The Lyrics

"I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay... I sleep all night and I work all day..."
Trees falling down
I'm yelling "Timber!"
Run through the woods
I got my axe
Don't need a knife
When sawing lumber
I'll make sawdust while wearing plaid

(Timber! Timber! Trees falling down!)
(Timber! Timber! Trees falling down!)

A lumberjack star, Uprootin' them all
That's why I'm employed just leavin' the trunks
Sycamore to Pines and Cypress they're chopped
Workin' with my saw I'm strong, Timber!
Knocked down, Roots shoot up, Timber!
That's the way we're paid to cut, Timber!
Woodcutter at the lumber mill
On logs that float we'll run for thrills, Timber!

Serve up flapjacks, I'll chomp down!
They're a delight when golden brown
Sleep on cots in cabins found
You'd think it bites, Not making mounds
So much danger must watch out!
Muscles aren't slight, Like a brick house (Oh oh oh)
Beards we've got, Sweat we're doused
Beavers we like just ask our spouse

Trees crashin' down
I'm yelling "Timber!"
Got massive wood
Like in our pants
The logging site
Is filled with lumber
Not done for fun but for paychecks

Pulled chainsaws out
We're yelling "Timber!"
Flora's removed
Won't stand a chance
Us manly guys
Are forest carvers
It's all true, hun, I ain't a hack!

(Timber! Timber! Trees falling down!)
(Timber! Timber! Trees falling down!)

Won't need suits and ties
Got spiked boots and back sprains
Sawin' down trees
This career's deranged
Workin' like hell getting low pay
Must be brave to be in our gang
Axe thumpin' like Bunyan now, Rolling!
All I need's a blue ox now, Strolling!
In syrup we'll drown, Why?
Cause you will hear our guts growl

Load that lumber pound by pound
Here in Quebec is where we're found
We speak French, That's that sound
Don't need a knife, To saws we're bound
We are loggers, Pines are downed
Getting in fights we're tightly wound (Oh, oh, oh)
Macho men are what we're crowned
Makin' that Maple hit the ground! (Go hit the ground!)

Trees fallin' down
I'm yellin' "Timber!"
You can't improve
This Lumberjack
We aren't well-liked
Hippies are angered
We've chopped a ton we are a threat

Trees fallin' down
I'm yellin' "Timber!"
Our jobs are screwed
That's in the past
Forests are blights
Done by clearcutters
Those lazy punks
Don't break a sweat

Woo-ooo-oood (Trees falling down!)
Woo-ooo-oood (Trees falling down!)
Woo-ooo-oood (Trees falling down!)
Woo-ooo-oood (Trees falling down!)

"Oh he's a lumberjack and he's OK..."--wood in their pants, chuckle chuckle! The countrified hiphop air works well with the topic for some reason. And you know I love keeping the OS title. Lucky security code 777, if it could only be your rating.

(Artistry) You definitely did a hell of a lot more with the concept of country-infused rap than Pitbull did (not that that's a big surprise, really). Fantastic parody, 555!

You know what they said about "Urban Jungle", how about cutting down the "Urban Woods"?

Nice work! I also laughed at the "wood in their pants" line as well as the "Hippies are angered". Pacing seemed to be spot on and you did a nice job stretching out the topic.

(Artistry) pacin was perfect, and I really liked the topic. You definitely made the most of your concept. The innuendos are what what this parody for me "Beavers we like just ask our spouse" ha! ;) security code: GUD and that's what this parody was! 555 totes of lumber.
