The Lyrics

IM--DB, a website to see
Look all over inside to find some movies
It shows much variety
Lists ’em by genre, director, or alphabetic’ly
If you’re in a movie mood
The end-all be-all for reference, fer sher, dude
Yesterday, on a surfin’ spree
I found all these randomly selected movies

Don’t Look Now, Sasquatch and Hoodwink’d,
Kindergarten Cop, Blink,
That Thing You Do, Basquiat, Superman,
And Rumble Fish and Soap Dish, and Be Like Mike,
Little Miss Marker and Rudy,
Bullitt, Se7en, and The Running Man,
Thank God It’s Friday, The Best Of Times,
Big, Pat & Mike, S*P*Y*S*
Zardoz, All About Schmidt, Tru,
And also Puttin’ On The Ritz,
Erin Brockovich, The Spy Who Loved Me, Hannibal, Blue,
The Missouri Breaks, also Earthquake,
Piranha, Lincoln, Layer Cake
And The Gorilla, The Sweet Hereafter, also Neighbors,
And Vertigo, El Dorado,
Cousins, Insidious,
And How To Be A Player,

The King And I, Withnail And I, The Brown Bunny, Amistad
To Have And Have Not, 8 Mile, Robocop, Rad
Anaconda, Four Weddings And A Funeral
Encino Man, Rid of Me
A Touch Of Evil
The Descendents, Young Frankenstein, The Tao of Steve
Bananas, History of The World Part 1

IM--DB, the web site to see
Just look everywhere
For flicks on DVD
Five days under lock and key
I looked up some movies made for you and me
I went three days without the bathroom
And I took no phone calls
And I didn’t eat, too
Now today, just wait briefly,
I’ll read you some actors I found on IMDB

Pinky Lee, Chynna Phillips, Slim Pickens
And Herbert Lom, Dick Van Dyke, Robyn Givens
Francis X. Bushman, Jackie Gleason
And Jackie Mason
And also genres by the dozen
Like Horror, Sports and Romantic
Drama and Slapstick
And Documentaries, and Sci-fi

They list a lotta those top grade films
And some blah to bad films
Films like El Cid, Gilda and Goldeneye,
Lola, The Jet Set, The Breakfast Club
And Be Kind Rewind, The Limey, CHUD
Dumbo, 9-Iron, Castaway, Semi-Tough, The Lion King
Camelot and Dune and Shoot The Moon
We Bought A Zoo, The White Balloon, Man In The Moon, Babe
She Hate Me, Link, The Sure Thing

The Girl Can’t Help It, and Midnight Run, Andy Warhol’s Bad,
And Die Hard, Skidoo, and The World’s Greatest Dad,
Horton Hears A Who, Gaslight, and General,
Blue Thunder, Aquamarine,
And The Big Chill,
Dennis The Menace, and The Bear, Drumline, Marnie, Breathe,
Matewan, A History of Violence, Network

IM--DB lists all the movies
Got lots of charms, and besides
It is still free
Now, say, have I impressed you
By doing this crazy thing that I did do?
Today, I live a bit in gloom
I realize I should be ashamed
But what could I do?
Honestly, serendipity
That Barenaked Ladies song should be “IMDB”

It took only two days to write this par-od-y
It took only two days to write this par-od-y
Still it seemed to come out very ran-dom-ly.

I'm impressed. I could read this perfectly and the pacing seems to be DEAD ON! I mean this was fantastic. My only real qualm with this parody is that you turned a non-list song into a list parody (but I'm not Below Average Dave so I don't really mind list parodies that much and you matched what they said in the song with movies pretty closely which is cool) that fact that you also included genres and actors is also pretty rad.

Again, totally agree with Matty. Almost perfect rhyming with the OS and a lot of great movies thrown in there as well. Excellent work!

(Artistry) Aggy you have really outdone yourself on this one! I'm a huge movie buff and IMDB is my go-to site for all my movie info needs so I was really digging this. You crammed so many references in here it's insane and the rhyming and pacing were fantastic! It may be a little lacking in the humor department, but still so EPIC!

(Artistry) I personally enjoyed how you didn't group the films by genre, that way despite this being a list parody, a lot of humour could still be derived from mentioning very disparate movies in the same sentence, like 8-Mile, Robocop and Rad. Great work on a pain-in-the-hole song, 555!

Quite a list you got there, could make one hell of an archive.

See Above: Still a fun read that you knocked out of the park.
