The Lyrics

The true, darker side of Kristof Robertson: seemingly mild mannered parodist, is finally revealed....Mwahahahah!!
Don't go, strangeruntil you've scored me
It's your approval that I seek
Seems pathetic; a little tawdry
But I've worked on this song all week!
Your comments, lovelybut I could care less
I need big numbers to survive
I won't feel no shamethis isn't a game
I want you all to give me fives!

Don't go dissing me for pacing
I count each syllable with care
My massive ego often needs bracing
Those threes and fours cause me despair
I don't want clever conversation
For my great work I just want thanks
You think I'm clever? Time to deliver
Click on that mouse and give me cinques!

And if you're thinking lower scoresrefrain
I'm sure not on this site for fun
Let's do the mathematics once again
It's one, one, one plus one plus one

I'm the Picasso of words and phrases
I want to win Song of the Month
With mucho cincos you'll sing my praises
If you're a German dude, it's funf!!

I was going to be a wisenheimer and give you a 5-4-5, but then I saw those "cinques" in there, and had to admit you earned the the triple nickel.

Cinques a lot; this was great. I once thought about doing "I Love Me Just the Way I Are" but never did. Excellent stuff.
Mikey Squirrel - August 27, 2005 - Report this comment
EGO-- Wow, ain't too proud to beg, huh? Well, since you asked so endearingly, I suppose I can grant some cinques your way. Good job, Kristof.
