The Lyrics

I always thought this song was a perfect for a spoof. I tried converting it to a spoof on the effects of Cradle Snatching illustrated through an Algebra-style problem.Original LyricsIt was the third of juneOn that summer's dayWell i became a manAt the hands of a girlAlmost twice my ageAnd she came to meJust like a morning sunAnd it wasn't so muchHer words as suchAs the way they were sungIt was the way they were sungDesireeOh, DesireeThere i was foundBy the sweet passion soundOf your loving songTime was right, the night was longRemember, DesireeOh, DesireeSomehow i knewI could only have you'til the morning lightIf only for that single nightSweet Desiree, you make it rightThen came the fourth of juneOn that sleepless nightWell i tossed and I turnedWhile the thought of her burnedUp and down my mindFor she was there and goneWithout one regretBut she continues onLike the words of a songI could not forgetI could not forgetDesireeOh, DesireeThere i was foundBy the sweet passion soundOf your loving songTime was right, the night was longRemember, DesireeOh, DesireeAnd though somehow i knewI could only have youTill the morning lightThe night was long, the time was rightDo you remember Desiree
(To be sung to the tune of Neil DIamond's Desiree)

It was the third of june
On that summer's day
Well I became a man
At the hands of a girl
Who was twice my age

She's forty now
And still having fun
It ain't so much
Her charms as such
As it's her men are young
Yes, the men are young

Desiree
Oh, Desiree
Five years from now
You'll be nine times as old as
This lousy song
How dare you sing along

Remember, Desiree
Oh, Desiree
I'm sure you knew
I was only fifteen
On that fateful night
There's laws that say that just ain't right
You were never very bright

Ten years down the line
Another sleepless night
Well I toss and I turn
While the thought of you burns
Up and down my mind

For you were there and gone
No looking back
But I continue on
With an annoying son
Who's claims he's Jack
My own son Jack

Desiree
Oh, Desiree
Five years from now
You'll be three times as old as
Our poor son
My heart is weak, but my math is strong

Remember, Desiree
Oh, Desiree
I'm sure you knew
I was only fifteen
On that fateful night
There's laws that say that just ain't right
You were never very bright
