The Lyrics

For the longest time I thought this song was called "Strange Days" (hence the parenthetical subtitle). TOS is on the "Milk and Honey" CD (1980 recording, 1984 release). I used the recording from "The Very Best of John Lennon".
"Oh boy"!

[intro]

Veronica she stalked me - it seemed a bit absurd
Jessica was faking love - she acted like she cared
Took Britney in the bathroom - (we) did it on a dare!

Never was it happening - with that girl Leslie N.
Katherine was good looking - but she was just a friend
I once got slapped by China - turned out she's lesbian!


Noboldy told me that the world's fright'ning
Nobody told me there'd be girls like these
Nobody told me there'd be girls nightly
Strange dates indeed! -- 8 days a week!


Sarah was a runner - and flexible to boot
Christy confessed sinning - she liked forbidden fruit
And Melissa made the night calls -
- dressed up in a Batgirl suit!

Evelyn was tryin' - I never left the ground
Heather was a lion - you should have heard the sound
There was Grace who starred in the movies -
- I'm sure you've seen her around!


Nobody told me that the world's fright'ning
Nobody told me there'd be girls like these
Nobody told me there'd be girls nightly
Strange lays for me! -- those peculiar women


I thought Paige was joking - she used to be a GUY!
Bev's love is undying - I never knew quite why
And Joan hastily moved to New York -
- and now wears a disguise!


Nobody told me there'd be girls like these
Nobody told me there'd be girls nightly
Nobody told me they would all bite me!
Strange dates for me! -- those peculiar women, oh!

Clever stuff, Red...15 lines about 15 women:) ...Clunky pace and wordage here and there brought this down a notch, but earns a 5 for Funny on the winking reference to "8 Days a Week".

John Lennon was cool.Everytime I hear this song along with ''Imagine'', I always asked myself why he thought of quiting The Beatles (they were better together), but I guess that's life. Excelent parody BTW555

I counted 30 lines about 15 women, both numbers divisible by 5s.

(ABC3N) Yet another great idea for an OS, Jack (you must be sick of me saying that) and TMGLTM, but I loved the inspired use of "8 Days A Week "- 555

(ABC3N) Coz I admire your writing so often, Jack...I'll be honest and say that the pacing, although not strictly off, was a tad clunky: not enough to drop you a mark, but difficult all the same. The humour, however, was spot-on. 555
