Parody Song Title:

"The Way It Was"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

A statement on the James Frey falsified memoirs story
That were written by James Frey
In "A Million Little Pieces"
Aren't The Way It Was..

Published memoirs
Mostly proven all a lie
Picked by Oprah for her book club
(But) Not The Way It Was..

Can it be, publicity,
and all a plan?
Say it's true...then, make up every line
How should we judge Frey,
Is he an evil man?
..Buy it? Read it?
Should we?

A fantastic book, and yet
All the readers have been cheated
When it's not truth that they get

Are lies the story
That people will remember?
Whenever they remember
The Way It Was,
James Frey's memoirs....
