The Lyrics

For those of you who are familar with ads on TV, this is for you...
(spoken)
Back in the middle school days, I watch World's Funniest every Sunday on FOX, and then when James Brown went to break now, he did a little gesture aside...

(Sings)
And then I said, "Just because the show's going to break now,
there's still some clips that we don't understand now
Before the address plug at the bottom
There is one cue card that James Brown is rocking

(James Brown)
My mama told me, you'd better stick around.

(Junkie)
(Stick) Oh, yeah
(uh-huh) You better stick around
(stick) uh-uh-uh

There were ads that were playing over now
My mommy's got some of that from the store now
The local ads showed cars and lawyers
and funiture for the kitchen and foyers

(James Brown)
My momma told me...You better stick around

(junkie)
(stick) Oh, yeah
(uh-huh) You better stick around
(stick, stick around)

A-Kroger gots itself a bargain, son
Backpacks sold to the first 5000
A-Furniture that is sold by the dozen
A-late night ads gave us true lovin'
And then those ads were almost through now
An ad for Simpsons came next too, now

(James Brown)
My momma told me...you better stick around

(instrumental)

Oh-hey-hey-hey
(oooohhh)
Kroger's got itself a bargain, son
Bobbleheads to the 1st 5000
Furniture is sold by the dozen
And late night ads gave us plenty true lovin'
But then the local ads are through now
The show is back and I am too now
World's funniest is now through now
Next Week, it's cancelled, so I'm sad and blue now
My mommy told James, you better stick around
(stick, stick around)
(uh-huh, don't let the 3 minutes kill you)
(stick)
Oh my, the ads keep getting richer
(uh-huh)
Uh-huh, every day and night
A-yeah-yeah, and it's alright
Uh-huh, take your kids by the hand, son
Understand my son
Be a man my son
I know you can my son
I love it...
A stick around
