The Lyrics

Dude enters a wrestling contest of some sort, thinking "Pfft! This should be easy, wrestlin's fake, right?" Never realising that his opponent had the opposite mentality entirely...
Well I, I thought wrestlin' was fake
But I just got speared by some asshole, buddy
Hit so hard it hurt my spleen
Thought that it was all made up
Now you're twistin' my left arm
Hurts a bunch, whole bunch (pain's high)
In over my head, dude
Didn't really think this through
See, I, I entered in this contest, buddy
Thought it would be so easy
But it's turned out not so fun
Resultin' in lots of harm
Mostly from this thug

You pin me right down, buddy
Right down like a wrestler, buddy
Right down, down, down
You pin me right down, buddy
Right down like a wrestler, buddy
Right down, down, down

Ow (ow, ow, ow)
Can't take another suplex, buddy
And wow (ow, ow, ow)
That phoenix splash came right the hell outta nowhere
(Kinda dazed, didn't notice)
Could you cut some slack for me?
Cause I'm not a wrestlin' buff
Watch online recaps for fun
Can't take one more punch

You knocked me right down, buddy
Right down like a wrestler, buddy
Right down, down, down
You knocked me right down, buddy
Right down like a wrestler, buddy
Right down, down, down

This isn't fu-u-u-u-u-u-un
I'm feelin' nu-u-u-u-u-u-umb

Think the ref's sayin' a speech
"Stop! Disqualification!"
I think that means you should stop
No more camel clutch

You just flunked this round, buddy
This round of this wrestlin' contest
This round, round, round
Cause you knocked me out, buddy
Me out with your wrestlin' prowess
Right out, out, out
You could go pro now, buddy
Pro now, be a wrestlin' fav'rite
Pro now, now, now (you screwed it u-u-u-u-u-u-up)
If you weren't banned now, buddy
Banned now, couldn't take directions
Banned now, now, now (worth my spilled bloo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ood)
You pinned me right down, buddy
Right down like a wrestlin' champion
Right down, down, down (you brutal du-u-u-u-u-u-unce)
But blew your chance now, buddy
Chance now, won't be wrestlin' champion
Kicked out, out, out (think I'll pass ou-ou-ou-ou-ou-ou-out)

Everything I know about wrestling comes from The Spoony One and LittleKuriboh. Originally I was going to draw more info from those sources to make a parody about how terrible wresting is these days (with storylines so crap the wrestlers might as well just be repeating the title line for how engaging there are), but that either involved pretending to know more than I do (and copping flack for it) or working that into the parody (which was just clunky as all hell).

I used to love WWF and did a mean Hulk Hogan imitation that would rile folks up! My brother did Randy " Macho Man" Savage. Going to wrestling was one of the clean fun activities we were into 3 decades ago. One friend, a grown man, thought it was real. Nobody told him it was fake and choreographed! So we all had a blast!

Haha! Nice! My sister is huge into wrestling and I'm sure that the wrestling fan of our little group here: Abbott is going to love this one! It would of been cool to see some more references to WWE like certain wrestlers or cage matches or anything like that but this was still a fun parody to a fun song. Also kind of reminds me of that scene in the first Spider-Man movie: BONE SAW IS READY!!!

I easily get confused...why did the opponent get disqualified?

(artistry) Nt a huge wrestling fan, I am however fascinated by that culture, though. This was a lot of fun, but with the structure of the song, did get a bit repetitive. I wish you could've found a few more ways to do those tag-ons in the chorus other than just "buddy". Just a little more creativity there would've been nice. But that's just me nit-picking. Still as solid a parody as Stone Cold's pecs.

Matty, you are completely right...I absolutely love this parody! The original song is one of my favorite one hit wonders of all time and it was a good pairing. I will say that I agree with Blaydeman with the "buddy" part...but I can overlook that (he does say "baby" all the time in the original). Grim, someone can get disqualified (in this case) for refusing to let go of a submission move (in this case, the Camel Clutch) even after the opponent has given up (probably most famously seen in The Rock vs. Ken Shamrock at Wrestlemania 14). I think it was okay to not include famous wrestlers in this spoof, to keep with the amateur theme...but I love this inclusion of the "Out of nowhere" (whether that was intentional or is a very popular meme right now among the wrestling fanbase). Well, I could ramble on for a lot longer, so I'll just wrap up by saying that this is very well done! Great work!
