The Lyrics

This was a PAIN IN THE ARSE to write. Took BLOODY ages, 'cause the original song was just so damn REPETITIVE. My chosen topic matter didn't really help matters.
Oh man, I got all dressed up for nothin'
I got all dressed up for nothin'
Oh man, I got all dressed up for nothin'
I got all dressed up for nothin'

It's no fair, I took hours (Yeah, Yeah)
Choosing the right flowers (Yeah, Yeah)
Roses seemed to corny (Yeah, Yeah)
But were cheap at Power's (Yeah, Yeah)
My suit was real expensive (Yeah, Yeah)
It cost more than the dentist's (Yeah, Yeah)
Too tight on my middle (Yeah, Yeah)
And parts I can't mention (Yeah, Yeah)

I asked this girl out to the movies
We decided to meet there at nine
I just thought that she was late
Waited, thought things were just fine

She phoned up to tell me
She went out with Tony
Dumped me, I am, cryin'
But the part that I am most pissed off with is

That I had got all dressed up for nothin'
I got all dressed up for nothin'
Hate that I got all dressed up for nothin'
Yeah, got all dressed up for nothin'

It's now my best mate's wedding (Yeah, Yeah)
Pete bagged some chick called Gwendy (Yeah, Yeah)
She hasn't turned up yet (Yeah, Yeah)
What kills me is waiting (Yeah, Yeah)
Peter then gets a phone call (Yeah, Yeah)
Something's not right at all (Yeah, Yeah)
Eventually spills it (Yeah, Yeah)
Gwen ain't comin' at all (Yeah, Yeah)

Seems she just ran off yesterday
With the best man - that's why he's late
I really don't care about her
Not if she ran with Trent Reznor

Ev'rybody's cryin'
You'd think someone was dyin'
You may think that I am whinin'
But this suit cost a fortune!

Mad that I got all dressed up for nothin'
I got all dressed up for nothin'
Hate that I got all dressed up for nothin'
Yeah, got all dressed up for nothin'

Now I'm here at the Oscars (Yeah, Yeah)
Don't know how I got here (Yeah, Yeah)
Some contest or somethin' (Yeah, Yeah)
But the point is, I'm here (Yeah, Yeah)
But they're taking forever (Yeah, Yeah)
Where are the presenters? (Yeah, Yeah)
They're finally startin' (Yeah, Yeah)
But I fell asleep-a (Yeah, Yeah)

Dreamed about a cow
(Dream involved a cow)
Dreamed 'bout you somehow
(You were there somehow)
Then I ate you
(Devoured you)
Dreamed I ate the cow
(Course I ate the cow)
You were made of jam
(Somehow made of jam)
Dreamed I took a knife
(Bread and butter knife)
Spread you on my toast
(Then next thing I know)
Dreamed I flew a kite

Later I woke up when someone
Started jabbin' me with somethin'
Really sharp and in my shoulder
I woke up and it was over

I was close to cryin'
Was such a waste of time 'n'
Not to mention borin'
But it's not like this suit's cheap or anythin'

Pissed that I got all dressed up for nothin'
I got all dressed up for nothin'
Hate that I got all dressed up for nothin'
Yeah, got all dressed up for nothin'

All them suits cost a fortune (Yeah, Yeah)
Next time won't be bothered (Yeah, Yeah)
To go somewhere fancy (Yeah, Yeah)
It will end up torture (Yeah, Yeah)
No more wastin' a fortune (Yeah, Yeah)
And hours of torture (Yeah, Yeah)
To look like a monkey (Yeah, Yeah)
Yeah, I won't be bothered (Yeah, Yeah)

I'll look like a fool
(I'll look quite the fool)
Like a total tool
(Total utter tool)
A moron too
(More insults too)
What a total fool
(Can't be more a fool)
No more shall I waste
(Man, I hate to waste)
Just to impress you
(Try to impress you)
It will go to waste
(Such a total waste)
Sick of it, it's true

Ow!

Ow!

Yee-haw WOO!

If a friend had a baby (Yeah, Yeah)
I won't see the baby (Yeah, Yeah)
It's not a maybe (Yeah, Yeah)
You may think that I'm crazy (Yeah, Yeah)

Peeps are always havin'
Some mighty celebration
Won't buy their persuasion
Always a 'formal clothes' thing

I'm sick of gettin' dressed up for nothin'
I get all dressed up for nothin'
You said that this time it might be somethin'?
I know that it's always nothin'

Them suits cost a fortune (Yeah, Yeah)
But you know what's torture? (Yeah, Yeah)
Getting the suits off (Yeah, Yeah)
Is a real big bother (Yeah, Yeah)
I can't get the pants off me (Yeah, Yeah)
My hips got too fat, see (Yeah, Yeah)
Can't undo the buttons (Yeah, Yeah)
I'll just shred them in three (Yeah, Yeah)

And so that is why
I hate getting dressed up
You know that I hate it
So why don't you give up

You cannot get me out
I won't look like a fool
Oh wait, it's the movies?
Okay, count me in too!

Let's get crackin'!
Ma Ma Se,
Ma Ma Sa, Ma Ma Coo Sa
Ma Ma Se, Ma Ma Sa,
Ma Ma Coo Sa (repeat 'till fade*)
*There's just NO way I'm typing out the whole friggin' thing. Who the hell would?
