Song Lyric re-write

Backstory:

My boyfriend and I were listening to the radio last Thursday when December 1963 (Oh What a Night) came on.  The following conversation ensued.

Me: Honey, in December 1963 you were a single cell hanging out in your mother's ovary.
Him:  Oh God, shut up.
Me: Well, you were. 
Him:  I don't want to think about this.
Me:  Can't you imagine?  One little solitary egg, hanging out, wondering whether this is the month you get rel...
Him: SHUT UP!
Me: ...eased.  Then, years later, you finally are, you go sliding down that fallopian tube.  And then you see it!  Sperm swimming towards you!  (At this point he put his hand over my mouth)
Him:  Shut up!  I don't want to think about my mothers reproductive organs!
Me, after prying his hand away: You know, it's a biological fact of life.
Him:  The thought of my parents having sex grosses me out.
Me:  Honey, your existence depends on the fact that your parents had sex. 
Him:  <shudder>
Me, after a pause:  I wonder if they did it doggie style?
Him:  Oh my god, SHUT UP!
Me:  <hysterical laughter>

So, the next day, I reworked the lyrics for December 1963 and emailed it to him.  Enjoy!

Oh, what a night
Late December back in '63
Hanging out in my mom’s ovary
As I wonder, is this the month

Oh, what a night
You know it wasn’t, but I played the game
Waiting for the time that it was me
Who got released, who got a chance

Oh I, I got a funny feeling as I slid down that tube
Yeah my, as I recall it ended much too soon

Oh, what a night
When my turn came, in seventy-six
When I saw the sperm swimming towards me
Sweet surrender, what a night        

I felt a rush like a rolling ball of thunder
Spinning my way down that tube, and taking the sperm in me
Oh, what a night

Oh I, I got a funny feeling as I slid down that tube
Yeah my, as I recall it ended much too soon

Oh what a night, why'd it take so long to see the light
Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right
I became a baby, what a night

Oh, I felt a rush like a rolling ball of thunder
Spinning my way down that tube, and taking the sperm in me
Oh what a night (parents do do it, do do do do it)
Oh what a night (They did did did it, did did did did it)
[repeat to fadeout]
