Don't take me to the mall
and take my dress away
In it I looked like an hourglass
but now its threadbare and fading fast
there are holes people can easily see

and I who in every concert dressed the same
will cough up some dough and get rid of my baine
I'll close my eyes and travel back
to the time when I wore white, red, and a only a little black
and the words from the Ledge with echo in my head
as my black dress slips away

Goodbye Baby
Although your clasp was broken
I won't forget you
Yes, you now are forboten (sp?)
You were with me all of the time
I'll be with you one day

And I who went to sleep with needle, thread, and shears
Woke up in tears, for a new dress has seemingly taken off years
And I who never, never wanted to say goodbye
As I sewed away

Goodbye Baby
Although your clasp was broken
I won't forget you
Yes, you now are forboten (sp?)
You were with me all of the time
I'll be with you one day

Didn't need to buy it

I have come to know
This world of changing dresses
I shouldn't fight this board
I can't change it
So be true to me
My waistline's slimmer
If I'd only get my own stylist
Could show off I'm trimmer

Aaah
Dressed this way and ran (on my treadmill)
as fast as I can

I am older now
But I still wear you-know-what
I lost 35 pounds
Won't dress to show it
So be true to me...

What you did not need was a woman in this black dress
Drab dowdy sister of the moon
I want to be her
I really want to
Please write Come for me, not for Ann Heche Lafoon

Go on change myself
I shouldn't be here

(I don't want to hog all the SYW songs. Somebody write Goodbye black dress before I do.

My pleasure! LMAO! My best yet:

Don' t take me to the Salvation Army
And make me give my black dress away
It was I who committed crimes against fashion
And the boos and groans like shattering glass went past me
Like a tunnel to Penney's

And I who went went to sleep in my mob widow moo-moo
Woke up with it gone and only my ghost white ass remains
I close my eyes and travel back
To the time when my fears went fading fast
And the words my dress spoke to me I'll never forget
"Slip me on along with big shoulderpads; it'll make the waist look slimmer"
As I slipped into fashion victim lists

Goodbye black dress
I hope your threads aren't broken
Don't forget the times we spent, my sweat plastering you to my back
Yes I was outspoken
"My dress will be with me all of the time"
I'll wear you again one day

And I who went to sleep in tears
Woke up in cold sweats for all of the years
And I who never, never said goodbye to my thrift-store threads
As I slipped into the grips of the fashion police

Goodbye funeral dress
I hope your breast still glitters
Don't forget the smell of my Atkins diet breath
Yes I was outspoken
"My dress is like my third ass cheek"
You'll be back there one day

You can shop for me
Shop for me
Shop for me
You can set my charge card free, baby!!

Well, you can see that I'm wearing all the same things
I can see that your thinking the same thing
Is it all that hard
Is it all that tough
Well you've taken all my dresses, well isn't that enough?

Default Illume says the dress that we hate

Disgusting~
Says the dress that I wear
At every concert, every appearnce, until the day that I die

Disgusting~
The way it hangs there
I am a black-wearer
So dig it fool (sorry for that one, couldn't think of anything else lol )

I like the color black
I like the dress
I like the way I wear the same thing
every night
It's like living like a freakin' pauper
I own one outfit
With a golden shawl and a tambo

I'm alone now
With my dress
And I how love to wear it
How I can't give up
All of the concerts
The smell of secret solid
Shadow of a pit stain

I can't take this dress for granted
I wouldn't trade it for Chanel or Escada
Not for Donna Karan, not for any brand.

I need it to be there.
Just remember when I wear it
That it's a cry for fashion help...


This is addicting. I need to stop.

She was a stinky girl
Lost in an odorous garment
She was a lousy dresser
Immersed in pit-stained polyester
She would have preferred
Brown, black, pink, and funeral frocks
But that's alright
She has that black dress

She had a blind womans sense of fashion
She makes our eyes hurt
She's got a million bucks
But won't buy new threads
She's had a few hard times
Sometimes it blows her mind
Those dresses she never tried on
Sometimes she wonders what they'd look like...

LOVE the Goodbye Blackdress versions that are up already, but it's such a great song, it can afford a third:

Don't take away my power
To dress myself in this
And make my shape like an hourglass
Since meals of carbs went shattering past
My shrunk ass
Like a surround-sounded exercising Trekkie

And I who went to sing onstage
Spun around in black, thinking it would still be the rage
You'll close your eyes and travel past
To the Buckingham-Nicks and Dance covers' contrast
And the words you heed every ten years or so
Find a new way to dress

Goodbye Blackdress
It's time your hem was raising
Don't flatter me
But my calves crowds will be praising
You were with me ALL the time
I'll let fans burn you today

And I who still wore the dress to brood
Woke up in the nude with Lindsey's 1973 attitude
And I who never, never did show skin
Let this rag slip away

Goodbye Blackdress...

- Jake

I remember him
His sense of style not strong
No one dressed like him
He was someone

And I carried on like I couldn’t stop
You need to change your clothes, baby
And you, you stood in my way
Stood between me and my shawl

It was my sin, it was my shame
You were unconscious to the pain we were in
I hear there’s trouble in your closet down the hall…

I remember the dress,
I remember the throw
Show me the way back…
To the closet…

No one looked
As I walked by
My sense of style
Could make a baby cry

Y’said “don’t do it!”
Again and again…
First he took my shawl,
Then he ran

No one knows
How I feel
Just because I wear
Polka-dots with lines
One man walked away from me
He took one look at me
And ran for home!

Stand back, stand back!

In the middle of my room
I could not dress like you
Its all right, its all right….
We’ll go to Sacks in good time…
(Sacks in good time…)
Sacks in good time…
There’s a Sale!

(Sale, sale, sale, sale, sale, sale, sale, sale, sale, sale, sale)

OK. I've decided that we really need to record this album. I think it's got hit potential.

And if all else fails, next time Edge of 17 rolls around at a concert, we can hand her copies of the album, and maybe when she listens to it, something might finally click???

I still vote singing telegram.
Or hey, since she watches American Idol, maybe next week's theme can be "Stevie Nicks songs that have been adjusted to persuade her to stop dressing matronly and penniless."
