The Lyrics

My apologies to the other Annie if reuse of the name offends him/her.
My name is Leno
I’m a late night talk show host
I have some crazy fans
Prob’ly have seen some of their posts

They watch too much TV at night
And speculate on my future plight
Think they need a few more meds
Think they need a few more meds
Think they need a few more meds

I think they’re tad obsessive
Frankly they all frighten me
I mean, I know I’m impressive
But really man can’t you see

If only they took some more time
To make random verses rhyme
Listen to Agrimorfee
Has a point, Agrimorfee
Listen to Agrimorfee

I don’t think they’re okay
When they write about my chin
Pretty sure there is no way
Their musical hits ol’ Broadway
Oh won’t you please leave me alone
Oh please god just throw me a bone

Get these wackos off the site
Get these wackos off the site
Get these wackos off the site

My name is Leno
I’m a late night talk show host
I have some crazy fans
Prob’ly have seen some of their posts

They watch too much TV at night
And speculate on my future plight
Think they need a few more meds
Think they need a few more meds
Think they need a few more meds

Dr. Music sounds pretty dumb
I bet he can’t do either one
I hope he won’t post anymore
I hope he won’t post anymore
I hope he won’t post anymore

I can't improve on that - they do sound obsessed.

I'm flattered, and enjoyed it greatly. Must have been working Late Night to get this one done.

Heh, heh, heh... Good job speaking the truth! (And I know who you are, nah nah nah nah nah-nah!!!)

2Eagle - Obsessed? Says the one with how many Smelly Cat parodies? (just kidding!)

TOA - Didn't take long. For some reason, this one just flowed out of me.

Matthias - But do you really? :-)

5s simply because this needed to be said and to counterbalance the 1s you will probably get from DM for trying to 'usurp his thunder'.

pointless ramblings from a member that HAS NOW BEEN BANNED have been removed. sorry I let them stay so long, I should have known better

I can tame you, Dr. Music. Whenever I see a comment from you, I'll delete it. Life isn't fair: suck it up.

Does anyone around here know the Rite of Exorcism? There's a rogue spirit running loose that needs to be sent back to whatever plane of existence spawned it.

The sad reality is that as soon as Dr Music's inane ramblings get deleted, the rest of us start looking like the schizophrenics communicating with nobody. :-D That said, I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU TO LEAVE US ALONE!!! *eyes roll back in head*

Worst...troll...ever Maybe not the worst, but certainly the most ridiculously persistent

Reported by me, I am proud to say, early this morning. Thank you once again, eds.

Better late than never, but I will give this parody 5s straight across and an Andria Award for sentiment. I know exactly who left those 2 1-1-1 votes: someone with the initials D.M., and someone with the initials D.C. Also, Agrimorfee is always worth paying attention to.

I'm sorry for getting so worked up about this, it's just a dumb parody - but you have to understand the reason i didn't like it is because it didn't portray Jay in a good light. She portrayed him as being some sort of paranoid fraidycat.

Do you think you could take this whole thing down please?

Also just to make sure that Michael Jackson's lawyers don't sue you for using a verse from one of his songs without permission, you might want to change your name to something else.

Hi it's me again Nathan, sorry for going a bit "Cable Guy" here but here's the thing, i'm sorry for getting worked up because of this stupid song. It's true that you made Jay come across as a paranoid fraidycat crybaby here and to me I just HATE it when someone like Jay gets portrayed in a style similar to that. I am sorry, i am sure you meant well but this song was also an attack on me so I don't think that this song should have even been up.
