Another Mediocre Parody – I’d Wipe A Whole Raid

Posted January 27th, 2011 by Miss Mediocre

This song isn’t the usual kind of thing I listen to, but after I heard it I couldn’t get it out of my head, then I listened to it 100 times or so, and when singing it one time I made up the “I’d wipe a whole raid for ya” line as a joke, and this parody was born! I wish I had a stronger voice, or knew how to auto tune or something as I think I come up with funny lyrics for these, but hopefully you all like it regardless!

If you don’t recognize it, the original song is Grenade by Bruno Mars.

Here’s my parody! Grenade Parody – I’d Wipe A Whole Raid (For ya)

Here are the lyrics :

Need roll need roll, that’s just how you play,
Oh take take all the loot, but that is okay,
Should have known you were trouble from the first run,
Said you needed cloth shoulders,
But you’re a pally?

Made you all new gear but you traded it for cash, you traded it for cash, you did,
To add my real ID is all I ever asked,
Cause what you don’t understand is,

I’d wipe a whole raid for ya,
I’d delete my main for ya,
I’d jump in front of the tram for ya,
You know I’d do anything for ya,
Ooh Oh,
I would DE all my gear,
Give you all my gold for a year,
My toon would die for your baby, but you won’t do the same.

Oh no no no.

You think you’re so leet, you make me feel so dumb,
Tell my Imp I said “hai” when you get back to where you’re from,
Selfish player, that’s just what you are,
Join guilds without thanks then steal the loot from their banks,

Gave you more new gear but you traded it for cash, you traded it for cash you did,
To add my Real ID is all I ever asked,
Cause what you don’t understand is,

I’d wipe a whole raid for ya,
I’d delete my main for ya,
I’d jump in front of the tram for ya,
You know I’d do anything for ya,
Ooh Oh,
I would DE all my gear,
Give you all my gold for a year,
My toon would die for you baby, but you won’t do the same.

If my character was on fire, oh you would use it as a cooking flame,
You slash-loved me you’re a liar,
Cause you never, ever did baby,

But darling’ I’d still wipe a whole raid for ya,
I’d delete my main for ya,
I’d jump in front of the tram for ya,
You know I’d do anything for ya,
Ooh Oh,
I would DE all my gear,
Give you all my gold for a year,
My toon would die for your baby, but you won’t do the same.

No, you won’t do the same,
You wouldn’t do the same,
Ooh, you’d never do the same,
Oh no no no…

    I’m still ROFL’ing a bit right now.

    Simply wonderful. Your voice is fine btw….very creative lyrics. I haven’t heard the original song so it seemed to flow nicely.

    You have:

    If my character was on fire, oh you would use it as a cooking flame,
    You slash-loved me you’re a liar,
    Cause you never, ever did baby,

    How about:

    When my robes were aflame, you just cooked up “Salted Eye”,
    Then slash-loved me, but you’re a liar,
    Just used me for the skill up.

    Don’t know if that flows with the tune, but maybe it can be made to work?

    I need to figure out how to get this on my IPod.

    You have a beautiful voice – love your parodies and your blog.
    This one is funny and kinda sad, but just brilliant!

    Keep up the good work!

    Nice, very nice ! “Grenade” it’s one of the songs I listen nowdays …

  4. sloppysam

    Nice Job!! It takes guts to do something like this.

    Can we remix it? I really enjoyed it and you have a great voice!!

    Kammler: I like your lyrics better, hehe. The original lyrics are:

    If my body was on fire, oh you would watch me burn down in flames,
    You said you loved me, you’re a liar,
    Cause you never, ever ever did baby.

    So I just went with what was as close to that as possible! If I ever figure out how to do a better quality one, I’ll change it because I like that you included the “salted eye” and the “just used me for the skill up” line! :D

    Fieryangel : Thank you! :)

  7. Miss Mediocre

    Rawer : Ty! :) I really like “Grenade” too and listen to it a lot, though I now tend to sing a strange nonsense version of my lyrics and the originals, lol.

  8. Miss Mediocre

    sloppysam : Thanks :) That would be fun to hear a remixed version of it, lol. Let me know if you do it! :)

  9. sloppysam

    If you could post the vocal track I would have some great fun with a remix.

  10. Miss Mediocre

    sloppysam : I’ll have a look around on my computer for the vocal track! Hopefully I didn’t delete it once I put it all together :S lol

    You have a beautiful voice! No auto tune needed!

    I LOVE your parody! It had me LOLing. ;)

    I even made my WoW playing husband listen.

    Love the pally line at the beginning. What a ninja!

  12. Aph

    That is awsome…when I hear that song on the radio all I can think of is the WoW version.

  13. Miss Mediocre

    Rosennia : Thanks so much :D

  14. Miss Mediocre

    Aph : Hehe, thanks! I am the same way when I hear the original now too, lol.

  15. Payret

    omg it’s awesome! Great voice!! :)

  16. Miss Mediocre

    Payret : Thank You :)

    I agree everyone here don’t need to auto tune you’re voice it’s beautifully soft. If I had the original cut of the music and vocal track I would probably play with the volume levels bit but that’s all. But I’m not an auto mixer I just play with sound bites here and there for fun.

  18. Miss Mediocre

    Dejin : Thank you very much :) I intend to post the vocal track too so people can play with it, whenever I can find it, lol.
