The Lyrics

A friend suggested I write this, who am I to turn down a challenge :)
Squandered all my cash, bank account runs low
Lost a ton of money, the Facebook IPO
I logged on to my Mac, saw the pics on my feed
Images on my wall, flashing across my screen

A honey badger, a dancing baby
Visions burned in my mind, so the very next day
Got a tricked out smart phone, off an internet store
Once I learned how to use it, I was out the door

That goose attacked, webbed feet and wings spread
Spitted and honked, flapped round my head
It's all on tape, it's quite a show
Transferred to my laptop, then I clicked on upload

Now it's goin viral
Hits never gonna stop
Its an upward spiral
Today you'll find me trending to the top

Now I'm a Facebook hero, click Like on my posts
I'm a Facebook hero
Check out my timeline (Facebook hero) fine videos
Facebook hero, hope you're online tonight

I logged on again today, made an internet hoax:
Back To The Future date change, I fooled lots of folks
Making fake images, combine two different things
Like a squid and shark, sneaking up on me
Now I'm busy photoshopping
Post to the web
There's no way I'm stopping
Now I'm an internet celeb

And I'm a Facebook hero, watch my videos
I'm a Facebook hero, tag all my photos
Yeah, Facebook hero, all those peeps I know
Got five thousand friends, I'll be online
Get online tonight!

Yeah, I'm gotta keep a-tweeting
My phone is fried
Are my thoughts repeating?
My posts have got to go worldwide

Cause I'm a Facebook hero, shaved off all my hair
I'm a Facebook hero, ate poo on a dare
Here's how I feel (Facebook Hero) bout Obamacare?
Now I'm just a Facebook hero, aah aah aah
Facebook hero, Facebook hero, I make cool videos
Like all my posts?

(SOTM) I liked it a lot. It was really funny and I loved the current internet sensation references (like the Honey Badger). I felt like you could have subbed "Facebook Hero" with "Youtube Hero" in that first half. It seemed more about Youtube than Facebook in many places. Overall, funny and fun. Absolutely enjoyable!

I agree with Blaydeman on this one. This should have been called "Youtube Hero" instead of "Facebook Hero" because other than a few buzz words like "timeline", "likes" and "wall" it was mostly about Youtube so it made me a little confused. I mean you can post videos on Facebook but generally speaking it's mostly Youtube that will make you any sort of minor celebrity because not everybody can see your Facebook videos only people you have as your Facebook Friend... So I was a little confused by this whole parody. Sorry Jeff.

(SOTM) I agree with the sentiment that this is more of a Youtube thing than a Facebook, as it involves posting stupid videos that spread across the net like wildfire as opposed to social connections and addicting games. Still a pretty good parody, you just got the wrong title.

SOTM--I'm rarely on facebook anymore...due to all of the stuff you've listed here...hahaha...but you're my facebook hero for sure! I liked this!

Well done Jeff. Especially like your subs for 'a-rockin'. You be that hero.

I am addicted to Facebook (sadly) and this was really good. I agree that this seemed to be more about YouTube than Facebook, and I would have changed the line "click like on my posts" to something like "my post getting likes" to match the "stars in his eyes" line. Other than that, great work here!
