The Lyrics

The title may not seem to scan, but it's from a different part of the lyrics. I did that so that the point of the parody is a bit more obvious. It's meant to be about a girl who wants to be in the high society via being a model, not paranoia about her looks, hence why the title is 'A Model To Be' and not 'Don't Touch The Hair'. I hope that made some sort of sense.
I've spent lots on my hair
Lovely necklace 'round my neck
I'm posing with some flair
I have to leave
To wash my hair

I'd be a great advertiser
I'd model clothes and stuff
I'd wink, smile and say their slogan
They'll pay me lots of cash
That's what I want!
The rich life's for me, so watch the hair
ALways got to look my best
Those scouts are everywhere!
So won't you please
Don't touch the hair

When I get real rich, I'll go out every night
Spending my cash everywhere
On everything in sight
Model to be
So watch the hair

I'd be great for advertisin'
Hair and hygiene products
If I don't then I'll start cryin'
'Cause I'm after the cash
To spend on stuff!
Mod'ling's my dream, so watch the hair
Those girls get a huge pay check
I want one, so it's fair
For me to be
A model - there
That is my plea
Don't touch the hair

Mod'ling is my dream, so watch the hair
That parody took longer to write than I was expecting it to.

Oh, Lord Conq, run your strong hands thru my fluffy blonde hair any day; It is one of life's true pleasures, that a Cowboy takes the liberty to enjoy!

Like your clothes this parody wasn't too shabby... I kinda would have liked it if you added the background lyrics as well if you parodied the "Badda-Da-Da" I mean... But this wasn't half bad.

(Ages) Cute idea, but sorry, I found the pacing either off or hard to follow, and it wasn't that funny. 3-4-4. (Good video though.)

THe pacing was a bit rough, that or maybe it was just not quite as smooth as the original, that was kind of fun all around other than that, the vanity of models is not inherently a lifestyle, but you picked parts of it that are, so kudos for making it fit the theme and choosing someone who was in a way part of that same theme to parody. (Uh-huh Thank You Very Much)

AGES...I'm pretty sure you left a complete line out of the first stanza. =( So...I have to dock you for pacing...but this made me smile, Conq. As far as Dave's comment goes...I don't see how a parody about models is any less about a parody about actors. But that might just be me.

Funny idea...pacing was off. I liked the "don't touch the hair" riff. (IB has left the building)

It was decent. Not lol funny for me but not horrible

I enjoyed 'don't touch the hair' enough to forgive some spots in the pacing that were hard to follow. Its still a bit tough, but its fun and it fits.
