The Lyrics

Okay, I realize I'm butchering the song here, but when I first heard "Big Black Horse" I thought the lyrics were pretty goofy. Now I know what the lyrics are about, but it did give birth to this alco-parody. If anything doesn't make sense, please comment.
whee-hee! whee-hee!
whee-hee! whee-hee!

well, I was halfway junked, downed my eighteenth can
and I let the alcohol do all the talkin'
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)
the cafe morphed into a beach that hour
with a pink elephant and a sherry sea
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)
that pachyderm was tryna get dressed
I said "Yo, thick-back, you won't fit your stalkings"
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)
and the pink elephant just turned his trunk
and said, "hey, it's your baby I'm carrying"
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)

and I said "nooo!
nooo, no, no, no!"
I said "nooo!
tell me it's not from me"
"nooo!
nooo, no, no, no!"
I said "nooo!
tell me it's not from me"

and my liver was poisoned at the twentieth hour
so I spit it out after a wharf or two
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)
but I'd drank all vodkas and it sure had got fat
and it won't forgive me after all the beer
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)
so I sent it swimming to relieve its spirits
with the pink elephant in the sherry sea
(whee-hee! whee-hee!)
then I tapped its back, said "You're back to happy
you're clean of poison, now return to me!"

but it yelled "nooo!
nooo, no, no, no!"
it yelled "nooo!
yours ain't the bod for me"
"nooo!
nooo, no, no, no!"
it yelled "nooo!
yours ain't the bod for me"

"not the bod for me, yeah!"

(Celine Dion sings the Pakistan anthem in the background)

no, no, no
no, no
no, no
alcohol's not for me
no, no, no
no, no
no, no
I shoulda got root beer

pink elephants
and the sherry sea
delirium's not so bad
as the hangover will be
pink elephants
in a sherry sea
delirium's not so bad
as the hangover will be

Hey YAD, DKTOS but pretty funny. Reminds me for some reason of that South Park episode where Cartman saw pink Christina Aguilera dogs. Also, noticed your comments about vote wiping a parody. Any parody with the words "an error occured while processing this directive" next to the vote box will get wiped if you vote it. Those votes are actually already gone on the totals list for that author but still showed up on the parody. Here is the link for the full story:

Thank you, Red Ant. I had posted another comment on the votes erasing minutes ago, but now it's no longer required. So sorry if I sound nagging in the latest comments section above.

No, STC, I do believe "Big" is part of the title. The author got it right.
Cop Killer - March 22, 2006 - Report this comment
I take that back... the word "Big" may or may not appear in the title of TOS.

Just confirmed, "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" is the official title.
