The Lyrics

Another take on the "American Idol" show. After watching for many years I can only conclude that the majority of people trying out are doing it just for the "experience" of doing it. They don't *really* think they can sing. Do they? ;-)
Tuned into the 'Bland Delusion'
Summon them and hear them 'singing'
Sing real nice and they'll pick you for their show
The song is sung, the notes start straying
Suddenly my head is pounding
Wish they'd kept their dream all to themselves!

But they're schooled by the radio, the iPod and the MP3s
They see the videos of how their life should be
But that's not every day reality

So if you stink they're likely to be refusin'
'Cause you failed to make the grade
Just remember that it's a competition
And no, you haven't been betrayed (we're not swayed)

[Instrumental, no singing!]

So don't you blink or likely they'll be excusin'
And you'll never have the fame
Just remember that you sing in seclusion
And in the shower's not the same

American I-dol auditions
Join them in their blind ambitions
Hope it doesn't leave a lasting scar

But every night I watch in wonder
They come out from rock they're under
To show the world their singing blunders
It's just too bizarre.....

Randy: Naw dawg, it wasn't good for me. Singing's not your thing man.

Kara: Uhh, it was.....interesting. You have a.....unique voice, but I'm afraid it's a no honey.

Simon: Absolutely horrible. Why are you having a normal conversation with him? This is a dairy farmer dressed as a woman!

Contestant: Um, can I try another song?

Another hit! I get the distinct impression that you find pop uninspired. ;D

I steer clear of "American Idol", as I'd never have the patience (or fortitude) to sit through an entire episode-- for the reasons you outline so well! :D

I know that I'll never make it to American Idol, even though I don't sing too bad! I'll probably be bashed by Simon and Kara. I can only sing in the shower, that's for sure! That would definitely be sung in Simon and/or Kara's POV! Great work and I rate this song 555!

Good take on a show that shows the bad singing to get a "freak show' kind of reaction and a watching
