The Lyrics

If you've ever seen my parody Poland Man, then you'd know that this is not the same Peter Griffin I'm talking about. Anyways, after writing my tribute to Royce Miller, I figured I should write a happy parody to compensate. This is a song about what it takes to be a parody writer. Enjoy the parody. DKTOS? (Don't Know The Original Song?)
Sitting at my computer,
Like other AmIRighters,
I’m thinking of a brand-new spoof.
I don’t care ‘bout the TV,
The E-mail, or the telephone.

Thinking of a subject,
Thinking how to phrase it,
Coming up with unique rhymes,
I gotta be prepared
To use up a bunch of my time.

So let me tell you people
Just what a writer’s gotta know.
Word by word,
You decide how it’s gonna go.

Word by word,
Don’t follow all the herd,
Just give it your own special touch!
Word by word,
Don’t need to be a nerd,
Joe Schmo can do it very much.
Does very much!

My fingers are on fire,
And my work I do admire,
But you don’t need to be like me.
Just hone your own skills
And write some unique parodies.

Then, when you’re all done,
You just go and save your song
And then send it in to AmIRight.
But, don’t take a hike, just
See if others like your song.

So now I’ve told you people
Just what a writer’s gotta know.
Word by word,
You decide how it’s gonna go.

Word by word,
Don’t follow all the herd,
Just give it your own special touch!
Word by word,
Don’t need to be a nerd,
Joe Schmo can do it very much.
Does very much!

Just write it word by word,
The news, some food, the birds,
You can write about these and such.
