The Lyrics

Being made to sing Karaoke can have repurcussions!!! (fished is a term relating to doing something last minute)
Should i sing "My Life"? Is that good strategy?
Brought in and i tried, No escape from this contest , see!
"We close our eyes", "Lucy in the skies" and "She",
Sinnita's"Toy Boy", I could sing "sympathy"
"Because I love you" lol, Stevie B, Little high, little low
Anything by the "Quo"? couldn't sing the "Platters" not me, not me

Tada!, room filled with man, Put a mike against this head
Start to snigger, my minds dead
Tada!, riff had just begun
But words have gone and flown up and away
Drama, ooh, Didn't mean to make you sigh!
Can i come back again and try tomorrow?
carry on, carry on as if nothing really happened!

Too fate, my song has gone,
Sends shivers down my spine, maybe if I could only mime!
Could fool, ev'rybody, I’ll have a go
Gotta breathe through my behind and face the truth
Mama, ooh, my end it is nigh
Some song I’ve fish-ed, I’ll be ok after all

With full committal sing libretto "Cosi Fan!"
Scare the room, Scare the room, seems to be the last hammer-blow
Crowd revolt like lightning, very, very fright'ning me
(Kill the fellow.) Kill the fellow. (Kill the fellow.) Kill the fellow, Kill the fellow they all blow!
And off i go.
I'm just a poor sod and nobody likes me
He's just a poor boy and he sings in wrong-key
Spare us this strife from this monstrosity
Easy song, cheesy though, will you let me doh!

Tis,thriller! No, we will not let you no (Let him though!)
Tis,thriller! We will not let you no (Let him though!)
Tis,thriller! We will not let you no (Let me though.)
Will not let you no (Let me though.)
Will not let you no
. Not Let me though. Ah
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

(Oh mama mia, mama mia.) Mama mia, let me go
Per-lease-my-buds has some Abba put aside for me, for me, for me

So you think you can dis me and spit in my eye
So you think you can hear me and leave me to cry
Oh, maybe, can't kar-a-ok-e , baby
Just gotta get out, just gotta get butt outta here

Now my lifes in tatters, Anyone can see
One-thing really matters
Don't sing silly kary-ok-eeeeee

I just make the fuse blow!

Good BoRap parody. I liked the "Tis Thriller!" lines - hard to figure out something for that part - 555

SOTM: This is why karaoke should not be allowed without a license.

Way to go getting this one of the Big 7 completed and having it about karaoke was just intense.

Sometimes I get that feeling whenever I hear some people tried to sing at the American Idol audition.

SOTM Your "Karaoke" gets "Fiveies"!!

Can't stand BoRap, most overrated OS of all time, glad you retired it!

SOTM: Very nice, one of the better BoRap parodies I've seen in awhile!

(SOTM) I dunno...other people are giving raves, but this just seem to work for me. Some of the lines seem out of place with the song, and others are cribbed directly from the OS. Maybe it's just me (the neighbours' kareoke sessions probably don't help...too loud and they suck)...I dunno. And why am I getting such a deja vu right now?

This song is rarely performed in laraoke clubs, and when it is it's almost always butchered. Good parody here, but the names in the first verse went largely over my head.
DJ Blaze - January 30, 2010 - Report this comment
Some pacing quibbles here and there, but that barely subtracted from a spectacular, crowd-pleasing effort on a tough song. 545
Jeff Reuben - January 30, 2010 - Report this comment
Great job on one of the big 7. I do agree with Conq's comment about keeping original OS lines...that can take away from it. But overall a good job.

Hmmm, I've never heard of any of those songs you mention in the beginning, interesting, even if I was thrown off.
