The Lyrics

Well, to better get in the Christmas spirit, I decided to parody a very well known Christmas tune. This year's about something every American seems to be facing recently. Debt, and tons of it. So therefore I made this song in honour of that. (This may or may not be based on a true story, I haven't decided yet)
My family's in debt for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are poor
I'm getting nothing for Christmas
'Cause somebody billed us some more.

My Dad fell down and broke his back
Somebody billed us more
Mom hit a nail and got a flat
Somebody billied us more

Dad has to pay off student loans
The bill's huge for my sister's cell phone
Had to put Grandpa in a nursing home
Somebody billed us more.

Oh, my family's in debt for Christmas
The bills just keep rolling in
I'm getting nothing for Christmas
'Cause we are in debt yet again.

Someone broke my glasses with a rock
Somebody billed us more
Dad took out a loan for internet stock
Somebody billed us more.

Oh, interest rates have hit us hard
Toxic waste got spilled in our yard
We bought our house with a credit card
Somebody billed us more.

Oh, my family's in debt this Christmas
We simply can't take much more
I'm getting nothing for Christmas
'Cause our credit rating hit the floor.

So manage your money, whatever you do
'Cause if you don't I'm warning you
You'll be in debt for Christmas.

Great concept and I see potential with your ideas but you have a serious pacing problem. The humor was worth a 5 but a spell checker would help and count your beats to the OS they are way off in the non chorus sections. The "Daddy fell" verse was paced perfectly but after that it fell apart. I see potential here. Please take this constructive criticism with the spirit and intent of comradery amongst we who strive to perfect our craft. Hang in there and keep pluggin'. It will come to you.

Actually, me and some friends came up with some ways to change a few things for the better... Unfortunatly, I can't edit in these changes, nor resubmit the improved lyrics... And I certainly wish that I had a spell checker, but I'm stuck with word pad :(

No rule says you can't resubmit the same parody. I have done it once or twice. You can re-write the parody and resubmit. Then Email ChuckyG the webmaster providing him with the link to this parody and ask that he delete it. I have had some of my parodies deleted for one reason or another. No big deal. Or just simply move on. Get some clues from the better writers on the site by really looking at their parodies. I have over 730 parodies on this site and my first few dozen left a lot to be desired. It takes work and you have to love it or it doesn't work for you. We are all on a learning curve here that never ends. Some of us are just further into the turn than others. Good luck to you friend.
