The Lyrics

Gee, wonder Nickelodeon cartoon series I watched before writing this?
I-I-I-I-I'm a beaver chewin' on some bark
I'm buildin' a da-a-a-am 'fore it gets dark
Trees I'm chewin', oh-oh-oh, logs I'm movin'
Beaver chewin' a shitload of bark

All us beavers havin' our fill
Ev'ry day's Arbor-Arbor-Arbor
Che-e-e-e-ew trees we will
That river, we'll be blockin'
Tis clogged from all our lo-o-oggin'
Happens when there's beavers
(Just happens when there's beavers)
Chewin' on some ba-a-a-a-ark (lots of bark)

Watch for trees a-fa-allin'
Right upon your noggin
We're always chewin'
Pine or elm, we're chewin'
Bite, beavers, bite
Cause the dam's lookin' shit
It's kinda tight

No room (room)
For the beavers (all us beavers)
We need more rooms (rooms)
Re-do the kitchen (fix the kitchen)
Bedrooms (rooms)
Get to the chewin'
Now-now-now (get to chewin')
Chew (chew) wood for buildin'

A colony of beavers (yeah)
All of us chewin' on the bark (yeah)
Another dam a-jammin' the river (yeah)
All thanks to chewin' on the bark (yeah)
Wood we're chewin'
Yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah innuendo's mo-o-o-ovin'
Livin' room, we're fixin'
Badly needs remodelin' (redwood, chewin' it)
Fuzzy builders chewin' on bark (on the bark)

We're busy as beavers
That joke's a no-brainer
We are focusin'
On buildin', not jokin'
Bite, beavers, bite
Can't get long in the tooth
Dangerous, right

Hence why we're (we're) always chewin' (keep on chewin')
The truth (tooth)
If we're not chewin' (not always chewin')
Teeth (teeth) will keep growin' (don't want growin')
So we chew (chew)
Don't want skulls breakin'

Two logs broke, dam it!

All of my beavers (Sis and bro beavers)
Cute fuzzy builders (dam-able builders)
Chew (on deciduous)
Match the blueprint (beaver-scale blueprint)
Keep on chewin' (on coniferous now)
Work to do (chew down all the oaks now)
Now chew (never stop chewin' now)
Chew elms too (no elms? Deal with it now)
We gotta build a dam (chew)
Fit logs together
Redo this dam
Won't fit my TV (move)
Need a bathroom ensuite (move)
So chew (chew birches for it)
Chew (chew junipers, quick)
So chew (chew sycamores, quick)
Chew (chew ev'ry tree, quick)
I said to chew it (never stop chewin')
More stories to it (this dam be bitchin')
Logs pile on (keep chewin')
Dam on (keep chewin')
Pile on (keep chewin')
Chew on (keep chewin')
Build it (keep chewin')
Fix it (keep on chewin')
Please (keep on chewin')
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah (I said keep chewin')
Yeah, dam on (dam it, keep chewin')
Yeah (why are you stoppin'?)
Yeah (say you need provin'?)
Dam on (say I'm a human?!)
That's a laugh, alrighty (Bullshit...keep chewin')
Ignore the tag, pally

I followed the lyrics sheet for the last segment, only to find the actual song seemed different. I say "seemed" cause it's kinda chaotic, so I went "eh" and went as is. If that angers you, then uh...look, monkeys!

Dam funny.

(Artistry) Very interesting idea and you did as much as you could with it. THis is surprisingly a challenging song to spoof and you pulled it off well. I would liked to see more playfulness with your rhyming. The same words were being used over and over again, it began to be repetitive. Some more variety could've really helped, but this is solid as oak.

As Leslie Nielsen once said, "Nice beaver!" This type of music is what Aretha is best at, and I love what you did with it. I giggled and smiled throughout, then tears welled up when the "rapturous" ad lib coda kicked into gear. Hallelujah, Praise The Board! The repetition here can be pretty much forgiven due to the gospel style.

Of all the songs everyone picked for this round, this is the only one I've never heard before. This was a fun read and I think you a nice job with the hectic last verse. I would say dam good, but Matty stole that from me haha.
