Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song virtually wrote itself after I saw this Youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSEaHyzbqTA
The drugs you've done have blown your mind
you can't think straight - your head's up your behind
Your hippie way of living is what caused your maladies
I can't say I'm all that shocked...that you talk to trees
that you talk to trees

CHORUS:

I'm tired of yellin' women 'round these old-growth trees
Who do they think hears
their apologies?
It's like a bunch of gibbons wearing hosiery
They make a big fuss
roll in the dust
and end up on TV
I think I'd rather have the gibbons live at home with me


Like other plants, trees have a soul
so remember that with every joint you roll
If 'stupid' could be purchased, you'd have a mo-nop-o-ly
And if I could compare IQs, you’d lose to the trees
The forest would agree

CHORUS

I'm tired of yellin' women 'round these old-growth trees
Who do they think hears?
their apologies?
It's like a bunch of gibbons wearing hosiery
They make a big fuss
roll in the dust
and end up on TV
I think I'd rather have the gibbons live at home with me

Now a bulldozer is clearing
out another space for me
so I can have a place to park my new S...U...V...
