The Lyrics

Alternative title: The Seven-Or-So Habits Of Highly Effective Hobos/Tramps/Homeless People/Insert-Synonym-For-Hobo-Here.
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
Now put your hands up

Down in the dumps, real rotten luck
Addicted to all kinds o' drink
Classes are what you skipped
I don't know why you did
Seems that information passed by me
You up on drugs, walk up to me
And try to get my attention
I don't think that'll work, I'm not a jerk
That sis just what it seems

Cuz if you want it
Then you gotta make a sign for it
Really want it?
Then you gotta make a sign for it
You want cash?
Stalking people won't cut it
If you want it
Then you gotta make a sign for it

Wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh x2

Yeah, you want it
Think it's best you made a sign for it
Yeah, you need it
Think it's best you made a sign for it
Go for cash
Asking for booze won't cut it
Cash is needed
Think it's best you made a sign for it

Smell of booze on your breath, won't get no cheques
Stashed in ev'ry damn pocket in your jeans
Burps come up, then you throw up
You should cut back on the drink
I think I should mention, book a session
With "Anger Management Lessons"
Cuz you're low on dough
You really should know
Broken people won't hand out the green

You need some money
Think it's best you do not yell for it
Low on money
Think it's best you do not scream for it
Don't act mad
Angry or nuts, won't cut it
Money's needed
Think it's best you do not swear for it

Wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh x2

Need some money
Think it's best that you ask nice for it
Low on money
You should always ask polite for it
That make sense?
My grammar just won't cut it
Get the gist, the
Gen'ral drift, you should ask nice for it

Wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh x2

You've been handed the financial stick
But the rough end of it
But pull yourself together, don't yell at her
That girl over there who laughed at you
Held that ten buck bill at your face then pulled
She's a total bitch, let's move on!
Just 'cause you're forty-one
College ain't too late, no!
My Dad's in, you can get in
No longer sleep in a bin!

All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
All the homeless people
Sing it in chorus:

Wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh x2

Cuz if we want it
Then we gotta make a sign for it
Really want it?
Then we gotta make a sign for it
We want cash
Breaking people won't cut it
If we want it
Then we gotta make a sign for it
Wo oh ooh

We need some money
Think it's best that we don't yell for it
Low on money
Think it's best that we don't scream for it
Don't act mad
Angry or nuts, won't cut it
Money's needed
Think it's best that we don't swear for it
Wo oh ooh
I can't remember if I thought of this one whilst trying to sleep, shower or take a dump. Those are the three most likely places for me to come up with a parody idea, you know.

Reminds me of that South Park episode where they overtake the city moaning: "chaaaaange... chaaaaaange"

(Art) Ewww...Conqueror, I did not like this at all...I gave you 533 on this to be kind. I'm all for non_pc humor, but there was nothing funny about this at all. (not to mention much imagination in the repeated words or the ohohoh chants). You have done a lot better than this.

The pacing here was not as good as you usually do. This song is a tricky one to pace, and tricky to keep the humor running, unfortunately I think it caught you up a bit this time buddy. Homeless people can be a funny topic, but I don't think this quite hit where you were aiming.
