The Lyrics

Okay yes, this is a bragging rights song. Because, well not many authors here reach fifty parodies, and I'm honestly kinda surprised I did. But I know that if I had not received as much support as I have from a lot of you here, then I know making Parody Fifty would not be possible. So this one's for you guys. One-bomb it if you want, it won't stop me from making more parodies.
People try to to reach this high (I just wrote parody fifty!)
Just because they get the fives (I just wrote parody fifty!)
The future looks so awfully b-b-bright (I just wrote parody fifty!)
It seems I write my parodies right! (I just wrote parody fifty!)

This is parody fifty!
This is parody fifty, baby!

Why don't you all f-f-five this song (I just wrote parody fifty!)
And don't try to bad-mouth what I've done wrong (I just wrote parody fifty!)
I ain't trying to act so dang c-c-cocky (I just wrote parody fifty!)
I'm just psyched I wrote parody f-f-fifty (I just wrote parody fifty!)

This is parody fifty!
This is parody fifty, baby!

Why don't you all f-f-f-five this song?! (I just wrote parody fifty!)
Am-I-Right is where I b-b-belong! (I just wrote parody fifty!)
I'm just a ball of energ-g-gy (I just wrote parody fifty!)
I'm so psyched I reached number fifty (I just wrote parody fifty!)

This is parody fifty!
This is parody fifty, baby!

People still give me ones (I just wrote parody fifty!)
But my work is never done (I just wrote parody fifty!)
People say I'm not so g-g-good (I just wrote parody fifty!)
I've achieved what some never could (I just wrote parody fifty!)

This is parody fifty!
This is parody fifty, baby!

[now the fun begins]
(Explosive drumming, guitar and bass playing, and other crazy chaotic carnage by the help of some of my very best friends here. Old Man Ribber and Andria shred their electric guitars smashing it into my drum set as I practically splinter my drumsticks on the toms and cymbals, Christy's knocking over guitar and bass amps, DJ has his cowbell and is denting the hell out of it and helping me on my set, Blackjack's bass is overpowering the amps causing the stage to catch fire, the rest of my friends [you know who you are] help us just destroy the stage and really get the celebration going)

I just wrote parody fifty!
I just wrote parody fifty!
I just wrote parody fifty!
I just wrote parody fifty!
I just wrote parody fifty!
I just wrote parody fifty!

This is parody fifty!
My special thanks once again to those that helped me destroy the stage, and special thanks to BlackJack21 for writing the Am-I-Right Hoedown and giving me the idea in the first place.

Congrats on your half-century. ;D

Yep, only 173 out of the 703 listed authors has made it to fifty, not to mention the hundreds or thousands who never get the the 10-level required to be listed on the Author page. ... Have only done even hundreds myself, as you saw today (What were the odds? :), but congrats on being in the upper one-fourth already!

As for the song, would like to have seen some variation in the echo lines and choruses (always do; shows more creativity and gives us more laughs). Something like:

Don't you think that's awf'lly nifty?
Me, with words, I'm never thrifty

Etc. And the echo stresses on the "o" in "parody", which sings awkwardly:

TALKin' 'BOUT my GENerAtion
I just WROTE parOdy FIFty

Easy to fix in lots of ways; here's one:
THIS one HERE is NUMber FIFty

Otherwise, good use of OS for your purpose, including the st-st-stuttering. ;) Minor nits only, so a full pass: 555. But expect #100 to be judged more critically.:-D Cheers!

Congrats on the Big 5-0 of parodies, SM! Yeah, I got that same comment from TT earlier as well. But at least your satire is a little better than mine. And a 1-bomb shouldn't stop you from writing as well. Great work and 5's!
