The Lyrics

HER: Hey, it weren’t long before it showed
When I found out how early you plateaued
HIM: We’ve come to blows, was overdue
'Cause you’re so twee, you haven’t got a clue

Babe
Can’t stand you babe
Can’t stand you babe

HER: A weighty dud you represent
No money’s earned, talk under wet cement
HIM: I’m stressing so, your dough’s spent on pot
Let us cease enduring, we’ve got diddly squat

Babe
Can’t stand you babe
Can’t stand you babe

HIM: Like a flower with a sting
You’re a pain in where? The ring
HER: And when I’m mad, wish you drowned
I really don’t care, how it’ll go down

HER: So, gotta say you’re always wrong
Together’s where, a place, we don’t belong
HIM: Yeah? Well you bitch, demand and whine
Swear, bet that Hil-ary ain’t as maligned

Babe
Can’t stand you babe
Can’t stand you babe

HIM: Sick of taking your commands
HER: I’ll see you on witness stand
HIM: I loathe how you’re bourgeoisie
HER: I want you in chalk. Dead. See?
Can’t stand you - so impolite
Can’t stand you - you’re never right
Can’t stand you - time for heave-ho
Can’t stand you? How apropos!

Can’t stand you babe

Can’t stand you babe
I hate you babe
Get a job babe
Go get stuffed babe
P O Q babe
Can’t stand you babe...

Total 180 degree reversal from the original. Would make a great video. I've known couples like this.

What did I do? Well, I'll just point to the number 5.

Good and funny! I can imagine Sonny and Cher doing this version on their television show as their marriage broke up. Most excellent work, hobbits. ;D
