The Lyrics

following on from Kristof's despair at do-good clothing-label police the other day
Body, wanna feel your body
body, such a thrill, your body
Body, wanna touch your body
body, it's too much, your body
Body, check it out, your body
body, don't you doubt your body
Body, working out your body
body, checking out your body

(listen here)

Every woman's fantasy
a shallow shallow man
When I date I try to be
as shallow as I can
Point out other women
"You should be like her!"
"When you're shopping, is it cool
to chat up your sis-ter?"
Sure I do want children
but there's a time and place
Maybe now is that time
so let's have sex in case

Hey, Hey, hey-hey-hey

Shallow Shallow Man
I'm an extreme-
ly shallow man
Shallow Shallow Man
I am extremely shallow

Shallow Shallow Man
I'm an extreme-
ly shallow man
Shallow Shallow Man
I am extremely shallow

Body, it's so hot, your body
Body, love to pop your body
Body, love to please your body
Body, can't I tease your body
Body, I adore your body
Body, I'll explore your body
Body, made by God, your body
Body, it's so hot, your body

You can tell I'm shallow
it's in the way I dress
it's in the car I'm driving
it's in my bulging pecs
it's in the way my hair looks
like twigs all sprayed and set
it's how I cup my hands when
I light my cigarette
Call me Mister Funky
compliment my tan
You can best believe that
I'm a shallow man

Hey, Hey, hey-hey-hey

Shallow Shallow Man
I'm an extreme-
ly shallow man
Shallow Shallow Man
I am extremely shallow

Shallow Shallow Man
I'm an extreme-
ly shallow man
Shallow Shallow Man
I am extremely shallow

I am the epitome
OF a shallow man
Wave a little honey
I'll eat it if I can
Jogging in the morning
like a tennis pro
When I jog past your place
I jog a little slow
Ask me in for coffee
I'm all teeth and smiles
coz I'm tipping I'll be
there for quite a while

Hey, Hey, hey-hey-hey

Shallow Shallow Man
I'm an extreme-
ly shallow man
Shallow Shallow Man
I am extremely shallow

Shallow Shallow Man
I'm an extreme-
ly shallow man
Shallow Shallow Man
I am extremely shallow

Thanks, Kristof - we are on a wavelength

Tim - thanks for reading it twice - an honour!
Ash - knew it was coming - just wondering about the form it would take - hee hee

(Dec2) What did Kermit the Frog think about the singer of this song? "Knee-Deep!"
Matthias - February 10, 2008 - Report this comment
More about Pride than Nightlife, but there's always that guy at the club so I'll give it to you there...

(Dec2) I also felt a bit of a stretch here for nightlife. . .very funny though and I have no room to speak on stretching themes with "Rough Stuff" so all cheers from me.

(Dec 2.0) Like what has been said, a bit of a stretch for the topic. Still very good, nonetheless. 555

(DEC 2.9) See above. A mouldy...I mean, GOLDEN oldie, Stu....not exactly a night life parody, but huge fun...."When I jog past your place/ I jog a little slow" hehehe
Phil Alexander - February 13, 2008 - Report this comment
Like I can complain about this being a bit of a stretch for "night life"? The funniest I've read for a while, and love the way the first verse starts: "Every woman's fantasy/ a shallow shallow man/ When I date I try to be/ as shallow as I can"
Arwen - February 13, 2008 - Report this comment
Decathlon...Well, I've been calling you "Mister Funky" for years now, Stu...good to know I finally have your approval. I loved this, by the way...=)
Jeff Reuben - February 13, 2008 - Report this comment
LOL, I thought this was hilarious! I've had ideas for similarly themed songs, you did this very well!
