The Song Parodies Thread...

The pen is mighty

Postby ET Girl » 12 Feb 06, 12:16 am


This is a new parody. I did my best. Unfortunetely, I had only (I Want My) Nickelback's lamo lyrics to work with. I tried. No really...! In fact, this song is so lame, I left some of their lyrics the same. Since they're almost unintentionally self-parodying in their original form.


Anyways, more to follow shortly.
:D

(I Want My) Nickelback - So Lame

How'd on earth this song wind up a hit?
We wrote a fable, using lines that others dissed
And did the best we're able

'Wish you'd open your wallets
Though this song's a disgrace
Lately there's been too much of this
Nobody thinks this song's great

Something's wrong, I sound so crass
You know that my voice's so shrill

(Chorus)

So lame, so lame
We're gonna get this song right
But not right now
I know you're wondering when

(We're the only ones who know that)
So lame, and how
We're gonna get this song right
But not right now
I know you're wondering when

Well you'd think that since we suck, anyway
That we could end up playing
Things way that we're supposed to play
Still, we end up playing

Like we're just begging to be dissed
'Sing bad, you can hear me warble
Let's rewrite another song we did
Instead of a new song to mumble

Something's wrong, just as long as
You know it's so lame, but still

(Chorus)

So lame, so lame
We're gonna get this song right
But not right now
I know you're wondering when

(We're the only ones who know that)
So lame, and how
I'm gonna get this song right
But not right now
I know you're wondering when

[Solo]

How on earth we'd write songs like this?
Why weren't we able, to see the rhymes that we missed
We still sing the same old fables

Now the guitars whine and they hiss
Just as I begin to warble
Let's rewrite the same song again
Listen as I begin to grovel

It's so wrong, this song's so crass
You know we're over the hill

(Chorus)

So lame, so lame
We're gonna get this song right
but not right now
I know you're wondering when

(We're the only ones who know that)
So lame, and how
I'm gonna get this song right
But not right now
I know you're wondering when

We're gonna get this song right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(We're the only ones who know that)
I know you're wondering when
(We're the only ones who know that)
I know you're wondering when ...
Waaahhh.... AUUUGGGHHHHH!!

This is...an extended rehash of...The First Cut Is The Deepest...by Cat Stevens-- ...Sheryl Crow's lazy-day version ...zZZZzzzz.. Though I like her original music, this is kinda' lamo!


The First Take Is The Weakest

I should have sung this with all of my heart
But there's no way I'm re-singing my part
I don't like giving it all that I've got
If I tried, I'd screw it up, again
Maybe I'd screw it up again, but who knows...

The first take is the weakest, believe me, I know
The first take is the weakest
'Cause when it comes to singing on-key, it hurts
When it comes to singing covers I'm worst
But when it comes to being lazy, I'm first
That's why it shows...

The first take is the weakest, believe me, I know
The first take is the weakest....

I will sing it in a voice that sounds tired
I can't help it, I do that all the time
And I'm sure gonna' sing like I'm fried
And if you care, I flubbed a line again
Maybe, I flubbed another line, but who cares

The first take is the weakest, believe me, I know
The first take is the weakest
'Cause when it comes to singing on-key, it hurts
When it comes to singing covers I'm worst
But when it comes to being lazy, I'm first
That's why it shows...

I thought I'd do this old song for a lark
But there's no way I'm re-doing my part
And they'll buy it for 2 bucks at Wal Mart
'Cause I know that all my fans aren't so smart

The first take is the weakest, believe me, I know
The first take is the weakest

'Cause when it comes to singing on-key, it hurts
When it comes to singing covers I'm worst
But when it comes to singing lousy, I'm first
That's why it shows...

Flubbed a line again...

:lol:

I have a parody of "Eye Of The Tiger" an old song Weird Al parodied once. I think I'll post it. It's about reality tv.
Thanks for the compliment, Dire Straights.

:D   :hug:

I like a lot of the music from the 1980's, last millen'. This is a parody that I did awhile ago from a 1980's soundtrack.
This is my version of "Eye Of The Tiger". It is based on (what else?) Reality TV...specifically: Survivor. Now wait just a second....isn't "Survivor" the name of the band who does the original version of this song?

Oh yes...sooooo here's my (only slightly extended-remixed versuon) of:  
The Eye Of The Tiger

My version is:
I Lied On Survivor

BAM! THUMP, THUMP, THUMP....THUMP, THUMP, THUMP....BANG BANG BANG!

BAM! THUMP, THUMP, THUMP....THUMP, THUMP, THUMP....BANG BANG BANG!

