I'm not stuttering, I'm just being unoriginal and redundant.

I recently went to a poetry reading and did this piece that I wrote years ago. 2004 seems like so long ago. When I first wrote it there were lyrics from the 80s-00s. I reworked it to incorporate more lyrics, and to have them be almost entirely 90s. Anyway, for those of you that haven't been reading my blog for the last decade . . .

Radio Gaga

Stop, collaborate and listen, We’re back with a brand new poem
Pack it up, pack it in, let us begin.

Hi! My name is.. (what?) My name is.. (who?)
My name is.. [wicca wicca] the 90s.
Say your name. Say your name.  

I had no choice but to hear you. You stated your name time and again.

Breaking my back just to know your name
Everything’s made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am

I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world
I’m made of plastic. It’s fantastic
Sometimes I feel like I don’t have a partner.
Sometimes I feel like my only friend.
So 1,2,3, take my hand and come with me

Can’t touch this!
Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me
I’m a little bit of EVERYTHING, all rolled into one

I’m blue.
She's got a hottie body, but her attitude is potty
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, 

I like big butts, and I cannot lie.  
If you want MY body and you think I'M sexy
come on sugar let me know.

That don't impress me much
So you got the looks but have you got the touch

I'm too sexy for my hat
Too sexy for my hat what do you think about that?
How do you like me now?

I want something else to get me through this, semi-charmed kind of life.
All I want to do is have some fun
I have a feeling that I’m not the only one

Girls.  All I really want is girls.
I’ll be there for you

Girls don’t like boys, girls like cars and money.

The more money we come across, the more problems we see.
I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
 Crash into me

If you wanna be with me,baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
I don’t want no scrubs

Just the two of us we can make it if we try
I need your arms around me, I need to feel your touch.  I need your understanding, I need your love so much

I don’t believe that anybody, feels the way you do about me now.
Can you feel the love tonight?

Look into my eyes, you will see what you mean to me.
There’s nothing I can do. I only want to be with you

Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
I want it that way

If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends
Make it last forever, friendship never ends.

Hey, come on, try a little, nothing is forever
Heeeyyy... Yaaaaaaa.. (Don't want to meet your daddy)
Heeyy Yaaaaaaaa.. (Just want you in my Caddy)

You stupid girl, you stupid girl.
I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes,
I saw the sign,

This love has taken its toll on me
I just want to fly.
If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away

My sweater is on backwards and inside out.
I wanna push you around, I will, I will  

Chill out, What you yellin for?
Give me a sign, Hit me baby one more time

mmmBOP (gets hit)

I get knocked down, but I get up again 
That’s me in the corner, that’s me in the spotlight
I’m here to remind you of the mess you made when you went away

Quit playin' games with my heart   
I’m just a girl
Take me as I am, that may mean you have to be a stronger man.

I’m a loser baby
I feel stupid, and contagious
I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo

Don't speak  I know just what you're saying 
Don't tell my heart, my achy breaky heart
I just don't think it'd understand

Oops!...I did it again
I played with your heart, got lost in the game
Girl, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
Closer than my peeps you are to me

It's been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side and said "I'm angry"
Do you believe in life after love?

Lovin is what I got,
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for.
You were meant for me and I was meant for you 

I've been a bad bad girl
I've been careless with a delicate man
Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass 

This kiss, this kiss (unstoppable)

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?


You’re all I ever wanted

You’re all I ever needed

(in unison)
And I E, I, Will Always Love You
