The Lyrics

so you wanna be an amiright star
just listen now...to what i say
just get an old song you can mar
then make up rhymes...to twist it some way
and...if it has a bite
and the pacing's tight
its gonna be alright

given time...the votes come 'round
hope your fellow man...don't let you down
if your jokes go down easily
there'll be comments there
hope you get your share

but if it stinks like poo
they're gonna slam your art
they're gonna tear you apart

you'll gain some fame...folks may give you acclaim
when they know you're not lame, they will seek out your name
no money to claim...but in that there's no shame
if your song's above par...you're an amiright star

la...la la la la la la ...la la la la la...la la la la la

In my youth, I wanted to be a rockstar. Now that I'm adult, I find its more sensible to be an Amiright star, although some cash for parodies would be fine. 555
