The Lyrics

My first Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced leh-nerd skin-nerd) parody! I apologize from the mountain once again for my recent lack of parodies, but I've got important work to do in college, such as my final algebra test on Friday (wish me luck, guys & girls!). Anyways, Smokey & the Bandit is one of my favorite movies, and Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of my favorite bands, so I thought I'd put 2+2 together & make a southern rock parody about the movie. Enjoy the parody! I've got more parodies in the pressure cooker from Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Peter Griffin, Patrick Hernandez, etc... I've also got a mega-blockbuster coming up for #100, so stay tuned!
(Let ‘er rip!)

Trans Am tears down the road,
Headin’ for Texarkana.
Guy’s a legend in the Southland,
There’s some dudes thirsty in Atlanta
And he’s not stoppin’ at all.

Well, I heard Jerry Reed sing about him,
Says he’s headed east bound & down.*
Well, I hope the Bandit remembers,
That Smokey & his comrades abound.
(They won’t rest)

Smokey & the Bandit,
One of the best movies.
Smokey & the Bandit,
It’s much better than broccoli!

In Arkansas, he met this woman
(Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!)
Who didn’t want to get married.
So she ran away with the Bandit,
And they took off at high speed.
(Don’t smoke weed)

Smokey & the Bandit,
One of the best movies.
Smokey & the Bandit,
It’s much better than broccoli!
(Broccoli sucks)
(instrumental break, chorus sings “Ah, ah, ah, he’s the Bandit” throughout)

Now Buford T. is really angry,
‘Cause his son’s bride done run away,
He’s takin’ off in hot pursuit,
His car’s fallin’ into disarray.
(He’ll fix it someday)

Smokey & the Bandit,
One of the best movies.
Smokey & the Bandit,
It’s much better than broccoli!

Smokey & the Bandit,
(Watch out for Smokey!)
One of the best movies.
(I love soy cheese!)
Smokey & the Bandit,
(Baby!)
It’s much better than broccoli!

Yeah, Burt Reynolds is so awesome!
*-A clever reference to the song "East Bound & Down".
