The Lyrics

For those who don't know Sanjaya Malakar is the worst contestant on AI almost ever, yet he;s still made the top 7, he's had more publicity than he deserves and yeah this explains more
Its now Tuesday night, time to turn the TV on to FOX
American Idol’s on , time to hear 7 people’s voice box
They’re gonna sing
But 6 are pretty good, except for the long haired youngest guy
He’s gonna sing
He’s so bad yet every week, manages to survive
Yeah that one guy’s

His name’s Sanjaya Malakar
And he’s always been safe from the bottom 3 except twice
Had crazy hairdos, some a fright
You’re voting for dear life till he’s kicked off, on Wednesday night

You hear the results
And realize that he’s still on the show
Ya know Sanjaya he can’t sing or dance he freakin blows
Because of him no more Chris Sligh or Gina Glocksen
And 14 other people from semi finals through top 10
It’s about time

Just vote Sanjaya, off tonight
Cause every week his hairdo beats his singin’
He shoulda left before Top 9
His fauxhawk hairstyle was so killer, ciller that night

Had two good songs
The nights of top 11 and top 8
He made some 13 year girl cry one night
(She freakin; cried)
Tonight is your last night

Sung by the idols
You’re same age as me, but you cater to girls older than five
Got more nerves than you, but from me people don’t run for their lives
I don’t wanna hear you sing when you’re under the weather
Chris, Phil, LaKisha
Audience, please don’t dial his number on your screens
Cause he can’t sing!

All 6:
Tomorrow it’s San-jaya’s night
Ryan :
Cause you make me look straight, when you hula in my sight
Dawg, you’re a killer
Of delight
So let me give you this critique her : You were horrible, so awful
Crappier this night

Audience across the land
See that phone that’s in your hand?
Vote for all the other six
So Sanjaya’s career gets fixed
His hairstyles are really weird
Don’t think he could don a beard
His fans are aged under fourteen
They’re all girls who need ears cleaned
Hear that sound that’s in the air?
All your fans no longer care
You’re the reason this season dull
All your votes are possibly bull
And though each week you survive
It makes us non fans quiver
For the other idols can resist
You leaving this week!

(into maniacal laugh by the idols, Ryan, the judges, the audience, and even Sanjaya in a semi girly laugh in deep echo)

Don't worry Jack I thought this was OK. What do u think of my Thriller parody 'Plasma'?
stuart mcarthur - April 17, 2007 - Report this comment
even I've heard of him and the ridiculous sitn, here in Aust. - fantastic idea Jack (the name fits perfectly in that OS) and I had no trouble with the pacing - some good wordplay too - 555

Good story and synopsis of what's happening on AI...fine job

Thanks Jason, yeah I saw that. Stu and AFW!

(SOTM) This is absolutely 454. Very funny all the way, but I could not pace any of the verses. How could you not rhyme the last word in Vincent's rap with "QUIVER"?!

Agri: I simply couldnt think of anything, and wanted to put a line like that somewhere Oh yeah, and this paordy is magical, cause Sanjaya got voted off THE NEXT DAY after this was posted

(SOTM) Maybe it's a problem with versions, but I too had trouble with pacing. But it is funny. I wuz gonna do a Sanjaya parody to Rosanna by Toto, but too late now.

Terribly good.

(SOTM) Sanjaya puts out more crap than me!

I don't watch American Idol, so I don't really have much knowledge of this guy except for the fact that he has worse hair than Donald Trump.
Peter Andersson - May 20, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - Now look what you've done, first you made me look up what "fauxhawk" means, then you made me look up what it looks like and now I can't stop wonder if that's a fad we have to look forward to over here next year! (Not that our own AI type shows are any better, he-he...). :-)

(SOTM) Vote JACK WILSON for AmiRight Idol !! ;-) Clever work here, Mr. Wilson -- a great way to pop the zit of pop-culture!

(SOTM) Pace wise it works, but it was hard to follow the way it's laid out. . .regardless this one was written pretty well.
Michael McVey - May 23, 2007 - Report this comment
I pretty much agree with Agri, except I gave it a 455 because I didn't see enough of a problem to dock the overall score.
bobpiecheese - May 24, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I had trouble pacing it, but it was still quite funny.
Red Ant - May 25, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I haven't watched Am Idol in years, but I was still able to follow the story here, Funny work, Jack, especially "Randy: Dawg, you’re a killer/ Paula: Of delight". "or Gina Glocksen" was a great sub for "imagination". It was a bit hard to follow in spots, but not enough to dock ya for it. Sanjaya is gone now, yay!
stuart mcarthur - May 25, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) see above, and actually on re-read, I liked the clever Vincent Price monologue bit at the end best of all Jack, although the brilliant chorus sub of "His name’s Sanjaya Ma! la! kar!" was fantastic too
Jason - May 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Very good. I liked it.

(SOTM) Meh...this was only okay. The pacing was shoddy at best and you could've done more with the humor. Sorry Jack, but I gotta be honest here.
Mikey Squirrel - May 30, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM- I'm not a fan of American Idol, but my wife is and updates me on it all the time (whether I like it or not). Your pacing was a little off, but still a good job, Jack.

SOTM - I never followed American Idol. I've always thought these reality shows are stupid and so are most of the people who compete on them.
Kristof Robertson - May 31, 2007 - Report this comment
Great idea, Jack...but my usual gripes about poor pacing and rhyming apply here. If you don't get those two right, all the good work you do with making a parody funny is kind of spoiled. Sorry,mate...this didn't really work for me. 444
Ethan Mawyer - May 31, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) This was a good concept, but you did run into pacing and rhyming problems along with the phrasing being awkward occasionally. For what it's worth, this seems like it could be a Chris Bodily TM (post-britney obsession) parody.

Thanks guys! Matthias, you're right, and poomaster, I sadly do agree.
Jack Wilson - October 13, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks again everyone! And guess what? Sanjaya got voted off the NEXT DAY after this was posted!
