Parody Song Title:

"Hippie From Mississippi"

Parody Written by:

Red Neck Mother

The Lyrics

My cousin Pam said I was the best french kisser in the family
I don't smoke marijuana, 'less I got some
I've never rolled a joint...in my sleep
I've never smoked a doobie... down at the courthouse
And I hardly ever make love, to cows or sheep

Chorus

I'm just an old hippie from Mississippi
A place with red-neck cops in the Klu Klux Klan
Where gonorrhea is a family tradition
And for most of us third grade was a five year plan

Now we can make a party out of damn near nothin'
Whisky, wine, or beer and airplane glue
I hate it when there ain't nothin' left in the baggie
I guess this tiny roach is gonna have to do

Repeat chorus

Now I ain't growin' marijuana in my garden
Them big weeds just sprung up between the rows of corn
But don't go sprayin' my weeds with Round-Up
I'll make you regret the day that you were born

I'm just an old hippie from Mississippi
A place with red-neck cops in the Klu Klux Klan
And the definition of relative humidity
Is the sweat dripping off-a-you onto your cousin Pam

Great writing! It reminds me of Jim Stafford's song Wildwood Weed.

Funny take on this old Merle tune, but don't let me see you smoking up my courthouse.

Merle, we don't...yet. Just some dog/cat half-breeds so far.

Love joke parodies. Glad to see another out here. I write them occassionally myself. Heard the joke before but it still caught me a bit by surprise. I was on the next to the last line and I said, no, he ain't gonna do that. Then I LOLed. I got to enjoy the joke all over again in this great parody form. Well done Red Neck. As Alvin put it, "wonderfully sick!" 5's for your efforts.

Jan, I would love to hear the wino from Tenino if you have it done. It sounds like a hoot. Thanks to you and Guy for your comments and votes.

A hippie from Mississippi? Don't tell Trent Lott, he's liable to pull his helmet off. You mean that's actually hair?

I suppose you're a tree hugging hippie, cuz your family tree is straight! Quality stuff here and heaps of potential for further work. Get crackin'! ;)

Most welcome. Have you done any other parodies? The Search program isn't as easy to navigate with the whole Google thing.
Dominic L. - April 15, 2005 - Report this comment
It's funny... Never heard the original though, so I don't know how well it matches the timing. I like hippies, but don't care for rednecks by the way
Jim - March 11, 2006 - Report this comment
Parodies are nice if they are tasteful and convey the same spirit as the original. Merle was writing about real life in real towns with real people who are working and pulling their weight while wondering why people like you criticize and mock decency and still take advantage of a system that allows your perverted take on life.

This is an old song from the 70's first done by Brentwood Rocker, a band on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, playing at Fiesta at the Fiesta. One we sang all the time as a teen.

If the things you say about these certain weren't factual then your parody wouldn't be this good! Music is supposed to be an expression of your ideas, hopes, dreams, observations of what you see around you, etc. - that's a Zen exercise for you! Keep it up.
