The Lyrics

Um. . .Everyone knows I don't do this type of comedy, I don't like using an artist's song against themselves, but I really could not find a single Thin Lizzy song I didn't hate, so I had no choice but to slay them badave.com is where my humor home is!
Thanks to artistry I heard a band
They had got me so dang bored
In spite I write this song late a night
Simply Loathe their simple chords

I tried some songs, made me dizzy
It's at this one I took aim
Who nominated this Thin Lizzy
'Cause they are driving me insane

Yes it was Suzi I was fearing
Skyhooks left me in fright
oh The Who was a tall order
but only Lizzy made me cry

You know it's not like me to slay
Artists that I parody
when it's worse than Edmund Fitzgerald
It's quite hard to be funny

Hehe, Dave...your Thin Lizzy=my Incubus. I haven't listened yet, but I'm assuming the best. Nice work under pressure!

Thanks Agri, Yeah, the rhyme scheme in the first verse was so weird but I stuck to it (all of it) as painful as it was to listen, this song believe it or not is 4 minutes long, but the lyrics are done at like 1:30 of the song. . .Thin Lizzy. . .Thanks

Lizzy made me dizzy and pissed me too.

I would normally take off points for it being such a short song, but when I only have to listen to a minute and a half of Thin Lizzy, I thank you!!! Nice bit of Red (r)Anting here.

Song satires are a favorite of mine. Love the sentiment, but I don't think your heart was quite in this one, and it's really Artistry-specific. Still, not bad, and thankfully it is a short OS. =)

Thanks Matty:) Red Ant--yeah this one was intentionally Artistry Specific, for once I can guarantee I will not be recording a parody of mine, I really dislike Thin Lizzy that much:)

(Artistry) And only 122 more to go! Your ennui really showed in this one.

(Artistry) This was very funny, now that I have heard it. That goodness it was relatively short!

(Artistry) Short but sweet. 555 Thin Lizzy albums on the fire.

You kinda took the same tack I did for this band. Actually, I don't think this band is quite a bad as we are all saying. They have "chops". It's just that the writing is lame.

Glad you don't hink so Invisible Boy--they are the worst 'band' I've ever had to sit down and listen to--bar none--so I think they ARE as bad as we are all saying. . .when I would rather hear Fergalicious--something is wrong.
