The Lyrics

Dedication to my favorite female singer.
Me and Norah Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We both know that it's wrong,
but it's much too strong
to let it go now.

We meet every day
at the same café
6:30 I know - I know she'll be there.
Holding hands - making all kinds of plans
while the jukebox play our favourite song.

Me and Norah, Norah Jones - Norah Jones - Norah Jones - Norah Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We both know that it's wrong,
but it's much too strong
to let it go now.

We've gotta be extra careful
That we don't build our hopes up too high.
'Cause she's got her own obligations
and so - and so do I...

Me and Norah, Norah Jones - Norah Jones - Norah Jones - Norah Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We both know that it's wrong,
but it's much too strong
to let it go now.

Well it's time for us to be leaving
It hurts so much - it hurts so much inside
Now she'll go her way
And I'll go mine.
Tomorrow we'll meet the same place - the same time.

Me and Norah, Norah Jones - Norah Jones - Norah Jones - Norah Jones
we've got a thing going on.
We've gotta be extra careful.
We can't afford to build our hopes up too high.

I wanna meet,
and talk with you,
at the same place,
the same café,
the same time
And we're gonna hold hands like we used to
We're gonna talk it over, talk it over
We know, they know, and you know and I know that it was wrong
But I'll make it strong...
We've gotta let 'em know now
We've got a thing going on...
...thing going on...
I have recognized this whole song. Only the word "Mrs." were replaced to "Norah".

I think you missed the point. The point is to alter the words of the song you choose to fit the situation. You don't actually have to have a thing goin' on with Norah -- Miss Jones, if you're gonna be nasty -- as long as the end result is funny. To just copy down the original song is like going to war with a dictator just because your dad did. If you like Norah that much, don't you think she deserves better? I'm not a huge fan of hers, but I was able to rewrite the Coasters' hit "Along Came Jones" for her. Even got a rave or two for it.

Sorry, honey, but I agree with what Michael Palochek said: IF YOU WRITE A PARODY, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO CHANGE THE WORDS TO THE SONG. Guess what I changed half of the lyrics to Christina Aguilera's 'Dirrty' in my parody called 'Dirrty, Yankees Style' (not 2006 re-write) and got respect for it. And guess what I can use the song 'Me and Mrs. Jones' and write a parody telling the story of Atlanta Braves Third Baseman Chipper Jones (who I strangely like even though I'm a Yankee fan not a Braves fan) and maybe pull it off. Later.

Uh, correct that - I'm hooked on the Atlanta Braves, too!
