The Lyrics

So...after I wrote that little tribute to Mister Robertson, I started kind of feeling bad...because...while I meant every word...there are those of you who have been here on this site...who I have loved...and who have loved me...for much longer...and so I thought I'd drop a few names here...to let you know how much I appreciate ALL of you...and just the site in general...=) (yeah...I had to go through the song 3 times before I was done...but you love me...so you'll read the whole thing, dammit!)
My name is Arwen
And I'd like a moment please
Just to lay out for you
Writers of my fave parodies

They take care of me at this site
So I'm at home here on Am-i-Right
Never cease to make me smile
Never cease to make me smile
Never cease to make me smile

I think that you all knew Johnny
Before you'd been here too long
He was the first one to praise me
He knows lots of words for Dong

His works will nearly make you cry
If you shock easily cover one eye
You'll be rolling on the floor
You'll be rolling on the floor
You'll be rolling on the floor

Want to buy on Ebay
Someone who knows why girls need men
2nz makes me smile, what can I say?
And he calls me sexy everyday

He honored me with my own week
I laugh at his songs 'til I can't speak
Why'd he go to Italy?
Why'd he go to Italy?
I wish he had taken me

(and again!)

And then there's Michael (P!)
Commenting's his fav'rite game
Prob'ly smarter than you
Not sure how to say his last name

He likes to ride on the left wing
Someday I'll make him love "Lord of the Rings"
Won't admit he thinks I'm cute
Won't admit he thinks I'm cute
But he does, so, it is moot

And I know an Ash who kicks ass
Up and coming on the scene
Don't think I've known a coo-ler lass
Gum in hair, she likes Caffeine

One day I think she'll be a star
She'll be a doll with a plastic car
We'll buy her likeness in a store
We'll buy her likeness in a store
We'll have her poster on our door

I can't forget to say
That EmiLoca makes me grin
Well, if you ask here's what I'll say
Her talent just blows me away

I can't believe she's just fifteen
When I die, she could be the Queen
She knows just how cool I am
She knows just how cool I am
She knows just how cool I am

(one more time)

Cookie-man's funny
Has to pee when traffic's bad
Love Hobbits one and two
As for me, I think they're both "Dads"

And there's this guy who makes me laugh
Name might be Nephi, but we call him Spaff
Glad he shares his skills with us
Glad he shares his skills with us
One day he'll have his own tour bus

Paul R. laughs because I'm clumsy
Stray Pooch sticks out in a crowd
Love the boys who stick up for me
Mean comments are not allowed!

My worst nightmare is on this site
He gabs with Frankie all day and night
I just can't follow anymore
I just can't follow anymore
She loves thugs; he hates Al Gore

That's all I want to say
Thank you for all the songs you've shared
I have to visit every day
It's bad for business, but what the hay?

I'm finally going to finish this
If your name's missing, please don't get pissed
That's how forgetful I am
That's how forgetful I am
But thank heaven for how cute I am...;)

You guys!!! I knew this was going to happen. This is what I get for writing at freaking midnight! Ugh! Now I'm feeling like total sh*t!! I'm sorry!! You know I love you, Adagio...and Laurence, too!!!

Oh, Auntie 'Wen...you've outdone yourself. Only you could write an 11-parody-author tribute and still manage to keep it entertaining without becoming overbearing. Well...12 authors, I suppose, if you count all those times you complimented yourself...;-)
Arwen - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Emi...thanks a bunch, little one! Anyone who knows me well has to expect my self-praise...it's one of my most endearing qualities that allows/forces you all to love me so much...=)
Serafina - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Didn't you write another parody of this song, with the same parody title? Well, this one was good too; I must give you a perfect score on it. :)
Arwen - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks so much, Serafina...and an A+ for your perception! This is actually my third Luka parody...one is called "My Name is Arwen," and it's from the POV of my alter ego in Middle Earth...one is called "A Subtle Plea," which is an ode to the "Ones Guy," and finally this one...which is like...3 "Luka" parodies all in one...so...yeah...I should move on, huh? ; ) Thanks!

