The Lyrics

Flipping through the channels on my TV screen
Show this reality show unlike anything I've ever seen
A talent show seeking to see who can perform the best
Perform the best and you'll win the contest just be better than the rest
Judged by Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, and some other guy
And they will determine which contestant is really fly
So do your best when it is your turn to sing
So just choose your song don't do anything wrong while you're on the Idol thing

Idol Thing

Idol Thing

I can take judgment by the judge no matter how foul
But he's so mean makes Satan look clean that's what I think of Simon Cowell
This is one reality show that I consider alright
Because it is the best show to crush your dreams in just one night
I usually hear good music from there musical tongue
Heard William Hung the song that he sung his neck I wish I could have rung
Now he is making millions and he can't even sing
The luckiest man in all of the land better thank God for the Idol thing

Idol Thing

Thanks American Idol Thing

Idol Thing

Please Simon, Paula, Please

Twelve people start out try there best to not get cut
But if they make the slightest mistake they will be out on there butt
If you and the judges both think you have the touch and got the feel
And if you win and show enough skin than you'll get a record deal
One of my best friends heart was close to breakin'
When my man Rueben won the contest over Mr. Clay Aiken
My friend sees each show her eyes are like static cling
She'd never go till the end of the show she's watchin' that Idol thing

Idol Thing

She always watch the Idol Thing

Please baby baby please

Idol Thing

Heard this hot young singer sounds just like a singer should
Greatest Idol contestant was Ms. Carrie Underwood
She really knows just how to sing and how to dance
I called the hotline one thousand times to help give her a chance
So I will constantly watch each and every talent show
Whether I'm at home or I'm all alone and I'm on the go
"Cause you never know when you could see the next musical King
Be the next superstar career will go far all started on the Idol thing

Big Star, I know you can do it

Your singing man

Just break out here

Made it on American

Idol Thing

A pretty good parody for the most part, but you typed "there" when you meant "their." Having trouble, are we?
