This time the newly written lyrics are to the beat of Toni Braxton’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough” and the new title is “She Wasn’t Greek Enough” – something that I am accused of daily…
Excuse the rude bits!
So I came across a fantastic website of Greek jokes and found this Greek parody of TLC’s hit song “No Scrubs“. Excuse the swear words, but it is absolutely hilarious!
