The Lyrics

This is my 99th parody on AMIRIGHT.COM
Breakin' the lyrics the old bard way,
Fakin' a pyrrhic in play by play,
I can snow and feign some untrite fun lines.
Ninety and nine.

Some make songs about golden showers,
Writin' a good one takes odd hours,
A milestone gain, it's now my time to shine.
Ninety and nine,
(It's ninety-nine)
Ninety and nine,
(It's ninety-nine)

Another line, I'm talkin' 'bout writin' fine.
I always take my time, I'm settin' up my shrine.
Ninety and nine,
(It's ninety-nine)
Ninety and nine,
(It's ninety-nine)

Writin' for free it lifts the spirit, when,
Slugging the key,
The way you steer it.
Riggin' the flow and chain as words combine.
Ninety and nine,
(It's ninety-nine)
Ninety and nine,
(It's ninety-nine)

I thought this was gonna be about Texas narcs. "In the Great State, you can get five years for murder and 99 for pot possession." -- Molly Ivins, the Conscience of Texas. Of course, it's only 98 years if you didn't inhale.

What about Clinton? What he said was he didn't inhale. What he meant actually was that he didn't exhale. And I told you Mike, I will never be predictible. Mike - You ever been to Texas?

Never been to that cultural and moral wasteland, and haven't missed it a bit. Let's face it, except for LBJ, Roger Clemens and Willie Nelson, what has Texas ever given America that we can be proud of?

Say whatever you want about Texas. I have never claimed this place as my own. I only live here because my job is here. But I would not move to NJ for a job if they paid me three times what I'm making now. And you sure seem to be an authority on a place that you have never been to by your own admission. I can say what I do about NJ because I have been there more times than I can count and it was usually because I had to cross the swamp to get to better places, except for those times that the USAF made me spend time there, but at least I got hazardous duty pay when I did.
