The Lyrics

If a rapper can shamelessly promote himself (and most do), why not a parody writer? I am, a parodier?
Michael, Mike Pacholek!
King of the parodiers!

Born in a hospital in New Jersey
the weirdest State in the land of the free.
Lived in the suburbs where they chop down tree
and said, "Nixon sucks!" when he was only three!

Michael, Mike Pacholek!
King of the parodiers!

He found a bunch o' records in a collection
albums that gave his Mom and Dad a lot of fun
with Mickey Katz and "folksinger" Allan Sherman
and like Weird Al Yankovic, that's what he's done!

Michael, Mike Pacholek!
King of the parodiers!

He wrote lots o' parodies about baseball
but when Daddy Bush, he had the gall
to go to war, Mike got political...
and... wrote 'em all up, 'til Clinton's standing tall!

Michael, Mike Pacholek!
King of the parodiers!

He defended Clinton for an eight-year spell
writing how Republicans have awful smell
and how Newt Gingrich oughta be put in a cell
and still found time to tell the Mets to go to hell!

Michael, Mike Pacholek!
Serving his country well!

When the 2000 election was stole
Mike knew sticking it to Dubya was his goal
so me moved onto Amiright, this comedic Pole
and now he's in a parody writer's Super Bowl!

Michael, Mike Pacholek!
King of the parodiers!

His ego's biggest, he thinks he's the best!
Is any writer better? Well, surely you jest!
His head's swelled up bigger than Britney's chest!
And he'll fight until with Dubya, we will divest!

Michael, Mike Pacholek!
King of the parodiers!

King of the par...o...dieeeeeeeers!

Pacing seemed a bit rough to me. And I cut my teeth on this song as a young lad. Or lad-ess. The ego part was right on, though! ;-)

Spot, it appears that this human is attempting to incite the laughing response in other humans by promoting his egotism.

You do shameless self promotion, well, Michael. Merry, a teeny little Rod Stewart parody fragment, just for you: "Whether lad or lassie, we still think you're sexy..." :)

Thanks, Melhi! ;-)

Michael, you are the King of the Commenters, but only one of the Princes of Parody Writing. This was a very good parody, but I didn't understand the line about your ego - what ego??
Jess Cully - January 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Meriadoc : isn't 'lass' the feminine of 'lad' ?
Peter Andersson - June 23, 2005 - Report this comment
I'm willing to bet that this had more votes than a single 111 before the clean sweep last year, so I restored a 555.

Dammit! Why is there another triple one vote here?

Was thinking of using this tune again. Wanted to see who else had used it, and how. Isn't New Jersey the state where you are not allowed to pump your own gas? By the way, I come from a city with a large population of descendants of Polish immigrants? Pronunciations can change with time. Is it Pa-hole-ek or Pa-CHO-let (CH as in Church)? You have been around this site for a long time.
