If Lyrics Were Real...

  On our trip to KC, Andrew discovered Herman's Hermits.  And we listened to the CD for hours.  And yes, some of us were pretty sick of it.  Like, a lot.
  Needless to say, these songs have been stuck in my head for over a week.  Last night I laughing so hard as I was thinking of the song "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter."  I was imagining what would happen if this actually happened.  Below are the lyrics, along with what I imagine the other part of the conversation going:
Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter (Yes, thank you so much, Herman.)
Girls as sharp as her are something rare (Is there something I can do to help you?)
But it's sad, she doesn't love me now (Yes, she mentioned that the two of you had broken up...)
She's made it clear enough, it ain't no good to pine (Ok, yeah.  Maybe you should talk to her about this...)
She wants to return those things I bought her (Oh, okay.  I can take them for you.)
Tell her she can keep them just the same (Ok, I'll let her know, but please move your foot so I can close the door...hello?)
Things have changed, she doesn't love me now (Sweetheart.  Can I call someone for you?  You seem a tad unhinged.)
She's made it clear enough, it ain't no good to pine (*dials Herman's parents)
Walkin' about
Even in a crowd, well
You'll pick her out
Makes a bloke feel so proud (But honey, you aren't dating anymore...)
If she finds that I've been 'round to see you
Tell her that I'm well and feelin' fine
Don't let on, don't say she's broke my heart
I'd go down on my knees but it's no good to pine (*dials police)

That's funny -- I haven't thought about that song for a long time. But what's really funny is that you actually have a CD of their music? I liked that song when I was a teen. It was part of the British invasion.
