The Lyrics

Parody #21 of the 25 Parodies of Christmas Challenge. Dedicated to those of us who have witnessed the shenanigans behind drunken karaoke (and/or have engaged in it themselves).
God quiet the drunken singers
Who grace themselves on stage,
Who butcher classics and try to
Break out “Y.M.C.A.”
They grind upon the stripper pole
While they belt out half-notes

What in the world makes them think they are good?
Think they are good?
What in the world makes them think that they are good?

God quiet the drunken singers
Get them all some coffee
And pain relievers to take to
Prevent their hangovers
One butchered “Don’t Stop Believin,’”
Another butchered “Fame”

What in the world makes them think they are good?
Think they are good?
What in the world makes them think that they are good?

God quiet the drunken singers
With towers of saltines
The yeast in them absorbs the booze,
The texture shuts them up
Especially if they try whistling
“Wind of Change” or “Patience”

What in the world makes them think they are good?
Think they are good?
What in the world makes them think that they are good?

Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55" turned "Give you 5-55"!!! Been there and NOT done that (can't sing to save my life)!!! Rebekah, have you ever had a BF that _thought_ he could sing? I've had a few GFs that thought so and made my cats and dogs leave the room!

Sweet! I dated some guys I knew couldn't sing, though there were a couple who thought they could. (They didn't sound too good.) However, I've dated a couple guys who sang beautifully. (My on-again, off-again ex was one of the best singers I've heard.)
