Kanrei's Newest Parody

This is an old song, but I heard it today at lunch and these are the lyrics I worked out for it. It is basically because the first time I heard each new song from this band, I thought it was a different band. They became nothing but a cover band to me.
Think about it-
Sex Type Thing- Alice in Chains
Plush- Pearl Jam
Creep- Alice in Chains
Wicked Garden- Soundgarden

Original- Creep by Stone Temple Pilots
For the tune:


The new words

We thought we could write a song
Well, it turns out we were wrong
So we took a look around
Found we dug Seattle’s sound
So like a cover band
We set out to be a new Pearl Jam
I need another line
To match the original song's time

We sound like a cover band
Unoriginal
We sound like a cover band
Cause we had to steal
We sound like a cover band
Unoriginal
We had to steal

We’re half the band we could have been
Oh yeah we’re stealing the style of those who have the fame
We’re half the band we could have been
Half the band we could have been

So here is the thing
I think I’m Eddie Vedder when I sing
And trying to capture fame
I joined Guns N Roses, but changed the name
And now it seems I found
The fame that had never come around
Almost a success
They make excuses for how I dress

We’re still just a cover band
Unoriginal
We’re still just a cover band
Guess we like to steal
We’re still just a cover band
Unoriginal
We like to steal

We’re half the band we could have been
But with twice the fans that we honestly deserve
We’re half the band we could have been
To be Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam is what we learned
Half the band we could have been
Half the band we could have been
Half the band

Oooh, hit me where it hurts! I like STP, and I like that they experiment with different sounds. "4" is my favorite cleaning-house CD--with Jane's Addiction's "Ritual de lo Habitual" a close second. And you can't steal that from me!!!

Hey, how did I miss a Kan parody for so long? Excellent!! We'll drive Weird Al out of business!
