Facts:
  • From the 1985 album DARE TO BE STUPID. (sav-man)
  • This is another of Weird Al's "style" parodies, where he doesn't parody an actual song per se, but a genre of music. In this case, Weird Al and his band send up '50s' style doo-wop. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    (constant "doo wop"s in the background throughout the song)

    Aahh....

    Well I heard that you're leavin' (leavin')
    Gonna leave me far behind (so far behind)
    'Cause you found a brand new lover
    You decided that I'm not your kind (aahh..)

    So I pulled (I pulled) your name out (name out) of my Rolodex (oohh..)
    And I tore all your pictures in two
    And I burned down the malt shop where we used to go
    Just because it reminds me of you (dippity dippity doo)

    That's right (that's right) you ain't gonna see me cryin'
    I'm glad (I'm glad) that you found somebody new
    'Cause I'd rather spend eternity eating shards of broken glass
    Than spend one more minute with you

    I guess I might seem kinda bitter
    You got me feeling down in the dumps
    'Cause I'm stranded all alone in the gas station of love
    And I have to use the self-service pumps

    Oh, so honey, let me help you with that suitcase
    You ain't (you ain't) gonna break my heart in two
    'Cause I'd rather get a hundred thousand paper cuts on my face
    Than spend one more minute with you

    I'd rather rip out my intestines with a fork
    Than watch you going out with other men
    I'd rather slam my fingers in a door (yah)
    Again and again and again and again and again

    Oh, can't you see what I'm tryin' to say, Darlin...

    I'd rather have my blood sucked out by leeches (leeches)
    Shove an icepick under a toenail or two
    I'd rather clean all the bathroom in Grand Central Station with my tongue
    Than spend one more minute with you

    Yes, I'd rather jump naked on a huge pile of thumbtacks
    Or stick my nostrils together with crazy glue
    I'd rather dive into a swimming pool filled with double-edged razor blades
    Than spend one more minute with you

    I'd rather rip my heart out of my ribcage with my bare hands
    and then throw it on the floor and stomp on it 'till I die
    Than spend one more minute with you
