The Lyrics

One day I went out surfing
I was looking for some parodies
I saw lots of hot and funny stuff
On a site called AmIWrite

A parody I came across that day
Was a bust on the president
It had potential, I thought it wasn't bad
That is as far as it went

I've been on the net and seen a post with no shame
It was something that was better than lame
As the post went, it was much better than lame
But the poster only wanted to blame, he said

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

I can't say what's the poster's name
But he writes in a political voice
The only thing I can say is that
His first name seems to rhyme with choice

I tried to tell him that his stuff weren't bad
And suggested that would make it killer
But the poster only wanted me to say it was great
'Cuz his last name sound like Jerry Stiller

I've been on the net and seen a posts with on shame
It was something better than lame
As the posts went, it was much better than lame
But the poster only wanted to blames, he said

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

I don't understand why he hates me so
I guess he thinks I'm liberal
Or maybe he thinks I'm just a silly kid
When I'm really not a kid at all

I wish he didn't so on the defensive
Cuz I really just wanted to say
That if he made his parody so funnier
It could be much better that way

I've been on the net and seen a post with no shame
It was something better than lame
As the post went, it was much better than lame
But the poster only wanted to blame, he said

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

UC---Well, well, you rose to the occasion. I'm a woman. Anyway, I think after reading some of the political parodies on this site you will have to agree that a good many are not necessarily funny or kind; they are written to get a message across. If you're only looking for funny, then you may want to avoid the political ones. But I won't be keeping people from making comments, even people like you. And Rolls, I don't agree with your little comment; when UC writes 275 or so more parodies, then you can compare mine to his or hers.
