The Lyrics

Not to prejudge the situation, but.....
(Lead singer:)
Plee-ee-ee-ease, oh, plee-ee-ee-ease
Lock phenom bum away!
Plee-ee-ee-ease, oh, plee-ee-ee-ease
Lock phenom bum away!

(Background singers:)
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away
Lock him away, lock him away

Colorado, at Cordillera
Where Bryant sleeps tonight
Resort lodgings, the best of lodgings
Where Bryant sleeps tonight
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!

With the white chick, that crazy white chick
That Bryant sleeps tonight
With the white chick, that starstruck hat check
And she puts up a fight
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!

Lots of cameras, and sports reporters
Where Bryant weeps and lies
With the wifie, his teenage wifie
The diamond gleams tonight
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!

No endorsements, no fat endorsements
For violent creeps who lie
Trade in Nikes for prison garments
That Bryant creep must fry
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!
Pleeeeeeease, oh, please lock phenom bum away!

Seedy TV, on seedy TV
A phenom bum astray
Seedy TV, on seedy TV
A phenom bum astray........
ęBob Gomez 2003

Kobe's innocent til proven guilty. I live in Colorado and am pissed off that my tax dollars are paying for this stupid investigation & trial. That chick is a money grubbing slut who has had previous accusations against others. But it was a great parody though.

Songs about Kobe Bryant are totally inappropriate, so I can give this no better than 5's.

I admire the adherence to the syllables--tough to do and make it work-and I hate all egotistical athletes--This should be on Mad TV

Thanks a lot! I haven't been able to get this thing out of my head for days--Lock phenom bum away over and over. I may have to get a few friends together and perform it somewhere (accapella, of course, and for no pay) Would you mind if I were to do that? I'd want your permission.

I thought by now songs like this would make people realize, there ain't no way to hide your Bryant lies.

This is the best Bryant Parody I've seen. I'd love to hear it live.
Rick D - November 15, 2003 - Report this comment
I'm actually trying to arrange that.

Hi Rick and Mari-- Please feel free to do my songs live, as long as you give credit and tell people about this incredible website. And if we ever get this AmiRight Punvention to happen, I want to jam all night with you guys. Have fun with the Kobe song and tell us how it went over. d;:^)

Whoa, how'd I miss this one? Great stuff as usual Bob
Bob Gomez - January 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Leah finally heard it. Paul Robinson sang along smiling the whole time. Mari sang lead, Rick on piano, Bob on yeaaaaah bass backup vocals and guitar, and the audience sang on the chorus. FUN!!! Not bad for no rehearsal! I look forward to seeing more AmiRighters at the Espresso Garden on open mic nights. I will back up any of you guys, so practice those lead vocals. d;:^)

I take the accuser's claims with a big ol' fat chunk of NaCl, but I gotta give you 5's here -- your 'wimoweh' substitutions are great!
