The Lyrics

i had nothing to do, on that cold afternoon
so i watched a film with three friends of mine
it came from north manitoba
and the filty word quota
seemed a little over the line
they swear like hell
but i'm not old-fashioned...the flick's alright

well, our eyes were unblinkin'...we all were thinkin'
that this movie's really fun to see
and we'll be beggin'...our parents for bread
to go out and see it once more
they swear like hell
there ain't a movie in the land, so fine

remember, there's certain parties, that don't find it arty
they think crude humor is low
we say "screw you, and your out-of-date views...
we don't care if language is blue "
they swear like hell
its quite unrefined, but i don't mind

but my folks say that i'm crossin' the line
cause i cuss without even tryin'
now, they're washin' my mouth out
tryin' to get their message through

since its been on, my inhibition's gone

i got in trouble when my parents found...
the words i expound
were from a film by a canadian pair
they overheard me curse, but it could have been worse
to phil and terrance, i can't compare
cause they swear like hell
mrs. broflovski is startin' to fume

my folks are actin' cold, and i'm gettin' told
that my manners are needin' some work
if i don't talk just so, i'll be home all alone
grounded till i've had quite enough
cause i swear like hell
my folks object to my dialect

and my folks say that i'm crossin' the line
cause i cuss without even tryin'
now, they're washin' my mouth out
tryin' to get their message through

Drat! Everytime I think of a song I want to parody, you get to it first... Love the line "my folks object to my dialect.." :-)
