The Lyrics

Hey guys. On or about Feb. 28 2009 I will be hanging up my keyboard and retiring from parody writing after nearly five wonderful, educational, fun years submitting spoofs here at Amiright. This will allow me to focus my attention on a new creative project that I hope to launch later this year. But before I go, I have a few almost-done parodies hanging around that I'm gonna finish up. I'll post 'em between now and the end of February. For starters, here's a self-attack parody...
Amiright to MasonR
Amiright to MasonR
Take your happy pills and spoof Pat Benetar

Amiright to MasonR
In comments, put down MasonR
Pun omissions? "Dude I'm sending ones to you..."!

This is Amiright to MasonR
Your pacing's really off
And your boss is wondering why you're not all there
And your lyrics beg the question: Should we care?

This is MasonR to Amiright
I hope you aren't bored
And I'm writing in a most peculiar way
And my rhymes are quite indifferent today

For here
Am I writing on my iMac
I'm avoiding work
Deadlines overdue
But I'm writing spoofs for you...

Though I've done two hundred parodies
I don't feel very skilled
But I think my keyboard knows which way to go
And my wife asks me: Will this earn bucks? Don't know.

Amiright to MasonR
Submission's gone, there's something wrong
Please resubmit, MasonR
Please resubmit, MasonR
Please resubmit, MasonR
Can you please...

Here am I writing on my iMac
I'm avoiding work
Deadlines overdue
But I'm writing spoofs for you...
Parody by Mason "odd, I see" Resnick

You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Great work on this song, and good luck with your future endeavors.

Goodbye, Mason. I will certainly miss your parodies and their humorous content, as will most everyone else here on AmIRight, and your thoughtful and funny comments will also be missed. Red Ant nailed it with that "Hotel California" quote. Best of luck with your new endeavors, and 5s on this parody.

Thanks for the 5's and the good wishes everyone. (Red Ant, you may be right about that...). I think in parodies constantly and it's going to be a hard habit to break. Anyway I have a few more parodies coming in the next few days so you're not rid of me quite yet ;-)

MasonR - February 17, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Peregrin, I appreciate the sentiment (although you might feel differently after reading some of my final parodies...)

You're leaving, Mason! :( (T_T) I'm going to miss you lots! Oh, well, you will always be welcome on this site and we'll still be thinking about you. You are such a great friend! I've always enjoyed your parodies and your comical humor. I wish you the very best of luck on your innovative project! You'll always be in our hearts!
