The Lyrics

it was the third of september
the day my dad was dismembered...yes, he was
it was out on the bay, where my daddy died
he never had a chance, it seemed
propeller had hit him...and that is what killed him
mama, i'm dependin' on you...to tell me the truth
mama just hung her head and said, son......

papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam
papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam

hey, mama...is it true what they say
that papa was high each day of his life
and mama, some bad talk goin' 'round
sayin' that papa smoked three big bombers
when he lost his life...could that be right ?
heard 'em say pa headed down to the beach and...
he fired up his boat with the engine a-screechin'
green cigarettes and fishin' took the life of my pa
mama just hung her head and said, son...

papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam
papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam

hey, mama...i heard papa caught himself on fast spinnin' blades
tell me, is that what sent papa to an early grave ?
folks say papa was spun like a wheel...is that the deal ?
hey, mama...they say papa never did too much drinkin'
but smokin' that weed really screwed up his thinkin'
mama, i'm dependin' on you...to tell me the truth
mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said, son...

papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam
papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam
papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam
papa liked to troll when stoned.....that dummy
and when he did he was accident prone
the boat capsized...he was tossed into the foam

I know how hard it is to parody this - I've been working on "Dubya is a Nixon Clone" for way too long! Take a bunch of fives - I wish they could go to 11!

Drivin' that boat
High on that dope
Davy Jones you'd better, watch your speed
Marlin ahead
Tuna behind
And you know that ocean's
Just tossed you fives.

Great job, Alvin, 5's - just the title had me cracking up. OH, and thanks for the 'mini-parody' in your comment, JD, that was fun, too.
