The Lyrics

This song like all others is available for free listen at My Page and of course all my songs are there or at my personal all parodists welcome Parody Recording Site
Didn't get 'em in New Orleans
Couldn't earn them in St. Louis either
Tired of begging in the evening
I'm not too modest, but I'm scared of showing
and this is how you can earn beads

This is how you can earn beads
If I just drop my pants
This is how you can earn beads
'Cause I don't have no breasts

It's not that I'm embarrassed
Scared that they'll say they're sorry
Now I start to shake and
The whole Avenue has been clapping
and I drop them, lift my shirt
My pride is swallowed as I show my whistle
Beads were wrapped 'round my head
and I felt like an airhead

yeah, yeah, yeah, oh no
yeah, yeah, yeah, oh no

Next year I felt like a champ
I said I'd earn 'em and I swear I still do
It's not like it's just a new fad
But showing pee-wee almost damn near killed you

and This is how I will earn beads
'Cause I'm not gonna bend
This is how I will earn beads
Mardi Gras I'm dropping

It's not like I'm a nudist
I didn't want to show it to be honest
This time someone's filming
Guys Gone Wild had caught me whoring
Now my Mom's mad, so's my Dad
and my ad is shown on every channel
Wrapped my beads 'round my head
My family said I'm not their bred

yeah, yeah, yeah, oh no
yeah, yeah, yeah, oh no
yeah, yeah, yeah, oh no
yeah, yeah, yeah, oh no

I never did understand them
Purple, yellow, green beads I'm wearing
and I guess that I have earned them

I guess that I have earned them

I guess that I have earned beads
but I'm not done just yet
I guess that I have earned beads
but why am I obsessed

It's not like I am crazy
I was drunk 'cause I drank some bubbly
Don't think I drank Burban
Just one drip and my body's shaking
and I'm headstrong, sometime's dumb
Should've bought 'em at the Dollar General
'Cause the beads 'round my head
Make me look so brain dead

yeah, yeah
I am not an inbred

yeah, yeah
Swear I'm not a butt-head

yeah, yeah
Tired of trying instead

I hate to be honest, but it's not one of my favorite recordings by you, still the song is pretty darn good. 5 strings of beads for you!!!

Meriadoc--thanks as always. . .you know I strongly value your opinion and always will. I'll let you know when they release the video:) Matthias--don't hate that, I record a lot of parodies, and you can only have a few favorite or they aren't your favorites, the fact you gave it 5s means you still liked the work, and if 555 isn't among your favorites, that means you just gave me one HECK of a compliment, especially considering the source giving it--a respected competitor among the parody contests and a genuine host.
