The Lyrics

I first came up with the title as a line for another parody, in the end it didn't fit the theme of that one, I'm not sure any original song fully does, certainly syllable count to the title of this one doesn't, though the rest comes pretty close, so says all my Filipino and Belarusian "friends"…

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meRgT5Nmogw
She's like a home appliance, a household asset
She's got a lotta features and washes glasses
But she's running late, and she's only gettin' later
She's never the bride, always the maid
With mailorder brides, she's always the maid
The mail-order maid

She's into housewarming as her occupation
Fifty jobs a year, she's tipped a lot of beer
When she's moving on, she's not even gettin' moved on
She's never the bride, always the maid
No mailorder bride, but always the maid
The mail-order maid

(Give her an instrumental break, will ya!)

She's not chestily blessed, no cherry pie
She's an effing old hag, can't land a guy
Times is running out, and she's into getting' blackouts
She's never the bride, always the maid
With mailorder brides, she's always the maid
The mail-order maid

(I said; give her an instrumental break!!)

She has a stamped compliance, she's serving lasses
They all got hotter bodies and firmer asses
She can not hook up, even with a master baiter
She's never the bride, always the maid
No mailorder bride, but always the maid
The mail-order maid
A postal bridesmaid
A mail-order maid

ROFL! .. but it sounds to me like she *does* still have her "cherry pie". ... BTW, I'd like a maid -- hate housecleaning -- and not having to marry her is a big plus! Big Fives.!

...And are you related to Benny Andersson, of the group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday, 15 March, and whom (plug) we've been tributing all week? ;)

Phil Nelson and John Barry: Thanks!

Tommy Turtle: No relation that I know, but there's like three hundred thousands or more of us Anderssons. BTW, it should be "still cherry pie" to make sense, thanks for bringing that to my attention.
