The Lyrics

I couldn't find a YouTube link for Michael Feinstein's version of this OS, Sorry! :-(. But, you can find the original lyrics here - - Enjoy the parody! :-)
What’s not real it will feel
Like it is made of pure imitation
It is not the real deal
It is all true imitation

We’ll start inside a heart
Beating in a chest with no sensation
Knows no truth just lies

If you want to view neverland
Simply look around you’ll know it
You won’t ever out, grow it
Want to change something, no need to do it

You don’t know one from two
If you don’t know of pure imitation
Knowing it, knows the truth
You will also know the proof

You will find in your mind
There’s two ways things can be separated
One is real one is fake
Which is an impersonation?

You can go, for the gold
Or instead you can go for the silver
Only the original will

If you want to live fairy tales
If you want your mind dispossessed
Wanna be manipulated?
Form of flattery, it’s the sincerest

It is true what to do
To prepare for all pure imitation
Just say that it’s not real
If that’s how you wish to feel
Give me some "real" "nice" comments and/or votes! ;-)

Great work as usual WCJ... don't know why someone has to 1-bomb you on Overall- that doesn't make much sense!!!
Rob Arndt - August 08, 2011 - Report this comment
BTW, 555!!! :-D

At the bottom in the 5 column, it reads 3 3 2 - but should read 3 3 3 cause I put in my own vote to raise the overall from a 1.0 to a 3.0, so I am not sure about this, but I think one of you forgot to vote. :-(
WCJ - August 08, 2011 - Report this comment
Actually it should read 4 4 2, but whatever, someone's vote obviously did not for some reason get counted, or they forgot to do it. :-(

It's OK you both voted, for some reason, the vote that I put in did not count. Sorry! OMR and Rob :-( But thanks for commenting and voting! :-)
Rob Arndt - August 08, 2011 - Report this comment
No WCJ, there are only three voters- 2 voted 555 and ONE PERSON voted 551. If you and I voted 555, then that only leaves one other person who probably hit the wrong last mark. It is impossible to leave a partial rating.

Then I would say that the answer lies with me then, I must have not voted, and thought that I did, my memory is not very good at all, plus, I know that you nor OMR, would give me a 551. ;-)

Nevermind Rob, I got and read your emails, as you said, OMR might have or did hit the wrong button while voting, thanks for all your help! :-)

NP WCJ... there are now four 555 votes and one 551= 21 Overall divided by 5= 4.2
