Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Part of my "Shine Brighter Supplemental" self-challenge. YOLO may be past it's peak of bloody-everywhere-ness, but a quick search on Twitter reveals people still use it in an un-ironic sense. Eurgh. Anyway, parody!
You're a moron, man, you're an eejit, ain't ya?
Think you're funny, nobody would do that, well, no duh
Ride 'round town while drunk off your tiiiits
All cause of a phrase that you read off of Twitter
Yes, you're a tool, blood alcohol point-oh-two
That ain't quite 'bove the limit, doesn't excuse you
Explain why you drive like you're on cocaine
Just use your brain, I put blame on that phrase
Say you live, say you live, say you live
Only once, so you act like a dumbshit, uh
So you keep drinkin' cause you're trickin' yourself
That this makes you brave, it just proves your lack of brains, dumbass
Not okay, you'll never stop until you drop
It sounds good, but soon you'll approach a cliff top
Friends say "Go jump, YOLO is what they say"
But the truth is, see, that hashtag is utterly lame
Would you, without alcohol, stoop down this low?
You'd best rethink your dedication to this "YOLO"
Thought you'd know about peer pressure from your teachers
You may call call it self-expression, but I think you need a lesson, oh
Just once you live, man, they say just once you live?
Don't you know that trend's old, is your brain just like a sieve?
You can't just say "YOLO" and try headbutting some bricks
I heard the word on the street that phrase is shit, so you'd better stop

What I said is so, bro, please don't tweet a photo
Of you breaking laws tagged with "YOLO", dumbass motto
Cause I'm real sick of this, real sick, real sick
Jumping on and off a bench and "YOLO" is all you say
Dumb shit, dumb shit, I think you're an utter twit
So cut that "YOLO" bullshit out today, I'm askin' you, stop

On...line bragging rights
That you did stupid things, you're a dumbshite
Isn', so shut up
Your excuse to be douchey or just superbly dumb
You tweet that then you're a twit
One more reason why I despise modern kids
Why won't this fad go? Drop it, please, that's my wish
No more YOLO, I blame Drake for this shit
He did not invent
The phrase, thank God
He only made it a meme
Sounded fine at first, but underneath
There's a part that's ugly
Found a use as excusing kids being dummies
Don't think ahead, kids just live for danger
Then they tweet that they're drivin' drunk, dumb little shites
They crash and while they burn
Tweet, tweet, tweet, nothin' learned:
"holy crap, i think i broke my butt #yolo"

Smashed their dad's Camaro, but they're tweetin' photos
"i cant feel my butt, this was worth the hurtin' #yolo"
See why I'm sick of this, so sick, so sick
Teenagers don't think ahead, pop culture has gone to shit
Dumb twits, dumb twits, yes, I'm really sick of this
So cut that "YOLO" drivel out today, I'm askin' you, stop

"YOLO" needs to stop

I thought "swag" was low, bro, something new that I know
No meme is as bad as that utter bullshit "YOLO"
And I've had with it, it's shit, it's shit
Prior plannin' might be dead, at least with those stupid kids
So sick, so sick, like that Ne-Yo song, I'm sick
Next git who tweets #yolo gets an icepick, I'm beggin' you, stop

Well, that's a new record for me using the word "shite" in a parody. I even got to use "eejit" with it! Huzzah. Yes, I made a reference to the Ne-Yo song "So Sick" in a parody mocking the YOLO trend. I'm weird.
