The Lyrics

This is one of only a few ideas of mine that's been fully fleshed out. Like Weird Al's "(This Song's Just) Six Words Long," this parody picks on the repitition of the OS. I hope no-one's taken this idea yet; I was afraid to check...(And I DELIBERATELY went silly in the 2nd verse.) I hope you like it.
When I sing it, I'll just wing it, when I sing it

CHORUS:
I sing one verse
And sing it once again
I'm never gonna change the words!
[repeat three times]

This is the easy way
This is the easy way

I sing some simple lines
I sing some little lines
I sing some silly lines
Then I repeat the lines
I sing a song that has very little to it
It's ridiculous, but I still wanna do it
Oh, Jonny Boy, Jonny Boy, Jonny Boy

[Chorus]

Piddling your time away
Piddling your time away

I drink a soda drink
I drink an orange drink
I drink a water drink
No alcoholic drinks
You may think I am in need of some shock therapy
Wait a min - what's the point of this here parody??
Don't nag on me, commentators

[Same chorus - What? You expected it to change?]

[Instrumental section]

[Chorus w/ "Piddling your time away" in background]
(P.S. The "Don't nag on me" line isn't meant to be offensive) I would also like for you to read (and comment on) my other submissions: --"Stand, And Then Play Some More Wii" --"Jessie's Girl, Part 2" --"Videogamin' Rhapsody" (The last one's under the name "Jonaphantom") Copyright, Jonathan S. / Jonaphantom, 2007

Clever parody, so 5-5-5 for you! Is this your first one?
Jonathan S. - April 05, 2007 - Report this comment
Um, no. It's my fourth, but, thanks.

What was your first one, then?

Beautiful satire of a song that deserved it. Normally I'd be a bit picky about the repeated parts, but I think it worked in your favor this time. 555

To Dylan Baranski: Though it wasn't the first I WROTE, the first one I sent in was "Videogamin' Rhapsody," which was one of my early works. (Read the post-parody comments.) To Red Ant: Thanks. I was kind of worried about what people would think of me using the same chorus.

Jonathan S, the next time you leave an ugly comment in another parodist's name, you are going to find yourself on the wrong end of an IP ban. Do I make myself clear?

Website Editor: I just saw your 7-17-07 comment today---do not understand your uncalled for nastiness/(THREAT) towards Mr. Jonathan S. After looking around amiright website did NOT notice any (Quote End Quote) ugly "from" comments that would be(

concretely/absolutely/positively) provable to have been from Mr. S. I question your monitorability-are you purporting yourself to be psychic? I DID see nasty/UGLY comments TO Mr. S.-slamming him, instead of "commenting" on & rating his parody work. Did you, MR. Editor, THREATEN them????

Maybe you should consider letting someone else editor the webpage, someone not so quick to "jump to a (non-provable) conclusion". An editor that would get after those that slam/attack the parody writers ALL,not just the ones you obviously have taken a dislike to-

when the site is SUPPOSED to be operated as a place for viewers to "comment" & "rate" parody songs. It is NOT a hate crime site--"hate crime" is the category your "threat" to Mr. S. put you in, Mr. Editor.

"Hate crime"? you make me laugh! My "7-17-07" comment? Since that was, oh, over a year ago, you might want to elaborate. If you mean my 7-16-07 comment on this parody, then I stand by what I wrote 100%. I do not purport myself to be a psychic, but as a website editor I can see things that most people cannot... IP addresses for starters. In three years of editing, I have used the moniker "Website Editor" perhaps half a dozen times, and only for the most grevious of offenses (including plagiaries and "fake name" comments). The reason you didn't see the inappropriate comment is because I immediately removed it, as I do with all innapropriate comments (infrequent as they are). As for letting someone else edit my sections, I'd be more than willing to let a person who is responsible edit my 15 or so sections on a daily basis. Are you volunteering for that unpaid, underappreciated workload? I didn't think so. As for a "threat", it takes a serious amount of epic fail for me to make such a PROMISE. Fortunately, the person to which I originally addressed my promise has straightened out and become a productive contributor/commentor of this site.

By the way, "website viewer", what did you think about this parody? In your zeal to slam me, you failed to mention anything about this parody, a parody I praised over a year ago.
