The Lyrics

hot on the heels of syphillis, another delve into the world of microbiological friends..
diagnosed with a virus in my nether ly zone
shoulda gripped the base of it, and went on my own
self pleasure baby just isn't that good
need a little kleenex if you're sportin some wood

herpes crabs and fleas, infected from some people in a town,
they've all got herpes, crabs and fleas,
and every night all the men would come around.
and lay a mama down

Picked up chlamydia outside of Mobile,
didn't think I'd get it if I just had a feel
I was 16 she was 21,
bubba needs a rubba when he's having his fun

herpes, crabs and fleas, infected from some people in a town
they've all got, Herpes, crabs and fleas,
and every night all the men would come around
and lay a mama down

Classic Malcolm. The title alone made me laugh.

Great parody but..."Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" was not a 60's song. It was released in 1971. It was also a solo release from Cher, Sonny had nothing to do with it.

When my nephew was little he would sing along with Cher to this song, but when it came to "thieves, theives, tramps and thieves," my nephew substituted: "fleas, fleas, tramp those fleas!" Innocently of course, he was only about 5 years old!
