The Lyrics

Your yard is like a forest glen
Branches over my head
Drownin' me in your flora waste
On my lawn instead

You're the wrong kind of neighbor
You deny responsibilities
This nonsensical labor
When it blows I find I'm bound to be

I'm a leaf raker, pile maker
Guff taker, hate the mess from all your trees
I'm a leaf raker, pile maker
Guff taker, what a mess from you, no, no

Your leaves have made my brow perspire
Blowin' out of control
I tried to set the things on fire
Tried to dig a big hole

You're the wrong kind of neighbor
You deny responsibilities
This work intensive labor
When it blows I find I'm bound to be

I'm a leaf raker, pile maker
Guff taker, hate the mess from all your trees
I'm a leaf raker, pile maker
Guff taker, what a mess from you, no, no

Get that rake out, Rickster, and rake in some of these "5's"...Say, have you abandoned the "Rick D" moniker on the site? Will this get added to your prior 1,000+ pieces done under that name? Of course, with your knack for parody-writing you could be back up to 1,000 again with a new 'nom de plume' in fairly short-order...

Great parody of a great early 80s song Rick! I will not leave my signature vote this time. I will give it a 5's vote, which is what it deserves.

Would you specifically be a larchraker? Nice job on the chorus especially.
