The Lyrics

This is my first go at writing a parody so I picked something easy. I'd really like some constructive feedback. (if you say it sux then tell me why). I'm Australian so I used a few Australian references in the lyrics, which I'll explain. John Howard (also known as Little Johnny) is the Prime Minister of Australia. He does whatever George Bush tells him to do. CNNNN is an Australian comedy show, which is a send up of CNN. Craig is one of the show's anchors.
George Bush got run over by a semi
After his press conference on T.V.
I know the USA's in jeopardy
But I'm finding it quite hard to hide my glee

He'd been talking to his country
Wearing a tie of bright red
One minute he was just an eyesore
The next he was on the road completely dead

When the reporters found him
Lieing squashed flat on the ground
The truck was parked around the corner
And near the corpse no skid marks could be found

George Bush got run over by a semi
After his press conference on T.V.
I know the USA's in jeopardy
But I'm finding it quite hard to hide my glee

Now the world is in a crisis
Our biggest hypocrite has gone
John can no longer kiss his butt
And we must endure a song fron Elton John

CNNNN will have a field day
I can predict the entire show
And almost hear Craig's fake crying
As he tells us how Old Bushy entered Limbo

George Bush got run over by a semi
After his press conference on T.V.
I know the USA's in jeopardy
But I'm finding it quite hard to hide my glee

Now they're on alert for terrorists
Could they be behind the crime
Johnny's about to point his finger
And say Osama won't get away this time

All the people want to kill the driver
He's being held in custody
But don't blame it on the truckie
'Cause I'm the one who paid him his high fee

Pacing-wise I stumbled in a few places; if this is your first parody it's quite good though. LOVED the Elton John line; otherwise just pretty funny. Also you could vary the chorus, like for one chorus replace the second line with "Flat as the economy is he"; that sort of thing(not that I'd necessarily agree with it but that's beside the point).

Is "lying" spelled differently in Australia?

I can't wait till MP sees this one, are you related? I don't agree with the sediment of the parody, but "Grandma got run over" is always a fun read. Nice choice of tune.

spellcheck. yeah yeah i can't spell. it's not my fault i'm the generation that grew up with computers, spell checkers and sms slang. thanx all for your advice and i'm pretty sure i'm not related to any of the other writers.

Whoa, boy. First of all, though anything that makes Bush look bad is, well, common, and desirable, I thought this one was a little weak. Nothing personal. Second, I already did this one. In fact, it might've been the first one I ever put up on this site: "Dubya Got Run Over by a Reindeer." Third, this parody author is not related to me, though it does look like something my sister would write. Fourth (You can tell I'm a Clinton fan: You ever notice how Bill likes to number things he says?) Fourth, I don't think Elton John would write a Bush tribute. Especially since Bush was less qualified to be President of the United States than Princess Diana. Or Marilyn Monroe, for that matter, who probably slept more nights in the White House than Mr. Always On Vacation. Fifth, "lying" is spelled differently in Australia. It's spelled "John Howard." Finally, good call by Wild Man: "Sediment" is not only funny but apt in this case.

It was very funny but it needs some extra words added in so it measures with the melody, over its a good song for like parties or something. It's a good start for someone who's never done a parody. (and personaly its better than most ive seen)

Michael: ==== Minus the spelling problems, Michael, it does sound like something you wrote, the same level of immaturity, only I think this author is only a kid, what's your excuse? In addition, you took another opportunity to self promote and tell yet another parody writer how you are the Mr. Parody Man on the block, you set him in his place real good, hot shot! You say the content just by being a bush bash was desirable, and I suppose that is true. Coming up on what 11 months after the election your sorry arse lost, you still need to feed the bashing thing in order to still avoid your loser self, your loser pride and face the facts. Sure, his first parody may have been weak in your eyes, but what does that mean, you are equally as childish, you only spell a bit better. You hae several weak pieces, only you would be the last to admit it as you seem to be on a continual growth pattern to a higher and higher ego tirp with each day that passes. Pretty soon you will such an over-the-top snob without a cause you may take it on the road, and then, sadly, reality will strike and your entire world of esteem gained solely on your average to down right childish sounding parodies and your bashing buddy will come crashing down on you and then what? You should really slow down on the ego tripping and do the kinder thing, if it is in you, and give the comrade in disrespect and hate some positive reinforcements without slipping in facts that make sure the newbie writers know you are the king of parodies and will always be better than them. It may help your imagine look a bit more real….. oh, but that is not what you are going for huh, never mind then.
