The Lyrics

So yesterday I talked about a video game trope. Today, however, it's time for a rom-com trope that needs to die in a fire!
I know all the tropes in this one
Trite-ass story of love
Can believe me
The man can be overweight
But the woman? No way
Slight pudge, you see

But she'll still think she needs to lose weight
And the narrative thinks that's okay
I feel so bad for you
Homely shrew

Ev'ryone insists that she's "plain"
Cause of her non-twig frame
It just seems rude
Pair of glasses upon her face
Means she can't get a date?
What's wrong with you?

Her hair's in a messy ponytail
Somehow equates to "lesser female"
That's all she is to you
Homely shrew

May get a bit grumpy at times
She may snark and get snide
Call him a dork
She's a bitch? Don't understand
Doesn't eat out his hand
He calls her "whore"?

I don't think that this is true love, mate
He's the one who don't deserve her, lame
This film just makes me fume
"Homely shrew"

No, no, no, no, anyone but her! Not... Janie Briggs! Guys, she's got glasses and a ponytail! Aw, look at that, she's got paint on her overalls, what is that?!
