The Lyrics

Hey...what the Hell?...oh no
Yeah, once I was a jovial bard
Roamin' round the countryside
If you visited Britain, yeah
I could be your first-rate guide
Then everyone around me, yeah
Started getting warmongering
And then next thing I'm knowin' (next I knew)
Our republic was ruled by a king

Yeah, they were pushin' and shovin' and taxin' to the maxin'
And just when it hit me somebody poked my back and decreed

You're flunky to Lou Sixth, peon
You're flunky for your whole life
You're flunky to Lou Sixth, peon
Lay on your stomach and we'll walk all over you till you die
(oh, yeah) till you die...yeah, yeah

Well, I got right on a vessel
Out of that theocracy
The French were sympathetic (Oh, they were)
Their dukes so full of hypocracy
So still I kept on searchin'
Until I got a bit sick for home (Yeah, what'd you do?)
I said, "I'll sneak back in there" (sneak back in there)
And hope to God it's legal to roam

Yeah they were pushin' and shovin' and taxin' to the maxin'
And between my sobs, man, somebody poked my back and decreed

You're flunky to Lou Sixteenth, now
Don't ask 'bout the other nine
You're flunky to Lou Sixteenth, now
Lay on your stomach and we'll make sure to crush your fragile spine

Till you die...(Yeah) Ow, till you die

(Come on...Play some bone-crushin' flunky music)

(Hey, wait a minute) At first I was uneasy
changin' to the life of a serf
My mind's just not for crops, man
And they all had me plowin' the earth
Oh, but now it's so much better (It's way way better)
I'm guidin' all the wel-uh-thy snobs
But I never will get used to (No, I won't)
How they get through the men for the job

And no more shovin' and pushin' and taxin' to the maxin'
Cause now I'm the guy who is pokin' all your backs and decree

You're flunky to Lou Twenty-Six
Next week comes number two-seven
You're flunky to Lou Twenty-Six
Lay on your stomach and we'll walk all over you till heaven
Till heaven...oh, till heaven

(They shouted, You're flunky to Lou Sixth)
You're flunky to Lou Sixth
(You're flunky to Lou Sixth)
You're the flunky...You're flunky to Lou Sixth
(You're flunky to Lou Sixth)
You--'re flunky to Lou SIxth
(You're flunky to Lou Sixth)
Gonna push you lower now...

You're flunky to Lou Sixth, peon
You're flunky your whole life, yeah

You're flunky to Lou Sixteenth, now
Don't ask 'bout the other nine

You're flunky to Lou Twenty-Six
Next week comes number two-seven

TOS is from the 70's, not the 60's. But I do think this parody is clever.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
