The Lyrics

Okay, this is the one that the diehard ABBA fans read and then want to kick seven shades of whatsit out of me. I guess sometimes you just have to live on the edge like that ;^)
There have always been rumours about rivalry between the two girls in the group, and I'm certainly not the first to have fun with the idea. This is my imagining of how that rivalry might have played out. If it were real, which of course I have NO CONCRETE PROOF that it ever was. But when's that ever stopped anyone, bwah ha haaaah... !
And, as always, here's a link to the OS.

FREIDA:
Before the band, I was a famous singer
But when I stood next to her, I felt like a minger*
Thought she was hot, ‘cos she looked so damn Swedish
Kept whining she was refined
And she really did mind
If they stared when she shook her behind...

One of us is uptight
Stealing all the limelight
So over-rated
Well she’s nothing special
If you ask me it’s gone to her head..!


AGNETHA:
One of us is ginger
And a proper whinger
Mad with jealousy
Sorry second best is all she will ever be
Wishing that she looked a bit like me...

It’s not my fault I got all the attention
I played it frigid and cold, unlike some I could mention
I’m fit but shy, never been all that needy
But one of us feels the strain
One of us is a pain
One of us does nothing but complain….

…And just talks in brain farts
Wants to sing my lead parts
Seems she just can’t see
She can sing her heart out -
No-one cares, they’d rather look at ME…..!


FREIDA:
...That one who’s the blonde ditz
Hogging all the high bits
Each and every song!
Says she sings them ‘cause she’s the best, well she is WRONG!
I can sing as high for just as long…
Just as bloody looooonnnnnnnggggggg………..!


AGNETHA:
I could scratch your eyes out…

FREIDA:
I’d kick your big butt….

BOTH:
OH, BRING IT ON!!!

AGNETHA:
One of us is better….

FREIDA:
Really, really better….

BOTH:
And it isn’t you….!
* - UK slang word for 'not very attractive person'

Can't put my finger on the OS - I keep thinking of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aXFwIgIzaU

Excellent stuff (and you've reminded me to finish my "Old Minger" Goldfinger parody) :-)
