The Lyrics

You got me moving, going back to the 'burbs
You're trashing my town just like a whole bunch of turds
Don't wreck this town
No, no, no, no, no, oo-ooh ooh
I'll tell you once more
Before I close down my store
Don't wreck this town

You want to hang out with your bad-ass friends
I'm telling you now, it had better end
Don't wreck this town
No, no, no, no, no, oo-ooh ooh
I'll tell you once more
Before I close down my store
Don't wreck this town

Don't wreck this town, punks
Don't wreck this town, punks
Don't wreck this town. punks
Don't wreck this town

What happened to the girl I used to like
Now she only goes out with thugs of your type
Don't wreck this town
No, no, no, no, no, oo-ooh ooh
I'll tell you once more
Before I close down my store
Don't wreck this town

You hang out at stores and get on customers' nerves
One of these days you'll get what you all deserve
Don't wreck this town
No, no, no, no, no, oo-ooh ooh
I'll tell you once more
Before I close down my store
Don't wreck this town

Don't wreck this town, punks
Don't wreck this town, punks
Don't wreck this town, punks
Don't wreck this town

You're acting bad just like the snakes in the grass
One of these days you'll all get kicked in the ass
Don't wreck this town
No, no, no, no, no, oo-ooh ooh
I'll tell you once more
Before I close down my store
Don't wreck this town

You got me angry, got me moving away
You got me calling up the cops yesterday
Don't wreck this town
No, no, no, no, no, oo-ooh ooh
I'll tell you once more
Before I close down my store
Don't wreck this town
Town, town, town, town, town
I'll tell you once more before you fall to the floor
Don't wreck this town
(Thud!)
2004 Michael W. McVey

Ahh, alvin...hated the original? Michael...this was very good. Since I did the song before, I know that there are musical points in the original that could also have spiced it up even more! Still...very good!

Good job!
Has anyone noticed that there is a yellow line under the word a**? The same happened on Bob Gomez's parody, today.
Is this a new site feature?

Sorry, if I was seeing things,Yesterday. I guess... it's new the kid-proof software on my PC.

Nice work. I like the original song too, unlike someone else who already commented. ;)
