"Wanna Be Fighting Someone"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

“Want you to hit me as hard as you can”
Cause I wanna be fighting someone
I think we should start a Fight Club
Cause I wanna be fighting someone

I will clobber your shoulder (Pow! Pow!)
While we’re down in the gutter (Pow! Pow!)
Whack you with a fiddle (Pow! Twang!)
That might sting a little (Pow! Pow!)

Till you pray that it’s over (Pow! Pow!)
I will mold you like butter (Pow! Pow!)
You’re scrawny and brittle (Pow! Pow!)
These few scars make you nimble (Pow! Pow!)

Every Friday you’ll see your doctor
Cause on Thursday you will have a beat down
While we’re boxing in the streets
Just wondering what you’ll break now

Hey Kids! Do you like violence?!
Toss your games out in the rubbish
You’re forced to keep a vow of silence
If you shut your trap you’ll be fighting someone

Dude you’re going to bleed from somewhere
But don’t you try to yank on my hair!
And you’re going to be breaking some bones
Except when you’re fighting alone

Use the headlock or choker (Gag! Gag!)
Don’t you dare bring that gun here (Boom! Boom!)
Bash his skull with a cymbal (Clang! Clang!)
And he’ll be seeing triple (Ow! Ow!)

Try the tricks in this folder (Pow! Pow!)
Yes, There’s more if you wonder (Pow! Pow!)
Shove your fist in his dimples (Pow! Pow!)
Make his jaw unstable (Pow! Pow!)

You fought all the thugs from the hood
They were tough and yet you still stood
Cause without their knives and razors
They are weaklings wearing blazers

Don’t you start that crying
Cause Band-Aids we’re supplying
If you feel like you’re dying
Then you should train at fighting

You think you want to be beating someone
Stress relieved by kicking some bum
Your doctor said stop drinking all of that rum
And then stop fighting while your drunk

No hitting the belt or lower (Pow! Pow!)
Cause his voice will get higher (Eee! Hee!)
You’ve lost teeth can’t nibble (Pow! Pow!)
And your dentist trembles (Eww! Eww!)

In battle with a chauffer (Beep! Beep!)
Drives limos, He’s no boxer (Pow! Pow!)
From his nose blood might dribble (Drip! Drip!)
Can he still haul people? (Honk! Honk!)

In the hospital (In the hospital)
Need a physical (Need a physical)
You need stitches (You need stitches)
Surgeon general (Surgeon general)
Fix my arm and leg (Fix my arm and leg)
In the hospital (In the hospital)
When Advil won’t do (When Advil won’t do)
I need medical (I need medical)


While at work you’re always limping
With those crutches you are gimping
And your shirt has those blood splatters
A promotion doesn’t matter

In basements we’ll keep fighting
Pulled off your ear when I’m biting
Because I feel so enlightened
When I’m here beating the crap out of someone

You know I want to be kicking some ass
While we’re wrestling out in the grass
And then I might knock some teeth out
As I shove my foot deep in your mouth

Run down with a lawnmower (Chop! Chop!)
Or perhaps a steamroller (Squish! Squish!)
Burn your face on the griddle (Fry! Fry!)
And then get wet with spittle (Pa-Tooie!)

Getting bitten by Rover (Ruff! Ruff!)
Are you allergic to clover? (Achoo!)
With the stick that I whittled (Cut! Cut!)
You’re stabbed in the nostril (Stab! Stab!)

Go see Doctor Bill (Go see Doctor Bill)
At the hospital (At the hospital)
He might save you (He might save you)
If some cash you pull (If some cash you pull)
You’re so bloody (You’re so bloody)
It looks terrible (It looks terrible)
Something’s wrong with you (Something’s wrong with you)
Visit hospitals



Boo-Hoo!!! Ow!

Don’t you cry like a wussy (Pow! Pow!)
Cause we ain’t playing footsie (Pow! Pow!)
You will be called a pussy (Pow! Pow!)
If there’s pain in your tushie (Pow! Pow!)

If kicking butt is your wish
Than you just may be Irish
And although blood’s not stylish
Still kicking butt is your wish

I said you’re gonna be tasting pavement
Hope missing teeth ain’t a lament
And you feel you’re whole body’s painful
Your t-shirt is bloody stain filled

When you’re beat with a hammer (Swing! Swing!)
There is nothing more funner! (Hee-hee)
Forced to limp and stumble (Trip! Trip!)
You know you might tumble (Fall! Fall!)

