The Lyrics

900TH PARODY, Y'ALL! And as is my tradition, I have taken a song I parodied back when I was stupid and inexperienced and re-parody along a vaguely similar topic. Last time I ripped on the Nintendo Gamecube because that was the thing at the time. This time I make retribution for bashing-for-the-sake-of-it by calling out that practice and other similar issues when it comes to internet discourse.

Don't be so quick to join the fra-ay (ah)
Listen, please
It's called bandwagon hoppin', don't pla-ay (ah)
Stop it, please
May look like ev'rybody says the sa-ame (ah)
Doesn't mean
You have to join them (ah), cause it's kinda la-ame (ah)
Truth, you see

Online's not a hive mind (ah)
Not ev'ry single ne-erd
Thinks that "Man of Steel" was crap (ah)
It's not a oncomin' he-erd
If your opinion, dude (ah)
Differs from the others, you-ou
Don't have to adjust, du-ude
Just say what you feel, it's coo-ool

Cause no-one deserves to feel that they will be scorned (ah)
Cause they don't agree with what appears to be the norm
Think a film is shit or just alright (ah)?
Don't be scared to admit that, won't be shot on sight (ah)

Don't be so quick to hide awa-ay (ah)
Listen, please
Don't go bandwagon hoppin', oka-ay (ah)
Stop it, please
May seem that ev'rybody thinks the sa-ame (ah)
Not true, see
No tar and feathers (ah), go ahead and sa-ay (ah)
What you please

Could be you have not (ah)
Watched what most of the ne-erds
Hate with all of their heart (ah)
Should you repeat? Couldn't hu-urt
But that thought train's risky (ah)
Sayin' Bieber's a dou-ouche
Without list'nin' to him, du-ude (ah)
Might come off the bigger too-ool

If you haven't seen what the Internet abhors (ah)
Then you shouldn't really go ahead with all the scorn
But then to watch it, you're not obliged (ah)
If you wanna, go 'head, if you don't, that's alright (ah)

Don't be so quick to post awa-ay (ah)
Listen, please
Don't go bandwagon hoppin', it's la-ame (ah)
Stop it, please
To do some kind of research ain't a wa-aste (ah)
Not true, see
You might discover (ah) that it's a new fa-ave (ah)
Try it, please

Who could enjoy (ah)
Conversations where no-one takes part?
Who could enjoy (ah)
Actin' like parrots, thinkin' that we're smart?
Who could enjo-oy (ah)
Repeated lists of film pros and co-ons (co-ons)?
Who could enjoy (ah)
The concept of a definitive right and wrong?

To me, sounds like a bore (ah) (ev'ryone's diff'rent, du-u-ude)
This song's bad, that film su-ucks, this plot point's ignored (ah) (I thought that bit was coo-oo-ool)
Though discussion may sound like such a chore (ah) (what's wrong with a chat?)
Repetition makes me snore (ah), ne-erds

Hey (ah) talk with me
Yea (ah) let's get nerdy

Sounds complex, but don't (don't) run awa-ay (ah)
Come on, listen to me
Don't go bandwagon hoppin' (no bandwagon hoppin'), not grea-eat (ah)
Go and say what you please
As long as it's not in a (don't be an absolute prick) harmful wa-ay (ah)
Don't be dumb, be careful, please
I wanna help you (do do do do) so heed what I sa-ay (ah)
So you won't irk the geeks

Things to avoid (ah):
Charged invectives when they're not called fo-o-or
Things to avoid (ah):
Mixin' "consensus" with "just like the Borg"
Things to avoi-oid (ah):
Commentin' in threads twenty weeks o-old (o-ld) (that's just silly)
Things to avoid (ah):
Callin' people Hitler, cause that's stupid, not bold

Ah (uh)

Follow these tips, you'll be oka-ay
Just tread carefully, dude
Read aloud what you wanna sa-ay
Mark your sarcasm
Agree with the norm? That's oka-ay
Don't be contrarian right now
Online discourse is pretty grea-eat
But it is real tricky

Are you hearin' me?
Go post somethin'
There's regrets
Cause I've said a lot of stupid things on many a blog

Normally I say not to click the link in the opening comments because I really sucked at this whole parody shindig back then. While that is true, I also suggest to not click it because the way I approached the topic really proved how stupid I was. Still haven't played anything on the Gamecube, but that's because of a lack of income.
