The Lyrics

Not sure about the decade for the original song here, but I'm sure everyONE can relate to the topic--every GUY submitting a song has probably felt this way sometimes. :-)
You're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
No use telling me now, you're voting only ones

I've got two great rhymes here to carry me
Two sharp eyes to check while I write
Two cute puns, my pacing's tight
Two good friends who can vote (well, they might!)
For all this work, only ones?

You're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
Don't be needling me now—you're voting only ones

These triple-one votes, they bore me
Too many treated that way
Thousands of songs we've spoofed today
Millions of laughs that just won't quit
For all this work, only ones?

Yes, you're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
No use telling me now, you're voting only ones

Taken for granted, you look so snide:
All that you do is disgrace us, run and hide.
B***hy message-bashing all can see
Hidden hatred for each parody
Though the parody brings us screams,
Hundreds of laughs sure to last
Trash our songs and we'll hate you fast
For all your votes—only ones!

You're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
Don't be needling me now—you're voting only ones

You're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
No use telling me now, you're voting only ones

You're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
No use telling me now, you're voting only ones

You're voting only ones
You're voting only ones
P.S. "Needling" should be sung as two syllables to fit the pacing of the original.

There's an old joke that applies to Ones Guy: Is that vote representative of your IQ or your d*ck size?

DKTOS, but good read, Ingeborg. 3 5's

Thanks, guys--this was based on my second OS choice actually; my mom has always been a big James Taylor fan, so the chorus was stuck in my head (and seemed like a natural for a Ones Guy roast).
