The Lyrics

Ok.....Now I decided to write this song because there are probably other people out there who have obsessive friends like this....For me, this is kinda based on a true thing in my life.... But no I am NOT the obsessive ex in the song...I just so happend to be the new guy the girl in this song is dating...Well I think you can figure it out once you read it. Enjoy.
(Me)
Days seem to come and go,
He's thinking of her,
She's with another guy, [<---That guy being me]
That makes her happier.
His love is gone,
His nights are long,
But still he just constantly calls.

(Ex-boyfriend)
Do you think we can be friends,
On the phone?
Otherwise my life will end,
Cause I'm alone.
I've got nothing to prove.

(Girl)
Ring, Ring, Ring, went the telephone
Again it's you, my former love.
Can you just please leave me be,
You're driving me insane.

(Me)
He still attempts to try,
Instead of moving on,
Just doesn't know why, how, where
He could've gone wrong.
His days turn cold,
Descend, unfold.
And breakdown cause of his ex-true love.

(Ex-boyfriend)
Do you think we can be friends,
On the phone?
Otherwise my life will end,
Cause I'm alone.
I've got nothing to prove.

(Girl)
Ring, Ring, Ring, went the telephone
Again it's you, my former love.
Can you just please leave me be,
You're driving me insane.

(Girl)
CALLING ME!
He constantly just keeps on
CALLING ME!
Every...Every...Every(day)

(Girl)
Ring, Ring, Ring, went the telephone
Again it's you, my former love.
Can you just please leave me be,
You're driving me insane.
[Repeat and Fade]
In conclusion....If in fact the ex-boyfriend somehow manages to see this song...I'm asking you very nicely....Please, stop calling my girlfriend. Thank you

"I was with her when you snoored and drooled.Sometimes I thought you might be spying or having some brash fantasy but no you were knocked out but we were all knocked out you know in a way/ I told you" Let's keep this a secret! Remember if it rings once and then you hear the click when you pick it up it's probably me (I'm really just scared to talk to her cause it's been a long time). 'Beep Beep Jeffie!!!! '"I'm every nightmare you ever had, I am your worst dream come true, I'm everything you ever were afraid of!" -Pennywise By the way, I did stop calling your girl but I think she called my best friend or something and told him some things so I might decide to call her back if your the person I think you are then you should be nice and let us (meaning me and your girlfriend) on a date. We would have a splendid time don't you think? or I could just say that I don't like women but like men instead. I think I mentioned the girl-to-girl thing to her a long time when she called her best friend "beautiful ' Believe what you may but I will call her maybe another day....hahahaha (lights fade)

You know....I'm wondering how this Parody went from a 4.0 rating to a 1.8???? Anyway...Whomever this so-called "boyfriend" person is....For your information.....Her name does NOT start with a "C"....So....that shows how smart you are with all these little threats and "worst nightmare" thing.....So.......Please whoever you are.....Cut the crap already. Cuz it's not scaring me. Thank you

Wow sorry dude didn't mean to write that parody saw the comments got inspired some people are loonies

Kind of think of it I take this parody personally and the one about the homeless guy too. Do you know what it's like to be bankrupt? or have people you hate calling your house? I won't add insult to injury cause' there are some who may agree with me on this one. That may be the reason you get low ratings. You just don't understand where I'm coming from and if you did you may not have written this. You know pride is a sin. You may fall off your big ego mountain one day and start realizing that there is something called "empathy" Pennywise is a quote, which shows how much intellect you have. I like how you end everything with Thank You. No thanks to you for not showing a bit of humanity toward your fellow man. You ignited the fire. Not me. I won't threaten you,sorry, but this elicits some bad feelings to me. If you didn't want comments why did you have the section for it? Ah! who cares!

Ok ok ok.....Why did I want comments....Because I wanted people to say what they thought of the parody.....Not for someone to PRETEND to be the Ex-Boyfriend in the song......So if in fact I did offend ANYONE at all.....I am sorry......Oh and whoever "Sixx" is....I kinda didn't understand why you are apologizing to me when...well......I mean you didn't really need to because well......I never said anything about you or anything.....If you thought I did then I am the one that is sorry...But Parodies are supposed to be like...Well....Humorous and like well....In a way pick on people.....Heck do you know how many George W. Bush parodies there are on this site......So.....Like I said before I really don't mean to offend anyone....Really I don't

Well maybe you do have some empathy after all. Cool, sorry again. I have some issues that need attending to. Like I'm afraid to call this girl I love and talk to her cause I haven't seen/talked to her for a year and I don't know if she hates me or not so yeah it's been difficult cause when she calls she hangs up if I call then I'm Mr. Obsessive-ex which is a bit of a generalization. I feel shattered and broken everyday cause' I think she is seeing someone else but I know truly she still has feelings for me. I don't know who said it but it goes "Hate is the closest thing to love" Why do people spend time hating other people? If they constantly think about the person they hate isn't this same behavior illustrated by those we love the most or maybe just friends? "We constantly think about our love for them" Often if it is truly mutual, it never dies even if the person claims to be in love with someone else. See?

Ok this is the last comment I'm going to post about this song....For all the guys who feel like they are the "Obsessive Ex" in this song.....I truly deeply apologize...I was only going after the guy I know as the Ex. Plus, I know for a fact that the girl I am dating now doesn't have the same feelings for this particular Ex like she did before. Still...She wants to be friends with him...Except he's getting a little annoying cause he keeps calling her and asking the same question all the time. "Are we still friends". It's just.....It's just getting out of hand that's all. So...I hope you see where I'm coming from here and why I'm a little bit frustrated...But again I didn't mean to offend anyone. I'm sorry.
