Alternative lyrics wanted



Have you ever made up alternate lyrics to a popular song (think Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer)? Your pastime could finally pay off.

Xtreme is running a funny lyrics contest. We're looking for alternative lyrics to popular songs. It could be any song, but there is one rule: Keep it clean. If you're between the ages of 13 and 18, send us written lyrics or mail us a tape of you singing the lyrics. The most creative ones will be chosen and the author will receive a $50 prize. They'll also be showcased online at The Chronicle's Web site at augustachronicle.com.

We'll publish winners in the Feb. 25 issue of Xtreme.
