The Lyrics

In memoriam - Maurice Gibb
Well you can tell by the way I'm cold and blue,
I've got no breathing left to do,
And while my body's going cold,
Think of the records we have sold.

'Coz it's not right, it's not okay,
The operation went astray,
They say that my stomach's blocked but I think my heart is f***ed,
Whether there's a lover who suffers necrophilia,
I'm not stayin alive, I'm not stayin' alive.
'Cause my heart is broken we'll go and sue the surgeon,
I'm not stayin' alive, not stayin' alive.
I'm not, I'm not, stayin' alive...

well now I can't live, i guess I'll die,
Spent too much time jwearing my trouser's tight,
My heart can't cope, I guess I'll choke,
Get nice obituaries I hope,

'Coz it's not right, it's not okay,
The operation went astray,
Maybe we can understand, why the surgeon cocked up his plans,
Whether there's a lover who suffers necrophilia,
Not stayin alive, I'm not stayin' alive.
'Cause my heart is broken we'll go and sue the surgeon,
I'm not stayin' alive, not stayin' alive.
I'm not, I'm not, stayin' alive...

Is this supposed to be a tribute or a post-mortem slam? Whatever it is, this "song" won't please Bee Gee (or Maurice Gibb) fans.
Ghetto John - January 14, 2003 - Report this comment
this is no way to do a tribute, and making of someone after they die isnt cool either.

This parody got a 1 from me on funiness and overall rating >:(

Yeah, i really dont think this is a tribute...it seems like an insult

That is the sorriest excuse for a parody since all the anti-Britney parodies (minus the Brit is a Man song I wrote; that was an ode to something BillyFlorio wrote, as opposed to an intentional rip on Britney). May you go to the opposite of where Mo Gibb is now.

Blech. Awful.

I've got nothing in principle that's against taking the pi$$ out of people, dead or otherwise. But there's funny, and there's, well, not - and this falls very much in the latter category. It doesn't even scan that well.

Insulting, I hated it! And it's not because I like Bee Gees (I don't like them)...
Mike Florio - January 18, 2003 - Report this comment

It's the worst parody ever.
Anny - June 10, 2006 - Report this comment
Man...JUST NO! You call that a tribute? You said "In memorium" and then wrecked the whole message by writing something potentially insulting and horrible, about a legend. I'm not a huge fan of the Bee Gee's, but I know Maurice would have deserved a way better tribute, to honour his career. Ripping on dead people isn't cool, especially if you're making fun of them. Maurice would probably be pissed if he was alive today. This parody was so not funny, or impressing. It's just awful and rude. If you died, would you want this sort of thing written about you? Show some respect, would you?

OK, enough of this! I realize that it's insulting, but it says nothing about it being a tribute!
Mare Garrel - April 19, 2009 - Report this comment
Okay, this is coming from the biggest Bee Gees fan you'll ever meet. This "song" was DOWNRIGHT OFFENSIVE! I can't believe someone would actually make up a song like that and called it a "tribute". Holy cow, bashing someone's lost loved one is one thing, but that man was my IDOL! Not cool, man. Just not cool.

This is the worst thing I have ever been exposed to. I am a huge fan of the Bee Gees and whether you like them or not this is just cruel. I hope is family never has to hear this crap. I am sure the author will be in hell when he is no longer "stayin alive." What a JERK
