The Lyrics

The REAL reason REM wrote this song ....
This song's gonna' be a number one
This song will get REM their place in time
A catchy tune - to play back in their mind
This song's gonna' be a number one

Higher, ahhhh
Higher, ahhhh

This tune is designed to be a hit
This tune has no depth, not even just a bit
A simple line - to catch their simple minds
This tune is designed to be a hit

Higher, ahhhh
Higher, ahhhh

This song gives to REM their fame
This song will make Michael Stipe a household name
And even though - the lyrics are quite lame
This song gives to REM their fame

Higher, ahhhh
Higher, ahhhh
Higher, ahhhh
Higher, ahhhh

Great parody. Reminds me of a friend of mine from Ireland who described a singer performing the original REM song who busted out in a nose-bleed on the line "FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-RRRRRE !!!!" My Irish friend thought that really showed the guy was giving his all to the song!

A clever parody I think. I like REM but I don't like their 'arty' tendencies, and Stipe is a weirdo. Nice job.
