The Lyrics

If this looks a little familiar, then you know about Airfarcewon's colorful 'Anemic' parody of the original (The Girl Who Looks Anemic).
Mine is a slightly different take. It's not so black and white.
White and thin
And pierced with something
The goth who looks anemic is mumbling
In black she dresses,
Her face finesses a…scowl

When she walks,
She’s like a zombie
She owns a bird who dons her shoulder
The tune it’s winging,
A Cure song singing so…fowl

She thinks people are sappy
She is allergic to color
Yet she still longs to be happy
For each night, when she walks in her dreams
She wears brightest clothes, bluest jeans

Late at night
Her friends come calling
The goth who looks anemic is yawning
And when they’re leaving, she smiles
For she has a dream
She just wants a dream
She’s wanting her dream.

Cute idea - a winner. Wish I'd thought of it. It seems AFW did? Good stuff, both of you. My kin of parody. Playful, innocuous, a little silly.
