Most Overused Phrase in Ms. Lori's Everyday Conversation

I find myself saying "gimme a break" at least six or fifty times a day. Frankly, I'm sick of hearing myself whine this phrase over and over again, and have decided that it's personal growth time. So, beginning today, instead of only saying "gimme a break," I will employ the rest of the lyrics whenever I feel that life is being stingy with me.

Gimme a break, I sure deserve it
It's time I made it to the top.
Gimme a break, I’m looking forward
Get behind me, pull out every stop
I want a happy ending
I'm tried of pretending
Won't let 'em get the best of me
Wo wo wo wo
Gimme a break, the game is survival
Gimme a break and plan my arrival
Gimme a break for heaven's sake
What happened to my piece of the cake?
Gimme a break
Gimme a break
Gimme a break!

I also say "this sucks shit" a lot, but there's no way to improve on perfection, so I'll leave that as is.

I tend to say, "Oh please" alot. Used for when people say something stupid.

I say "This blows", "It's hot as balls in here" "Motherfucker" alot. I think you singing Gimme a break is by far the funniest thing ever. You should record it and post it. Lovin it.

I say "D'oh!" But there's no song for that either.
I thought the lyrics started with
"Gimmie a break
Now I know what it takes..."
? No?

Bev, I wrote some lyrics for the shit song yesterday, sung to the tune of "Jesus Loves Me," but I deleted them. Too blasphemous, even for me.

Angie, I'll bet my left boob you said that while reading this post! ;-)

Alexis, I SOOOO would post an audio if I had the equipment. My voice ain't too bad. Wish my webcam wasn't broken, too, else I'd post pics of me singing "Gimme a Break" while vacuuming. That would be sweet.

Anne, nope. The spirit of Nell Carter tells me this is so.

Top exclamation coming from these lips lately, due to stress and fatigue and a failure to be more original, is "Goddamned Cock-Knocking Fuckstain!"

Draw your own conclusions. :)

Peter, "cock-knocking" is an intriguing phrase. Nonsensical, yet not. I picture a rooster being beat about the head with a soup ladle.
