The Lyrics

Tell me if you think this is funny. I think out of all my parodies, I like this one the best... It's about extremist authors, if you didn't get the point at first, and no it has nothing to do with me.
I'm through with bein' called emo,
'cause I like to write,
Nobody else wants to listen to me whine,
So I go and write down what people wanna read;
I'm gonna get some money from my bestseller,
Gonna get rich and buy a timeshare,
Gonna be controversial and land myself on TV;

I wanna write stuff that counts as Propaganda,
Be so right-wing I'm considered a Fascist,
And an extremist image that I carry around with me;

I need a new cult following
of old, bored, women,
Gonna preach to the masses and make a good livin',
Gonna be so infamous that they put me on News TV
[Tell me how ya gonna do that?]

I wanna scam like Oprah
Without the fat,
Gonna target the old lady with her 48 cats!
Gonna mass-market myself 'til I spread
like f*ckin' disease!
[so how ya gonna do it]

I'm gonna write some bullsh*t propaganda,
Glamorize a politician tht I'm a fan of!

'Cause we all just wanna be big Authors,
Write bullcrap stories and mediocre lies,
Everyone but my fans are gonna think that I am a nazi;
I'm gonna be the Conservative Hotsy-totsy,
Gonna market people to otherwise worship me;
But my preacher image won't last too long,
As I spew some swear words as I tell you you're wrong,
Gonna be a complete jack*ss
who calls Leftists "The Commies"

Hey, hey, I wanna be an Author,
Hey, hey, I wanna be an author.

I wanna be generic, like the grocery store,
Have my book sold in walmarts like the one next door!
Fill up the aisles with my Photoshopped image,
Gonna break through the politicially correct line-of-scrimmage!
[oh trust me, it'll happen]

I'm gonna act like a slut who calls everyone f*gs,
Gonna plaster my name on even plastic bags,
Gonna promote my cause to the
point of indecency,

'Cause we all just wanna be big Authors,
Be like cheap Con Artists that look like crack wh*res,
People gonna hate us
For our Fascist ideals,
Gonna be Mussolini in some cheapass heels;
Gonna degrade myself to the point of indecency,
Then I'll sell out for drugs, go on Alchohol binges,
Gonna snap back and tell my fans they're b*tches,
then I'll yell at Liberals some crapass profanity,
Hey, hey, I wanna be an author.

I'm gonna write some book with a cult following
Of some old fat women who believe what
we're preachin',
get caught sayin' "f*ggot" on National News TV;

Well we all just wanna be big Authors,
Write mediocre novels with little concept,
Call everyone else "Commies",
Take what I say from Hitler speeches, my only crowd
Will be the neos!
Gonna be a cheapass hooker with a bible of indecency;

Hey, hey, I wanna be an Author.
hey, hey, I wanna be an author.

I thought it was funny, but a little profanity-laced and controvesial. I can tell you must be a Liberal.
TullyGirl - October 02, 2007 - Report this comment
I am a Liberal. I'm so sick of people like Ann COulter[who this parody is mainly about] calling Liberals bad names. We are people too, Conservatives!

This was mostly good... Could use some improvements in the pacing end, though. But it was very excellent besides that!
Buzz - October 02, 2007 - Report this comment
Wasn't your funniest... but it was oaky, I guess. After reading your "bibliogrpahy" , "food was wasted" was undoubtedly your best work, myabe. Your a good writer, but this just wasn't doing it for me.

Whoa, a great new talent here! TMGLTM (Too many good lines to mention), but "nazi hotsy-totsy" and "promote... to the point of indecency" were two in an overall outstanding concept and accurate description of our times. 555

There is a crowd of veterans here who likes this type of parody very much. I'm sure when they start reading, they'll go for it. You might try reading their songs to see if they'll return the favor (don't need to @$$-kiss, just a perceptive comment that shows that you read it). Check the comments at TT songs to see the writers referred to. Good luck and welcome!

That was an awesome parody... Esp. the lines about Fascists- bwahahaa!!!!!! This was possibly the best thing I've read in a while... Is this, by any chance, somewhat a reference to Ann Coulter?
TullyGirl - October 03, 2007 - Report this comment
Yes it is mostly about Ann Coulter.
