I Might As Well Face It, I'm Addicted to Tom

 Addicted to Love, Robert Palmer, 1985



Addicted to Tom
Chompstick's Version, 2016



Your scenes are on, but you're not home
The Blacklist is not your own
Your body sweats, my heart breaks
Another show is what it takes

I can't sleep, I can't eat [I wish!]
There's no doubt, I'm in deep
My throat is tight, I can't breathe
Another show is all I need

Whoa, I like to think that I'm immune to the stud, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say I can't get enough
You know I'm gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to Tom

I can't take, one more payphone
It's time you find a new home

Baby Agnes and all her cryin'

She's not for you, you're all mine, a one track mind


I can't be saved 
"Redemption" is all I crave
The star will be my Tom
Without this show, I can't stay calm

Whoa, I like to think that I'm immune to the stud, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say I can't get enough
You know I'm gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to Tom

Might as well face it, I'm addicted to Tom
Might as well face it, I'm addicted to Tom
Might as well face it, I'm addicted to Tom
Might as well face it, I'm addicted to Tom

Cute and clever parody! Very fitting for your swan song. Someone needs to send this to Ryan Eggold.

Chompstick - you are truly a brilliant creative talent! Your muse, TomJacob, will continue to inspire you to greatness!

No words can ever say how titillatingly refreshing your creative genius has been! Clever as Raymond, you are, and full of mirth!

Bravo! Bravo!

Chomps,

All morning I've been singing "Refugee" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. But after reading this ode of love for Tom, I'm just singing your praises!
Another good one.

I saw Robert Palmer in concert once. Always liked his style.

Brilliant work, Chompstick!!! I will miss these! But right now I'm too busy laughing. :-D
