The Lyrics

ms. are a comedy princess
you been gettin' red rinses...for so long now
oh...what a weird one
but number one for a reason
the top every season...and still funny now

don't you know she's queen of sitcom joy
repeatin' now on cable
though its slapstick'll always bet
and it seems to me, a fine thing
its a warm romantic fable
and i love to watch it every chance i get

ms. ricardo...oh, you ain't gettin' no younger'
for fame, you feel hunger..yet stay in your home
and ricky ?...oh, ricky...well, he's been out bongo knockin'
his nightclub is rockin'...while lucy's alone

don't you think its cold, he spends his time
amusin' folks that dance and dine
but yet, he wants his wife to stay away
poor lucy sits home, all morose
and cleans and irons his fancy clothes
and she's hopin' she'll be in the show someday

ms. ricardo...your man won't come to his senses
he breaks down your defenses...hands down your fate
he won't be "'splainin' "
although, he claims that he loves you
this fellow thinks that he's above you
thinks that he's above you
thinks that he's above you
by makin' you wait

I was just thinking last night of turning "Desperado" into "Desi..." something to do with Arnaz, but couldn't quite work it out. Then I see this, and my work is done. Five babalus for not just writing this, but for allowing me to be lazier than usual.
