The Lyrics

This site, AmIright, is butt kicking,
Since printing it's first parody
We change the words,
Giving songs a brand new meaning
We're AmIright, and We Right The Songs

We Right The Songs that show up here each day
We Right The Songs, to spoof what real words say
We Right The Songs, and make folks laugh or cry
We Right The Songs, We Right The Songs

Our motive is to stir you
Tickle that funny bone in your soul
And when we find some votes and comments there
We're young again, even though we may be old

If our titles catch your eye
And give you spirit to take a glance
You may find some negative, and not approve
Not your applecart
But. maybe one will touch your heart..
It's from us, it's for you
It's from us, it's for you
It's the crazy thing we do

We Right The Songs submitted here, each day
We Right The Songs, with many things to say
We Right The Songs to make folks laugh or cry
We Right The Songs, We Right The Songs

You're Right! Quiz time: What is the opposite of " left " ?
AFW - February 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks, Johnny...let's see...hmmm..opposite of "Left"...is it "Taken"?
Johnny D - February 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Ah-HA! Very good! You are CORRECT! :-D

Good stuff AFW. Not sure I get Johnny D's quiz though.
Johnny D - February 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Nothing TO get, it's just nonsense. Well, it does suggest that, sometimes, folks might tend to assume there's only one correct answer for a question with more than one equally correct answer.

Yes, we do. For example, "Safe Sex" and "Lab Test" could be referred to as "A Parodies", as opposed to, say, "A Parodem" or "A Parodose". (if unclear, ask anyone from Brooklyn for clarification lol).

Good thing there isn't a grammar criterion, or there would be a point deducted for the "apostrophitis" in the second line. Phil Alexander's "Apostrophes contd. - A Few of the Difficult Bits" should fix that nicely. (Same thing on the home of this site -- "adult's only").

Otherwise, yes, let's make it the official theme song. 555

Thanks, Tommy....yes, have thought of that parody pun, often..pair dese...pair a doze.....by the way...what is the secret to spacing lines and paragraphing here in the comment section?....mine all seem to run together no matter how I type 'em
Tommy Turtle - February 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Line spacing requires using HTML (Human/Turtle Mockery Language), which is fairly new to Tommy as well, as turtles generally communicate with just ASCII (Amphibious Sea Creature Information Implementation).

To make a new line, type this: . To make a new paragraph with a blank line in between, do that sequence twice in a row (no spaces). Can't actually demonstrate the finished product cuz the puter will just turn 'em into spaces, but take the spaces out of the following: . Any extra spaces you type in this box are ignored, while the above characters create space without any other action on your part.

Love your handle, BTW. He certainly is one (farce).
TT - February 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Darn it, didn't go through. Left bracket (that's the thing above the comma), then "br", then right bracket (above the period -- no wisecracks). No spaces in between those characters; don't use the quote marks I used. Do that sequence once for a new line and twice (no spaces) for a new paragraph with a blank line in between. (Told ya this was new to TT also).

bang on, AFW - and there are so many LEFT to RIGHT! - 555
Johnny D - February 04, 2006 - Report this comment
But Stuart, what if your RIGHT to LEFT --- how does one write without some kind of writing implement?
Stuart McArthur - February 04, 2006 - Report this comment
one of the rights we have left is the right to write, JD - the write to right (left-to-right, right-to-left, right or left) never left, right?

or did it? (...now I'm confused)
AFW - February 04, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks for the lesson, Tommy...I think, I hope I got it...my dog, Sniffy tried to explain your instructions to me, too, but I think it's hopeless ;. and Thanks, Stuart, good line
Tommy Turtle - February 05, 2006 - Report this comment
What about the right to rites? Or was the right to rites left out of our rights???

There was a 1950s song (way before The Turtle's time, of course) by Patti Page called "Left Right Out Of Your Heart" (she got dumped by a Marine, hence a lot of "left, right" etc.). It would make a great OS, and out of respect for those who initiated the above thread, The Turtle will leave it to one of them to do. Doing it politically should be yet another "fish in a barrel" shot.

AFW, it must not have been a very good lesson, as still see no line breaks in your comments, or was it Sniffy rather than TT who was ineffective?
AFW - February 05, 2006 - Report this comment
yes, I remember that old P Page song.....and yes, Sniffy is my alter ego and we're in the slow learner class, I'm afraid...oh, well, we can still chew gum and write parodies at the same time....
Tommy Turtle - February 05, 2006 - Report this comment
And some pretty darn good ones, too... This one is too good to chance leaving on disk; I;m gonna print it and save it in a Manilow envelope.

And if we have the right to rites, what about the right to write rites? Or did one of the Founding Fathers, a Constitution-wright, write our right to write rites right out of our rights?

Thanks, again...Tommy, for commenting and reading me my rights Catch you on the parody line..
