The Lyrics

As always for the latest in indie parody recordings. . .but you guys know I'm not some sales man:)
It's in my love you'll be believing
I'd do anything, won't ask why
Oh it's your lovely eyes I'm needing
I just wanna be by your side

I'd Drink from the Missouri River
I'd take pills so that I don't snore
I could find a new career
If it'd make you say, That I'm yours

Could you listen to me while I pour my heart now!

I'm desp'rate for you
I'd do anything it's true
When you wake, I could do your nails for you
I'd use Nair for you

I'd help you pick out your shoes
Even give up my car to you
You'll control the dial too
Be a slave for you

Now babe you know, I'd clean up old grime
I'll watch the Soaps, turn off the race
Massage your feet and rub that big toe
and All them corns will go away

Oh baby, I love that big round belly
and though you are growing, I don't mind
I'll hold your flubber, when you sleep next to me babe
I won't hang out with those friends of mine


I'm desp'rate for you
I'd be a floor mat for you
If you please, I'd walk around bare for you
I will share with you

I'd give up Pepsi for you
Eat dog food, if it'd keep you too
Don't know what else I can do
I'm desp'rate for you

(instrumental break)

I loved you dear, I'm feeling crappie
I get happy when you're around
I forgot your latest birthday honey
But I'll wait on you. . .and your spouse


I'm desp'rate for you
I know your in love with Drew
I'd be pleased, to be his bowling friend for you
I'm in love with you

Before you were with that dude
I know that I wasn't into you
but seeing you with him--I'm blue
I'm desp'rate for

I'm desp'rate for you
Even wrestle bears for you
Please don't tease, I'm wearing a thong for you
Let me be with you

I'd lie and I'd steal for you
I'd parachute from the sky for you
I would even do that nude
I'd be bare for you

Wooooh Wooooh ohhhh

Wooooh Wooooh ohhhh

How many tributes are you going to have about me Dave? I know this one is probably not inspired by me, but I believe I have to be the most desp'rate man I know... (And that you probably know too)

Matt, I'm kinda hoping this isn't about you, 'cause I don't want to think about you doing nude parachuting. But whether it is or isn't, don't drink from the Missouri. I live in Omaha, and I'm telling you...whoever she is she's not worth killing yourself. :-)

Thank you Matty and Wolverine, I can say safely that Matty you were not the source of this song, though I'm glad you can relate ;) And Wolverine, being born and raised in St. Louis, that's why the Missouri popped in my mind right away, I agree--I wouldn't touch that water:)

OK, so watching soaps is too much for me, I'd rather drink from the Missouri or even the L.A. River for that matter. Funny, and you hit all the aspects that were relevant and a few I didn't think of (or would never use) ;-)

He was MidWestern Boy on his own -- He headed West, thought it good for his soul -- He saw that face, and he lost all control -- Ahh, those ~SFO~ nights, high in the hills --

Very obscure choice of song. At least there's a Youtube for this one. I don't know why you pick the most obscure song by the Artist, because I mean even Aggy did a song I recongized and he's the King of obscure music. Anyways... I'm glad that this isn't about me, but I relate, because I've spent time thinking that if I did all of these types of things MAYBE, just maybe she'll leave the guy she's with and be mine, but of course it doesn't work that way. Story of my freaking life here (Done a lot funnier than my life)

But thanks for the comment. You may not have heard of this song before, but it is FAR from obscure buddy:)

Fine... But the Reel Big Fish one was obscure. Extremely obscure.

I'd be lying if I tried to claim that "Doo Doo" was a popular OS, I just really don't care for that band--so I took on the easiest song I had heard by them. At the time I didn't realize it was a tribute song for a fund raiser--but this song isn't for a fund raiser (I will never make that mistake again)

(Artistry) On obscurity---this was the BJ song I was least familiar with on this round. At any rate, I feel that you were trying to go for a Weird Al style here...that being the case, it wasn't as funny as I thought it *could* be. I really liked how the 1st verse started off so sincere, as if it could have been the OS, then went wacko.

Agri, thanks for the comment, but I have to be honest, of late it seems you aren't into my stuff--I can live with that, but like in the last round where you zero'd me--I don't know how much I could have changed this--I don't think I would for a recording. . .

This song isn't obscure, it just didn't get played as much as other songs from "New Jersey", like "Bad Medicine". TOS is wussy even by Bon Jovi standards, so this parody really fits it... I mean that in a good way, i.e., I read this as a non-so-subtle Bon Jovi satire. Dave... giving up Pepsi? Now THAT's desperate! =)

Too desperate, not desperate for 5ives however.

Adore it. I absolutely adore it. Take these 5's as a token of my grattitude.

(Artistry) Like Agri said, there was a certain Weird Al quality in this parody - mainly the silly-love-song aspect of it. I liked the way you ended it on the nude note. Wasn't expecting a love-related BAD parody, but you did very well nonetheless.

(Artistry) This one really connected with me for some reason -- brilliant work.

(Artistry) I think this may start a new phrase: The way to a woman's heart is through her spouse. HA!

This is like the anti-One More Minute song (an old original by Weird Al, and one of my favorites). And as I look up, I see other Al references. Very well done!
