That Top's Decision (R.E.M. Parody)

The credit for this wonderful parody goes to my friend Amy. I'm even mentioned in the chorus! We sang this one during the jam session at the September SCONY weekend and it was a blast. No, I didn't get sent to the corner after singing it. ;-) Hope you enjoy the spankified take on the R.E.M classic, Losing My Religion.

That Top's Decision

Oh.. tops, are bigger
 Their egos are bigger than you and me
The lengths that they will go to
To put tears in your eyes
Oh no I've said too much
I set you up

That's Lea in the corner
She just had a big fight about that top's decision
He likes to tell her what to do
And I don't think she's gonna do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I saw you kicking
I thought that I heard you scream
I think I thought I saw you cry

Every moment of every waking hour
Tops try to get confessions
From innocent bottoms just like you
Like an evil and jaded fool, fool
They always say so much
To set it up

Consider this, consider this,
The thing called the F.E.S.
Consider this, the strap
That buckled both my knees
Now, what if tops with belts and straps start to flail them around
Now I've said too much

I thought that I saw you kicking
While you were across his knees
I think I thought I saw you cry

But that was just a scream
That was just a scream

That's Lea in the corner
She just had a big fight about that top's decision
He likes to tell her what to do
And I don't think she's gonna do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I saw you kicking
I thought that I heard you scream
I think I thought I saw you cry

But that was just a scream
Why cry
Try to fly away
That was just a scream
Just a scream
Just a scream, scream.

Lea,

Excellent. However, I have never seen you in the corner? Usually, you are just grabbed by the arm or ear and taken away. LOL.

Hug,
joey

@joey, I've been pulled by the ear INTO a corner, just in private. ;-)

@amy, You're right! My time is blurring. Is it October yet?

@SNP, Glad you enjoyed it!

@Ana, It's been known to happen on occasion. Lol.

@ronnie, I'm a fan of both versions. Glad you liked it!
