The Lyrics

Every day
Trying to comprehend what she say
But it all comes out like jello, eh?
She's always trying to tell me
'Bout the things I do
I can't stand it
It's gotta be her own damn way
It's gotta be that or the highway
Now I hear her yelling
"God, NOW what did you do?!"

Oh yeah, oh yeah
She's my bride and I love her
She's 'Sweetie' for life
Oh yeah, oh yeah
But I do not dare do things on my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh, I try to follow the meaning of wife
It never works out that way
Cranks with no thanks!

It's the way
That the clothes get dried and soaped,
Which way the toilet paper rolls,
Or how to drive downtown--
Washing dishes, too!
"You don't do it right"
Is all she seems to say
She's the right, and I'm the wrong, hey
Maybe she just acts like
Her Mom or Pop did too?

Oh yeah, oh yeah
She's my bride and I love her
Oh yeah, oh yeah
She's 'Sweetie' for life
Oh yeah, oh yeah
If not for her, I would have no ringtone
Oh yeah, oh yeah
I'll just try to follow the meaning of wife
So I can have a peaceful day
Manx, where's my thanks?

Oh yeah!
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
She's my bride, and I love her
She's 'Sweetie' for life
If it's up to me, I'd do it on my own
Lose the pride, now swallow the reaming from wife
Upcoming Sweetest Day?
Skanks, get no thanks!

Man... It's parodies like these that make me happy that I'm only 19, and not even thinking about marriage. Good job telling it like it is Aggy!

It's always prudent to "worship the Goddess" Sir!

LOL, lots of clever little things that anyone in a marriage, or even a long-term relationship can relate to and understand. Well done!

(Artistry) Clever! Loved the 'ringtone' line...all over very sweet.

(Artistry) A husband hopes his wife will never change but she does. A wife hopes her husband will change but he doesn't. So she HAS TO MAKE HIM. Fun lyrics.

(Artistry) I thought this OS was a difficult one to take on, and I'm impressed with the lyrics you squeezed out of this somewhat insane original song. I'm glad that I can't relate to the topic;)

(Ages) I think we've all been there. If not in a marriage then for sure in a relationship or even a friendship there's always that one person who knows that they're right and everyone else is totally wrong. I was only 19 when I last commented on this parody? It didn't seem like this round was that long ago, but I guess a year can go by pretty fast.

(Ages) "Cranks with no thanks" was a good one. All the more reason to stay single. I can imagine, "Write the lyrics THIS way! You know, you're not that funny. When are you going to mow the yard?"

(Ages) Nice rhyming switch-ups each time. Hey, she may decide which way the toilet paper rolls, but you've graciously been allowed the option of fold or scrunch.

Ages--basically, it's pretty simple. She's right. You're wrong. The end. ; ) Nice work, Agri...

Ages--good to see this again, I enjoyed it the first time (and this time)

(Ages) Nice job on a tough OS. It's becoming obvious from this competition who is married and who is not. :-) ...OR IS IT?!
bobpiecheese - December 29, 2008 - Report this comment
(Ages) See above!

(Ages) I think you matched well. There may have been a glitch in the second half, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, the lyrics didn't make me laugh or turn me on. Yes, you do have some insights. Probably I didn't like the OS either. 5-3-4.

Well done to an extremely mumbled song. My highlights were: 'Cranks with no thanks', 'dried and soaped' and 'washing dishes, too'.

(Ages) Awesome song choice, and very funny--I had some pacing quibbles, but considering my song chocies lately I can't really nitpick on that can I?
