The Lyrics

Lest any of my family or friends read this parody, it is a fictitious piece of nonsense - truly
All around me there are chewed-up slippers
bits of flippers, torn-off zippers
And she sits there with her tail-a-wagging
tongue out, panting - eyes enchanting
Try to scold her, but she cannot follow
no expression, no expression
Cannot buy new slippers 'til tomorrow
have to borrow, have to borrow

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
coz even though she's loopy
she's the best pet that I've had
I find it hard to tame her
coz she isn't very smart
I kinda find her cute though
even when she's been a
bad girl
bad girl
bad girl
bad girl

She's been with me for a year tomorrow
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
She can give me joy but also sorrow
Sit, girl - Lie down! - Heel - Roll Over!
When I ex-ercise her she keeps tugging
hates her collar, hates her collar
Sure I love her but she's so expensive
costs me dollars, costs me dollars

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
coz even when she's growling
she's the best friend that I've had
I find it hard to feed her
coz she's fussy with her food
but still I like to stroke her
even when she's been a
bad girl
bad girl
bad girl
bad girl

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
coz she's a pure-bred bitch
but she's the best wife that I've had
We married last November
'though my kids were unimpressed
They thought she was a hussey
but I've always gone for
bad girls
bad girls
bad girls
bad girls

There I was, labouring away, trying not to give away the masterful stroke-of-genius twist in the final verse, but I didn't make it interesting enough for anyone to actually reach the final verse - so NOW I have to explain to people how brilliant I was - how humiliating

thanks Phil, thanks John, thanks Cookie

Well, I was browsing todays songs for no reason, certainly not because of anything I read on the messageboard, and found this one hilarious! You are one spell-bindingly clever wizard!
Stuart McArthur - November 24, 2004 - Report this comment

good on you Kristof - I saw an opportunity for sympathy and I milked it - as any TOTALLY UNAPPRECIATED GENIUS would :-)

Oh, kapooey. I just finished my 'Bad Girl' and searched Tears for Fear to see what year they wrote the song. Seems like you beat me to it, Stu, and with a much better slant on the title! 455

(ABC3-B) Very original...especially the ending! What were you smoking? Nah, I'm just kidding. Well done.

Red Ant - July 16, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3B) lol, This reminds me a my first attempt at "Supercali...", which was never completed beyond the first verse. It was probably too dirty even for whatfreaks (which closes tomorrow BTW). Way to reign in the rauch and tame this puppy down, 'cause a rejection would have been humiliating (did I get enough puns in my comment? ;-))
Rex - July 16, 2006 - Report this comment
LOL. And "the best wife you've had"? Just how many have there been? :-)
