The Lyrics

After two years hiatus, he's back!
For I am lonely, you'll know the reason why
For I am lonely, I'll always live a lie
You can hate so much of me, so much of me it's true
You didn't know what I have just went through

For I'm a phony, phony as hell
You saw what everyone have saw, and now I'm gonna fall
For I'm a phony, phony as hell
The drugs I know I need indeed, the travesty I've freed indeed
Phony as hell, phony as hell

For I'm a phony, the truths were never told
You really hate me, that's why I'm gonna fold
Maybe I'm a cheating punk because I lived a lie
So I won't need to play right through the eyes

For I'm a phony, phony as hell
You saw what everyone have saw, and now I'm gonna fall
For I'm a phony, phony as hell
The fire was burning in me, the wild steroid-fueled side of me
Phony as hell, for I'm a phony
007 Barry Bonds will return in...

Very good Max Power.

Perhaps the performance enhancing substances were actually designed by Q. ;D

Like I've said before, all the records of these guys should have a little syringe next to their names. As a kid, I loved to compare the batting and pitching statistics of ballplayers throughout history. No matter what era, a guy still had to put the bat on the ball and get it past 9 defenders. There is no longer any purity in the numbers now because of these jokers. Batting .555 on this one.

I really don't have an opinion on baseball and PED's, but this was a pretty clever spoof. Nice work

Not until reading this a third time did I get the references Barry Bonds you all were on about. Dunno if that had anything to do with the parody, which came across as interesting, if quite oblique.

(ABC) Wait, this was about baseball? Well, if it wasn't for the steroids and drugs references, I would've guess it was about...absolutely nothing. And even then the drugs just come off as non-sequiters. Yeah, this was just an empty parody, nothing about it was funny or interesting. The only thing that stuck out was "saw what everyone have saw", which just made me cringe.

Yeah. I had no idea this was about baseball either. It seemed very emo to me.
Jeff Reuben - March 04, 2013 - Report this comment
Yeah, I thought this was about a romance gone bad, kind of sad. Still sad if it's about baseball, but a little more interesting/different.

At least he’s an honest phony! My favorite line, “the travesty I've freed indeed”

(ABC) Huh, I remember when Barry Bonds was a big deal... I agree with Matty, it was very emo, but that made it very interesting for me. Not hilarious, but very intriguing.
