The Lyrics

Ooooh...
Ooooh...

Drip dryin' t'day
Drip dryin' to-day
Oh, I'm just sittin' here'n frustration
Because I'm drip dryin' t'day

I'm not a man
And I've got to sit down
But now I'm finished with my business and I'm lookin' 'round
The tissue for us...
It isn't here
My urge to scream's so overpowering
I'm afraid you'll lose use of your ears

Drip dryin' t'day
Drip dryin' to-day
Oh, I'm just sittin' here'n frustration
Because I'm drip dryin' t'day

Well, chance gave this woman
A pampered life
And well, the times are rare when I think I've had this much strife
It's not a good day
Here I'll remain
And yeah, I think that I'd rather be dead
Than here with this...seat on my skin

Drip dryin' t'day
Drip dryin' to-day
Oh, I'm just sittin' here'n frustration
Because I'm drip dryin' t'day

Now I'm reachin' farther...than I have done
Try'n to steal a roll from the next stall, I'm sure it's got one
I stretched the wrong way
So I'm in pain
Stuck on the toilet and I'm weeping
'Cause I've dislocated my shoulder again

I'm drip dryin' t'day
Drip dryin' to-day
Oh, I've moved on to devastation
And I'm still drip dryin' t'day

Well this really blows
'F I were a man
I'd just walk in and I'd do my thing and the whole time I'd stand
Get back to my job
Have a great day
But I'm a girl, I do it my way
So I'm left here drip dryin' today

Drip dryin' t'day
Drip dryin' to-day
Oh, I'm just sittin' here'n frustration
Because I'm drip dryin' t'day

Drip dryin' t'day
Drip dryin' to-day
Oh, I'm just sittin' here'n frustration
Because I'm drip dryin' t'day

Mmmm...

If there's a better reason for female antipathy towards the male gender, I can't think of one...oh, I forgot: leaving the seat up. This was fun, if a little TMI. ;-) 555

Hmmm... I gotta say that I found your parodies about carrying the one ring (etc) more entertaining than this new subject (?) about sitting on the one ring, so to say. :-)

what Rick said (LOL) and to further paraphrase Elaine Benis..."What? It dripdries?" - funny stuff - 555

Hilarious parody, Arwen, 555 !! Now imagine Paul Simon himself singing this parody ... or maybe something like,

When I look back, a-Pauled at lack of tissue-ized roll
Sit and wonder, I can't leave this stall
So I await evaporation, and it hurts me, son
I just leave some writing on the wall

Very deceptive title, I honestly expected a song about hand washables. Thats why I nearly wet myself laughing when I saw the words. You are number one in my book!
Arwen - October 24, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks all...I have had this one on my unfinished list for probably 2 years...and finally, out of the blue, it just finished itself.

Kristof...hee! thanks a bunch!

Rick...LOL! Fabulous comment!!

AFW...well, aren't you a delight! I have never been accused of being subtle OR sophisticated...; ) Thanks!

John...and here I thought I was being totally straight forward...=) Thanks!

Peter...hehe! Nice...thanks!

Stuart...thanks very much...=)

Johnny...haha! I'm going to try to think of Paul singing that from now on...

Alvin...um...no thanks...I just don't know when I would get it back to you...; ) Thanks a ton!

Rex...ha! That made me laugh probably a little louder than it should have!

Michael...I want the witty comment, dammit! I don't throw myself at you shamelessly for freaking 5s...

PMS...I am happy to hear that you were able to hold it...=) Thanks for your kind words!

Not sure if I know the original here...but I gave it a good read anyway. I liked it though! Whether or not I know the original, I'm gonna award it with a perfect 5-5-5. :)

I look forward to reading more of your nice parodies!!
Arwen - October 24, 2005 - Report this comment
See, everyone...Serafina says it's nice!

I agree with all the above commenters. I plan on voting 5,5,5 as well. On a side note...a certain commentator says it's nice...so what?
Arwen - October 24, 2005 - Report this comment
A. Person...thanks for the compliment...my comment regarding Serafina's comment was just a joke...in response to the "TMI/grossed out" reactions I got from some folks...not a big deal...thanks again!

