The Lyrics

After all the AmiRight anthems and tributes I've done (fifteen at last count), I
decided to provide a little balance to the love-fest by writing this
anti-anthem. Enjoy and PLEASE don't take it personally. Unless you're the
one's guy, in which case YOU SUCK.
Parodies
Frequently I write
Up till three
Way too many nights.....
Oh, I was born
Sick puns in my head
But only some
Have reached my standards yet.....
That's why I call these

Bad parodies, and I can't deny
Baaaad parodies
Here on AmiRight
Cloggin' up this site
Every day and night

Hackneyed jokes
And syntax twisted 'round
Lack of flow
Runs songs into the ground....
That one's guy
Seems to know my name
He's inclined
To click one's with no shame....
I can hear him say

"Bad parodies, and I don't give five's!"
Bad, bad parodies
(Quite a few are mine....
This makes 69....)

(Muted bugle solo)

(Drum solo by Wild Man)

Misspelled words
Stick right in my craw;
Missin' verbs:
Some songs' fatal flaw....
I can't rate
What makes no sense to me
Punctuate,
Then I might give three's!
Why do they post these

Bad parodies
That I can't describe?
Bad, bad parodies!
Can't believe my eyes!

Makin' fun
Of one song at a time....
When it sucks
It's not some heinous crime...
Caught Weird Al
Just the other night
He's got chops
But also songs that bite....
But still he sells me

Bad parodies, and Al can't deny!
Baaaad, bad parodies,
Millions gonna buy!

And I wrote some
Bad parodies,
Oh, yeah, yeah!
Baaaad parodies,
Still, they may get five's!
Oh, yeah!
Bad parodies! It's the way we'll stay!
Nerdy for nerdy!
D'oh! Somebody double-one'd me!
Double-one's?? Triple-one's???
Yeah, some Bad Parodies
Killin' old Chuck!

Thanks for drum solo there Bobby Gomez. Being a rookie in this pro player stadium ain't easy. I think I score parodies higher than most out of respect for the talented authors. Sometimes parody writing is not as easy as it seems, but were else can you get graded for your ideas? And as for Ones Guy ,only Chucky G had the capability to track him down and snuff him out. Which leads me to believe that it must be a valued contributor to Amiright? Just one therory.

Nice work. I don't know if I downloaded a messed-up copy or something though, because it seems to end after where you put the solo... so I obviously couldn't tell if the genius evident in the first section was also evident in the second, but I'm assuming it is and giving you 5/5/5

Pretty good for a song on bad parodies.

Very good,Bob! Wild Man, I agree with your theory about the 1's guy.

Wild Man: excellent drum solo! You're no rookie when it comes to heart, and that is what counts, my man. And you can get graded for your ideas elsewhere (college) but it's not as much fun as this. Neminem: you gave me 5's for half a song??? Damn, you're good!! I appreciate it. And about the infamous one's guy: I think he's actually a figment of our collective imagination, kind of a bogeyman, our own Osama. I have no problem with people voting one's, but it would be nice to see some justification. In the meantime, I'll continue to use him as a literary creation, whether real or imagined, because I think it's funny to cut him down to size with no fear of reprisal. d;:^)

'Cellent p'dy of a 'cellent song. BTW, hope you have no p'blem with 'cessive 'postrophes! (Our worst p'dy fault!)

Nice job
Bob Gomez - September 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Dear Merry: The extent to which apostrophes help the reader to approximate actual sung lyrics is a positive thing for me. I often use -in's instead of -ing's because that's how it's sung; I also add vowels (e.g., Baaaaaad) because that's how I hear it on the record. Whatever improves the rhythmic flow of lyrics, I'm all for. And if it helps the reader to "hear" an accent, then change the spelling, add apostrophes, whatever. Think of Elmer Fudd singing, "Come waft wif me, wet's waft, wet's waft away...." If it works for you, I say do it. d;:^)

Thanks Pat for your comment. There are pranksters amoung us on the comment board. I guess the best thing to do is to try to ignore the obvious. Even if it is annoying.
