Say The Things - Blogging Parody of Seven Things by Miley Cyrus

Say The Things

by Greg on June 6, 2010

This song parody has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here!

I wrote these lyrics to the tune of “Seven Things” after promising the daughter of some friends of ours back in Texas that I’d write a parody to a Miley Cyrus song. I had originally planned to sing it myself but it didn’t take me long to realize that this would have been a complete disaster.

I decided to hire a fantastic vocalist out of Canada (Rachel Ferguson) and she absolutely nailed it. It was soooo cool to hear her bring my lyrics to life. She did an amazing job and she’ll be back on future parodies.

I tweeted, begged, and asked my bloggy buddies if they’d like to participate in the music video and what you’re about to see is the collaborative work of all those bloggers.

I want to thank everyone who sent video clips (you are all fawned over underneath the video) and I hope you’ll be up for an encore.

With that, I bring you “Say the Things”, which is my commentary on the importance of commentary. I figure, if I’m going to obsess over comments, why not at least have some fun with it, right?

Oh, and if you don’t comment after watching this? Then we need to talk. πŸ˜‰

UPDATED WITH MP3! I’ve had some requests for the MP3 version of the song and I’m flattered to know that it’ll be on some iPods. πŸ˜‰ Click here to download the MP3 Version.

Want the Lyrics?

We probably shouldn’t post this,
But it’s time that we declared,

Even though we love to read comments,
Few words are ever shared.

If it’s great and you don’t say it,
It’s not possible for us to know you cared.

Some feel their blog is, done in vain
But this is something you can change

If you just shared down here,

And say the things we want out of you!

And say the things we want out of you, oh you!

“You’re great!” “You’re blessed!” “Your blog’s the best!”
“I’m in love!” “So impressed!”

“You make me laugh!” “You make me cry!”
“You always share great things to buy!”

“Your words, they’re gold!”
“When they crafted you, they broke the mold.”

“I’ll Tweet it to everyone I know.”

“And to prove to you how much I love what you do,
Here’s a comment for you.”

It’s awkward when it’s silent,
After all we had to write,

By adding just a few words,
You can help us sleep at night.

Take a minute, just to write it.
Please express it, if you liked it.
Let’s be clear

It keeps us coming back
When you show us love down here

And say the things we want out of you!

“You’re great!” “You’re blessed!” “Your blog’s the best!”
“I’m in love!” “So impressed!”

“You make me laugh!” “You make me cry!”
“You always share great things to buy!”

“Your words, they’re gold!”
“When they crafted you, they broke the mold.”

“I’ll Tweet it to everyone I know.”

“And to prove to you how much I love what you do,
Here’s a comment for you.”

We don’t need validation,
On every post we write,

But comments are a great way to tell us that you like…

All the things we’re sharing with you!

Our lives, our news, product reviews,
How to win a Disney Cruise.

Some funny jokes, some tugged heartstrings
And how to save money on lots of things.

The food we cook,
A wonderful book, our brand new look.

We’d love to see your comments down below.

And there’s one thing we’ll all say when you do.

And that is “Thank You”. Thank you.

That video embodies everything I feel when I see "0 Comments" after a long post! I have a blog. A tiny blog, about the things I love, you see. And I have only gotten 2 comments. EVER. One of them was The Bloggess, because she's so awesome it hurts, and one of them was another crafty blogger.

My family members sometimes say to me on the phone, "Oh I read your blog last night, it was so funny!" And for the hundredth time I say, "You should comment!" They reply, "No, that's too much work. I can just call you." Facepalm.

You know you suck when your own relatives won't even take the time to comment on your blog.

But this blog? Yeah baby! πŸ™‚

Dave June 8, 2010 at 2:32 am

Nicely done. I never thought about how Blog writers might actually LIKE to get comments. Now I understand. Not getting comments on a blog you spent a lot of effort on and you think is great must be kind of like peeing in your pants when you are wearing black trousers. You get a warm feeling, but nobody else notices. Maybe. Or maybe not. I'll comment more often.

By the way, I've never peed in my pants when wearing dark trousers, so that whole part was just conjecture.

The heat that must of of been rising from your dome must of been crazy, or is it spinning in cyber-space as I type?

This was fantastic. I’ve always been shy about my own writing, and very shy about commenting…but when I hesitate to comment, I’m reminded of why I’ve given up blogging every time I’ve attempted it — because without comments, it felt like no one was reading it.

I found this going back through The Bloggess’ site, and I will definitely tweet this and share it on my Facebook. And this blog was just added to my bookmarks under my Favorite Blogs tab – I want to come back and read more!
