The Lyrics

I spend countless hours coming up with these parodies and I am also mentally challenged so they are not easy for me to do at all! It's not anyones fault that comes or runs this site, but I don't take rejection well I get depressed and sad... :-( I'd just though I'd let all you know that... Thanks...
Don't get blue if it rains,
It not like, it's going to rain, forever.

The meteorologist on the TV,
He just honestly said,
that we're all just under the weather.

and while they're on the scene,
trying to do someone dirt,
and it won't be long,
until they broadcast it all,
it's like they really care, who it hurts.

and I guess that's why they call it the news,
Film at eleven,
Don't touch that dial, please stay tuned.

Freedom of the press,
All tomorrow's news today,
All the news not fit to print,
But they print it anyway!

and I guess that's why they call it the news.

There is nothing better than knowledge,
Yet reporters, still have, narrow vision.

They only care bout' ratings,
and what sells their papers,
and forget who pays for or buys them.

and what's a newspaper?
It's black and white, and read all over.

A BIG DEAL!

They make me so confused...
I get to wondering,
If it's news you can use?

and I guess that's why they call it the news,
Film at eleven,
Don't touch that dial, please stay tuned.

Freedom of the press,
All tomorrow's news today,
All the news not fit to print,
But they print it anyway!

and I guess that's why they call it the news.

and what's a newspaper?
It's black and white, and read all over.

A BIG DEAL!

They make me so confused...
I get to wondering,
If it's news you can use?

and I guess that's why they call it the news,
Film at eleven,
Don't touch that dial, please stay tuned.

Freedom of the press,
All tomorrow's news today,
All the news not fit to print,
But they print it anyway!

and I guess that's why they call it the news.

(All the news not fit to print,)
(But they print it anyway!)

and I guess that's why they call it the news.

(All the news not fit to print,)
(But they print it anyway!)

and I guess that's why they call it the news.
and I guess that's why they call it the news....

Buck up, lil' camper... the news is on! (The black, white, and read all over reference was cute.)

Thanks Fiddlegirl!! :-) Yes, I like that line too! I also like the line that reads, "Freedom of the press, All tomorrow's news today, All the news not fit to print, But they print it anyway!" LOL!! ;-)

I forgot to mention I have also been working with a MIDI file of this song, spinning straw into gold, (making it sound better so to speak) using GarageBand on my Mac. and now actually have the "MUSIC!" ready to put together with the words, the music includes a old time radio effect and static effect that a 30's radio made when broadcasting... wildchildilgwom1973@gmail.com is my emil address if anyone would like more info on this... Thanks! JIN ;-)

Last name is Tarzan spelled backwards, huh?
Nice title switch, and good points made, but too much repetition (so is the news, but we're supposed to be better than they are, right?) ... Tip: If rejection gets you down, stay out of showbiz. At one time, was a professional actor and writer, and used to survive by eating my rejection slips (that was before the e-slip). 555 for a good idea; not bad for a new writer. No one's a star overnight; keep working at it ... and also, you might get more readers if you read theirs :)

Yes, and the middle name is "Mowgli" spelled backwards too. :-)
