The Lyrics

My main specialty is song parodies and this one is about Jack Black's director from King Kong. Enjoy.
Comin to ya on a dusty road
Good movies i make a truck load
And when you get it you got something
So dont worry cause Im coming

Im a showman
Im a showman
Im a showman
Im a showman

Got what I got the hard way
And my films get better each and every day.
So honey dont you fret
Cause you aint seen nothing yet

Im a showman
Im a showman
Play it Kong!
Im a showman
Im a showman

I was brought up on the new york street
I learned how to make some films before I could eat
I was educated from film stock
When I make my movies I just cant stop

Im a showman
Im a showman
Im a showman
Im a showman

Well grab the film and I'll let you be a star
Give you fame and you'll be in the movies
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Im a showman
Im a showman
Who's the showman
Im a showman
Im a showman
Im a showman.
Thank you.

A few lines were the same, but a great parody nonetheless.

Jackson's remake of my classic blows. But I liked your parody anyway.
Ann Hammond - May 24, 2007 - Report this comment

This song really does describe me accurately. Jack Black really plays me quite well.
