The Lyrics

This is a fan piece because recently I've been pretty much obsessed with "How I Met Your Mother" thus I had to do a parody about the show and more importantly about my favorite character: Barney Stinson. Sorry for those of you who don't know the show, Here's a link to find out some information:
I used to woo the girls
Told her lies and that’s all she heard
My life is boring an office drone
But she thinks that I’m a clone

The booze made them enticed
Strapped in gear from my submarine ride
Mission that I vowed to bring
Is to have flings in bed blonde and perky!

That brunette just spilled her drink
Soon that doll’s exposed with glee
A one night lover is all I can stand
Another lie from the vault: “Must leave for Japan”

It’s clear that I’m awesome chicks are clinging
Moanin’ “Wow! Barney!” each night flinging
Even clearer the suit I wield
Is legendary they want a feel
No dry season I’m always laid
Not just blondes all hair colors
Will want to have a turn
I’m the guy who wooed the girls

I’m not a prick cause I help my friends
As wingman roar “Have you met Ted?”
Flatter widows only if they’re young
The best way to grieve is with your tongue

Don’t really care for married life
Take my sack and pull out the knife
Pick up artist won’t put on a ring
Like, Baseball players stuck in a sling

Pour some booze in them to get mating
Robin Scherbatsky should be dating
Me it’s weirder the way I feel
You’d think that fairies would first be real
Should be treason to act this way
There’s nothing sweeter than scotch and dames
Marriage is for the nerds
Not the guy who rocks the girls


Playing laser-tag butt I’m kicking
When no gal’s tipsy to be tricking
Get them nearer their clothes are peeled
With trained canaries that make crowds yield
I’m appeased, Nope I can’t complain
Cause nothing beats my cigars and babes
Each night is more absurd
Cause I’m the guy who's wooed the girls

Oh, that Barney... What a rogue! Think you've captured him quite well. Kudos!

I have watched HIMYM many times, but not enough to get many of the lines here. No doubt, Barney is going to be remembered in the Halls of TV. But for uninitiated readers, this is pretty wacky, yet seemingly random.

(Artistry 77) I can't say I saw the show, so I had to wiki and YT Barney Stinson for more info before reading your parody. Let me tell you, you are 'awesome' for writing this tribute and have you met 3 sets of 5's? And 'suit up', Matt! :)

I know I'm not a part of the Artistry thing, but I just had to comment on this...excellent job!

(Artistry) Never seen the show, but it still works by itself as an over-the-top parody of womanizing douchebags everywhere. 555 for you!

It's not bad, I've never seen the show though, and you missed some of the internal rhymes. . .but its hard to get into a parody about a topic I know little/nothing of. . . and the first stanza threw me off "I Used to woo the girls" and the rest of that stanza goes to singular, then back to plural--can be a bit confusing

(Artistry) "The best way to grieve is with your tongue", heh heh. Never saw the show but this still works.
