The Lyrics

"I Would Do Anything For Love" is now being used in the Dr. Pepper commercials, and it has nothing to do with the commercial except for the fact that it's being used in it. At least make the song relevent to the commercial and vice versa. Has Meat Loaf sold out?
(spoken)
**Dr. Pepper Legal Clearance Dude**
You did "Bat Out of Hell"
May we borrow your song for the use in our commercials?

**Meat Loaf**
What song do you want from me?

**Dude**
We need your classic song, "I Would Do Anything For Love."

**Meat Loaf**
What's the commercial about?

**Dude**
Nothing in particular.

**Meat Loaf**
Just like a Seinfeld episode?

**Dude**
Yes. Exactly!

**Meat Loaf**
Will you sponsor my next tour?

**Dude**
Yes.

**Meat Loaf**
Also, can you ship me free Dr. Peppers?

**Dude**
Yes! Anything for your song, Mr. Loaf!

**Meat Loaf**
Did you like "Bat Out of Hell II"?

**Dude**
Yes!

**Meat Loaf**
And do love my music?

**Dude**
Yes.
Yes.

**Meat Loaf**
On a hot summer night,
would you offer me some Dr. Pepper when I'm thirsty?

**Dude**
Yes.

**Meat Loaf**
I bet you say that to all the guys who liscense their songs to you! I guess it's in your contract.

**Meat Loaf singing**
It was a hot summer day
and the beach was burning
And I really needed something to drink
When I listened to your ad
I grow more and more thirsty
I thought my throat was dehydrating
And I needed a drink

I was licking my lips
Hoped my lips weren't drying
I was dying such a thirst for a pop
I was lying around the beach like I was dying
And I thought I had cash
But I just spent my final dollar
Spent my final dollar
Spent my final dollar on paste

My house isn't close and I need a drink
But I don't see any free samples around
I'm trying to speak but no matter what I do
I just can't seem to be understood

I said, "Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
Oh it must have been one hundred six degrees
"Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
And I swear it's hot
I was just about to say I'm thirsty
I said, "Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
Oh I must have been unbearably thirsty
"Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
And I swear it's hot
I was just about to say I'm thirsty

But nobody could hear me, so I jumped in the water
And I guess that I'd just taken a sip
Oh the lifeguards all came and gave me free Dr. Pepper
I thanked the dudes
And they told me not to do that a-
Told me not to do that a-
Told me not to do that again

I was licking my lips
Hoped my lips weren't drying
I was dying such a thirst for a pop
I was lying around the beach like I was dying
And I thought I had cash
But I just spent my final dollar on paste

I said, "Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
Oh it must have been one hundred six degrees
"Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
Woulda died a thirst
If it weren't for that can of Dr. Pepper
I said, "Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
Oh it must have cost a dollar ninety-three
"Put Dr. Pepper into my mouth"
Had it not been free
It would cost a dollar and niety-three

Repeat chorus indefinitely.....

This parody makes me thirsty. I think I'll get a six pack of Dr. Pepper, drink a can myself, and give the other five to you.

I hate Dr. Pepper, but I'm always in the mood for some reheated Meat Loaf. Why is this guy not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Some guys are in there based on less!

Thought the commercial was extremely clever and the song was used very appropriately. Afterall, the song itself is strange and corny.... just think about it. A song called "I would do anything for love" on an album titled "bat out of hell." Dr. Pepper seems about right.

Cute and funny! Never saw the commercial, though. But I liked how you did the spoken part at the beginning. One tiny nitpick. Meat Loaf, being a Texan, would never refer to soda as "pop". You ask a Texan for a pop, he'll probably punch you in the nose. (I'm from Texas too.)
