The Lyrics

This was really supposed to be submitted before Christmas...but my internet connection was not being cooperative. :(
Oh, my honey walked in and said "Hello"
Yeah, my honey walked in and said "Hello"
I smiled as I thought "Oh, how I love this guy!"
Well, until he shared news that made me want to die

Told me without any warning
Said, "Hey, babe, oh by the way
We're hosting the office party
And, so you know, it's today."

Oh, I stood and I stared like a statue
Yes, I stood and I stared like a statue
I couldn't see nigh of a joke in his eye
So I threw my hands up and I started to cry

"Told me without any warning?
How could you shock me this way?
I've got a sickening feeling
My life is ending today!"

Oh the sound of his words was like thunder
Oh the sound of his words was like thunder
The "What's the big deal" look he's giving to me
Is enough to earn him a quick kick to the knee!

Told me without any warning
At this point what can I say?
All of my senses are reeling
Everything's in disarray
Two hours to plan a buffet?

So what's the big deal? Just toss some cheese on some crackers, buy a couple of six packs, and you're good. Right?

Serves ya right for cheating on me... LOL... Rex: No big deal. She's an elf with magic powers. OK, occasionally, something gets burned...

Oh, poo! Just order a six foot long Subway and tell them it is a potluck dinner.

Rex...right. RIGHT. Nice timing with the belated advice! ; )

Matthias...hehehehe...and your point is noted. Excellent...

Michael...don't be silly...this is entirely a work of fiction, and I didn't cheat on you. First of all, I would NEVER date the kind of guy who would drop this kind of a bombshell on me at the last minute. Secondly, if I were actually in a relationship long enough to be hosting my boyfriend's work party at my home...it would probably be the end of the world, and you would never get to read a parody about it. I promise...you'll get an official break up parody before I move on to someone else. Or, at the very least, I will begin avoiding you like the plague, which is more my style. =) Since I have neither written said parody nor stopped talking to you...you can rest assured. =)

alvin...=) Thanks!

2Eagle...ah...next year, my friend...thanks for the tip. =)

Hee! (to use your expression...;-)) You HAVE to make these into a full alternative opera. How about "A Curry With Some Chips On Top"? Brill!! 555+

Kristof...great minds think alike, I think. I actually have several other, half-written parodies of Oklahoma songs to go with these...but couldn't get them all finished before the deadline for the event. Now, without the urgency, they'll probably take a back burner...but if I finish them all, I'll resubmit them as an entire album.

The Surrey song, however, IS about Turkey Curry...=)

I'm just a girl who can't say no... to another great parody from Arwen

Excellent substitutions and parody. The only thing I can say in defense of guys, like myself, who do things like this is that when her family and friends come over unexpected, it's "No problem. Great to see you." But when the guy thinks about having family and friends come over, it's "I need 3 months warning. These people will persecute me if the house doesn't look perfect."
