The Lyrics

I heard "Hang On Sloopy" the other day. And I thought, "OK, let's write a parody called 'Hang On Snoopy.'" Oops, three people already had similar ideas, and I'd even fived and commented on two of them. (The third didn't allow comments.) Good thing I checked first. Very important parody guideline: If a title seems obvious to you, chances are (unless, or maybe especially if, it's a brand-new hit), it already seemed obvious to somebody else. As the Snooper himself would say, "AUUUUUUUUGH!"
Well, I heard a song that's rockin' just the other day.
And I said I'd put a parody on the board.
But let me tell you they had some news for me.
And it did not bring me glee.
And a bunch of imprecations I have roared.

'Cause it's already done.
And I'm feeling dumb.
You will think I'm such a bum.

Whoo-hoo-hoo?
Oy vey.
Oy yi yi.

The ditty that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why.
But I guess you felt like you had to make me laugh.
Just remember this, my girl:
When you get that song unfurled
you should check if it's already on the graph.
By Spaff?

'Cause it's already done.
You'd be feeling dumb.
We would think you're such a bum.

Whoo-hoo-hoo?
Oy vey.
Oy yi yi.

(instrumental break)

Well, you know it wasn't me who gave you ones.
Heaven knows it wasn't you who thought it first.
So often times it happens
that we write something that rocks
and it goes over like day-old liverwurst.

That song, it's already done.
And I'm feeling dumb.
You will think I'm such a bum.
'Cause it's already done.
And I'm feeling dumb.
You will think I'm such a bum.
'Cause it's already done.
Yes, it's already done.
Yes, it's already done.
Yes, it's already done.
(repeat 'til fade)

I will 5 this...because I love Mr. Pacholek, and that is what I do for him...but also because it's great...well paced, funny, the whole lot...

...but I have to say...and I guess I'm alone on this one...that I really don't care if someone redoes a title/idea that I have already submitted. ESPECIALLY if they were unaware that I did it first. I feel like...if they thought of it all by themselves, then they shouldn't hold back their creativity just because I happened to think of it first.

I do check all of my ideas against the site history, because I know that the majority of writers are bothered by it...but just so you all know...if you've got a masterpiece that you're holding back just because I have one in my list of the same (or a similar) title...PLEASE SUBMIT IT. Obviously mine will be better...; )... but you should share yours anyway...(hehehe)
