The Lyrics

Kind of a "thank you" to Santa Claude for instigating the SOTM competition
Claude P, I am oh, so glad that you're around this site
You've been getting quite a name here at amiright
Urine testing, eating dogs and cats
And now you've had this great idea
[To] replace the voting stats:

It's the Song of the Month
Yes, the Song of the Month
Show us all who wrote the best
Wasn't me? I'm so depressed
Now all I need write
Is a song that ain't shite
No more singin' the blues

Claude P, you just won't believe
The hit you've made around here
They're already talking 'bout
The "Author of the Year"
Someone witty who can raise a laugh
Still I get this feeling that it will be you (or Spaff)

It's the Song of the Month
Yes, the Song of the Month
Read the songs, it's loads of fun
Then vote on them, 3-2-1
If I keep going in
Maybe someday I'll win
I'll be King of the Views

It's a necessity for
Any Parodista
Do you think that you have got
What it takes, hey Mista?
I'm submitting, yes I'm a captive fan
Composing lots of parodies while sitting on the can...

For the Song of the Month
Yes, the Song of the Month
If it's good, then cheer and clap
Just don't just say that it was... mediocre
Or has something gone wrong
With this "excellent" song?
Too bad, thing is you'll lose

Hey, have you written a song?
An all-conquering song?
Or has winning passed you by?
Don't feel too bad - nor have I
But one thing I know - a new month, another go..
Enter the Song of the
Write a Song of the
Win the Song of the Month
I'll win the Song of the Month
Well... maybe next time

Bravo!!! I'm especially happy because that's the only JCS song I know well at all. Lots of great lines but "composing lots of parodies while sitting on the can..." was especially funny. Great stuff.

"Composing lots of parodies while sitting on the can" ...... In "The Thinker" pose, of course, eh? 5's ;-)

Claude - it's also the only JCS song that I really like, and remarkably fun to parody...
Well, JD, I did think of mentioning "Rodin", but thought Chucky might consider that a bit too risqué ;-)

I loved "now all I need write is a song that ain't shite". (~sings~) ...Here are three fives for you!
Rick D - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Why don't you do the rest of "Superstar"? I burned out.
Phil Alexander - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
'cause I don't like the music, Rick... apart from this one. Very tempted to do Joseph, though.
Rick D - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
"Seven years of parodies are on their way, songs a plenty, Phil is gonna send your way..." (Joseph)
Phil Alexander - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
But what's that, Rick? I ain't that quick - will take me seven years, you know...
After that, the future doesn't look so bright
Inspiration dries up, no more things to write... ;-)

+++Restoring vote lost due to stupidly never seeing this before+++

After supposedly coining "Santa Claude" in a comment just moments ago, I see that you beat me to it by nearly a year, Philbo. Nice job.

DKTOS, but I love Phil Alexander parodies, I love Claude tributes, I love the SOTM, and I love being Paul Robinsoned in shout-outs. Shoot, if this contained swarms of naked hotties, I'd never leave my computer again.

I saw your comment, Spaff, and was trying to work out where TF I mention "Santa Claude" in this song... only took me half an hour to spot the comment at the top. D'Oh! Just re-read this one for the first time in ages - it's not bad, is it?
