The Lyrics

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc has signed Stallone to write a Rocky VI screenplay with an update to the story of the scrappy Philadelphia boxer who rises from a club fighter to champion of the world, gets knocked down, then rises again, an MGM spokeswoman said yesterday.-The AP
After the ruins
After the wreckage
Stallone's going to make the same mistakes this time
We are the film fans
The cinefile nation
We are the ones whose bucks you pine

And I wonder when you are ever gonna change
Making sequel after sequel till no numbers remain

We don't need another Rocky
We don't need another Rambo
All we want are better films
Than Rhinestone

Looking for entertainment
We can rely on
There's gotta be something better out there
Great cine action
That day is coming
Better than the latest Jason/Freddy Nightmare

And I wonder when you are ever gonna change
Making sequel after sequel till no numbers remain

All the film fans say
We don't need another Rocky
We don't need another Rambo
All we want are better films
Than Rhinestone

So what will you do next Sly?
Fake actors leave only a mark
Will your legacy shine like a light?
Or fade out in the dark
The Italian Stallion is dead

We don't need another Rocky
We don't need another Rambo
All we want are better films
Than Rhinestone

Great parody and clever idea. Just don't mess with Freddy vs. Jason! That was an awesome movie. Saw it three times at the theater and pre-ordered it on DVD. Maybe they can make Jason Vs. Rambo. Actually that might be pretty cool.

Just saw "Rocky Balboa", and it was as anticlimactic as I feared, strictly a remake from the other extreme of the career (See George Foreman wincing?). This could have been better, with some necessary rhyming and more changes from the original song.
