The Lyrics

I'm feeling productive these days...just two more parodies and I have my own page! This one came to me as I was typing a comment on someone else's parody, and it's basically about how a parody beginner like me feels around the people who are established on here.
(Awkward, stumbling intro music)

I came over to AmIRight
And looked at all your spoofs
Thought I'd try my hand at this
But I was a goof

I saw pros, were they foes?
Had me beat, how could I compete
I began to feel
Yeah, I began to feel
Awkward and new

Like a newbie
"1"ed for the very first time
Like a nee-eee-eew-bie
Tries to find just the right rhyme

Reading the kings of punnery
They're rated to the tops
When I try to mimic them
It becomes a flop

So I race, self I brace
Do I know if I get off-pace?
But once I submit there's no
Yeah, once I submit there's no
Step to retrace

Like a newbie
Novice in a sea of vets
Like a nee-eee-eew-bie
Will be bypassed, I would bet!

Oohhhh man...

Crack of dawn, now it's on
Be prepared for the pro and con
I hope I don't have
Oh, I hope I don't have
Nothing but 1's

Like a newbie
Hey, I guess I lucked out!
Like a nee-eee-eew-bie
Something to write home about

Ooohhhhh, ooooohhhh, do it some more?

555, very good, don't worry about being new here, I have 73 parodies(which is barely a dent on this site, the authors on the top of the page are above a thousand) and have been submitting to this site for over a year.

yeah i know exactly how you feel dude! i started making parodies a while ago, but only started submitting them about a month ago ( i think ) i only have about 26 or 28, but it's really hard to get noticed, you need to get ONE super good parody that gets people coming back to you... which i havent done, except Red Ant who checks out most of my stuff, but i do mostly modern songs for parodies... ah well it was good and relateable ... 545

Very good Cat. Writing comments on others' parodies is not only good for them but for you as well as they sometimes inspire a parody.
Cat - January 05, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks guys! I'm surprised you liked it so much considering I only wrote it in about 10 minutes. I mean, some people take months. But then again, I've already got a couple more ambitious projects brewing in my mind...

(ABC3L) Hey Cat! I thought this was great! I liked the chorus-line "1ed for the very first time" But have no fear, here are some 5s for you.

(ABC) You ain't a newbie now, shweethahht !

(ABC3) It does feel like you wrote it in 10 minutes. :)
Red Ant - November 29, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3L) See above, and it's interesting reading one of your earlier works again, especially after "Newbie Paradise." We've all been there, done that, got the "im a noob" t-shirt and "mr 1s loves me" coffee mug! Not bad at all for a 10 minute write; a few of my better ones were written in that timeframe, too (as well as some of my worst! ;))

I'm coming up on 200, just 17 to go. But quality really is more important than quantity, and you're doing quite well there, Cat.----MM

(ABC3L) as always a classy effort, Cat, and brings back vivid memories of those nervous-newbie days

As Dr. Cox from Scrubs would say, "Good job here Newbie"
Arwen - December 06, 2006 - Report this comment's been a while since you were in the newbie category, huh? But we all know how it felt...I liked this!
