The Lyrics

Dear Hollywood,
STOP RUINING GOOD MOVIES WITH BAD REMAKES!
Sincerely,
rest of the world
They've gone too far this time
Ever since My Bloody Valentine
I tell you somebody's fooling around
Messing around with our minds
The remade films are stupid shit
I just can't understand
Why all this rehashing?
If they touch Casablanca we're all damned

So why must you abuse it?
Try not to bruise it
Soon we're all gonna lose it

The remakes are a money-grabbin lost shots in the dark
The remakes are in charge of finding people dumb as bark
Made a bad movie worse,isn't that bizarre?
Every little thing a remake does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

Every year it's the same old crap in 3D
Piranha,Clash of the Titans,Elm street
Sequels and prequels suck too
Someone give those directors a good beat

So why must you abuse it?
Try not to bruise it
Soon we're all gonna lose it

The remakes are a cash-cow attempt getting nothing but snark
The remakes are in charge of binding us with endless suck
Yet people still enjoy them,isn't that bizarre?
Every little thing a remake does
Leaves you asking yourself WTF?!

(solo)

Oh the remakes they're entertaining about as a tub of lard
The remakes me make wanna kick the directors in the nards
Don't ever expect them to get very far
Evey little thing a remake does
Is filling our heads with question marks

Remakes

Flash - Right on! Stagecoach and Planet Of The Apes already have been redone (redung!) twice each. No remake of Casablanca!!! ;D

Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes" remake was terrible- no replacing Charleton Heston as Robert Taylor and no way any girl will ever replace Nova!!! 555!!!
