The Lyrics

Every guy has sang this song to himself at some time. It gives us time to reflect and time to find hope. Enjoy and tell me what you think.
I'm home again on a Saturday
I'm not really sure what to do
None of the girls will go out with me
So I'm sittin' here watching the tube
I said, "Man, I think something is wrong with me"
Man, I thought that I was all right
Perhaps I'm too sweet, and I cannot compete
With jerks who have girls every night

Da da da de de da
da da de de da da da

This is a song for the lonely man
He'll be by himself tonight
He wonders why girls choose insanity
'Stead of a man who is honest and bright

Perhaps it's because I have no spine
I wish I had brav-er-y
If I'm quick with a joke, would you acknowledge I spoke?
And would you start falling for me?
You say "Oh, don't worry you will find someone
Whose love for you will never end
But I'm sorry to say that person ain't me
To me you are still just a friend."

This is a song for the lonely man
He'll be by himself tonight
He wonders why girls choose insanity
'Stead of a man who is honest and bright

I'm sitting hear eating potato chips
And suddenly I grab the phone
And I give it a whirl, and I call up this girl
And maybe I won't be alone
And I wait for Sarah to pick it up
Sweat begins to form on my brow
I'm hoping this girl will go out with me
But I really am wondering "How?"

I won't be alone this next Saturday
And it really gives me a smile
Because I've got a date, now isn't that great
My God it has been such awhile!
And my heart, it feels like a carnival
And we really had quite a blast
And guys take my advice, it's okay to be nice
For nice guys might not finish last!

Da da da de de da
da da de de da da da

This is a song for the lonely man
He'll be by himself tonight
And There will be an end to insanity
When you find the woman that's right!

Wow, I'm surprised how well this was recieved. I originally going to write something about parody writing, but I'm sure that's been done before. You know: "Son can you write me a parody?..." I'm glad you guys liked this.
