The Lyrics

Mauri Povich that is.....Number 5 in my "How to dismantle an atomic bomb" album parody. This one was the hardest yet.
I'm 'round the corner from the salvation army
My sister sells me dope
I'm under a bridge in a paper hut
And it's the place I call my home

One step closer to Mauri
One step closer to Mauri

NOt male nor female but at the intersection
I have no thingy and I have no *blank*!
Slept with my cousin
BY the nuclear plant
And at night her skin starts glowing

One step closer to Mauri
One step closer to Mauri
One step closer to Mauri
Mauri Mauri

I'm hanging out to dry
with no more booze
Carpets turned brown in the spot where spot poos
But a trailer house
is a trailer home
I can hear the cheers and boos!

One step closer to Mauri
One step closer to Mauri
One step closer to Mauri
To Mauri to Mauri to Mauri

Funny, and much more interesting than the original... I thought this song was one of the weaker ones from the new album.
