The Lyrics

Frank Zappa is probably the hardest artist that I ever attempted to parody... And I mean ever... Flo Rida and Eminem are nothing compared to this short 2 minute song...
Went clubbin' with sticks that glow
(You will only live once and that's all)
Took a jog without my clothes
(You will only live once and that's all)
Traded my fruit for cheesy nachos
(You will only live once and that's all)
The office has seen me doze (Boss yells "Wake the *bleep* up!")
Live a life of sleaze and waste my dough (Booze!)
(You will only live once and that's all)

Smoke the ganja, High...
(Hey there mon... Mon...)
There's no drama guys...
(Like Snooki's a ho) (A ho)
(Like Snooki's a ho) (A ho)
Open some bubbly in a limo-oh-oh...
(You will only live once and that's all)
When it's sunny tell work to get blown

Cause tomorrow we might be dead, YOLO (Whoo!!!)
Gobble ice cream down for breakfast, YOLO (Whoo!!!)
Go and hit the town... Paint it red, YOLO
Get in bar room fights, Get broken bones
Then get head (You will only live once)
Or let's go and skydive

Live life like you are on death row
Follow that motto "YOLO" bro
Who cares if you'll be sick and broke
Follow that motto "YOLO" bro

Zappa is tough. Can't imagine a song that approaches 'normal' in his tome. I like what you did, and the irony is not lost since Zappa never, according to most sources, did drugs.

I was looking at the whole Zappa parody catalogue, and find that there are only 35 entries, so I guess Zappa is tough. Although I didn't find "Montana" to be that difficult; in fact, it's kind of fun. But then again, seeing as I am second in number of Zappa parodies, I may have the Zappa knack. Perhaps I'm a Zap master ;-D

1-Bomber strikes again! I made sure to listen while reading because I thought the pacing was off, but it isn't. It's just very hard to read/sing this. I admire how you managed to sub real words onto to the doo-wop stuff. Due to the brevity, and the desperation you reported on this Artistry round, this is pretty random...could have been something a bit more thought provoking I think, if you had more time (whew, that was longer than the song, wasn't it?)

I'm not a Zappa expert (by any means) but this is my second favorite song of his (behind "Dancin' Fool"). Despite your worries, I thought you did a pretty solid job with pacing and it was pretty funny too.

(Artistry) Kudos for parodying the background stuff here, and for sticking to the intent of YOLO instead of what it's become in recent years (ie an excuse to drive while blind stinking drunk and generally be a complete moron). 555 cause YOVO (You Only Vote Once)!

Tons of stuff happens, not easy when working with Zappa's work, good job.

(Artistry) I found the title to be a little clunky. but you really only used it at the end, so it really didn't bother me all that much. Very random, but I like that in comparison to the topic. Good work. (P.s. I can't stand that word "YOLO" ugh! if i never hear it again, it will be too soon.)
