The Lyrics

A little shout out to Mr. Pacholek...who placed the OS in my mind yesterday...afterwhich time it would not leave. I had no choice but to write something...=)
I saw this guy across the room
He seemed to be both dark and strong
He checked me out as I walked past
I thought, "With him, I won't go wrong"

So we exchanged numbers of phones
I waited then with much suspense
And when he called, said "Let's do lunch"
I knew good times would soon commence

He was on time, gave me a rose
Better clothes he could not have worn
Luck ebbs and flows; mine always goes
As soon as my con-fi-dence grows

Had unknown violence up my sleeve
My three inch heels were a mistake
Because I tripped within my shoe
My purse flew up, his face to break

And so my weakness was exposed
Not the most graceful girl he's seen
I broke his nose, I broke his nose
And with each bruise, my shame would grow

He said, "I don't want to see you"
And his last words while still awake:
"I'll send the E.R. bill to you"
My bank account he's set to break

I broke his nose, I broke his nose
He's over me now, I suppose

I have to say I'm surprised that people don't know this OS. It's beyond good...far better than the parody...I suggest you all check it out. There will be a quiz...

And now...'s a nice point you make...and I sure don't want to be with a guy who can't appreciate my glorious scent...; ) Thanks...

alvin...well, it IS what I do...=) Life would be too boring if I got along with everyone...Thanks...

Michael...nah...this is what one would get from me being clumsy. Make one too many Orlando jokes, and I'll break your nose on purpose...; ) Thanks for the inspiration...

AFW...thanks a bunch. I want nothing more than to tell a good, it seems my job is done. Thanks!

2nz...yeah yeah...I worried that you might not know it...=( Thanks for stopping by're a trooper. Mmmmwah!

Carol...thank you very much...=)

I KNEW you would know the song...but I still feel a little dorky sending you hints to read my stuff. I mean...I'm self absorbed and love to toot my own horn...but I also like to sit and pout because you haven't found it on your own...; )

Haven't heard the original song much during the past few years (even though I like Billy Joel's music)...but I enjoyed your little parody here. 5-5-5 for the creativity. :)

Thanks so much, Serafina!

Arwen..I like this one; I think it's funny. But uhm,, I think this may actually be a 90's song (I know it was here in the U.S.). Maybe Billy recorded it in '89 or something?? I still vote 5s on it, regardless of when it came out.
Arwen - September 16, 2005 - Report this comment
Dammit, Kyla, you got me. It hit the top 40 in 1990. Nice call...
Arwen - September 16, 2005 - Report this comment
In my defense, however...

(yes, for a split second, I really was going to take the high road and just let her be right...but then I remembered that I never let anything lie)...

...the album release date was 1989. Anyone who bought "Storm Front" would have TOTALLY been enjoying the song well before the 90s were upon us...; )

It was still a good call, though...she DID get me...

Mere words could never do justice to how much I ADORE this! So funny, so brilliant, so ARWEN! And I love the OS too! A triumph, I say!!
Arwen - December 01, 2005 - Report this comment
I always feel triumphant when you drop by, darling girl! I'm so glad that you a) know/love the OS, and b) appreciate the parody.

I really loved it...and was totally flabbergasted that people didn't know the OS. I thought loving Billy Joel's entire discography was a requirement for popularity around this joint. I am glad that I can, at least, always count on you. =)
