The Lyrics

I'm back with my latest parody
See them flying
Flying overhead
The rats of the sky
They keep pooping on our head
This vision in my eyes
oh yes
I've got the stuff
I'll set it up

That's me with the shotgun
That's me taking pot shots
Shooting at the pigeons
Trying to obliterate
But I don't think that I have hit one
And now I'm in a huff
Cos I fired off too much

Theres no more ammo
No more firepo'er so I'll
Choose my rocks carefully
Trying to kill just one pigeon
I just missed it by a smidgen
oh yes
I just got one
But it's not dead

Yes I got it
The shot of the century
Cos I hit it
The shot that took it's little knees failed
To knock it out of the tree
It's flying around
I've got one last shot
Take aim on the little fella
That little sky rat by there
Ah damn somebody else got him

Someone voted for 2 on pacing? Get a life, that was perfectly placed, i just didn't add commas, lol, get a life and know what the song is and sing along muppet

Well mate, I hate to be the one to break it to you but this wasn't very good. The title is great, and so were a few lines like "The rats of the sky", but there's a lot more to the song than what you have here. Where are the "I thought that I heard you laughing/I thought that I heard you sing/I think I thought I saw you cry" parts (x3)? Or the second chorus? Or the outro?

Since you've been around a while, I'm trying not to be too harsh, but if you listen to TOS you'll see what I'm talking about. 232.

PS- I've stated openly, repeatedly, and for some time now (like, over a year) that seriously incomplete parodies are going to get pacing docks from me. If you'd have rather seen a 431 vote from me, then perhaps that's a more "fair" representation of the pacing. Either way, no one who knows TOS is going to give you an honest set of 5s here. Sorry.

And, for the record, I'm not being vindictive or spiteful either. If that were the case, I'd simply inform ChuckyG (which I won't - you won't learn anything that way) about this being a fragment, and it would be bye-bye.

Fair enough, that's your opinion. Choose my rocks carefully Trying to kill just one pigeon I just missed it by a smidgen thats the bit ur after mate. and the only outro i missed was the dream part, which i didnt class as part of the song.

p.s. I am not you, I cannot control your thoughts or your humour so ur choice of a 3 is fair enough on funny, but when i wrote this,a dns till stand by it now, the pacing makes complete and perfect sense, but only down to the fact that its my song, i shall fomr now on include more punctuation into my stuff. and as i said on inthe00s, this was my first parody in a long time, just starting back up being the holidays are here.

You should try shooting at some quail instead. (Apologies to a previous VP)

I don't know if you see the irony here Josh2, but people are taking pot shots at your pigeon parody. That's typical of this site. Anyway, that's what you have to accept when posting to this site.. People's inner voices never seem to be in unison. I heard you fine. 5's

lol, Dick Cheney!! - I'm glad I read this for the pigeon/smidgen rhyme, Josh2 - and the comments, but that "smidgen"s gotta make a good title sub for this OS somehow!

Not bad, it's pretty funny, but it's not your best, even though I enjoyed the term, "Sky Rat"

(Decathlon - Event 9) Two Decathlon Animal entries about hurting animals - wait, three (I forgot mine!). As I don't know the song, I can't dock you on pacing. And I'm a strange person, so I found it hilarious!

(DEC) No, no, don't shoot 'em, POISON 'em, like Tom Lehrer said!

(decath9) see above - still like the title sub, Josh

Decathlon...I have to agree with Red And re: incomplete parodies...but this was fun to read anyway. I'm a little concerned, however, about the safety our airborne friends after reading only two round 9 entries and finding two entries about killing birds! ; )
