The Lyrics

A sequel to Spaff's "The Wreck of Ben Affleck and J-Lo," arguably the best parody in Amiright history? Why not, "Godfather II" seemed to work.
Livin' in Boston
all that it's costin'.
All o' those tourists on Freedom Trail.
Feelin' so groovy
makin' new movie.
Smell that "Gigli," a gigantic fail.

Wastin' away again in Matt-and-Bennyville
searchin' for my lost selfin'-respect.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
but I know it can't be me, Affleck.

I don't know the reason
I watch baseball season
with nothing to show but Octobers so blue.
And I'm saying, "Hello"
to my ex-girl, J-Lo.
How I got there, I haven't a clue.

Wastin' away again in Matt-and-Bennyville
searchin' for my lost selfin'-respect.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame.
Now I think I should pause and reflect.

(instrumental break)

We made "Good Will Hunting"
and Nomar ain't bunting.
"Dogma" flopped, had to cruise on back home.
But that new Maxim Blender
will help me remember
why Matt left me, filming a new "Bourne" in Rome.

Wastin' away again in Matt-and-Bennyville
searchin' for my lost selfin'-respect.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
but I know it must be me, Affleck.

Yes, and... some people claim that there's a woman to blame
but I know it must be me, Affleck.
I tried to work out a song built around "my ex-wife J-Lo, how I got there, I haven't a clue," but this was the best I could do.
