The Lyrics

The other night I watched "Easy A," which was about a girl who, when the rumor mill at her high school churned out (totally false) stories of her extreme whorish ways, decided to reinvent herself as the whoriest of whorey whores...without ever actually being whorey at all. Now I find myself in a similar situation. According to some folks on the site...I have lower than average talent, unworthy of praise, and use cheap flirtations and pandering to get un-deserved votes, comments and adoration. Apparently those who have enjoyed my work in the past are too stupid to recognize a good parody, and only SAY they enjoy my work...because I'm a cyber-slut. Who knew? BUT...I figured that if I was going to have this newly discovered, yet totally awesome reputation, I might as well have a theme song to go with it...
I’ll admit I find joy
By doin’ things TO get moot praise
And if I don’t deserve it, don’t deserve it
You KNOW that I have my ways
Tell you what I do
You know what I do
MY songs shouldn’t get more than twos; maybe
If I wink at you
A five I’ll snake it, oh

Flirt so good
Scores are higher ‘cause I flirt so good
Got no chops, so shun me you should
Except I
Flirt so good

I try to be SO invitin’
Just tryin' to keep myself from bein’ the Queen of Ones, yeah
Keep MY words oh so ex-citin’
I’ll say “You’re hot” and “You are hung”
Yeah I make you drool
‘Cause I think you’re all fools
Give me fives like mindless drones, baby
Just like I want you to
You know I’ll take it, yeah

Flirt so good
Kinda cagey that I flirt so good
Pacing sucks, but it’s understood
That I can
Flirt so good

I ain’t close to the real deal
I ain't got “the gift” myself
But I’m walkin’ in high heels
Baby and I whore a-ROUND all day long
So you’re bound t’LOVE MY SONG!

Uh!

Flirt so good
Cyber shake it, yeah I flirt so good
I don’t try…tell me why I would
When I can
Flirt so good?

Flirt so good!
(everybody knows)
Cheap and easy and I flirt so good
All my charms…wise reptile withstood
But still I
Flirt so good

Uh huh!
I'll admit it's not my best work. But really...it doesn't have to be, does it? That's the point. ; )

Hmmm....I didn't get any of your references, would you mind putting together a few pages of footnotes so I can enjoy this parody properly?

I was hoping the "pacing sucks" line would have had three or four more syllables :) But give me a quick wink and I'll let it slide. As they say in French: Gezundheit!

It's true - your best efforts don't get as much attention as the so so essays that pop into your mind in a minute.

Claude...I'd love to...but I'm pretty sure I'm not smart enough. If only someone would post an instructional essay on how to do it...I MIGHT be able to follow along. I'm kind of an idiot...but I'd give it a go.!

Jeff...I honestly considered leaving horrible pacing throughout the parody...but just couldn't allow myself to do it. At least...I don't think I did. Any experts on pacing out there? Anyone? Let me know.

Arwen Fan...LOL! I don't even know who you are...but I love you. = ) Thanks!

2Eagle...= ) Actually, some of my best efforts don't even make it to the site. It would ruin my reputation if I ever actually submitted anything good. ; )

Thanks, too, to the unnamed voters. I don't know if you're ashamed of your vote...or if you're ashamed of giving it to a strumpet like me...but I appreciate you either way. = )
