The Lyrics

This is a big tribute with tons of names in there. And by the way i really have no idea how to pronounce yasmr that the guy who starts with y. Look for your name theres a fairly good chance youre there if you wrote alot
Alvin Dover, William Tong, Royce Miller, Ghetto John
Great Karlando, Tim O'Heron, Jeremy Otto

Joe Fernandez, Malcolm Higgins, ¨Xenocide¨'s 'bout, Ender Wiggin
There is Billy, There is Michael, both named Florio

Syncronos, Armstrong, STG, wrote ¨bong song¨
Junior wrote ¨Eggroll¨ and he wrote ¨watching the mole¨
Philbo Baggins, wrote that, ¨Puff the tragic Drag Act¨
Wolveroses, Skisics Surus, online boredom goodbye

We didn't start the genre
Since there were guys rocking
There were others mocking
We didn't start the genre
But now we are striving
To make sure it's thriving

Lardylicious, Pokemon, Osama Songs by Crazy Don
Darkjon's ¨frozen¨, the song ¨bowlin¨ mock the same song

Blink, Pink, and Linkin, got lots of guys thinking
To parody, their newest hit song

Lebiew 15 wrote the song called ¨lord of the rings¨
And there's My Name is Kenny, Ronnie Presley, so many

Capewell, ¨She loves stew¨ I don't think his, stuff's new
Name of guy, starts with Y, can't pronounce it, can you?


We didn't start the genre
Since there were guys rocking
There were others mocking
We didn't start the genre
But now we are striving
To make sure it's thriving

Evan wrote like a score of songs based on The Fab Four
Leper, Mr. Fright, Find them on Am-I-Right

Bryan o' Connor writes songs about Disney rides
Haunted Mansion, Test Track, and one about Men in Black

Steve Cavanagh writes more than all 'bout Star Wars
He wrote ¨Dad¨ to ¨Bad¨ also ¨Jabba got Fat¨

Blow-Town, always points, out we should check, out his joints
There's his song ¨Fat or White¨ And there is ¨Miller Lite¨

We didn't start the genre
Since there were guys rocking
There were others mocking
We didn't start the genre
But now we are striving
To make sure it's thriving

Syncronos has penned ¨I am Lisa Simpson¨
¨Homer¨, ¨football¨ that guy's skill is not small

Joe Kaiser does not write much, but he's got the Midas Touch
Five songs, he wrote have more than 50 votes

Buchoff has to pee and wrote ¨poop scoop boogie¨
STG parodied two hundred and thirty three

We didn't start the genre
Since there were guys rocking
There were others mocking
We didn't start the genre
But now we are striving
To make sure it's thriving

Bobo likes, Everly, Malcolm Higgins at Whatfreaks
Some kids, tried tricks - votergate, that's fixed
Thought wrong Armstrong not one guy, Dave he wrote Napster Pie
There was a fake STG, PF really loves Britney

Bethie Baby, Nancy Gal, STG don't like Big Al
Acidbrat, XanderMatt, Hayes, Jim, this site's phat
Leo was ripped off one week, there is a song called ¨Don't Squeak¨
It's by Tone-Def yes that's me, please vote on this parody



We didn't start the genre
Since there were guys rocking
There were others mocking
We didn't start the genre
But now we are striving
To make sure it's thriving

We didn't start the genre
And when we are gone
Some will still write on, and on, and on, and on

I just found this one, and I love it. Of course, it was written when I'd just gotten started on this site, so I'm not in it. But don't write a whole new one on my account... Actually, that's a recommendation, not an order... Well, maybe a suggestion... OK, maybe only a hint... Ah, do whatever you want, everybody else does...
