The Lyrics

Moderator I must have a bad connection
If you've got someone readin' me
I changed the tempo, then I changed the song
Moderator can't you see

There's trouble on the line
Rhymes are gonna fall
It happens every time
I bang my head against the wall
My vocab's broken down
Just why I can't define
I'm pleading for some help, I'm
Having trouble on the line

Moderator my funny bone's been disconnected
I've lost my mental faculties
I don't have a choice
Just send me your invoice
Moderator help me please

There's trouble on the line
Rhymes are gonna fall
It happens every time
I bang my head against the wall
My vocab's broken down
Just why I can't define
I'm pleading for some help, I'm
Having trouble on the line

There's trouble on the line
Rhymes are gonna fall
It happens every time
I bang my head against the wall
My vocab's broken down
Just why I can't define
I'm pleading for some help, I'm
Having trouble on the line

No matter what the song is
I'm having trouble on the line

Thanks AFW.

(ABC3) DKTOS, but it reads well. I can tell you were trying to retain the spirit of the original...maybe did it too well.

Well, Agri, maybe he had writer's block (lol). Seriously, good work.---MM
Wolverine - March 21, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks Agri and MM. Actually, I'm having more writer's block on a U song. I've submitted one, but I'm not sure if I want that for the ABC U contest. Just haven't come up with anything else.

(ABC3-T) I have a soft spot for parodies about parodies (it's just below my belly button). This one hits it dead centre.
Jason - March 24, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) Again I DKTOS, but read well.
Cat - March 24, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) DKTOS, and you could've varied a bit more, but I can identify with this.
Max Power - March 24, 2007 - Report this comment
ABC - Good
Wolverine - March 26, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks Bob, Jason, Cat, and Max. Bob, I'll try to keep it more above-the-belt next time. :-) Cat, that's something I'm trying to work on. I'm used to going with the song. If the original repeats, I repeat. It was mentioned on another parody I had previously wrote that I submitted here as well.

(ABC3T) too much repetition to score votes Wolverine, but a good idea - I guess you had trouble on the lines - 555 (and re your last comment, yes, although it makes logical sense to repeat lines if the OS has done that, it's become a bit of a thing at amiright that you put the extra work in anyway, to avoid boring repetition and to make it more enjoyable for the reader) - 555
Rick C - March 26, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) Not a lot to this one but, I did find it interesting.
Matthias - March 27, 2007 - Report this comment
Not bad for a n00b, you'll learn my friend, you'll learn
Kristof Robertson - March 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) I really like the idea behind this, Wolfy. As has been said already, you need to vary the choruses and not leave too much of the OS in, but overall a good effort. 555

Thank you Stuart, Rick C, Matthias, and Kristof.
Johnny D - March 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) Well-structured, could have used more variation in the choruses, but a good effort.
Red Ant - March 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3-T) It's not often I agree with everyone above me, but so it is here. Sorry to have trouble voting 5s, but 544 was the best I could do. Still, not bad at all. Keep writing!

ABC...I once called myself a pretty big Sawyer Brown fan...and this reminds me of a fun "oldie" of sorts. I've had trouble with a lot of lines in my time doing parodies...so I can relate, too.
Jack Wilson - March 28, 2007 - Report this comment
Pretty good, 5s
Jeff Reuben - March 28, 2007 - Report this comment
I remember Sawyer Brown. Not bad, I agree with the variation on choruses comments.
Wolverine - March 28, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks Johnny D, Red Ant, Arwen, Jack, and Jeff.
