The Lyrics

Well, we were all newbies to entering the SOTM contest for the first time! This describes someone wanting help to succeed in beating the regular winners! (The regular winners know who they are!) This can also be sung as "Song Of The Month" as well as "S O T M"
Writer, do you want an award?
I said, writer, leave your name on the board
I said, writer, 'cause you're on AmiRight
Theres no need to get all 1 votes.

Writer, theres a place you can try
I said, writer, when your writing is high
You can go there, and you'll definetly find
Plenty votes to get a good sign

Its fun to enter the SOTM!
Its fun to enter the SOTM!

They have all the help that you need to do well
You can meet up with all the dudes.

Writer, why not give it a try?
I said, Writer, register and you'll fly
I said, Writer, you can beat the best now
But you have to sit down and write

Writer, you can be at the top
I said, Writer, there's no need to be flopped
And just enter, to the SOTM
Im sure you can write well today.

Its fun to enter the SOTM!
its fun to enter the SOTM!

They have all the help that you need to do well
You can meet up with all the dudes.

Its fun to enter the SOTM!
its fun to enter the SOTM!

They have all the help that you need to do well
You can meet up with all the dudes.

Writer, I was once in the blues
I said, I was new and learning the rules
I felt no one dared to enter this thread
I felt the whole test was so dead

Thats when Kristof gave me a hand
And said, Jason, take your head out the sand
It's a thread there called the SOTM
You can enter and do your best

Its fun to enter the SOTM!
its fun to enter the SOTM!

They have all the help that you need to do well
You can meet up with all the dudes.

SOTM!
Its fun to enter the SOTM!
Writer, writer do you want an award?
Writer, writer leave your name on the board!

SOTM!
Its fun to enter the SOTM!
Writer, writer are you trying your best?
Writer, writer you should put to the test

SOTM!
You'll find it in the SOTM!
Writer, author does it all for the votes
Writer, writer we were all in the same boat

SOTM!
then just enter the SOTM!
Writer, writer I was once in the blues
Writer, writer I said, I was new and learning the rules
SOTM!

That was great, awesome idea/title sub .5s
Jason - March 12, 2008 - Report this comment
Thanks Jack and Stan! This took me AAGGEESS to write!

Now do "ABC" (should be easy as 1,2,3!) ;) Nice promo.
Jason - March 12, 2008 - Report this comment
Thanks Agrimorfee! As I said above, this took me a very long time to write. I am still working hard to be on top of the SOTM leaderboard though.

This may motivate me to enter sometime.

Thaks for the shout out, Jase. Only too happy to lend a hand to newbies, if they turn out as committed as you, mate. 555

I'm not an author myself, but I loved reading this parody. It still gets a perfect score from me.

One of your better writes, Jason. Good humor, great pacing, excellent chorus sub. Only thing I might have changed is the "They have all the help that you need to do well/ You can meet up with all the dudes" lines to rhyme a bit better and be less repetitive... and to include the women who enter SOTM. =)

I did get a bit lost in scanning this to the song, but I think I was listening to a remix (it's hard to find this OS on YouTube!), so no points off there. You definitely improved upon TOS. 555

Thanks Jack! Your feedback is always welcome. Its great to see my works getting great all the time.
Jason - April 09, 2008 - Report this comment
In this, the first chorus is actually repeated once.
Jason - April 10, 2008 - Report this comment
OMG! Some stupid prick unobombed me! Shame whoever did it is much to cowardly to leave a comment!
tomario - April 15, 2008 - Report this comment
I got thrown by the extended first chorus as well. But all in all a very good parody.
Max Power - April 18, 2008 - Report this comment
The coward does it to me dozens of times.

Yea I have noticed. Can't understand why as your parodies are quite good.
Peter Andersson - April 19, 2008 - Report this comment
Such an obvious title swap that I figured it should have been done already, but searching says no, so I say yes and give you 5s despite having to go for another source.
Matthias - April 19, 2008 - Report this comment
This was pretty decent, but the fact that it is too Amiright-esque is going to hurt you when it comes time to vote, because although we can relate to it this song is not open to a wide audience if it was recorded.
Agrimorfee - April 25, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Is it what it says it is? Only after the votes are counted can we be sure. :)
Red Ant - April 25, 2008 - Report this comment

(SOTM-Mar08) The SOTM idea went very well with the OS. And I do not doubt that you worked hard and long on this one. The OS at first glance looks easy to do but I have done this one and this is one author that knows it is no push over. "In The Navy" is even worse. I'm giving extra consideration for a good job on a tough song and your crack at the SOTM recognition. Good job Jason.
Invisible Boy - April 27, 2008 - Report this comment
Hey Jason. Here you are in the SOTM. The parody idea was funny. I wish you nothing but the best in this round and in the future.
Phil Alexander - April 28, 2008 - Report this comment
I'm starting to think it's me... another technically very good parody: well-worked and fits its subject matter well. But I still didn't find it very funny, I'm afraid.

(SOTM) As Matthias said, parodies about AmiRight rarely do well in the SOTM (I speak from experience). However, you did do a great job here, so there's that at least.
Mikey Squirrel - April 29, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM- Sounds like a great promo to bring more authors into the comps. Well done, Jason.
McKludge - April 30, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM - I think it would been a little bit better if you mixed up the chorus like Red Ant said above.
Below Average Dave - April 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Well, I have only made the podium once, so I know how you feel. What makes it worse for me is I'm always right behind the top 3 it seems. In fact, it's become rhetoric. Weenie on a Hot Bun, Full of Himself Rhapsody, Smelt You on the Bus Line--I've had so many that were "Number 4" or 5, and Churnalicious may join that list. I do particularly bad on the last day (as the one who does the math, I do see when I drop out, but I keep on trying none-the-less, Antarcitcan Terrorist--my one SOTM medalist that wasn't a Wild Card from last year, nearly dropped out the last day too, so I know how you feel)

Well written parody, Jason! So glad they gave you an SOTM for your SOTM!!! This would make the best theme song for AmIRight!! 555!!!
