The Lyrics

An idea to write
I grab a pad
write down silly stuff
that's in my head
A parody
sent to AmIRight
Hope for some votes
fives would be nice
though, I realize

That I can't make you vote me
if you won't
You can't know an original
if you just don't
Although, I worked hard
and spent several hours
I know you could ignore
or react so sour
and not vote
yeah, I know
that I can't make you vote me
if you won't

Through day and night
I'll check to see
but I'll see no votes
for my parody
Then, the day is gone
still no vote in sight
And I'll sigh again
but again, I'll try
and I won't change how I write

Though, I can't make you vote me
if you won't
You can't think a song's funny
if you just don't
Although, I worked hard
and spent several hours
I know you could ignore
or react so sour
and not vote
yeah, I know
that I can't make you vote me
if you won't

I had to vote and prevent this from being prophetic...=) I think we've all felt this way...keep trying! I loved "you can know an original/if you just don't" Great sub!

Thanks Arwen.

I couldn't help but notice the title is technically grammatically incorrect (it should be I can't make you vote FOR me) since I majored in English. Nonetheless, a well written parody! :)
