The Lyrics

My friends and I were discussing my parody writing...which I often do on command for them...songs that I don't submit, as they are way too personal for anyone else to get. One of my friends actually issued a challenge to me over email...stating that I couldn't use a South Park phrase in an Air Supply song. I've never been one to step down from a challenge. I chose "Whatever, Whatever, I can do what I want." I'll admit it was a tough one to figure out at first...but it worked out in the end. I can't really claim that it's the best thing I've ever written...but I shared it with him...I might as well share it with you...
I realize the quote's from South Park
But your challenges stung, do you question my art?
But I'm not giving up
I believe I'll produce a par-o-dy

So perk your ears if you don't believe
I've got unwritten songs shoved so far up my sleeve
I figured it out
All I needed was someone to ask me

You know you can't stump me
I've been writing songs too long
It started so easy
I'll always carry on

Lost for words but I'll give it a try
Do you think I'm too proud
To defile Air Supply?
No I will not retreat
Eager to write what you wanted

So, whatever—I can do what I want
I'm the queen of my craft, my talents I will flaunt
I figured it out
All I needed was someone to taunt me

You know you can't stump me
I've been writing songs too long
It started so easy
I'll always carry on

Lost for words but I gave it a try
Did you think me too proud
To defile Air Supply?
I refused to retreat
And I think that I wrote what you wanted

You know you can't stump me
I've been writing songs too long
It started so easy
I'll always carry on

Lost for words but I made the song fly
I'm not even too proud
To defile Air Supply
I think it's easy to see
I managed to write what you wanted

I was lost, lost for words, lost for words, lost for words
I was lost, lost for words, lost for words, lost for words
lost for words, lost for words, lost for words
lost for words, lost for words, lost for words
Repeat to fade...

I had to give you fives just for using the phrase "defile Air Supply"
Arwen - January 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Claude...that very phrase makes me giggle every time I re-read this...not to mention the HUGE pat on the back I gave myself for thinking it up. Thanks again!!

Arwen, Wish I knew the original so I could vote. Saw your remark to 2nz and had to check out the subject. I love the attitude, and from what I seen on this site from you so far I'm sold. You can truly write them to order & serve 'em up fresh...I,. too, like to take up a challenge in that vein my own vain self. Jeez, I just read your remark back to Claude and you do sound way too much like me there. But the chuckle and pat are well-earned and fully deserved, so as long as you can reach back there you might as well. I knew I couldn't be the only one that laughs at their own stuff when it's really off-the-wall funny. Giggling between gasps here.

Did you know there's a darts player called Hankey too? Also Wes Butters hosts the UK Top 40 on BBC Radio 1.

Arwen - January 22, 2004 - Report this comment
He did admit that I am the master. How could he not?? Hehehe. Thanks, Kitty.
