The Lyrics

It's the price you pay when you're astoundingly beautiful...but you don't have to like it...
It doesn't matter where I go or what I do
Each time I turn the corner I run into you
Makes me uneasy--don't like your style
You ought to be committed for a little while

Your comments are taboo
I don't like being stalked by you

I don't know why you don't get it when I say "no"
Don't like your songs about you sucking on my toe
I hate your advances, can't you see?
I need the law to help keep you away from me

My face is your tattoo
I don't like being stalked by you

Each time you smile at me--never give you half a glance
Don't you think you'll set off alarms by chasing me with no pants?

Now listen buddy!
I just gotta say that I'm sick of your stare
You make me feel as if I'm not safe anywhere
I look out and see you perched in my tree
You're up there with my ex-boyfriend's Plasma TV

I know you stole my shoes
I don't like being stalked by you

Please stop annoying me--like a boil I want to lance
No, I'm not falling for your charms--I don't want a free lap dance

I'm beggin' buddy!
I don't want to have to get a bodyguard
Don't want to hear that knowing me has made things hard
Now each time I see you, I want to flee
I shouldn't have to hide under my desk, you see

You make me want to spew
I don't like being stalked by you

I'm now learning Kung Fu
I don't like being stalked by you
Special thanks to Spaff...who refuses to stalk me no matter how much I beg...but who provided a bit of inspiration here anyway...

WOW! Perfect pacing! I can hear Dusty singing this parody's lyrics in my head as clear as can be! "You're up there with my ex-boyfriend's Plasma TV"......ah, life imitating art imitating a parody of life imitating a parody of art....ahhhhh.....very satisfying parody, Arwen. 555!

Who in the sam hill gave you 4's for funny? This is HILARIOUS!! Especially
"I look out and see you perched in my tree
You're up there with my ex-boyfriend's Plasma TV"

and
"Don't want to hear that knowing me has made things hard"

LMAO!!!

Well, Ash...since Agrimorfee blew the lid off of our secret online affair, I don't think anyone will consider your comments to be valid...but I appreciate them! Thanks!

Guess I'll have to re-think the parody I did about your toe...

Hmmm... perhaps I should cancel my order for those night vision goggles, then....

That was great :-)
Arwen - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh Adam...I totally like being stalked by YOU! This was dedicated...and I suppose I should have said this...to the creepy computer guy here at work. Thanks, buddy!

Loved it!

Great job, arwen! I always enjoy reading your parodies; this one was very entertaining. 5-5-5. ;)
John Barry - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Loved the juxtaposition of the mundane "I don't like" with the creepy subject matter.

Thanks a bunch, joe!

Thanks, Serafina! I always enjoy reading your comments!

OK OK..i'll stop...don't write songs about me anymore.....hee hee hee......5s
Arwen - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh alvin...don't be silly...just as I had to set Adam straight...I TOTALLY welcome YOUR stalking. It's the "company's computer guy" who gives me the willies. Or at least he'd like to...if you know what I mean...; ) Thanks!

Arwen - Great job - perhaps you should follow my character's solution in this parody: http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/jonimitchell4.shtml

John Barry: I must have been posting at the same time as you because I totally missed your comment! Thanks so much!!!

And thanks, Paul! I'll check it out!

Don't look at me, I can't see Wyoming with my telescope. (Now why would Mike need a telescope?)

I would compliment you on this but it hurts. I promise that all I'm doing in the tree is trying to get that plasma TV. (No luck yet - what'd you do, glue it?) As for chasing you with no pants, well, I have to - I'm allergic to cotton.
Arwen - October 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Basically...I hate to beat a dead horse...and I'm not sure if you're mocking me...but the glue DOESN'T work!

However...if you've got thirty-eight feet of twine, a roll and a half of electrical tape, a soldering iron, and a WHOLE lotta patience...you're in business.

Um...at least that's what I read in...um...Popular Science...

Outstanding! I must echo the Ashkicker's kudos for "don't want to hear that knowing me has made things hard". The 'ex's TV' line was brilliant also. And I love the series of rotating lines that precede "I don't like being stalked by you".

Mr. Leo Jay. I don't know how I went a month without thanking you for that comment! You ROCK!! Thank you thank you thank you!
Spaff.com - November 09, 2005 - Report this comment
It's been over a year since my last comment, so that means the restraining order has expired and my comments are no longer taboo. HA!

What Leo said. Great stuff.
