Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

O show me a home
where the buffalo roam,
and I'll show you a messy house
which would be a deathtrap
for a dog or a cat,
but just might be fit for a mouse.

Home, this home's deranged
where the beer and the cantaloupe lay,
the walls nearly fell,
and the floor looks like hell,
and the foul odor drifts far away.

The red wine's no more,
it's all over the floor
with bottle shards strewn 'cross the way.
This house is a mess,
causes me great distress
but I don't think that FEMA will pay!

Home, this home's deranged
where the beer and the cantaloupe lay,
the walls nearly fell,
and the floor looks like hell,
And the foul odor drifts far away.

But what can a cantaloupe say?

(ABC3-T) No buffalo here, but my apartment's a mess too. I think I'll hum this on the way home.

(ABC3-T) More verses would've been welcome, but short and sweet will do.

(ABC3-T) I was hoping for more, too. This was great,especially the "but I don't think that FEMA will pay!" line. 5s, 5s, for McVey!
