The Lyrics

Though the songs name may not go that well with the original, I still wanted to write about it! One song even made me cry once!
All around me I hear doleful ballads
From the eighties, and the present
With a rhythm that makes them all sound sad
Quite depressing, quite depressing
Bringing tears that's caused from all the masses
Who hear these songs, who hear these songs
Some are so sad they're not even noticed
Like the song "easier to run"

Some sad songs include "the promise"
"Perfect" by Simple Plan
Limp's form of "Behind Blue Eyes"
Is the one I couldn't stand
Lyrics are hard to listen
Especially if they're long
I try hard not to focus
To these very very

Sad Songs (4x)

How ironic when they make you feel good
Happy yet blue, happy yet blue
Made to feel like that one Elton John tune
"Don't let the sun go down on me"
Though they're cool when it comes to listening
In PSP's, or Ipod seeds
They go well but soon become a nuisance
In TV shows, and in Movies

"I just died in your arms tonight"
Or even "Speed of Pain"
Although that "Pearl Harbor Sucks"
Song is funny yet insane
Put Aerosmith in there too
Cause of their ditty "Dream On"
I guess there is no end to
All these very very

Sad Songs(4x)

Including this song
Sad Songs
Did I forget to mention "In This River"?

Hey! I know a guy called Joel. His last ame's Wodecki, though. Anyway, nice pacing for this song. Not funny, but still good.

Big fan of the song, not so big fan of the parody. I don't think you aligned it up right, especially after the first seven lines. The verses are horrendous.
