The Lyrics

He banged Moe's pate with a misaimed ballpeen hammer,
While they were building.

"Bet that hurt!"

"No lie!!"

Moe's hand response wasn't
As graceful as tai chi.
He brusquely pried, yeah,
He brusquely pried
Curly's eyeballs.

Then Moe said to Larry:
"Porcupine, let me borrow
That saw hanging uselessly
At your side."

The voice of reason, Larry
Pleads, "Oh, just let him be!"
Then somewhere, Moe's hand is moving,
To make Larry much less hairy.

While Moe brawled,
All Larry could do was stammer.
Curly was building up to sock Moe's eye.
But his blow glanced
Off Moe and clocked Larry
Was he surprised? yeah!
Innocent guy
Who took the fall.

Now they're all beat up from this juvenile cavorting.
Some eyes are swollen, and they're all in pain.
Moe's in range of Larry's head,
So he takes a grinder,
And it starts to whine, yeah,
As he grinds off a lot more hair.

"Please, Moe! Nair!"

Hey, I just noticed, JB, that you snuck over the 300-posted-parodies-mark when I wasn't looking! Congratulations! Carry on, Barry John!

Nyuk nyuk nyuk. Sound of three 5's clicking. Love the stooges, and love this too. High fives across the board John!

Taking JABs at the Stooges, eh? Slowly I turn over three fives. John, this is great! Looking to do this OS and found it. Not sure I should do it now. Jerk! :-)
