The Lyrics

While I was at the Orleans casino recently , I heard some young drunk guys singing the OS after a George Clinton concert.
Let’s all pretend, we're gonna pretend that we are drinking heavy
Act like we’re drinking heavy
Let’s all pretend, we're gonna pretend that we are drinking heavy
Just don’t get in the Chevy
Let’s all pretend, we're gonna pretend that we are drinking heavy
Act like we’re drinking heavy
Let’s all pretend, we're gonna pretend that we are drinking heavy
Just don’t get in the Chevy

555 for the sheer nuts of doing this song and repeating the choruses in a good way. Is this Parliament OS a first for Amiright? Funny funk!
