The Lyrics

No, this is not about the sandwich shop chain Jersey Mike's, asking you if you want your sandwich "Mike's Way." Although I do go there a lot. This is a different Jersey Mike, with his 2,000th Amiright parody. If you were expecting me to do it to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," you will find a slight reference to that song here.
(instrumental opening)

And now
the time is here.
And so I face
parody two thousand.
My friends
I'll say it clear.
I'll state my case
with song that's rousin'.
I've lived
a life that's full.
I've walked the line
in every hike way.
And more
with all these songs
I did it Mike's way.

Regrets?
I've had a bunch.
You're hoping that
none will I mention.
I wrote
about my lunch
when I was young
and now with pension.
I planned
some best-laid plans
that fell apart
on Park-and-Pike-way.
And more
with all these songs
I did it Mike's way.

Yes, there were times
I'm sure you knew
that I guessed wrong
which States go Blue.
But through it all
beyond all doubt
Dubya and Trump
they headed out.
I faced their gall
and I stood tall
and did it Mike's way.

I've loved
some famous chicks
all from afar.
My share of losing.
I've laughed
at sports teams' tricks.
Some jumps for joy.
Some ego bruising.
To think
I wrote all that
and may I say
sometimes in psych way.
That's how it's gone.
Legend lives on.
I did it Mike's way.

For what is a man?
What has he got?
All of this time?
Wasted a lot.
I've said some things
I truly feel.
Some fantasies.
But some were real.
And here I stand:
I wrote two grand
and did it Mike's way.

Yes, here I stand:
I wrote two grand...

and did it
Mike's...
way!
Whew! Whew! Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. 'Til we meet you again, may God bless you. Adios.

Wildcard, a parody is a comical version of an original song.

I was wondering what you would do for 2000. A good choice for a milestone event. Who was passing out the 111 ratings? I didn't catch the Edmund Fitzgerald reference. Maybe the "waste of time"? I've certainly wasted a few OS on the subject. Congratulations. Looking forward to 3000.
