The Lyrics

This here's a right purdy pair'dy, y'all!!
You walks your boy to school, Budcoz you is both in the seventh grade
And your idea of home "ennertainment" is
A six-pack and can o' Raid
You attend fam'ly reunionsin the hope that ya might get laid
You's savin' up for some drapes for yo' trailer
Drapes for yo' trailer, and

More propanethat possum's underdone, so you won't chew
More propane (more propane!)that possum's underdone, so you won't chew
Don't chew! Don't chew!

You think "loading the dishwasher" meansgittin' your missus drunk
You brought new tyres for your truck, so this week
The kids'll be eatin' skunk
When the fiddle player yells "Hoe Down!"your honey hits the floor
And your TP*it has page numbers on it
Page numbers on it, yeah!

More propanethat possum's underdone, so you won't chew
More propane (more propane!)that possum's underdone, so you won't chew
Don't chew! Don't chew!

You have a dreamseven straight weeks on Springer
Eight weeks on Springer, and

More propanethat possum's underdone, so you won't chew
More propane (more propane!)that possum's underdone, so you won't chew
Don't chew! Don't chew!

When the Halloween pumpkin on your front porchhas two more teeth than your bride
When you do your home improvements with a blowtorch,
And your refrigerator is outside
When ya gives your kid a siphon hoseto take fo' show 'n' tell
I think that it's timeto be grillin' some roadkill
Grillin' some roadkill: get

More propanethat possum's underdone, so you won't chew
More propane (more propane!)that possum's underdone, so you won't chew
Don't chew! Don't chew!


* Toilet Paper, y'all!!

I kept wondering what you knew of rednecks, considering where you live. This line was ultra cute....."When the fiddle player yells "Hoe Down!"…your honey hits the floor" The whole parody was cute. 5's

Dang, son! If Ah could count to fahve, that's whut Ah'd give yuh! Ah don't know how y'all could do so well, 'cept bein' from Australia, yer REALLY in the Deep South! Though it does bear a little resemblance to muh city-slick cousin Mike's pairudy "You Might Be a Country Boy." Y'all an' him just might have the makin's of a, whaddaya call it, a concept album! An' maybe we'll one day see "The Tasmanian Devil Came Up to Georgia!"

What everybody else wrote, plus "loading the dishwasher" and "Don't chew, don't chew."

We catered a function for people like this once, and they'd burnt (over-propaned) the spit roast so much that as it rotated, the bony carcass just rattled and couldn't turn with the spindle - then they asked me to put their pirated album "Slick De Grease" on - straightaway "Lido" started playing - the first track of Silk Degrees...etc etc

that parody aint stereotyping Kristof - that's a truthful statement - and you should've seen the teeth, I mean tooth, on the dishwasher - 555
