The Lyrics

Karaoke, when sung by skilled singers, is joy to follow and to be participated. Unfortunately, many participants are not, making karaoke sheer torture.
I wanna be a karaoke princess
With enough attitude and a voice that is crude
a pungent karaoke princess
with perfume so smelling it gets windpipe a-swelling
Singing too loud
She can make the voice of crow proud

I wanna be a karaoke princess
With a dress full of bling and no skills how to sing
a pretty karaoke princess
who is all about make-up and whose voice will break up
Singing too low
She'll be quite embarrassing, you know

I wanna be a karaoke princess
With no sense of the rhythm and the notes coming with'em
a simple karaoke princess
who can't follow wording and the tune is a burden
squacking like a duck -
Is this just lack skills or bad luck?

I wanna be a karaoke princess
who will squeal and will sigh and will sing all too high
a skilless karaoke princess
who will meow like a cat and will squeak like a rat
No singing skills
but surely posessing voicing that kills

I wanna be a karaoke princess
Who does trampling and prancing and who thinks she is dancing
A clumsy karaoke princess
Holding microphone wrong and too difficult song -
Won't someone send me a princess who can sing?
Won't someone send me a princess who can sing?
Won't someone send me a princess who can sing?
Won't someone send me a princess who can sing?

555 for the parody, but I think you miss the point concerning karaoke. It's not so much how someone sings but overcoming singing in front of strangers. To take that risk. I live in California and there are plenty of karaoke clubs around. Never have been to one that booed a singer for lack of skill. In fact, very nervous people have been applauded because the light hit them and they tried. The only boos I've ever heard were for clowns that act like they have talent and who hog the spotlight. Those are the real offenders. Karaoke is for fun and families can participate. Maybe you are doing it at a bar. Can't speak for those folks.

When I was a teenager in the late eighties and early nineties, I used to frequent a local karaoke site and sing there to get free tickets for a night club whose entry fee was usually well beyond my normal budget. When me and my hubby got married, we lived for a while in a townhouse whose basement had a karaoke bar. Wednesday nights were intolerable; there was one certain alcoholized older lady who always had to sing "Polly Wolly Doodle" with extremely loud voice.

I agree that karaoke is (or at least ought to be) more about overcoming your social fears and being brave enough to sing in front of strangers. But sometimes it can be sheer torture.

Susanna, just noticed your OS title. Did you know that in America we have a term JAP than means Jewish American Princess? LOL!!!

There was a lady at a bar here in Kansas City who could actually sing. Never tried it myself. I would be tempted to use my own lyrics rather than the version on the screen. Which was scarier, singing in public, or jumping out of an airplane? Come to think of it, wouldn't it be interesting to have a site where some of our writers could post their vocals of their latest parody?

That would be fun. Robert Arndt could sing about a German machinegun, while belted out a song about cloning.

I can see it now, singing "I Only have Eyes for You" as "I Only have Eyes for a MG-42!!!"

Rob: Yes, I know - I did read Mad Magazine avidly in my youth ;-) The original song is a satire on itself about the stereotype of a shallow, materialistic, unfeminine, spoiled and vershtuped type of girl with lots of hang-ups. Mel Brooks's "Spaceballs" presents the Princess Vespa as a stereotypical "Druish Princess", a satire of the JAP.

Of course the opposite Susanna would be the stereotypical NJB or Nice Jewish Boy in America. This term is embraced by many as respectable, but others think it means the Jewish boy/man is a lifelong sissy!
