The Lyrics

Hey folks, it's been a while! Here's a parody about something I have no direct experience with...unless you count the flying cookware. (Don't know the original song? Watch it here:
Ow! Ow Ow Ow Ow Ow!...


The French chicks get their periods
Even they get the blues
From les crampes to maux de tete. But I've got
Some welcome news:

A rub on the neck might be kind of romantic
But Advil is a girl's best friend
A diamond is grand but it won't stop the cramping
In your uterus
Or save your butt from PMS
Men run out as girls freak out
For that time of the month's come again
When I've got that fever I need pain reliever
Advil is a girl's best friend

... Tampons!
... Napkins!
Dong Quai! Menstural cups!
Talk to me Doctor Winston, tell me all about it!

There may come a day when a dame needs a doctor
'Cause Advil is a girl's best friend
Each month there's a time when you're feeling improper
from menstrual pain
Ibuprophen might make you sane

Scare your guy when temper's high,
But don't say something you can't rescind
It's then that your boyfriend will hide in his guy den
Advil is a girl's best friend

I've heard of some gals who will threaten to murder
But Advil is a girl's best friend
And I think their guys should just go dive for cover,
That's a better bet
When sweeties make big bad threats,
Time rolls on and youth is gone, won't THAT be a huge relief!!!
But until that time, geez! Take two pills and...chill, please!...


Advil... Advil...
You know the drill, gals...
yes Advil...
is a girl's best... best friend
Parody by Mason "just waiting for the pills to kick in" Resnick Translations: les crampes = cramps maux de tete = headache

A bit of TMI here (though I know the situation at hand well), still a quality parody despite that. I am on diclofenac, also known as voltaren for chronic pain and it's my best friend. Classic original song too, 5s.

Of course I remember the original song. The oldies are are the most fun to parody and you did that one justice. Advil is more valuable than diamonds.

Works even better when accompanied by chocolate, I find... ;) 555

Good to see you around Mason! And always nice to see another george-with-the-red-hair parody! Take five Advil and call me in the morning.

Good unclean fun. I'm sure Marilyn would have loved it - the parody I mean. The spoken substitutions are especially funny.