Fired up
Straight from the drop
I might die
I'll take my chances

What's the difference?
Where you sleep
What you eat
Got a plan
Build a tent to survive

So many lies, they happen so fast
You trade your rashons for glory
Tribal dips, like that snake Richard Hatch
Vote him out, on his a**, one more time

Watch me
Lie on survivor
It's the thrill of my life
Ganging up on the weakest of my rivals

And the last sole Survivor
Has to cheat through the night
To take home bragging right's
So I lied.... on Survivor

Acting up, out in the heat
Playing tough, though I'm hungry
Wasting away, with nothing to eat
Eating grubs, and feeling touchy

They stacked the odds
Now we'll play till we're beat
With our will
Have no skills to survive

Watch me
Lie on Survivor
It's the thrill of the knife
Lying hard, as you're backstabbing your rivals

And the last sole survivor
has to cheat every night
To take home bragging rights
So I lied....on Survivor

Tied me up
Fed me some slop
I've got no guts
Where's my glory?
What's the deal here?
When there's nothing to eat
Just some ants
And this swill every night

Throwing up, in some losers cot
Eat some slime
Climb some fences
What's the difference if I'm lazy or not?
Just a plan, and the will to eat mice

Watch me
Cry on Survivor
It's my great fear of heights
Wimping out, as I'm cheating on my rivals

So the last sole Survivor has to cheat for their life
To bring home lots of dough
So I lied....on Survivor

See me
Lie on Survivor
Watch me beg, steal and bite
Ganging up, on the weakest of my rivals

And the last sole Survivor has to lie, cheat and fight
To bring home bragging rights so I lied...
on Survivor

I lied on Survivor
I lied on Survivor
I cried on Survivor
I cried on Survivor
I lied on Survivor.....

This is my loving spoof of Alanis Morissette's all-time-classic song:
IRONIC

My (Totally unworthy) version is:
MORONIC

A gold band lost in a grate
I won the lottery
Threw the ticket away
It's a black vine on your garden gate
It's a beg your pardon?
When there's nothing to say

Isn't it moronic... don't you think?

It's like plain frosted wedding cake
It's a quick bite when you're already late
It's a cream pie when you've already ate
The food that throws off... your figure
 
Miss's Play It Straight was afraid of mice
She packed her own plates
And kissed off for a bite  
She wasted the whole d**n night
Tryin' to beat that fright
And as the rain splashed down
She thought "Well isn't this ice...?"

And isn't it moronic... don't you think?

It's like plain frosted wedding cake
It's a quick bite when you're already late
It's a cream pie when you've already ate
The food that throws off... your figure
 
Well mice have a funny way
Of sneaking up on you
When you're near the sink, one day
And they give you such a fright

And mice have a funky way
Of making you doubt, when
You think everything's a song
And every tune blows up in your face

A trapping scam, but you're already late
A no-coaxing sign in your kitchenette space
It's like ten thousand rooms
But all you see is the night  
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his "beautiful" mice

And isn't it moronic... don't you think?
A little too moronic... and yeah I really do think...

It's like plain frosted wedding cake
It's a quick bite when you're already late
It's a cream pie when you've already ate
The food that throws off... your figure
 
Mice have a funny way of sneaking up on you

Mice have a funny, funny way of freaking you out  
Freaking you out ...

** No mice whatsoever were harmed during the writing of this parody or the..ummm...posting or reviewing of the posting of this post.

WAL MART ZONE

(Somewhere in a lonely shopping mall,
There's a girl starting to realize
That eternal fate has turned its back on her,
It's two p.m...........)

It's two p.m., the fear is strong
I'm doing some shopping', my purse is full
I'm tired of just sitting here, I'm gonna take a chance
Yeah there's a store up ahead, much to my dread
I'm trapped by my curiousity, brain curcuits are dead
I cannot resist, my whole mind slips into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the WAL MART zone
The place is a madhouse, employees bein' cloned
My reason's removed, now I've gone way too far
What am I to buy now that my money's all gone

Help I'm steppin' into the WAL MART zone
The place is a nuthouse, loudspeaker's droning on
All reason's removed, now I've gone way too far
Where am I to shop now that my money's all gone

So, it just goes to show
You're better off goin' home
So, it just goes to show
You're better off stayin' home

I'm walking down an aisle, frustration starts to grow
A wall of floss and toothpaste, high above
I can't find what I want, what to do, I'm feelin' blue
Well the lights shine brightly, turned way too high
This far from the check - out line
And when the bill has come
You know damn well you have been cheated

Help I'm steppin' into the WAL MART zone
The place is a nuthouse, loudspeaker's droning on
All reason's removed, now I've gone way too far
Where am I to shop now that my money's all gone

So, it just goes to show
You're better off goin' home
So, it just goes to show
You're better off stayin' home
So, it just goes to show
You're better off goin' home
So, it just goes to show
You're better off stayin' home

- ET Girl


These are the original lyrics... for your ummm... perusal. :)

The Twilight Zone - Original Lyrics


 
(Somewhere in a lonely hotel room,
There's a guy starting to realize
That eternal fate has turned its back on him,
It's two a.m...........)

It's two a.m., the fear has gone
I'm sittin' here waitin', the gun still warm
Maybe my connection is tired of takin' chances
Yeah there's a storm on the loose, sirens in my head
I'm wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
I cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far

Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know, when the bullet hits the bone

I'm falling down a spiral, destination unknown
A double-crossed messenger, all alone
I can't get no connection, can't get through, where are you
Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
And when the hit man comes
He knows damn well he has been cheated

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know, when the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know, when the bullet hits the bone

Hi, DS! :hug:

Hope you like my latest parody. I'm so busy writing serious lyrics that I don't post as many of them as I'd like. I really should post more.

Don't tell anybody... but I make a pretty good living at it.   :D

But the joy of writing songs comes first for me. $$$ is just something that comes after the fact.

Very funnneee! Umm... we really don't use money. So you're right about that.

Btw, I love the Beatles. Octopus's Garden is from the Abbey Road CD!
