The Lyrics

I'm fascinated by this art form. It's so cool how a person could make something so beautiful with so little. All they do is fold, nothing else! That's amazing. Google Origami sculptures and you'll see what I'm talking about ;)
Verse 1: We go to eat
We t-take a seat
What is this on my plate?
It looks just like a crane
It’s so beautiful
And a bit unusual
Folded and shaped
With no glue or tape
Not sure what it’s called
But this paper sculpture
Should be kept the same
I know this art’s got a name
So I asked the server “Sir?...”

Chorus: “What do you call this?”
He said that it’s an art so lovely
Invented in the six-teen hun-dreds
“Well, thank you Tommy.”
It’s ori-origami
Paper or some clothe
And I’m so glad that this art wasn’t lost
You can fold some flowers
It’s better than a tsunami

Verse 2: Then we went home
It’s still on my mind
So I went on Youtube
Just to learn how to do
What those people did
So hard to make an orchid!
Paper cuts mount
I can’t figure this out
Don’t get this design, and I think I might cry
It’s so frustrating
But it’s still so amazing
Cuz you know that baby I…

Chorus: I’m its biggest fan
I’ll fold paper until it’s lovely
Baby it’s the great-est in-vention
Since smoked salami
It’s ori-origami
It’s like I’m on crack
Think that I’m an Origa-maniac
Does this have a rehab?
I’ll be in like good pastrami

Bridge: Relapse, I’m sculpting a small masterpiece
Fold, fold, its revenge from the Japanese
Won’t stop, for anyone
It’s so wrong, but it’s so damn fun!

Chorus: You could make a crop
Or you could make a flock of cloth geese
Baby there’s no lim-its long as
It’s a bird with moxie
Darn ori-origami!
Clothes and books beware
Cuz I may make some groups of birds in air
Baby I’m addicted
To making paper less floppy

I don't think I've ever read a parody about Origami before and I'm loving it. This doesn't read anything like a normal Blaydeman parody either because you switched the choruses up and I'm loving it!

Nothing cannot be parody subject matter, this proves it! The rhymes for the title were out of sight, and the narrator having a hard time folding and cutting was funny too!

Excellent stuff - I've just been asked by a colleague if there's anything I haven't written a parody about, and surpringly origami is in that list- I say "surprisingly" because I've been doing origami for over thirty years.

ABC: Not bad, I love the OS but I think I would have loved to see the topic pushed more. Have the main character become SO obcessed with creating origami that he gets thrown into rehab or something. I know you kinda touched on it, but I would love to see what origami rehab is like...I bet it's beautiful. haha nice work!

(ABC) Ingenious! I had a phase of paper-crane-making a few years ago. I made them ever so tiny, just to confuse people. Fantastic parody, TMGLTM, 555 paper cranes!

Um. . .as simple as it was, I actually really liked this. Abbott kinda hit the nail on the head, but regardless this was a great parody idea and fantastically executed.
