The Lyrics

Doctor, I…fear that I'm in need of a different bum
Oh you should see ev'ry time I run
Everything’s just so jigg-le-y

I cry and moan when my friends all say “Work out!"
It makes me sigh and it makes me pout
Much more sag, and I’ll cover my knees

I've saved for so long
To pay out of pocket
And now I know, from checking the market
From the back I want to look like Jo-lie

Oh, and I ain't saying…I ain't pretty
My boyfriend says that it’s petty
But I catch his eyes wandering
And resting on chicks firm-er than me

So please try…I am pleading
I swear I won’t mind internal bleeding
He’ll love me a lot stronger
When I am a size three

And if you don’t mind
What you suck with a tube
Please place inside my double A boobs
So my boy will want to love only me

Yes, and it’s worth paying…make me “pretty”
So to PRO-pose, he’ll be ready
And kneeling, he’ll whip out that ring
To offer up his future to me

That’s when I…I'll be leaving
‘Cause he’s so dense to sit there believing
That I’d stay any longer
If he can’t love the “real” me

Excellent, as usual - the last lines made me cheer. 555

Ah the woes of womanhood. This needs no "enhancement" whatsoever! Fabulous.

Your last line sums it up well. By the way, I missed you.

Satire at its best. Nice work. I saw Linda with the Stone Ponies as the opening act for The Doors when I was a kid, at the long-gone Back Bay Theater in Boston.

I agree with John about the satire. Just terrific, Arwen

Johnny...thanks a bunch!

Ravyn...I'm glad you liked it. I would hope that any strong woman would appreciate that little plot twist...=)

Ash...hee! Thanks a ton!'re right. I've never asked a doctor to alter one single part of me...I'm too much of a fan of myself. =) And...if any man in my life even implied that I should look into plastic surgery, he'd most likely end up needing some reconstructive surgery on his face...; )


2Eagle...awww...well it's always nice to be missed. Thanks very much.'s a good thing! Thanks!

John...what a compliment. Thanks a lot...=)

Dee...=) Thank you!

At first, I thought this was gonna be a parody about how you need a new boyfriend (bum). I was pleasantly suprised. 555
Arwen - June 14, 2007 - Report this comment
McKludge...ah, no. I've got too many bums to deal with at the moment...don't need any more...; ) Thanks!

I can't say I'm too familiar with this OS, but I decided to read it anyway and give it a perfect score! Great stuff. :-)

Ferragamo...thanks very much! =)
Jeff Reuben - June 16, 2007 - Report this comment
And here I figured this was about you needing a new man (glad to see that show up at the end) =)
Arwen - June 17, 2007 - Report this comment
Jeffy...thanks a bunch...I think that was a common misconception. I think my reputation preceded me on this one...=)

As for that 1-1-1, thanks a BUNCH, Mr. Anonymous Jerkface! I feel honored to be dealt such a irrelevant blow. The fact that you're giving 1's to everyone who disagreed with your Butt Kissing parody is SO mature!

Stu Tune...That's funny...I almost put that VERY line in the parody...but it didn't pace too well.

Nice job with a classic tune. Great twist at the end -- baby got back... at him.
Arwen - July 20, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks, Leo. I actually thought of you when I wrote it reminded me of the "Doctor My Eyes" parody we did together a million years ago. =)
