The Lyrics

You know who you are.
I can see him, lyin' sack, in his shorts, I'd guess
In a room where he does what he'd never confess
Some clown keeps voting unfair
It's unkind, he keeps sneakng ones where fives should appear
Some clown has been on a tear
And I find he keeps sneaking ones where fives should appear

He's been looking for a life but, has failed, it seems
"Cause he don't have a name, pseudonym's all I've seen
Sometimes I think it's a shame
That he gets feelin' better when he's playin' this game
Sometimes I think it's a shame
That he gets feelin' better when he's playin' this game

If you click there on my name, in the author's list
You will find parodies I think you may have missed
Dumb clown, I really don't care
To my mind, you're a creep and I'll keep posting "em there
Sometimes I think it's a sin
That you can't find a better way to raise it again

I can see him being passed on the dating scene
"Cause he can't find a girl who likes "em dumb and mean
Sometimes I think it's a shame
That he gets feelin' better when he's playin' this game

Some clown has been on a tear
It's unkind, he keeps sneaking ones where fives should appear
Some clown keeps voting unfair
And I find he keeps sneaking ones where fives should appear
Sometimes I think it's a sin
That he can't find a better way to raise it again

It's been a while since I've heard that song. I used to listen to it on an old record of Gordon Lightfoot. I like your parody, but I don't really get it. P.S. Can you come check out some of my parodies? I'd really appreciate it. well, keep up the good work. Cya

Did not expect this to be a ones guy song. Good job!

Nice parody, but as long as people keep writing "tributes" to this person, the more (he'll) be inspired.

Gordon Lightfoot's stuff takes itself so seriously that it deserves every parody it gets! Great job.
