The Lyrics

This is about how overplayed "Vertigo" was...
Once, twice, three times, 14

The sun goes up
It's bright
That song is in my head
Why should I fight
I'm feeling so annoyed
Than I thought
That song in mind
I sing this song
Making fun of it
Cause mine is better

Hello, Hello
I hate that song called Vertigo [turn it down]
you play it ten times on the radio
in an hour, and I hate it
Why must I hear it
Hear it

The night is full of songs
Melodies rip the sky
With tunes so bold
So U2 thinks they can play rock and roll
We know that they can't sing
But they don't know

Someone get the beat
Now off the radio
I'd hear anything
Except for Vertigo
Come on change the music
Come on change the music

All this, all this I don't want
All of this, all of this I don't want
All this, all of this I don't want
Just get rid of this song
And my ears won't hurt

Hello, Hello
I hate that song called Vertigo
You play it ten times on the radio in an hour
And that song gives me something
I just heard number sixteen ...aaahhh
That's number seventeen ...aaaah
Turn it off

No, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Where's the second chorus? This parody is okay, but the pacings a bit off and despite what other people have said, i didn't find it side-splittingly hilarious. Definately not a 5-5-5

I guess you reported my comments as inapropriate- i'm glad you did, i hate myself for saying mean stuff about your parody- it was actually really good, plus you said good things about my parody of vertigo, and i think i was really mean of me. but i still do like u2 even though i am getting sick of vertigo, i made myself sick of it, i hear it way too much! so you were right about it i think it does get annoying- i apologize for everything, please forgive me! PS- you must think i'm crazy by now for wuiting this whole thing! :)
