The Lyrics

You may have noticed that some hack recently decided to swamp this board with multiple daily submissions about the same subject - some TV broadcast from nearly 70 years ago. CML asked him to dial it back so new viewers or wanna-be contributors wouldn't be put off, but no. He just asked someone else to do the daily bombings instead. This is for those two.
There’s an a-ttention whore who has made it his goal
to make sure that our site is a dead end
And as everyone knows, everything he’s composed
shows the signs of a hackneyed no-brainer

Ooh, ooh, and he’s turning this into a dead end

As for wit, bugger all, yet this unskilled poseur
has an ego you’d call overweening
He writes gobbledygook about one stupid thing
Any creativity’s, at best, hidden

Oooh, it’s a bummer
Oooh, can’t get dumber

There’s a feeling I get when I see that this pest
is continually oxygen thieving
His ersatz crap demeans those who write parodies
and you wouldn’t be blamed for upchucking

Oooh, it makes me wonder
Oooh, will he drive us under?

When this poor board is strewn with his tedious tunes
I keep hoping I’ll see some deletions
Now he’s passed the torch on, a substitute spawned
who’s another junk parody crafter

Oh-oh-oh-oh-whoa

Here’s my rebuttal to your crap show, ya worthless lowbrow
A public way I can vent my spleen
This stupid broadcast you’re obsessed with? Guess what, it’s long gone
That sound you hear’s a collective yawn

Still, it makes me shudder
Oh, whoa

You get down-thumbing, as in low votes, or even no votes
and yet you post the same crap again
Your stuff’s been garbage from the get-go, and did you know
I could outwrite you just by breaking wind

So as you’re prepping to unload
whatever’s in your dorsal hole
I’d say it’s more than apropos
to tell yourself “Let this one go”
‘cuz all you offer’s fool’s gold
You and your muppet are not bards
You’re hacks, and at that, unsurpassed
Am I the only one whose goal’s
to free this site of dreary trolls?

‘Cuz I don’t want it to be a dead end

I see only lousy parodies here. and don't know if I want to join if I did finely get a good idea

There is nothing to "join" (although it would be better to start an account with simply just an email address). There are hundreds of excellent parodies here, the problem is that many of the best authors have drifted away or are deceased. Pick a few of the 20 or so people from this array http://www.amiright.com/parody/authors/ (even I have a few good ones :)--but I don't recommend Tokuso Sentai Blessranger as a GREAT example). I hope you can help make this site better than it is now.

I don't know what you know. I cant read your mind

Girl scout, I can only endorse what Agrimorfee has said. There is a treasure trove of fantastic parodies on this site - it is hard for us to say exactly what you should look at because it could be argued our views are biased! Agri's suggestion of looking within the top 20 Author's list is sound advice (also his suggestion to sidestep Tokuso). So, what makes a good parody? As a general suggestion, if you can take a song, and re-write it with a different idea, or a variation on the theme of the OS (original song). Keeping the rhyme structure is always a good thing but not always easy to do. Importantly, retaining the same syllable count for each line - this makes the parody easy to read if you are singing along to the OS - even if that is in your mind). A good dose of humour never goes astray either. If you can find parodies that contain all of those things, then you are almost certainly reading a good one. And that top 20 author's list (and there are some outstanding parody writers outside the top 20) contains plenty of great parodies.

What do you mean by "here" girl scout. The parodies that you're currently seeing? Because we have a gigantic archive of 97K parodies and many thousands of them are as good as anything Weird Al did. And what sort of humor do you like? If you want some songs that appeal to female sensibility, check out Arwen, who I think is the best female parodist, by far. She can be found in the Author index, about 50 names down with .240 "Malcolms" (240 submissions)

yes by here I mean what I can easily find now. Forget it, mama told me not to come. She said parodies are only dumb.

Well, my momna said something similar about parodies .... SHE SAID .. They arent the way to have fun, SONNY!! But I didnt take her advice, obviously ..... There you go; do a parody about how "Momma Told You" that parodies suck. Seriously could be funny
