The Lyrics

Must. Have. Shoes!
Guess mine is not the first card declined
My cash not the first to go poof
I’m not the first to cry
In front of other customers

You know, I’m just a fool who’s willing
To splurge on some Jimmy Choo heels
Despite the mere fact my
Last credit card maxed itself out
I’m hopelessly addicted to shoes

But now there’s a warrant out
For my imminent arrest
I’m watchin’ my back
Hopelessly addicted to shoes
Hopelessly addicted to shoes
Hopelessly addicted to shoes

My head’s saying, “Babe, can’t afford these.”
Heart’s saying, “Buy them anyway.
They’re one of a kind,
And they’re only made in your size.”
I’m hopelessly addicted to shoes

Despite the warrant that’s out
For my imminent arrest,
I want ‘em real bad
Hopelessly addicted to shoes
Hopelessly addicted to shoes
Hopelessly addicted to shoes

If the shoe fits- wear it... size 5.55 extra G (Good)!!! Hey, maybe you could do another version of this song as "Votelessly Demoted by You" ;-D

That's a good idea, Rob! Glad you enjoyed the parody. =)

Very funny! I'll need to show this to my wife (she's a Nine West and Dansko fan).

It's obvious that you put a lot of sole in this.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the piece. As a shoe lover (and Grease fan), I had a blast writing it. Hopefully, one day, I can afford some shoes from J. Crew; they have some really cute ones (not that I don't already have enough shoes as it is, lol). =)

Hopefully, this 555 will begin the process of heeling

Haha, thanks Callmelennie. =)

The idea for this one is really, really good - but the pacing fit is a size three where you need a size five or at least four - too many original lines left in and simple syllable count inner lining. But just like shoes, you can always go for another pair.

PS. I've got twelve pairs of running shoes by now, wallet's bleeding, I feel your pain! ;-)

Thank you for your constructive feedback, Peter. I always appreciate ideas to help become a better writer. I have a lot of ballet flats and some heels -- those are my shoes of choice, along with sandals (despite a slight allergy to insect stings). How did you do that line break between your feedback and the PS? I've been wondering how do that within the comment section.
Peter Andersson - March 21, 2012 - Report this comment
No, thank you! This one kinda inspired me to come up with one of my own on the very same subject, I was writing all evening yesterday, look for it on the next update, it even has a line about ballet shoes!

As for the line break; those are possible because the web master has decided to allow the HTML break tag within comments, use it once for a new line, twice for an empty line and new paragraph, check "definition and usage" here:

I'll have to check that out. I was thinking about a parody as well, but it got late, and I ended up getting a call to work today, so I didn't get time to write it. Maybe I'll get it done tonight and get it submitted. Can't wait to read your shoe parody!

Argh! I went to that site and tried the tags. Still not working for me. =(
