The Lyrics

And why you guys are the only men I trust, and should be my only boyfriends from now on...

Know my story is nothing new
About a guy who made me blue
Thought it was love; he ran around
With other girls all over town

Hey! Hey!

Ahhh, I should have known it from the way he’d text
He only wanted me for casual sex
But now I see he’s just a real Don Juan
S’ keep away from-a Sleeparound Shaun

He said the things that I wanted to hear
That he really cared and he wanted me near
But just ignore all his muscles and brawn
And keep away from-a Sleeparound Shaun


Ahhhh…he was a football guy
So naturally he caught my eye
He told me that he would be true
He had…no intention to

Well, he told a pretty story and I bought it all
But man, the truth was a real curve-ball
I was a fool, BUT now the light’s on
So I’ll
Keep away from-a Sleeparound Shaun

(Hey, hey)
Yeah, keep away from that guy
(Hey, hey)
‘Cause he’ll just lead you on
(Hey, hey)
Keep away from Shaun!

He spread is love around
Got girls from ev’ry edge of town
And I’m sure you know what he did
Fathered…thirty seven kids!

Here's the ending of the story, I can’t see my toes
Plant-ed his seed; now my love child grows
Can’t get support, ‘cause the bastard is gone
Wish I’d
Kept away from-a Sleeparound Shaun

(Hey, hey)
Stay away from that guy
(Hey, hey)
Unless you want a kid, too now!
(fade to end)

Men. Can't live with them, can't shoot them. This parody, however, is right on target. Love it!!

I hope everyone knows I'm not really pregnant with a muscle-y, super dreamy, football playing lothario's love child. That I know of. ; ) If I am, Ash, you have to throw the baby shower...and send the bill to the NFL.

Wonderful as usual (say, is that how you pronounce Don Juan over there?)

Funny! That's what happens when you mess around with the football player types instead of us nerds.

Thanks for the other side to Runaround Sue. The same artist who recorded that also made "I'm a Wanderer".

Funny stuff Arwen. Stick with nerds from now on. They won't have the charisma to pull this off. No worries.
