The Lyrics

Words, I am always writing words
And I am speaking with words
And there are rules about words

Avoid cliches like the plague
Sorta kinda don't be vague
Don't use no double negatives
To not split infinitives

I think I heard
A politician using words
He turned them into perfumed t**ds
And though you might think it's absurd
Sometimes I make up glarnick words
And if you listen you'll infer
The French have very different words
This is the end of verse the third

I'm sure you've heard
That song that says that bird's the word
And I describe myself with words
Like wonk and dork and geek and nerd
'Cause books are always more preferred
Than girls and women by the herd
Unless they never are deterred
By guys who like to play with words
Call me a ham but I'll be cured

Words - to win at Scrabble
Words - sometimes I eat them
Words - they're on my t-shirt
Words - I like to Tweet them

Words - I wrote this parody with words
I hope they're not my last words
A picture's not worth any words
Sure hope someone sings these words
Words, words, words, words, words, words
(Pass) words, (buzz) words, words, words, words, words

I thought that "Call me a ham but I'll be cured" was a pretty fantastic pun... And the line "He turned them into perfumed t**ds" is so true it's funny! This was a pretty awesome parody, Word Up!

Slipping in the oldie "The bird is the word" was masterful! Reminiscent (i. e., about to plug) song of same title, different OS, meaning somewhat similar, from a n00b TT:

Ok, I like your version better than mine. Funny, with an actual overlaying theme, and thoughtful. I hate you :P Everybody knows about the 5's. 5, 5, 5, they are the vote.

Yeah, Medemia, I am afraid Rex beat you on this one...but he's beaten me at my own game a few times, too. Very clever stuff.

(Artistry) It's always sad when two people parody the same song in a contest. And by 'sad' I mean 'annoying to choose between'. I'm gonna have to go with Rex's due to making a lot more sense (no offense Medemia). Brilliant job as usual, Rex. 555!

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHh. . . .Crazy Words, AAAHHH, you changed up the rhyme scheme a lot here, but didn't miss any of the rhymes. . .very unique word play, and very fun idea altogether, not easy to do considering the simplicity of the TOS.
