The Lyrics

I want my, I want my parody
I want my, I want my parody

Now look at them word nerds, that's the way you do it
You write a parody for AmIRight
Make it funny, that's the way you do it
Slackin' from work to get the lyrics tight
Now when you post it, anything can happen
Lemme tell ya, you can be stunned
Maybe get a comment that is not so pleasin'
Maybe get a rating score of one

We've got to write alternative lyrics
Humorous words to any song
We've got to write to “Edmund Fitzgerald”
We don't know why, except that it's long

I shoulda learned to play the guitar
I shoulda got myself a band
Then I'd be famous, I'd have my face right in the camera
Man it would be grand
But look up there, what's that, more pirate lyrics
Bet that I can tell you who the author is
Oh that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Post a message ‘bout nothin', take a penguin quiz

We've got to write SOTM lyrics
Custom kitsch in a parody
I've got to follow what's going on in
The Only Thread That Matters to me

Now that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
You write a parody for AmIRight
Now make it funny, that's the way you do it
Slackin' from work to get the lyrics tight

Slackin' from work to get the lyrics tight

I want my, I want my, I want my parody
I want my, I want my, I want my parody

GENIUS! This parody had me laughing out loud! "Custom kitsch in a parody" is a frikkin' brilliant line, and "But look up there, what’s that, more pirate lyrics / Bet that I can tell you who the author is" is freakin' hilarious, too! Great job, Rex, I love it.

That's excellent! I love the "slackin' from work to get the lyrics tight" bit, as well as the "custom kitsch". And the TOTTM shout-out is priceless. Kudos.

Thank you all. As the Indian Chief in "Little Big Man" said, "sometimes the magic works."
