The Lyrics

I see you in the headlines, laughing, smiling sans remorse
I'm crying 'cause the news says you are filing for divorce
My lawyer says your lawyer says you don't want me around
Oh, Katie, don't take your love to town.

Was it my religion or just something that I said?
I don't know the reason that you choose to be unwed
And, yes, I hit the big Five Oh just the other day
Oh, Katie, please don't take your love away.

I'm so cute it blows your mind - my age is just a date
I'm loved by many women so I'll find another mate
And someday soon your fiftieth is gonna come around
Oh, Katie, don't take your love to town.

If this goes the way just as this sort of thing before
She'll get a hefty settlement, the kid and even more
If that's the case I hope I'll cut her off without a pound
Oh, Katie, don't take my cash to town.

2E, great work-555! IIRC, Katie signed a prenuptial agreement. As for custody rights between LA and NY- who knows???

Thanks 2E for the inspiration not only to write my own parody about this topic but a Fragment as well. Credit where credit is due!

If you've been watching the net she's getting some hefty "child support" payments.
