The Lyrics

With my drapes and valance rodded down,
I gaze at them with pride, with pride
Dressed up my room like a Gucci gown,
So elegant and wide..
I'm just glad that I stopped at the shop I saw,
They show off the walls of wood..
Found the perfect color, adds real class...
..They look mighty good..

From out of the back, the store clerk came
Lavish drapes in his hand, his hand
He carried the ones that I would choose
To make my home look grand..
I'm so glad that I shopped at the shop I saw
They show off the walls of wood
They're a beautiful, bergundy red...
..They..look..mighty...good

Many a drapery I have hung
On many a windowed wall
Just glad I got...drapes with a valance,
I got...drapes with a valance
I got...the finest of them all..

This style on my windows perk the room,
Accents high fashion flair..high flair
Successfully paints a coziness
My guests will love to share..
Oh, they hang to the floor and they're wrinkle free.
Adorned with a perfect hood..
But without my added special touch
They would not look as good..

My faithful companion, Sniffy knows
He'd better stay away, stay away
One snag or a chew will blow his chance
For every gettin' gray..
One remark that my favorite lady made
Was the best rolled off a tongue..
Said the drapes and I look good together,
'Cause we're both well hung..

Many a drapery I have flung
On many a windowed wall
So glad I got...drapes with a valance
I got..drapes with a valance
I got the grandest of them all

I'm glad I got...drapes with a valance,
I got the grandest of them all

Superb write on this one, AFW ... especially liked the "Sniffy" verse, which rings aggravatingly true of my last Lab, who loved nothing more than barking and jumping at the squirrels who were the main customers at a bird feeder hanging just outsideour family room window. (The well-hung line was good, too, but seemed inevitable in the context.) :-)

Very good title and parody. As Jeff Reuben commented, the well hung line stood out.

This is so good, it's a shame that California voted not to let you guys get married...

Thanks, John....and TT...welcome back...me and the drapes?...I could never rape a drape..or be hurtin' a curtain...or get odd with a Cape Cod...or lie back with a tie back...etc. etc.

Sorry I wasn't clear.... the "you guys" ref was to the "interior decorators are gay" stereotype... , i. e., "sorry that all of you gay guys can't get married," not you and the drapes... my bad.
