"I Always Seem To Injure You"

Parody Written by:

Kristof Robertson

The Lyrics

The course of true love NEVER runs smoothly....
I plum forgot about the thorns on your red rose
I bought you a small puppy and it bit your nose
And the fancy bouquetthat made you sneeze
Was full of angry Africanised killer bees
No matter what I do
I always seem to injure you

We tried to copy Romeo and Juliet
Til you fell off my balcony and broke your head
While can-dlelight dancinglike Fred and Ginge
I waltzed too near a naked flame; your hair did singe
Your dress ignited too
I always seem to injure you

A toast with French champagne:
The cork knocked out your two front tee-eeth
The ice sculpture of you I carved:
It fellpinned you underneath

I'm sorry, honey!

I may be romantic, but I'm such a putz
I didn't know those chocolates were filled with nuts
Coz you were allergic, your face went grey
I guess I won't be cooking you that beef satay
I do not have a clue
Enamoured, but I injure you

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Last night, while making love
I stroked your hair and kissed your fa-ace
We tried some Kama Sutra moves;
And now you're in a neck brace

A-whoopsadaisy!

I'm surprised we're still together; I'll admit
That when we go on dates I take a first aid kit
You know that I love yalet's marry soon!
I'll book a bed in ER for our honeymoon
My darling, please don't sue
I never mean to injure you!

I hope you're well insured
I always seem to injure you

I didn't know you were dating Arwen! LOL, great job!
Rex - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
I also noticed the Arwenesque idiom... this also made me think of Tom Leher's "Masochism Tango". Funny stuff.
Arwen - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Fabulous from start to finish...but "A-whoopsadaisy!" was beyond inspired! WON-derful!!!

And I don't know what the other boys are talking about...this reminded me NOTHING of myself...; )

TMGLTMSIOMO. The Kama Sutra moves line was one of my favorites here.
Kristof Robertson - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, all!
Jeff: You didn't? We've been dating in the back of ambulances for some time now...:-D
Rex: Don't know much about Tom Lehrer. I'll have to check him out. Thanks
Arwen: And I honestly didn't intend to base this on you either. But...when I saw the finished product...;-) Cheers, gorgeous!
Alvin: I'm sorry...your insurance probably doesn't cover parody-related contusions! Thanks, mate
YAD: much appreciated. I must admit, I do love slapping a stick from time to time. ;-)
Rick: TMGLTMSIOMO?? TYVMFYCs!!

Priceless! Kristofesque. I echo Rick's TMGLTMSIOMO with "I'll book a bed in ER for our honeymoon" but the "I'm sorry, honey" and "a-whoopsadaisy" were perfect too - and gee, you ironed out any threats of pacing ambiguity with this one - very very funny - 555

LOL....great lines, Kristof. I see only good stuff in your parody. 5's

Red Ant - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I would third the TMGLTMSIOMO except I am at a loss to figure out what the hell SIOMO means ATM so I'll just have to do the TMGLTM part. And 5s.

Must admit I DKOS. But I will admit that this is up to your usual standards. Which is higher than most of us will ever reach. Terriffic stuff, Kristof! 555
Rick C - December 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Sorry, Kristof. TMGLTMSIOMO = too many good lines to mention so, I'll only mention one.
Kristof Robertson - December 08, 2005 - Report this comment
AFW: Yeah, my life's one big medical bill.;-) Thanks

Matthias: Good idea!

Carol: You really ought to take more care when parody reading! Cheers

Stu: As always, your support's much appreciated, mate!

Adagio: Thanks alot, sweetie

John: In two words: bless you!

Red Ant: SIOMO...So I'll Only Mention One (I think..) Cheers, twice!

Dee: I'm SURE you'd know the OS if you heard it...it's one of those classics that people forget they know. If not; try to get yourself a copy- it's fab! Cheers, dude

(SOTM)I was eating lunch when I re-read this and "I'll book a bed in ER for our honeymoon" almost made me choke on my beef satay.

Perfectly executed concept and gags. This theme is what I was trying to do pull off in my Valentine's parody http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/britneyspears281.shtml but of course, yours in infinitely better. I even slightly KTOS! 555
Phil Alexander - January 20, 2006 - Report this comment
Amazingly good, even for your high standards, K. And very consistent all the way through.
Spaff.com - January 22, 2006 - Report this comment
I love Dusty Springfield. I love the OS. I even love the Bay City Rollers cover.

And I love this parody too. Kristof meets Arwen. TMGLTMSIOM3: "Your dress ignited too," "A-whoopsadaisy!" and, of most of all, the ER bit.

SOTM - Too bad for you that December was the month Spaff put up what's possibly the best parody ever, I saved it for last hoping it would match it, but I'm sad too say that this will only go as numero deuce and the first loser on my list. (Unless someone outside the dynamic duo of you two sends me some bribe money RSN). :-)

SOTM - It pains me to say it, but I tripped over your 5's. I hope you're not sore.
Stuart McArthur - January 27, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) - already slavishly praised this one, but here's another fave line: "That when we go on dates I take a first aid kit" - and the use of "Enamoured" was pacing gold too
Red Ant - January 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) What left to say besides repeating "TMGLTM"? I do have a question though for anyone who knows: Is this the same song Hootie and the Blowfish did?.

Claude Prez - January 30, 2006 - Report this comment
What everyone else said, with the TMGLTM and the 555 and whatnot. All right, I do have to single out the "A-whoopsadaisy" part; that was awesome. And for Red Ant: No, this is a totally different song from that Hootie one.
