The Lyrics

Inspired by a true story. A kid at my school, who got sent to juvie for taking pills, stole about $3,000 from his employer, who just happened to be like, one of the nicest guys ever. And the dude never found out! Oh, did I mention the kid's a wigger? That's where the second verse ties in here...
Now the theif told his stoner friends
We gotta get some friggen dough!
So we can get some pills today
Or maybe even some blow!
The boss he turned his trustful back
He went out for just a while
He never should have trusted
A kid fresh from juvenile!

Relieved his wallet -
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox
Relieved his wallet -
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox

Now over at the rap show
Oh they're really packing in
The 'hardcore' say it's cool
To dig this gankin' thing
And like this kid told his "homies"
He was straight ghetto now
Cause he made off with;
From his boss, a tight "three thou'"!

Relieved his wallet -
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox
Relieved his wallet -
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox

The punk called up his gang of hoods
He said "you wanna have some fun?"
Drop your nines and you "weed ciggarettes"
And then we'll make a run!

As soon as the boss man was outta his hair
This pill-popping kid was stealing his own share
As soon as the boss man was outta his hair
The pill-popper bailed...

Relieved his wallet -
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox
Relieved his wallet -
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox

Relieved his wallet -
(Probation, he will risk it!)
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox
Relieved his wallet -
(Fresh from juvie, and white chocolate!)
Robbing the cashbox
Rob the cashbox...
Yeah this is all just a story, just my exaggaration of some story he told us about stealing his boss' money, so I took it from there. In case you're wondering, I'm white, so nothing here against anybody of any color at all. I just stated that in case lines like "white chocolate" and "wigger" etc. made you think I hated whiteys haha. But no, I'm a big supporter of equal rights and tolerance. Except for emo kids and wiggers hahahaha

Some Internet music service recently produced a commercial involving misheard lyrics, with characters almost singing your parody lines. You probably did it first, and finished it all to boot! I have to complain though, that private stories and in-jokes usually don't make terribly funny songs.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
