Meet the Parents Extra: Won’t You (Buy Something For Me)

In a special extra episode of the podcast, Tim shows why he should never be allowed anywhere near The Voice with his self-penned Valentine’s Day parody of the Simple Minds anthem Don’t You (Forget About Me).

Won’t You (Buy Something For Me)

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, oh

Next Sunday’s Valentine’s Day
Don’t be a fool, gifts are romantic, baby
Send me some perfume and chocs
Giving me luxury, not some more socks

And if you want to win the day
Don’t just go giving me expensive lingerie
Mess up and I’ll have a rant
And you won’t get into my pants, baby

Won’t you buy something for me?
Won’t, won’t, won’t, won’t
Won’t you buy something for me?

Will you show some romance?
Be a gent, take your chance
Time is running, time is running
Out, out, out

February 14th
Make an effort for one day
Time is running, time is running
Out, out, out, out

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, oh

Don’t leave it till the last hour
Won’t have you buying petrol station flowers
I want a nice card to show you’re not thoughtless
Modern man not Neanderthal

Won’t you buy something for me?
Don’t be a fool, gifts are romantic, baby
Going to give you one chance
How about a weekend in France, baby?

Won’t you buy something for me?
Won’t, won’t, won’t, won’t
Won’t you buy something for me?

Log on Amazon
And buy gifts for me
Spend some money now
And buy gifts for me
Use your credit card

Or will you pay by cash?
Will you pay by cash?
Come on, buy me gifts
Will you buy me gifts?

I say la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

Spend some money now
And buy gifts for me
