The Lyrics

This month, she's been on the covers of Parade, InStyle, and now Allure. She's got plenty of that. Of course I read 'em for the articles! She's got some good stuff to say. Except when she talks about her... husband... So, on a scale of one to a thousand, what's my chances of ever getting her?
One, two, three!

(Good readin'!)
(Good readin'!)
(Good readin'!)
(Good readin'!)

(guitar break)

I was feelin'
so bad.
I aksed why I don't have what Douglas had!

Michael Douglas!
(Douglas!)
Mr. M.D.!
(Douglas!)
Because you got her
it's ailin' me!
(Douglas!)

He said,
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, ha ha!"
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, ha ha!)

Yes, indeed!
So I guess I gotta read!

(Good readin'!)
So come on, I'll get some good readin'!
(Good readin'!)
All I need is readin'!
(Good readin'!)
Get good readin', baby!
(Good readin'!)

(guitar break)

Oh, honey, please!
This ain't right!
(This ain't right!)j
He's so old, your "baby," he looks a fright!
(Looks a fright!)

I said, Catherine!
(Catherine!)
Now, it's for sure!
(It's for sure!)
You are InStyle
and you've got Allure!
(You've got Allure!)

But you say
"No, no, you're not the one for me!"
(No, no, you're not the one for me!)

My heart bleeds!
So all I can do is read!

(Good readin'!)
So come on, I'll get some good readin'!
(Good readin'!)
All I need is readin'!
(Good readin'!)
Get good readin', baby!
(Good readin'!)

(guitar break)

Owwwwwwww!

(instrumental break)

(Good readin'!)
(Good readin'!)
(Good readin'!)
All I get is readin'!
(Good readin'!)
Never get more than readin'!
(Good readin'!)
Readin' early in the mornin'!
(Good readin'!)
Readin' late at night!
(Good readin'!)
Read! Read!
(Good readin'!)
Read read read read read!

(instrumental close)
Yes, I know CZJ looks nothing like K.T. Tunstall; I was just having a little fun with that verse... though Michael Douglas sometimes looks as gnarled as an old cherry tree. Angelina, will you please start eating again, so the guys on this site who have celebrity hopeless crushes on you will start writing tributes to you again, so my celebrity hopeless crush will look less pathetic by comparison?

Douglas is right, little brother: Ha-ha on YOU! Catherine is right: No, no, no, you're not the one for her! At least with Paris, my little skanky princess, I got a shot at nailing my celebrity crush! Especially now that she's out of jail. Of course, that means she could be with my boy, Scooter Libby. Lemme see, where did I put Ann Coulter's phone number?

There's a difference, Nardo: Since I know there's no chance, I can laugh about it -- and cry about it in alternation. Whereas you think you and Paris would actually happen. She ain't THAT dumb. And if "Coultergeist" was interested in me, I would hope I, as you do, had a brother who would dial 911.
