The Lyrics

Somehow I have a hard time buying it when gorgeous women marry men like Donald Trump for "love."
The price is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna pout; he'll buy me one
I'll have a diamond/pearl
Bracelet and earrings like that
Whoa-oh!

So many things I do
That might make me look bad
Judge me all you want to
He'll still buy things for me

A trip around the world
And a brand new London flat
Whoa-oh!

The price is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna pout; he'll buy me one
Buy me one
Buy me one

Every girl wants to
Control her man
Write down what you hear
And from me you'll learn

I give my lip a curl
He gives in just like that
Whoa-oh!

The price is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna pout; he'll buy me one
Buy me one
Buy me one

Every girl wants to
Have a rich man
Just tickle his ear
And you'll have your turn

Ugly? Give him a whirl!
His wallet makes up for that
Whoa-oh!

The price is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna pout; he'll buy me one

(Repeat & fade to end)

Can I get an amen? Hoo Hoo!

I for one have never pouted to get my way!

And I very nearly said that with a straight face...

For some reason I am picturing Tech Support Fred as a rich man... ;-) Sparkly 5's!!

I would rather have a blond hunk with no money. Great lyrics.
Arwen - December 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Ash...hehehe...I KNOW you know what I'm talking about...hehehe...nice try on the never pouted bit, though...

Tim...I don't think Tech Support Fred could use even his money to get a girl...

2Eagle...um...I agree with you for the most part...but I can't deny that I like to be pampered...

Very good, but everytime I read the "lip-curl" line, I think Billy Idol (not the desired effect. Unless you're looking to intimidate him into buying you one =) Actually, I think this is more my problem, having the Billy Idol sneer stuck in my mind all day.

Jeff...I love you! You ALWAYS make me laugh out loud. Luckily I am all by myself in the office today...so I can giggle anytime I want to!

Great job, Arwen! I enjoyed the brilliant rhyming to the original song's corresponding words. I'm giving you a 5 in each category. :)

Oh thank you, Serafina!!

fantastic Arwen - "So many things I do, That might make me look bad" I think you're being a bit harsh on yourself here - a little self-confidence wouldn't go astray :-)

Only rools pay fetail. Heh heh. Cough cough. Oh yeah, 5-5-5, great parody, Arwen.

alvin...awww! Well, as long as you said it, then it doesn't mean that I'm conceited when I believe it...=) Thanks! Stuart...thanks for dropping in. Your kind words, however, do not excuse your blatant non-laugh at my Foreigner picture. You know what I'm talking about. Hmph. Johnny...where you been all day? =) Thanks!!

Um, excuse me...(pausing for my smugness to come into full bloom).....ex-CUSE me, sweetheart, but I think you'll find, if you take a teeny weeny 'nuther scroll through, that there is a blatant LOL!! where you claim a blatant NON-LOL!! to be!!! (hmm? uh huh hmm? uh huh).....unless I'm mistaken AND I NEVER EVER AM!!! ( * indignant turn on heel, with arms folded, waiting for pathetic crawling-back apology * )
Arwen - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Um...yeah...

*crawling*
*apologizing*
*pouting, and thus eliminating ANY chance you have of staying mad*

Sorry, Sugar!

I'll decide my OWN emotional responses thankyou very much (totally got the upper hand now) - that's ONE thing "Reclaim The Pants" has taught me

This parody is a great alternative to Hey Big Spender.
The Real Tony - December 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Arwen, I had to come see what you write since you were so nasty about my comments on another parody. This is pretty good, I must admit, but not really worth such high scores.
Ashkicksass - December 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh NO YOU DIDN'T Tony! So if Arwen's aren't worth such high scores, why don't you show us some of YOUR parodies?
Arwen - December 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh. My. Hell.

Making fun of a misspelled word isn't nasty, Tony. It's a joke. Lighthearted and honestly how I treat everyone around here. The folks on the site can assure you that Ashkicksass is my partner in crime, my better half, the Starsky to my Hutch...and I make fun of her all the time. Get a grip, mister. You don't know HELL from nasty...

And...if it's pretty good, what would you give it? I noticed I still have all 5s...so...if you're so intent on voting how you feel, go ahead and give me your vote. I'd LOVE for you to share it.

I'd also like, as Ash said, a link to your parody author's page. Right now.

okay, I've gotta go to the toilet, so noone say anything 'til I get back, okay?
Arwen - December 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Stuart, if you NEVER say that to me again, it will be too soon. The last thing I need to be picturing is you sitting on the toilet! Sheesh. How about:

I'm going to go write a brilliant sonnet about Arwen's beauty.

It may not be true...but at least it would a lovely mental image...

just a colloquialism, honey - highly-evolved homosapiens like myself no longer have need for such base amenities
