The Lyrics

A hypothetical and sarcastic look at a break-out success comedy artist with a true and compelling moral. You're sure to learn a valuable lesson from the song.
Don't let funny change you,

This is a story "bout a kid, his name is Ryan,
There are no women in this story, but he's tryin',
He lived a pretty normal life; school, Xbox, PC,
He liked playing poker, but he's bad at lyin',
Spent his time at home writing comedy,
Posted it on the internet for all to see,
So he'd sit in his chair day and night constantly writing crap to inspire laughter,
He started going to contests for parody,
He never won, but people respected him for trying,
Until one fateful day when the wind blew his way and he told a joke that got the response he's after,
Now he's out doing shows every Friday,
He's getting better, but it's clear there's still a long way,
So he quit his occupation to tour around the nation doing small shows,

Don't let funny change you,

His first shows were sell-out, packed success hits,
And he went from wearing Vans to Nike steps,
That's not important to the story, but it was getting a little boring, let's skip to the part where he tops the song charts,
He started signing stuff, recording, multitasking,
He'd eat the last chips without even asking,
He started buying cars, and he bought Mars, and is now trying to put his name on it,
He used to want to be the best of the industry,
And now he's creating Flaunt-My-Money public ministries,
Now he's trying to put his face, having Washington's erased, on the dollar bill we all know and love,
He's a big deal now, rappin' bout spam,
Online gaming, internet, and Star Wars,
I mean, just a year ago, people rarely thought he's funny, and now he's patrolling, rolling around in people's money,

Don't let funny change you,

He was using his solid gold bubble bath,
Trying to solve mazes, find the correct path,
Now this guy busts in, his face in a frown,
He says, "Ryan, I think something is going down",
Ryan chuckles and puts on his slippa's,
Which are made from the preserved hairs of Jesus,
The guy says predicted sales, did not live up, numbers failed, and now you're in debt and in a lot of it,
Ryan charged everything to credit card,
How does he hope to ever now pay for Mars?
Turns out, he only made two iTunes sales, he can't afford a candy bar!
Now the moral of the story isn't funny,
It'll sting like having your hair soaked with honey,
If you learn something from me, just know that there's no money in the industry that we call comedy,

Don't let funny change you,
Don't let funny change you,
Don't let funny change you,
Don't let funny change you.
True story ... except for that ... entire thing ... part.