You got bit by a hamster (Rat! Rat!)
Then got hit with a crowbar (Pow! Pow!)
All these drunks won’t act civil (Pow! Pow!)
Dropkicks make them giggle (Swift kick!)

If you like to fight
Then let those fists unfurl
You have no fear of blood
And don’t mind it if you hurl

Your friends can hurt you now
Because you want them to
And they’ll punch you in your face
It’s what they like to do!

Finally finished!

I’m in pain but not done till I break my jaw
---(Repeat until you’re too hurt to continue)---

You took the OS and BEAT IT! I wasn't too sure if this would be funny, but the way you kept building it, you throttled me into giggles.

Wow! What a workout! Whew! Didn't see the movie but giggled at the parody. 5-5-5. To your corners.

(SOTM) Epic lyrical effort, man, you kept this entertaining throughout with wonderful couplets. No hitting the belt or lower (Pow! Pow!) Cause his voice will get higher (Eee! Hee!)

You really McMann-handled this one there Matt. Hit him so hard that he'll starve to death rollin'.

You got a fight
Glen S - October 13, 2008 - Report this comment
Great lyrical work Matt. I think this may inspire me to try this song in the future. I was giggling as well, what with the hampsters, and cymbals and all.
EmiLoca - October 15, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM - Auuugh, was the Michael Jackson picture montage on the video reaaaally necessary?! Not your fault of course. You literally beat this one to death: at many points I wondered if you'd run out of random objects to employ in your beat-down, but I was not disappointed.

(SOTM) Nice job. Bit violent though!

(Idle) A lyrical tour-de-force here, Matt. Superb job varying the choruses to keep the humor and interest going. Excellent work on the backing "yeah-yeah"s as well.

(Eyedole) Let it be known that I commented on this before I was aware that it would be submitted as an Amiright Idol entry. See above comments.

SOTM- Great use of onomatopoeia! ("pow", "squish", etc)
bobpiecheese - October 29, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Well, this sure blows my parody of this OS outta the water, or at least outta the boxing ring. Very creative, and nice job on subbing that annoying "Mama se, mama se, mama co sa". 555 for you (and a right hook for the 111-er)!

(Idol) Um, well, my comment won't be so short here (though it may be when I get to the SOTM comment) Ok, to get the nags out the way, I've always had a problem with "Funner", unless used in a song where improper speaking was the way the OS goes, which isn't MJ's thing. (Same with Ain't, double negatives etc), but I can easily fix that, also reminds me a lot of my own parody "Beat You in the Fight", BUT I'm only pointing that out because you like to do that to me when my ideas draw similarities to other work ;) I personally have no problem with that, because as long as it's done differently and well--which you did. Your rhyme scheme as a whole was cute, a couple of odd stretches, but you almost have to on this song not to make it a bunch of repetitive nonsense. . .A few of your references were fantastic and really stood out--particularly "Hey Kids, Do You Like Violence", and the Mike Tyson reference. Also "footsie" with "wussy" was really very creative. Easily 5 worthy, will it be tops in Idol? I have 3 to read, but you set the bar high.

(SOTM) See (directly) above (replace "Idol" with "SOTM" in last question)

Great job !!!Kudos for taking on this OS Matty. 555 black eyes for you.

I've somehow never seen "Fight Club," but I've got a general idea of it to go on, and you did a great job with this. Kudos!
Matthias - August 12, 2010 - Report this comment
You don't really need to see Fight Club to understand my parody the actual movie is a lot more than just people beating the crap out of each other. There's some serious dark stuff with vigilantism (putting people into enough fear that they change their lives). If I really wanted to write a parody about the movie I would have had to put in the line: "His name is Robert Paulson". No, This parody was inspired by fight club but basically is how to beat another person up by extremely unconventional means.

(Artistry) A real 'knockout", Matthias(That was a great movie!!!)

As I said, you got a fight and a potential contender. Some of the lines looked like slap-sticks but that what made it funny. 555 punches in the face!

(Artistry) I found it very funny that you would run over your opponent with a steamroller and burn his face off on a griddle, and then stick clover in his face to make him sneeze. I hope you've worked out all your violent tendencies by writing this. :-)