DKTOS....but thanks for giving us a mention. As for "Dads" - well I keep telling everyone we're both males, but no one believes me! (Wonder why?) ;-D
Arwen - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks for dropping by, Merry...I try not to think about it too much...when I was brand new, I just assumed you were guys...as your Middle Earthian counterparts are. The more aware I became of the "mystery," the more I knew I'd get an irreversible headache if I tried to figure it out. So...I stick to my original assumption...if only in the name of keepin' it simple for my simple brain...=)
Arwen - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
I count 6 people who I mentioned...well, who I praised...(there are a couple that I mentioned that I didn't praise...if you catch my drift)...who have yet to stop in. I don't care if they don't want to vote...or if they think it sucks...but I still want them to know that I love them! (okay, but i really do want them to vote and tell me how fabulous i am...but only if they want to. but really...they should. um...okay...)

Come on, fellow members of The Arwen Air Conditioner Club! Why "Air Conditioner Club" instead of "Fan Club" ? Isn't it OBVIOUS? Tell 'em why, Arwen!
Arwen - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Um...because I do more than just blow cool air around...um...I also have the ability to alleviate dryness and create a moist and all around pleasant environment...for anyone who comes in the room? (um...if you're going for something else, Johnny, I'm going to be so embarrassed!)
The Thought Police - July 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah ,I can imgine myself,standing over a reclining (and contented!) Arwen while gently waving a --air conditioner over her? No thanks! Let me use the fan that I always imagined myself using---that way we'll BOTH be contented! ( DKTOS,but I'm reading this as hard as I can! )

Saluti, Bella. Fantastico. I am honored and humbled, once again, by the sexiest elf I know. Ciao.
Arwen - July 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Holy sexy Italian talk, 2nz!! I knew a guy once who had lived for a couple of years in Italy...he could say ANYTHING to me in Italian, and I would melt. It could have been about the garbage...or about picking his nose...and I was just like, "You are the sexiest man on the planet." That, of course, was before I knew you....; ) Thanks for taking time out of your Roman Holiday to stop by...=)
Michael Pacholek - July 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Again, DKTOS (maybe I'm not worthy of this), but for mentioning me and not pointing out my flaws (it would then be as long as "Edmund Fitzgerald" -- and I mean the song, Johnny D!), you get fives. I, too, am so vain, that I probably think this song is about me... and me alone. (That's the problem: Me alone, and it's a long way to Wyoming -- not that it stopped Dick Cheney.)
Arwen - July 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Michael...so glad you finally stopped by! If I had known that you didn't know the song, I wouldn't have been so hard on you...but I wanted you to know that you were in it...so...thanks....=) And I did mention that one flaw I know about...(refusing to admit that you think I'm adorable...but...since I know you do...I guess I won't make you say it...; )...)
Nephi, er, Spaff - July 13, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, it's about time I dragged my sorry ass over here. Thanx a bazillion for the tribute, Evenstar. I only vaguely remember the original, but flattery will get you fives. And I hope you're planning to spend some quality time on that bus.

Spaffy...in lieu of the embarrassing prospect that you're asking me to drive...I'd happily be your first and favorite groupie...um...always leaving room for the spirit and everything...; )

Hey, I have made a triumphant arrival to Am I Right. And by triumphant, I mean peeking around to see if anyone remembers me. I am sure you all missed me. *looks around* *crickets chirp* Well, anyways, I have done a lot of maturing, going over the crazy things I have sometimes said that make me smack myself in the head. Frankie and I are still corresponding, but instead we are corresponding over my Archie Comics Page, archiepage.us.tt, in the guestbook. Just like our conversations on Am I Right, they have nothing to do with the topic at hand. Glad to see there was a tribute of me. (By the way, I managed to find this while searching "your worst nightmare" in the site search. Yes, I know, I am a total loser.)

Dobbs...

My name is Arwen
Please don't be hard on yourself
Though I did not list you
Still want to be your fav'rite elf

If you are a devoted fan
And try to praise me whenever you can
I'll write songs for you one day
I'll write songs for you one day
But what's the deal with J-M-J?

Lucky you're so damn cute! I thought 'Luka' would have instantly inspired a string of ideas about me, but then I guess Chucky G doesn't stand for attack parodies... lovely work here, Arwen.

Great one, Arwen. Unfortunately, I'll have to see photographic evidence of your purported cuteness, since I am definitely cute and could possibly be comparable. ;-) I might have to try my hand at something like this myself, at the risk of being called a narcissist.

Lady Arwen, this is great ! ! Loved every line ! PS: never would've guessed that JohnnyD speaks "dong" . . . . very funny line here in NorCAL !
