The Lyrics

This I hope to be my next "Seize the day"
A parody write
A parody read
perhaps you just wanna vote instead
Its a website thats real neat
with new songs up each day
except for on Saturday

A parody read
A parody write
It all depends apon your mood tonight
ill write stuff any time i want
in the realms of amiright.com

Songs are ok with me these days
got a new rank, got a new comment
got a new song, in a new forum,
and the voting is fine

Theres Tong and Jer'my Otto
And Junior
and Lebeiw
This site has held our songs for oh, so much time

I remember those days that my songs were on a streak
Mcdonalds, 3 thousand miles, and let me pee
write a song about Lott, write a song about New Orleans
Jim A, alright,
'bout some stuff that we all write

Billy and Michael
are the popular writers
and the brothers that have many songs
writing about driving and about lighting
the 8 candles on
but nobody wrote any finer
than Billy and Michael 'bout comunist China
we never knew we could write more than that in our lives
surley Billy and Michael would always get in the top 5

Michael and Billy
were still writing 'bout things
in the summer of 1995
When they found the website known as Amiright
Everyone said they were crazy
Billy, you know, your off on pacing
Michael could never aford to get songs in the top 5
and there we were writin when Billy and Michael arrived

They got to 100
their parodies thundered
over the next few more years
they started to write
about amiright
but theyre end wasnt at all comin near

They wrote for a while
in a very nice style
but its always the same in the end
Mike got up to forth
as a matter of corse
until Tone def came over him
But Michael had the dream
with Billy in the teens
and started an opra from then

Michael and Billy
had wrote many parodies
in this summer that came to an end
from the sly to the schmos
it just started the show
their careers had just to begin
They wrote all about speeders
The best amiright brothers wrote their speaches
To accept their awards for writing their songs oh, so nice
Thats all Ill say about Michael and Billy
Cant tell you much more, Ill ruin the parody
So here we are saving Michael and Billy some pi

A parody read
a parody write
it all depends apon this cool website
Ill write songs any time I want
and send them to amiright.com

When did I write about communist china?

Terrible - you don't seem to understand the concept of rhyme in many, many portions of this song - this is a key component of writing a parody. The subject matter is egotistical, because you're not in the Top 5 very often as far as I can tell. At least you won't be in the Top 5 very often if you continue mocking Billy Joel in this grotesque manner. I don't enjoy ripping on parodies, but when they're this poor, I must.

Will you people leave me alone? Im not the only one who misses a ryme here and there! And you seem new so you wouldnt remember my constant streak of parodies on the charts...constantly...late last year...Every song I submitted would go to the charts, but then I took a break and returned to find no luck in this new year....and Ive been rushing just to get more parodies than Tone-def so Ive been down...Trust me...I dont suck!

A 5 for ambition, a 5 for effort, but a 3 for actual practice. It was worth a shot, and it's only a step below your best.
Leo Jay - May 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Damn -- tough room! I know I'm late to the party, but to me, the rhyme scheme actually seems to match the original very closely -- the various sections have irregular and inconsistent structures -- maybe that's where you were thrown off, Frank? Though your comment seems to suggest that you know BJ's music pretty well, so I'm not sure why you wouldn't see the similarity between this and the original in that regard. Some impefect rhymes, yes, but that's fine with pop music, and this certainly takes no more liberties that BJ himself in that area... Geez, you're gonna hate the one I'm about to put up to this tune...

This is terrible and you didn't even spell the name of the original correctly.

As Ron pointed out, it's "R-E-S-T-A-U-R-A-N-T". Agree with everything Frank said. And agree with Michael ("this is only a step below your best") because your best is not very good either.

Damn, we're nitpicking typos now. What's up with this parody? Why does it inspire such bitchiness?
