The Lyrics

Something us guys just hate to hear...
When I want to go out, I might ask you to drive
You can let me cut in while you're waiting in line
And I know all your friends say how good we could be
I think that you're nice but you're more like a brother to me

I'm taking advantage, that's what people think
When I don't have the cash, you can buy me a drink
You'll hold onto my purse when I have to go pee
Yeah I know that it's cute, but you're more like a brother to me

Ooooh, with my puppy dog eyes, and a peck on the cheek
I can get what I need
Ooooh, and you'll never give up, and you'll never give in
Cause you're such a good seed

And I'll flash you a smile in my new formal gown
And I'll make you look good on a night on the town
But if you want some action, I'll just make you frown
You can grumble all night, but you're still like a brother to me

Ooooh, with my puppy dog eyes, and a peck on the cheek
I can get what I need
Ooooh, and you'll never give up, and you'll never give in
Cause you're such a good seed

When I find out my boyfriend is cheatin and lyin
You will always be there with a shoulder to cry on
And I'll tell you you're probably too good to me
But if you ask me out, I will just make you pout
Cause you're more like a brother to me

This has never happened to me. Well, once, but it was actually my sister so it doesn't count. Just kidding; well done.

Yes, some of the saddest words of tongue and pen...5's, Mr. Reuben, for a solid-pegging of a sad phenomena...

Billy, she should at least get to know you a bit first before using that line.

Loved the parody! Three fives! Even worse is when she tells him he's "more like a big sister."

Grrrreat stuff, Jeffaroo. But it bugs me more when they say I'm more like a sister.

Spaff, you need to stop wearing those skirts.

I don't think it's the skirts: reckon he just can't kick the habit (the nun's habit, that is ;-))

(SOTM) There's a song by Megadeth (1000 times goodbye) who has a full phone it's-over-now conversation and is ending with the female saying those words to Dave and with him quite brutally hanging up in her ear. I'll recommended if you're looking for more brutal riffs to accompany those feelings. :-)

I love this just as much, if not more, the second go-round. Painfully, hilariously true, Jeffaroo.

But enough about you - let's talk about me. I just realized that I stole Olvan's joke. Sorry, Mr. Terrible. As for Philbo's reply - How much sincerity would there be in my denial? Nun.

OMG Jeff, I feel the pain shine through. Thought it was great, except for the reality that bit me on the ass as I was reading it. 5's for you simply having been there and having to go through it. I'm back off to the therapist again now, thanks to this! LOL!

(SOTM) Very good one, Jeff.
neminem - December 30, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Perhaps it's just because this is the first one I came across that I actually knew the original at all well... but I'm really liking this one. Or maybe it's because I totally identify with the problem being sung about (though I suppose that's probably pretty universal among straight guys). In any event, 5s all around, and good luck.

Whenever they use that excuse, I take it as a cue to punch their arm, hang their trainer bras from the school flag pole and dribble on their foreheads while they're sleeping. Funny work, Jeff! 555

Damn... I know I've been here before and I'd swear I commented while I was... but anyway, great, great parody. I'm not sure if I"m echoing any of the above comments, but it's even worse when it's a group of girls who 'just wanna be friends'. Oh, sure, you look like a pimp in all the photos but after a certain time frame, they should really draw straws to see who's gonna take one for the team that night. Anyway again, excellent parody, Jeff.
