The Lyrics

This is one of the first parodies I ever did. I was still in college, in fact. This is a somewhat updated version.
Moonshine on my shoulders makes my shirt wet,
Moonshine, hope the cops don't see it in my trunk,
Moonshine in the water kills the fishies,
Moonshine almost always makes me drunk.

If I had a gift that I could give you,
I'd give to you a bottle of Kentucky Straight.
If I had a song that I could sing for you,
I'd sing a song to make you want a date!

Moonshine on my shoulders my shirt wet,
Moonshine, hope the cops don't see it in my trunk,
Moonshine in the water kills the fishies,
Moonshine almost always makes me drunk.

If I had advice that I could give to you,
I'd tell you to lighten up and live.
If I had a wish that I could wish for you,
I'd wish for all the love that you can give.

Moonshine on my shoulders my shirt wet,
Moonshine, hope the cops don't see it in my trunk,
Moonshine in the water kills the fishies,
Moonshine almost always makes me drunk.

Moonshine almost all the time.

1986, 2003 Michael W. McVey

You fill up my barrels
White lightning - so glor'ous
What a fountain - it's drinktime
It's a schlock to my brain...

Trunk and drunk was a nice touch!
