The Lyrics

Went to my very first karaoke night on vacation recently (no, I didn't sing); the best one was a lady who sang this but it still made me wish the lyrics were a little different...
Some say love, it is a flower
A tender, fragile rose
Some say love, is more like crabgrass
Cause like or not, it grows
Some say love, it is a cabbage
It makes a dreadful stink
I say love, it is a pretzel
It makes you want a drink

No wait, love, it is a hot dog
It's not what it may seem
Ooh! No! Love, it is a taco
Just hold the sour cream
How 'bout love, it is a skateboard
Fun, but kind of rough
Maybe love, it is a donut
Filled with tasty fluff

Clearly love, is a banana
At first, it has a peel
Then it's cut in little pieces
And added to cer-eal
So eat, that love banana
Eat every little bit
Or else love, will get some ice cream
And love will have to split

Strangely enough, Claude, I misread the last word, leaving out the "l".. as I think about it, it seems that maybe that last word is (how shall I put it) a euphemism?

This was good... i went to my first karaoke night during the cruise i went on a few weeks ago. I ended up going for at least a litle while very night and for almost the whole time a few nights. It took awhile for me to build up the courage to go up there by myself, but once i did i kept going back again and again. I wasb thinking about choosing a song i had done a parody to and singing my lyrics instead of the ones on the screen but never quite got around to it... maybe the next time i do karaoke i'll try that.

Claude I love this; I'd love to add some of my own verses but I'll refrain. Thanks for the laugh.

I like this. Definitely has "a peel".

Very creative, Claude. Royce is right, it does beg other verses. 5-5-5

This is a great one, Claude. Gets every author's mind ticking. "Love is carving your initials.. on a white dove".

Love means never having to say you're infected.

shameless plug here... since so many of you know this song maybe you can check out my parody a few days back called "the cold". Its not as good as this but right now it just has 3 votes

Some say excellence, it is a Claude Prez parody. This was all good, especially the hot dog line.

Thank you, Claude. Now, the next time I hear that song AGAIN, I'll think of your pretzels and hot dogs instead! Maybe that singer at the karaoke can do your version next time.

Thanks everyone; for the record, I'd welcome any additions or revisions to this. I like it but I'm sure there's a much better song in the idea somewhere; I just got tired of looking for it.
