The Lyrics

I've noticed that there are a lot of people writing parodies every day here, and some of the songs are fantastically funny. I decided to write a song about the parody writers of the world. If you are one of us, then this song is dedicated to you. If you're not, then I hope you enjoy it anyways.
1. When I write a
When I write a parody
I'll always try to write something that you

Will laugh at
Laugh at hysterically
Try to time out all the words too

Sometimes it screws up
Yeah, it screws up horribly
Even I gotta look at it and say p u

So I'll rewrite
And rewrite some more
Until I think that it's ready to view

But I won't stop trying to make you smile
And if you do, I'll write some more
Until I write the perfect song that makes you
Pee your pants, and fall on the floor

2. I know that
That I'm not Jerry Reed
Or Ray Stevens, or even Weird Al too

But I'll try to
Try to write some comedy
Laughter is the cure for the blues

The world is fightin
The world ain't too funny
The war is always on the news

So I'll take comedy
No one likes to laugh at tragedy
There's a fine line that's drawn between the two

3. When I check out
When I'm on the gurney
And when my skin is turning a shade of blue

Then it's over
My songs are history
But I hope at least one of them got to you

When I walk up
Up to the Pearly Gates
When St. Peter says, "What can I do for you?"

I'll say I was someone
Who tried to make people laugh
And hopefully he says, "Good job, you can go on through!"

I don't know if writing parodies is the ticket in, but it's gotta get you more brownie points with the big guy than spreading hate. We all have to laugh nowadays before we realize all of the stuff to cry about. Thanx Alvin

I wonder what St Peter would make of Malcolm turning up there... A fun parody (I've just done this song, myself). So tell me, Michael - any relation to Rick?

How nice. I try to write out laughs daily but I need to do something more Maybe I'll get a microphone and some of my songs I'll record.

Phil... Malcolm to St. Peter: "Mind if I call you Dick?" Good stuff here, Michael, and I, too, am curious if you are related to Rick Cormier (helluva parody writer who also posts here).

Thank you for your positive comments, friends. I appreciate it. As for being related to Rick, I've been asked that before, and the answer is no. (not that I'm aware of, that is) Where I come from in NB, Canada, the name Cormier is very common up here. Thanks for asking. Charnstar, I'd recommend making them laugh themselves to death.
