The Lyrics

A nice catchy tune from 1967's "The Who Sell Out" is the inspiration for this parody about what suckers we guys can be for a pretty face ... and so forth. :-)

I took my money
Gave it to my honey
She saved that cash
Every nickel stashed
Her mama my hope bashed

Put that cash in an old tin can’s
What she did, mama said,
An old tin can

Girls are oh so pretty
Just go and ask any man
Guys get oh so giddy
Spy those shakin’ bakin’ cans

Some read their books
Some love’ta cook
Knead their own dough
But ya’d better know

Put your cash in a young girl’s hands
Or think what mama said
‘bout shakin’ cans

Put your cash in an old tin can
Just like my mama said
An old tin can

With the interest you earn today, that might not be a bad idea. ;-)

"Knead their own dough" ROFLMAO! Shakin' cans can can a man, as can the can-can. Can can you these Fives.

Thanks Alvin. Yeah I loved that Who album and the song too. It was so cool they did it twice, as you know. btw, this song parody is the one I inadverantly submitted with an extra line I edited out and replaced with the second version. That's why it's a dupe. My little spin on the OS still comes through.
