The Lyrics

Ah, I love the music of the forties. The girls were so hot too. Here's a little switch on the Andrew Sisters version of "In the Mood" in which a guy makes the big mistake of buying his girl a Butt Buster for her birthday. Talk about totally getting a girl out of the mood! :-)

That darn whatchacallit, that I bought you last night
Know you misconstrued the reason started a fight
Ran back to my corner took a deep breath or two
Thought the whole thing over was the wrong thing to do
Lost my chance for lovin since I blew it real good!
I made a big mistake I was so misconstrued

Thought that whatchacallit was a lovely idea
Thought ya might decide to tone and tighten your rear
But you know that I just came here straight off the farm
Thought a little exercise would do you no harm
But I’ve learned the hard way I’m not that sharp a dude
Oh, baby cut some slack ‘cause I was misconstrued.

No fits!
I’ll stop it!

Baby I’ve got it!

Oh, don’t have a fit

Babe, don’t jive
Come slap me five,
Now don’t have a cow!


Bub-a-la bub
Like a ba-lubba

Pow, pow, pow
Show me some power

No lightin’ no fightin’
Was misconstrued now!

That watchacallit gonna take it back soon
I’m been lookin’ at ya in the light of the Moon
Never liked no string beans they fall off of my spoon
Just come to me baby sing that magical tune
Call up for some take out get us lots of fast food
‘cause I never ever wanna be misconstrued

Stupid whatchacllit, I sure do owe you one!
It all goes to show now that there’s all kinda buns
Never gonna push no situps crunches besides
Already get our exercise stayin’ alive
Swing back honey dance I got a new attitude
My heart’s dancing’ too won’t ever be misconstrued

I'm hit!
‘cause I get it!

No more
No ifs ands or butts!
Dig ya later, doll face! :-)

Miss Construed. Isn't that a category in beauty pageants? Like the title, like the parody.

Did you know that the average act of love consumes 250 calories? Tell her that, and that you'll help her with her weight-control plan, chivalrous gentleman that you are. Here're 2.22 love acts to get you guys started, burning 555 calories -- and sooo much more fun than that machine (or any other!)

@ John Barry: Shouldn't that be *The* Miss Construed"? ... lol anyway!

Fine parodyin'! Here's some, whatchamacallits--oh yeah, Fives!

This is the type of song that really lightens the mood. And it's so messed up that this guy buys his girl a Butt Buster for her birthday. Reminds me of one of the episodes of Family Matters way back when Carl gets his wife Harriette a trampoline because he understands about how insecure she felt about her weight and that she considers his present insensitive and unromantic! Pumping up some 555's!

LOL-- well-played, Forsby! [Practical: out. Luxurious: in. Sparkling: foolproof!]

Yeah, that would get her out of the mood, Meta. Of course, we guys are all typically clueless about stuff like that. Most of the time she won't tell you; she'll just be upset. Nice write on this one.

Brilliant, as a title sub idea, as a storyline and in execution. :-D

Blackjack21 - Thanks! Yeah, I love how words can subtley connote other ideas.

John - If there isn't, there should be.

TT - No, actually, mathematics and nutrition have never entered my mind. :-)

TJC - Thanks - I love imaginative lyrics.
Christie - Nice observations. Thanks! I think fun is a good thing, especially poking fun at ourselves. I appreciate your insight. :-)

Fiddlegirl - A sparking glass of wine for you ... or two ... or :-D

Timmy1000 - Exactly! I don't mind making fun of myself. Being clueless about some things is very liberating. People take thmselves way too seriously.

Phil A - I'm very grateful for the encouragement and positive comments. I love to know that people get it and are entertained when I write something.
