Song Parodies -> "I Think That You Suck"

Original Song Title:

Original Performer:

Parody Song Title:

"I Think That You Suck"

Parody Written by:

Jeff Reuben

The Lyrics

I think that you suck
Your pacing's way off base
Punctuation ain%t worth a f---
And you don't know...how to rhyme

I think that you suck
With your sad, cheesy puns
If I think your votes are too high
I'll spam your song with ones

I don't like artist tributes
Unless you're praising me
Someday in the future I hope that you will see
I'm who you want to be

I think that you suck
You smell like cheese
Everytime you walk by
I pray for a breeze

I think that you suck
Cause you're not very bright
Guess the reason you voted ones
Is that you can't count up to five

Please do the club a service
With lyrics that you spew
Don't just use the OS, come up with something new
Unless that's beyond you
Something you can't do, baby

I think that you suck
No matter what you do
Half the songs you spoof are too old
The other half are way too new

I think that you suck
Decade Police!
Wish you'd just go and read my song
Before you speak your piece

So stick to misheard lyrics
Not songs of pee and poo
This elitist snob club don't want to deal with you
Cause you don't have a clue
You don't have a clue, baby...

"This Elitist Snob Club don't want to deal with you!" LOL!!

Incidentally, I'm not only the President of the Elitist Snob Club...I'm also a member.

I couldn't love this more if I tried. And I did try. But to no avail. It's just FABulous...posted with perfect timing...and hilarious, to boot.

A triumphant comeback, Mr. Reuben!

Top job, here
Arwen - June 21, 2007 - Report this comment
Two things...

McKludge...anyone can join. You just have to be able to go 24 hours without whining...and also, buy me a present.

And...number 2...Oh. My. Hell. I cannot believe you have the audacity to say ONE DAMNED THING to Jeff, "Idiot That This Parody Was Written About." Seriously. First of all...Jeff hasn't said one word about your stupid "controversy" until now...so to say that he's "still" harping on it is inaccurate. Secondly...to imply that he should "get over it" implies that he gives a crap about you...which I'm sure he doesn't. You can make fun of something that is totally ridiculous without needing to "get over" anything. We like to mock stupidity...that doesn't mean we really care about it.

YOU'RE the one who needs to get over yourself. And until you're man enough to freaking come out in the open and tell everyone who you really are...you have NO PLACE to speak about anything. Until you post your opinions as yourself...NOTHING you say matters...because it's like nobody is saying it. You're going to talk crap about everyone else around here and then throw a whiney fit because of THIS?? At least Jeff's parody was funny.

AND...lest you think you're some SUPER original piece of hot garbage..it's not like you came up with some revolutionary insight with your whinefest. You're not the first person to post a parody complaining about how mistreated you are around here. I think this parody was written with ALL the whiney babies on the site in mind...not just you. But if you want to take credit for being a freaking stupid JERK...like the one portrayed in this parody...go right ahead.

Finally...just in case you're about to rip into me again, saying that I obviously DO care about you, because I wouldn't have written this if I didn't...I will assure you that what I care about is getting the IP address blocked of anyone who uses the very last word in your post. Seriously. That's classy...

Ah, AmIright's main egotist has taken offense at me again. You're the one that always goes on about how "cute" and "adorable" you are. You got a pic to back that up? Because your parodies sure haven't proven anything about what you claim, other than that you are waaaay too full of yourself. But in all seriousness, you said I never voted for you. Well, fact is, I have. And I LIKED several of your parodies, 'Keep Avoiding You' was great, and I gave it full 5's. Only reason I didn't comment is because, as you've said yourself, only your friends matter, and anything I might have said, you would have ignored. Because that's just how you are.
Jason - June 21, 2007 - Report this comment
Very good Jeff! Another un-PC parody!
Arwen - June 21, 2007 - Report this comment
I've never denied being an egotist...I LOVE myself. I'm my biggest fan. I think I say so in my introduction on my author page. And if everyone else on the site hated me...and thought I was horrible in every way...I would STILL love myself. I make no apologies for that.

And I never said only my friends matter. I said nothing an "anonymous" poster says matters. Tell us who you are.
Arwen - June 21, 2007 - Report this comment
And anyone who knows me, knows that 99% of the time, I thank EVERY person who comments on my stuff...individually...so your "you ignore everyone but your friends' comments" argument holds no water whatsoever.

To OTTPWWA: As Carly Simon sez "You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you."

Bravo, Jeff. In fact, it's so perfect I wish I had written it, and that's a fact. I think something has been removed from the comments before I read this, but I can guess who it was, and what it said. The Anonymous Parodist, correct? Anyway, I believe every single thing you said here, in such a clever way, in perfect parody form. Couldn't have done better if I'd tried. Or anybody had tried. 555++++ p.s. check your author's page for 1's. Everybody who commented under the "I Won't Kiss @ss" parody had their songs 1-1-1'd. So he's probably the 1 man, also
Red Ant - June 22, 2007 - Report this comment
Very funny work here, Jeff. I've been throwing around a few Huey Lewis parody ideas lately, though nothing would have matched this one. 555, but what's wrong with misheard lyric parodies?
Kristof Robertson - June 22, 2007 - Report this comment
Great great retort here, Jeff...there are some people who really need to just freakin' get a grip.
Oh, and Arwen....Holy Guacamole, Batman! I think Mr/Ms Whiney has gone to hide under a rock somewhere. I didn't see the original post that inspired your reply, but good going, sister!
Oh, almost forgot....555+ for Jeff, and a hearty welcome back.
Jeff Reuben - June 22, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks Matthias, Jack, Ann, McKludge, AFW, Jason, Kristof and John! Arwen, thanks, and I have to give you some credit here with helping come up with the idea for the song. You rock! Red Ant: Thanks, I have nothing against misheard lyric parodies. The message I was going for was that it's easier to come up with one misheard lyric than an entire parody song. That said, there's some funny stuff in that section.

Also, thank you Dee Range! Didn't mean to leave you out.

Hey Jeff, I gave you 5's. How come you didn't thank me? Yep, the opposite of what you jerks thought I would do. If it weren't for me you would just have 13 all 5's instead of 14. Oh that's right...you're in the Elitist Snob Club (good name by the way, because thats what you are). Oh well, thats okay.....you're welcome for the 5's. =) By the way, to those accusing me, I'm not the 1 guy. If you got 1's...maybe, just maybe it was because....*gasp*....someone didn't like it. Oh, heaven forbid the snobs don't 5's all the time. HAHA

McKludge - June 25, 2007 - Report this comment
Well, not really my tiff. I probably shoulda stayed out of it. Oh well. Wait, do you mean Arwen and I have a tiff? If we do, that's news to me. Guess I should have gotten her that present ... :-)
Arwen - June 26, 2007 - Report this comment
Jonathan, there's no tiff between me and McKludge. My anger was directed at the "Anonymous Parodist," whose original comment was deleted. I think that McKludge is nothing less than delightful.

(But...McKludge, you should still buy me a present...; )...)
