The Lyrics

I'm going to try and parody every song from the Brothers In Arms album. I've already done Walk Of Life, now I'm going to start from the beginning and work my way through the rest of the songs. Wish me luck. :)
I don't have any luck with the girls today
'Cause they all run away from me
It's what they do when I come their way
They all run away from me

They all run away from me
Must be something wrong with me
They all run away from me
They all run away from me
Not right

I try a pick-up line in any singles bar
And the girl runs away from me
Communication skills must be under par
'Cause the girls run away from me

They all run away from me
Is there something wrong with me?
They all run away from me
They all run away from me
Not right

And I get so sad every time I say hi
And the girl runs away from me
See, I'm not such a dud, I'm just a lonely guy
Every girl runs away from me

They all run away from me
No experts in subtlety
They all run away from me
They all run away from me
Every time

All run away
They all run away from me

(They all run)
Oh, they all run away from me
Yeah, they all run away from me, all run away from me

(They all run)
Every girl runs away from me
Just runs away from me

(They all run)
All run away from me
They all run away now
They all run away from me, all run away from me

(They all run)
All run away from me
Yeah, they all run away from me

(They all run)
Not right
(They all run)
'Cause they all run away from me

I feel like an idiot, but I only recently noticed that the ads on the left are somewhat related to keywords in the parodys. Note yours on this one. "Endangered species, Brain tumor patients, and Are you a new Dad?" We should start voting on the ads. Hilarious. Oh, I can sure relate to yours too.

The ads take a day or two for google to index the page, so that they will find a keyword they like. If the page has no keywords that people have paid for, they run public service announcements (which makes zero cash for everyone involved).

I like this parody - I can surely relate to it, I have never successfully been able to appropriately flirt with a girl I see, or else she's already taken. I'm not the best at socializing either, it's part of my mental disability. Because I've always been lonely and excluded much of my childhood, I wrote a song with a similar theme on this site. It's a parody of the Ramones - "I Wanna Be Sedated" called "Segregated". Go check it out!

I give you 5s, too. I recently wrote a parody similar to that which is "I Kissed Jewel At A Train Station."
