The Lyrics

In the hands of some talented synth music artists like New Order, Sparks or Pet Shop Boys the original song could probably have been great(er than a semi-hit), now it's just flower power blaaargh. I can't even better it with a parody (not much anyway) so it'll have to be one of those introspective/descriptive meta-rants.
This' a worthless song
Trite and a disgrace
And it's way too long
Wee, wee fun
Fly as miss July,
in Playboy Dubai,
snails and kidney pie
I feel drowned
Can't pin down the sound
Muse just ain't awake
Or she ain't around
Surely now
I should've moved along
Used some other words
Cos these must be wrong

I've thrown together
(And how - It's blah)
This shite parody

(Chorus x 4)

Lines are on a drought
Now I have no doubt
I can't sort rhymes out
I feel square
Yes I think I do
Found just empty words
Since a week or two
Mind's just swirl
No authority
Trying is a strife
Psychologically
Here's a part
That can make you scream
Worse than a latrine
It can't be redeemed

I've thrown together
(And how - It's blah)
This shite parody

(Chorus x 4)

And here comes two more minutes of zzzzaxophone, "Oh Yeah"s and another bunch of chorus repeats before the whole thing is finally over.

I quite liked this one, Peter. Congrats on yet another first band submission (did you get a Time-Life "Obscure 90s Artists" CD recently?), but given Peregrin's comment I think I'll pass on d/l TOS for now, unless you mixed in misheard lyrics along with your song satire and 'writing parody'. 5s all the same.

Nicely done, Peter. Congrats on being first to parody an artist.
