hey, hey
great deals today

Advertisements, sway my action
Can't get rid of, this distraction

So I buy, and I buy, from some guy, with a tie
I need TiVo, and some roll-os

They will try and convince me
That my face is really ugly
Come try this cream for free
Only four payments of nineteen ninety-five
And shipping is four fifty

That's a low blow
low, low, low
hey, hey, hey
Now get away

I don't need this, dumb contraption
It won't give me, satisfaction

Still I buy, and I buy, from some guy, with a tie
Dodge Derango, an Oreo

Now my head will soon explode
So I make a wish to be blind and deaf
So I'm tuning away this world
Well that Tommy he was really good at pinball
cause that guy could shut away it all

I don't need no...
no, no, no
hey, hey, hey
that's what I say

I don't need no
stupid TiVo
Flakey Gieco

Damn distraction
No dumb contraption
will sway my action
No more distractions

I don't need no...

This was well worth the three easy payments of 5!

Parodies that trash crass commercialism almost always get a smile ( or a smirk ) from me - and in this case - 555 as well.

Thanks a bunch ever'body. I'd have a head-ache from trying to parody Billy Joel if it weren't for your kind words. Gosh darn it River of Dreams is harder than it looks...

Thanks Merry. And I'm commenting for you specifically to annoy you about not catching my last LotR parody. Seriously, you and Pip had to know this sort of thing would happen when you picked out your names. http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/queen141.shtml

Thanks ABD, I hope Stick 'em up keeps climbin'
AussieBullDog - January 09, 2004 - Report this comment
That'd be nice, but I think it's had its run. Wouldn't mind seeing my Julie Andrews parody keep the climb going though. Back on topic, you should have a nice little hit with this one.
