The Lyrics

Written as a challenge.
Heard of a bar filled with leather-clad bikers
happy and ready to dance
Heard those commotions, down in the restroom
a place where nobody goes
The sound of soap dropping, off in the restroom
I'm getting sick of it now
Life in a brokeback, life at the gay bar
I have vandalized that bar

It has gay dancing, they enjoy techno
They're always fooling around
It has gay dancing, and some anal probe
They spend all the time they have

Transmit STDs, to the other side
hope for a cure one day
They no condoms, enjoys crystal meth
don't even know their confused
High on LSD, bongs are smoking
everyone's ready to leave
They sleep in the night club, They work in the primetime
They will never leave the bar

It has gay dancing, they enjoy techno
They're always fooling around
This ain't no fight club, it's H. O. M. O.
They spend all the time they have

Heard about Sodom? Heard about Lesbo?
Heard about Gomorrah?
I oughta know not to go in there at night
somebody might " greet " you in there
I got a weapon, AK-47
to fend off couple of gays
But I ain't got no grenades
ain't got no daggers
ain't got no Elton John records

Why watching 'The View'? Why get a night job?
Won't life be the same again?
Can't find a taxi, can't get a ride home
I can't do nothing right now
It has gay dancing, they enjoy techno
They're always fooling around
I am a straight man, I won't dance with them
They spend all the time they have

Ate soylent green, then puked it back out
It blended in with the rug
Just got invited, to Blue Oyster bar
I wonder what's inside
They dress like bikers, they dress in leathers
with some jackets and some vests
They have came here to hang so many times now
don't know why they love it!
It makes me shiver, what the hell is that?
they make a scary gay team
Just got exhausted, I'll just take a nap
I woke up and my butt hurts
Got yeast infection, limped out of the bar
but not after the tango
Once a new day starts, I'll be movin' out
whenever I think is best
Ate all my cookbooks, what good are cookbooks?
They won't help me forget
My butt is hurtin', burns like a dickin
the burning keeps me awake
Try to stay alert, in case it happens
don't want to catch no STDs
Try to be careful, just don't fall asleep
I better watch out for them
Tell me what you think...if it makes it.

Unfunny homophobia.

I'm sorry Max, but this is totally ignorant to truthful accounts of homosexuality. The STD line was actually very offensive to everyone, gay or not. . .I can't say there are any redeeming qualities in this parody.

Well B.A.D. I don't exactly agree with the content of this parody, you have to admire Max's courage for submitting this.
Ann Hammond - April 16, 2007 - Report this comment
You gave your challenge a chance. It just didn't turn out well this time.
Max Power - April 16, 2007 - Report this comment
Not my best work I can tell you that.

Max, I hold no ill will--I don't--but being someone who is a strong advocate for diversity. . .and a strong advocate against stereotypes, it's a parody that, well, I won't harp. . .anyway, I hope my opinion of this doesn't affect your view on my work as I will not judge unrelated work on this parody of yours. . .and to Jason, it did take some courage to submit this, but it is also a very misguiding parody, that hints that STD's are a 'gay' thing, and the STD in which this referrs to was found to have originated in monkeys. . .regardless I won't go into great detail as I tennd not to harp on my view points as I am also an advocate for free speech, I just disagree with the content myself.

It has nothing to do with my sentiment, it happens to be the only thing I can think of for this parody.

Although pacing may need a little work, I still like your parody. It's pretty hilarious if you ask me

That was funny actually... no, I'm not a stereotyper. Plus guys, it's just a non-sense parody.
