(click either link for the music, but read the....)
Lyrics to actually use:

Na na na na na na na,
 Na na na na na na.
One Two Three Four Five Six then,

 Seven Eight Nine and Ten.

Twitter says "gained a follow",
I don't know, guess that's great.
(I'm) Just gonna post on my blog,
See if it sparks debate.


I got a brand new lesson plan or
Maybe a story to share.
I want to start you thinking,
I want us more aware.
Un deux trois quatre cinq six; I want us more aware.
Eins zwei drei vier fünf sechs; yeah, we should be more aware.


[Chorus:]
So, now what?
Am I a rock star?
Maybe my moves rock,
But it's so ad hoc!


I guess that,
If it's in good fun,
Just know that no one,
Can dictate how to be right!


I'm contrite, might rewrite,
'Cause you're no fool.
So, now what?
What is a rock star?
You say my moves rock,
But I don't think that you're right.




(Uh check my feed, yeah)
That person who's so famous,
Can garner two dozen retweets. (wow)
May think they have it easy,
But that view's incomplete.


What if the throng gets them pigeonholed,
Or makes us scared to share.
Is famous not a label?
We could be more aware.
Ichi ni san shi go; So, I want us more aware.
Uno dos tres cuatro; yeah, we've all became more aware!


[Chorus:]
So, now what?
Am I a rock star?
Maybe my moves rock,
But it's so ad hoc!


I guess that,
If it's in good fun,
Just know that no one,
Can dictate how to be right!


I'm contrite, might rewrite,
And you're no fool.
So, now what?
What is a rock star?
You say my moves rock,
But I don't think that you're right.


You could be here,
I could be there,
Life is part luck,
Not always fair.


I'll give you this,
That through it all,
We'll find our way,
Won't let you fall!


[Chorus:]
So, now what?
Are you a rock star?
Maybe your moves rock,
But it's so ad hoc!


Well, guess what,
It's all in good fun,
We know that no one, (no one!)
Can dictate when you are right!


Be contrite, or rewrite,
But you're no fool.
So, now what?
What is a rock star?
I think your moves rock,
Now don't you think that's alright?


Oh by, the by,
English, is just a choice.
You add your voice!
I want to tell every site!


You're alright, don't rewrite,
As you're not fools.
So, now what?
What is a rock star?
Everyone's moves rock,
But if I'm wrong, set me right!

  1. First, can I say that I'm envious of your parodies. I'm still trying to figure out a Lady Gaga bit, and that train is long gone.

    Second, Carrie really doesn't seem to like dealing with her author. :)

    1. The train is never gone on the internet. This stuff always seems to come back. Thanks though... admittedly, I wish I was better at actual creation rather than piggybacking. But my brain works better when there's materials already on hand.

      As to the clip art, reruns of prior clips was all I really had available - and she is annoyed that her story keeps getting shoved to the side. ^.^
