The Lyrics

In this post-feminist age, I'm not sure whether this is a satire or a protest song...
Sometimes they're hard on us, the women
Making our lives hell, just 'cause they can
Relive the bad times
Not talk about the good times
Don't know why, I don't understand

Don't think about the s*** you'll give him
It's been this way since time began
He's just some strange being
With no real feeling
Who really cares? He's just a man

Stand on your man
Make sure you squash his ego
Like Oprah on TV, no
End to humiliation
Stand on your man
And show the world you've squashed him
Flatter than a pancake in a pan
Stand on your man

Stand on your man
And show the world you've squashed him
Flatter than a pancake in a paaaaaaan
Stand on your man

I especially like the pancake line

I think normally, I'd try to leave a really clever comment about how I always rock and boys are so stupid and easily heart's just not in it today. Do I always rock? Not so sure...(okay, kidding there...of course I do!) 5s, Phil...=)

In theory, this should count as the parody which has taken the longest to write: the chorus (well, basically that "pancake" line, Royce) was something I came up with when about ten or eleven, so I guess this has been more than a quarter-century in the making :-) Not sure what turned it into a complete parody... probably catching the dying seconds of Oprah or similar...

Yes, sometimes they're hard on us. (Just so they let us get hard with them, amiright?) Good job, Phil, 555 stomps.

Phil, So you held onto that chorus section since you were a mere bit of undercooked pancake batter no doubt watching in wonder as those fully adult males around you had the shine and polish squished and tarnished off their shiny male ego's. I'm trying to think of the female writer who wrote that remark "If they can put a man on the Moon why can't they put them all there?" Not sure if I quoted the line exactly but I think the sentiment is clear....OH, yeah....5s

Blimey, Phil! A controversial but excellent parody. 555

Paul - no, I didn't really have an idea about what the song would *mean* way back when... I just thought it sounded funny. That quote has a bit of a Dorothy Parker feel to it, but I'm not sure
Kristof - I kind of like "controversial", especially in a non-derogatory way (sort of argumentative without being derisive). I've done quite a few like that...

Paul: Another candidate might be Kathy Lette who´s in the habit of saying things like this: "What´s so special about Christmas? Men who think they are God are being born every day."
