"Did My Instagram Get More Likings Than Her Yelp Review Tonight?"

The Lyrics

The challenge of modern dating; how to prove more interesting than your partner's smartphone.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here. Shortly before posting I realized that this is not a Muppet Show original, and there's at least a third (middle) verse out there on the older original. Also - ignore the spoken parts, I've not parodied those.
This girl I'd like to plow
I dine her to and fro
Her name's Ophelia
We met on Social Media
A friend I'm in her zone
I think I'm getting pwned
I sneak out to the rest room
For a heads-up on the blow

Did my Instagram get more likings?
Than her Yelp review tonight?
Did my Snapchat friends all caught it?
When she duckfaced me outright?
Should I Podcast us and waffle?
While we've Siri by our sides?
Was this Chick-fil-A to her liking?
Should I call an Uber ride?

But the date is moving on
To Ready Player One
An 80s movie
Nostalgia so groovy
She Tweets out discontent
Much like the President
Again I hit the rest room
And I'm feeling kinda spent

Did my Facebook status update?
Get ahead of things tonight?
Social Media's complicated!
I don't think I do it right!
Should I use WhatsApp and sext her?
While I Tinder on the side?
Oops! - I swiped right on her sister!
Guess I'll sleep alone tonight!

But there's always PornHub, right?

You stretched the topic super thin since this is not only barely a showtune but it’s also barely about food. It’s more about technology which is a topic for another competition perhaps.

You didn't follow the parameters, but wow, this is Spaff-level material here, Pete! I wanted more, more! You really made me chuckle and guffaw. Back in the day, I would put this up as an SOTM. Maybe you should check out the classic Lonnie Donegan version and give us an expanded version of this. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXp0i7Y1eVo).

@ Matthias: I can absolutely agree on the barely-a-showtune part - but the title of the round was not food, it was "MUSICAL DINNER THEATER" - and I have dinner covered in the first verse, and theater/movie covered in the second. ;-)

Thanks Agrimorfee! I didn't see your comment when I answered Matthias, you must have submitted it while I was typing. I'll definitely look into writing a third verse for this one, set to the real original song, but I'm not sure I can come up with something similarly interresting/distracting happening between the dinner and the movie.

not sure about your instagram, mate, but you're racking up the 5s, here! 5s

You could actually turn my parody title for today into a parody of this song: “What did I stick in my old freezer?Cause it looks gross, Such a fright!”

Killer last line, K1 but I especially loved the title sub, and the discontent/President rhyme - 555

Super idea for a title sub, really well executed :D
