The Lyrics

Why let caring about the ratings affect what you write? The true joy to this (other than pleasing the critics) is the challenge that lies in the blank page before you.
Rate me a Five

Writing parodies the old hard way
Rhyming and pacing play by play
We dig verbs and nouns and a bright punch line
Rate me a five, (Rate me a five)

My hog Clem keeps alien hours
That don't make sense but its got power
We dig verbs and nouns and a bright punch line
Rate me a five (rate me a five)
Rate me a five (rate me a five)

I love slime; I'm tokin' to get peace of mind
I'm gonna fake my lines and I'm still getting the high fives
Rate me a five (rate me a five)
Rate me a five (rate me a five)

Writing sets you free an lifts the spirit
I love poetry when I get to hear it
Digging the cleverness of well written line
Rate me a five (rate me a five)
Rate me a five (rate me a five)

I wont whine, I'm talking bout not getting a five
I didn't take my time, making this a good rhyme
Rate me a one (rate me a one)
Rate me a one (rate me a one)
