The Lyrics

Tribute to comic legends Henny Youngman & Rodney Dangerfield...
[Henny]
My wife, my wife... please take her!
She fakes it when naked, my wife --
She says her sex life is only great
when I'm out working late!
What a tramp is...
my wife!
My life's a torture!

[Rodney]
You oughta divorce her, your wife!

[Henny]
But Rodney, if I pursue divorce,
then my comedic source
would be dried up for life!

She is a bitch, true --
a broom-bearing witch, too,
but she makes me rich through
sourcing all my jokes...
Divorce, I've thwarted --
my position towards it's
that I can't afford it --
that's for poorer folks...

Success makes stress well worth it --
my schtick makes me thick with success!
And so her shrewing I will endure...

[Rodney]
Better than being poor!

[Henny]
Won't you please take...

[Rodney]
...your checks?
Respect, can't get it --
I'm due, but accrue, no respect!
Right from the womb, I got my first sign:
Mom said, "Doc, he's not mine!"
Geez, I get no respect!
Respect's not offered --
There ought to be laws for respect...

[Henny]
But surely, your wife's not awful too...?

[Rodney]
She said she'd rather screw
dead guy Gregory Peck!

How unexpected:
Being disrespected
means I've now collected
millions more in fees;
Kids call me "doofus",
People like to "boo-hiss",
but the happy truth is,
I'm in the mon-ey!

[Henny & Rodney]
We're screwed, it's true -- and badly!
But gladly we handle the loot!
Yes, we are riding the gravy train
because we both complain --
Now we're both set...
FOR LIFE!

Thanks all, and thanks Merry and Jeff for your honest assessments. I don't think this is a ROTFL-er either -- more like a cute chuckler. Nice to get the candid feedback! (Though ass-kissing and pandering is always welcome, too for those who feel so inclined...)
