about

inspired by: "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

lyrics

I am a handsome man
and you’re a handsome lady
oh won’t you take my hand
but only for one dance
then I’ll ignore you
pretend you don’t exist
feel free yak about
my lack of social skills
so disagreeable

200 pages in
you still don’t know my first name
I know you’re not to blame
ms. Austen help me out
it is Fitzwilliam
the master of Pemberley
You may remember me as the man who’ll take you down

Darcy’s in the house
I weigh ten thousand pounds
are you gonna marry me
we’re gonna find out

Too many sisters in the room
driving me crazy
especially Katie
Judy Mary Dawn and Amy
Sleep on the floor for ten years
stomp on my head
it won’t wake me up
my mom can wash my hair
it won’t wake me up

You think that I’m a jerk
well I find this surprising
I know you’ll come around
and I’ve known it from the start
Standing in front of me
making a mockery
your mom would not agree with the way you use that mouth
mama said knock you out
Mrs Bennet said knock you out

One day we’ll laugh about
refusing my proposal
and how you hated me
and all my stupid guts
You are my future
my lovely creature
my pride is champion
while your prejudice is dumb
