The Lyrics

A little too easy to write
Watched football with the guys
At a bar she called, "Hey J,
I've been fixing us some dinner
In my sexy negligee!"
But when you start to drink
It's so hard to just slow down
So when I showed up at midnight
She wore old sweats and a frown

So I'm back in the doghouse again
Leaned in for a good night kiss, and burped right in her face
Now I'm back in the doghouse again
Told my friends the details how, I got to second base
When we dance, stomp on her feet
Cold in bed, I stole the sheets
Leavin up the toilet seat
Back in the doghouse again

My girl was mad at me
Said I flirt behind her back
That I'm stare at her friends' asses
And I'm checking out their racks
I tried to set things right
I surprised her with a cake
She said, "Jeff, it's not my birthday
But it is my best friend Blake's"

So I'm back in the doghouse again
I said "I'm sorry Cindy", but, my girlfriend's name was Kate
Now I'm back in the doghouse again
Thought I'd try a new shortcut, we got there three days late
Backed over her kitty cat
"Your new dress makes you look fat"
What the hell made me say that?
Back in the doghouse again

--Instrumental Break--

Now I'm back in the doghouse again
Surprised her with a promise ring, it turned her finger green
Now I'm back in the doghouse again
Treated her to Hooters once, I said the wings were lean
Didn't do her laundry right
Put my red socks with her whites
Shrunk her clothes, they're all too tight
Back in the doghouse again

excellent, Mr Platinum - sounds like you need to get to our next meeting, and fast!....it's just a minefield, what with having to avoid squashing their kitty cats and all....it puts me in mind of my (warning: shameless plug) shed parody:

(SOTM) Love this! Reminds me a little of The Man Song (I think that's what it's called) that they play on Bob & Tom, once in awhile (it has lines like "I'm the king of my castle.... when you're not home")

DKTOS and up here in Sweden it's most of the time to cold for the doghouse so at now almost supressed times I've ended up sleeping in the bath tub instead (and that time I was really bad and she sneaked up on me after I had fallen asleep there and turned on the cold water... well, I better not go into that any further...)

I can only remember the chorus but still very funny and well-written. And tirelessly researched. Great stuff.

(ABC3-B) wow, this B comp is a doozy! Great laughs, Jeff, and see above - and after shrinking her clothes, no wonder "Your new dress makes you look fat" - great pacing also!

(ABC3-B) That's what I like about these rounds, Jeff. Some of the great ones I missed the first time around show up and I don't feel I've missed much. Wait, that didn't sound right. This is great, loads of laughs, well-written and fives-worthy. Glad I got to read it. 555 (there, that's a little better, I hope). :-)

(ABC-B)same feeling as I had about this last time, jeff...absolutely first class writing.
