The Lyrics

Poor ol' Sylvia has now become totally delusional and her loving brother is concerned....
Sylvia's Brother says "Sylvia's dizzy"
"Too dizzy to live on her own"
Sylvia's Brother says "Sylvie's relyin'"
"On meetin' Sylvester Stallone"
Sylvia's Brother says "Sylvie's unhappy"
"Sylvester hung up when she phoned"

And the high-priced head shrink says "40 bucks more for the next 3 minutes"
"You know, Mr. Avery, should this fetish re-occur"
"I'll have to keep her a while"
"Please Mr. Avery, it's madness in over-supply"

Sylvia's Brother says "Sylvia's crackin'"
"She's cravin' Sly's marriage bouquet"
Sylvia's Brother says "Sylvia's carryin'"
"A heartache 'round in a bad way"
Sylvia's Brother says "Can't you do somethin'"
"So her life won't fritter away"

And the high-priced head shrink says "40 bucks more for the next 3 minutes"
"You know, Mr. Avery, should this fetish re-occur"
"I'll have to keep her a while"
"Please Mr. Avery, it's madness in over-supply"

Sylvia's Brother says "Sylvia's worryin'"
"She's settlin' down for Michael Caine"
Sylvia's Brother says "Pick a new fella"
"cause Sylvie, you're goin' insane"
And Sylvia's Brother says "it's so appallin'"
"She wants to live in the fast lane"

And the high-priced head shrink says "40 bucks more for the next 3 minutes"
"You know, Mr. Avery, should this fetish re-occur"
"I'll have to keep her a while"
"Please Mr. Avery, it's madness in over-supply"

Keep her from Sly

FADE
Please
Keep her from Sly

I think this deserves higher votes! The high priced shrink line is great, as well as "keep her from Sly"
