The Lyrics

Reality bites! How is it that I could know about this man when I don't even watch the damn show... or Extra!Extra!... or ET!... or any of that stuff? HOW CAN THAT BE? ARRRRGH! :-)
Hung's song blew -- everybody knows it...
Key's wrong, too -- wonder why he chose it...?
Idol? Not!
The man has got
no business in 'show'...
(I wouldn't be surprised if soon I'm hearin' him...
on the radio...
on the radio...)

Hung's song blew -- no use in pretending...
Long song, too -- it was never-ending!
Funny thing, is
he can't sing,
but now the man is a star!
When TV's your reality, then even cloistered nuns
will find out who you are...

I was gonna give you fives on the title alone, but you earned it anyway! At the rate he's going, the guy's name should be changed to William Shot!

Don't know the original, but yes, this deserves 5s just on the title.

Kinda like Pacholek said, the initial concept begins at five and delivers on its potential and expectations. Enjoyable piece.

I don't follow American Idol either, but I heard Paul Gambuccini on BBC Radio 2 play William Hung's attempt at 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' and he had to take it off because it was so terrible! Hung makes Gareth Gates (on the UK Pop Idol) seem like Kurt Cobain.

Well done, Leo. I think you got as much truth and humor into two short verses as possible.

Great parody and humorous title, but too short for a vote in the ABCs. 5-5-5

(ABCs) The song was hilairious and very creative, but there were others like that in ABCs that were longer, so they get the push. You get 5s though

Hey, it's the only "H" I've got. Thanks.

What everyone else said. Great title, great execution.

(ABC) I really liked this a lot, but it should have been longer. In the OS, the 'funny thing' verse repeats after the intro music. 4-5-5.

In answer to your question at the beginning: Osmosis sucks, eh? :-D

I bought Hung's album. There, I admitted it =)

Thanks guys. Generally if a song repeats and isn't followed by new material, I don't bother just re-typing verses. I guess I could just type "repeat verse and fade" or something... If anyone wants to ding me points for pacing, that's ok...
