The Lyrics

From time to time, I have contemplated a Steve Dahl imitation a la Disco Demolition Night, including sharing my ideas on AmIRight. Originally it was to have been a Disney Demolition Night, targeting Disney Channel music and its fellow-travellers such as Bieber and One Direction ("Do You Think I'm Disney," based on "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart). Later, I considered taking aim at just Kidz Bop ("Kidz Bop Sucks--They All Scream at You," based on "Holy Wars--The Punishment Due" by Megadeth), as they just rehash songs poorly (to put it charitably), and this evolved the concept into a Kidz Bop Demolition Night. But when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, I came to the idea of a whole tour of Kidz Bop CD and memorabilia destruction--only not blowing them up at MLB parks as on 12 July 1979 at old Comiskey, but helping out communities represented in the summer-collegiate and lower minor leagues while demolishing the merchandise. In particular, I thought of former minor-league cities and towns for the tour. Furthermore, I have been watching more clips of an old I.T.V. series called Sharpe about a fictional officer in the British army during the Napoleonic conflict, and I've been listening to an arrangement of the OS (a British folk song from that time) that featured on the show prominently on repeat. The version of the OS I'm using comes from a soundtrack album called The Music of Sharpe. This explains the credit to John Tams, who sang on the album. As for my parody, it is the 121st such offering on mine on AmIRight and, again, my 2nd anti-Kidz Bop anthem.
Through forty albums and then some,
None of the tracks I dare to hum.
Their screams my ears have bled all day;
Razor and Tie (1) must go away!

Oh! the kidz (2) have greatly maimed
The songs that were already lame
From C.H.R.'s (3) gross overplay;
Razor and Tie must go away.

When Kidz Bop's hashing out a cover,
I cannot help but ask: "Why bother?"
The lust for cash led them astray;
Razor and Tie must go away.

Oh! the kidz deserve careers
Bleeding terroristic ears
To get response at Gitmo Bay;
Razor and Tie must go away.

(Instrumental)

If I should die when summer ends,
I will not have to just pretend
'Bout Kidz Bop discs blown up today;
Razor and Tie must go away.

Oh! the kidz have been no go
From "Bye Bye Bye" (4) to "Old Town Road." (5)
Their flawed idea stays the same;
Razor and Tie must go away.

Let us rebuke Big Music's whims--
Kidz Bop included with its sins--
At every minor league game day;
Razor and Tie must go away.

Oh! the kidz are not to blame;
But corporations, be ashamed!
For travesties like this, you'll pay;
Razor and Tie must go away.
(1) Razor and Tie created the Kidz Bop series, unleashing two decades of torture on discerning eardrums. (2) Intentional misspelling in mockery of the franchise. (3) Contemporary hit radio, AKA top-40. (4) 'NSYNC song on Kidz Bop I. (5) Lil Nas X song on Kidz Bop XL.
