The Lyrics

Part of my "Something to Believe In" self-challenge. We've all seen big media events not do quite as well as we'd hoped, whether we're the consumer or the creator. Here's the story of a friend of the latter trying to instil a little restraint in his upset friend...
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh

Your big thing flopped, so you wanna whine, it's best if you don't now, buddy
Can't say it bombed, it's only day one, just slow down, buddy
No need to flip, turn Twitter's tab off and Youtube also now, buddy
Let's take a look at the facts before you call ev'ry critic a big twat

Tired of you callin' "bomb" all because not one day-one record was cracked
It's not an MCU flick or a brand new Beyoncé album, got that?
You can't expect seven billion dollars, stop stompin' on your fancy hat
Not lookin' like it's a Pluto Nash level disaster, it's well above that, ayy
I'm thinkin', maybe, in fact, ayy, if you just sit and relax
Might be a sleeper hit, so just hold on, wait and see it close on the gap, ayy
And if I'm wrong, which I can be, you could be in real deep crap
Wait until more stats come in, goin' crazy looks bad
Just look sad when you're mad, damn, buddy

Did your thing flop? Just hold on the whine, could still be a "no" now, buddy
Too soon to bomb, take some Tylenol and slow down, buddy
The more you flip, the more folks will run, then you'll really blow now, buddy
You need to cut out the crap right now or else your reputation will crack

No, I'm not kiddin', relax
It's not an image that one can shake off that easily, it's a fact
Don't wanna be like that DJ Khaled, well, at least we know you've done shit
Not a producer, some vague-ass connecter, just shouts his own name like a twit
Man, what a baby, shit, I got distracted, let's get back to you and your shit
It doesn't look good, look like a brat, okay?
Turnin' bright red in the face when he doesn't get cake
Get out of the public space, scream with pillows in your face
Before any statement's made right now
Low debut? Best not get pissed, goin' crazy looks bad
Throwin' tantrums looks sad, damn, buddy

Deal with the flop, there's no need to whine, first part's still unknown now, buddy
Not in the bag, chance the money flow won't slow down, buddy
So you're at six? A chance you'll move up, there's no way to know now, buddy
This is no way to react, callin' the top five above you total hacks

I know you worked hard on your big precious thing
And the result that you got has to sting
Top of the list woulda rocked, that I get
But you're not right at the bottom, you didn't
Easier to fix when not in a big ditch
If it was me, I wouldn't regret it
Read the reviews to see what needs fixin', yeah
Were all my themes less subtle than a beatin'?
Was the performance quality uneven?
Might've not thought out the day of release
Could've run head-to-head with Batman, couldn't beat it
No chance there, believe it
So instead of flippin' shit, goin' crazy, screw that
Just looks sad bein' mad, damn, buddy

Seems like you flopped, but don't go and whine 'til you for sure know now, buddy
Act like an ass and then it will bomb so slow down, buddy
Bein' a twit, a total moron about what's unknown now, buddy
Won't get the people to stand with you, no, you'll just get a mockin' hashtag

In case you were wondering, the reason why yesterday's parody had a full-stop (or period to the Americans) after every field was because my fast-flying fingers musta hit the Num lock key and screwed up my habit of pressing Delete to make sure there's no extraneous spaces. In other trivia: DJ Khaled did indeed through a hissy fit when his album Father of Asahd failed to debut at number one. And part of the reason that UHF didn't do as well commercially was because it ran up against the first Tim Burton Batman, as well as Ghostbusters II, the third Indiana Jones and a bunch of other big films. Whoops.
