The Lyrics

FINALLY. After a three-month drought (mostly due to school and activities interfering) I have overcome writer's block and written a parody. Granted, it's not my Bob Dylan project...that's still in the works...but it's an idea I was kicking about for a while and eventually developed. Enjoy. (And as a disclaimer, this is NOT autobiographical by any means. As Weird Al as my witness, I will never participate in any such low-scale beauty pageants.)
Got a little red zit on my face today
Ew, I cannot go out in this way!
I still need to put on ten pounds of cream
So my face is rid of its oily gleam

I have spent fifty dollars on this new lip balm
If I don't have a limo, then I won't be calm
Though this teeny gauze dress won't be approved by Mom
Like, I'm popular—I must be the queen of prom!

Matt from chemistry asked if he'd be my date (But, uh no, he's gross)
Y'know, anyone but jocks I hate (Ooh, HE can get close!)
Though this dude can't read, like, he's really hot (Though he tends to drool)
Better him than one whose teeth do rot (Mouth ain't minty cool)

Now ol' Butch, get your wallet, you must shell out bucks
To get yourself all dressed up in a fancy tux
You may say you look dumber than a bright red duck
But if the picture clashes, we'll be out of luck!

Got elected to court, duuh, of course I would! ('Cuz I'm so darn chic)
But the other ones, well, they don't look quite as good (In fact, they all reek)
There is Alice, she's the school's major slut (Wears no underwear)
And this freaky goth girl with a weird haircut (How'd SHE get up there?!)

If these other two chicks deprive me of my crown
They will make me appear like just a brainless clown
And I spent lots of money on this sexy gown,
So I surely will earn some kind of teen renown?!

Now the big day's arrived....eek, do I look fat?
And which hairstyle doesn't look like I am a rat?
And Butch better learn quick how to slowly dance
But tonight my goal isn't just about romance...

Queen of prom!

So we're all on stage, waiting for the name (Of that lucky girl)
And she will go on to her yearbook fame (As streamers unfurl)
But a WRITE-IN vote turns out to win the crown...
It's that gay drag queen, Priscilla Brown!

So I lost to a GUY! Oh, I could lose my lunch...
And Butch now is with Alice drinking spiked-up punch
But Matt asks me to dance, and I guess it's a balm,
In his mind, I will always be the Queen of Prom!

Queen of Prom!
Queen of Prom!
Queen of Prom!
(A dude just won) Queen of Prom!
(Nerds think I'll be) Queen of Prom!
(Yet still I'm not) Queen of Prom!

After a lengthy wait, Cat has finally come out with a new parody - and it's a winner. As usual.

Now that's what I call a comeback, you're surely a contender for SOTM (too).

(SOTM) Great job with a substantial song, Cat. I loved the story telling, and the twist ending.
Phil Alexander - December 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Lovely, Cat - though I must admit I read the last letter of the title as an "n", so was expecting something different at first ;-)

(SOTM) Awesome, coulda been used in Not Another Teen Movie
Stuart McArthur - December 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) way to go with the self-deprecating wit again Cat - although I don't think you're one to look "fat in this" are you? - nice twist ending, and this could easily be a subplot in a Hollywood teen movie - 555

Pretty honest portrayal of how many American high-school girls think and act. Glad you can see through the shallowness.---MM

SOTM - You know a song is good when it's been hit by the onester among the punsters. Interesting topic and ... nice twist.

Awesome. I remember when Weird Al did this song. I like your version more. Faves: the crown/clown/gown/renown stanza and mostly everything inside a parenthesis.

(ABC) Hey, Cat. Me Squirrel. Let the fur fly. Hehe.. Seriously, this is a great parody, well paced and funny. I hope this wasn't actually drawn from personal experiences. If it is, I'm so sorry you lost out to a drag queen. What a drag. Hehe.. OK I'll stop now. Great job. 555

(Artistry) This is a parody that defines artistry. I'm jealous that you will probably win 1st place in this round.
