The Lyrics

This is one of my favorite Lady Gaga songs next to “Just Dance”. This is a very common situation. This is about being frustrated over a steak you can’t chew or the fact that it may take hours to get a piece of a steak cut, which makes it hard to savor a hearty meal. Heck, it happens to everybody. I’m not a big fan of well-done steaks. I’m a big fan of tender, juicy steaks that are rare or medium because they’re a lot easier to digest. If you want to listen to the OS, click to listen to Lady Gaga's I Like It Rough.
(A chef’s disaster, now I am doomed!)
(Meat’s overdone!)
(My steak is tough!)

(Instrumental Intro)

This steak is something I can’t bite!
(Can’t bite)
Can’t eat, I’ve caused damage to my knives
(My knives)

It feels like cardboard, the juices have dried
I’m at this table struggling to cut one single slice
I split my molars
It's harder than gold
It is too well done
Eating steak’s like chewing on stones
(Chewing on stones)

It got me wondering why, my,
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, I
I’m in a rut
It got me wondering why, my,
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, now
My knife is stuck

Dinner had got me so uptight
(Uptight)
This T-Bone is too tough
(Bone is too tough)
By now, I had finished all my sides
(My sides)
But it’s still not enough

I need a chainsaw (chainsaw), to cut through this wood
Most of its flavor’s fading and it doesn’t taste good
Been here for hours (hours)
This meat’s now stone cold
Might as well give up
Better off with eating some bones
(Eating some bones)

It got me wondering why, my,
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, now
My fork is stuck
It got me wondering why, my,
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, now
My teeth is stuck

So angry I can’t bite it
Spent my whole dinner to fight it
Stuck with steak that’s hard as rocks
Hard as rocks, hard as rocks
(I hate that it’s tough)
It’s cardboard and I know it
I decided I should throw it
I won’t eat a steak that’s tough
Slightly tough, slightly tough
(Don’t want steak that is tough)
(Repeat in background)

Don’t know why I can’t eat it
Now I feel so defeated
Why’s it tough? (It’s too tough)
(Hate that it's tough)
My dog won’t even eat it
Might as well just deplete it
It’s too rough!
(Hate steak that’s tough!)

It got me wondering why, my
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, now
I’m going nuts
It got me wondering why, my
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, now
I’ve run amok
It got me wondering why, my
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, now
It really sucks
It got me wondering why, my
My steak is tough, I
Can’t get it cut, I
I’ve had enough

(Instrumental solo fade off)

Not much of a steak person (or a meat-eater in general), but pretty good job. Great to see you writing again, and 5s for you.
Christie Marie M - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Andria! :) I admit it, ought to start writing parodies very often. It often depends on whether I have an idea to write about or what I want to write about. I also haven't eaten steak since March.

Awesome new parody! I echo Andria's comment, except that I am carnivorous. 555
Christie Marie M - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, DJ Blaze! :) It's great to be carnivorous. I love steak of all types, as long as it's medium rare! However, I'm actually omnivorous. I love eating meat and vegetables.

I "chewed" us the great imagery of this meal. Delicious parody!!! Tipped ya fives, Christie!
Mark Scotti - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Typo- Make that "chewed" UP!
Christie Marie M - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Mark! :) I knew what you meant. You really made my day! Thanks for the 5 tip! Glad you enjoyed! Oh, I also made a typo on my name yesterday on someone's parody, too.

Two words: Ham - burger..... and you really need to stop eating steak at Denny's :) 555, no mis-steak about it!
Christie Marie M - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Seaweed-eating Turtle (Tommy Turtle)! :) Yep, I my self feast on seaweed whenever I eat sushi and/or seaweed salad! It's very healthy. Oh, I had never been to Denny's (and probably won't) my whole life, even when we vacationed in Florida. LOL at mis-steak!! Awesome pun! ;)

Thanks for leaving the link; I had not heard any Lady Gaga songs; your parody was well done in matching the OS and something to relate to as many have had a bad steak from time to time.
Christie Marie M - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Timmy1000! :) I have Lady Gaga's "The Fame" in my CD, which this OS is included. Can't get enough of Gaga. I've had my share of bad steak as well, just as described in my song, but this situation is really not big of a deal. I hate steak dry and bland because it's very hard to digest. Glad you enjoyed my parody, though!

Actually, I share a little toasted Nori with my friend quite frequently. He feels very lucky to have been adopted into one of the few homes where seaweed is served often -- and yep, every one of the 58 minerals in sea water is in seaweed, versus "refined" salt, where they take out all 58 and put one back (iodine).

You've trimmed off the fat and left a tasty parody
DJ Blaze - August 01, 2009 - Report this comment
TT, I find it ironic that "Nori" is Japanese for "music", as well as being a foodstuff that you mentioned.
Christie Marie M - August 01, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks to TT's Transcriber! :) Toasted Nori is very appetizing. Thanks for the valuable info!...Thanks, AFW! :) Glad that I can trim the fat! You made my day!...Thanks again, DJ! :) I know you're talking to TT, but "ongaku" is another Japanese word for "music". I thought that "Nori" is Korean also for music, but you could be right. You brushed up on your Japanese well!

DKTOS (didn't play the track because I'm way too old for that type of music) but a great idea - especially liked my dog won't even eat it
Christie Marie M - August 02, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Andy! :) I understand completely. As for me I may be too young for Sammy Davis, but too old for Hannah Montana, but I listen to their music anyway. I love listening to 80's music because that's the kind of music I grew up with. Actually, I listen to all kinds of music, depending what I'm in the mood for. I'm also thinking of spoofing Beatles music someday. This part about the dog in my song just came to me right away. My dog actually eats almost anything in particular. Glad you enjoyed this parody, though!

Awesome parody! Haven't laughed that hard in a while. =)

Thanks, Mike! :) I'm glad you enjoyed. My song is that funny! Nice to hear that you got a kick out of it!
