The Lyrics

Ever gotten stuck in a video game thanks to an insanely tough boss? Happens to all of us all the time, pretty much. (Not to offend those with mad gaming skills.) But this parody is devoted to all people who have that one boss in mind that they can't beat.
I guess I thought I'd win in a minute
That's really big-headed, that was a mistake
Don't know how good you are until you're dead
And I found out when Bowser flamed me

I was acting as if nothing could ever stop me
Never ever knowing that Ganon would kick my butt
And then I was dead, quite the thing to dread
And that dude is stomping my corpse*

Now me defeating you
Takes a lot of practice to do
I try to take them on
But I don't want to
You defeating me
Is all a big mistake
Instead of gaining victory
I lose and I'm 'bout to break
I just cannot beat you
In this hard video game

I used some cheat codes, I had every reason
No, you can't blame me for putting them in
I'm here at this battle, but couldn't get by
Now that Sepiroth's in my way

After all of these years
I'm still trying to beat you
Doing much better but I'm still far behind
But when you arrived, a one-sided fight
I can't beat you up in this game

Now me defeating you
Takes a lot of practice to do
I try to take them on
But I don't want to
You defeating me
Is all a big mistake
Instead of gaining victory
I lose and I'm 'bout to break
I just cannot beat you
In this hard video game

I just can't beat you
My Achilles heel
You're just too strong, man

Me defeating you
Takes a lot of practice to do
I try to take them on
But I don't want to
You defeating me
Is all a big mistake
Instead of gaining victory
I lose and I'm 'bout to break
I just cannot beat you
In this hard video game
It's a hard video game
I just cannot beat you
In this hard video game
I just cannot catch you, Groudon!
* Refers to a tactic used by trolls on xBox live to tick off gamers. (They kill you in a FPS and jump repeatedly on your corpse.)

Great parody!!! Now this is what I'm talking about! When it comes to parodies, you sure know what you're doing, and what you're writing about! I gave up on video games a long time ago because I'm always losing and getting game overs all the time! I was always frustrated. So I just switched to a new hobby. Great pacing, great rhyming on your part! 5's.

Thanks! If you do go back to gaming, try playing easier levels, or games that you can't die in, like Oddworld. This could help lower the frustration level.
