The Lyrics

Every neighborhood has one of these guys. I believe when you reach 55 tears old, you begin to slowly morph into one.
I live in Massapequa - On a mighty nice fourth-acre lot.
Standing in my robe, lookin' through the bushes,
I'm wonderin' where my newspaper's caught.
Then I turn and spy these half-dressed, undernourished,
latch-key brats.
Stealing my grand prize flowers -
If you see them, kindly return 'em back.

So I scream, "Hey kids! - Get off of my lawn!"
"Hey kids! - Get off of my lawn!"
"You kids - I know where you're from!"
"Don't mess with me", I say, "Wreck the street - Not my lawn, Baby!"

My entry bell is ringin' - I go to see who is it there on the stoop.
Some boys yell, "Hey, your bag's on fire!"
Now, I'm stompin' flamin' goop.
It's three pm - the school bus comes -
Bringing little hairy monsters home from class.
Just 'cause they get so pumped -
Do they have to take it - out on my grass?


And I scream, "Hey kids! - Get off of my lawn!"
"Hey kids! - Get off of my lawn!"
"You'll wish - you'd never been born!"
"Don't fool around - or I'll sick my hounds - on your buns, Baby!"

I'm so frustrated, frazzled 'bout this -
I decide it's time to lay me down.
Now it's some ninety minutes later,
There are so many - strangers milling 'round.
They rummage through closets, take measurements,
And chatter away.
By the awning, I see a banner hung like a flag - sayin',
"Open House Today".

And I scream, "Hey you! - Get out of my home!"
"Hey you! - Go back where you're from!"
"You kids - Get off of my lawn!"
"Scoot your old dogs, and those potbelly hogs - off my lawn, Baby!"

Sorry to disappoint you, Ethan. Though I grew up in the greater NYC area (dare I say North Jersey?), my wife and I live a little north of Seattle (please call before showing up on our doorstep). Spent half a lifetime in greater Lost Angeles, which is where Rick D and I became friends (or fiends). I've always wanted to put Massapequa into a song. When I was a radio producer on the left coast, I used to plug the California border town of Chula Vista. Some towns just have names that sound cool.

Lured here, and glad of it, by entries in "Latest Comments." Funny song. Personally, I left 55 behind almost 7 years ago bu my morph seems to be delayed. Can't say the same for my across the fence neighbors in the over-50 gated community that backs up to my property. I expect it's the concentrated demographic that makes'em mean, but mean they certainly are. Once saw a pair of that community's octagenarian residents get into a fistfight--literally--in the parking lot of the strip mall fronting the community over a handicapped spot for which _neither_ of their boat-sized Caddys was plated or placarded. I guess they were fully morphed. :-) 5s
