The Lyrics

Finally some payback...and's Billy Joel...=)
Got a thing for a good boy
He lives on the east coast
I don't usually pine for one so far away
Don't know just what it is
But of his love I know I'd boast
Say I voted for Kerry, for his heart to sway

Oh, I dream of him all day at work and then all night
Would he choose me in spite of the red state I'm from?
I don't care about anything but to be Mike's wife
Zeta-Jones has her own lifeMichael, move on!

You never know what girls are wanting when they say "romance"
(You never know what they are)
A Yankees game would work out well in this circumstance
(A Yankees game)
For him I long
It can't be wrong!
And I've made up my mind
It's Michael this time!

Gotta ad-mit that we've never met, don't know his face
My "right" upbringing lends me to somebody else
And I wonder if I should give up on this vain chase
He can't hide, deep inside, he's in love with an elf

Always thought bein' single and free would be alright
In the past it has been in my nature to roam
But now all I can say is I want to be Mike's wife
Changed my mind "bout the free lifeMichael's the one

And I just know that being with him would my life enhance
(Yes, I just know that it would)
I wonder how he feels when girls make the first advance
(The first advance)
Feelin' so strong
Want to belong
I wonder if he'd mind
If we com-bined time

I don't want to be anything now more than Mike's wife
Wanna live the Jersey lifemake us a home!

(Visualize myself as Mike's wife)
(Visualize myself as Mike's wife)
(Visualize myself as Mike's wife)
(Visualize myself as Mike's wife)

Talk about calling the bet and then raising the stakes over the top! :-) Another stunning parody, but shouldn't it have been posted on Sadie Hawkins day?

Good morning, Arwen!! Nice to see you again. :) What's up? Me, I'm doin' quite well; I had a FABULOUS birthday celebration ten days ago....I hope all is well with you!

Anyway I haven't heard the original song in years, but I did listen to a lot of Billy Joel's music growing up, so I remember this one fairly well. And I enjoyed the parody, so I'm gonna give it my usual 5-5-5! Keep up the good work! =)

*sound of a thousand male hearts breaking*....Mr P is gonna explode when he reads this. Vin Diesel and Orlando Bloom are going to drive over a cliff Thelma and Louise style. Catherine Zeta Jones is going to develop a drink problem. Congratulations (I think)...and a brilliant bit of writing to boot. 555

Oh fine, marry him. Then divorce him and he'll be Michael Paycheckless. (Hey, they can't all be gems). 555

Hey there...excellent work! Like Serafina (who I must wish a happy belated birthday to), I vaguely remember TOS, but I do believe I've heard it, so I will vote 5-5-5.

Why do there have to be some triple-ONE votes among a sea of perfect triple-FIVE votes? I'm so sick of triple one voters, I'd like to moider those creeps! >:( This is NOT worthy of ones. However, if you don't like a parody, you should still have the courtesy to respect the pacing, for petes sake!

Sorry about the rant, Arwen. Hopefully my 5-5-5 vote will help counterbalance the undeserved votes.

Well, come on, Pacholek, what do you say to Arwen's proposal: is it yes or no? This is one "celebrity marriage" I just gotta see!
Arwen - July 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Stuart...Hee! Thanks very much...=)

Rex...mostly, if I'm going to participate in something, I aim to win...hehehe. Thanks!

Jeff...well, I'm getting up there too, you know...ever since I hit the big three-oh I've tried to avoid the teenagers...; ) Thanks!

Serafina...good to know that you grew up listening to Billy...only good things can come from that! And happy belated birthday!

Kristof...LOL! I'm especially fond of the Thelma and Louise imagine...although if Misters Diesel and Bloom DID somehow end up in a car together, and managed to drive it off a have to know that I would cease to exist. So, let's all pray that they take this a little better than you're predicting. Thanks!

Rick...Paycheckless...hehehe...nice. Thanks!

alvin...but of course! Thanks!

Ferragamo...thanks very much!

Dubya Tee Eff...rant on, buddy! And thanks!!

AFW...thank you...I appreciate it!

