The Lyrics

A friend made a parody of this song and it became a hit, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
Young Man
There's no need to be down
I said, Young Man
There's a new site in town
I said, Young Man
You can act like a clown
And get all your friends to come 'round

Young Man
It's a parody site
I said, Young Man
And it's called "AmIRight"
I said, Young Man
You can have a good time
By getting a bunch of words to rhyme.

It's fun to write it up
Write New Lyrics
For AmIRight.com
Write New Lyrics
You can take an old song
And make fun of what's wrong
Get a MIDI and sing along

Write New Lyrics
For AmIRight.com
Write New Lyrics
Young Man, Young Man
Make a parody
Then read it and laugh with me...
Thought I'd earn a few extra points by basing it on this site. ;-)

Good pacing, funny. Nothing spectacular, but a good solid parody.

Thanks for the pacing comment. How I made it was to take a MIDI and kept listening to it over and over to come up with words that pace well. I think the worst pacing I got was the "By getting a bunch of words to rhyme" line. I just couldn't get all the words I wanted in without _ very slightly_ altering the pace.
