The Lyrics

Inspired by Chris Bodily's "William Shatner Sings..." series (mostly Britney Spears songs), this is the fourth in a series of Seventies classics that also includes Perry, in character as Chandler Bing of "Friends," singing "Piano Man," "Born to Run" and "Heartache Tonight." Like the Shatner series, Chandler's phrasing wreaks havoc... WITH the pacing, but I'm hoping enough of you liked "Friends" to get the jokes. And, yes, I'm aware not only that Elton sang a song called "Friends," but also that Lisa Kudrow, as Phoebe Buffay, once sang, "Hold me closer, Tony Danza" to Elton's "Tiny Dancer," which has inspired two Amiright parodies so far.
(piano opening)

(Chandler)
It's a little bit funny
this joke that's inside.
It's my insecurities that I'm
trying TO hide.
I don't have much money
but, boy, if I did
maybe I wouldn't seem like
an overgrown kid.

If I could've helped her...

(Ross)
But, then again, NO!

(Chandler)
But she chose me over the man from the
off-OFF-Broadway show!

(Joey)
Hey, the part ain't much
but it's the best I can do!

(Chandler)
I've got this song, Mon.
This one's for you.

And you CAN tell everybody
this IS your song.
It may be quite simple but
now that IT'S done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind
that I put down IN words
how wonderful script is
when you're in my world.

(brief instrumental break)

I sat on the roof.

(Monica)
It's a fire escape.

(Phoebe)
I think he's confused.

(Rachel)
Maybe he should run back the tape.

(Chandler)
But my life's been quite bright
so I wrote this song.

(Monica)
Actually, it was Bernie Taupin
and Elton John.

(Chandler)
So, excuse me forgetting
'bout these things I do.
You see, again I have to
tell Janice... "WE are through!"
Anyway, the thing is...
what I really mean...
You're the most beautiful girl
on the TV screen.

And you CAN tell everybody
this IS your song.
It may be quite simple but
now that IT'S done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind
that I put down IN words
how wonderful script is
when you're in my world.

I hope you don't mind!
I hope YOU don't mind
that I put down IN words...

how wonderful script is
when you're in my world.

(Monica and Chandler kiss)

(Phoebe)
Aw, that's so sweet, you guys!

(Janice walks in and sees it)

Oh...

my...

GAWD!
