The Lyrics

I've heard some of us guys have a hard time making committments. You know the old joke: "A guy chases a girl until she catches him." Here's a little take-off of the great Brenda Lee classic showing how easy it is to become ensnared in a woman's sticky web ... and how dangerous a front porch used to be.

My baby thinks I live in fear
Mm, mm, she’s bluffin’
I’ll guarantee you loud and clear
Mm, mm, she’s bluffin’
Tells her friends and family, I’m just a bum
Bluffin’ baby
She thinks they’re all so dumb
She’s bluffin’
Mm, mm, she’s bluffin’

She says she’s found a better man
Mm, mm, she’s bluffin’
I tried to make her understand
Mm, mm, he’s nothin’
Sure's got them down
Those greasy moves so slick
He thinks he knows just what makes her tick
He’s nothin’, mm, mm, he’s nothin’

I’m finally sittin’ on her porch
Mm, mm, she’s bluffin’
Her kisses startin' to scorch
Mm, mm, playin’ rough then …
Mama turns on the front porch light
She says, “Grab him baby
I think he's lost the fight”
Not bluffin’

Mm, mm, not bluffin’
Playin’ rough and …
Mm, mm, no bluffin’
Playin’ rough and …
Mm, mm, sweet nothin’s

(Repeat and fade)
Ah those front porch swings! ;-)

True and wise words...we must be on our "Card" with the opp-sex

Good observation on this one; well done with OS

WARNING: Front porch swings may be hazardous to your freedom, guys. Do it in the back of the car -- and as for her pressuring you, tell her you'll drive off that bridge when you come to it.

OTOH, I remember a hammock under the night sky on a Caribbean island... Brenda Lee one of my faves. Tough OS from which to make something, but you made "somethin'" from "nothin's". Swinging these Fives at ay.

at "ya" ... actually, I'm dyslexic, as well as insomniac and agnostic. Sometimes, I stay up all night, wondering if there really is a Dog.

Scorchin Porchin Fives... No bluffin, muffin! ;)

I saw her back porch swing and she ain't bluffin'. "Do Do Do lookin' at that back porch." She may even get a little kinky and you can play bind man's bluff. Fine write Forsby.

@AFW - Thanks. Yes, and watch out for mama too!

@Tim - I appreciate it. The OS is a favorite of mine. Remarkable singer 'Little Miss Dynamite.'

@TT -clever comments as usual. You're really somethin'! R U really dyslexic? Are you a member of DAP?

@ Fiddlegirl - Thanks Porchy! You're the Best! (I'll bet you say that to all the guys.) ;-)

@Guy - Reminds me of what we used to say when we were out walking and spotted a cute girl: "I wish I had that swing in my back yard!" :-D

Not really dyslexic, just a poor typist. It's these @#$# flippers. Look how often I type my initials backwards!
metaphorsbwithu - September 02, 2009 - Report this comment
Okay. So then you're not a member of DAP (Parodists Against Dyslexia)?

Don't tell me I slipped one past you! You must be tired. :-D

Actually, busy e-mailing back and forth tomorrow's co-labor-ation, but not knowing the acronym, I thought it might be an actual organization for dyslexics, or if a gag, DK what the initials were. ... hey, at least I gave all the info to "get" MY joke! :) :) .. but ok, you slipped one by. I owe ya a beer. :)

You got me here under false pretences: I figured that in context "she's bluffin'" would be a cross between blowing and huffing... in places, it looked like I was nearly right :-)

Not *all* of them! ;)

@TT - Yeah. I hate always having to put smiley/winky faces to indicate a joke. That's why most of what I write slips past people I guess. It used to be called dry wit. For the interested, the backward "DAP" instead of "PAD" was a play on your dyslexia quip, of course. I slipped another one in another comment too, in case you missed that one too. You DAC! ;-)

Well, Phil. That's the problem with being a serial punster. People see all sorts of things that are not necessaily there. If it's entertaining, there's nothing wrong with that.

Porche la Femme! I like that. :-)

Well done and a lot of fun....and I ain't bluffin'!!
metaphorsbwithu - September 03, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks Mark! I really love how the songwriters from way back were able to go near the edge and still keep it fairly innocent (with a wink) and fun. It's a challenge to follow that lead but I love doing it.

I commented at that one, but apparently it didn't post. I *did* get it, but it wasn't applicable, as I'm not truly dyslexic.

Realized DAP was a dyslexic gag, but with no clue as to what the acronym was supposed to mean, I really *don't* think I owe ya that beer. ... btw, I'm a member of DDAM -- Drunk Drivers Against Mothers (not really). :)

Very much appreciate dry wit, and very little slips by, but there just weren't enough data to decode PAD, even after reversing it. (I could think of a thousand things it could stand for -- but won't.) So actually, you owe me a beer. :) Don't care for Dub (in more ways than one), so make it an Etacet, please.
metaphorsbwithu - September 03, 2009 - Report this comment
Hhmmmm ... I guess your train of thought ran off the track because I don't know why I should suddenly owe you. Etacet? Didn't someone run into trouble in a recent parody over something like that. Well, whatever. I'm always gracious so, to paraphrase an old Russian storyteller, "This spud's for you."
