The Lyrics

Ok, I know, I am a wannabe...
I was listening to
Weird Al Yankovic when
I thought that I should write parodies
They all looked just kind of dumb
Couldn't even finish one
I thought I wasn't cut out for the thing

Well, the months kept coming, and they don't stop coming
Listen to songs, and I think I found something
Soon I wrote really good parodies
I started to get real proud of me

Soon I would be making CD's
Be more famous than David Bowie
I would be rolling in the dough
Going to be a star so

Hey now
I'm real funny
People adore my spoofs
And all of my albums
Pile up to the roof
It sounds crazy, I know
I still think it will happen though

It's a cool site
Chucky updates it often
People joke about everything like Lara Croft and
I've voted on a smorgasbord of songs
And almost all of the time I can get along

It's Am I Right
Man, what a good site
The parodies are great
Although some aren't alright
Some hysterical
Some are really gay
I think I'd never have it any other way

Hey now
It's Am I Right
My parodies come here
I'll still come to this place when I'm rich years later
Be the most honored cheese
People will rush to chat with me

Hey now
I'm only 12
I'll be 13 in May
But I'm gonna write 14 parodies today
I'll be swimming in gold
At least that's what my fortune told

I send all my songs
To AmIRight.com
Where people vote and comment on my great work
They said
Well, oh what the hell
5's because when I read this I fell
And I just couldn't stop my laughing

Well, the songs keep coming and they don't stop coming
I'm chased by admiring fans
That's why I'm running
Love the paparazzi and they love me
I'll be the best for eternity
So much to do
So little time
Gotta make these songs to earn a dime
I make parodies to earn bread
Never let it go to my head...NOT!

Hey now
I'm so funny
People adore my spoofs
Even though most of them are just really dumb goofs
First rate spoof musician
I will get a band in addition....

Are you seriously 12 years old???

Yep. T.J. Spindler is 10, though.

I have to say, great pacing. Especially at the beginning, very impressive.

Xander999, thanks! I don't believe I've seen you here before! Are you new? Maybe you're not, I've only been here for a few months.

Arwen, are you surprised that I'm 12, or T.J. is 10?
Aaron Dodson - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Not bad! In fact, it's great! I dunno how many of yall know this, but I'm just 12 too. Maybe we should start a "Amiright 2" website or something for the junior crew :-)
Your Worst Nightmare - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Cool! Another kid my age! Are you in sixth or seventh grade? Me, I'm in seventh. :-) Good idea about the junior Am I Right. A place where we don't have to worry about our parents banning us, because it will have automated moderators, and everything will be kid safe. And we will all live in peace... Plus, we could chat with other teens and preteens. That would be so cool.

And you want to separate yourselves from the rest why exactly? I didn't find the site until ~16, but I know if I was 10 I'd much rather use the full site than a junior version - and what with the new no-sex-actually-enforced rule, you shouldn't have too much of a problem with parental banning, either ;-).
neminem - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Oops, sorry, forgot to also put that I 5/5/5d it, much as I'd prefer to not see usage of "gay" to mean "bad."
Your Worst Nightmare - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
I understand, and I'm the same way, but I had to say gay to make things rhyme. Not saying I don't like it because I'm gay. AND I'M NOT!
Arwen - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Both, YWN!! I started writing parodies when I was about 16-17 years old. I'm just surprised...kids these days...they get smarter and smarter...; ) And I say NO about the junior site...you can hold your own around here...=)
Your Worst Nightmare - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Soon, children will rule the world... Muahahaha.... Except I'll be an adult by the time that happens. Oh, well. Anyway, I was never really serious about the junior website, but I risk banishment from Am I Right, whenever my mom is around, and there are curse words in the comments.
neminem - April 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Speaking of muahahaha, f*** that banishment s**t :-P. Where by f*** I mean "flip" and by s**t I mean "salt".

There's no doubt in my mind that this one deserves a perfect score. Well done!

Good song---ya whippersnapper! :) Great bragging lyrics mixed in with this, almost like a pro hip-hop rapper. 555

Neminem - Ok...

