Parker Posey

these are the lyrics to my new song Parker Posey. it's written from the perspective of an (asshole) writer / director who's pitching a movie to Parker, the one he feels will transform her from an indie goddess to a mainstream success. his intentions are good, but it becomes somewhat of a back -handed flattery. the song is in 4/4, key of F# Minor-

Parker Posey, this is your movie
I know how believable you'll be
that's why you landed the lead
it's Pretty Woman meets Clockwork Orange
it's Parker...

I told the casting team
"You don't get her, you don't get me"
Mmm, we shoot this fall
one month in Montreal
it's cheaper than the states...

Alan Arkin as your widower father
Mary Tyler Moore is his beautiful neighbor
You play a daughter with an eating disorder
starving herself cuz she misses her mother
Parker Posey, this is your movie
Parker Posey, this is your movie

Parker, are you listening to me?
Posey, this is your movie
There's only one rape scene
(it happens in a dream)
Parker...

I'd say as indies go
you stole Suburbia
and Best In Show
No, I haven't seen
The House Of Yes
But then who has, or will unless
You can cough up an Oscar
and bump up your numbers

Alan Arkin is your widower father
Mary Tyler Moore, his beautiful neighbor
You are a daughter with an eating disorder
starving herself cuz she misses her mother
Parker Posey, this is your movie
Parker Posey, this is your movie

I know I can make you
a Minnie Driver
Move over
Wynona Ryder

(Refrain)
