The Lyrics

a song done by him
results, pretty grim
and hey
i could not keep my laughs at bay
the whole crowd was stunned
some lost their meals
he wailed
he should have bailed

a trying solo from his reeds
performance was indeed bush league
his act was drowned drowned drowned drowned
by our screams
we...hate...you !
karaoke !
NO !

this was a crime
at least admission was free
to hear
his horrible shrieks
not right !...all wrong !
he murdered that song !
twas lame
tune was maimed

you know the real song was pretty slick
his version...was so...lunatic
our tummies churned churned churned churned
till we're sick
ooh...karaoke !
NO !

hellish !...PU !
the people said
pipe down !...way down !
keep it subdued
its clear we're hardly amused....dude

on that night..he sang the text
oh how his voice did crack
brayin' just like a mule
silly silly fool

you know the real song was pretty slick
his version...was so...lunatic
our tummies churned churned churned churned
till we're sick
ooh...scary karaoke !

Excellent. Reminds me of a program my partner is watching every weekend at the moment - X Factor auditions which she loves and I hate.

Nice job. Karaoke should be a Class 1 felony.

I could use a karakoe to sing song parodies. PS: If you sing "Feelings" to your girlfriend with one of those you will lose her - fer surre!

Holy Karaoke does this take me back - Yikes! This song by Heart hit the charts back around 1977 time frame. I had the entire album on cassette tape. I blasted it in my Mazda on my cassette player. I blasted it in my on base quarters and ticked off my neighbor constantly.

Karaoke was just getting started in Japan nback then. I got really ripped one night, back in my wild days and at a club call Don Quixote in the city of Tachikawa, I attempted to sing this Heart song in Karaoke. It sounded good to me and to most of the toasted Japanese folks or maybe they were just being good hosts and making with the polite to me, but the guys I worked with would not let me live that night down until wheels up time when I left the country.

My karaoke career was short and not so sweet. I could just see me in this parody. So you see it is about a parody writer on the site 'cept you didn't know it when you wrote it. I LOLed all the way through. Wish I'd had your version when I "sang" that night.

Some trivia - karaoke is a Jinglish word. "Kara" means empty in Japanese. "Oke" is Jinglish speak for our word Orchestra. Thus, karaoke translates into "Empty Orchestra".

Maybe I'll go to a karaoke bar and sing your parody there - NOT! High 5's - you made my day with this one.

I listened to Heart's music when I was a kid, but I never heard this song before. I played it on YouTube and it sounds pretty good. Anyways, Karaoke has always been popular in our country. I always love to sing in Karaoke bars and I always loved to get my own Karaoke set. My uncle (may he rest in peace) owned a Karaoke microphone that he ordered from the Philippines and used to come to our house to sing with my father and the rest of my family. He had a great voice. Well anyway, excellent parody! 555!
