    Title of a random forum post.

    Reccomendation to read a link: http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=2081
    Expression of laughter.
    Reccomendation to watch the video:

    Conjecture. Outrageous conjecture.
    Expression of fear of hatred by authors of song lyrics worldwide.


    Seriously though, this sounds better than half the "real" songs out there, although the "lyrics" are all like that.

    I for one thought the song was very funny!
    I don't like that type of formulaic music myself!

    Yes, but what really awed me was how natural-sounding the singers made even these intentionally bland lines. That was the real art that made the whole parody work. If you just recite them, they're not funny at all. (except "Oh, yeah, request it!" at the end ) LL guys made the similar observation in regards to that "Statement. Statement. Statement." sketch, but it's even harder with music.
