The Lyrics

Women somehow seem to find out early
all the one-percenters and the tricks
they seem to have blokes by the short and curlies
in matters where their blokes and them conflict

My oh my, your team has made the play-offs
for the first time since no-one can recollect
The same day your wife's niece is getting married
Nervously you ask for a rain-check.....

She replies.....
"You decide!"
and her smile
is a thin disguise!
Boy, by now, you should realize....
there aint no way around that "You decide!"

The next year your mate's son is on the draft list
he gets picked up at twelve by Santa Fe
He bulks up and impresses the selectors
gets MVP in half the games he plays

Trophy night you've scored yourself a ticket
You've backed your boy one hundred on the nose
the same night your wife's girlfriend's graduating
You ask her if she minds if you don't go....

She replies.....
"You decide!"
and her smile
is a thin disguise!
Boy, by now, you should realize....
there aint no way around that "You decide!"

Minor pacing errors, but a really insightful, funny piece..oh go on, decide whether you want these 5s..
Stuart McArthur - October 14, 2004 - Report this comment
thanks Kristof - it paced properly for me - maybe I've misremembered the original..........Chucky G told me to resubmit this and delete the first submission because I misspelt my own name the first time, ("a" instead of "A") and it didn't go under my authorship - sorry to anyone reading it a second time

(ABC-Y) Was it difficult for you to decide what to submit for this round? I think you made a good decision, but you decide, ok?

The Big Guy decided a long time ago that women are stuck with US.

thanks Guy, Leo, Adagio, Luke, Agri, Rick, Johnny and Jeff

understandable Jeff, since this was my very first parody submission :-)
Phil Alexander - February 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Ha... I was thinking exactly what Jeff wrote. This was a great one to start with, Stuart.
2nz - February 13, 2005 - Report this comment
I gotta either present my DKTOS, or make a judgement just on the lyrics and then give you 555 out of peer pressure. I can't decide (pause for utter silence and some cricket sounds)... so I'll just do both and call it even.
