The Lyrics

Seeing my name, and seeing this title, you might think it's about Georgie Bush. Surprise: It's not about his naked ambition. It's about mine.
Well, the first time that I saw her
on a boat that lost lots of life
it was on TV, but sad to see
overshadowed by flick on screen.
The first film so big in which she was a star
was the "Zorro" which did astound.
And she was hot and my throat was dry
and I could not make a sound.

But I'm not gonna get her.
Beat dead horse, it's so lame.
In my heart she will forever reign.
Will not get her, I'm still singing her name
but she's got someone else and that gives me such pain.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

In 2000, Michael Douglas arrived.
My eyes began to turn red.
Pretty soon then, they created new life
though he's old enough to be dead.
and the story I saw on "Access Hollywood"
made me sad to think they were wed.

But I'm not gonna get her.
Beat dead horse, it's so lame.
In my heart she will forever reign.
Will not get her, I'm still singing her name
but she's got someone else and that gives me such pain.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

After nine years, my obsession with she
is intolerable cruelty.
The entrapment of my heart goes on
will all that jazz, you see.
The "Ocean's 12" she made didn't get off the ground
but my terminal heart's so rough.
She's still so pretty and she's selling those phones
but she will not give me no love.

And I'm not gonna get her.
Beat dead horse, it's so lame.
In my heart she will forever reign.
Will not get her, I'm still singing her name
but she's got someone else and that gives me such pain.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

Ba da, da, da-da-da-da.
Ba da da, da, da.

(repeat 'til fade... or until she comes to her senses)

555. I DETEST TOS with a vengence. We have already discussed this, CZJ is mine. Lets see a couple set to her on TOSs " In your wildest dreams " called " In my wildest dreams " or " Dream on " which would not need a different title.

In YOUR dreams, Ant. You can have J-Lo, or Britney, or Xtina. You can even have Zellwegger. Heck, you can even have Liv. Rumor has it she looks like Arwen. (No, I don't mean Ullman.)
