The Lyrics

Yeah. I know this might be a waste by re-entering a parody just to change two lines. This song tries to bring a level of social conscience when it comes to becoming too involved in the MLP or EQG fandoms.
Of, the stories that you can tell
Do any ring a bell
For the kids you reach
Can you tell them their dreams
From a banking machine?
The books that they read?
Do you think they’ll succeed?

And when they grow up in age
Trade hands for hooves?
Would you think it is sour?
To believe in magic power?
When you’re earning a wage?
Info that you use
Would pass you by in a fog
For insight into horse news?

How I wish, How I wish they knew fear
They’ve got, magic nonsense
Without any consequence, year after year
Teaching morals as best they can
And all their writing plans
At far or near
Wish they knew fear
It is not connected to the S.A.E.M. Side work currently in progress. Also, I am not sure if this was addressed before, but has anyone tried to upload a video of a cover band performing any of these Am I Right submissions? I am sure that the parody writer would consent to this idea.

I'm not sure how this changed anything from the previous version. Some of us have produced videos on YouTube of our parodies of varying quality , including Below Average Dave, Ethan Mawyer, and (shucks) myself. Are you registered at the sister site in There's a dedicated board in the Amiright forum for Parody Songwriting that would be an appropriate place to discuss further issues about performance if that interests you.
