The Lyrics

Inspired by the tv show "Making History!"
Homeless bum-to-bum fighting
There was scratching and biting
Tire irons and glass bottles flying
To the alley crowd t'was exciting!

They were funky smellin' men from funky Cardboard Land
They kept throwing up, but they wouldn't stay down
Raggedy clothes tore apart, some yelling, then restart
Maybe a busted lip, [Time out] from a bottle took a sip (of whiskey)


There was ugly Beetlejuice and Carney little one*
Wore clothes eaten by moths, BO was oh so strong
Arguments and crude demands, middle finger of the hand
Made the older flip, whole thing like one big, bad trip


All wrong, all wrong, all wrong, all wrong


Bum-to-bum fighting, ended with curses and crying
Hang on, hang on, hang on

... we can drink the night away

Note: this parody does in no way endorse bum fighting and the recording of bum fighting for monetary gain as in that famous series filmed in California. I've only ever seen a few bum fights in person while walking my dogs by the freeway. I know a lot of homeless people due to ministry participating and bringing them food & clothing, medical supplies, and other items.
