The Lyrics

(aka: "Happy Wife, Happy Life") Original Song
Long ago
My dad gave words to live by once you are wed
Now I’ll...share them with you...

You will find, when there are hard times between you and your mate
You’ll fight, you’ll get annoyed...but you...
Should pause and take a break (take a break)
Put down that XBOX game (XBOX game)
She’s not your mom, you pain! (Help, you pain)
If you want to get some tonight...

It’s the best thing you can say
To make this fight go away:
“I’m wrong and you’re right...
I’m wrong and you’re right!”

Just don’t fight...
And go walk the dog, rake leaves and clean the den
Do all the stupid chores she told

You should know how pride tastes (how’s it taste?)
Just tell her she looks great (you look great)
Don’t argue on small things (no small things)
And you’re not on the couch tonight

It’s the best thing you can say
To make this fight shrink and fade:
“I’m wrong and you’re right...
I’m wrong and you’re right!”

And if you do that, I will say
Better times will come your way...
“I’m wrong and you’re right...
I’m wrong and you’re right!”

Can you hear me?
Are you listening?
Hon, we’ll have guests...
They’re my parents
For the weekend
...told you this last July!

That’s one thing you’ve never said...
Those words never hit my head
“You’re wrong and I’m right
You’re wrong and I’m right…”

But on my desk, a post-it says...
“Next year, the in-laws will stay…”
I guess you were right
I’m wrong...and you’re right

That would explain the SJW syndrome that have been popping up lately, women are budding dominatrix!

Better get used to this since you're getting married soon. That will become your catchphrase. I liked this one a lot because it really rings true for people in relationships.

(Artistry) Pacing was great, but I didn't really enjoy this parody. Mostly because the underlying joke ("always do what your wife says so she'll shut up and you'll get laid") was never one I liked. Just sorta plays into the stereotype of the nagging wife and the lazy husband who doesn't actually get why what he's doing might be wrong. As one of those jokes, you wrote it just mine, it's just not for me.
