Parody Song Title:

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I shocked the sheriff, with the juice of electricity,
I shocked the sheriff, with the juice of electricity.

All that voltage knocked him down,
Put him flat-ass on the ground.
It's lucky for him that it was AC,
'Cause I might have killed him with DC;
I would light him up with DC.
Now he's Tased.

CHORUS:
I shocked the sheriff; when he got the jolt he got quite tense
I shocked the sheriff; he felt as if he'd touched a wired cattle fence.

Sheriff Brown glowered: "You Tasered me;
I'm gettin' up slow.
I could feel all that voltage speed
Through my nerves and make my eyes glow,
Through my nerves and make my eyes glow."
He's dazed.

CHORUS

The gun Tased, aphasia came
As he fell, one more time, down.
And he could not speak as he rose from the ground. . .
Miming, mimetic clown--
Like a mute, moot Michael Brown,
Real dazed.

CHORUS

He reflexed involuntarily,
Danced like St. Vitus on speed.
Then he fainted; he was not feeling well.
What I gave him was a real knockout;
You could say that he was a "cop out,"
He got Tased.

I shot the sheriff, with the juice of electricity, jolts, jolts,
I shot the sheriff, with the juice of electricity, volts, volts.
