The Lyrics

The inspiration for this one hit at just the right time - my 1111th parody, about 1s

This is the original song, if you've not heard it before, please listen to it on its own a couple of times before reading this - it's lyrically quite stunning.

(pacing note: it's a tricky song to sing through, but with one exception it works.. that exception is having to sing "pseudonymously" with three syllables.. if I could match Jake's guitar, I'd record this but it's a bit tricky)
I love posting parodies here at amiright
On the whole world wide web it is my favourite site
One for sore eyes
Also I love misheard lyrics, all the mondegreens
And the puns! the puns! the puns! so tortuous
Always groanworthy

Please understand I respect and admire the authors here
But there's a snake in the grass who does nothing to endear
Himself to me,
The spiteful, petty, vengeful, nasty, cowardly hateful scum
Who'll vote one again, one again, one again, one again, one again, one again, one.


I wrote a new good'un with wonderful rhymes and quips
And some great substitutions. I'm certain they'll eclipse
My former output
Only when I spotted an update and I went to see some more
And I found the title of my song
And clicked on the link and I saw
Someone voted one again, one again, one again within the time
It took to refresh one single web page, that's why I'm
Thinking suspiciously
It's only one person who's clearing their cookies and voting ones again
It's maniac behaviour, so I'm not convinced he's sane


The comments he posts often reinforce this view
He may well have been on drugs or drinking quite a few
He's rarely rational
I wouldn't pit my wits against his: it would be too unfair
His IQ measures negative, his intelligence isn't there

Clicking on one again, one again, one and again and again.
Then he is writing, inciting with biting poison pen
And posting pseudonymously
He will never stop typing ridiculous, snide, malevolent shit
It comes across as moronic - with ten times the brains he would be a half-wit

He also talks about subjects he doesn't understand
If it be Communism, Satanism, and,
Well,
Pretty much anything
Not even noticing ignorance is totally complete
The way it shows the Dunning-Kruger effect is especially neat
Then he votes one again, one again, one again one and I must
Assume that he has gone and noticed that he's just
Been humiliated
But I don't feel hard done by from his attempted antipathy
I browse across amiright, and realize that it's not only me


So many parodies here displaying such lyrical art
About God or dating, politics or farts
The subject's irrelevant
He will show up spouting his bollocks at people he doesn't like
On a Bates Motel parody, he'll show that he's totally psych-
O

Voting one again, one again, one again even more.
There's a chip on his shoulder forcing him to score
More ones than FF in hex
"Isn't he odd," I cried one day, "And really rather dumb
Because for recreation he appears to find this fun"

Well, I reckon before I look at this, I know
He'll already have voted ones on it below
And commented brainlessly
Wittering random insults trying in vain to cause affront
There's such a pillock here, a complete and cutter unt
He will vote one again, one again, one again, one, down there
Will it worry him that I don't really care
About his inanity
There's a rancorous, mean, splenetic, angry, vicious Hun
Who'll vote one again, one again, one again, one again,
And again, and again, and again, and again
He will vote one again, one again, one again, one again, one again, one again, one.

...security code "GUY".. so that's one guy visited already :)

555 - I couldn't have said it better! Sad that nobody can figure out how to solve the problem.

I have to admit, I did see the first 1-vote go on and think "QED".. and the spiteful, petty, vengeful, nasty, cowardly hateful scum they've just proved themselves to be are still too cowardly even to make a pseudonymous comment.

First of all, never heard of Jake Thackray, but I'm gonna have to check out more of his stuff because this one was great. Parodying such a complicated, funny song is no doubt very challenging but you were more than up to the task.

Hi Claude - yes, Thackray was unique, I don't know anyone who has come close to writing the way he did.. though there are some fairly weird ones in there, too. My favourites include Sister Josephine, The Bantam Cock, The Last Will and Testament of Jake Thackray, The Castleford Ladies Magical Circle. I'm sure there's more..
