The Lyrics

I'm here, I guess i'll stay
Though i'm breaking all the rules you seem to make
My nasty songs, are all the same
Should I write more so i can get the blame?

And i'd love to stay some more
But I shall say no more
Before I'm walking through the door

So why stay?

I think I should have left by now
Your case gets weaker and weaker
I don't think I should stay somehow
This sh*t's deeper and deeper
I'm gonna go show myself out
And i'm not gonna weep but
I've overstayed my welcome now

I'm sick, I won't explain
The fact that I can't go through this again
I should be more careful
Just shut your holes
And if I lose my mind it's your fault not my own

And I would leave you with loose ends
And all my family and friends
This takes up my week-ends
And they'll say

I think you should have left by now
'Cause your there causing trouble
And maybe you should leave them now
Before it turns into double
And maybe you should show them how
'Coz they'e all in a muddle
I think you should have left by now

It's such a shame that I can't say
How good it's been being here today
Can't say I've smiled that much but
I know I've been here a while but
You will never know why
Or hear me apologize
Your confused? Let someone else explain
I couldn't bear coming here again

I think i'm gonna leave here now
I'm gonna enjoy all my weekend
I doubt when I leave here now
I'll come back in 'bout a week but
Somebody better tell me how
Before I lose any sleep and
I think i'm gonna leave right now
Yes i am
So don't you try and stop me now
'Coz your efforts are feeble
Somebody better leave me now
Before the hill gets much steeper
Okay, i'm gonna leave right now

Dumb Ass Kid, April Fools Day was almost 2 weeks ago. DKTOS, so I can't rate it. Just don't burn out man. I know exactly what you mean though. Take some time off ( as I am ) and just let them come to you. There is much more to life than writing parodies ( although I personally love doing them even if they get slammed or few votes/comments ). Despite the fact that you have made quite a few innapropriate statements ( as have I ), you are doing pretty good actually on your song parodies. But if this is a final farewell, I will leave you with this: MANY of the great artists over the past 40 years put out a lot of very good music in a short time only to burn out and disappear. On the flip side of that musical coin, there are MANY great artists who are still here with us. PS- Even the greats have REALLY pissed off a lot of people. I will cite a few examples: 1. Jerry Lee Lewis marrying his 13 year old cousin, which basically doomed his career in the US. 2. Late 60's, John Lennon said The Beatles were ( something to the effect of ) " Bigger than Jesus ", which causes a HUGE backlash. 3. Not as great ( but a good artist anyway ) is when Sinead O'Connor tore up the picture of the Pope on SNL in '92 I think, which basically ruined her career ( they steamrolled her albums and she got booed off stage ). 4. The Dixie Chicks ( who I don't listen to ) went into a tirade on some awards show I believe about the President and got a pretty good backlash as well. There are MANY more examples of this, pissing people off, some recover and some don't. Won't try to convince you to stay if you want to leave. Just take some time off for now. Red Ant out.

Kid, you have talent. Sorry it's not working out for you here, but don't give up the writing.

Live and learn, DAK, don't give up - I'm sure we'll see you back here in a week or so

I think you do need time away to reflect on a few things. You are taking too many things way too seriously. Writing parodies should be about having fun, and giving and receiving reviews should not become a war zone. Take or leave this place, but do so because you want to, not because you felt you were forced to leave.

Kim's right. I can't even begin to say how many times people (encouraged mostly by Michael Pacholek, I think) have tried to force me to leave...but I'm pretty sure it's because I threaten them with my beauty and endless talent. ; )

Thank you to everyone for the fanatstic advice, it is very much appreciated. After a bit of contemplation and time to think things through more thoroughly, I have decided to continue writing parodies for Amiright. The reason I (almost) quit completely is because I had 3 deadlines to meet on Tuesday for sixth form, so all the hassel came at a time when I was already extremely wound up and agitated. I needed it at the time about as much as I needed an extra arse hole, so I decided to leave Amiright for a few days. Don't worry - the deadlines have all been sorted and I am now a completely stress free Dumb Ass Kid, so hopefully I should be able to take your advice into hand and not take everything too seriously. Once again, thank you all for your imput - to be honest I didn't think anyone would care if I left or not, but it seems I have more friends here than I first thought. A huge thank you to everybody and look out for a new parody on the 15/03/2005!!!

Rd Ant, do you live in a cave with an old gramaphone n some old lps how do not hear this modern music
Red Ant to Josh 2 - April 23, 2005 - Report this comment
Yes I live in a cave with a hand cranked grammaphone and severly scratched LPs. That's why they average age of my music is from about 1990. If I DKTOS then it means that I haven't heard it not that is is bad necessarily ( although any parody posted in the 2000s I probably will not KTOS by choice as music today is basically horrible ).<> Does that answer your question?
