The Lyrics

This in no way reflects on my wonderful wife
I came home last evening
I had a plan, I had it all worked out
Plopped on the couch believing
I'd watch tv with the guys, and be loud

Then I saw you in the hall
You had your arms crossed and a big frown
What did I do, babe--She told me
She told me "The toilet seat ain't down"

"You're taking me for granted
You're living like a hog
Now go and walk the dog!"

Now she nags like a wife
And it really bites
She nags like a wife
Thinks she's always right

"I'm tired of you slackin
Not picking up your clothes anymore
Take off your shoes darlin
Can't you see you're tracking mud on the floor?"

"Now babe I'm going shopping
Behave while I'm gone
And make sure you mow the lawn"

Now she nags like a wife
And it really bites
She nags like a wife
Thinks she's always right

Won't be catching you anytime soon unless I pull a Malcolm the next few weeks!

For an old one by you Jeff this one was pretty good, although you left out a lot of the song towards the end (Which you probably wouldn't have done if you wrote this parody today) But for a parody posted before I was even born (To the Amiright world that is) is pretty impressive.

(Ages2) Man, this is an old one. Not particularly funny, seems kinda nasty. And I can't really relate to it to make it all better since it's a bit too early for me to be married! Ah well.

AGES...I like visiting your old stuff, always makes me smile. Now put the seat down, or I'm going to kick your butt.

(Ages) Not bad, not bad. Not hilarious, but clever, cute, and a nice read. You could've done more with the extension. Now go clean your room and I'll be home by 5:55.

Short but funny. Makes me think of a "Honey-do" list...

Took me a second to realize this one IS 6 years old, because I could have sworn you weren't married. I thought it was funny, unfortunately lyrically you were limited, but it'd still make a great recording. Jeff-the dark horse, it's too bad you missed a few rounds in this comp, you were a strong competitor through most of the comp, as always I had fun. . .let me know the next time you have a chance to come to VA, I'll set up the Karaoke.

I'm priviledged to be the first person to comment after this parody's official 6-year anniversary. I had a 'fight with your wife' parody in '03 too, I think. Not your best (with good reason), but great to see as an early write.

Tremendous Jeff, those of us married will recognise the symptoms....see also "Things" (original artist Bobby Darrin) sentiments exactly !!!

(Artistry) See above.

Funny that I read this right after T-Cop’s because it’s laid out as a story. 1st you get super annoyed by your nagging wife THEN you go and have a really dull affair.
