Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I have finally done it! I have parodied one from the master of all parodies himself, "Weird Al" Yankovic! He is not only my inspiration, but he also is the reason that I am even here, and doing parodies in the first place! My parody is taken from the theme song, from his movie "UHF" in fact it's a parody of the song "UHF" mine is called "You Tube." They certainly put a lot on You Tube don't they? So I thought, Since Weird Al Yankovic did a lot of parodies in the movie "UHF" like Indiana Jones, Rambo, etc. and You Tube follows so closely to his "UHF" movie, why not spoof both of them? :-D Great, clever, and funny idea, huh?
Bust up your remote control
Throw out your TV set
Fire up your modem
It’s time to get on the net
Don’t you know that they control all the bandwidth
They control all the baud rate, too
Gonna stick your face to the screen, with super glue
That’s what you’re gonna do now.

Just create your channel
Wait for your hits
They put it all on the You Tube
Do something stupid
Then go and upload it
They put it all on the You Tube
Don’t worry ‘bout your homework
Forget about your wife
Just tape what you want to
Make You Tube your life
They put it all, they put it all, they put it all on the You Tube

If you must leave home, then go play tag in the street
Bring your home video camera
Makes taping an easier feat
You just switch on your best personal computer
Crank the pixels as high as they go, yeah
Then watch all the clips until your head explodes
There’s no end of the road, now

Just check your channel
Rake in those hits
They put it all on the You Tube
Do something stupid
Then go and upload it
They put it all on the You Tube
Don’t worry ‘bout your homework
Forget about your wife
Download what you want to
Make You Tube your life
They put it all, they put it all, they put it all on the You Tube

You can stay up all day
You can stay up all night
You can watch it just like you are rude
You can sit and watch everything that’s on the screen
Until your eyes melt like ice cubes
Well, yeah!

Look at your channel
Look at those hits!
You put it all on the You Tube
Did something stupid
Then you uploaded it
You put it all on the You Tube
Didn’t worry ‘bout your homework
Forgot about your wife
You just upload what you want to
Made You Tube your life
You put it all, You put it all, you put it all on the You Tube

They put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)
You put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)
They put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)
You put it all on the You Tube (you put it all)

You put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)
They put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)
You put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)
They put it all on the You Tube (they put it all)

They put it all (they put it all) on the You Tube (they put it)
(They put it) they put (they put it) it all (they put it) on the You Tube (they put it all)
They put it all on the You Tube (the You Tube)

(Repeat and fade….)

(Computer monitor and modem explode)
I wouldn't even dream of forgetting to give you all the You Tube link to the original song "UHF", If I did forget, I'd hit myself in the head with a mallet! CLUNK!! "OUCH!!" LOL! :-D That would be a "hit" on You Tube a lot of it's viewers would not want to miss I'm sure! ;-D Anyway, here is the link, - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQGIa8xOmjg - I could use some "hits" here too, for this very important song, in the way of comments and / or votes, so "let me have some" ;-)

The first You Tube link does take you to the song “UHF” but whoever recorded it, just recorded it directly from their TV to their computer, using a computer microphone. So here is another link that will take you to another clip of the song, but this one was imported into the user’s computer directly and is much easier to understand - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmrZIcuxVW0

JIN - An accurate description of Youtube. Also, parodying a Weird Al song is more difficult than most people think. Tuning in with three hits of five. ;D

Wild, hi...i like the fact that you kept your own rhyme scheme consistent...that is a hallmark of good parody writing. I wish though you gave this more satirical bite, by describing some stupid things that could have, or did, appear on the Tube. One way to do that would have been changing the chorus, giving opportunities for more humor. The more you write, and the more you read on the site, the better you will get! 533

OMR: Thank you for your comment and vote. Yes, parodying a song from Weird Al Yankovic is very hard, and people should get more credit when they do it, than they do get. agrimorfee: I agree that more humor could have been used when writing my parody, but what I think happened was, when I was writing it, I was thinking of the original "UHF" song, and how it didn't actually speak of what "UHF" actually had everything of, or as the line went "We got it all on UHF" the "all" was never truly defined in the song, and I think that is what made me not think to define it myself. But I will hold your thought for any of Weird Al's songs that I may parody in the future, and also, thank you also for your vote and comment! it is well accepted! :-) -WCJ-
