The Lyrics

Impatient bride wanna-be's lament!
I've known you for a long, long year
And...it would just seem to appear
That you just won't ask me, my dear
Is it not clear?

Just don't know
what this year will bring
Why don't I get a wedding ring?

Oh...

Bill and Joanie just got hitched last week
Is my future s'posed to look this bleak?
Bill gave Joan a big fat rock
Now, honey, I don't mean to mock
Why don't I get a wedding ring?

I've known you for a long, long year
And...it would just seem to appear
That you just won't ask me, my dear
Is it not clear?

Just don't know
what this year will bring
Why don't I get a wedding ring?

Oh..

We went to Ken and Mary's yesterday
How Ken popped the question
Mary'd say,
That Ken got down on one sweet knee
And to his girl he made his plea
She agreed and they're married today!

I've known you for a long, long year
And...it would just seem to appear
That you just won't ask me, my dear
Is it not clear?
Guess it's not clear....


Oh...

I went to the jewler's just this morn
And I don't mean to toot my lonely horn
But since you won't get me a band
And it's not going as I planned
This ring, my finger, will adorn

I've known you for a long, long year
And...it would just seem to appear
That you just won't ask me, my dear
Is it not clear?

Just don't know
what this year will bring
Why don't I get a wedding ring?

I bought my-self a wedding ring....

(doodoodoodoodoo doodoodoodoodoo doodoodoodoodoo!)

Good stuff, Duffie. Is this just a fun parody, or the voice of experience talking? By the way, on Rick D.'s page you said you were a Bible Thumpin' fundie. For real?

Hi Duffy, I shoulda known. Your writing is so clean, it squeaks. My wife and I are two born-agains, and it's nice to see your parodies here.
