The Lyrics

And the sign said no dogs allowed except for seeing eye,
So since it ain't in braille and the dog can't read, just what does this sign imply?
The sign at the cattle feed lot said no prions have ever been placed,
Now they're watchin' the grind 'cause you know a mind's a terrible thing to taste.

Sign, sign, even for the blind,
Scriptin' out buffoonery, all to remind,
Read this, what means that, what a stupid sign.

And the sign said "No Trespassing", prosecution is our legal right,
But this was meant for the lucky surviving few who are not shot on sight.
They put up a sign that says "Keep Out", do they throw all the 'IN' away?
These signs look like they come from outer space, each one is a real winner.

Sign, sign, even for the blind,
Scriptin' out buffoonery, all to remind,
Read this, what means that, what a stupid sign.

All these signs, you must pay heed,
"Don't even think of parking on this street",
But if you thought it, how would the heat,
Know that you broke the law here?
And the sign said, "Be prepared to stop traffic entering from side", huh?

The sign said "Trucks over six thousand pounds all must weigh",
Either the words were too big or the sign was too small,
It seemed to have a bit more to say,
So I got me a pen and a paper and I added some sense to that sign,
Added to "All must weigh" I wrote in "A lot".
I made sense out of that line.

Sign, sign, even for the blind,
Scriptin' out buffoonery, all to remind,
Read this, what means that, what a stupid sign.

My favorite verse..

The sign said "Trucks over six thousand pounds all must weigh",
Added to "All must weigh" I wrote in "A lot".
I made sense out of that line.

I'm leaving you three 5's, and that's a good sign.

Ooh... I thought it was going to be ripping on the godawful movie of a couple years ago. I don't know the song - for that, I would have downloaded it.

I remember seeing signs in downtown Barberton, Ohio, that said: "Don't even THINK about parking here..." ;-)

Very creative stuff in this one. We recently landed at Burbank Airport in SoCal, where we were greated by a sign that read: "NO SMOKING / NO DRINKING / NO BOMBS". Needless to say, we extinguished the wick on ours.

Pretty creative! The dumbest sign I ever saw (I'm not making this up!) was in a public restroom in a Food Lion. It said "DO NOT DEFECATE IN COMMODE." I feel sorry for the guy who had to mop THAT floor . . . My favorite "No Trespassing" sign is in a junkyard in Broadway, VA. It says "Persons entering this area at night will be identified in the morning." :D

Hey Stray - maybe I could use that sign idea at the Food Lion for my next parody that deals with this sort of potty humor.

Thanks all for the votes and comments.

Good parody, Guy. I like the IN sign line.
Paul Robinson - January 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Guy, I checked my "Eight Ball" to see what to score this and it said, "Sign's point to 3 Fives", so I went with that. You know, even if you try to obey the signs you can have problems...The other day I saw a sign that said "FINE FOR LITTERING", so I said, "COOL" and just threw all my junk out right there. Would you believe I got a ticket for it??

Ooops, a second look reminded me that I actually DO know the original song! I apologize for the delay in voting & commenting Guy - great job here.

I love the "trucks over 6000 pounds all must way" line...the entire verse I mean...Great!
Guy - January 24, 2004 - Report this comment
Mikey - I used to see that sign all over Iowa when I lived in the midwest. I always wanted to add that part to it. I guess I did now. Glad you enjoyed that verse.

My thanks to all who voted and commented on this song. It was a fun write.

This parody is overrated, not funny, doesn't pace correctly and in general not that good. The rating system on this website is badly flawed. Webmaster: Please implement better scripting to prevent people from erasing their cookies and voting for themselves....
