The Lyrics

Fitin’ In My Chair

There was once a time
Many years ago…

Once, I used to run everyday
Dine on healthy food
And I used to look
So buff…so buff

Wifey now cooks diner all day
Meatballs soaked in grease
And I never say,
“Enough…enough”

She says, "You’ve got to finish what’s on your plate
Then take another helping
And then seven or eight”
I know she loves me but I’ve gained some weight
And now– I’m feeling irate

Ohh…I’m in despair
No…oo…Fitin’ in my chair
Cheeks are sore and I’m hurtin’ down there
More than I can bear

Need to get the band back on tour
Know the fans will come back to see
“Old Farts De Jour”
Such fluff…our stuff

Call my agent and hear him say,
“Well, I’ve got you a job”
And I whimper…”What did you say?…Today?”

We've got to wake-up…we’ve got a gig
And although it’s early morning
And I’m now a fat pig
We've got our covers and so we dig
Them out…our hair is still big…

Ohh…I show some flair
No…oo…Split my underwear
Lose my place so I say The Lord’s Prayer
Lookin’ for a chair
While the people stare

I’ve got my spandex…stretchy and taut
You brace for the jeers when “love handles” you've got

Ohh…I start to swear
No…oo…Fitin’ in that chair
Butt hangs out…it’s so hairy and bare
Still…glad…I’m a millionaire…

(Repeat until Twisted Sister come up next…then Poison…etc.)

Bon Jovi out of his youth and out of shape. This would have worked awesomely as an Elvis song, because you know what happened to Elvis, but this was still pretty great and I'm happy to see you joining in on the festivities.

I echo Matthias' comment. If Bon Jovi was in that situation, he'd have to hire a personal trainer, or get liposuction. I'm also assuming his wife's a good cook. That's a good one, IB! 5's

(Ages)Pretty funny, I say...even if JBJ hasn't gotten obese in real life.

(Ages) The whole time I read this, green, red, yellow, blue and and orange dots kept appearing infront of my eyes for some reason... a few spelling errors but great rhyme scheme structuring.

(Ages) See above! One of my favorite songs to listen to and to record: http://www.badave.com/parodies/parody.php?st=139 (It's been awhile since anybody has had a shameless plug)

"She says, "You’ve got to finish what’s on your plate Then take another helping And then seven or eight” I know she loves me but I’ve gained some weight" Freaking brilliant. Pacing wasn't perfect, so 4, 5, 5.

(Ages2) Spelling errors aside, this was great work IB! 555, yadda yadda yadda, you know the drill.

(Ages) That was funny IB, really well done, making it a tough round you guys are, I won't nitpick because anything I would have pointed out has already been pointed out (except diner=dinner but like I have room to talk considering I've made that exact mistake before). . .Fun OS too

Effective parody, and would be very fun to sing. The original can be epic in karaoke. Well done IB.

AGES...This made me giggle, IB...lots of laughs, but the wimper line just made me laugh a little harder. I don't even know why...but all over, it was great stuff!
Melanie Lee - January 25, 2009 - Report this comment
Good stuff; some good laughs. You seem to switch themes between Stanzas 1 and 2; Stanza 1 doesn't indicate you're talking about an aging and (physically) expanding rock star. Watch the spelling, too: it's "fitting" and "dinner". Pretty good all around. 5-4-5.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. This was a fun comp.
You were totally right to point out my spelling mistakes. That was just sloppy of me.
This truth is...I'm a terrible speller. Spellcheck didn't help me here. I once wrote about it in a parody I called "Let's Turn The Spellcheck On". The idiot I was making fun of was me...

(Ages) I laughed a little too hard at this one :) Great song choice, and lots of good lines.
