The Lyrics

Last night I saw the strangest scene
I saw her in Wyoming, she was so mad her mouth was foaming
And I laughed so hard I nearly burst my spleen
Didn't lend a hand to help you, why I so mean?
So you said...

"Stop laughing when I break my spine
No gawking when I'm falling down, oh no
That's right, just keep on moving
I'm crying cause I broke my spine
I've fallen on the cold, hard ground, oh no
An ice pack would be soothing"

You're on a boat and now the waves have passed
So now you're feeling cocky
But still your feet are blocky
Dancing around you never saw that mast
And that's the reason why you're tumbling so fast
And you said...

"Stop laughing when I break my spine
Not trying to impress the buoys, oh no
I've got to keep on floating
I'm crying cause I broke my spine
Knocked myself out falling overboard, oh no
Could someone throw a life vest"

Never let another girl like you on the ice rink
Never let another girl like you near the cliff brink
If I meet another girl like you I will tell her
Better not forget to tie your shoes, it's too late - oh!

"Stop laughing when I break my spine
Not funny it's a long way down, oh no
My balance ain't improving
I'm sobbing cause I broke my spine
I've fallen and I can't get up, oh no
That heat pack will be soothing"

"Stop laughing when I break my spine..."

LOL Jeff, I remember TOS here pretty well despite that I haven't heard it in years. Oh, you said stop laughing. Sorry~~. 5s
Jeff Reuben - July 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Red Ant. I heard it yesterday for the first time in years myself, and the idea just jumped right out there (twisted an ankle, and fell off the side of the road)

Hehe, for the first several times I heard this I thought he was singing "Break-a My Style".

Arwen just can't get a break (in private) can she? ;-)

You are one funny buoy. Haven't heard or thought of this OS in years, but it came rushing back. Great choice, great idea, great execution, bass turd.

Sounds like a candidate for a Compact(ed) Disk!

Jeff is tryin' for a three-way with Arwen and Ash. I guess that would be a Reuben sandwich. Great job here, Jeff 555

Oh Jeff! This is hilarious! So many great lines, but impressing the buoys and the whole "Never let another girl like you" verse had me in stitches. Arwen is going to be furious that she's out of town and missed this. But I think I laughed enough for the both of us!

Thanks for digging out and dusting off this one-hit wonder! 555

that's hilarious, Jeff - again a great title sub - I too had forgotten the OS, but the first line is unmistakable - 555
Arwen - July 03, 2005 - Report this comment
I am FURIOUS...that I didn't think of this first!! But, it's just as well, I'm sure mine wouldn't have been half as good as this...the boat verse was my favorite! GREAT job!!! =)

This is one of many clever parodies I missed while I was away. I'm back now! Anyway, 5-5-5. ;)

SOTM- very funny parody, but IDKTOS, so I had to compare it with the original lyrics, looks like a 555...
Jeff Reuben - August 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Dominic for making the effort, I appreciate it...BTW, the OS was a one hit wonder in the 80s.

[SOTM] Well executed and funny. Well done 555

(SOTM) Don't recall a video for this OS but this makes for a pretty funny mental picture. Flawless rhyming here Jeff.

(SOTM) What a fabulous tribute to Arwen! :D

(SOTM) that's even better the second time around, Jeff - gee, there are a lot of Arwen parodies around - why is that? (over to you Arwen...)

(SOTM) A one-hit wonder? Must've rocketed off the charts at breakneck speed... chortles throughout this one, Jeff.
Arwen - August 28, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM--I have nothing but endless praise for this one, Jeff...and you know this. I would love it regardless of your inspiration...but being able to take it so personally just makes it all the better...=) "An ice pack would be soothing" made me giggle extra hard this evening...
