The Lyrics

Michael Jackson (Hands Across the Children)
2003 Michael W. McVey

We're so sorry Michael Jackson
We're so sorry, but you have to go to jail
We're so sorry Michael Jackson
But there's no one left at home
And you'll need 3 million bail
We're so sorry but you won't see your kids today
We're so sorry Michael Jackson
Because you mess with children, we did our jobs today.

We're so sorry Michael Jackson
But you aren't going to see your kids today
We're so sorry Michael Jackson
But when children stay at your home, you're so easily carried away

Hand across the children (children)
Heads across the kids
Hand across the children (children)
Heads across the kids
The sheriff got calls from them
Your daughter gave birth even though she's only 10
I had other complaints, that you did more than sing lullabies
I really don't want to listen to your lies

Hand across the children (children)
Heads across the kids
Hand across the children (children)
Heads across the kids

You're a dirty old man, get outta town(get outta town)
Should keep your hands to yourself
You're a pedophile
You're a dirty old man, get outta town(get outta town)
Get your ass out of this town
Dirty old Jacko, get out of town!

Hand across the children (children)
Heads across the kids
Hand across the children (children)
Heads across the kids
No, no, no, no, no, no,
No, no, no, no, no....
2003 Michael W. McVey

Note to all: I was in a bit too much of a hurry with this one. The chorus is supposed to be: "Hands across the children (children), hands across the kids" (not heads, although that's funny too!!!) The correct version is posted in the Spoofs and Parodies Yahoo Group whose link is under the copyright notation.

You can always resubmit it with the corrections, and I'll remove this version later. This was one of the most viewed parodies today according to something I'm working on behind the scenes, about 40 people saw it on the front page of the site and checked it out. Though no one commented, and only two people voted. I wonder why people aren't voting?

I didn't know you could submit corrections. If it is allowed, the correct version is on it's way :). I had just gotten back from a 600-mile all-night drive from New Mexico, and I did that parody before crashing out. Normally I'm picky about grammar, but I didn't want to miss a day if I could avoid it and I knew you usually updated the site around 8 a.m. my time. Hopefully some of the 40 will come back and vote. -- MM

Ooow - I hope it's the cheezy counter that Chuck is working on. Any hints Chuck or was this all the hint we get?

I'll wait for comment and vote when this gets reposted tomorrow.

Michael: I sometimes update before 8AM, sometimes after. Today I was up at 4 AM due to my cold, so I updated then, yesterday I was up at 11 AM due to my cold, so that was when I updated. If you did indeed resubmit this already (I can't remember if I saw it this morning) then send me an email and I'll remove this one.

Guy: Hint is below the submit comments part of this page. It goes live January 1st (numbers will be reset, better look, explanations, etc). Hits will only appear on pages that have had more than one hit in a day. I'll post a more formal message on the messageboard tomorrow (31st).

Neat Chuck. And thanks. This will surely give us some more clues on how we are doing.
Michael McVey - December 30, 2003 - Report this comment
Yes, the corrected version has been posted. Thanks :) -- MM

One suggestion about the counter, though. I think it is a very good idea, but have you considered setting it up so it will not register repeated views by the same person? For example, those of us who go back to our own parodies to view the ratings and comments. Some counters have that "smart" feature, others do not. -- MM
ChuckyG - December 30, 2003 - Report this comment
No, if you hit your own parody two hundred times a day, it will add 200 views to your total. I could filter by IP address, but since every AOL user shows up as the same IP, you'd be cutting a huge number of views down if you did that. It's not going to be used for anything (like ranking parodies by how often their viewed), and it's unlikely many people will check out a parody muiltiple times except for the original author (or people following up on comments), so it shouldn't be too radically off. It also will only be updated once a day (so that I don't waste a lot of server power trying track every hit a parody gets). These things will be explained in full when I officially launch it Thursday. I'll remove this parody later today (once I post a message on the messageboard about the counter) so people will know more

I really like this feature...I can see where it will come in very handy. Thanks CG

ChuckyG - What ever happened to the cheesy counter?
Claude Prez - January 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Very funny
ChuckyG - January 07, 2004 - Report this comment
the hit counter thing appears to be messed up still... it's hard to test scripts that are only scheduled to run once a day. I believe there's a file permissions error of some sort.
