For your enjoyment...
I'll try to get MP3s uploaded tonight when I get home.



Rockin’ the WOWAYs

Don’t have to tell y’all what it’s like
Playing Weird Al day and night
I need a place that I can click
When I wanna talk Yankovic, online

I logged in as TMB
I fit right in, to some degree
Became your award show MC
And so I wrote this parody

I’m rockin the WOWAYs
Just like Dave and WHiZZi did
I’m rockin the WOWAYs
Except that they are both admins
I’m rockin the WOWAYs
This forum I don’t understand
A hundred losers on computers thinking they’re Al’s biggest fan

A high post count is my goal
So I vote in a survivor poll
Start a flame war with a troll
Get myself on mod patrol
I might get into a fight
If scottidog’s online tonight…

I’m rockin the WOWAYs
Just like Mashed Potato did
I’m rockin the WOWAYs
Except that she’s Canadian
I’m rockin the WOWAYs
And I try not to provoke
A hundred losers on computers, none of whom can take a joke

And I hate debates
In every single topic
About things so microscopic
About things like whether this post
Belongs here or there
Does it really matter where?
Or how you hate hate hate this Al song
But it’s a great great great new Al song, I swear
We never can agree here
Yeah we’ll never agree here
We can never agree here
Maybe that could be fixed
When they switch to 4.0….

I don’t know what it’s like
Getting out and having a life
I don’t know what it’s like
Going out and riding a bike
I don’t know what it’s like
Getting fresh air and taking a hike
I don't know what it's like
Engaging in sin or vice

It makes me real pissed off, it makes me wanna get
It makes me real pissed off, it makes me wanna get
It makes me real pissed off, it makes me wanna get
BANNED!!

Just like Stephen Staver did
I’m rockin the WOWAYs
When he threw that hissy fit
I’m rockin the WOWAYs
But what am I complaining for?
This is the best Weird Al forum
And I’ve been to three or four… WOWAYs…
Yeah, I’m rockin the WOWAYs.
Yeah yeah I’m rockin the WOWAYs.
Yeah yeah.

You better watch out because you’re gonna get banned.
You better watch out because you’re gonna get banned.
You better watch out because you’re gonna get banned.
You better watch out because you’re gonna get banned.




With or Without Bruce

From the warming of the globe
To the best South Park episode
I debate… with you.
Didn’t think you’d find it rude
But my joke you misconstrued
I debate… without you.
With or without Bruce
With or without Bruce

Can you blame me for getting sick
Of that same old male model shtick
We’ve mistaken for you
With or without Bruce
With or without Bruce, aha
I can’t post
With or without Bruce

And you argue every day
And you type the day away
And you type
And you post
And you argue every day

But now you’re gone
And all this time you’ve left me with
No one to fight or
Call me arrogant

And you’re gone another day
And my life’s in disarray
And you’re gone
And you’re gone
And for you, you know I pray

With or without Bruce
With or without Bruce, aha
I can’t fight
With or without Bruce

[horrible noises, aka Jon trying to hold a note]

With or without Bruce
With or without Bruce, aha
I can’t live
With or without Bruce
With or without Bruce

...the duck!

TMBJon wrote:Awesome, thanks Jace. If anyone has any good ideas for new categories I'd love to hear them. Advice from previous hosts would also be appreciated.

Not to sound like a broken record (remember those?), but I think there should be be a Poet Laureate category, especially as other forms of fan artistry have a category in the WAs.

Thanks, Kaz; however, you're about four months late with that suggestion!

Technically, I met Ian (hubby, 11 yrs!) on the pre-WOWAY forum (alt.music.weird-al), would that count? I think it's kind of a pointless category, but I totally nominate Elvis and Dr.Steggy if the category becomes official.

And I absolutely feel that there must be a Poet Laureate category; poetry's as creative as drawings and photography and avatar-making, and they're honored in the WAs. :great:
