The Lyrics

In army there's always the dreaded bunk inspection, also called "Stand-by Bed" where you open your cupboard to the wrath of your superior...Explanation of some local terminology:Suay: unluckyKnock it down: to do push-ups
You will not expect
An event like that
Something hectic and nerve-wrecking
To kill you
Of course you'll be afraid
You do not even know if you're suay
Let me tell you
This event's called
Stand by bed

Oh clean it clean it quick
And clean oh I mean, very clean
Or you'll get it
You'll be dead
Stand by bed

When the sergeant comes to check
You can see our shirts wet
Watch the dripping of the sweat
Down our backs
He will make you knock it down
For some dust on the ground
He'll check thoroughly
Making sure that it's dust-free

Hey C-C!! "not sure" never a good way to present a parody. 1st step...look in the decades section of the parody archive (left side of the screen). If the song's popular enough, it'll be there, complete with the name of the artist. If it's not there...Google the song title! it takes but a minute or two (five at tops)...and stops you looking like a lazy a$$....

I'm one of those who ain't so anal about unsure source material or artist....a good parody makes it all irrelevant. That being need to work a little harder on keeping the original form of the song and write about this subject in a way that can make a little more sense. Your intro helped a little, but it still is a little obtuse to non-military personnel. Looks like you did this in a rush. Good luck.

Ken E Bing is an impostor. Wait, no, he's a copycat. He's trying to get cheap laughs by spoonerizing my name...nice try, sucka.

Ben E. King is 67 and about five-foot-five, and is definitely one of those rockers better known as a lover than a fighter. So if you're gonna call a guy "sucka," be advised of such things. On the other hand, he's still selling out concert halls, and justifiably, so he don't need to fight nobody.

Yes I am 67 years old. And if I "don't need to fight nobody", wouldn't that mean that I do have to fight somebody?
