Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dire Straits: What I may be in if I keep doing songs about Mrs. Michael Douglas. Disclaimer: Yes, Catherine and Julia were in lying in bed together in "America's Sweethearts," but there was nothing kinky about it, they were just playing sisters in a screwball comedy. But it shows you what I'm up against.
(instrumental opening)

Boo-hoo!

Boo-hoo-hoo!

Here comes Catherine, she's a star of movies
Big Russian ruler, she was cast that way.
Here comes Catherine, she looks really groovy
back in "Chicago," tried to make crime pay.
She makes attraction with motion
oh yeah, the girl's okay!
Desperation, devotion
what I got at nighttime, every day!

But she's Michael Douglas' sweet-loving woman
in my heart, it's like a knife!
All I do is gawk
I only gawk at wife.
Yeah, I only gawk at wife.

Boo-hoo!

Here comes Catherine in "The Mask of Zorro"
kissed by Banderas, and my ego's bruised.
Here comes Catherine, tells me, "Get more," oh
her phone commercials give me blues.
She's got the "traffic," the "entrapment"
oh yeah, the girl's okay!
It's me she's "haunting" -- enrapment!
New meaning of "intolerable cruelty!"

But she's Michael Douglas' sweet-loving woman
in my heart, it's like a knife!
All I do is gawk
I only gawk at wife.
Yeah, I only gawk at wife.

(instrumental break)

Boo-hoo!

Here comes Catherine as the twelfth of Ocean
I'm reminded of another flick
with Julia Roberts, "America's Sweethearts"
a scene in bed with another chick!
What's with that action? I got emotions
with those, the girl will play!
Frustration explosion!
"Terminal," I'm feeling, every day!

After all this Zeta-Jones and Douglas talk
it seems I'll never find an ending to this strife!

All I do is gawk
I only gawk at wife.
Yeah, I only gawk at wife.

Boo-hoo-hoo!

Boo-hoo!

Boo-hoo-hoo!

See, at least I have the sense to have a celebrity obsession who is single...and...um...therefore, so much more likely to come around and fall for me...

Gotta admit that I prefer blondes, but for CZJ and Liv Tyler and Sandra Bullock (the way she looked in "Speed") I would make a foursome exception... ehh... well... one by one would be fine too, guess.
