The Lyrics

I've written way too many parodies involving sucking at video games, so here's one about being good at video games...with a tweest! Enjoy!
I'll be winnin'
Ev'ry sittin'
Get used to it

I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And then I'm gonna shoot you down
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And then I'm gonna go to town
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
All-time record list, won't go down
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And soon your brains will meet the ground

Gotten good at this game
You noobs, I'll blow away
You'll hear a pistol click
Or see the grenade stick
All you can say is "shit"
Before you're blown to bits
Laugh my head off while you wait out the respawn time
Then I'll head off to shoot your teammates all in a line
I love to toy with dumb boys, it's my joy

I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And then I'm gonna shoot you down
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
Not long before the shotgun's found
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
You dared to bring my kill-streak down
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
Make you suffer the same fate now

You'll scream and call me "gay"
Can't hear you anyway
Cause you, I'm silencing
Don't need to hear your shit
Heard enough screamin' kids
Can just imagine it
Turned the mic off, heard enough insults the first time
And though it's off, I can still recall your bitter whines
Quite easily, such bad language

I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And then I'm gonna shoot you down
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And I'll relish that shotgun's sound
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
And then I'm gonna hunt you down
I get shot down
But I'll respawn again
I sound cocky? I've earned that crown

I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again
And then I'm gonna shoot you down (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again
I can picture your sweaty frown (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again
Though that won't happen often now (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again
I just know I'm not perfect now (ooh-ooh-ooh)

I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (cause I'm good at this game)
And then I'm gonna shoot you down (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (and you're all pretty lame)
You're never gonna live this down (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (wreck shit when in the fray)
And why? I'm gonna tell you now (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (secret I'll now display)
I'm actually a girl, you clown (ooh-ooh-ooh)

I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (I'm quite good at this game)
And then I'm gonna shoot you down (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (you're incredibly lame)
You say that fact can't be true now (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (callin' bullshit today)
You still stuck in the eighties? Wow (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (no craps to give, okay)
Who cares, still gonna own you now (ooh-ooh-ooh)

I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (really good at this game)
And then I'm gonna shoot you down (I'll be grinnin')
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (you're all totally lame)
"You should be in the kitchen now" (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I get shot down (won't be whingin')
But I'll respawn again (such wit, should be ashamed)
That's why, on forums, I'm not 'round (I'll be grinnin')

I was expecting this song to be a lot harder to parody for some reason. Repetition intimidation, I guess.
