The Lyrics

At times we all seem so childish
When we do not get the things we wish
Oh, we don’t see our...

I’m not as bad as my kids can be
I’m sure that you would agree with me
Oh, selfishness comes...

Life is so unfair
We should share our very best
Like the golden rule
But we’re full of selfishness

‘ME’ is such and easy word to stress
And ‘I’ needs its own Park St. address
Where, ‘I’ can park its...

Why ‘ME’ over ‘YOU’
‘I’ don’t know ‘WE’ have to guess
‘I’ will always speak
When ‘I’ reeks of selfishness

‘WE’ is but a token word expressed
When ‘I’ needs someone to fix its mess
Oh, ‘I’ believes in...

Me, me me, me, me, me me

This parody is great. Why? Because I said so. I'll give you a five. On second thought, I'll keep it for myself. Get your own! (Don't worry, you will.)

Started out a little slow, but fourth verse made me laugh out loud. It kept getting better from there. :)
