The Lyrics

Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar
Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar

Grandma can cuss like a sailor
Believe me
Cuss like a sailor
Calls Gramps an "f"-ing "b"
Grandma can cuss like a sailor
With much glee
Oh, yes, she's beyond all reason

Cuss the grocer
'cause the brisket looks like crap
Cuss the grandkids
They won't sit on her lap
Cuss the birdies
Too loud for her nap
Oh, no, there's no off-season


Grandma can cuss like a sailor
Believe me
Cuss like a sailor
Calls Gramps an "f"-ing "b"
Grandma can cuss like a sailor
With much glee
Yes, she's beyond all reason

Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar
Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar
Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar
Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar

Grandma can cuss like a sailor
She is free
Cuss like a sailor
I feel like I'm gonna pee
Grandma can cuss like a sailor
with much glee
Yes, she's beyond all reason

Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar
Grams keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the vulgar

Not bad, Gianni. Pacing was good, and funny idea of grandma swearing, but the "feel like I'm gonna pee" clunked a little. Something like "Laughing so hard I might pee" may have worked better. 544

554 here from me...not too much to work with after that second verse...what could have been done to avoid the repetition? (rhetorically speaking)
Gianni - February 05, 2008 - Report this comment
Valid question, Agrimorfee, rhetorical or not. As a new-comer, I guess I should ask the question about those very conventions. For example, should we as parodists stick to the original repetition in the song, or look to create new words for each repetition?

Sir, I'm so relieved that I attended the D. Campagna charm school as a teen!
