Oops! I Took Too Much

Author’s Note: Meta/filk written in 2002 for FF.net. A shameless bit of harmless silliness that got caught in the crossfire of FF’s ever-changing rules.


Melissa (aka the author): “Come on, Nick. Pleeeease do this parody for me.”
Nick (aka the muse): “Uh-uh… no way.”
Melissa: “But Nick, you’re my best Muse! Please don’t let me down!”
Nick: “Absolutely not.”
Melissa: “You afraid it’ll offend your dignity… er something?”
Nick: “Well I don’t want to look like an @$$…”
Melissa: “You won’t, mon chevalier. I promise.”
Nick: “Your French is improving. But my answer is still no.”
Melissa: “Awww! Come on!”
Nick: “Not after you made me parody The Beat Goes On… the Britney Spears version!”
Melissa: “Ok, so that wasn’t one of my better parodies…”
Nick: “And Ja Rule… and Caddillac Tah… and Chayanne… *and* Twenty II…”
Melissa: “What about the Eminem parody?”
Nick: “Actually, that one was quite good! Especially the part about me kicking Angel’s @$$.”
Melissa: “Well, the people on the ascifi.com bboards thought the other parodies were rather good too…”
Nick: “Well, that’s them.”
Melissa: “Geez, you’re a tough critic! You were never this tough on my fanfic.”
Nick: “Well your fanfics are usually serious…”
Melissa: “What about the commercial?”
Nick: “Well…”
Melissa: “You enjoyed it ‘cos you got to play ‘search & seizure’ with Nat. Don’t lie! Admit it!”
Nick: “Well, I…”
Melissa: “That wasn’t at all serious. Sure I had to convince Nat to play with it, at first. But after she started, she got really into it. I didn’t come up with the line about ‘getting off on good behaviour’! She did!”
Nick: “She *did*?!?”
Melissa: “Uh-huh!”
Nick: “Wow… you think you know somebody…”
Melissa: “Why are we talking about Nat? We should be talking about you…. doing *my* parody!”
Nick: “Unless it’s for a noble cause, I wanna know what’s in it for me.”
Melissa: “What could be a more noble cause than making people laugh?”
Nick: “Saving gay baby whales from getting nuked.”
Melissa: “Hardy-har-har. Everybody’s a comedian. I’m writing all of this down, by the way.”
Nick: “So people can see how crazy you are?”
Melissa: “No… so people can see how dedicated we fanfic writers are to the characters who become our muses. Now please…. do the parody.”
Nick: “But I don’t *want* to.”
Melissa: “God, you’re such a diva sometimes. Okay then, what can I do to convince you to do the parody?”
Nick: “Complete Sins Of The Father.”
Melissa: “All right… but only *after* I get my parody.”
Nick: “All right.”
Melissa: “Good. Great. Now. Start.”

Mmmhmm, mmhmm (mmm yeah)
Mmmhmm, mmhmm

Mmmhmm, mmhmm (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Mmmhmm, mmhmm (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Can’t believe it happened again
I took too much
Brought your life to an end
Ooh baby
I didn’t mean to lose control
But it seems that I
Won’t ever know
To keep the beast from
Destroying all my mortal loves
Ooh baby baby

Oops! I took too much
It’s just one of those things
That make immortality suck
Ooh baby baby
Oops! Love really bites
When you live at night
I’m just so sick of this

You see my problem is this
I can’t stop myself
To play it safe, it’s impossible with a kiss
Every night seems to get longer
And the hunger
Keeps getting stronger
Got to keep the beast from
Destroying all my mortal loves
Baby oh

Oops! I took too much
It’s just one of those things
That make immortality suck
Ooh baby baby
Oops! Love really bites
When you live at night
I’m just so sick of this

Mmmhmm, mmhmm (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Mmmhmm, mmhmm (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah…)

Melissa: “What the…? Why’d you stop?”
Nick: “Well this is the breakdown where there’s supposed to be talking.”
Melissa: “Oh yeah… I forgot. It’s been such a long time since I’ve heard this song.”
Nick: “Why don’t you go back and listen to it?”
Melissa: “Nick, I hate to break it to ya, but I only parody songs I really hate or really love.”
Nick: “I’m guessing this is not one of the songs you really love.”
Melissa: “Damn straight. Now finish up. We’re in the home stretch.”

Oops! I took too much again
Immortality sometimes sucks oh baby
Oops! Love bites at night
I’m just so sick of this

Oops! I took too much
It’s just one of those things
That make immortality suck
Ooh baby baby
Oops! Love really bites
When you live at night
I’m just so sick of this

Oops! I took too much
It’s just one of those things
That make immortality suck
Ooh baby baby
Oops! Love really bites
When you live at night
I’m just so… sick of this

Melissa: “Bravo! Bravo!”
Nick: “Thank you.”
Melissa: “Ya see, that wasn’t so bad, now was it?”
Nick: “Not really. Just don’t ever make me parody Britney again!”
Melissa: “Erm… actually… I was kinda hoping that next time you would parody Baby One More Time.”
Nick: “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
