The Lyrics

Who can compete? This song has no flaw!
Go away, don't click on any more.
It's the best here at AmIRight!
You recognize perfection at first sight.
As an artwork it stands alone
Clever rhymes, with words like 'guillaume'
It's the zenith of all contrived
But the scale, it only goes to five-

Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?

It's that Weird Al knocking at my door,
but I don't, sell him ideas no more.
I sit here and write songs all day
and submit to AmiRight's buffet
They show my charm, I write them myself
I'm showing off my taste and mental wealth
If I get stuck for an idea, then
I just write a junk food song again!

Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?

To make your next song stand out right away
then come and follow me:
keep lower case, and don't parody
@#$&% Avril Lavigne

Yeah!

---Instrumental---

(Who-oo-oo)
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?
Who can compete now?

(Ahhhhh... oh oh)
Who can compete now?

(Ahhhhh... yea-eah!)
You can't! You can't!


(Ahhhhhh yea-eah, hey, wah wah wah...)

Belated congrats on this winner, Stevenagh. I'm particularly fond of the Avril line. Did you ever post this under your "real" name?
