The Lyrics

Well, I try to curb my trash mouth, but I get so dang incensed
That I blow my top and lash out; I ain't sittin' on no fence
If you cut me up in traffic, there's a tirade on the way
Lots of "Jumpin' Joe Jehosaphat"s I'll say.

I've a fearsome reputationMister Olden Swear, 'tis I
I'm adept at confrontationone "dangnabit" makes 'em cry
I'm a total cad and blackguard, and by heck I'll say it loud
Well, geewillickers; I'm cranky and I'm proud!

When I'm angry, it's "Oh, fiddle!"
And "goshdarnit", yessiree!
I make nuns and grannies giggle
With my wild profanity
And you won't subdue me
I'm mad; so sue me
My answer's "phooey!"

By my troth, I'm near exploding; Mister Olden Swear, 'tis I
Junior jackanapes I'm goading; I'm a curmudgeonly guy
If I thump a thumb with hammer, it's a pox upon the world
But I'd never be this filthy near a girl!

When I'm angry, it's "Oh, fiddle!"
And "goshdarnit", yessiree!
Been this way since I was little
It's what my pa taught to me
And you cannot stymie
My language grimy
My answer's "blimey"

Oooh, oddsbodkins. Oooh, oddsbodkins. Oooh, oddsbodkins.

I use a lot of those terms, so maybe we're "Cussins"....Funny profanity here, Kristof...
Stuart McArthur - June 22, 2005 - Report this comment
ROFLMAO! - the whole idea is hilarious, Kristof, and that's before you started with your jehosaphats (and where did you source the spelling btw?) and your oddsbodkins - and yes, that's how we see those old codgers alright - grumpy but harmless - 555

This was a sincerely original idea, and you did a great job. I won't insert any pretend swears here; by the way real swears cost a dollar nowadays......not like in olden times.

(SOTM) Apparently my previous comment got over-edited here and the one I just typed did as well ( seriously ). Pretty gosh darn funny stuff here Kristof.

SOTM--I am still captivated by your geriatric vulgarity...=)

(SOTM) - You had me chuckling harder than a nun, that's for sure
Peter Andersson - July 10, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Gosh! It's a bit scary to notice that you didn't PICK the even better parody "Possessed Canary, Mental Hen" for this round Kristof, how about you bottle some of that talent and sell it to the rest of us?

(sotm) it's just so dang dashed funny! - what in tarnation does that KR scalliwag put on his cornflakes? - July 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Jeepers, this is great! What was it Dee Range said a while back - "Ho hum, just another brilliant, hilarious parody from Kristof"? Great concept, many great lines - but my fave is "I'd never be this filthy near a girl." And I gotta tell ya, if you hadn't managed to squeeze this in at the last minute, my SOTM decision would be much less stressful.

Dangnammit! What in tarnation do I make of this one?
Mikey Squirrel - July 31, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM.. Very funny, Kristof. I stiil know people who actually say curses like that. It's pretty dang hilarious to hear it used today. Well done. 555

Heh heh, rated 'G' for 'old-man-bad-language'. Funny, funny stuff Kristof and very well-made. Also, excellent inclusion of so many gramps-isms and still keeping a great flow throughout.

Mass laughter, you darn-tootin' genius. Great concept and rhymed with the skill that we all have... for some obscure reason this reminded me of that old guy sitting on a porch in 'High Noon', his only line in the film being "Movin' mighty fast for a Sund'y!" 555
