The Lyrics

A long, long time ago, I can still remember
When the parody votes made me smile
And I knew if I had the chance
That I could make those entries dance
And maybe they'd be funny for a while

But February made me shiver
With every comment I'd deliver
Bad news on the website
I couldn't take one more slight

I can't remember if I cried
When I saw the bogus votes applied
But something touched me deep inside
The day the 13 votes on Amiright died

So bye, bye, those bogus 13 votes
Drove my Chevy to the website but the site was broke
Them good old boys were sharing parodies and jokes
Singin', "This'll be the day that it's fair,
This'll be the day that it's fair."

Did you write the book of witty lines?
And do you have faith in parodies online?
If the humor tells you so?
Now do you believe in voting rights?
Can the community reunite?
And can you teach me how to parody like a pro?

Well, I know that you're in love with puns
'Cause I saw you laugh at all the fun
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, you had nothing to lose

I was a lonely teenage parody writer
With a keyboard and a burning desire
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the 13 votes went amok

I started singin'

Bye, bye, those bogus 13 votes
Drove my Chevy to the website but the site was broke
Them good old boys were sharing parodies and jokes
Singin', "This'll be the day that it's fair,
This'll be the day that it's fair."

Now, for years we've been on our own
And moss grows thick on the parody throne
But that's not how it used to be
When the votes were honest, pure, and free

Oh, and while the king was looking down
The jester stole his golden crown
The writers tried to take the stage
But the trolls filled it with rage

And while McLean read a book on life
The parodists practiced in the night
And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the 13 votes on Amiright sparked

We were singin'

Bye, bye, those bogus 13 votes
Drove my Chevy to the website but the site was broke
Them good old boys were sharing parodies and jokes
Singin', "This'll be the day that it's fair,
This'll be the day that it's fair."

Helter skelter in a parody shelter
The writers flew off with a heartfelt fervor
Eight miles high and soaring fast
Creating masterpieces that would last
The community rejected the shady cast
With the true spirit of parody steadfast

Now the website's filled with laughter's tune
While the parodists write in syncopated rune
We all rise up to the task
Oh, and we have fun at last

'Cause the writers tried to take the field
The funny lines refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the 13 votes on Amiright were healed?

We started singin'

Bye, bye, those bogus 13 votes
Drove my Chevy to the website but the site was broke
Them good old boys were sharing parodies and jokes
Singin', "This'll be the day that it's fair,
This'll be the day that it's fair."

Oh, and there we were all in one place
A parody community embraced
With no more cheating in the race

So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
'Cause honesty is the only friend

Oh, and as I wrote into the night
My hands were filled with words of light
No trolls could break my spirit's height
The day the 13 votes on Amiright took flight

They were singin'

Bye, bye, those bogus 13 votes
Drove my Chevy to the website but the site was broke
Them good old boys were sharing parodies and jokes
Singin', "This'll be the day that it's fair,
This'll be the day that it's fair."

They were singin'

Bye, bye, those bogus 13 votes
Drove my Chevy to the website but the site was broke
Them good old boys were sharing parodies and jokes
Singin', "This'll be the day that it's fair."
