The Lyrics

Every fandom has their resident predictors of doom, ranting that if the show doesn't fit their demands just right, it's destined to fail and fail miserably. These people are generally regarded as "stupid". Enjoy!
It's great at least in the first place
Fandom's great but the ingrates
Kinda ruin it, must say
They're postin' ev'ry day, whinin' 'bout each plot turn
"She got with him? Please! That guy didn't die? Please!"
They think that the plot should be written
With them in mind, they're ventin' each day, they whine and cry
"Why is HE survivin', I don't like his stupid face
His toys may have sold the highest, but he still should fry
Bastard, come on fandom, vote in tandem with our money 'til our wants are met"
Thread by thread, these morons babble, dissecting plots
Think that it's all made for them
But it's more like 10 percent, hate to say it, dudes
The same percent of the fans that are gits
Forget the main needs of the main company
Is to make cash that the adult fandom can't provide, right
But they're still whinin', screamin', cryin' "We're right, it's shite
This show's end is nigh"

It's the end of the franchise, they know it
"It's the end of the franchise, I know it!"
It's the end of the franchise, they say it
But they're not right

Though the show's a half-hour ad for merchandise, they glower
They've got burns unearned, so their rage will be heard
Way too much needless scorn that they're churnin', they're frettin'
That the "fail" will not abate, should re-examine their hate
Not a scandal that the show is fun now, somehow
That means it sucks, sucks, oh no
Reasons aren't clear, but they smear cause of somethin' they hold dear
Nostalgia, man, nostalgia, man, nostalgia tends to lie
Glasses are rose-coloured, show wasn't superlative
They pine for shite

"But the end of the franchise is comin'
Yes, the end of the franchise, it's comin'
It's the end of the franchise, we know it" (lots of factors they don't know)
They're still not right
Far from right

"It's the end of the franchise, I know it (have you seen the current show?)
It's the end of the franchise, we know it (can't you tell it really blows?)
It's the end of the franchise, they blew it (if you can't, then you're a dope)"
Still far from right

And ev'ry time the ratings dive, they're so friggin' smug online
"We were totally right: THIS SHOW IS SHITE"
No point in tryin' to disprove the bad-nerd gang
They're convinced they're so great and so not fools
It's more relaxin' to just point an' laugh at their "plight"
Right

"It's the end of the franchise, I know it (we're all right and you're all dopes)
It's the end of the franchise, we know it (how it sucks? That's need to know)
It's the end of the franchise, they blew it (there's so many ways it blows)"
Still think they're right
"It's the end of the franchise, I know it
It's the end of the franchise, we know it
It's the end of the franchise, they blew it (it's a simple fact, it blows)"
But are they right?
Not the end of the franchise, I know it (I just thought I'd let you know)
Ain't the end of the franchise, far from it (lots of links I'm glad to post)
Not the end of the franchise, it's goin' (not the end, far from it, bro)
To be just fine
Not the end of the franchise, I know it (don't agree? That's fine you know)
Ain't the end of the franchise, far from it (your opinion's fine, although)
Not the end of the franchise, it's goin' (don't express it like a schmoe)
To be just fine

They're the same with ev'ry show

From elves to sabers, from robots to ponies, this Chicken Little crap refuses to die. Always be sure to recognise such behaviour and react appropriately, from ignoring those who do it, and correcting yourself if you catch yourself doing it.

This is a formidable song to parody. I know, I've done it twice and I blew a microchip inside my cranium both time before i finished. So here's some 5's (here some 5's)

Whew! every time every single time I read a parody of this song I imagine how hard it must be for the authors to write I get lost enough trying to keep up with it! I commend you conqueror_of_parodies! 5's!
