The Lyrics

Here's my first attempt on this site to write a parody and this one's from the heart... a big lesson learned by dating a woman from the office where I work... My arm's arms still growing in length from reaching around to my back to pull out all the knives!!!
Petty woman talkin' mean and cheap
Petty woman the kind that cuts soo deep
Petty woman I can't believe you, please tell the truth!
No one can back stab good as you


Petty woman don't you rag on me
Petty woman you're snakish as can be
Petty woman oh yes you're venom's killin' me
You're just so evil can't you see?


Petty woman crack a smile
Petty woman change your style
Petty woman don't be vile to me

Petty woman yeah yeah yeah
Petty woman mend your ways
Petty woman say you'll stay with me

'Cuz I want you I'll treat right
Come with me baby - let's dine tonight

Petty woman you said good bye
Petty woman you made me cry
Petty woman you've walked away, -kay!

O-kay If that's the way you must be o-kay..(sniff)

Now you just go on home! it's late
I'll meet someone who's right,

but wait...

What do I see...

She's still stickin' it to me!
Yeah, she's stickin' it to me!

Oh, Ohhhhhh petty woman!

Who Cares - Been waiting to see your first - Good job. Looking forward to more from you. Pace and timing on this number was quite good. I gave you 5s as well since it was such a good write for a first parody. You didn't make the same mistakes that I did on my first attempts. You'll season as you continue to write. Looking forward to seeing some good stuff from you. Thanks!

Learned a few lessons the hard way, huh? Happens to all of us. Pull out the rest of the knives and send more of your stuff in. I thought the title was clever. Just remove the "r" and get a whole new meaning.

WHO CARES : Congratulations! 15 votes on a first parody is a rare event, and to have such good marks on a first post is extrordinary. I'd say you need to write a few more!

Nice debut! Much better that 2 Live Crew's parody titled Big Hairy Woman.
