"Puff, My Ass is Draggin"

Parody Written by:

Royce & Pippin

The Lyrics

special thanks to Pippin for working on this with me; it started out as
a fragment and ended up a parody
Puff, my ass is draggin', it's 103
I'd like to lick some autumn mist
Or to frolick in the sea
Little humid vapors floating through the sky
I'm melting down like candle wax
One hundred ten, the high

Yo! Huff, my mast is flaggin', livid was me
I wandered into Johnny's Bar
And drank 3 Long Island teas
Thought I saw a dragon, type, undefined
Is it the heat, or this here drink
That's got me mad and blind?

This weather, me unravels
Losing hope, I'm feeling frail
lacking clouds, the sky I searched
For stuff like rain or hail
Humid air, it drenches
And drops run down my nose
If this keeps up I'll go on home
And change into new clothes

Puff, my ass is draggin', it's 103
Id like to lick some autumn mist
Or be fondled by the sea
Buffed, but sadly saggin', this I decree
I find it hard now to exist
In extreme humidity

A dragon has his fire
And I've got my own toys
"kini watching on the beach
I'd say's a special joy
But last night it happened
The newspaper said no more
We'll have a little autumn
And only 94!

The forecast for tomorrow
A little cooling rain
I'll go bowling and I'll slay
Some pins along the lane
Dream of leaves of autumn
Yellow, red and gold
No more weeds, no grass to cut
And see no more nasty mold!

Puff, my ass was draggin', twas 103
I made it through the summer, though
With the help of booze and tea
Huff, my mast was flaggin, no summer breeze
i'm looking for some cooler air
About 65 degrees!

I can empathize. We had a multiday heat wave here, most of which I was fortunate to have missed 'cause I was traveling.

This parody's so cool it's hot. We've had a remarkably mild summer here in New England (so far...could still get a heat wave!).

Having lived in parts of the US where triple-digit heat waves are common in summer, I can definitely understand the feeling behind this parody. 5's all the way...

Royce collaborated with Pippin? Does this mean that... Royce knows?

I can certainly relate this to Sydney summer scorchers. Good job.

No less than I'd expect from such an illustrious partnership. Care to send some of that weather over here?

Ah! Go away for a two week holiday and Royce steals my girl. Boy. Whatever. Hee hee. Good job you two - love the bad 'postrophe in the bridge! :-D

Good one. Now, it is dry winds and heat. Wait for the Great Pumpkin.

Merry--hope you had a nice trip; Pippin made it clear to me that I was no replacement for you......

Not sure how I missed it, but this is an excellent collaboration - particularly liked the results of the 3 Long Island teas.

After 4 years, this parody still stands out!
