The Lyrics

Yesterday was a bad day at work, and then the Yankees undid a month's worth of fine baseball with one disastrous night at Fenway Park against the Red Sox. I was trying to write a parody around the name of A.J. Burnett -- maybe a BTO rewrite, "You Ain't Seen Good Burnett"? -- when I started thinking of people I'd rather see again than him. And since it's been a while since I (or any of us -- shame on us!) gave our favorite Elf Princess one of these, I figured it's time. Disclaimer: I haven't brought back the character of "my evil twin Bernard" for a while, but the lyric just came to me, so I got out of the way and left it in.
(instrumental opening)

I'd like to be
somewhere I'd see
not a sourpuss, but Arwen is displayed.
She'd let me in.
Not Bernard twin.
He's a sourpuss, left Arwen quite dismayed.

I'd like my friends to come and see
no sourpuss, just Arwen and me!

I'd like to be
somewhere I'd see
not a sourpuss, but Arwen is displayed.

Give her a "ring"
(ah-ah)
in Wyoming
where the sourpuss is former Veep Dick Chene...
(puss is former Veep Dick)
The kind of guy
for whom she'd write
'bout how sourpuss he's been, and quite insane.
(he's been and quite in... )

We would sing and dance around
where no one cares how much we've clowned!

I'd like to be
(ah-ah)
somewhere I'd see
not a sourpuss, but Arwen is displayed.

(instrumental break)

We would shout
(ah-ah)
and fly about
the mountains with their purple majesties.
(with their purple majesties)
Oh, what joy
for, well, any straight boy
knowing that his precioussss is no tease.
(knows his precioussss is no tease)

We would be so happy, she and me.
Even if she tells me what to do.

I'd like to be
(ah-ah)
somewhere I'd see
not a sourpuss, but Arwen, yes, it's true.
Not a sourpuss, but Arwen, yes, it's true.
Not a sourpuss, but Arwen, yes, it's true.

So sorry to have missed this yesterday! =) Mr. Pacholek, you never cease to make me smile...this was a great way to start off my Friday morning!

And for the record, straight boys aren't the only ones who adore me...I'm kind of like Mariah Carey that way. ; )
