The Lyrics

There was a rumor that every Spice Girl was in a different part of the world recording their own bits of a new Spice Girls single, instead, a greatest hits album will come out. Mel C announced on "What's Wrong With Anne Robinson?" that the Spice Girls are never going to reunite. And she didn't make it seem like the "girls" were very fond of each other.
Mel B: yo, I'll tell you what is up, what is really, really up
Geri: so tell 'em what is up, what is really, really up
Mel B: I'll tell you what is up, what is really, really up
Geri: so tell 'em what is up, cos you really piss me off
Mel B: we wanna quit, we wanna quit
we wanna quit, we wanna quit
we really, really, really, really want a real career ahh

Mel C: if you want these b*tches, then kiss my ass
Emma: if they wanna "sing" with me, better make it fast
Mel B: girls, don't be wasting my precious time
Geri: let's just get this over, so I can pay my fines

Mel B: I'll tell you what is up, what is really, really up
Geri: so tell 'em what is up, what is really, really up
Mel B: we wanna quit, we wanna quit
we wanna quit, we wanna quit
we really, really, really, really want a real career, ahh

chorus:
if you wanna see our comeback
you gotta be a desperate fan
we killed it off forever
the girlband's at its end
if you wanna see our comeback
you have got to be
crazy, in denial
it's just the way it is

Mel B: well, what you think about that?
all: now you know how it is
Emma: think I can stand Me's mug? Are you for real?
(are you for real?)
Mel B: now don't be hasty, which one's implied?
Geri: C or B both bug me, look like donkey flies

Mel B: I'll tell you what is up, what is really, really up
Geri: so tell 'em what is up, what is really, really up
Mel B: we wanna quit, we wanna quit
we wanna quit, we wanna quit
we really, really, really, really want a real career, ahh

chorus

Mel C: so here in London it's Melanie C
if you're asking me, I did my part of the CD
we got Em in New York babbling lines like a baby
we got V near the sea with David B
seen her in Spain all vain, with babes, she's a high lady
and Melanie B? Too scary!
tell me if you know, is Geri still alive?
tell me if you know, is Geri still alive?

chorus

(if you wanna see our comeback)
Mel B: you need a, you need a, you need a
you need a, you need a
(killed it off forever)
shrink, shrink, shrink, shrink
All: tell me if you know, is Geri still alive?
tell me if you know, is Geri still alive?
Geri: Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?
All: tell me if you know, is Geri still alive?
Mel B: tell me that she is, and I'll kill her myself

if you wanna see our comeback, come back, come back, come back...

I've done this song myself and judging from memory the pacing seems OK (can't find the damn cassette with TOS). As for the lyrics, well, great stuff, this is what a topic parody should have, maybe it could have benefited from variations to the chorus but then again, it captures my feelings for a comeback from them so good that I don't really care! 555! :-)

Funny one that I do remember TOS ( barely ). I think even if the SGs reunited they probably wouldn't sell many CDs. 5s

If only this remains true! http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/eltonjohn26.shtml

They're still together? Ha! They're such a joke.

Peter Andersson, Michael Pacholek, Diddims, I'm pretty sure a Spice Girls comeback will not happen. After all, they're not girls anymore, they're Assembled Female Parts with bits of plastic. Red Ant, you know the TOS barely? That's nothing to be ashamed about, I smacked myself in the head for actually remembering 95% of the original song without looking it up on the net!

It was interesting, and it kept almost perfect pace. That's good, which makes it actually a less annoying piece of work than those that are actually funny. Overall, I give you a 4, because you made it work. If you plan on writing other parodies though, Try to add a bit more humor.

Thank you, Panthyrr. And dont'cha know I am retired? :P

Seriously, though, that's sensible advice. Thanks again for the kind words about the pacing, cheers.
