The Lyrics

My friends said that they'd take me out to eat
The bill's on them, it'd be their treat
So I got dressed up
In my favorite Calvin Klein
And told them
Now I say it's
The perfect feeding time

I didn't care if it was dark or light
I started eating all the meat in sight
But when I ate at Joe's
That fried chicken and white wine
I knew it was wrong
Should've gone elsewhere to dine

I felt bad, I fell down,
I tried hard to think
I couldn't help myself,
I threw up in the sink

I took down a bottle,
The inside was pink
I closed my eyes, I held by breath,
and I, I took a drink

The taste was bad, yeah that part I'll admit
What happened next, kind of shocked me a bit
The pink stuff was coating
My queasy stomach line
So when I eat out now I'll bring
Peptobismol every time

Good job, Tim. Would've liked the last line better if it was "Peptobismol each time", since that would have the same number of syllables as "Love Potion Number Nine". But that's needless nit-picking!

Gotta agree with Johnny, sacrificed some tightness in the pacing for the idea...but you can still make it work within the structure of the who cares? 555

Thanks Alvin, Royce, Johnny and Kristof.

Clearly this is my most common conundrum. It's like the rule of "I before E except after C" when you are trying to learn to spell science and lei...
