The Lyrics

As a reward to myself and a token of my appreciation to those of you who have taken the time to read my Christmas Challenge parodies, I decided to take a short break and surprise you guys with a SUPER-special non-Christmas parody. To "21 Guns," one of my favorite Green Day songs, this parody is written in honor of the (in)famous $2.5-million bra sported by the beautiful Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr in the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Written in a male POV.
Do you know that I’m in debt now?
And it’s over lingerie!
Looking at it made her go, “Wow!”
But now my bank account’s suffering.

Saw it on that fashion show
Dialed the number nice and slow
Bought it for her, now I feel low
I’m in ruins

Spent two-point-five million
Dollars on a dumb name-brand bra
Pearls, diamonds galore
Just on that bra, won’t have to buy
Jewelry

I’ve consulted bankruptcy firms
And every attorney just squirms
Then they drop all their jaws in shock
When they learn I’m filing over a bra

Meanwhile my girl’s happy
She has tried to find matching wings
That she can wear with that bra
That damn bra

Spent two-point-five million
Dollars on a dumb name-brand bra
Pearls, diamonds galore
Just on that bra, won’t have to buy
Jewelry

We find ourselves working three jobs
All the while the bra collects dust
I had thought about selling it
But what consignment store will take a dusty bra?

Sold our car and our SUV
We take public transportation
My once-good credit score has gone
Down the drain

Spent two-point-five million
Dollars on a dumb name-brand bra
Pearls, diamonds galore
Just on that bra, won’t have to buy

Spent two-point-five million
Dollars on a dumb name-brand bra
Pearls, diamonds galore
Just on that bra, won’t have to buy
Jewelry

That's nothing. The Strauss Diamond Wedding Gown went for $12 mil and the Victoria's Secret 2002 opening on Broadway sold underwear for $15 mil...!!! Anyway, nice bra tale- let me be "supportive" and give 555!

I think there was a bra a few years ago that went for $8 mil as well. I'm glad you enjoyed my song, and I appreciate your support. =)
