The Lyrics

WOW. This is like my first parody in ages. Well, it's a disco ode to the faulty product that sparked an internet boom. None other than the ShamWow. OS: YouTube: Moskau (English Version).
ShamWow, king of Vince Shlomi's scams
Became a YouTube fad
Oft watched online

ShamWow, not like a tow'l, you know
House, RV, car or boat
Won't soak up wine

And every time, time, time that you use it
Yes, every time, time, time, it rips up!
And you should get a refund, your cash back
Will I say wow each time? I say NO!

ShamWow, ShamWow
Throw your glasses at the wall
This won't soak it up at all
No no no no no, HEY!
ShamWow, ShamWow
Throw it at a heap of muck
Will do nothing, what the buck?!
What what what what what, HEY!

ShamWow, ShamWow
Guy who sold it said it's strong
"Germans make good stuff"? He's wrong!
Ho ho ho ho ho, HEY!
ShamWow, ShamWow
Try it out yourself and then
You'll buy moist towelettes again
Ahahahaha! HEY!

(Sung by Vince while he does a goofy cossack dance)
You'll be saying wow wow wow!
I will sell it to you now!
Ho ho ho ho ho, HEY!
ShamWow, (ShamWow)
Divers use it as a tow'l
Saves you money, what great pow'r

Ooooh... oh-oh-oooooh, oooooooh...
Oh-oh-oooooh, oooooooh...

ShamWow, ShamWow
Take the receipt in your arms
Shove it up Vince Shlomi's arse
Ohohohoho, HEY!
ShamWow, ShamWow
You will make him understand
ShamWows are illegal scams,

ShamWow..... ShamWow.....

And then we'll fight, fight, fight, blood and bruises
I'll show him that such scamming is wrong
Then on the net, net, net, there'll be laughter
Cause I dispatched my old scamming foe!

ShamWow, ShamWow,
Threw the scammer at the wall
Broke it down, he had a fall
Oh oh oh oh oh, YEAH!
ShamWow, ShamWow
He won't live to make SlapChop
Cause I kicked him in the crock

(Sung while doing another goofy cossack dance)
ShamWow, ShamWow
Billy Mays will have a cow
It ripped off his Zorbeez tow'l
ShamWow, ShamWow,
Now that Vince's scam proved sin
Billy Mays will live again

Very good, 555. Since I don't watch alot of TV(or much Youtube), I looked up alittle of info on it. :)

Nice to see you writing again! This took me by surprise! I listened to this OS the first time and loved it because it reminds me of Boney M's "Rasputin". I'm a fan of Russian based discos. I was going to get ShamWow online, but I figured there's no need for it, so it's a good thing I don't own one. This would also make a great jingle for the product. Great job and wiping 555 stains on this one!

Your parody writing techniques make me say "Wow!" every time... The ScamNow however doesn't...

Look who it is!... Yeah I need to update more too. I updated a couple weeks ago, but no one really paid any attention lolGood parody as always my friend.

Great to see you back, DJ Blaze... I've been way over my head with work and my birthday (yesterday!) that I haven't been around much except to vote in the contests I enter. Great parody here, and the Sham-Wow is an overpriced piece of crap. You can buy a package of Rags in a Box and a microfiber chamois for about the price of ordering a Sham-Wow and all that comes with it plus shipping and handling over an infomercial. 5s. (just started listening to Dschinghis Khan after I found a couple of their CDs in the dumpster, they're GREAT).

Thanks to Step-Chan, Christie, Matthias, Johnathan S, SamuraiMaster, and Andria. I thought this was pretty good for a comeback parody.

(SOTM) An interesting song to parody, but I'm afraid the subject just flew over my head. I rarely watch TV anymore, I never pay attention to the ads anyway, and I haven't heard of this particular meme. Paced well, and it did have some funny bits, so I think it's worth 555 even though I have little idea what it's on about.

Didn't this dude get arrested??? Ah--not a bad parody Blaze, wasn't a favorite, but this topic was overdue, so great job

You'll be saying "WOW!" every time you read this parody! It's like a lampoon, it's like a satire, it's like a spoof! A regular parody doesn't work wet, this works wet or dry! This is for your house, your office, your hotel room, your RV! The ShamWow parody holds 20 times its weight in liquid. Look at this, it just makes you laugh! Doesn't drip, doesn't make a mess! You wring it out, you wash it in the washing machine. Made on AmIRight, you know AmIRight always makes good stuff!
