Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Our earth is "rocking", but NOT in a good way:
Now a lot of quakes are shaking our world not right
And staving our world's end we fear the world's lost ozone above
Where is the sun screen?
Run from tidal waves but slow bodies swept from sight
There's nobody left where tsumani's would start showing their might

So conserve very standardly, Greenhouse now the gas we free and it's mean
We have to think green
Those shaking sounds we start to hear, too late to repair where it steers
Loved ones lost forever together

There's too much of hate that's causing our world to fight
They blow up our world create fear with rounds of bullets and blood

Why-why-why-why-why-why
Why-why-why-why-why-why-why
Try-try-try-try-try-try-try-try-try-try
Sigh-sigh-sigh-sigh-sigh

We're able very easily, show her now and love will make our earth clean
We can make that dream
Our future's short and end is near, start now to revere our world's tears
Protect it together forever

There's a peaceful hush for making our world just right
Please unite the world we pull together now for saving our love

Yes, our world is our love
Rush, and attend to our love
Rush

Excellent job, Mark. This morning another quake hit Turkey. Chavez claims that the U.S. has an earthquake weapon and we're planning to use it against Iran. If we do, it must be horribly inaccurate! ;D

DKTOS but this parody rocked
Mark Scotti - March 08, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks, Phil. It's an old 70's easy listening tune by the Carpenters. Just about the opposite of an earthquake as you can get, hence the parody...

This world may "rock" in a bad way, but your song definitely "rocks"! So how's about that quake in Chile 8.8? At first I was going to write a parody using that subject, but couldn't find a better OS for it. I used to listen to this OS from one of my parents' album collection. Well, this song is shaking at around 55.5 magnitudes!

Can't find any "fault" with the sentiments here...

What are we, quaked liver? :)
(Richard Carpenter even said that he wasn't happy with how their remake turned out; look it up in Wikipedia.)

It's all San Andreas's Fault! ...
Intro line was LOL; the rest, sad; some true; some elements of fact subject to political footballing, as usual. But certainly captured well here as always.
Tsumani of the good puns have been used up already, so just plain ol 555 ;) (CMM was looking for the Richter scale).

Didjew shee my movie, "Conshptracshy -- uh, "Conspiracy Theory"? (don't mind me, I've had tee martoonis and a scotch and soldier). It already said that the US had a seismic weapon,and that was back in 1997. Go shee - uh, see -- it.

Now if you'll excush me, I gotta go get another drink and go on another drunken, anti-Semitic, bigoted rant.....

The CARPENTERS did this? I only know of the Hermans Hermits version...

Thanks, Meriadoc. The Carpenters re-made it and had a hit out of it.