SOTM - your title's misleading, but it makes for an .... "interesting" surprise when one actually reads the parody. It *almost* makes me feel sorry...but I'm still not coming in there. That sign's on the door for a reason!
Red Ant - November 24, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) What Kristof said, but to add further I'm amazed that you would write such a parody (ie toilet humor). I'm laughing with you though, not AT you since I don't want to get smacked, hehe. I must say that out of all the comments thus far, no one has dared mention one other possible solution to this dilemma, which I did with my parody submitted today. Brilliant substitution for the title and throughout the song. I need welding goggles just to read this. ;-)
Stuart McArthur - November 25, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) - "I'd just walk in and I'd do my thing and the whole time I'd stand Get back to my job Have a great day" - I find that totally insensitive to the male dilemma of where the last drop falls (great day? - yeah sure)

LOL, j/k, great pacing, great idea, very real which makes it funnier and Seinfeldish (even if it hadn't have resonated with that Elaine "square-to-spare" episode) - and it stretches your "character" here in quite a daring way - kudos from me ;-)

SOTM I too was reminded of the Seinfeld episode...LMAO. Great job, all 5's
Claude Prez - November 29, 2005 - Report this comment
The subject matter was a delightful surprise; I thought it would be just another song about laundry as well. Coulda used more graphic detail though. Kidding; fun stuff as is.
Arwen - November 30, 2005 - Report this comment
The funniest thing about all the "I thought this was going to be about laundry" comments is that they imply that you all think I do my own laundry.

Anyway...

Josh...thanks for reading it anyway...=)

Agrimorfee...hehehe...you know, I never thought of that. I'll have to give it a try next time!

Adagio...thank you!

Rick...sweet! I love it when a parody has staying power! Thanks!

wannabemustangjockey...hehehe...it's just as well...I'm far too proud to ever ask for help anyway! Thanks!

Red Ant...look how smart you are! Because I totally WOULD smack you if you were laughing at me. Or, at the very least, throw a very lethal pout your way...=)

Stuart...thanks so much. I really didn't feel like this was that much of a stretch...I paint myself into compromising positions all the time...but alas...this was further than most, I guess. Thanks!

Johnny...hehehe...thanks again.

Tim...well, NOW you tell me...; ) Thanks!

Phil...LOL!

Scathe...you and me both! Thanks very much!

Kristof...um...GROSS! ; ) Thanks!

Dee...thanks a bunch...=)

Claude...well, thanks. I strive to be, if nothing else, delightfully surprising. Okay, if nothing else BESIDES being astoundingly attractive...I strive to be delightfully surprising. I usually have to settle for mildly frightening...but oh well. Thanks!

Five unrelated thoughts:

(1) My mom uses the term "drip dry" the way you use it here, so when I saw the title, I never thought for a second that it was about laundry.

(2) Once I had to wipe with the only paper thing I could find: a copy of the Church News. Ever since then, I've had little doubt I'm destined for Hell.

(3) I, too, have been "sitting on" an idea like this for a couple of years: "Stuck on a Toilet You Can't Get Off Of." I think I might just "let it mellow" a while longer.

(4) Speaking of Seinfeld, thank you for not replacing the original's "Delores" with a soundalike word.

(5) I love this parody.

Ash...LOL! I'm glad you like it. In spite of the fact that apparently the boys on the site are not ready to recognize that pretty girls do, in fact, use the bathroom...I am VERY partial to this one...it kicks ass, dammit. Thanks for agreeing.


And Spaff...in response:

1. It must be a mom term...as of course, I learned it from my own mom. Maybe they teach such things at Enrichment Meeting. I wouldn't know.

2. See now, THAT, is something that I didn't need to hear...for a number of reasons...the least of which being that I already knew you were destine for Hell. Why else do you think I've befriended you? I'd like to see a familiar face when I arrive.

3. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that I yanked a rug out from under your feet. I don't care if, when I really think about it, I realize that if you REALLY loved the idea, you would have pounded out the 'Arwen schooling' parody a long time ago. For now, though...without thinking about that unhappy truth...I feel good about myself.

4. Um, I'm only going to say that you're welcome.

5. I love that you love it. You should realize that, as I listed my thanks this afternoon and noticed that you weren't among them, I was THIS close to administering one HELL of a public flogging in response to YOUR rule change...and I was looking forward to it, too. However...I'll settle for you loving the parody. This time. Thanks...=)

(SOTM) Fabricated conversation: Me: Arwen, I feel your pain Arwen: really? Me: Nope not really. I have no idea what that's like and I'm much happier that way Arwen: (Spills drink in my lap and makes witty comment)
