The Lyrics

I was challenged to do this by Meriadoc. I went with the longer album version, since that was all I could find on YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-9fk12ZWiU
Pee pee puddles, stickball dingers, cops that snoop and fake art flingers
Sonic blasts and gangland heavies, queer-eyed singers, broken levees
Naked, sleazy, shapely sighers, guys with priors, housing buyers
Hoe commotion, locals passin' reefers, herbals, crack contraptions
Shady ladies--not a lotta--skinny ninnies gettin' squatter
Cabbies lookin', lesbies scorin', rigging ballots, vendors snoring
Snotty tissues, huge iguanas, trauma sutures, momma drama
Witches, fairies, cemeteries, barfing mice and wiltin' berries
Skimming, trimming cocoa crop and vats of smack and Springer watchin'

Life on my block
Just a hazy old fogy
Not a churner of chowder
Smoke my replay stogie
(woo-woo)
Life on my block
Butt is lazy and moldy
As I tend to my pain woes
Wise, but old and scold-y

Neck is ailin', hips are crickin', pile of stock is drop-a-drippin'
Tension-prone with palpations, dental clamps for mastication
Hardly flyin', icy, colder, pole and stones are never swollen
Body rash from swatting chiggers, can't drop pounds, I got much bigger
Tongue's so hairy, peter teeters, fallin' balls look very scary
Snockered on my nightly liquor, snore away and trash my ticker
Gotten grosser, rotten smeller, feeble muscles, need a helper
Fear of full and choky spaces, dry cigars and men with cases
Gushin' vomit, pomegranates, milk on giblets, sloppin' piglets

Life on my block
What a crazy show...

Life on my block
What a way to go...phew!

[Short, breath-taking instrumental break]

Ivan Pavlov, Rival reflex, doggy strays, both hale and scrawny
Woofin' ham performs on Oprah, censors block the dog's salami
Way way stale, zap TV off and belt el Beam and feed the myna
Shave a cony, peel a lamb and sling the chowder, steam green cider
Dress for dinner, groaning hunger, slop some butter on the 'cumbers
Share the napkin, spread the foie gras, eating's awesome, ooh-aah ooh-aah
Good libations help us wander, slurp and swirl and sit and ponder
Lighter, brighter, funny, sunny, cooker, looker, mummy, tummy
She's the chef that thwarted hunger, hard we ate and now seem younger

Life on my block
Trusty lady won't scold me
Pot of turnips and chowder
Oh, my eats may hold me
(wo-wo-wo-wo)
Light drizzle stops
All the neighborhood droning
As the rest of my pain goes
My, there's no one phoning

Mission: remember--this break from our shock!

Bottle rockets, malice, speeding, purging, coughin', sirens screaming
Stitching limbs on awkward flunkies, naked lads and riot drunkies
(Wanna tame a tiger?)
Wedding rings and valley bling, easy stings and trafficking
Clever cons and Maseratis, paparazzi, jailbird parties
Blaring bursts from roaring lumens, mental girls with randy crewmen
Bums who plead, so poor indeed and needle needers...
Thieves and fences, momma fondlers, unicorns and anacondas
Feral cats, eager idols, alley hoods, bootie trash
(woo)
Gals that scorn ya, freaks that maim ya, rude dorks spitting, vamps that drain ya
Refugees and vegan fleas and slob debris and escargot, yeah, yeah
Block's way gritty, ooh, not pretty
(Block's way gritty, ooh, not pretty)

And that's just the good stuff.........Nice one, Leough.........I love all the entries of this, they seem like fun to do

You must live in LA....

Wow - never heard the longer version, and when we did ours I don't even think the lyrics were available - I had to listen over and over and pull them off the record...

Anyway, great concept, great job and lots of great subs. Momma drama and Springer watchin' were two of my faves.

BTW Leo - I forget to vote a lot. I don't vote on the OS's that I do not know, but often comment anyway, and sometimes even when I do a song that I DO know, I forget. Sorry for the oversight... :)

With Meriadoc on this. When I did my parody, I didn't know there was an extended dance play version! Very descriptive and makes me lament how dull my block really is...
And bootie trash, um, is that what I think it is? If so, do they take major credit cards and antibiotics?

Thanks everyone! Now I think I'll go have some chowder before tonight's fun starts.
