The Lyrics

Here at Project Sisyphus, we just don't feel right if we haven't annoyed Dennis DeYoung in a while.
Babe I’m needin’
a little bit of fame
and notoriety
I’d sit naked
in Times Square eating worms
to be on TV

But I don’t think I can dance, and
“America’s Got Talent” said I don’t
So I found someone who puts folks on the air
that even Oprah won’t

You know on YouTube
good taste and network censors simply can’t prevent
you singing “Rent”
And here on YouTube
everyone can watch your colonoscopy
An eternity
of this poo
is here on YouTube

You know on YouTube
no one really cares if you break copyright law
or remove your bra
Because on YouTube
a B-cup chest looks like a double Matterhorn
and softcore porn
sure gets views
Here on YouTube

High-school theater
Skateboard stunts gone wrong
Gerbils eating lox
Drunken frat guys
Old episodes of “Cheers”
It’s even worse than FOX

Our high threshold of boredom
means anyone can join this scene
Who’d believe I got fifty thousand hits
on just an empty screen

I'll have to check the FuMP to see if you threw together a video for this, a "Worst Of YouTube" tribute :) Funny song, glad to see it over here.

Great job here, Bob and Project Sisyphus! I've heard your recordings on Dr. Demento and they're excellent, and it's great to see you back here on AmIRight! 5s all the way.

Thanks, Jeff and Andria! Jeff, you are WAY ahead of us, but yes, that is the evil plan exactly:)

DKTOS, but a good read. :) I have a similar subject-matter idea for one of my parodies.
Jonathan S. - June 19, 2009 - Report this comment
Just to be clear, I meant similar to the part about the cheesy/bad stuff (like the "High-school theater/Skateboard stunts gone wrong"). Just didn't want my previous comment to be misinerpreted.
