The Lyrics

This is one of my simplist songs, it of course is recorded and you can hear or download it too. . .Hear Yahoo! free
Yahoo!
It's the Best Search Engine
Yahoo!
It's the Best Search Engine.

Search the Internet C'mon
Let's Search The Net
C'mon Now

We Could Just Play Chess C'mon
Let's Play Some Games

There's a Website That's Developed Here
It's got More features than any of it's peers
So check the weather and your email too
And after that we'll meet up in the Chat Room
C'mon now

The U.S.A., Let's turn on our I.M. and have a good time
In the U.K., You can stay up late with music online

It's time to come together
In your profile, said your name was Heather
Even in the Library C'mon

Yahoo!
It's the Best Search Engine
Yahoo!
It's the Best Search Engine

Join a group or two C'mon
About your Pets
C'mon now

Post a New Website
With PHP

We're gonna find a new friend tonight
of any race
It's alright

We could check the Blues score tonight
It's that tight
Day or night
Baby

Even do your shopping, the site
I don't mind
It's so fly

We could find an old friend to fight
we just might
It's out of sight

Search the internet, c'mon

We could all play chess, c'mon

Let's make some new friends, c'mon

Now this song is done, thank God!!!!
You'd be surprised how hard it is to parody a short song without being repetitive, of course all my songs are available for free listen and/or download at My Soundclick.com Page.

I wish I could sing as well as you do... 'Course, being a Turtle, I wish I could sing at all.... I'd give you a Googol of Fives, but we're only allowed to give you three of them.

Re your postscript: With your obvious creativity, it'll get easier with practice... here's an example of what can be done with the short 'n simple "Deck the Halls": ht*tp://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/traditional1078.shtml. And AmIRight's own Phil Alexander will help ya fix up "it's peers" here: ht*tp://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/mariasoundofmusic0.shtml.
You have a lot of talent, Bro. Keep 'em comin'!

Hey, great parody of a great early 80s song, Dave. 5's
Below Average Dave - December 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Thank you very much Tommy the Turtle--singing is a passion-I love to sing, by writing parodies I get to sing my favorite songs and write (my other passion) at the same time. I love Phil's apostrophe song, very creative and accurate. . .I need to take more time when I type my parodies out as to not misuse them. I could sing all day if given the opportunity, I really get a great deal of enjoyment out of performing my work after writing it, not to mention it helps me with pacing. . .if it's not paced, I can't sing it. . . dioa, thank you for your assessment, This song was very fun to do, and Kool & the Gang song is fun--not always easy--but fun.

Great work Dave! This is one of your better recordings (that I've heard). I didn't realize TOS was this short, but given my disdain for disco, I'm glad it is. Funny stuff. 5s.

Thank you Red Ant and AFW. . . Red Ant, this song is one of the one's I've been re-recording, some of my re-recorded ones (eventually all 100 something of my original parodies will be) are being recorded a little differently than the first set. . . those 14 will be redone slowly overtime as they are still doing very well in popularity, Wind Beneath My Butt for example was downloaded by 6 different people yesterday, as long as it is still in the limelight so to speak, I don't want to mess with it's statistics, but I hope to have them all sound somewhat like this soon. . .I'm working on getting them all up, there's just so many:)

This one has been re-recorded, still in the same location it was before though, on 1/11/2007

"It's best search engine" Are you serious? Oh ok.
Agrimorfee - August 07, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC) I know it's early to comment, but for this early pick of your catalog, it was sheer genius to make the "Yahoo!" portion of the song the title, rather than worry about the title sub itself. You've inserted more humor in your work since then, but this definitely shows where you;ve been.
Matthias - August 10, 2008 - Report this comment
I agree with Agrimorfee on this one, I can tell this was one of your earlier works for sure, but I can't help but to point out the sheer genius of that. Since that actually is more prominant in the song than the title itself.

Congrats for the only entry in this comp that does not start with a form of the word "You". I like the OS of "Kool" and I like how this Yahoo parody followed this OS. Great job of word-smithing here. But I must agree with a comment above that questions whether Yahoo is the best search engine - but no sweat - it works for the parody and has no bearing on its ability to be a great write. Well done.
bobpiecheese - August 18, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC4Y) I rarely, if ever, use any kind of search engine any more. That being said, despite the over-simpicity of the OS, I'm surprised the parody wasn't in turn repetitive, though the last line waas a bit out of place.

Great stuff. It's funny because it's true, Yahoo is one of the best in the world.
