The Lyrics

In 1987, two songs with very repetitive lyrics came out - George Harrison's "Got My Mind Set on You" and R.E.M.'s "The One I Love". Both became major hits, and the former was parodied for its lyrics by "Weird Al" Yankovic as "(This Song's Just) Six Words Long" a year later. This parody of "The One I Love" is in the mold of Weird Al's George Harrison parody. It is in jest and I actually enjoy the R.E.M. song.
This song is just about nine words long
This song says the same things over and over
It doesn't have a lot of lyrics, no
This song is just about nine words long

Repetitiveness (x2)

This song is just about nine words long
This song repeats the same verse only three times
It loses points in originality
This song is just about nine words long

Repetitiveness (it's coming back to the same verse) (x2)

(Guitar solo)

This song is just about nine words long
This song has the same thing repeated three times
The writer is a lazy bum that's right
This song is just about nine words long

Repetitiveness (it's coming back to the same verse) (x4)

You took it literally, which is funny. In a non-funny way. Or non-funny in a funny way.

This song rips off Weird Al's (This Song's Just) Six Words Long!
