The Lyrics

I know it's been covered by a lot of different artists, but no one has parodied the Bee Gees version of this song. I wrote this last night and this morning, thinking about all the LeBron stuff going on and how we are bombarded with so many things that aren't important. DKTOS? "Words".
Pile
A never ceasing pile
A pile of crap I shine for thee
I’ll never let you see the truth
Cause truth could be the death of me
Just hear my golden story
Digest its pow’r and glory,
Feel the fluff
‘Astound’
There is no other verb
What I’m describing, it’s the stuff

Schmooze
A repetitious ooze
I replicate it happily
And buy my clever little words
My hope is to make memories
Don’t blink
And miss my sly routine
Please hear the words I say
It’s only hype
A message that I bring
To keep the sense away

Why think
Just switch on your T.V.
And hear the words I say.
It’s only hype
And hype will make it green
And green will pay the way.

It’s only hype
And hype will mold the scene
A scene I want to play

It’s only hype
A message that I bring
To take your pain away
More words, less filling at the Blogging Baker.

I was incorrect that no one has done a parody to "Words". My apologies to the previous authors. It appears I was alphabetically challenged when I browsed through songs by the BeeGees. Now I know for certain that 'w' precedes 'y'.

Get hype...with 5's! Great as always and hope you'll be joining in future SOTM contests as well!

Great current event topic! Wayyyy too much hype!

Thanks so much Christie and Mark for the v/c's. It just bugs me how much hype trumps things that are important. At least the things that are important to me! Oh, well.
@Christie- Looking for the right time to jump in again with SOTM.

Good take on the media scene, advertising, etc. etc. But to paraphrase the late Johnny Cochran..."If it wasn't for hype, we wouldn't type..."

Very true, Warren! Then again, so many of the things that *are* important are major downers that nobody wants to think about... Great job!
WarrenB - July 13, 2010 - Report this comment
AFW- So true. What would we write about??!! Just need to figure out how to make money off of it.
Bilbopooh- Isn't that always the case, the important stuff we want to push away to make room for more entertaining things? I guess that's we have pharmaceuticals and parodies ;-)

Lebron James is an acronym of L. Ja. bores me.

John- I gave up on pro basketball long ago because the personalities were off the hook and seemed disingenuous toward fans. Got better things to do.
