The Lyrics

Have you ever had a girlfriend who, a little way into the relationship, tells you that you don't look stylish enough...and then decides it's time for you to have a "makeover"??.......This one's for you...
Girl, I hate these baggy trousers
You got me wearing thongs and moisturiser
Yeah, I'm "renovated" now
My new bed-head haircut don't look right

Yeah, I look ridiculous
You got me lookin' like a German rentboy, now
Oh yeah, so damn ridiculous
And my new eyebrow piercing ain't right
It's really not me
It's really not me
It's really not me

Guys don't really wear sarongs
At least not when they're watching football
Girl, I'm just a laughing stock
This damn beret, it sure don't fit right

Yeah, this T-shirt's really tight
I think it's cutting off my circulation, now
Oh yeah, no more mascara, dear
I'll back down coz I don't want a fight
It's really not me
It's really not me
It's really not me


See? More tatts than Tommy Lee
No longer lookin' like a straight guy
Girl, you've really done it now
No longer can I go out at night!

Yeah, I'm putting my foot down
What's wrong with GAP and Next and River Island, huh??
Oh yeah, I'm buying chinos now
And a nice Jersey T in plain white
That's really more me!
That's really more me!
That's really more me!
That's really more me!

I can relate. I had a girlfriend who felt I didn't dress hip enough, and proceeded to buy me what my friends called, "The Mr. Rogers Outfit" While I'm sure a grey zipup sweater is stylish in some circles, it really didn't work for me. Aside from giving my friends a good laugh, anyway =) 5s, of course.

LOL...a German rentboy! I'm sure it will surprise you all to know that I've never tried to give a boyfriend a makeover. But that could be because if he's not stylish enough...he's not getting to the point of "boyfriend" anyway...; ) 5s, Kristof...lovely!
Kristof - January 10, 2005 - Report this comment're singing to the choir, least favourite look is the "shiny shirt with swear words on it" look, or what I like to call "GQ Tramp", what can you do? Arwen, babe...I could imagine that with your high standards you would always make sure there is no sartorial dyslexia in your guys.....thanx people!

I liked this one too, Kristof. Rest assured, there are some girls out there that want their men to be men. I am soooo not into the Metrosexual thing. Great job here!

I had a girlfriend who liked to try out hair colour paint (term?) on me. We had the same natural colour so she'd realise that was a good way to get a "second opinon (to the mirror?)" on what it would look like on her. And this was back in the 80s when I actually had mullet hair. (ok, you heard me right, now forget you ever heard it at all). Luckily it was the kind that would go off with a shower or two... or three or four... sorry, I can't go on commenting on this, gotta call my shrink right away...

Thankyou guys and gals for the votes and feedback. The discerning women of Amiright (well, Ash and Arwen anyway) don't want metrosexual men (yay!) and us guys are happy about that!! Bye!!!

Kristof, Dahhllinngg--I'm sure you looked just FAHHBUULLOUS as a German RentBoy...yeahhh...right - Seriously (as serious as I can get right now, anyway), great job - 5's...At first I thought this might be about Reggie Harding, a 7 foot tall pro basketball player from the late 50's-early 60's who had a bit of a heroin problem...he robbed a liquor store in his OWN neighborhood wearing one of those tiny "Long Ranger" type masks - the store owner goes, "Why you robbin' me, Reggie?" And Reggie, quick-thinker that he was goes, "It ain't me, man, it ain't me!" and then gets picked up by the police at his own apartment about 25 minutes later...true story...but I don't think Bob Dylan got the title for his song from that episode...

The last woman who tried to make me over recently got married in Massachusetts.
