The Lyrics

This is not directed towards anyone in particular, and isn't really meant to be voted but to stress that if you don't show interest in others' works they probably won't show any in yours. Apologies for the overuse of the word "comment".
What does this word mean?
Read your song today
You saw mine the same
Comments we do like
On the tunes we write
What else should it be?

You give ones?
You give ones you might get ones*
Think it sucks?
Well tough luck...!

Foul play?

Then there's always a few
Seemingly obtuse
'I got just one vote
Not a comment wrote'
Here is what I say
Comment for f***k's sake!
Some might never learn
Wonder why none comment on their parodies

What we want
Comment's are what we all want
You give none
You get none....

You're too
Don't care?

Oh - well - too - bad

Guess no votes is what you get
Not a single comment left
(repeat above 2 lines 9 more times for outro)
copyright 2005+ Red Ant *Based on a few "1s wars" I've seen lately. I do not give 111 votes.

I agree with the message. It was good that you added that you do not give 1-1-1's . 5's
carol - December 15, 2005 - Report this comment
three 5's for an excellent message.

555, very good in regards to the message, this you let me know about in a PM before(I know it's not about me, though). So I got more involved in the voting process than I used too. I still have to catch up on the performers index too. =) Oh, I almost forgot, I have two ideas for the song that you pick for me from the list I showed you.

Might one of those wars include me and viva la spatula? 555. And I happen to give out 111's occasionaly, but I always comment. My theory is this... If it's bad, it's bad, and if it's good, it's good. If you get 111's, don't throw a fit and act like an emo freak. Just accept it and learn to do better. If you get 555's all of the time, keep it up and don't stop doing whatever makes that happen. It's pretty simple.

Huff, I was actually thinking about another person who posted many a right-wing political piece a while back that drew 111 votes and heated comments to no end. The few who left their names and voiced disagreement (to put it mildly) had several of their back works triple 1 voted, though I do not know for sure if it was the author who got slammed repeatedly who did it. But yes, now that you mention it I have noticed the exchange of a few uno-bombs between you and VLS, though I would consider that more of a skirmish.....

I can understand a bit on the 111 vs 555 thing, it reminds me of a comedy show I saw a few weeks ago where the comedian was actually asked to leave before the routine was finished, something I had never seen before. But, I will point out that person made me laugh and I was hoping the skit wouldn't end. Others in the audience of 200 or so laughed too, it wasn't like everyone was dead.

I guess where many authors have the problem with 111 votes is that pacing IMO is very rarely a 1 (perhaps fewer than one in 500 parodies paces nothing like TOS), and many here detest triple 1 votes for that reason, explained or not. I recall you getting a bit annoyed on "Slack Off" for the 111 votes despite good/right-on pacing. I suspect you wouldn't have had they been 411 or 511, etc., respecting the pacing. Anyways, to conclude a rather long winded comment I enjoy your work and look foward to the next one.

I'm with you 100%, there are some guys who just don't like to leave a comment, and they are always trying to mess up the voting by voting 111 just so you won't get perfect 5's,that just piss me up, by the way this parody sucks 111. !just Kidding!!!! 5's :)

Missed this one last week. Allow me to give this parody its 8th perfect 5-5-5 vote. ;)

Does anyone have a problem if someone votes 555s without leaving a comment? I often do that. Most of the time by the time I see works some sly devil(s) have taken all the witty clever comments.

Thanks "parody man", Serafina, and PMS. PMS, I can understand the anonymous 555 if what you wanted say has already been taken, though I always appreciate the time someone takes to comment, even if it's "what so-and-so said".