Mr. X - Thanks!

Agrimorfee - *looks at all the 5's in his hands* Gee, thanks, Mister! I think this is my most popular song yet!

I'm working on a parody of "Absolutely (The Story Of A Girl)" by Nine Days, and it is about William Hung.
Your Worst Nightmare - April 20, 2004 - Report this comment
It has recently come to my attention that there is another song here called "Parody Writer", a parody of "Paperback Writer". If the author of that song sees this, just to let you know, I did not copy off of you. I got this idea on my own.

YWN: Welcome to AmiRight. Almost all of us, sooner or later, writes a parody or two about writing parodies. Maybe itīs unavoidable. Home is where your thoughts are. :-)

These are mine if you should sometime get the time to check them out:

Thanks for the welcome! I first saw this site in December last year, and couldn't help laughing out loud at the misheard lyrics and whatnot. I didn't start submitting things like misheard lyrics and insincere lyrics till early March. And just last week, I made my first parody: Mianus. Now, I am working on a parody of "Absolutely (The Story Of A Girl" by Nine Days, called "William Hung". The first parody, I read here, by the way, was "Absolutely (The Story Of A Bastard That Keeps Giving Us 1's For No Reason)". At the time, I didn't know what it was talking about with the 1's, but later it made sense. Also, I hadn't heard the original songs you parodies there, but I'm sure they were good spoofs! :-)

YWN - DKTOS (Don't know the original song) so I can't vote on it, but welcome to the site from one of the OLDER writer's (turned 54 on April 1st).

Hey, Paul, ya old goat! Just kidding don't throw rocks at me! Anyway, thanks for the welcome, and... Wait... You were born on April Fools? Guess that makes sense. :-)

YWN - Absolutely! Perhaps my one claim to fame here...since at least one other writer is a slight bit older than I. I don't mind the "old goat" reference, you young zippersnapper...

Hey, DuDe1013, I don't know why you voted 1 for humor and overall, but I know that is your decision, but what the *insert obscenity* did you vote 1 pacing for??? The pacing was right on the dot!
Agrimorfee - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Seems like many people who score low for Funny additionally score low for Pacing automatically, without giving it a second thought. Most of my songs I test out by singing along or by counting syllables directly from lyric sheets, and still get low pacing scores. You just can't make people think sometimes.
Your Worst Nightmare - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
I do the same counting syllables thing. Some people are just unthoughtful, eh?
David Jensen - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
I too get some low votes on pacing on some of my songs even though I do the same thing and go over it many times before submitting them. Unfortunately along with those of us who are here just to have fun this site also attracts those who just want to make others miserable because they are themselves. On the flip side I have seen 5's given to songs that needed a pacemaker to help them along and also did lack humor. But hey this isn't an accurate nor official voting procedure. For that we would need a panel of professional song writers and comedians. Even then It depends on their specific tastes. Besides, I go by the comments. If you like what I write thanks. If you don't, that's ok too. Just don't tell me. You might make me cry.;-)
Your Worst Nightmare - May 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, there was this song I can remember, where the pacing was AWFUL, and it was definitely more offensive than funny. Everybody gave it 5's and patted him on the back. Then there's the 1/1/1's guy. He must have visited every single one of my songs. He's such a loser. That's what I think, anyway. He's just one big, jealous, loser who wants to bring down everybody's ratings. Anyway, I agree with you, and would not want you to cry! lol
DuDe1013 - May 13, 2004 - Report this comment
Actually, I only visited this song. I don't want to visit your other ones. Fine i'll put in 1/5/1. U happy? Everyone, check out my versions of the Pokemon Theme Song, A Whole New World, and Here We Go by NSync
Your Worst Nightmare - May 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Hmmm.... Pacing should be 5. And if you weren't the one who voted 1/1/1... GASP! The 1's guy struck!!
... - May 17, 2004 - Report this comment
You are so right, the pacing was perfectly fine; it should be 5. In fact, that's what I vote on it. Anyone who votes ones on this obviously has no life.
