The Lyrics

I don't think I'm that picky...really...
Once in a while it happens
My friend has a guy I've "got to meet"
"He tells the greatest jokes--and he is so sweet"

When I agree to date him
His face is an ad for Stridex pads
I've lost my appetite--his acne is bad

When I get stuck out with a guy who's really zitty
Is my friend crazy? What'd she do?
If I get stuck out with a guy who's really zitty
The only thing to do
Act like I have the flu--and ditch the schlub

This girl will date who she pleases
All of my time, I flirt with boys
When I find one who's hot--it's such a joy

But when his hair takes longer than mine
He looks at himself one too many times
Talking about the way--he's cuter than me
(GASP!!)

When I get stuck out with a guy who thinks he's pretty
Checks mirrors vainly--in the loo
If I get stuck out with a guy who thinks he's pretty
I'll tell you what I do
Pour steak sauce in his shoe--and ditch the schlub

(instrumental)

Why can't I find someone who's cute and really witty?
Who isn't lazy...and straight too!
I really want someone who's cute and really witty!
I won't settle, it's true
My guy has got to prove--he's not a schlub!!

Methinks M-dawg hast taken this parodie far too seriously, forsooth! 'Tis a fayre and forthright song ye have created, lady Arwen...555

A guy can certainly be zitty and nice at the same time, but if his face is oozing cheese-whiz, I wouldn't blame a gal for saying thanks-but-no-thanks. 555

Thanks guys...for dropping in...I'm under the influence of major narcotics right now...due to my recent trip to the Dentist...so I'm out for today...be good, all!!

Not only that, how many guys like zitty girls? I loved the "guys who think they're pretty" part too! I don't ever want a boyfriend who is more beautiful than I am!

I hope you feel better soon, Arwen ... wait a minute, what am I saying? Major narcotics? Have fun, Arwen, make the best of it - and remember what Johnny Carson once said about Percodan - "It's a shame to waste 'em on pain."

I JUST got the Athos thing, Kristof. I will do my best to blame it on the drugs...but we all know I'm not really that reliable in the "sense" department anyway...hehehe. Thanks, all for your votes and well wishes. I'm up from a fabulous slumber and am feeling much better. Still a bit sore...but better, none the less. I appreciate you all VERY much...and special thanks to my little Musketeer who helped me get through the morning...Mmmmwah!

Thanks Joelle...and TTP...blame what on you? (thanks for the vote!)

Oops ! when you said "I will do my best to blame it on the drugs..." ,I went for a pun on a ( I'm guessing now,obscure) Jacksons song whose chorus goes "Don't blame it on the sunshine,Don't blame it on the moonlight ,don't blame it on the good times,blame it on the boogie!"
The Thought Police - June 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Hey ! I just found the song! It was called "Blame it on the Boogie"(now my pun can die the lonely death it deserves!)

DKTOS well enough to vote, but very clever use of the title Arwen!

There is nothing I hate more than seeing people walking around with a big ol' white head on their face! Great work!!! 555
Arwen - June 22, 2004 - Report this comment
No need to sentence your song to a lonely death, TTP...remember, I'm totally OUT of it today, so I didn't get it at first. Sorry! It's a very clever comment. 555 on your comment!! =) Thanks, Merry!! And again, Mr. D...I'm feeling better by the second...and as always, it's a pleasure to see you, Cookie-man! Thanks!!

Very well done, Arwen! Just remember - you can pick your dates, and you can pick your zits, but you can't pick your....oh, never mind. :)

I'm SOOO L-ing OL over that, Ravyn...so gross! Thanks!

Or maybe you should change your name so you don't keep attracting all those Ringheads who'll never, ever, EVER look like Viggo Mortensen no matter how much plastic surgery they have!

Michael...Viggo Shmiggo! You should know by now that I'm secretly holding out for a 30-something, left-wing, Star Trek fan...; )

Well, there ARE the pointed ears in common... but somehow I don't think it would be logical. And being an elf, it might be hard for you to be home around Christmastime. Unless they don't celebrate Christmas in Middle Earth, though there is certainly enough snow.

Mike: I normally only say this about my own stuff, but that last joke was so bad, I think you owe us all some money for the extra brain damage it caused. M-Dawg: Haven't you ever heard Green Day's 'Nice Guys Finish Last'? Arwen: Good work, as usual. Did I mention how handsome and zit-free my face is? Oh well, I'll try to put a pic on the messageboards in the next day or two, just as proof.
Arwen - June 28, 2004 - Report this comment
2nz, Hooray! I finally got my little message board profile up and running...major problems getting that thing set up...but I will check faithfully to see your cute and clear complexioned visage...=) (But you'd better not be prettier than me!!) And thanks for getting my back, too...I was so drugged up the day this posted that I couldn't think of one smart thing to say to M-Dawg...=) Thanks Thanks Thanks!!!

Late to the party on this one, but this is excellent. I love the way you alternate the chorus to progress the story. Very well-crafted. Bastard.
Arwen - March 27, 2005 - Report this comment
You're always welcome to my parties, Leo...regardless of how late you are...=) Glad you liked it. Bastard.
