The Lyrics

Catfish(ing): someone who pretends to be someone they're not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances. See: Manti Te'o. Original Song
[Roommate 1]
Hey man, you won’t believe me
I’ve found a girl who’s my dream
Her name’s Caroline and I met her online
And her face is a nine, her bod- thirteen!

[Roommate 2]
She thinks you’re cute; you think it’s love!?
I’m sorry man, but you’re so dumb
You say there’s no doubt, but you should check her out
And I have to avow, I won’t budge

When you’re online, check for catfish posers
Cause they’re not who they’re pretending to be
Looks nice, is she son or daughter?
She says Caroline, could be Larry!
Or she lied about her size
Her age or her likes
Does she take her teeth out at night?
She’s your soulmate? Well, you better think twice…
You gotta check who’s online!

[Roommate 1]
Sent me a pic of her face
I won’t believe what you say
So you should hold your breath, 'cause I think you’re jealous
And she’ll be my girlfriend—we set our first date
And then you’ll see with your eyes
When she comes here Friday night
Then you’ll have to believe that you’re jealous of me
And you’re feeling lonely, and you’re not her type!

[Roommate 2]
For the last time, she’s a catfish poser
Won’t like you unless she really likes geeks
And you will still call your mother
When the lightning storms get too scary
You’re a three and she’s a nine
A babe with big…eyes
There’s no way she thinks you’re her knight
Pic says ‘hottie’, but her name’s prob’ly Mike
I guess we’ll see Friday night…
[Roommate 1]
Meet Car’line Rae—I love her big hazel eyes
I love her curvy rear and wavy hair
We’re going out, we hope you have a good night
Enjoy your ev’ning…

[Roommate 2]
I thought Car’line was a catfish poser
But I guess they got the better of me
Not sure if girls get much hotter
But I saw something he didn’t see…
She’s a hottie in disguise
Red dress that’s so tight
But an Adam’s Apple is hard to hide
Man my roommate is in for a surprise…
That’s why I don’t date online

Oh, your lady might be a guy…
Oh, you gotta check who’s online

(SOTM) The funniest parody I've read in the contest so far. This has everything I look for in a typical SOTM entry -- Great lines, a catchy original song, a worthy subject. This is gonna be the one to beat! 555

I've attempted online dating before and thankfully it never turned out like this. Great song though. Very funny!

That was like a scary déjà vu of the prelude to my last 555 dates...

Now I'll know what to refer to someone I know on Newgrounds as due to the incident years ago. It's the same story, alt account and phony girlfriend.
