Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Newton's Third Law of Motion: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
After everything that has happened,
I will sue.
You'd best believe it,
You'd best believe it's true.

On the ice I tumbled; gurney's
Where I did glide; it was parked,
After ride in ambulance, in
ICU.

Nearly took out a crosstown bus
'Cause the crazed driver was stoned
But the ambulance, he lunged it,
Made it through.

After everything that has happened,
I will sue.
I'm kinda peevish
I'm peevish, black and blue

On Monday snow was falling free;
The next day--cold and clear
On the walkway lay the blinding
Snow, a ton.

Our landlord man was neglectful;
It lay there till the rains came;
Then the walkway, like a hockey
Stadium.

Third occurred--for every action
There's an opposite reaction--
Hobnail boots on sleek ice sheet;
Still slipped but quipped, "Don't fail me, feet!"
Cracked my ass! went to meet Dewey, Cheat-
ham, and Howe,* and they'll sue,
Gonna sue, gonna sue. . . .


*mythical law firm of Click and Clack on "Car Talk"
