Best Parody

So for this assignment I’m doing “Music Parody“(Worth 3 points). I’m doing this parody on the song sha la la la la by Heavy Young Heathens. I’m going to first link the song then the original lyrics, then my edit and my thought process.

Original lyrics:

Unphased she’s motivated by her lack of charm
She keeps her social status in a tattoo on her arm
Takes up with visitors professors all by trade
Although she’s 21 she tells them all she’s 28Let’s talk about love, let’s talk about hate
Last time that we spoke it was a little much too late
Let’s talk about soul, let’s talk about fame
So much talk so little time she plays it like a game
Sha la la la laPlease Mr. Grieves bring my baby back to me
Well she’s crazy like a storm, with needles in her arms
Well I got nowhere to go, but I’m so darn far from home
Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alone
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la laHer car is empty and the milk has all run dry
She dresses for the weather after dinner’s when she dines
She hands out tokens while the patrons wait in line
Although she’s 22 she tells them all she’s 29Let’s talk about black, let’s talk about gold
Make us all believe again before you get too old
Let’s talk about red, let’s talk about blue
The only other color left’s the one I saved for you
Sha la la la laPlease Mr. Grieves bring my baby back to me
Well she’s crazy like a storm, with needles in her arms
Well I got nowhere to go, but I’m so darn far from home
Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alone
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
I can’t stand being no, why don’t you leave me aloneIt’s late October by the time that she awakes
And suddenly she’s laughing and decides to take the train
Although she’s 35 she tell us all she’s 28
Sha la la laPlease Mr. Grieves bring my baby back to me
Well she’s crazy like a storm, with needles in her arms
Well I got nowhere to go, but I’m so damn far from home
Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alonePlease Mr. Grieves bring my baby back to me
Well she’s crazy like a storm, with needles in her arms
Well I got nowhere to go, but I’m so damn far from home
Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alone
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la

My lyrics:

Unphased she’s motivated by her lack of charm
She keeps her social status in a tattoo on her arm
Takes up with visitors professors all by trade
Although she’s 21 she tells them all she’s 28Let’s talk about love, let’s talk about hate
Last time that we spoke it was a little much too late
Let’s talk about soul, let’s talk about fame
So much talk so little time she plays it like a game
Sha la la la laPlease Mr. Grieves bring my (Goldfish) back to me
Well she’s crazy like a storm, with needles in her arms
Well I got nowhere to go, but I’m so darn far from home
Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alone
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la laHer car is empty and the milk has all run dry
She dresses for the weather after dinner’s when she dines
She hands out tokens while the patrons wait in line
Although she’s 22 she tells them all she’s 29Let’s talk about black, let’s talk about gold
Make us all believe again before you get too old

Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alone
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
I can’t stand being no, why don’t you leave me aloneIt’s late October by the time that she awakes

Well she’s crazy like a storm, with needles in her arms
Well I got nowhere to go, but I’m so damn far from home
Well I, I can’t stand being no, I can’t stand being alone
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la
Hey hey hey hey
Sha la la la la

So I don’t think the edit is that import without the reason behind why I chose to change just that part. So I was trying to think of a good song to edit but I just am really bad at these audio assignments but then I thought of something perfect. So in DND (Dungeons and Dragons, yes I play it). There is a Beholder named Xanathar.

HE LOVES HIS GOLDFISH, so I thought it’d be great making the song about his loved goldfish instead of a loved woman. Since conically he LOVES his goldfish. It even has a name, Sylgar. I thought it was too cute to pass up. Let me know your thoughts below.

  1. Ok Cameron!! I can tell you are really creative, this looks awesome and I considered doing this assignment myself but was too intimidated. I know this is audio week, but I really like the image you incorporated in your post as well. Have more confidence in yourself, this is impressive!

  2. side note: I’m also just gonna throw in here, our class roster thing has this site listed as Cameron, but…your page says Kyle. Just so ya know! I keep getting mixed on whose page I’m on LOL

    1. I mean, I’m doing the same thing, so I’m not surprised someone else is changing else their presentation name as well.

  3. I love the story on why you decided to change some of the lyrics behind this song. Though, I’m a little disappointed that you didn’t change more of the lyrics. I thought you would make it more… dungeon and dragonsey. If that makes any sense. Right now, it still seems like the same song besides the shift of the word goldfish.
