The Lyrics

its a risky move to swat 'em
i did, foolishly
they're all just crazy critters
if you're askin' me
i've got the smelliest body
there could ever be
go fill up the tub
so i can bathe in peace

mama told me that i stunk
mama told me that i stunk
that ain't the way to catch skunks...no

open up the windows
cause i'm stinkin' up the room
i'm gaggin' and i'm chokin'
from the smell of their perfume
cause that critter i was strokin'
responded to my pet
opened up with ammo...what the ???
why am i all wet ?

mama told me that i stunk
mama told me that i stunk
she said...that ain't the way to catch skunks...son
that ain't the way to catch skunks...son

that little guy was blastin'
i was knocked down by the force
i'm lookin' like a moron
embarrassing, of course
i've seen those smelly things
never petted one before
don't know why i did
i don't wanna pet no more

mama told me that i stunk
mama told me that i stunk
she said...that ain't the way to catch skunks...son
that ain't the way to catch skunks...son

mama told me...mama told me...mama told me
told me...told me
that ain't the way to catch skunks...whoa, yeah yeah
mama told me that i stunk
mama, mama, mama told me
that ain't the way to catch skunks

that ain't the way to catch skunks...no
that ain't the way to catch skunks...son
that ain't the way to catch skunks...no
that ain't the way to catch skunks...son

LOLOL!! Such a funny run in with critters! I was also hoping when I saw the authors of the OS that you did right by it, since I really like that group. No let down there...even on one line! 5's

This is pretty good, Al...I'm more familiar with the Stereophonics version, but I could still sing along.
