The Lyrics

Ah, summer songs. This is actually a tribute to several fellow Amirighters, but Royce is the one whose name fit the title. It doesn't make her great - she's already done that for herself.
Nobody on the board.
Nobody makes me laugh.
The pacing is way, way off.
Nothing new from my pal Spaff.
Chucky did not load up new ones.
That's the way it goes.
No new Phil Alexander
or fresh meat from Florios.
But...

I can see you, the keyboard you're typing upon.
You picked a topic so right to
cause us to have some fun!
I can tell you the votes for you will still be strong
after the Royce's Summer has gone!

I never will forget these nights.
The songs you posted were a scream.
Remember how they sounded crazy
that Merry-and-Pippin team?
I'll never understand the details of their love.
But Higgins and DiRito typing
and Tong still shows just what he's made of.

I can see you, the keyboard you're typing upon.
Your writin' 'bout Bush to show he
should be four years and done!
I can tell you the votes for you will still be strong
after the Royce's Summer has gone!

(Instrumental break)

Out on the road today
I saw a Weird Al sticker on a Lexus coupe.
A little voice inside my head said
"He sounds like a real Bush-Cheney dupe!"
I thought I knew what's funny.
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever.
Should I stay or should I go?
But...

I can see you, the funny man named John.
You try to beat those censors with
songs 'bout a giant schlong!
I can tell you the votes for you will still be strong
after the Royce's Summer has gone!

I can see you, your elf ears pointing to the sun.
You put Tolkien stuff aside to post Shakespearean pun!
I can tell you the votes for you will still be strong
after the Royce's Summer has gone!

Great parody, Michael, and congratulations to Royce, who posted the first comment on my first Amiright parody! "I can see you, your elf ears pointing to the sun" ..... so we have a solar-powered elf amongst us, will wonders ever cease!

This one brought a tear to my eye... it's good to be back! BTW... "Weird Al Sticker on a Lexus Coupe/Sounds like a real Bush-Cheney doupe." That was priceless. And so.... you. ;-)

DKTOS - but a great read Michael. I'm trusting the judgement of the previous commenters and submitting five parodies to the memory of summer '04.

I was babysitting all weekend and was on very minimally...hence my tardiness in checking this out. I LOVE it, by the way...the last verse was my favorite...; ) It's all over fabulous, though, Michael...5s!

Leave it to Michaelopedia to work a Bush slam into an innocent amiright tribute parody. With style. Please forgive my recent absence. August is my Hell Month. But I promise to submit something soon.

Hey y'all - get over here and check this out - you might just be mentioned.
