Lady Madonna (The Kanrei Remake)

For the context, go here
For the lyrics- look beneath the Youtube clip
For the tune:


Sing along

Lady Madonna
Won’t you go away
Why do think anyone cares what you say?

I see you’re in the papers
I see you’re making news
Trying to pretend you are Ambassador for the Jews

Everyday you try to get the headlines
Trying desperately just to regain
The attention that you are sadly still are craving
But it comes across as just lame

Lady Madonna
Or is it Esther now
Either way you only worship the next golden cow


Are you feeling empty and slightly worthless
Have you not gotten enough fame
Do you wake up late at night fearing
They might forget your name

Lady Madonna
I think you need a clue
Wearing red strings doesn’t make you a Jew

Everyday you try to get the headlines
Trying desperately just to regain
The attention that you are sadly still are craving
But it comes across as just lame

Lady Madonna
Won’t you go away
Why do think anyone cares what you say?

Wow, Kan. How do you really feel?

Great lyrics. You seem to have a seed of genius in this regard. Can you sing and dance, too?

Having read the "for context go here" link, yep, I see what you're saying. I love parody songs, and that's a good one.:)

I am so happy you liked it. It makes it worth having the real song stuck in my head all day.

I still love the real song.

So do I Birdie, but any song can become an Earworm. After the 50th time hearing it in my head I wanted to scream and find something, anything, to replace it.

Nice! You know how I like parodies. That was an excellent one. Looks like I've got a contender!
