The Lyrics

a song writer is kidnapped by disgruntled fans and now has to rhyme with all the words they give him, or they'll kill him.
Intro: Damn!

Verse 1: I made some dudes angry
And now I’m in their grasp
Told me to use my words
To get these chains unclasped
I’ll do the best on this test
Or that’s my time
They give me a word
And I must give them a rhyme

Chorus: It’s something unforeseeable
A victim of this crime
But now I’ll have to rhyme for my life

Verse 2: They held up photographs and pics of words they want
Showed me the word “stunt” said, “that’s gay and you’re BLUNT.”
Maybe to mock them isn’t smart, but I don’t care
“You’re really stupid and it’s impolite to stare!”

Chorus: This thing is so ridiculous
I’m sure that I’ll be fine
As long as I can rhyme for my life

Chorus: It’s something so unbearable
As boring as a mime
Do I still have to rhyme for my life?

Chorus: It’s something so repetitive
I think I’ve earned my time
I think that I just rhymed for my HEAD

Outro: (Whoops! I messed up that last one!)

Blaydeman - Play he can! With my luck, they'd give me "orange". ;D

Sounds like the plot for a suspense movie. Always get my rhymes by accident. I'd hate to have to try to do it under pressure.

Very nice idea with this one...never would have thought of it! Love the outro as well, great work!

(Artistry) Ooh, a high-concept parody here. Not what I would expect from you, and you did it really well. Cool.

This one was pretty hilarious! I loved that you actually switched up the choruses this time (You're improving at that! Yay!) This one was very, very funny and I loved the ending.

A good concept, this would play out well in a longer song, I was disappointed when it ended (because it was good and I enjoyed it).

(Artistry) Oh, crap, the rhyme bandits are on the loose again. Wild idea and funny parody.

(Artistry) Think the verses could do with some polishing, but this was still a brilliant idea greatly executed. Sounds like a musical version of Stephen King's Misery. 555!

Sorry. . ."that’s gay and you’re BLUNT" --two things this line makes no sense to me, and I (as many people know) always disdain the use of the word gay in place of odd, weird, different, etc. . .especially on a parody of a song who's lead-singer is pro-gay rights and openly bi-sexual. . .also, I don't think this song is long enough for this kind of theme. . .sorry Blayde, but I admit I was a bit disappointed with this one
