The Lyrics

I am just a door boy
And my underwear's so old
It's been laundered from existence
Just a stained and tattered remnant of a once new pair
All holes and trim
I can hold them up before my eyes
And watch T.V. through them
hmmmmmmm

When I lost my home and my family
I was so poor that a toy
Was a clump of many hangers
I'm not lying when you're orphaned baby fun is scarce
Reading Poe, peeking out from under covers
Lest the Raven somehow knows
Pecking at my face yea man that story blows
I would cry... cry and cry and cry and cry, I would cry
Cry and cry and cry and cry don't you know I cried

Now my shorts have many ages
But my oldest pair's named Bob
And he's gotten offers
Just some offers from the laundry up the avenue
They need some care, there are times when they get so loathsome
With pee and skid marks there
Riding high...ay yie yie yie yie yie yie, riding high
Ay yie yie yie yie yie yie, man they're riding high

Yea the shorts are riding up now
It's a wedgie just the same
They are older they are tattered they don't smell too good
Don't smell too good
My old underwear is tattered and it just don't smell too good
My old underwear sometimes don't smell too good

Now I'm praying for some cleaner drawers
And wishing I was done
Wearing rags
Cause these old shitty knickers are a chafing me
Chafing me, shitty rags

I am dreaming of some boxers
They are lighter by a shade
They don't carry no reminders
With no urine stains or skid marks
That look so gross when dried out
But my pangs remain the same
I can't wash em, I can't wash em
They'll dissolve down the drain
Riding high... Ay yie yie yie yie yie yie, riding high
Ay yie yie yie yie yie yie, man they're riding high

A little depressing...a little gross...but oh so good...

Well I gave you 5's-I'm bizarre and this parody is a bit bizarre.

15 rounds. Very well-crafted piece.
Johnny D - July 27, 2004 - Report this comment
On the surface, this parody is a foul, brown-stained, rancid ode to odiferous underwear. Below the surface, this parody reeks of the sweetly aromatic stench of unmitigated GENIUS. 5-5-5 !

Ashkickass, thanks; Royce Miller, I think bizarre is too gentle a word for what goes around and around in my brain, and comes out here; John Barry, thanks also; Johnny D.,"Rancid ode to odiferous underwear" cracked me up. Thank you for the kind comment.

Consider me a new fan, Dee, this was great! I lol at least four times. Incredibly well done!

Dude,thanks. Rod Worden, right back at you for the great "Sappy Together" you submitted today. It could have been written about a particular relationship in my own life, which is scary.

Meriadoc, thanks. Rod, thanks again, and tell your wife thanks also. Peregrin, thank you, and your comment is funny, but it is my real name. My hippie parents have a sense of humor, which is where I get mine from.

You are one of the newbies I'm happy to keep an eye on. Your first entries (like this one) show a lot of talent.

SOTM -- "But my oldest pair's named Bob" You should've been a guest on the Sally Jessy show, back when. ;)

(SOTM) "I got patches, on the patches, on my old blue jeans, well they used to be blue, when they used to be new, when they used to be clean". That was some famous words from Bon Scott that seems to apply for your shorts as well.

I'm back for more. Syllable-for-syllable parodies can easily turn into incoherent messes, but this one works wonderfully. I'm still very impressed at the way you pulled off "The Boxer Shorts." Heh heh.
Dee Range - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Spaff, glad to have finally rid myself of them. Traded them in on a 3 year old set of briefs, worn only on Sunday. Thanks for the comment. Coming from THE master, it's high praise.

Pretentious OS, as well-reamed as the titular subject, and matched to a T(-shirt). Outstanding jockey-ularity. 555
