The Lyrics

Not much Jethro Tull parodied....I'll rectify that right now. I'm doing Edit #1, because there's NO WAY anyone can parody the entire song (it's a bloody ALBUM) Yes, this plays on hillbilliy stereotypes, y'all!
Really don't mind if you sit with the cows
My words but a whisper -- heard only by SOWS.
I may make you feel but I can't make you think.
Your truck's on the blocks and your brain's in the sink.
So you ride yourselves over the fields and
you make all your animal deals and
you hillbillies really know how it feels to be thick as a hick.
And the old-scarecrow virtues are all swept away in
the tornado season
the moral melee.
The elastic retreat rings the close of play as the last gust uncovers
the newfangled way.
But your new shoes are worn at the heels and
your reneck skin rapidly peels and
you slack-jawed yokels know how it feels to be thick as a hick.

And the love that I feel ain't so far away:
It's that sister that I just kissed today -- and you
shake your head and
say it's a shame.

Spin me back down the years and the days in the South.
Draw the old worn-out curtains and shut up your dang mouth.
Throw me down the darn banjo: let them sing along.
This darn parody done copyright in 2003 by Ra'akone, Y'all! Now come back ya hear!

Brave to be doing Jethro Tull... Seeing as you've obviously got this far in, have a look here: http://www.inthe00s.com/cgi-bin/YaBB/YaBB.cgi?board=quizzes&action=display&num=1066737079 and see if you can spot the Tull song...

Maybe one of the women can tackle the whole album "A Fashion Play" and the story of "The Hare Who Lost His Balance On The Runway" Just a thought.

I was all excited to read this, but it was almost like reading the lyrics to the original...to me, not a whole lot was changed...no way in hell does a redneck use the terms "moral melee", "elastic retreat" or "newfangled way." This was so ripe for a great parody, but I don't think ya delivered like you could have. 4-4-2.
