The Lyrics

i'm a-gonna raise a fuss and i'm gonna raise a holler
cause there won't be any fireworks, even though i'd pay top dollar
well, today i called the town hall, thought they'd give me a break
mayor said , "no dice, son, you'll have to burn snakes."
wish it was winter, cause its way overdue
and there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

oh well, my ma and papa told me that they didn't find it funny
that a kid was screwin' 'round and blew his fingers off last sunday
they tried to sew them back on, but they just wouldn't stick
he just didn't know that the fuse would burn so quick
it was a blunder and now he's really screwed
and there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

my uncle jim and ned were saddened by our deprivation
they went in search of fireworks in a nearby latin nation
they got busted by a deputy and he said, quote :
"we're takin' you to jail, cause its contraband you tote."
no fiery thunder...guess snakes will have to do
and there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I'm not sure why snakes come in different colors, when the ash is still black. I'm writing 555 with a sparkler for you!

Brilliant. This was a great parody, ALvin. It followed the original like the original. Well done.
