The Lyrics

Well, this is my debut parody. So, be nice (but, honest too). I used to write parodies for talent shows at sleep away camp, but other than one song I wrote for work recently, I haven't done this since about 1981. Thanks for taking a look. Thanks, too, to JR.
We fight about how you flirt with girls in a bar
We fight about how you drive, almost wreck the car
We fight about the phone calls you’ve been making to your lover
About your running and my worrying and your mean sense of humor
We fight about our dreams and everything it seems
We fight about my friends, oh the fighting never ends
Your mom’s family dinners each and every week
Yeah, it’s bleak, we’re gonna fight until we both freak
We know fighting so much is bad and vile
And, so in a little while

I will hock my wedding ring
I will hock it right now
I will hock and I don’t care how
Oh I won’t cry
No more fights, late at night, what I want, is easy, to be free
I hate fighting about us, us, us, us, continuously, but quite honestly
I will hock my wedding ring
I will hock my wedding ring

We fight about your mood but never about my food
Your jokes that are crude and furniture I move
We fight about your mama in Encino, California
We fight about my mother and mostly ‘bout eachother
We fight about the sky and all of your sad lies
The ones that you devise and the ones I despise
We fight about the sun, about the rain and what’s fun
And commitments that you space and problems we face
I’m tired of fighting ‘bout everything
So soon, won’t tell you when

I will hock my wedding ring
I will hock it right now
I will hock it and I don’t care how
Oh I will try
I’m OK, and I’m glad, and not sad, that we live, agreeably
I’m done fighting about us, us, us, us, truthfully, no need to come with me
I will hock my wedding ring
I will hock my wedding ring
ring, ring, ring, ring, ring


Through, through, through, through, through, though, though, though, we’re thoughthoughthoughthoughthough
I will hock my wedding ring

I will hock my wedding ring
I will hock it right now
I willl hock it now and I don’t care how
Oh I won’t cry
It’s fine, we’re ok, we’re both free, we move on, happily
I’m done fighting about us, us, us, us, finally, so, it’s time you see…
I will hock my wedding ring
I will hock my wedding ring

Who is this JR guy? :) Awesome job on your first parody on the site...especially to a tough OS! I sang it to myself and it sounded good...had a certain ring to it :)
Paula - December 03, 2007 - Report this comment
Great job...I could totally hear it in my head. Awesome!
Heather - December 03, 2007 - Report this comment
Good job~ I know the OS ....very good! Awesome debut! I am glad you have been inspired to reaquaint yourself with an old talent. Good for you! (hugs)
Amy - December 03, 2007 - Report this comment
This is awesome. Congrats.....keep it up.
Bobby B - December 03, 2007 - Report this comment
This is hilarious. I think you should do a sequel - "All my exes live in Texas."
Laurie Alexander - December 03, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks all! Bobby, in my case, it's "Ex-Husband Lives in Maryland". Gimme time, I'll come up with something.

This may well be your first submission here, but it's obviously not a first parody - I had to track down the OS (but figured it was worth it, if only for the coincidence in names ;-) ), but this is vituperatively beautiful.
Arwen - December 05, 2007 - Report this comment
I go through the fellas pretty quickly, which everyone around here knows...so I approve of this parody. As a lover of fine jewels, however, I don't know why you'd part with the ring. I mean...it never did anything to you.

Nice work...and watch out for that JR guy...he's really cliquey, and kind of a bastard. ; ) I know this because I'm cliquey with him, and bastards are my favorite kinds of people. Hee hee...

(ABC4-I) Extremely well written parody to a tough country song. I see Phil cleared up the coincidence in last names. Welcome to the site, Laurie, and I look foward to more of your work!

There goes that Phil guy using English out here again. (vituperatively?) I hate this language barrier. Excellent write Laurie.

ABC4-I-Very nice job. Keep writing. You have a talent for this.

(ABC4-I) Good to know I'm not the only one to notice the name-similarity with Phil. This was very well done. Keep 'em coming!

(ABC4) you've arrived at amiright following the same route all of us have, Laurie - a quirky interest in writing the occasional parody, followed by the astonishing discovery of a website full of similar-minded people - you are among friends here - stick around - loved "furniture I move" and the whole idea here - and I feel the need to shamelessly plug my own similar idea:

and watch out for JR - he used to give "that Barnes woman" hell
Laurie Alexander - December 26, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks to all of your for your feedback and encouragement. Stu--I just looked at your song. It was a riot! Writing this song was very cathartic for me. I was cracking myself up as I wrote it (I can't be the only one that does that, amiright?). I think the only part in that isn't true is fighting about the rain. No, I'm sure we fought about that, too! Can't wait 'til my divorce is final (will be very soon) so I can send it to my ex!

Who is this Barnes woman? :)

(ABC4) Your new? Well good luck with the divorce Laurie, and warm welcome to the site! Hope to see more by you in other contests as well:)

(ABC4) Hi, nice to meet another newbie! DKTOS (which in amiright parlance means I Don't Know The Original Song), so I surfed for the video (which many contest entrants often provide in addition to their parody link). Pacing was hard in this, so there was occasional slipups. Could have had a bit more more humor, but maybe the bittersweet attitude was what you had intended. Keep on writing, Laurie!
Matthias - December 27, 2007 - Report this comment
I agree with Aggy, I tripped up a few times during reading this.... Still I think that this took a good transition in idea from the original song which is an egotistical dude wanting to talk about himself, instead about always talking about his wife, and this could almost be the sequel to it where the wife notices Toby's whining egotistical behavoir and divorces him. So creative idea on that part. By the way, I love Toby Keith and the original song.

(ABC) The sad part is that I actually know this song...it was forced down my throat in the Driver's Ed car. *suppresses bad memories*

But welcome to the club, Laurie! Nice job here, and we could always use more lady parodists around here to balance out the surplus of Y chromosomes. =P
