The Lyrics

This is my first parody. Took all of 30 minutes to write. Obviously it is about one of the editors here at amiright!!!
Ode To My Editor


Do Do Do Do (x8)

I'm submitting this full song
What will he think of me?
Cause I spent half my day revising
Red Ant don't disagree
Will he read it, will he
Will he like me, will he like my parody?
Did he notice, does he know
Did he see it, did he see it
My Break Tags

Unhappiness, is what I would feel if
He didn't give a damn
Cause I can write
Whether he thinks I can't, I know I really can
My fingers, my fingers they hurt me
Yes they hurt me, from writer's cramp
My format, my format, no caps lock
NO CAPS LOCK, DOES RED ANT CARE?


Understand that I am not
Like K . Y . L . E .
And I'm a fan just like you
Of the late Layne Staley
And I miss him, I miss
Cause I liked him, O I liked him
In Alice in Chains
You'd think that, you'd think
It would get me somewhere, but I don't know
If Red Ant Cares

Unhappiness, is what I would feel if
He didn't give a damn
Cause I can write
Whether he thinks I can't, I know I really can
My fingers, my fingers they hurt me
Yes they hurt me, from writer's cramp
My format, my format, no caps lock
NO CAPS LOCK, DOES RED ANT CARE?
Does Red Ant care?
Does Red Ant care?
Does Red Ant care?
Does Red Ant care?
Does Red Ant care?
Does Red Ant care?
Does Red Ant care?


Do Do Do Do (x12)

Mr 1s, this is not an attack parody. Like Matthias wrote, you'd have to know some background here to get this. Great first submission, Tam! And thanks again!

I think I remember when you posted this on the messageboard. Good work!! =) And like Jack said, this is not an attack. I will be sure to give Tam some karma when I log onto the messageboard pretty soon!

Great parody, but who was K.Y.L.E. and why can't I find any of his parodies? I'm guessing it was a ban like those of Cisum Rd spelled backwards and George Hamlinton IV, in which every parody was deleted. 5s.

K.Y.L.E. was banned for mass plagiary (over 100 submissions) of not only other amirighters' work, but for reposting OS lyrics verbatim.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
