The Lyrics

I know I was there once...but they're just so easy to make fun of! (If you happen to be one of those people without a sense of humor, do me a favor and save your torches and pitchforks for someone much more worthwhile. This is a satire of an EXTREME stereotype of a newbie. Geez.)
as i scroll thru dis website and da humor i see
i start 2 think 2 miself, n 1der y dat can't b me?
i may not handle my grammar dat gud
but i think i can take on dese guys, knock on wud
and im seein wut dey rite, now wut are dey thinkin?
dey all rant about da prez (and it ain't abe lincoln)
da fancy words dey r usin, it is confusin
do me n my chatspeek have a lot 2 lose?
da thing dat i will rite, now wut will it b?
ya no childish bathroom humor's my specialty, d00d
constipation jokes r always funny, no wut i mean?
and da song? ms lavigne, dat kewl grrl in da punk scene

dont always get da gist, cuz im just a n00bie parodist
gud grammar i will twist, b cuz im a n00bie parodist
on poop jokes i insist, dat's da way of n00bie parodists
da FAQ i missed, who cares? im a n00bie parodist

now dis spoof i m writin, it will enlighten
all da snobs who think dat im just sum kid w/no beat
(altho syllables arent reel big 4 me)
here n there a line i leeve out, no 1 sees dese things
im a socializin kid w/myspace on my screen
but 2 send up sum songs, well dat's my biggest dream
weird al is my hero, his songs r killer
but when i finish dis, dose spoofs will look like filler, ha!
my submission's only 2 lines away
its riters block–oh no! oh no! wut will i say?
a dirty word here, and boost da grossness a lil' mo
now my work is finished, c'mon, let's go!

4 my pen name, wut shall i b called?
how bout "GreenDaySkaterBasketball?"

my hed is full of mist, a confoozing n00bie parodist
of junk my speech consists, cuz im just a n00bie parodist
(im) a 1337* enthusiast, lyk all otha n00bie parodists
my childishness persists, b cuz im a n00bie parodist

go n click da button, wait a few more hours
seein my name up dere, me it will empower!
tho i m a n00bie, no i dont need 2 worry
dey go ez on da new kids, it seems lyk dats 4 sure-y!

oh no! i got da 1s, and da people dey all diss me
"y r u doin dis song? its ancient his'try!"
but im not beat, or down n out
cuz in da box, im gonna start to argue, rant n shout, ha!

conventions i resist, just a silly n00bie parodist
snobs make me clench my fist, b cuz im a n00bie parodist
a dork who's ne'er been kissed, just a sad-sack n00bie parodist
they think i dont exist..."he 4 real, dat n00bie parodist?"

oh man, y was dis spoof such a bomb?
hope i have more luck w/"Stacy's Mom"...
*pronounced "leet." "w/" is an abbreviation of "with," and "lil'" should be pronounced as 2 syllables in this case.

Thanks a lot for parodying one of my favourite songs! Well done though. Great effort. Keep this up.

Yo, three fives for yo' rhymes, I read it three times, without missin' lines and didn't give it fines.

Well, Cat, I Don't Know (and I promise you I will "Never Know") this OS. But this was a VERY funny read. Isn't it funny how much WORK it is to be that Stupid? And yet for some folks it just seems to come SO Naturally....don'tcha envy them? ~ ~ ~
Cat - June 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks everyone! =) And Paul, I never imagined you as a rap guy, either...but everyone, remember: If you can't bring yourself to listen to the song, lyric sheets are your friend.

Cat!!! You really nailed the talk. Did you make a list of the comments from the n00bs or something. DKTOS, but it was really funny, so I gave you 5's, d00d(ette) : )

I loved this, "1337 enthusiast" and all. Fives for you!

Sometimes, Cat, I think you are lying about your age -- admit it, you're really a 35-year-old professional parody writer.

I do know TOS, and this was VERY funny, Cat. I did have to dock you a point on pacing though for missing the last short chorus, and for a few awkward spots in the other choruses. Too bad there isn't a 465 voting option.

465? I'll put mine in for a 4.8.7, thank you very much! A bit iffy on pacing, and the '1337-speak' does give you a huge migraine, but that was freakin' genius. 5 to 1 on this being in the June SOTM! :-P
Stuart McArthur - June 27, 2006 - Report this comment
whoa, Cat! I remember you saying you were going to take this on, and this is fantastic - yo got some talent girlfriend - hard to read,because of all the inspired spelling but definitely worth the ride - 555

$0T[\/] - I wouldn't consider myself to be a haxx0r but I pretty much understand all of your 1337-speak ... and I ph3@r ever trying this OS. Nice roast of n00bs.
Paul Robinson - July 10, 2006 - Report this comment
Cat, it's even hard for me to even LOOK at lyric's sheets on Rap song OS stuff. I'm sure it's not ALL insipid garbage but I couldn't prove that by any that I've heard to date. You'll have to settle for "Very Funny Read" from me on this, I just don't have any time at all for looking up Rap stuff ~ ~ ~

This was amazing! I loved how you wrote it all in chatroom lingo. That was sweet.... Heck I can't even write like that if I tried...
Rick C - July 25, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Still super.
Red Ant - July 26, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above, and also great job on catching the not-so-obvious rhymes (talkin'/walkin'/chalk) with "usin'/confusin'/lose", among others.

(SOTM) wow, I forgot about this one - that's priceless, Cat - I'm getting weary of site-specific parody themes, but this one was so well done :-)

SOTM...having left my English to Chatroom/Chatroom to English Dictionary at home by my nightstand, I had a hard time with some this, Cat...; ) Still the subject matter is hilarious, along with a very difficult OS...nice job!

(ABC3) Already commented, but want to add that very few parodists write "in character" as well as you do!

(ABC3N) yep, this even better than I remember it - I love the thinkin/LIncoln couplet, and all the kewl spelling n00b! - I guess you're now officially de-n00bed now you're in your second year here, Cat
