The Lyrics

Haven't seen a certain someone on this site for a while. Maybe if one of us writes one for her, she'll come back.
(instrumental opening)

Baby, heard you talk all night.
But that ain't getting you nowhere.
You told me everything you possibly can
about those guys who got in your hair.

Baby, you can cry all night
but that'll never change the way they made you feel.
Their lies have really piled up outside.
So maybe you should stay inside of here.

They chat you up and you toss them out.
They try to tell you just how much you care.
You're tired of words from them, each one a lout.
And they've been cold to you so long
it makes you want to drink some Mad Elf Beer!

And all I can do
is keep on telling you
they want you
(they want you)
they crave you
(they crave you)
but there ain't no way
you'll let those bums deprave you.
Oy, yikes, egads!
(Yikes, egads, oy!)
'cause two out of three were cads.
Oy, yikes, egads!
(Yikes, egads, oy!)
'cause two out of three were cads

To them, you looked like gold on a sandy beach.
To them, you were an angel on a city street.
I know you're looking for an engine with a love that will bloom
but there ain't no lovin' thrill
lying in their hearts, because there just ain't no room!

They just lie
and try to tell you that they're something they're not.
No matter how they try
they'll never be able
to give you all the
all the stuff you like that I got!

Well, there's quite a few girls that I did swear I loved.
But that was... so many years ago.
And though it was so hard to get 'em out of my heart
they never loved me back
this I know.

And I remember how I met you on a stormy night.
You felt you had to stay on your guard.
And when I pleaded and I begged you not to walk out that door
you said, "Why not?" and headed my way.

And you kept on telling me
you kept on telling me
you kept! on! telling me!

"They want me.
(They want you.)
They crave me.
(They crave you.)
But there ain't no way
I'll let those bums deprave me.
Oh, Mike, egads!
(Yikes, egads, oy!)
'Cause two out of three were cads.

They want me.
(They want you.)
They crave me.
(They crave you.)
But there ain't no way
I'll let those bums deprave me.
Oh, Mike, egads!
(Yikes, egads, oy!)
'Cause two out of three were cads.

Oy, yikes, egads!
(Yikes, egads, oy!)
'cause two out of three were... "

Baby, heard you talk all night.

I'm glad they didn't get nowhere.

Five one-votes? Either somebody really hates me, or Meat Loaf, or Arwen. That's ridiculous, who could hate Arwen? Well, maybe an Orc or two...

Someone has been targeting all my parodies in the same manner. They are clearing their cookies, and voting over and over. . .it's a political nut who hates democrats, homosexuals, blacks. . .and then there is another one doing it who referred to himself as "Pedo Voice". . .they think they are making a point by being stupid. . .but stupid is as stupid does, I'll help out a little with 3 Meatloaf Arwenistic 5s

Seriously? Who would one this? One of the cads, no doubt. I'm sorry, Mister Pacholek...this deserves better. As I usually do, when it comes to the men I date. =)

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. It hasn't been for lack of desire. I WANT to be writing...but I'm stuck. And I should comment more, too...I'm a loser that way lately. I'll try to do better. =)
