The Lyrics

Well, it looks like many of us have a had visit from the "1"-derer, whoever that might be. It's always a bit annoying at first to check on your work and see a "1-1-1" when all the other scores are good ones. So it's annoying, but really it shouldn't be much more than that. I've been hit often enough now, I can handle it. Wish that my biggest problem in the world, you know? But I like to play, too. I figure I've posted about 75 parodies here and written more than that. The "1"-derer? I don't see any postings for him(or her) so I guess this person is not capable of putting one together. So he played his game, now I'll play mine. Enjoy the read, "Solitary Man".
My song had all "fives"
Til the time
that he found it
the "1" guy
don't know why

Then he came along
Pissed me off
Just annoyed me; it was true
I felt screwed

Don't know that I will
but I wish I could find me
The guy who gives "1"s
and his thinking behind it
Just what gives with you, man?
Do you have a plan?
You're a squirrel, "1" man

I think it's quite clear
That he's weird; just a small turd
rinky-dink
kind of fink

I guess it's his fun
Givin' "ones" to us author's
Goes along
Trashin' songs

We've all had our fill
But I doubt we can find him
So I'll take those "ones"
And just put it behind me
Don't care what's with this man
I don't give a damn
Do your thing, "1" man

He must need the thrill
If that's all, I don't mind it
If that makes his day
Hell, I won't sweat the small sh*t
Let him do what he can
Sacrifice my lamb
Do your thing, "1" man
I don't give a damn
No big thing, "1" man

beautiful.....the "1" guy obviously is called that because of his IQ AND sperm count

Ooo, alvin...low blow!

I really thought that this one's bashing of our songs would stop since we have no more top 10 for him to keep us off of. But, if it gives him a thrill, so what? I'll just count his vote and not sweat it, like you said, Paul. You did a really good job on this...5's (wonder if you will be 'hit'?)

Alvin - Thanks! Glad it resonated. Adagio - well, that's possible but my guess is "no", since by doing so he would prove my point here, plus it would invite me to write another. You know, I'm not seeking him out but I will respond on occasion. But we shall see...

People talk about "the one's guy" as if he's the boogieman. I'm sure it's many people that come and go who either A. Don't like the subject or parodies in general. B. Don't like us making fun of their favorite artist. C. Are like a disgruntled employee, upset because no one read their song. D Just want to exert what little power this world gives them. I still say as I always have, getting ones is like getting fifth place in a race. At least someone noticed.

Rick - for the most part I agree. I don't think every "1-1-1" score is the same person, but on somedays it may be. And the best thing to do probably is to shrug it off. But as much as it is NOT a big deal, I still like to poke back once in a while - I figure people that dish things out should expect to get some back now and then, especially if it looks like somebody is blanketing a number of people's work with them. Actually I used the "ones" yesterday to motivate me to write something today, and this was kind of a warm-up exercise to get started. My creative juices were a little low after the "Thumb" thing ended.
