Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Madonna you've got to be very upset
That nobody liked 'Body of Evidence'
You realize that we hated 'Shanghai Surprise'

I see your name on the marquee
and know the theater will be so empty

You can't fill the seats
So I know what I'm saying

Her acting's an awful disease
Let's burn all of her DVDs

She can't find film success
Her acting's not the best

- So please

Madonna don't act
I just can't hack it
Madonna don't act
'Cause you have no talent

So give up your dream of being on t.v.
Mmm, Give up your dream, mmm...

Madonna why can't you see
from your bad films we all must flee

We'd rather be hit with clubs
Than sit through your duds

Theaters should hand out barf bags
If we're forced to watch this wrinkly hag

Here's some advice and I'll give it to you free

- please


Bad reviews you will always get
'Cause you can't act and you have no hits

If directors had sense
They wouldn't cast you again
You stuck-up has-been

Madonna don't act
You're not a thespian
Madonna don't act
You need acting lessons

Who is "B. Elliot"? Whoever it is, did NOT duet with Madonna; she performed the original by herself.

B. Elliot = Billy Elliot You know, that dancing kid in that movie... I believe Madonna and him sung "Papa Don't Preach, Daughter Can't Sing" in tribute to the Osbourne family. j/k

This is the best anti-Madonna parody since my own "Crazy Mama, Oy Vey, Madonna." (shameless plug)

For Anon and MrMacphisto: "B. Elliot" is the guy who wrote the song. I wasn't sure how I was supposed to credit the thing.
