The Lyrics

I'm at badave.com
At times I'm an @$$hole
but you believe ev'rything-I'm full of bull
I think that you know it too
I lie to protect me

cause when you sing-but have no range
I tell you-ya sound just fine
While both my ear drums cry

Raccoon eyes are on your face
Your left cheek is big-ger than your right
and I can't stand your over-bite
I say beautiful-yeah right

and you know I stray ev'ry day
Cause next to you babe, I never lay
'cause you smell all the time

I'm telling you tonight
that I'm with you because you knew my role
doing some-thing I shouldn't boo
You hold it over me

but now I wish that I could exchange
This is black mail, and that's a crime
Those pics of my behind

Well I don't know what has come over me
My vows-I said I'd stay with you
But babe here goes, I was full of bull

I don't want another Dave tirade so I'll just say "Well done".

Matt. . .if that's how you feel we need to talk, because I don't want you to feel like you can't be honest on my parodies, I know what you are referring to. . .that response was because your comment on that parody was taken to a personal level of where my heart is when I'm writing, and that you went into 'repeating' topics again, which has always been a sour spot between us. . .you know that's not how I respond to every criticism from personal experience. . .I can't talk right this instant because I'm heading to work (and you are probably asleep) but we need to talk,

On a side not, that sounds like a My Chemical Romance parody (The Dave Tirade)

(Geez guys! I will stay out of this...) Anyway, it seems like you went out of your way to avoid a long, boring Lightfoot tune here, Dave, but you did well with it, putting a twist on the old "I hate you because" parody topic, with the narrator admitting he ain't no prize, either.

Already by the first verse I felt that the tone of the parody didn't match the tone of the music, that's often a part of the pacing for me (or rather, it is when it's off like this) so I'll just say that your muse and my ears wasn't in tune on this one. Then again I think I can see from the first comment that it was written for this contest, so I guess maybe you just winged it to get one in on time.

To avoid any misunderstandings: "from the DATE OF THE first comment..."

What were you doing that resulted in blackmail-worthy pics of your behind? Wait -- don't answer that, I don't want to know. Funny concept.

It was written for this contest. Often a written work doesn't translate well until its recorded. While I have sang this to vouch for pacing, I know that many of my parodies don't sound right to individuals until they are recorded and people see where I'm coming from, so I totally understand what you are saying, thank you for your honesty. . .if it gets recorded (no guarantee it will be) any pacing mishaps are caught there, and non pacing issues that look like they would be are smoothed out.

(Artistry) Definitely an interesting idea, if only it were applied to a longer song. Still a very good parody, 555!
Blaydeman - July 04, 2011 - Report this comment
(Artistry) I liked the idea, but like Peter, I felt the tonality of the lyrics and the backing instrumental didn't match up well, but like you said, a recorded version could clear those misconceptions. Overall I think you really wanted to avoid TWOTEF, and this OS is a little too short for you to strut your stuff. Overall good though.

This guy sounds like one of the dudes from Jersey Shore...if...you know...jersey was in Canada...but I'm with Rex- what'd you get caught doing with your behind?
