The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
[Salesman]
The products are crappy
I really don't mind
I just want your money, yeah
I've got a great smile
So sign on the dotted line
Now read it and weep forever
What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be mine mine mine
'Cause I've got one hand in your pocket
And the other one is raiding your charge card

[Exec]
I'm a major employer
Of thousands of working stiffs
A darling of Wall Street, oh yeah
I make record profits
By pushing the paychecks down
I won't say I'm sorry, baby
And what it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be mine mine mine
'Cause I've got one hand in your pocket
And the other one is cutting your benefits

[People]
And what it all comes down to
Is that we've gotta get it all figured out real quick
'Cause there are hands down in our pockets
And there's nothing left, not even a thin dime

[Politician]
I got reelected
I'm back in the House
I'm doing my civic duty
I sign my own raises
I go on expensive trips
All paid by the public, baby
And what it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
That I've got one hand in your pocket
And the other one is signing a big tax bill

[Singer]
And what it all comes down to my friends, yeah
Is that everything's just a line, line, line
To get a hand down in our pockets
And keep pulling out the bulk of our hard-earned cash

Well put statement of consumerism. But "what it all comes down to" in terms of this Artistry Contest, is that it is VERY hard to not recycle Alanis' OS lyrics.

Lots of hands and pockets this round. I like the play on words you had here but what it all comes down to is that I thought this parody was fine, fine, fine but not really your best. It just not a topic that I could really get my mind wrapped around being hilarious, not really political but big business has the same kind of feeling.

This song seems popular for this round.

(Artistry) I guess you could call that getting swindled and pimped, could call that getting tricked by a business (I love Macklemore). Pretty good parody here, not knockout like your usual work, but still a solid parody. 555!

I agree with Grim that with this particular topic, it's kind of hard not to use lyrics from the OS. This was a really nice commentary, however it was more true than funny (which is still good, just didn't leave me howling).

I liked the subtle title change to make the new meaning of the song. Worked well wit the lyrics.

Artistry...Well paced and written...but the subject matter is so spot on that I'm kind of depressed now. And I feel poorer. ; )
Blaydeman - April 23, 2013 - Report this comment
(Artistry) I liked it a lot. It has that , "It's funny, cuz it's true" feeling to it.
