"Ode to Chris Carrabba"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Well. I like Dashboard, but sometimes I don't want to hear Chris complain when he has too much money.
so this song stinks
sounds like a whiny white boy after too many drinks
and his music makes me hurl
his music makes me hurl
so i take a hammer to the disk
it's not one that i'm going to miss
but it doesn't make it any better
doesn't make it any better
so his skull i dented with my fist
because i was hella-pissed
god i hate this penetentary.

so this is strange
my acts of violence have led me to the federal pen
and i'm everyone's hero
i'm everyone's hero
and my cell mate thinks that i'm a saint
a mural of me's on the wall in paint
and so i'm not losing any sleep

i'm glad i killed that waste of space
by putting my fist through his face
and i'm measuring the days by some scratchmarks on the wall

this is incredible
chris is dirt napping
yes this is joy for the first time.
well you'd like to think you were invincible, yeah
well weren't we all once
before we felt death for the first time
this is the last time
this is the last time

What an idiot. What? you have nothing better to do than sit around and create parodys to be what you alone think are funny? to get attention? What? Seriously, i would like to know. wow! you are so mature. what does this do for you? how does this waste of time help you? do you have any friends, because maybe you should consider getting a life. i know its not for everyone, but i think you desperately need one. Quick, there's no time to lose.

If you think Christopher Carraba is bad maybe you should read your freakin' parody and think again. This is ultimately the worst parody I've ever heard. You think this was funny? Parodies are made to be funny not dis the singer of the original song. You wish you could write music as good as Chris. You suck. You need to get a life and I feel bad for you because you probably have no friends. "I'm glad I killed that waste of space" Well maybe I should kill you cos your parody was a waste of space. Dashboard Confessional is a great band and if you don't like them then keep it to yourself you POS. You'd like to think that you were invincible yeah well wern't we all once, before we were told we had no life? I think you should die.

I hate this simply because its alot of effort to bash an amazing talent. Maybe you are afraid of feelings, I dont know. But get over it.

Omg, as if. Chris Carrabba is so talented. As a true DC fan i am ashamed at whoever wrote this parody. The information is inacurate and who are you to bash a huge star. Obviously he's doing something right if he's rich and famous for his talents and you clearly arn't. Also, who takes time out of their life to make a terrible parody bashing an awesome band. You must not have any sort of a life. --Katie (#1 Dashboard fan)

Wow!! this probably the WORST parody i have ever heard of any song in my entire life. Maybe before you wast your life sitting in front of your computer thinking of aweful parodies to make fun an awsome band and more so an amazing singer you should look at your crappy life and realize that he is obviously doing something right b/c he is the one who is rich and can sit back and read your parody and just laugh and say "wow there is no way this HUGE loser can possibly have a life if he is able to sit down and make of me w/ these aweful song lyrics." so maybe next time u should try thinking about that. and i would tell u to get a life but i wont even bother b/c im sure that is pretty much impossible for a huge loser such as yourself!!

i absolutely love how everyone who commented is a dashboard fan. and i couldn't agree with more with them. i also like how people find it so much fun to bash on a short guy with sleeves and an acoustic guitar. people are pathetic.

ignorant jerk.....look how many people are against that... chris is actually a very genuine and kind need to find something better to do with your time than make fun of someone who you've never even met. you need to jump in a pool with cement around your feet and take a very deep breath.
