The Lyrics

you get it I'm sure.
Verse 1: What I said, sorry don’t mean it!
What I meant, was that I’ve seen it
Now I’m askin’… If you’ll let me retract what I just said? (I’m an idiot)
Yeah, maybe? (Such an idiot)
I’m such a dope (I’m an idiot)
Messed up… (One big idiot)

Verse 2: I don’t wanna say it wrong, I’ll stay strong
But damn girl is that a thong?! Man, that was foolish
All I’m askin’… is that you let me retract all those bad things (just a little bit?)
Maybe (or a lotta bit?)
Won’t say no more (maybe little bits)
Yeah! (okay lotta bits)

Verse 3: You’re about to give me all this power
And so I’ll promise won’t leave you sour
So give me a prompter when I not home! (messed up, messed up, messed up…)
Yeah maybe when I’m at home (messed up really big)
Yeah! (I’ll just retract it)

[Instrumental Break]

Verse 4: Ooooo my messes, bigger than Fuji
‘Cept I don’t make real good sushi
All I want you to do for me
Is forget everything I say! (re-re-re-re-re-re-re-retract!)
Forget it! Listen to me, wait! (please stop listenin’)
Put on headphones, now! (are you listenin’?)

All those words that spew from me!
Take out the R-R-E
Oh!(Talkin’ silly, talkin’ silly, talkin’ silly, talkin’ silly)
A little more tact( Talkin’ silly, talkin’ silly, talkin’ silly, talkin’ silly)
Oh! Yeah! (just a little bit)
But I can retract (more than little bits)

Outro: You’ll get tired (just a little bit)
I’ll keep on tryin’ (just a little bit)
I’m runnin’ out of goof (just a little bit)
No wait, I’m lying (can’t get rid of it)
Stop! Spewing that crap! (re-re-re-re-re-re-re-retract!)

Agrimorfee - April 02, 2014 - Report this comment are gonna hate me, Blayde, but this is not one of your best works. Seemed pretty random, beyond the singer asking about the girl's thong. I should say, the parody was about the singer saying he says wrong things, but not about what he was saying wrong. Get me?

(Artistry) Huh, two "Respect" parodies and both of them are lacking the context to the topic at hand? What are the odds? Yeah, this was fairly good, but coulda used more examples of what the guy was saying that he regretted saying.

There are many people who said something that should never be said, case in point, the idiot from IOC who thinks Brian Boitano is a lesbian. Then again, it is the IOC...

I agree with Agrimorfee and Blaydeman that I think you went more for the title sub than the actual meat and potatoes of this parody. Not an insult just an observation. I think I see what you were doing here but it could have used an extra belt out of the ballpark.

Gotta go with the general consensus on this one that it could have used a few more examples. Maybe if it was a politician saying things to retract, there are plenty of opportunities there. I liked the title sub, but could still use some work.
