Anyway, this song wasn't popular when I was in high school---I'm not THAT old--it was already considered an "oldie." So I adopted it as my theme song and found a 45 of it (raise your hand if you remember 45s, old folks. But don't hurt yourselves) and I played it on the record player all the time. Sometimes I would play it and walk into the room tossing my hair, like the opening credits of the television show I starred in in my mind.
EVERYONE KNEW "Build me up, Buttercup" was my song. Truthfully, I felt like I owned it. And people should have asked my permission to borrow it.
They totally stole it and gave it to Cameron Diaz. As if she needed to take my theme song when she probably has a long line of bands ready, willing, and able to write one for her. Good bands, too...like Aerosmith. I'll bet if she called Steven Tyler and said something like "Hey, Steve! How's it goin'?" Then, of course, she'd giggle because she's famous for that. "This is Cameron...Cameron Diaz. Yeah, I'm doing pretty good." Of course she is! She's tall and thin and blonde and has great teeth and a zillion dollars and could date anyone in the world. I mean, hay-seuss. "Steve, I was wondering if y'all could get together and write me a theme song. You know, something using my name. Like 'Cam...damn! You look fine' or something. I'd really appreciate it. I'm feeling the need for a theme song, and I think you'd guys could just whip one up. Thanks. See ya!"
The bi+#h took mine.
I know you're waiting on pins and needles to see if I meet Cameron Diaz for a smackdown in the parking lot. Stay tuned!
