The Lyrics

Emo is a disease...don't let it spread. Get your emo-away vaccine shot today!
You're a sensitive soul,
Just cryin' away, sappy poetry is nothing new.
You'd rather sing about love then get a girlfriend too
I'll watch you dye your hair, a darker shade of black.
You're starting to scare me,
'Cause now you're such a wuss but you used to be manly.

I think you, could be emo
You're always cryin', by your window.
With your acoustic guitar,
And your black-rimmed glasses-
A plaid shirt undone.
I think you could be emo!

Christmas comes and still you're blue,
What the fuck is wrong with you?
You're always actin' so feminine.
When I see you around, you're still the same,
Always whining like you're in pain.
You've never had a girlfriend, so how can you complain?

I think you, could be emo
But you used to be so macho!
With your acoustic guitar,
And your black-rimmed glasses-
A plaid shirt undone.
I think you could be emo!

You've listened to Dashboard too many times
Why don't ya give it a rest?
Why
Must you find
Another reason to cry?

While you're writing stupid songs,
I've been rackin' out my brain
All your whining and crying,
Man, it's driving me insane!
I've been trying to make you better,
But your only getting worse,
Now you've become so feminine,
You could trade your balls in for a purse.
Don't forget to whine about a girlfriend-
That you've never even had.
At first I thought it was really funny,
But now it's getting kinda sad.
'Cause this phase keeps gettin' older,
Tell me how long it's gonna be.
I can't wait around forever,
Or it might rub off on me!

You could be emo
Always cryin', by your window.
With your acoustic guitar,
And your black-rimmed glasses-
A plaid shirt undone.
I think you could be
You shouldn't be
You could be emo...
Oh, you could be emo(what have you done?)
You could be emo(MTV has won)
Oh, you could be emo(what have you done?)
You could be emo(a female son)
Oh, you could be emo(the damage is done)
Oh, you could be emo(what have you done?)
Oh, you could be emo(you're not the only one)
You could be emo

Yeah!

Looks like this parody has yet to be shot down by the roaming emo kids.

444, very good, especially the improv background vocals at the end. About the emo kids, went to school with a few, most were just trying to be trendy, but a few were genuinely true to their own feelings. Guess they are writing death poetry and not coming here. :)
