The Lyrics

This parody is my first concerning the "Leave It to Beaver" show. It is about Ward's annoying braggart co-worker Fred Rutherford that constantly is giving Ward parenting advice as a father and bragging about his children Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford and Violet Rutherford. Clarence was at first a bully to the Cleaver boys but made friends with Wally. At home Fred calls him "a boob" for his stupidity. Violet Rutherford is always looked upon as being more talented and braver than the Beaver. Ward has to work with Fred in Mayfield and that is usually enough to provoke him. But when Fred shows up unannounced at the Cleaver home with advice or putting Ward's sons down, he gets uptight. But he never loses his temper nor composure. Ward loves his boys and that's all that counts in the end...
Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
Yeah, Ward is annoyed alright
He is always bragging
About his “great” kids day and night

It’s best they spend time apart
But Fred shows up after dark
He really should mind his own business
As a father

Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight

[Chorus]
Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
His lectures are best left ignored
Fred always thinks he is right
Ward needs to show him right to the door

M-m-m-Makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, Ward uptight
Oh, m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes Ward uptight

Home, Fred calls his son “a boob”
Tells Ward Wally could improve
And when push comes to shove
Poor Ward’s had enough
Of his co-worker

Fred just gets Ward so upset
About Clarence and Violet
Puts Beaver and Wally down
Spreads rumors all over town
He’s a liar

Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight

Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
His lectures are best left ignored
Fred always thinks he is right
Ward needs to show him right to the door

M-m-m-Makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, Ward uptight
Oh, m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes Ward uptight

[Bridge]
Ward is no fool
He just plays it cool
At work or at home his temper he’ll never lose
Ward loves his sons and they love him back
So nothing Fred says ever matters in his attacks
Back to Mayfield’s “The Salt Mines” where Fred and Ward work
Now Ward won’t lose his patience just because
Fred's a jerk

Ward loves his two sons
And Fred only has one…

Fred R. sure makes Ward uptight
His lectures are best left ignored
Fred always thinks he is right
Ward needs to show him right to the door

M-m-m-Makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, Ward uptight
Oh, m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes Ward uptight
Oh, m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes, m-m-m-makes Ward uptight

Fred R. sure makes Ward
Makes Ward
Fred R. sure makes Ward
Makes Ward
Very, very uptight
Uptight

Gee Wally, Rob's right. Lumpy and his dad really are a couple of creeps.
