The Lyrics

This is not about my life now, but I was married once before. The name has been changed, or I'd be seeing more lawyers.
There goes Gabby yakkin' with her mother
Tellin' old mommie what I did today
There goes Gabby blabbin' I'm such a dickhead
Don't do no housework, I don't earn enough pay
She gives an earful, she got the notion
Take the kids away
A vacation, the ocean
Away from me is what she wants today

I've heard the song about the sweet lovin' woman
But all I think of is the knife
I hear the talk, I hear the talk of wife

There goes Gabby and she'll tell you a story
How romantic I once was
There crows Gabby and I'm feelin' snore-y
Dreamin' 'bout wirin' jaws
Mom knows it all now, how long my ween is
Yeah, all the details
Each stupid fight now, between us
Sounds like a blackboard used by fingernails

I've heard the song about the sweet lovin' woman
But all I think of is the knife
I hear the talk, I hear the talk of wife

Still more Gabby sayin' things to strangers
Boo-hoo-a-hooah , got a lot to say
There goes Gabby sayin' I gotta woman
Down with the music havin fun today
I got reaction, I filed a motion
Yeah the boy can play
Separation, emotion
Sending all those children half of my pay

I longed for years for silence and took a walk
Guess I was wrong for each minute of my life
No further talk, no further talk of wife

Hmm... I guess that intro was an essential (wasn't it, Mari?) ;-)

This one will hold up in court. Good job!

Rick D - Very funny and super job with Pacing here. 5-5-5. Yeah, Phil, I think the intro was a real good idea. I don't think Mari would think it was about her but this is certainly a "better safe than sorry" situation. Otherwise Rick might find himself asking JD where to get the best deal on a real good "Inflatable Woman".

Yo, Rick - voted on this one earlier, just wanted to mention that I have a Doobie Brothers posted today that's based on a concept I got from a comment you once left on somebody else's parody, in which you said that when you hear a group start to sing something like "Who-o-ah, listen to the music", you change the station because you don't like them using their own lyrics to promote their own DB parody today is kind of "for you", dude!

Cringing and laughing at the same time = 5s. Great work, Rick.
