The Lyrics

First parody of this OS here (and check the name spelling :-). OS was written by (ready?) Barry and Robin Gibb of the BeeGees. OS lyrics here. Fairly close MIDI here. The xylophone is the lyrics melody -- starts at about 00:26.

Life is a fight for a space
Now I'm double-parked
In a handicapped place
I wave the tow-truck good-bye
I start to walk
Right now I wish I could fly

The road is dusty and long
I hike my way
Through the mad, frenzied throng
It rains; I'm caught in a squall
I stumble and fall
I can't get to the mall

I am a woman on foot
And I'd do anything
To be back safe in my car
So comfy within
On a ride, I depend
Over and over again
What do I do?

[interlude]

Now I am standing in line
At DMV
To pay off my fine
License suspensions now start
But exercise
Makes for a healthy heart

I'm only six blocks away
From greatest love:
To shop night and day
Al-most trip over a wall
I stumble and fall
But I'm here at the mall!

I am a woman in mall
And I'll buy anything
Just charge it on Mastercard
Then take it back home
Husband's dough, I will spend
Over and over again
What can he do?

I am a woman in mall
And I'm trying on shoes
Bright silver pumps with low heel
Maybe try them in blue
Or in green, or in red
Maybe get spike heels instead?
What do I choose?

I'm a woman in mall
Shopping's just what I do
The shopping mall is my world
I live there within
Shopping right to the end...

[shop till you fade]


A real challenge for us flippered ones to play on the piano -- its key of Eb minor has six flats. Couldn't they just have written it in Em? © 2007 Tommy Turtle. All rights reserved.

Nice work here... I know the OS quite well so I didn't bother to click on the sound clip. There are times when I can relate to some of the things you mentioned. Pacing is top-notch, content is excellent...you get a perfect 5-5-5 from here.

This looks Mall-valous. Simply mall-valous. Who used to say that on SNL? He was one of the regulars playing Ricardo Montalban. A wrath of Khantempt from your hubby there bubby for $pending all his gingos. "Chingos no gingos." as Ricardo may say or Desi would say Loooosie you got some 'splainin' to do. Hate the song, don't care a hoot for Striesand and thanks for making lemonade out of a lemon of an OS. Trip Nicks on this one.

Fiddlegirl: I'll talk! I'll talk! I'll tell you anything you want to know! Just stop playing that song - it's a violation of the Geneva Conventions, anyway (enchanted interrogation techniques;).
          Such a deal! With savings like that, who could refuse -- to thank you for taking time to read, vote, and comment on this oldie? ;-)
