The Lyrics

DKTOS? Been living in a cave all your life?
If you're certain and sure
You've got lyrics down cold
Just try rhyming with "Stairway to Heaven"
If you try it you'll know
That the word count is low
Matching "stairway" and "heaven" is a chore
Ooh, ooh, if you're rhyming with "Stairway to Heaven"

So I try to recall
All the rhymes that are pure
And that don't have some obsolete meaning
Then I grab a rhyme book
For the help it'll bring
Then find there's not much help that it's giving

Ooh it makes me wonder
Ooh what a blunder

Just a couple words fit
If you haven't yet guessed
So my hopes of a phrase match are leaving
Maybe "seven" is key
Or "eleven" will be
Are those my only hopes - I'll keep looking

Ooh it makes me wonder
Ooh did I make a blunder

I hear whispers that soon
I'll abandon this tune
Then I'll pick something new within reason
But I try to go on
To finish this song
Even if I'll abandon it after

I strain the muscle in my head - d'oh!
Feeling alarmed now
I need some caffeine or a machine -
Yes, some kind of robot that makes rhymes
But that's a dream, son
There's still time to change the song I'm on

And get out from under

This effort's numbing my frontal lobe
My thinking is slow
The situation's looking quite grim
Dear Jesus, don't you know this song blows
The way it flows
The rhyming dies and then starts again

It's almost like a secret code
This monster hit of rock and roll
I need some charts like Ross Perot
To diagram the way it goes
And make the rhyming scheme unfold
But though I found it very hard
The answer came to me at last
When looking back through all my scrawls
I've chosen this one as my goal:

Tiger's driving on fairway eleven

Rex - Interesting ending. I am no stranger to doing parody on this OS. I have several under my belt. About your ending the very 1st time I did this OS I called the parody "Fairway On Seven", I can well appreciate the great job you did on writing this. It certainly makes a lot more sense than the OS and it mimics the OS to a Tee. Quite an enjoyable read from top to bottom. Flow and pacing spot on. You sir, can write parody. High fives!

Great stuff, Rex! Last line? Priceless!

Great stuff here Rex. A trip down memory lane for a lot of parodist who tried to parody this song or any other Epic like this. There were a few good lines, not many of them were outstandingly hilarious, but a few references like "I need some charts like Ross Perot" and the last line was cute as well.

(Artitrsy) Best self-referential writing I can recall. LMAO with tears in my eyes. Made my day, Rex!

(Artistry) Epic! This is basically why I chickened out and called my S2H parody "Insane Asylum". Pacing was dead one, lots of great lines, basically the best parody-about-writing-parodies I've ever read! 555 for you, sir!

It was well written, have to admit personally that I don't feel a perfect rhyme to Stairway to Heaven is necessary because in the OS it's really not part of the rhyme scheme, still a funny take on writing. . .5s

I love meta parodies. Favorite lines were "The rhyming dies and then starts again" and "I need some charts like Ross Perot". Title subs for this OS are a bastard and so is the really, REALLY stretched AABCCB rhyme scheme, and it's long, which makes it like tWotEF (and why I've done neither =)). Good work here.
