The Lyrics

aw man writers block stinks I know what your thinking technically by writing this I DID write a new parody but still...
once in a while
sometimes I will feel the urge
to write a brand new parody song
by submitting new lyrics
here at amiright
but I can't seem to write a new song here to save my life
and deep in my mind
ya wanna know what drives me mad?
is that I can't think of words for this part
I hope to match the pacing
and to be funny too
but when you have this writer's block
that's really hard to do

and I Can't Write A Song
this writer's block's gone on too long
I could make a CD from the song's I have done
now I Can't Write A Song

Oh I come to this site
it was made by Chucky G
and I try to get inspired for a sonG

yeah I Can't Write A Song
(nuh uh oh no) it's been bugging me all day long
I could make a CD of the stuff I have done
and I can't write a song

when I first came on here
my writing skills were bad
I think my first parody's one of the worst this site's had
but at least I was writing
alot of parodies
and now I am all out of good idee's ("ideas" sorry for the desperate rhyming)

I Have Writer's Block
it feels like someone kicked my... gut
I could make a CD of the stuff I have done (I really could)
now I Can't Write A Song

I Can't Write A Song
(this really stinks I hate it)
this writer's block's gone on too long (ya know it has now)
think I'll make a CD from the stuff I have done (would you guys buy it?)
'cause I Can't Write A Song

I Can't Write A Song
(blah blah blah yadda yadda)
it stinks like crud
what's going on? (I don't deserve this!)
I can't make a CD 'cause I just don't want to (did you hear that?)

do not mention this song in one of your parodies without permission (ask in comments) and certainly "Don't Download This Song" (like there's anywhere you could anyways right?)
OH and if your wondering the line "(did you hear that?)" refers to the line which "Weird Al" sings in the original version at that point you will need to turn your volume up to hear it though

555, especially for all the self-referential jokes. That was cute.

Sir, this is quite good ! You took your "writer's block" and put it to good use. Bravo!

Your lament reminds me of part of the OS of CCR's Lodi.

The man from the magazine said I was on my way.
Somewhere I lost connections, ran out of songs to play.
I came into town, a one night stand, looks like my plans fell through
Oh ! Lord, Stuck in Lodi again.

Been there done this and tried to pen a parody on my T-shirt to break the block. Don't know how to get out of it but eventually your creativness will return. Gotta give ya fives and encouragement just because you poured your heart out about your dilemma and the parody is not bad either. There is some creativity in the CAPs lock portion. Ha been there and done that too. Thanks for writing even though you got the blocks. Most of my parody ideas come from playing the same music over and over again until the songs get stuck in my head and then I hear other things in the words. If you notice I sometimes do the same artist over and over again days on end. This is how that happens. Might want to give that a try. It works for me but I've never tried it during a block. Good luck Jonathan.
