The Lyrics

Its always good to get a womans point of view !!
Come listen to a story about a man named Fred,
He had a little women that he hit in the head,
When she came to, he wouldn't let her leave,
So she picked up the phone and called the police.

Handcuffs that is, cop cars-lawyers

Well the next thing ya know ole Freds in jail,
His kin folk said " We can't make your bail "
Fred said "What the heck am I gonna do"?
They said "Make friends 'cause your in for a few".

Years that is, repeat - offender

Well Fred its time to say goodbye to your big screen TV
Your tools and your computer and all your DVDs,
Everything that Fred had, she sold with no remorse,
She took a trip, got fake boobs and paid for their divorce !

Freedom that is, sweet - revenge

Ya'll be nice now, y'hear?.

I personally found this hysterical as it (sort of) described my first marriage to a guy named Fred! (I didn't get the boobs, but I got to keep the kid!)

As someone whose name IS Fred, I am VERY offended by this one, because I don't believe in EVER treating a woman like that under ANY circumstances. Take it down -- NOW!
