lyrics

I. PRIDE
Spent all day on your video
An expression of the feelings that you want to show
Can't believe that it looks so good
Hoping your viewers will appreciate it like they should

The upload failed, processing is to blame
Just try Vimeo, no it's not the same
Did it show up in your subscription box?
It doesn't play 'less I use Firefox, oh...

You can be a good YouTuber, just don't give up
oh no no no
Your videos they are so super, YouTube messed up
oh ya ya ya

II. DOUBT/DENIAL
Now it's online, but the views have stalled
Maybe the title's wrong, what should the video have been called?
Tried spamming Facebook, Twitter, T****r too
And now you're tempted to think that the problem is you...

Shot out of focus, the white balance is off
(What does this 'auto' button do?)
Over-exposed, did you check your f-stop
Please just put down that Canon SLR
(And pick up the manual)
Baby don't you know that you're a star, oh

You can be a good YouTuber, just take some time
oh no no no
Your videos they are super, the mistakes are fine
oh ya ya ya

Oh don't you know you're beautiful
No matter what they say
Don't ever let them take that away

Aspect ratios, proper lighting, title safe
What are we fighting?
Just use a picture of some chick's gigantic boobs as your video thumbnail

III. ACCEPTANCE
You can be a good YouTuber, just don't even try
(That font looks good - is it the default?)
Your videos they could be better
But why?
(That effect template looks great just the way it is)

You can be a good YouTuber, just don't give up
oh no no no
Your videos they are so super, YouTube's messed up
oh ya ya ya

Don't you ever be afraid to broadcast yourself, to share your feelings, or to bite the hand that feeds you.
And if you're lucky, you'll be celebrated and rewarded for making the same video over and over and over again.
