The Lyrics

This is my 10th parody submission to amiright so I wanted to give a nod to some of the authors whose works speak for themselves. Some have commented on my parodies and I've commented on some of theirs so this is a way to say thanks for keeping us laughing. Besides, it's the Christmas season and we can all use some peace on earth and good will to men, no:?
By the time I make my selection, they’ll be writing
Words to a song, to make a parody
They’ll laugh, smirk and joke at their creation
Cause they beat me to the draw just like before

But let’s give credit to the ones who do the thinkin’
Like conqueror of parodies, Robert A and airfarcewan,
Jonathan and Johnny Nguyen—they’ll keep on crankin’
Songs funny and some just off the wall—that’s all

By the time I get completed, they’ll be finished
Prob’ly looking for another song to do
And they’ll find another work to make a funny
Parody to make again and so--
Best wishes, don’t you know!
Keep up the good work and happy parodies, everybody!
