The Lyrics

Lip syncing is not an acceptable thing for a professional artist to do. So this pokes fun at the two most famous occurances of lip syncing that I can think of, Milli Vanilli and Ashlee Simpson.
Intro: We are gonna fake it
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

Verse 1:We can’t sing any notes so
We will lip sync and then go
No one will know
And we’ll get rich
We’ll take those Grammy’s then leave
That is the trick up our sleeve
But you caught us
Ain’t that a bitch?

Chorus: We are gonna fake it
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

Verse 2:Today I am performing
But I got sick this morning
Oh no I can’t sing, I know what to do
I need some relaxation
Got acid refluxation
The CD skipped, my career is through

Bridge: Oh, oh
We’ll try (yeah)
We’ll see (yeah)
Lip sync (yeah)
can’t sing
No!

Chorus: We are gonna fake it
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

Chorus: We are gonna fake it
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

That’s gay!

(Pretend guitar solo)

Bridge: Oh, oh
We’ll try (yeah)
We’ll see (yeah)
Lip sync (yeah)
can’t sing
No!

Chorus: We are gonna fake it
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

Chorus: We are gonna fake it
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

Just you try and stop us
We are gonna fake it (bring it!)
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
(You’re all so very gullable)
We are gonna fake it, once again
(Now drop and get our Grammy’s)

We are gonna fake it
(Oh, CD’s)
Yeah! We are gonna fake it
We are gonna fake it, once again

You sure didn't "fake" this parody! LOL! ;-D Yes, and it does make you wonder how many of the heavy metal musicians really sang, I once got a comment from someone I can't off hand remember their name, but he/she said "Those heavy metal rockers don't sing, they SCREAM!" and there is nothing "fake" about that is there!? LOL! :-D Anyway, Awesome parody, I also love TOS of this too, so it definitely deserves a 555! ;-)

Blayde - You'd be surprised how many top professional performers (from Heavy Metalists to opera's Luciano Pavoratti) actually lip-synched their recordings rather than sang for public performances. Your parody, however, is genuine! Merry Christmas! ;D

Honestly I harbor now anger towards any artist who has lip synced. I understand sometimes a person just can't sing, but the fact is they CAN sing. Milli Vanilli were fakes. But really it just makes the song funnier.

Only thing that would make this better would be if it was a parody of an Ashlee Simpson song!

Chorus variety would livened this up more, but, this is an earlier work from you.

(Artistry) Really? "That's gay!"? Really now? That aside, this was pretty good, although Agri's right on the lack of chorus variation. That and it didn't really elaborate on why lip-syncing sucks outside of recounting two infamous cases. Pacing was spot-on, though it's not really that hard with Twisted Sister. Yeah, not one of your better ones, I'm afraid, but still decent for what it is.

Nicely done! I love the original song and you skewered the two most famous cases of lip syncing (although now I guess it's totally cool to do so thanks to Jimmy Fallon and LL Cool J's show).
