The Lyrics

Remember the 50's sitcom, "I Love Lucy", with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz? Ricky always to used to ask, "Lucy, where are my 'payamas'?", but it looks to me like he's got bigger problems than that...{bracketed} lyrics at the end are sung to the instrumentals that go out to the fade.
[instrumental intro]

Ooh-ooh, ooh-hoo, Babaloo
Married Lucy, and now I am screwed
Every night at the club; hangs around
Ooh-ooh, Lucy, treats me like a clown

My wife don't like sex, I am in denial
she's such a bitch, yeah, it's been a while
She sits around all day on her duff
Tells everybody that she's got it rough

Ooh-ooh,ooh-hoo, what to do?
I said to her, "Get off your caboose"
And my dinner ain't ready on time
Get no food, I just hear Lucy whine

She always tells me that I'm just not fair
That tw*t does nothing; sits on derriere
The breakfast dishes are still in the sink
That lazy woman might drive me to drink

Ooh-ooh,ooh-hoo, now I smell poo
Little Ricky just took a doo-doo
"Where is Lucy?", I ask; Fred tells me
"She's shacked up with some hunky marine"

[instrumental break]


Ooh-ooh,ooh-hoo, I think that's screwed
Cause it seems she's in bed with some dude
Had enough; it's more than I can stand
to find Lucy in bed with some man

What to say? I'm about to go wild
Tw*t's with some sailor, why am I not surprised?
Each night I starve while I hear Lucy whine
No steak is served; on baloney I dine

Ooh-ooh,ooh-hoo, Babaloo
Dirty dishes; she never vacuums
She's so nasty; all she does is nag
I'm packing, to leave that old hag

She's nagging...
and shacking...
I'm packing...
to extract me...
Got...to...get...away...

[to instrumentals out to fade]

{I say...get away...that's what I say, get away}
{Oy vey...I complain...does me no good, anyway...}
{away...today...before I blow out my brains...}
{A shame...that dame...do I need further explain?...}

Paul Robinson - October 23, 2008 - Report this comment

I really enjoyed your parody so much! Yeah, I used to watch "I Love Lucy" on TV. It's soooooo hilarious! My BF has lots of DVD's of "I Love Lucy". This song also reminds me of Peggy Bundy, the lazy housewife of Married...With Children. But, your lyrics are very well written, very creative, and fluently paced. I also enjoyed parodies relating to TV characters singing the song. I also love the OS, too! 555!!!

Christie Marie M - Well, thank you most kindly! I'm glad you got a kick out of my piece. Yes, I'm very fond of and quite well acquainted with the OS (and the OMD group, as well...a very good and under-appreciated band). You seem to like a lot of the same sort of parodies that I tend to write (and like as well). I always try to do something special lyrically with my parodies...and of course I'm thrilled when someone else recognizes and enjoys my stuff. Pacing has GOT to work or it's just not real to me, and it has to be "sing-able" as well...I do a voice-over recording of just about everything I write, and if it doesn't fit or work when I do that it's just not finished. Sometimes the words seem to work on paper and running them through your head, but when you try to sing them your tongue just can't get from "Word/syllable A" to "Word/syllable B"...the transition just can't be made within the pacing, pronounciation, emphasis and the musical notes. As you can probably tell, I also love to share my passion for writing this stuff and the enjoyment I get out of doing it...SAY...I'm thinking...thinking...OK, I seem to recall reading a piece a couple weeks ago done to CSN's "Suite; Judy Blue Eyes" and it occurs to me that might have been yours. That's a very tricky OS to work with and that was a very, very well done piece. OK...it's coming back to me..."Crash..." and then it was about the current financial meltdown. I intended to try and do a voice-over of it, but I've been very busy at work lately and haven't done any voice-over stuff in a couple months now. Yeah, I gush and go on. Anyway, I really appreciate your comments here. Gotta get back to work...Thanks!

...and of course, my old memory was wrong about the authorship of that CSN piece. Apologies for that to both you and the actual author, Melanie Lee. Yeah, sometimes I get carried away ~ ~ ~
