It’s Not So Nice When Someone Kills Your Song

TTTO Brooke Lunderville’s “It’s Just So Nice When Someone Knows Your Name”

I’d like like to be a singer on the radio or TV
It’s kinda nice to get some well deserved publicity
I could get arrested for doing something bad
Like hitting some young idiot who really got me mad

It’s not so nice when someone kills your song
When they molest the tunes you wrote
This kind of stuff, it gets my goat
See, it’s not nice when someone kills your song

I’d like to write a song that filker friends will hum along
And they would all enjoy it so they’ll want to write a new song
We filkers like a challenge, we want to feel so deep
This parody’s so obvious, I wrote it in my sleep

It’s not so nice when someone kills your song
When people twist the words around
’till the original can’t be found
See, it’s not nice when someone kills your song

I’d like for Weird Al Yankovich a parody to write
So I can hear the parody on radio in the night
And frat boys whose fine motor skills have been dissolved by beer
Would find it quite the clever bit, when it gets in their ear

It’s not so nice when someone kills your song
And people sing the parodies
To nice and bouncy melodies
See, it’s not nice when someone kills your song

I’d like for big name filkers to make hash out of my stuff
It would be such a comfort, for such fame, it is enough
For some days you’ve got talent, and some days your stuff sucks so
But you can never go wrong with such a parody deluxe-o

It’s just so nice when someone kills your song
And you’ve got everlasting fame
“Kanef got me” you can proclaim
I mean, it’s nice when someone kills your song
