The Lyrics

Part II in my series of How To Escape Detection when Having an Illicit Affair....Enjoy and Learn!
I was in bed this evening
Having fun with my boss's wife
I planned to stay until morning
Until I heard his car in the drive
I got pretty damn frightened,
Man, I got scared so I took a leap
Now I'm hanging.
Waiting for him to go to sleep

I've got no attire,
I've got no attire; see my bare arse
My straits are dire
From a balcony, dangling in the dark

My johnson's just started itchin'
Mojo's gone and I'm staring into space
I'm being stalked by a pigeon
Having great fun pecking at my face
All I wanted was nookie..
Now I'm suff'ring with two aching wrists
My boss is built like a wookie
If I'm found, he will be p***ed

I ain't no conniver,
I ain't no conniver, just one dumb shmuck
I need MacGyver
He could save me from dangling in the dark

She's acting coy like Liv Tyler,
Now he knows something's up so he starts to freak
He's gone to get his rottweiler,
Oh my lordy, I'm up s**t creek!

Just one way out, and it's down
Those thorns and cacti look sharp alright
But his mutt's probably hungry
And crikey, there's vast amounts of me to bite!
I just wanted some action
I drank too deeply from some other fella's cup
I could end up in traction
Or on Jerry Springer getting beat up

I've got no attire
There's a crowd, and cars have begun to park
I've no desire,
Lost it while I've been dangling in the dark
I've got no attire
I can hear the sirens of a fire truck
My straits are dire
From a balcony, dangling in the dark
I would rather be tangling with a shark
Even getting a mangling from a truck
This is misery, dangling in the dark

Heysave me!

An old Don Martin cartoon from MAD Magazine comes to mind, thereĀ's a guy in this situation and in the window below thereĀ's a playful kitten with sharp claws...

Outdone yourself, Kristof - I started memorising the conniver/MGuyver couplet to quote, but then there were a dozen others - and the storyline boosted it even further - big 5s for this, mate :).....being stalked by a pigeon!...LivTyler/rottweiler - hee hee hee

You should've worn a brilliant disguise. Then you might not be born to run toward that darkness on the edge of town. And that rottweiler's got more than a hungry heart.

(ABC05) Very funny. I had pacing problems every time the title (or the hook) came up, though.

(ABC 2005) You didn't tell us how it turned out, so now we're all dangling...

(ABC) I'm just about the biggest Bruce fan I know, but the OS has never been one of my favorites. However, the parody is absolutely superb! Too many great lines to name just one. Fantastic job, Kristof!

(ABC-D) Dangling Chad has nothing on this guy. I hope that's not his name.

(ABC) Well that's certainly a new angle on the old dangle.

Brilliantly written, especially the ending. I'm sure Blanket Jackson would give this 5s.

(ABC Finals) I'd forgotten how long this song was. I am also guessing you haven't been around the site much lately because you're getting your middle name changed to TMGLTM. Excellent. 5s.

Revisiting this one due to the recording, which is a hell of a lot better than TOS (never liked it). Fun stuff.

I cannot believe I never commented on this! Sorry Kristof, great job!
