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
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
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.
