The Lyrics

This was a weird sexist song when I was a kid. I just updated it to reflect modern technology
Reuben, Reuben, speaking strictly
All the men on earth could die
And the race would still survive, in-
Vitro egg implanting's why

You're an optimist there, Rachel
If the men on earth should die
Who would kill those nasty spiders?
Think you need that gene called "Y"

Reuben, Reuben, we don't need you
Science proves this thing I say
Moms and daughters could take over
Though I guess we'd all be gay

Rachel, Rachel, no real sports then?
No more football Monday night?
If there was no male aggression
There might be no wars to fight

Reuben, Reuben, got a point there
We might miss you for a spell
Once we have re-decorated
We'll get used to the new smell

Rachel, I'll go pack my bags now
I see that you're right, of course
All us guys will wait for death now
Can't be worse than a divorce

Dammit, you spelled traditional wrong! Oh well, good parody anyways.

"Reuben, Reuben, we don't need you" -- That line made me so sad :(

I meant to put in a jokey disclaimer excluding our own Jeff R. Just like I was originally going with the "Reuben Sandwich" idea. But as usual, I'm always in a hurry, and forgot. Jeff, you know I'm just being elitist from the other side.
