The Lyrics

Sometimes when you try to stay near the original words, the song takes you strange places.
A man works selling shoes
He says why am I married with children now
Why am I married with children
At home with my wife really sucks
I need a porno opportunity
I want a shot of Jack Daniels
Don't want to end up on T.V.
As a sit-com re-run
Golddigger golddigger
Dog is a big schlub
Couple morons right next door
And it's Bud/Kelly Bud/Kelly
Get these brats away from me
You know I don't find the wife arousing anymore

If you'll be my ball and chain
I won't get another gal
I will call you Peggy
And Peggy you'll annoy me
When you whine "Oh Al!"

A man works all day long
He says why am I short in my paycheck?
Got a short little gap in my paycheck
And woah that half-hour's long
It's that wife and family
Need a big laugh here
Where's my next role coming?
Now I'm typecast for so
Long long
I'll act back into drama
With a roly-poly stern faced cop
Al was wrong wrong
Took this comedy shtick to extremes
Made a mint with naughty situations

If you'll be my ball and chain
I won't get another gal
I will call you Peggy
And Peggy you'll annoy me
When you whine "Oh Al!"

A man comes on the tube
It's a set with a live crowd
Maybe it's the third take
Maybe it's the first take today
He doesn't have the script down
He has no current jokes
He is an awful ham
He is surrounded by the boos, the boos
Battle for the market share
Network suits and cancellations
Boy, I miss good comedy
I say, I've been, a media legend

It will be my claim to fame
I will be a past icon
I will call her Peggy
And Peggy she'll annoy me
When that show comes on

Mari, Mari quite contrary

Great job, Rick. Here's my favorite Al Bundy quote:

I've been married over twenty years now.

I've seen her from the front
I've seen her from the back
I've seen her in a chair
I've seen her in the sack

I've seen her stand
I've seen her crouch
I've seen her on her stupid couch

I do not like her in the mall
I do not like her in the hall

I do not like her in my life
I do not like my big red wife

An excellent and humorous retrospective of Married With Children, Al Bundy, and Ed O'Neil! Fives all around!
Jan Unwin - January 14, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm impressed. That's got to be a hard song to do. Fives!

"A gigantic lady came into the shoe store today..." Any time that line was uttered, I knew something funny was coming. Good job. All 5's.

Missed this the first time around. Awesome. I never watched that show, not once, but get most of the references! I don't see much likeness to the one that appeared today.. or was that not what you were referring to?
Rick D - January 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, I'm not upset, I just thought that maybe I inspired the Bundy reference. Same song, two days later? Maybe not.

Oh, I know... we ALL do that from time to time.
