The Lyrics

From The Album "Something Goats Can Dance To"
I'm outta breath, outta tune
Another parody about food
Have no talent, I'm in a rut
Will forever work at pizza hut
The thought of me on a stage seems wrong
Croaking out an original song
It sucks, so bad, what's wrong with me
I should, stick to, my parody

Oh, what have I done to this innocent song
Oh no, what have I done
Parody, I should sing just
Parodies, only allowed my
Parodies, no real songs just a parody
I should be shot

It's getting lonely, way down here
Still have no contract, a new year
Think I'm a fraud, a real fake
They're hoping one day, they'll see me flake
Ripping off of songs like these
Maybe I'm famous over seas
It's old, it's done, over for me
They all, are sick, of parodies

Oh, wish I could write an original song
Oh oh, wish I could write
And maybe sing too
Parody, all I write are
Parodies, all I sing are
Parodies, no real songs just a parody
I should be locked in a shed

Oh, someone just stole all my wannabe songs
Oh no, someone just stole
I gotta sue now
Parody, they stole all of my
Parodies, they copyright my
Parodies, no real songs just my parodies
That otta learn me

Parody...

I think you hit the nail on the head about the lifestyle most of us here lead. Funny stuff! 555

(May SOTM) I liked, I liked. DKTOS so I had to compare it with only the lyrics, which wasn;t a good as experience as humming. Loved the 'pizza hut' line. 5-4-4

"No real songs just a parody." Ouch, Magical Mystery Goat - that hits a little close to home. (That's a compliment.)

(MAY SOTM) DKTOS here too, but funny!

The pizza hut line was my fave too. Very tightly paced.

Good parody - I liked the ending.

We're all very special people here, huh? He went through all the time to write a song and name it 'Parody', he is the very model of a Goat who is a Mystery

(ABC) I'm baaa-aaaack! Just as enjoyable as the first time round, I'll revote your 5ers right now.

I could have sworn I commented on this first time around (not like me to miss songs off Pyromania). Missing the occasional syllable, but the perfect scansion of "I should be locked in a shed" made me LOL :-)

I liked the locked in a shed part too. Well done.

(SOTM Wild Card) DKTOS, Mr Goat, but this was a fun read, and a good insight into the minds of parody writers. Excellent!

(SOTM WildCard) 3rd time lucky? Wait and see!

(SOTM WILD) DKTOS, still say what I said before. 5's

What Spaff said. I'm only too happy to revisit this one. This time around I'm especially fond of the whole first verse. Great job, Magical Mystery Goat.
Melhi - January 12, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM-WC) Yep, I still like this one.
Scathe - January 12, 2005 - Report this comment
(Wild Card)The parody is a comedic art more than it is a musical art. Tim Mayfield has shown that you can do both, so reach for the stars, Mystery Goat.

Great job MG! This was excellent!

very funny ... the last verse was a clever turnaround.... 5s (wild card)

What everybody else wrote. A lot of good lines and a good concluding verse.

I'm not sure what my first comment means, so I'll start over. (commence monotone) This is very good. I identify with your feelings throughout this rightly-titled parody. Good job, Goat who is a Mystery.
