Parodies

If you have a great song parody, put it here!

"Stalker" ("Push" Parody)

WRITTEN BY MADI!


I said they should know that they've always been good enough.

Their instruments are not rusty,

I hope their heads are not cavin' in.

Cuz I'm gonna go,

And I'm gonna show my love.

With my hands, I hug them,

As I'm pulled away by security.

Makes me a little bit angry, well.

This ain't over,

No, not yet.

Not while I am still around.

They [security] say I owe them,

That might change.

And it just might feel good!


(Chorus)

I will not push them around!

No, I won't!

No, I won't!

I will not push them down!

No, I won't!

No, I won't!

They won't be taken for granted.

I won't be taken for granted,

I won't.


Security said they don't know why I ever would lie to them.

I'm a little untrusting when I'm stalkin' my favorite band.

And I don't know why I couldn't just stay,

With them,

They couldn't stand to be near me,

When I said that I'm in love with them.

I got a little bit dirty, well.

Please, just stand there.

Don't run away from me.

You've been cheated,

You've been wronged, and you,

You don't know me.

I won't change.

I would do anything for you!


(Chorus)


And I won't bowl you over.

Just wait a minute and I won't fall apart,

I won't get so crazy,

Crazy.

Don't rush me, security!

Don't rush me, security!


(Chorus)
