The Lyrics

Forgive me if I'm misusing the word 'schlock' here, I heard it in a Linkara video and I didn't want to look up the meaning in case I was wrong and parody got flushed down the loo before I could even write it. And that's terrible.
I remember when I was young
Saw a movie that was great fun
Zombie gangs and ancient stones
Had an science nutter with a lab of his own
When I tried to Google what it was
Found that ev'ryone said it was B-grade schlock
I thought that was bad, I replied that it rocked
They responded "Look numbnuts, we like us some B-grade schlock"

Seems that B-grade schlock films are entertaining
When you have some time to fill
I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Oh Lordy Mama this film is shite
The actors must've done some lines
To be in this schlock film, I must be right

(La la la la la la)
(La la la la la)
(La la la la la)

When the years go by, people learn their craft
Movies like this aren't as good as in the past
They just stand out from the blockbuster flicks
Not so bad they're good, more like so bad they're shit
But they'll never kill the thrills I got
Watching all of the B-movie schlock
I don't know what that word means, no
I saw it on the web "That film's schlock, fo' sho'!"

Well, B-movie schlock films (is that redundant?)
Are great when there's time to fill
Oh when it comes to just wastin' time, nothin' tops 'em, nothin' will
Oh Lordy Mama this film is shite
Did any actor learn his lines?
I could watch these schlock films through the night

(La la la la la la)
(La la la la la)
(La la la la la)

It was better when I was young
Shitty movies were so much fun
Pointing out all of the flaws
Breaking physics, gravity and all of those laws
I admit that it was a big shock
When I found that critics wrote it off as schlock
Though the people on the web all said it rocked
In a way that can only be done by B-grade schlock

Yeah, B-movie schlock films (that sounds redundant)
Are sweet when there's time to fill
Oh it's so satisfying to see a film suck so hard it's brill*
Oh Lordy Mama this film is shite
You can see the strings - that's all right
I could watch these schlock films until I die

(La la la la la la)
(La la la la la)
(La la la la la)
(Repeat and fade)
*Short for 'brilliant', it's British slang. I know what you're thinking, me? Using British slang? INCONCEIVABLE.

LOVED all those old horror movies, AND this parody!

That's what movies today look like.

(Artistry) One of my favs from this month!!!

"Not so bad they're good, more like so bad they're sh*t" was a fantastic line! I really liked this one Conqueror especially because you broadened your horizons with this one.

(Artistry) Excellent, and movies have sucked since the mid-90s. The last live-action Star Wars film, Dodgeball, Gran Torino and Dukes of Hazzard are some of the relatively rare exceptions.

I liked how you kept consistency throughout, like subbing "Susie" with "movie". Little shaky on the choruses, but it's one of the better observational parodies I've read of yours.

(Artistry) I thought Schlock was Captain Kirk's sidekick. Nice job -- really liked "Breaking physics, gravity and all of those laws".
Jeff Reuben - May 18, 2010 - Report this comment
I liked this as well. You get a couple good movies and a bunch of retreads from the past we've already seen. Well done.

Great

Good idea--the rhyme scheme was not quite there though buddy, you missed quiet a few of them actually which threw it off for me, but still good job taking on a tough Elton Song (If there is such a thing)

This was freaking AWESOME! A song after my own heart!

SOTM: I love the idea, but sadly, I've listened to the OS maybe once before this so it took me a few listens to get it right. Not your fault, nice work either way!

Not bad at all, these B-movies deserve to be on MST3K. 555 for the good effort.
