The Lyrics

You ain't nothin' but a groundhog
HIdin' all the time
You ain't nothin' but a groundhog
HIdin' all the time
Well, you ain't nothin' but a varmit
And you ain't gonna see sunshine

When they said you saw your shadow
Well, you ran back down your hole
When they said you saw your shadow
Meant six more weeks of cold
Should have covered up your hollow
So you would not see sunshine

This actually came out in the 50s, so it should have gone in misc.

But it was a really good parody, I give you a perfect score.

I may have mentioned this before, but I'll say it again: That damn rodent makes me rethink my position on gun control.

Wake me up from a sound sleep, pull me out of a hole, naked by by back legs - I'll give you more than six more weeks of winter.

Hey, Jeffaroo, you should record this and send it out to a bunch of morning-show DJs at the end of next January. It's just silly, short, and topical enough to get some airplay.

(FEB SOTM) - Jeff, I thought you shorted this a repeat of the first verse. But it was very well done. 4-5-4. Apologies if I am incorrect about the song length...

Short but sweet...

Meh, you've done a lot better, but then again I just so happened to have seen 'Groundhog's Day' recently, so I'll cut you a break. Nice and short one, Jeff.

Merry, if I ever take Spaff's advice and record it, can I borrow your line from the first comment? =)
