The Lyrics

Peter and I have been doing a few Garbage parodies (the band, not content, hehe) recently. I decided to poke fun at myself for doing the same Garbage songs he has. This also pokes fun at using the copy/paste tool too much when writing parodies.
[intro]

I'm a lazy guy
With ideas short
I just leech off everyone
Next is you of course
What monkey sees
The monkey does

No relief is near
Don't believe it's lame
Just believe it's flattery
Or you will say-ay-ay-ay-ay,

That copy-cat!
That copy-cat!
All my songs he takes them
All my songs he takes them


What drives me on? (what drives me on?)
Only Heaven knows (only Heaven knows)
The echoed lines within this song
Well I can copy those!

Don't believe in thought
Don't believe in brains
I believe in just one thing
It's copy/ pay-ay-ay-ay-aste!

The copy-cat!
The copy-cat!
All your songs I take them
All your songs are taken

[solo]

No relief is near..
Don't believe I'm lame..
Just believe that your next move
I'll do the sa-ame..!

The copy-cat!
You copy that?
All I see I take it
And I copy/haste it!

The copy-cat!
I copied that!
Sep'rate lines are hard work
Diff'rent rhymes are art work

The copy-cat!
The copy-cat!
When I'm feelin' lazy
Use that cut 'n pastin'



The copy-cat!

Brilliant, 5. Personally, I think there should be more Garbage parodies. Because I find it amusing how parodies to Garbage songs are not usually Garbage. Eh-heh.

I like the OS, and this parody was a fun read. All 5's.

Thanks AFW, Carol, Blethar and Billy Boyd. Blethar, if you check back a few days you'll find 3 more Garbage parodies that you should find amusing (I hope!).

I don't know the original, but it's pretty funny. I do the same thing.... Well, more with the copy/paste thing.

You still have much to learn about political correctnes young padwan, there's no such thing as being a copy-cat, you have "been inspired" and your work is "a tribute" etc, but since this is parody site you get away with your honesty anyway, so 5s.

Thanks Dominic and Peter-oh, I was "inspired" by your works and also MP3s, which of course I promptly deleted after evaluating your parodies and making mine. ;-)
