"You should grow up"
« on: October 25, 2008, 12:37:00 am »
Poorly-written, repetitive parody of poorly-written, repetitive song: "When I grow up" by the Pussycat Dolls. All criticism, constructive or otherwise, is greatly appreciated. Please note that the experience of reading this will probably be marginally less horrible if you have an idea of how the original sounds.

--------------------------------------

I think youíre crazy,
And you should hear what I say,
Because Iíd rather that you listen now than learn the hard way.

I think youíre crazy,
And you should hear what I say,
Because Iíd rather that you listen now than learn the hard way.

Now Iíve got a suggestion:
Stop seeking so much damn attention.
The odds are millions to one against;
So get your head back in reality.

Now if youíre one of the best,
Then put your skills to the test;
And ignore cynics such as I.
But if you donít have the skills,
And if you never will,
Well then, hereís what I think you should try:

You should grow up!
Find a new path, make a new plan, work out what to do,
You should grow up!
Learn some new skills, do what you can, have some fun en route,
You should grow up!
You think youíll be a perfect dream, a big celebrity?
You should wake up!
Look and see, open your eyes Ďcause the truth will make you free!

Yeah, have fun with dreams of fame because you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
Yeah, have fun with dreams of fame because you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
Come on, donít you get it?

Youíll be up there one day? Oh really?
I think youíve watched too much MTV.
The current stars take pains to get it wrong,
Because they all know that false hope sells songs.

Now if youíre one of the best,
Then put your skills to the test;
And ignore cynics such as I.
But if you donít have the skills,
And if you never will,
Well then, hereís what I think you should try:

You should grow up!
Find a new path, make a new plan, work out what to do,
You should grow up!
Learn some new skills, do what you can, have some fun en route,
You should grow up!
You think youíll be a perfect dream, a big celebrity?
You should wake up!
Look and see, open your eyes Ďcause the truth will make you free!

I see you looking at me,
Like Iím cruel and bitter,
Like Iím so evil for trying to make you a quitter.
You can spite and hate me,
Go on and do what you must,
But for every star thereís dozens they left in the dust.

You should grow up!
Find a new path, make a new plan, work out what to do,
You should grow up!
Learn some new skills, do what you can, have some fun en route,
You should grow up!
You think youíll be a perfect dream, a big celebrity?
You should wake up!
Look and see, open your eyes Ďcause the truth will make you free!

Yeah, have fun with dreams of fame because you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
Yeah, have fun with dreams of fame because you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
Come on, donít you get it?

You should grow up!
Find a new path, make a new plan, work out what to do,
You should grow up!
Learn some new skills, do what you can, have some fun en route,
You should grow up!
You think youíll be a perfect dream, a big celebrity?
You should wake up!
Look and see, open your eyes Ďcause the truth will make you free!

Yeah, have fun with dreams of fame because you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
Yeah, have fun with dreams of fame because you just wonít get it,
No, you just wonít get it,
Come on, donít you get it?

Original lyrics are here: http://www.mp3lyrics.org/p/pussycat-dolls/when-i-grow-up/

It occurs that if someone with singing skillz recorded this version and played it to people expecting the original it could be a decent mindfuck.
-Everyone says I'm very gullible. Should I believe them?-

-If you have any idea what I'm attempting to communicate here, you're either wrong or a telepath.-

Wait, hang on, is this the right sub-forum for stuff like this? So confused . . .
