The Lyrics

Basically, a parody about my bad parodies. The ones I look at again and think "what the hell was I thinking? It's bad enough I wrote it, but why did I then submit it?" So, since it's mostly about me, it may not get any votes or comments, but I'm cool with that.
A year ago, I discovered Amiright
and it's an awesome place
And writing's something that I like to do
my first was 'Christmas Day'
But there's been songs I never should have sent
I should have thrown away

'Cause now, all my parodies are at my author's page
and there are many bad ones, and I'm ashamed
And anyone could find them, and I know that they won't smile
But they will discover that they're lame
yeah, they will see that they're lame

Songs about a year, kids and booze
and of course, food and farts
And a few about personal despair
and having an ass of lard
And ain't it kinda sad when a song bites
when you thought you tried hard?

But some I wrote too fast, spelling errors, bad pacing
or too many original lines, or just sickening
The worst one that I ever wrote was a song called '****** *****'
I censored that because the song is lame
it is just so lame
it is just too lame
mmm, nuh-uh
so, I'm not saying it's name

Ow!

I hope I'm here for a long time
and get real good someday
I guess that I will send this parody now
and hope it isn't lame

(sung to the guitar outro)
Oh, but I guess it could be

I know the feeling Billy Boyd. I also made several early on that now I go "WTF was I thinking?" But, at the time, they looked good. Aside from the song names this parody applies to more than just you.

Thanks, Red Ant.

I have to say, this is a great parody - I'm glad you recognize your shame in the theme of how people find other songs you write on this site can be "lame". Sometimes mine got written in haste and didn't turn out as good as I'd have preferred. I just felt like seeing if anyone else did a parody of this original - because that was my original parody "I Won't Tell No One You're Gay"! Go check it out if you can; at the time I submitted it, Chuck did not give me the option to authorize comments, otherwise I'd love to hear your opinion of my very first parody on amiright.com. That's the only reason why you can't. Check out some of my other parodies and see if they seem lame. Some all-time "non-lame" favorites I wrote include "Will I Have Money Tomorrow", "Hang Up Your Cell Phone Now", and "It's a tough world after all". "No Drugs" is half-lame in my opinion; I'm not too ashamed.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
