The Lyrics

My 25th parody is all about...my 25th parody. I wanted to fit more names in, but it didn't work out. But I had a long list of authors I wanted to include, and if you're not in the lyrics below, you were most likely on the list.
One song over the line, sweet Chucky
One song over the line
Postin' it here on the AmIRight site
One song over the line

It's taken twenty-five to get here, sweet Chucky
Simple compositions of mine
Postin' them here on the AmIRight site
One lampoon at a time

On author's page, there is a line
Your name goes above when you write twenty-five
And now that I've finally made it into the top submitter's club
It's good to be up in the big leagues, no longer be a scrub

Now I'm one song over the line, sweet Chucky
One song over the line
With Arwen and Claude and Jeff and MooRocca
I'm up over the line

I'm proud to be in such company, Chucky
Masters of the parody
Like Leo and Spaff and Rick and Johnny
Kim and Scathe and Emi

I've been workin' for many moons
Trying to find lyrics for many tunes
I've met witty people on the message board
Drawn together by the parodies - their common chord
They gave me their support and now I'm

One song over the line, sweet Chucky
One song over the line
Postin' it here on the AmIRight site
One song over the line

Hope I prove myself worthy, Chucky
Hope my lyrics are fine
'Cause I feel the standard is higher up here
One song over the line
If you don't like this parody, you'll certainly hate my other ones (which can be found by clicking on "Parody Authors" and finding my name).

Thanks all. Michael, I wanted to fit you in with the big leagues / scrub line given your affinity to baseball (I'm going to the Rangers game Sunday), but I couldn't come up with anything that worked for me. But now that you've got me thinking, you may need to start looking for a guest appearance by yourself in an upcoming baseball parody...

Three fives over the line!

Nice work on your 25th parody. I've been at AmIRight for less than a year, but I'm still flattered that you consider me a pro even though I'm still a little new at parody writing. Anyway, 3 5's

Rex - I haven't been around the site for quite a spell now...I just dropped in and was scanning OS titles for something different that I knew...I happen to be a big fan of Brewer & Shipley, so it was interesting and fun to see this one here. I just happened to be listening to an old cassette tape (made it in 1978 - still sounds clean!) I made of their stuff a couple days ago...now I need to go listen again to see how this parody works with the OS. Thanks.

Perfect choice for #25, Wrecks. I still remember the thrill of reaching #25 myself, enabling me to finally submit an author bio to Chucky. (That one's not there any more; I think the bio-less Claude Prez is the only person who ever read it.) Anyhoo - great job again, and HEY EVERYONE COME CHECK THIS OUT BECAUSE YOU MAY BE MISSING YOUR SHOUT-OUT.

I guess this one got such high scores because the only people who reviewed it were parodists who submit to this site. Too "inside" for general appeal--why say I'll hate your other efforts if I don't like this. I sure HOPE the other 24 aren't as pathetic!

Yeah, I totally missed my shout out...as it were. Thanks for throwing me in there...=) As late as this may be...(you probably have like, 200 posted by now)...congrats, Rex. Nice work here!

And GREAT song choice, by the way...I only found this because I was checking to see how many of this OS had been posted...I couldn't believe there were only 2 before mine! Do people not know the OS? How? It's FABulous...=)
