The Lyrics

Smile! Parody, smile!
Smile! Parody, smile!
Smile! Parody, smile! (Smile like hell!)
Smile! Parody, smile!

We write fair heap o' parodies
We muse and pun on little site called Chucky G's
Some went number one, the voter's choice
And it was our ambition to be good as Royce!

My name is Merry, en-'gend'rin' strife
With ol' Pip I'll tell ya stories of a Hobbit's life
At Amiright took a look around
Politic songs of Tong they really got us down

So Mer said to Master Pippin, who said "Yo Merry?"
"GOP knows our ditties could be scary"
So we made our selection and spoofed on warring
Before you know it, that got boring

Then we discovered fun in genderland
We said "Malcolm baby, wanna be our man?"
He said "Whatcha got Hobbits? Snatches or tools?"
We said "How about guessin'? Ain't no rules!"

To rhyme or not to rhyme?
A question so sublime
Want songs to make it to the top
We're writing parodies
Spoofin' songs at Chucky G's
Vote rigging on the site was stopped
Claude and Ethan saved the party
Con-tests employed for parod'arty

Write "Lawns all Lumpy," "Sleepin' with Paul"
Myriad of subjects we just did 'em all
Borrow, Fridges, Prozac, Bowler
Dryers ate Socks & Shopping Carts won't roller

We were emailin' songs 'cus we did sep'rate parts
And "What's Inside A Sausage" song went top of the charts
Soon had to choosepoop and to usepoop for enhancing too
And we did a dunny song of Ringo's "Boogaloo"

We were writing songs we wanted, some were rated with 'X'
Then came ol' Chucky's voice, and said "OY! - NO SEX!"
We were confounded but solved that prob of sexual lack
Started penning body functions and churning hits with scat
Let's not forget ol' One Guy - that pest
He spattered his mud about on some of our best
So smile! Smile! Parody, smile!
Because we ripped it to that bugger, sardonic style

To rhyme or not to rhyme
Where should we draw the line?
Find balance, then the penny drops
Must find the recipe
The song just has to be
Perfectly paced parody schlock!
Say the chorus sucks and the verse seems down?
Well if it's slack, will get thumbs down

Boo it, voters boo it

We've got rhymes in our minds like "Refridge that Kitty"
And we kept it in the pink with Flamingos (Sh*tty)
We were Out of Prell, and Tasting Goo
Gained a groupie - name o' Mandamoo!

We Sporked Poor Hans Blix on the Subway train
Flat Cones, Blistered Lips, and the House Won't Drain
Plat'lets all around in Arterial Walls
Studied a Fluke, and was throwin' Paintballs

While Hyundais were Humming, we were Steelin' Buns
Nad Tryign ot type hwile Dyslexian
We received a wound from a Folding Chair
Introducin' our buddy, 'george-with-the-red-hair'

To rhyme or not to rhyme
I ask you one more time
We will keep writing till we drop!
We're writing parodies
so would you please
Go vote 'em, please don't let 'em flop

We Stopped Our Brain
P*ssed off PETA
Won't deny the rumors we're 'Marge and Tina'!
To rhyme or not to rhyme
It's harmless pass-the-time
We're beggin' please don't call the cops!
Those 'op' lines vexin' me
All the flop, stop, drop's sloppy
Ah hell, let's just say apropo..p

Oreos! Alvin! Rick Duncan!

Amiright! Renowned!

Ve haff vays of MAKING you vote!


Coin, coin; internal rhyme
Catchy little prefix
Ideal text lines...

Finden Sie "'postrophe?"


Comin' here to tella 'bout the likes of us
No one's figured it's _____ and ____!

An Amiright history lesson and some shameless self-promotion..all in one tasty meal! The enigma of Merry and Pip still stands! 555

To Be or Not To Be was one of my favourite films, but I never thought of this as a source song... ah well, I'm sure it came from under the aspidistra somewhere.

I'm still fairly new to the site so am not familiar with all the references, but this prodigious effort is a good intro--thanks.
