The Lyrics

I haven't released a parody in months, but suddenly, I got inspired. Well, here's the stuff. You can put the parody to either the original version or the unplugged version, I was listening to the original version when I wrote it. I'm not sure how many songs there are about other songs...
What do I do when things get quiet
After the day the music died
I've heard rapping and rocking much too long
I'm hating everything I've tried

Hey Ya!
An international smash
Hey Ya!
On NPR and on Smooth Jazz
Hey Ya!
Now I'm listening to Outkast every day

I couldn't listen to Linkin Park none
Ruben Studdard let me down
Avril Lavigne, she's so 2002
I need that catchy, happy sound

Hey Ya!
It's burning up the charts
Hey Ya!
It made Shakin' It an art
Hey Ya!
Turn it up my favorite part's right now

They're playing it on every station
It's at the movies, on TV
Don't even say "It's getting overplayed"
It's got infallibility

Hey Ya!
It's mainstream, but that's okay
Hey Ya!
It's better than, let's say
Macarena!
Which you'll hear at baseball games all the time

Hey Ya!
It gets me on the floor
Hey Ya!
I shake it till I'm sore
Hey Ya!
It'll be on the radio for a month or nine

I Love Layla, as well The whole Derek & Domino's album was a true rock classic! That was my fave version! Thanks for your amusing spin of the unplugged Clapton set!