Lionel...don't be can have a crush on Michael, too...; )

Johnny...I've tried...he's screening his a "funk," he says...

Not A Moron From New Jersey...I think I scared him away. It happens to the best of 'em when you bring up the "M" word...*sigh.* Thanks anyway, for stopping by!

Honey, I'm home! Sorry I was late, but you know how it is here in New Jersey, there was SO much traffic! As strictly a parody, this was very good, and you certainly picked the right guy in that respect as well. As a proposal... I've been wondering just how far to take this online "relationship." Go too far, and I look like a stalker. Not far enough, and it might inspire a stalker. But to make it really happen? Everything I've done so far with "real women" has flopped miserably... Chicago is roughly a midpoint, maybe we could meet there and work something out. And relocation, while it would be hard, is not out of the question, but I gotta be close to something resembling big-league baseball (which, in your case, would be Denver). So... In realistic terms, the worst that could happen is, we could say it was a bad idea. Then you'd write one about how I turned out to be a bust, and I'd have to live with it. You'd still be fabulous, up to your pretty little neck in prospects; and me, at least I'd know. Hopefully, I'd be enough of a gentleman to NOT write about it, or to at least make it look like it was my fault (which would probably be believable). Kristof: Vin and Orlando driving off a cliff together? Wait, in order for this thing between Arwen and me to work out, I'd better not finish that thought. As for Catherine drinking, if living with Gordon Gekko (a.k.a. the Wrinkle Man) hasn't driven her to it, nothing will. Rick C: If she's only after my money, this won't last long. Stay tuned, everyone. Amiright's own little soap opera continues -- without any evil twin, hopefully.

Just saw some interesting T-shirts. One said, "I didn't ask to be a Princess, but if the crown fits..." Another: "I'm not a Princess. My needs are more along the lines of a Queen's." Another, with a list of 18 signs you might be a video game addict, I met only 3 of the criteria, but there was one that could be counted as a 4th: "You have met your soul mate, and she is a Princess whose land needs rescuing." I think that's a reference to "The Legend of Zelda," but it's been so long since I seriously fed my vidgame addiction that I don't know. Somehow, I doubt that, if Arwen actually became Mrs. Pacholek, she would put up with such twaddle.

While I'd be thrilled to be a bridesmaid, I must say that I flat out refuse to wear taffeta. Or a hoop skirt. I'm sorry, but those are my conditions. Fabulous job here darling girl!!
Arwen - July 31, 2006 - Report this comment
Michael...=) I'm glad that you liked it...but one thing you should know about me is that I don't even know what I'm doing next WEEK...let alone for the rest of my let's go ahead and not make too many plans at once. I'll most likely start crying and hide under by bed. ; )

Mr. Pacholek...on the t-shirts...#2 is CLEARLY more my style, as yes, I generally refer to myself as a Queen. No, seriously...I do. On a daily basis. It kind of annoys the folks in the office...but on the other hand, I'm pretty sure that they all worship me, so they can't really say anything to contradict my claims.

Ash...well then, the wedding's off! Because I INSIST upon both taffeta (in hot pink) AND hoop skirts...for ALL of my bridesmaids!! So, thanks for ruining my life. And also, for the compliment on the parody.

Start crying and hide under the bed? That's definitely not a turn-on. Well, at least you don't do that during thunderstorms, like a certain pooch I could mention. Anyway, I'm starting to think of that scene in "Casablanca." Yvonne: "Where were you last night?" Rick: "That's so far back, I can't remember." Yvonne: "Will I see you tonight?" Rick: "I never make plans that far ahead." As for you and Ash: It is the duty of every bride-to-be to make her bridesmaids hate their gowns, but go easy on Ash, she's OK people. The question that has me worried is, what do you want the GROOM to wear? I don't care what colors are "in" in Middle Earth, my tux is going to be black. You know what David Frost says: "The bride wears white to symbolize purity, and the groom wears black." As I've said before... Stay tuned, everyone. This could become a multi-song saga.

Fast and Furious...hey, I'm sorry about that. Sometimes it's easier just to make the turn and race through your brain than it is to wait for the light.
