The Lyrics

The original didn't rhyme much either.
So many nights I open the window
Letting in nature to cool off the air
So many bugs I see flying toward me
You leave me alone but now
She's standing there

You bite up my wife
Giving her welts
Damn mosquitoes
You bite up her thighs
And make her scream so long

Rolling around, using the bug spray
Allergies taking a nasty turn
Benadryl, a chance to survive
Come bite me
You will soon die a horrible death

You bite up my wife
Now I must watch
Her carry on
You bite up her arms
And make her hurt too long

Man, that spray's strong
Go to the light
When you
You bite up my wife

Saliva is good for bug bites, if applied very soon after the bite occurs. Has to do with some enzyme. 5's

Very good. Brought back memories of growing up in northern Maine, where snow-melt pools in the woods provided huge breeding grounds for skeeters, which dwarfed Texas longhorns. We had a bug spraying truck that actually came around 3 times a day, and all us kids would run behind it in the fog spray to get repellant on us for protection.About the only thing it accomplished was brain damage :-D.555

Thanks Birg. Naturally, I'm more proud of the original things I do than the parodies, but this was a good way to combine both. I am always looking for new things to attempt and new places to find inspiration. There is chit-chat on the messageboard about compiling some of these efforts into a "group album". Martha points out that you need permission from the music writers to do that sort of thing, but that's if you make money. Al gets permission and pays royalties for every parody he does. that's why he make sure half his output is completely original. The song Johnnie and I did is ours in every sense, because I rewrote all the music. If anyone has new ideas or requests I'm open to them. Spaff just asked.
