The Lyrics

they changed the words to my song ma,
they sent it to amiright
well they made me laugh but they made me cry
and they do it every night, ma,
they changed the words to my song

they wrote a different verse, ma
they wrote it all wrong
well they made it rhyme, and they write in time
and they ruined all my songs , ma
they changed the words to my song

phil alexander did a song , ma
and so did someone named Bill Tong
well there's pacholek, and the florios,
and that Malcolm's ruined songs, ma
they changed the words to my song

why do they change the titles too, ma?
and what is an S.T.G?
and some guy royce, with a rhyming voice
they all make fun of me, ma
they changed the words to my song

la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la

it hurts to read some of these things, ma,
they write of things I don't know
guns and drugs, and impropriety
they're silly and they know, ma
they changed the words to my song

At least you didnt parody that "Brand new key" song....God I hate Melanie lol...anyway, good job Malcolm, and thanks for the mention....and I know Royce is going to correct you too, but SHE's a gal, not a guy {Billy hides in corner as sexual harrasment police come looking again for him}
