The Lyrics

If you're a struggling musician or actor, the movie and the T.V. show did nothing to lift your spirits. It was all about what a tough hard life is is to aspire to perform. And if you do "make it", it's singing insipid songs like this...
Baby, listen dear
And tell me what you hear
You ain't heard the worst pop song yet
I'm unknown, but I'll croon with the best

It's a bore from me
You'll want to catch some Z's
One from the song factory biz
Do you know what this is?

SAME!
This song goes on forever
I'm gonna make you all cry
WHY!
I'm feeling under the weather
Keep singing it till I die
SAME!
All amps are up to "eleven"
Boy, are these lyrics real lame
SAME!
This song goes on forever
Guess you have disco to blame

Remember- December- Offend her- Dent fender
No lender- Go bend her- Now mend her- It's tender

I can sing all night
Though the tune is quite slight
This is what we call power pop
Buncha words that don't even have to rhyme

Baby call this bluff
A little is enough
I should ride this hit, it's a dream
When it's the movie theme

SAME!
This song goes on forever
I better marry a rich
GUY!
Career ain't gonna get better
People will see man and cry
WHO?
Minutes of fame are now seven
Playing the song diva game
SAME!
I'm gonna dress in leather
And I'll go on just the same

Remember- December- Offend her- Dent fender
No lender- Go bend her- Now mend her- It's tender
C# (Bottom note for the day)

Really liked this one, Rick. "All amps are up to "11" - nice Spinal Tap reference. So, now that the Fame kids are yesterday's news, are they still gonna live forever?

Big-bellied cigar-smoking TV producer: "Hey, get me one of them 'American Idol' shows for my network! Yeah, we could call it, uhh, ahh, how about, 'National Object Of Mindless Tasteless Pop Culture Quasi-Worship', eh?"

Well, I don't know what them big-bellied cigar-smoking clones might say, but I can assure you that THIS ol' song-and-dance-man says: Great parody, Rick! 5's

If American Idol , My big Fat Obnoxious Fiancee, and the Littlest Bachlor Person, all can get air time; there may be hope for us after all.
Rick, this was wonderful!!

Clever parody - I liked "words that don't even rhyme."
