The Lyrics

Boy bands and girl bands. Hmmm..what happens after their 15 minutes are up?
I see our latest pop song fall
And see the Billboard lists them all
From number one to ninety two
We had a hit song for some time
But I'm horrified to find
Our famous spotlight time is through

(sung by a group of out of work girl and boy bands)
Guess they're through with us
Don't it make you wanna cry?
Guess they're through with us
Guess they're through with us
Time to give real work a try
Guess they're through with us
Say bye bye

The Spice Girls had a line of toys
And so did the Backstreet Boys
But not the Town that starts with O
N'Sync had Justin Timberlake
But then he split and sealed their fate
And Britney Spears is just a 'ho

(sung by the same group of out of work girl and boy bands)
Guess they're through with us
Don't it make you wanna cry?
Guess they're through with us
Guess they're through with us
Time to give real work a try
Guess they're through with us
Say bye bye

(sax solo)

I hear the brand new hit songs fall
From the pop charts on the wall
As people look for something new
And when you hear the next song come
And it's like the last they sung
Then you know their time is through

(sung once again by the same group of out of work girl and boy bands, each holding up a cardboard sign saying "Will Sing for Food")

Guess they're through with us
Don't it make you wanna cry?
Guess they're through with us
Guess they're through with us
Time to give real work a try
Guess they're through with us
Say bye bye

This was really a 4 for quality. I gave you the extra point for the sentiment. Forget Justin, this is the in-Sync we trust.

The "will sing for food" sign made a great visual. Excellent.

Didn't somebody once do a video with an M.C. Hammer lookalike holding up a "Will Rap for Food" sign along a highway?
