a parody of "My Guy" by Mary Wells
Kidding Berry Gordy a bit acting like he can really write AND produce a Broadway show all by himself the very first time he's trying to do it, while calling out wishes to him and his team for great luck. Can't wait for this one, even if i joke about it!

Song Parody Fragments:

"My Guy"
Better Lyrics:
No matter what you say
He won't go away
He's Mai's guy
Nothing you could write
Could make me change my mind
'Bout Mai's guy
You can write all the fics you wanna
But leave him for you, Mai ain't gonna
You better clean up your act
and accept the fact
He's Mai's guy
Original Lyrics:
Nothing you could do
Could make me be untrue
To my guy
Nothing you could buy
Could make me tell a lie
To my guy
I gave my guy
My word of honor
To be faithful
And I'm gonna
You'd better be believing
I won't be deceiving
My guy
