The Lyrics

I feel like I should put up a disclaimer. Although this could be seen as a depressing or angry song, I would like to see someone sing this at a karaoke bar and not get food thrown at them. I wrote this song as a response to what 2018 has become for America, memes and all. At some point, it might create a sense of comfort to live as a NPC (non-playable character), and avoid stirring the pot. Nobody seems to be right. I hope nobody gets triggered by this song, b/c I see myself as an independent person. (or as close to center that can seen)
When you’re told that’s wrong
Every night, the days are just the same
And you know your life is rough
That’s ok, NPC

Just go with, the flow
At school or at work
Cause everyone’s a jerk, most times

Most times it is everywhere
Makes it hard for me to care
When you think that love is real (Metoo)
(Metoo) But you just can’t seal the deal (Metoo)
These relationships are tough
That’s ok, NPC

‘Cause everyone’s a jerk
Where does this nonsense end
Everyone’s a jerk
At Trump’s command, oh, great

At Trump’s command
That’s the scapegoat to blame
So, so, so, it’s such a shame

To as-sim-il-ate, today’s world
Be born with a thick skin
With tech-nolo-gy TMI, Not ok, NPC

Well, everyone’s a jerk, most times
At school or at work
And everyone’s a jerk, most times
And everyone’s a jerk, most times

So, get out, get out
Get out, get out
Get out, get out
Get out, get out
Everyone’s a jerk

Leave, Leave, Leave, leave find a new home
I have already completed the songs related to the S.A.E.M. side (The Wall parody). After I see my latest entry posted, I intend to post the remaining tracks, hopefully by the end of the year.

If there is a video circulating on Youtube of someone singing this in a karaoke bar, make sure the title includes "Parody Karaoke". Heck, even make it a #parodykaraoke if it already does not exist. Also, mention my name for credit and you will get an automatic subscriber from my alias raysherman.

I like the sentiment, and hey, screw anyone who thinks different. j/k, 5's. Also, bon mots for taking on a project, I did a couple of them a while back and found it very rewarding.

There are people in this world who do not love their fellow man, and I HATE people like that!

Hm, "NPC" is a new phrase to me. Seems to me that in the context of "person who relies on the internet for their facts or speech", it could apply to both pro and con Trump folks. (NYT has a good article about this --https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/16/us/politics/npc-twitter-ban.html ) In any event, nice job!

Hello. I decided that it was never too early for a face reveal. Yesterday, I performed this song at a Karaoke Bar called Chainsaws. First time trying this out, but I did not memorize the lyrics, so I was looking down on the printout. Crowd got into it with the Trump shot.

^^I've performed a capella renditions of my parodies at coffeehouse open mike nights--both venues closed soon afterwards. Hopefully this will not occur with you. (consider producing YouTube videos--but be very aware of how you use music in regards to copyright laws)
