Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Boy, I hate this song. I'm always shocked when a piece of crap like this even becomes a hit.
Once my wife was a canvas, just plain, vacant skin
Till you drew those tattoos, that expressed our odd views
Till the colors were in
Then you added some gargoyles,
Every skull was displayed
Then everyone could see
That I married tapestry
And our love would not fade

For yoooooooou decorated my wife
(Illu)strated a girl with a new work of art
And yoooooooou decorated my wife
By putting your mark on every part
You decorated my wife

There's no rhyme and no reason that Lydia could know
Why I had demons inked, made our friends all think
That we were one creepshow
Why had we seen the needle? And all the damage done?
Well, I used to raise kine, and to mark them as mine
I branded them for fun

So yoooooooou decorated my wife
(perfo)rated a girl with a new work of art
And yoooooooou decorated my wife
By putting my mark on every part
You decorated my wife

5's ....... Body-art is a topic just begging for parody. Did one myself awhile back, called "Brand Me ( Scar Me Fine, Girl ! )":

I'm not particularly fond of the song either. Thanks for giving us new lyrics instead. I really like the title. :D 5's

The best Kenny Rogers solo was "Through The Years" I don't know how this one became a hit? A vast improvment over the original! =)

Excellent parody, Rick. I didn't realize that "Lydia the Tatooed Lady" had a husband.
