The Lyrics

Hey There Am I Right

Hey there Am I Right
What's it like in Massachusetts?
I'm a thousand miles away
And I am trying hard to do this
But I’m stuck
Writing these parodies takes pluck
I really suck

Hey there Am I Right
I have enjoyed all of the writers
And they always get me laughing
So I’m pulling this all-nighter
Just to do
What they’ve done, and get them laughing too
I swear it’s true

Oh, I can’t write parody
Oh, I wish I had the key
Oh, perhaps some potpourri
Oh, would help my parody
Wish I could parody

Hey there Am I Right
This is really getting hard
But just relieve my pain
And approve this lame attempt to be a bard
But it’s not good
I’d make it better if I could
You know I would

Hey there Am I Right
I've got so much left to say
If every funny song I wrote to you
Would make you laugh all day
I'd write them all
You know we could really have a ball
You make the call

Oh, I can’t write parody
Oh, I wish I had the key
Oh, perhaps a warranty
Oh, I need a guarantee

An entire song seems pretty large
I’ve tried and tried but can’t take charge
My burden now begins to heavily weigh
I guess you’d all make fun of me
But I'll just laugh along because I’m free
And my song would be on display
Am I Right, I’m warning you
If by chance I don’t get through
My life will never ever be the same
But I’m to blame

Hey there Am I Right
You are great and you won’t miss me
Two more years and I might be finished then
Right now it’s just a mystery how it’s done
You know I tried to make it fun
I hoped this would be a real good one
Looking for clues but I have none
Can’t make a pun

Oh, I can’t write parody
Oh, I wish I had the key
Oh, perhaps some potpourri
Oh, would help my parody

Thank God it's just a dream

Pretty nice Am I Right tribute, and the pacing is fine if I remember the original correctly. 555.
