Here's my little rip on power/fantasy metal. It's called, "I Love Monkeys":

I LOVE MONKEYS!!!!
WELL….

They have prehensile tails
And prehensile feet.
I hope that someday soon a Monkey and I will meet!
Yeah…

They eat their bananas
And they swing from their trees
Even so they still find time to pick each other’s fleas!
Yeah…

A MONKEY!
WAS A HERO!
AND HE FOUGHT…WITH THE HEART…OF AN APE!!!

AND A MONKEY!!!
DOWN AT ZERO!!!!
IS A SIMEAN FORCE TAKING SHAPE!!!

HE RODE!!! ON THE WINGS!!! OF A DEMON!!!!
YES HIS RIDE!!! WAS THE BACK!!! OF A BAT!

AND THE MONKEY!!! HE HAS TOLD US…THE MONKEY IS ALL THAT!!!

YES THE MONKEY IS ALL THAT!!!

He had golden bananas
And never claimed submission
We all bowed before his orangutan disposition!!!!
Yes…

I knew this monkey
when his journey begun
Everyone said that he couldn’t be THE ONE!
No…

BUT THE MONKEY!!!!
HE WAS VALIANT!!!
AND HE WALKED…DOWN THE PATH…OF THE APE!!!!

AND A MONKEY!!!
FULL OF TALENT!!!
IS A MONKEY WHO IS WEARING A CAPE!!!
A MONKEY WEARING A CAPE!!!

It's a work in progress, I hope to finish by sometime next week. We're gonna put about 15 obnoxious drum, guitar, and bass solos in there, so it should be pretty funny musically (if not lyrically).

im going to be truthfull about this and this isnt meant to be takin offensive...in my humble opinion if the guitar riffs and other instrument riffs are good enough to cancel out the not so great lyrics then good for it dude
im aware that you might be doin the song for sh!ts and gigles..lol

No, see, that's the beauty of it. The riffs WON'T be good enough to cancel out the lyrics. It's meant to be terrible, and I think it may be just about at the level of crap that I want it. Thanks dude!

Funny songs are cool. Its all good for a funny song i'll admit, but its no Blink 182's "i Wanna **** A Dog In The Ass"

I went through a phase of 'sh*ts and giggles' songs(not that its catagory is a phase).
listen to 'Dying Fetus's 'kill your mother and rape your dog'.Well thats death metal,but still funny.

If your sound is what I'm thinking its going to be,It should be very 'obnoxious'.Full of aimless solo's 'wacky' chord proggressions(if at all) and a 20+ year old male voice that hasn't cracked yet...well mabey not all that,but definitley obnoxious.
Try once,fail twice...

Pretty good with the rhyming scheme. Pretty smart. Sounds wonderful. Can't wait to hear it. By the way, don't forget to add a monkey suit ala bloodhound gang lol.
"Lets see… well I play the guitar and when I'm not playing the guitar, I think about playing the guitar. My other favorite instrument, is the guitar and if I aspired to play any other instrument, it would be the guitar...

I can’t sing so I sing through my guitar. So when the sound guy says: “Your guitar is too loud!” I think: "Why does he never say that to the vocalist?"

haha, exactly. We're just gonna do a generic speed metal chord progression though. Something Iron Maiden-like. The vocals, though, are sung like the illegitimate son of Ozzy and the guy from Rush.

Me too, I love me some satire. Ever read P.J. O'Rourke's "All the Trouble in the World?" If you like satirical writing, this guy is the funniest, most insightful writer in the business.

Do you not like power metal, or is this just for laughs ?

Sounds like you got a hit on your hands Jolly. And please...try to ignore my orangutang disposition.
Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.
