The Lyrics

Maybe the toughest song to parody, with the possible exception of "Subterranean Homesick Blues" by Bob Dylan. That's the one "Blinded" comes from, as does "It's the End of the World As We Know It" by R.E.M. and "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel, to name just two more
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.

Madman posters host a little boaster with an old Dodge Diplomat.
In the dumps, little grumps hit creative speedbumps on the way up to the bat.
Feeling bolder in his folder, his song's a little older with no synthesizer sound
with no creeping little beeping, people dancing while they're sleeping
the radio crashed to the ground!

Laugh it up, laugh it up, laugh it up! 'Cause you are
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.

Some silicone sister got a parody blister that pointed out all of her fakes.
Poor Britney in her jitney drivin' 'round with coker Whitney, 'round her neck is that funky snake.
And hated-boy Skaterboy soon will be a waiterboy, Eminem pushed him outside.
And little Frodo's mojo blanked out in the moto-photo and left him all American Pied!

Laugh it up, laugh it up, laugh it up! 'Cause you are
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.
Finding Amiright, wrap up a new edition, get it on the board tonight.

I got up, but 1-1-1 is my plight. You can't fake it on Amiright.
"Moto-photo" doesn't rhyme with "Frodo's mojo"? Oh, like "curly-whirly" is a real word! As if.

Michael, you didnt do half of the song! Wheres the "Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun, but mama thats where the fun is" part? or the " baritone, anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east" part? half the songs not here

Billy has a point. I downloaded the first set of lyrics I found, and then patterned my parody after that one, the 45 RPM Manfred Mann version from '77, not the Bruce version from "Greetings from Asbury Park" in '73. (What's a record? A record, a vinyl platter, playing at 45 revolutions per minute, my young precii -- a word that's a bone thrown to the Ringmasters.) On the one hand, I took the easy way out. On the other hand, that's the version that most people know. Same with the Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man" which does only the second verse, not all five of Dylan's. Sure, I did the parody equivalent of copping a plea, but I'm not gonna start over without a huge hue-and-cry. It was hard enough to find words that rhyme with "Britney" with all that pressure on my kidneys. Hey, wait a minute...

I think ¨lose yourself¨by Eminem is tougher to parody than blinded by the light. Try to match that rhyme scheme and you'll see what I mean - ¨blinded by the light¨ has a lot of tight rhymes but its simpler.

I agree with Billy...there's a piece missing. I give you points because it's a hard song to tackle, I just don't think it's funny..sorry

I tried my hand at this one again recently and it forced me to go back and appreciate some takes that I missed, like yours. GREAT WORK throughout. Seeing as how my recent take is LOTR-themed, I had to actively try NOT to borrow your 'Frodo's Mojo' line. Great work again Mike.
