The Lyrics

LOS ANGELES (9/14/03) - Ben Affleck (news) and Jennifer Lopez (news), the most overexposed couple on the planet, were supposed to exchange wedding vows Sunday but instead there was a report that they had ended their tabloid-chronicled storybook romance.
Ben, the two of us won't work no more
Let's split up before we have a war
With no man to call my own
I'll have to grab the phone
And you, my friend will see
You won't be having me
(You won't be having me)

Ben, you're always running here and there
(Here and there)
I think you've been having an affair
(An affair)
If you're ever in a rut
And don't like all those sluts
There's something you should know
You could have had J. Lo
(You could have had J. Lo)

I used to say "us" and "we"
Now it's "I", now it's "me"
(I used to say "us" and "we"
Now it's "I", now it's "me")

Ben, what will the tabloids have to say?
(Have to say)
We'll have to call off our wedding day
(Wedding day)
They will see that we are through
And try to blame me, too
I'm sure they'd think again
If they'd been engaged to Ben
(To Ben)
To Ben
(To Ben)
To Ben

I stumbled upon this parody curious about just what J. Lo would have had to say to Ben if she sang this song. Great work all the way.
