Subject: What do you guys think of my "Happy" parody?

Written By: Sita0 on 12/30/14 at 12:51 am

"Hatpy"


It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
My headgear grows in size every day
My hat's so large it almost reaches space
Colony up there, like I don't care by the way

{Uh}


Because I'm hatpy
Clap along if you feel like a your hat could be a roof
Because I'm hatpy
Clap along if you feel like wearing hats is needed (cause that's the truth)
Because I'm hatpy
Clap along if you know what hat-wearing is to you
Because I'm hatpy
Clap along if you feel like your hat is of greater size than you


Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, you can't break through this hat, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I'll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don't waste your time
Here's why



{Hey
Go
Uh}



Bring my crown
Ain't nothing
Bring my crown
Its altitude's high
Bring my crown
Ain't nothing
Bring my crown
I said (let me tell you now)
Bring my crown
Ain't nothing
Bring my crown
Its altitude's high
Bring my crown
Ain't nothing
Bring my crown
I said



{Hey
Go
Uh}




Some nice 2am parody, imho.

It's a reference to Pharrell's hat.

Needs some work... But it's a good idea. Try not to use so many words from the real song in the parody

Speaking as a person who has only listened to parodies for over 45 years and never written one (yet), the title of the song has to catch your attention straight away and a made up word "Hatpy" did not do that for me. My thinking is that the title could be "Hat Free" and the song centres on PH walking around the streets, without wearing a hat, and the people not recognising him.

Hm, interesting. Also, hatpy is hard to say.

To make it even better, avoid the repetition in the "bring my crown" bridge and incorporate some other rhymes--although Weird Al gambled successfully on the repetition of "Got no shame"  in his "Tacky" parody.
