The Lyrics

Mow the lawn, my lazy son
Take the trash out when you're done
Get your slacker ass in gear
Don't goof off no more

Once I lived during the depths of Depression
I was there when poverty was in session
We walked ten miles to get to school then
It was uphill both ways

We were happy, never lazy or listless
We were grateful to get peanuts for Christmas
But now you're all a bunch of ingrates
And that's why I say

Mow the lawn, my lazy son
Take the trash out when you're done
Get your slacker ass in gear
Don't goof off no more

Go away, Dad, you're a big, massive bummer
Don't you know it's the vacation of summer
You claim the yard's in need of mowing
But maybe I'm not in the mood

In my stormy life of teenage emotion
I'm a roiling mass of psychic commotion
It's such a crippling condition
Still I hear the voices say

Mow the lawn, my lazy son
Take the trash out when you're done
Get your slacker ass in gear
Don't goof off no more, no

Mow the lawn, or you'll get no allowance
Mow the lawn, make believe it's a challenge
Try to find some motivation
Deep dish pizza waits for you

Mow the lawn, my lazy son
Take the trash out when you're done
Get your slacker ass in gear
Don't goof off
Don't goof off no more, no more

Brilliant concept and nicely executed. Three 5's.

Previous commentator sounds like he took advice in your "Stay Nude" parody. Wonderful parody, another improvement on the original lyrics. I like your observation on the older generation who walked 10 miles uphill to and from school both ways. And it was always 10 below zero except when it was 100 degrees in the building because there were no air conditioners. Will keep watching for your stuff.

Great work here Porf. Excellent title sub and carried well throughout. Especially liked the inclusion of 'uphill both ways'.
