about

This is my parody of "Rockin' Robin" as recorded by Bobby Day in 1958 about Twitter. The instrumental is by Bob 'Project Sisyphus' Emmet. The bridge features tweets from a variety of funny music artists: carriedahlby, thegreatlukeski, budsharpe, Alchav, filkertom, insaneianb, carlaulbrich, chriswaffle, devospice, dark_NES, MaxDeGroot, seamonkeymusic, kobi_lacroix, Positude, ToasterBoy, and introducing from UK funny music group Flat 29, Dan flat29, and RichJamesGreen! I did my best to invite all Twitter-using funny musicians that weren't too far out of my league, but if I missed you, please forgive me!

Twitter twitter tweet, twitter twitter tweet
Twitter twitter tweet, twitter twitter tweet
Twitter twitter tweet, twitter twitter tweet
Tweet tweet, re-tweet

I type with my thumbs now, all the day long
Gems that are One hundred forty Characters long
I put 'em up on Twitter for all the world to see
No matter what I'm up to, it deserves a tweet

Twitter tweetin' (tweet tweet tweet)
Twitter tweetin' (tweet, re-tweet)
Oh, twitter followers are really gonna tweet tonight (tweet, re-tweet)

It's blatant self-promotion for all celebrities
Britney and Kanye lead the "Twitterati"
Ashton and Demi, Justin Bieber too
Flapping them thumbs sayin' what they're up to

Twitter tweetin' (tweet tweet tweet)
Twitter tweetin' (tweet, re-tweet)
C'mon, demented tweeters and help me out on this bridge! (tweet, re-tweet)

(All real tweets!)

@carriedahlby Just passed a store called "Novelties & Things" which would've been more accurately named "Bongs & More Bongs".

@thegreatlukeski Next sci-fi con I go to, I'll dress up as a hobbit who's a classic Star Trek engineer AND basketball star! My name badge will read "Scotty Pippin".

@budsharpe Why is "chores" only one letter removed from "whores"? Buyer beware: you may not be doing that which you intended.

@Alchav I'm not sure why there are dryer sheets in the car... but they sure are suddenly convenient.

@filkertom You'd think all the "You have won millions in a lottery" spam would make it more bearable to receive all the "You have a small penis" spam.

@insaneianb Emo cop says: "Stop, or I'll shoot myself!"

@carlaulbrich Has anyone else noticed that you can sing "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" to the tune of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"? Just me?

@chriswaffle I just peed in a waterfall at the Madonna Inn!

@devospice Turns out super glue bonds instantly to skin, but doesn't bond to anything you actually want it to bond to.

@dark_NES I bet I could get a job at the circus as the man who turns beer into farts! 'Sup ladies?

@MaxDeGroot How can I tell Pandora that Holst's "Planets" is NOT similar to "The Stars and Stripes Forever"? I've run out of thumbs downs!

@seamonkeymusic CAW! CAW! Get it? I tweeted... Caw caw... Because it's like a bird... Aw, nevermind.

@kobi_lacroix Potato chips are known better by that name than by their alternate name: paper cut locators. #OW

@Positude Recording a tweet for @carriedahlby. Not sure which tweet. What about this one? Does this one work?

@ToasterBoy Was in a store and a mom was calling for her son, who wandered off. "Marco!" I was SO tempted.

@flat29 These days I'm married to my job... but I'm having a secret affair with my spare time!

@RichJamesGreen If you stand equi-distant from a Kylie Monogue concert and a Jason Donovan concert, it sounds like "Especially For You".

Reply at @RichJamesGreen Hey, what did you have for supper?

@RichJamesGreen Cheese sandwich!

Micro-blogging has the civ'lization all shook
Socialize or write the world's shortest book
Win an iPad or make a spammee sale
But only System Admins beat the Fail Whale!

The cute Twitter bluebird helps me feel good
Tweetin' more TMI than anyone should
If you say I'm shallow I'll give you a swat
Heaven forbid if you call me a TWIT!

Twitter tweetin' (S...M....S)
Twitter tweetin' (or ... Web based)
Oh, my awesome twitter gonna kick Facebook's ASS tonight!
Tweet, tweet, re-tweet
Twitter twitter tweet, twitter twitter tweet
Twitter twitter tweet, twitter twitter tweet
Twitter twitter tweet, twitter twitter tweet
Tweet tweet, re-tweet
