The Lyrics

I'm told that "How did you get so ugly overnight" is one of the best Country song titles ever... but I couldn't find the OS anywhere, so I decided to write my own
Take my hand, we'll go upstairs
T'was a good night on the pull
You're the perfect girl for me
'Cause we're both so beautiful

When I wake up by your side
By the early morning light
And I'm wond'ring how the hell
You got so ugly overnight

Don't know where the make-up's gone
I was scared that you'd been shot
With a double-barrelled shotgun
'Cause last night, you looked so hot

When my hangover has gone
And my brain's in gear, I might
Just about work out how you
Got so damn ugly overnight

Like a feminine King Kong
Something out of Abu Graibh
Now some devil-demon horror
But last night you were a babe

Sneak away, and I'll be gone
But you wake, and shriek with fright
'Cause you can't believe that I
Got so ugly overnight

So you're asking, how did I
Get so ugly overnight?

Lemme guess: Makeup by Jack Daniels. But you sure made up for it with this parody. Five doses at the clinic.

could be a real country western tune

Do you remember seeing the TV commercial where Fabio turnes into an old man? Stuff happens.

More Ann Coulter!

I see we both picked an ugly theme, today...right on the money, here

those beer-goggles work a treat don't they? - too bad reality has to stick its big ugly Abu Graibhish nose in, Phil (sigh) - 555

I, too, liked the Abu Graigh metaphor. Is this the first time Abu Graibh has been rhymed with babe?
Phil Alexander - March 09, 2007 - Report this comment
It seems to be, JJ... which may just be because in theory they don't actually rhyme:
Thanks everyone - will go and have a look, AFW

Loved the tit for tat at the end. At first thought it was just another female bashing parody, but you saved it at the end. Good for you!

Thanks, pogo - all the best songs have a twist in the tail, don't you think? ;-) After its first performance, this one has become a regular - it always seems to go down well
