The Lyrics

Thank you to Leo Jay and Arwen for their advice on this one
Do you have to scream
When I ask you on a date?
No mace it hurts my face
Please don't stick your dog on me
Cause I swear to you I won't always look this way
Flabby man boobies
And my ear hair's frizzy

But I don't wanna be homely no more
I don't wanna have to look like this
When I walk up and knock on my date's door
Don't wanna get shoved into the bushes
I don't wanna be ugly no more
I don't wanna have a face like this
So before you laugh and beat me up know for sure
I don't want to be homely anymore

Can't control my pee, so I have to wear Depends
Chicks, they just can't see, past my excessive flatulence
And my nails are green, missing half my teeth
Girl, you don't really like my farmer's tan
Scratch my groin with my hand; got that itchy rash again
Makes me want to cry

I don't wanna be homely no more
I don't wanna wear this pelvic brace
When I see a hot chick and I try to score
I always get the door slammed in my face
I don't wanna repulse you no more
You yell "Hi Gene!" but my name is Jace
So when you think you're gonna dump me know for sure
I'm not gonna be homely anymore

What if I work out for you, what if I would brush my teeth
What if I would wax my unibrow and pick my nosehairs clean
If I stop attracting flies, bathe with regularity
Shave my back, clean out my ear goo, lose the pork-chop, mullet hairdo

I don't wanna be homely no more
I don't wanna face all full of zits
Gonna buy deodorant at the drug store
So you don't have to smell my sweaty pits
I'm not gonna have stank breath no more
I decided to invest in mints
So when I blow a kiss you won't faint on the floor
I don't want to be homely anymore

I don't wanna be homely anymore...

Won't find my dates at the dog pound anymore...

Won't ask grandma to prom night anymore...

Well all I can say is, it's about dang time Jeff! How long have I been telling you to shower and brush your teeth? Good thing you're such a good parody writer...

DKTOS, but the lyrics are great. And hey, thanks for the mention, guy!

SOTM - Extremely funny stuff here but IMHO you sacrificed a bit of pacing to achieve that, the number of LOLs made up for that and this is still a contender though! :-)

SOTM - You know you are really ugly when you look the word up in the dictionary and your picture is there as an example of ugly. 5 hits from the old ugly stick.

(SOTM) Well, you know I loved this one, it's not all the time I decide to accompany someone:) That was fun jumping in and doing supporting vocals. . .I should do that more often. . .great parody Jeff, love it.

(SOTM) Good Weird- Al-style goofiness.

SOTM- Well, they say looks are not important, it's how you parody that attracts a woman. At least that's what I want to believe. Very funny and well done, Jeff.

(SOTM) Jeff Reuben is back in business? Doing an OS I know? WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?!

Um, well done, 555, you know the drill.

(SOTM) hey, is that "invite Grandmom to Prom night" a nod to Kristof's old parody, Jeff? - if so, we're getting like the hip-hoppers here on amiright - some great lines here, and I loved the appropriately whiny recording - 555
Kristof Robertson - November 29, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above....a brilliant tribute to the beauty-challenged. Nice work, Jeffaroo!
McKludge - November 29, 2007 - Report this comment
SOTM - DKTOS because I'm not a Rob Thomas fan, but this had lots of good lines about the socially challenged.

I think I commented on the recording... excellent work there and great recordings start with great lyrics. One of your best, IMO. 555

Jeff, I love almost everything you've ever done, you know that, but this one for whatever reason has always resonated strongly with me. I have always found it particularly hilarious, part of it is how opposite it is compared to the original's smooth flowing vocals, and Rob Thomas' intentional sexy look that accompanies it. You know, I put everything I was working on when you released your initial version of this, got Recisio's backing track, edited it, and put in my backing vocals because I saw this one in a way I guess others may or may not--I love this one, which is why I jumped on it when I had the opportunity.

(ABC G & H) Are you sure you're not Weird Al Yankovic masquerading as someone named Jeff Reuben? I get that feeling with much of your work. One of your best ever, and this guy in the parody seems like he'd make the average homeless alcoholic smell like a rose. 5s.

(ABC-GH) See above (again)!

(ABC G/H) When's the last time you shaved your back?! LOL (j/k)!! I really enjoyed this OS lots! At first I thought that Enrique Iglesias sung this OS, but I like Rob Thomas, too. Clever use of hygenic humor and got me laughing big time. At ditto on the "deodorant" line...which I would like to call "armpit perfume" like Dennis The Menace does in the 1993 movie. 5 shaving creams, 5 body wash, and 5 shampoos for this one.
Warren Baker - June 14, 2010 - Report this comment
(ABC G/H) This is a defining definition of homely. Great work! I'm still laughing at the "faint and hit the floor" line. Inspired. 5's.

(Artistry 2) "Hi Gene!" Nice to see this here again. --damn, this song sucks more than I remember
Abbott Skelding - March 20, 2014 - Report this comment
I gotta go with the above consensus about the "Hi Gene" line...funny stuff! A lot of great lines that went with the OS pretty well. Nice work!
Glen S - March 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I'm glad you entered this Jeff. Its great and has tons of classic Jeff gags. Great rhyme scheme, and I'm also a fan of the 'HI GENE' line. Great work overall, and its good to be in a tournament with you again. It feels like several years since the last one we were in together.

(Artistry) See above! I'd say third time's the charm, but that'd imply it took three re-reads to full enjoy this, and this was fantastic from the get-go.
Matthias - March 25, 2014 - Report this comment
This is a classic Jeff Reuben parody and a Below Average Dave recording. This one is fantastic!

(Artistry) Super funny, but gross imagery!
