Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The original was written by Van Morrison. The mountain region is usually pronounced "AP-a-LAY-chin," but the university calls itself "AP-a-LATCH-in," so I'm using that. You think writing parodies is easy? YOU come up with a viable rhyme for "Appalachian" -- in either pronounciation!
Appalachian State, they came and beat you.
Walked into Ann Arbor to defeat you.
Filled their hearts with gladness.
Gave the Big House sadness.
Gave you troubles, that's what they do.

Under Midwest sun and all its glory
showed why One-Double-A crowns, they've got two.
Now their fans have laughter.
And you thought you were better?
Gave them no troubles, that's what you do

Michigan's now defined
by how they've lost and they've whined.
Come undone.
And at the end of the day
they shake their heads and they say
"It's no fun."

Appalachian State, they came and beat you.
Walked into Ann Arbor to defeat you.
Filled their hearts with gladness.
Gave the Big House sadness.
Gave you troubles, that's what they do.

Michigan's now defined
by how they've lost and they've whined.
Come undone.
And in the following week
heard them lose, yell and shriek
Oregon!

Appalachian State, they came and beat you.
Walked into Ann Arbor to defeat you.
Filled their hearts with gladness.
Gave the Big House sadness.
Gave you troubles, that's what they do.

Filled their hearts with gladness.
Gave the Big House sadness.
Gave you troubles, that's what they do.
The bad news is, Michigan lost at home, at Michigan Stadium, the Big House, in front of 110,000 fans, to both Appalachian State and Oregon. Last year, they were a field goal away from playing for an undefeated National Championship. This year, they've started 0-2 at home. The good news is, they didn't have to travel to lose, Oregon was wearing their road whites and not their hideous lemon-yellow home jerseys, and now Michigan gets to play the equally embarrassing 0-2 Notre Dame.

Great job, and great choice of 90s OS! I shall award you a 555 for such wonderful work, Mikey!

Do you mean that, Poomaster, or are you just an Ohio State or Michigan State grad who hates the Wolverines? Not that I would mind...

I dunno, it seemed to lack pacing. But the content is good overall.
