Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

pull my stakes up early in the morning
canvas shed...matching awning
though arthritic, mending up a seam
make the bed...fold the screen
(fold the screen)

though i'm achy
and so shaky
can't stay where i am
my home's a tee-pee

yes, my body seems to stink like crazy
folks don't find...i'm fresh as daisies
running here and there, when spots, i need
sites i find ?...rocks and weeds
(rocks and weeds)

pitching spoils my day
i toil away
its cramped and small
my home's a tee-pee

creepy at night
when the squirrels try to pry
through my window
make it in time

much repaired and pointed is the ceiling
rugged floor...crappy feeling

pitching spoils my day
i toil away
its cramped and small
my home's a tee-pee

can't keep it dry
when the rain starts to fly
through my window
shaking in time

pull those stakes up when the cops start warning
break my camp...off, i'm storming
living thus don't bring me much esteem
i'm half dead..so it seems

though i'm achy
and so shaky
can't stay where i am
my home's a tee-pee

Your parody confirms what I've though all along, Al...camping is only for the terminally masochistic. This was great fun, and a brill choice of OS. 555

I thought this was going to be a song about J.D. from "Scrubs"! A silly idea, brought to its invevitable conclusion, good word subs, not bad.
