The Lyrics

Here's a song about how do you read a book.
Reading 'Moby Dick'
I got a couple hundred books
Man I hope he rounds it up
Yeah this one time he rounded up

Where'd my bookstores go?
I'm wearing my golden ribbon
But I can't even read it up
So how'm I s'posed to give a note?

Mama said don't you
Touch that book
Even though it feels good
Don't always have to read notes

Our sweet parents love us 'cause they don't see
The bags round our eyes and all the chapters on our thighs
No one knows you're hurting
'Til you start to cry

But if we read softly, softly then we'll
Keep the pages alive and watch it reading overnight
Wanna thank you teachers for being so blind

Cash stuffed in my watching books
I'm overflowing watch me read
Mosquito mass hysteria
I'm serving up malaria

Big whales sat upon my sea
I'm feeding seagulls feeding shjarks
I'll feed your fucking islander
The Great Whale of your area

Papa said you don't
Want that whale
Even though it's on a plate
Better start reading straight
Mate

Our sweet readers love us 'cause they don't see
The pages round our eyes and all the island on our thighs
No one knows you're hurting
'Til you start to cry

I've been looking my problems baby
'Cause I'm high off my goddamn boat
This junk don't come for free
They're telling me to read the book
Yeah but these lines have got a hold on me

Mama said don't you
Touch that junk
Even though it feels good
Don't always have to touch whales

Our sweet parents love us 'cause they don't see
The whales round our eyes and all the pages on our thighs
No one knows you're hurting
'Til you start to cry

I've been fucking my life up baby
And I'm dying from the sea hawk
This sea don't come for free
They're telling me to read the book
Yeah but these lines have got a hold on me
We'll this is a very important song about how do you read one of the most classic books of all time.

The lyrics are way too close to the original, I'm afraid. It seems you changed a couple words here and there. I'm not sure it's enough to qualify as a parody.
