Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Yeah, sometimes men are idiots. That's all I can say.
I should have known this thing would go sour
Dunno how I could be in "the mood"
I've been sweating for an hour
He thought it looked sexy in the catalog, you see
I don't think I'll be the same again
Since he gave it to me

And he THOUGHT we'd have a special night
BUT I'm not a bit aroused
Oh how I wish he'd never bought this Red Rubber Bra

Pre-sents are rare, so I swallowed my pride
But I look like a hooker now
Searching for a ride
"No, it wouldn't make me happier
If it were blue
Wonder how you'd feel if I
Put this thing on you?"

And it's JUST getting more and more tight
GOT to get it off somehow
No nothing is more binding than this Red Rubber Bra

It really doesn't help that he bought it too small
I'd hate it even if it fit
But I can't breath at all
The evening of "romance" he planned is screeching to an end
He would have done much better with
A simple cotton blend

As his FACE is filling up with fright
SAY-ing, "Babe, don't have a cow"
But he'll always regret buying this Red Rubber Bra

So he's SLEEP-ing on the couch tonight
'CAUSE I've got a rash right now
Don't know when I'll forgive him for this Red Rubber Bra
I realize that those of you who know the OS are probably more familiar with the version released by The Cyrkle...(as am I, to be honest)...but the song was written by Paul Simon and was originally recorded by S&G before The Cyrkle got hold of it.

SOTM - For the record, black and red is all very fine but if a woman wanna spin me totally out of control she has to come in a yellow outfit all the way through, don't know why I'm a sucker for that colour, probably some kind of colour psychology psychosis (yellow is the colour of creativity according to such believes) and... ehhh... I'll shut up and bounce away now.

Look on the bright side... if you trip and fall forward you'll bounce right back up. YAAAP.

Great job with this, Arwen. I've never heard the S&G version either but, I did know that Simon wrote it.

Perhaps, to torment Kristof, you could work this little red number onto your avatar?? (on the outside of the Wonder Woman outfit of course)

"A simple cotton blend" cracked me up for some reason. Anyway, want revenge? Buy him a red rubber jockstrap.... ;-)

Very funny and the best title for sure! The sweating for an hour line was my fav. Latex allergy sufferers beware!

A sad song about a poor, misunderstood chap who's presents are never truly appreciated =)
Arwen - August 22, 2006 - Report this comment
PMS...hee! Thanks!

AFW...oh boy...I think I've really set myself up for some groaners as far as comments go...; ) Thanks!

Aisling...Thanks a bunch!

Alvin...thanks very much!

K1...oh, funnily enough, I actually ENJOY wearing yellow rubber bras. But red (and blue, as I noted in the parody) just don't do it for me. If only everyone had your tastes...; )

Serafina...thank you!

Kristof...don't be silly, Mister S.A.B! I wouldn't have written this at all if getting that image out of your head was my intention...; )

Rex ...oh see? There IS a silver lining on every cloud!! Thanks!

Rick...hehehehe...tormenting Kristof IS one of my life goals...; )

Merry...you know, I liked that line, too...AND, I considered working a line in along the lines of your suggestion! Great minds think alike, I guess. =) Thanks!

TJC...hee hee! Thanks a ton!

Stuart...oh well I'll go ahead and let you think you're so smart as I remind you of the sleeping location of Mister Bra Giver. ; ) Thanks!

Rick...(again)...oh VERY nice...

Jeff...oh yeah, it's a real tragedy...; ) Thanks!

That is f-ing hil-A-rious! Did you leave him with red pummelled balls? Though I can't believe the bra could have been all *that* ill-fitting. I require photographic evidence.

Make sure you dry it with Bounce. Oh and ummm, ....... mind if I borrow that?

(Decathlon - Event 2) DKTOS (either version) but that was hilarious! If I was the kind of person who votes, you'd get a 555 (DD) from me!

(decath2) see above, and as far as your response is concerned, I'm tipping that his sleeping position may well be underneath Ms Bra Receiver ;-)

My girl blew my socks off by stripping to a green rubber bra and panties. This was three years ago and I have not been the same since. I desperately need a pill to make it go down again...
