The Lyrics

DKTOS? Click here
I do my part, I pay my dime.
Now I help to gnaw a big bite out of crime
It's due to me the P.O.W.s will soon be free!
It doesn't take much work to do -- simple as could be!

It's.. done.. ea..sil..y,

Applied a bunch of stickers to my S.U.V.
This one over here,
Stamps out H.I.V.
(H.I.V.)

This slogan, here, is fixin' our e-con-o-my,
Supportin' the troops
And veteran groups,
Ending poverty!
It's all by stickin' helpful stickers on my S.U.V!

Cure cancer, end lung disease
Win the war on terror single hand-ed-ly
Your little kid is missing? He'll be found because of me!
A simple plastic sticker's all we need to keep us free!
Achieve a lasting peace!

A pile of legislation will be his-to-ry
We'll get four more years
Cheaper gas-o-line
(Gas for free!)
Kids say no to drugs and it's because of me,
I've straightened the fags,
Protected my flag,
Pa-tri-otic-'ly!
And I'll convert the whole wide world to Chris-ti-an-it-y!

Will the home team's fans be cheering?
In the bag, it's guaranteed!
I've stuck their mascot's sticker on my S.U.V.!

I'll bring 'em home, mmm hmm.

(Buy a sticker for your S.U.V.
Buy a sticker for your S.U.V.
Buy a sticker for your S.U.V.

Buy a sticker for your S.U.V.
Buy a sticker for your S.U.V.
Buy a sticker for your S.U.V.)

Oh this is excellent - and what a perfect choice for the Original Song!!! "Straightened the fags, protected my flag" was a gem! And you pick on both sides so left and right will be equally offended and appeased - lol! 555 and well-deserved!

Love this! Of course, we know the real solution to these problems -- Live-aid concerts!
Melhi - July 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Rex! True, but Live Aid is so much work... you have to remember what time it's going to be on and which channel, pick up the remote and push buttons some of its buttons and then leap across the room to lick the television screen whenever there's a close-up of Billie Joe... What? I'm the only one? The devil you say! ;)

Thanx for providing the link, it confirmed what I'd already guessed, that with also pacing taking into consideration this one is definitely your second in SOTM territory in just a few days. 555, but as you've already noticed I myself have already taken it upon me to "win the war on terror single hand-ed-ly". ;-)

Ah, what the heck, I'll plug for it anyway:

Thanks K1 (you're trying to train me to call you Peter, aren't you?... Ok... here goes...) Thanks Peter. :) Oh yesssss, I noticed that you had brought that line of mine to life, already -- that parody of yours is FABULOUS -- I wish I'd thought of it, first and the last time I checked not NEARLY enough people had had the pleasure, yet! I'm sooo glad you plugged it! Folks, seriously, if you haven't already, go check out K1's (Peter's) "If You Don't Know Who To Come For, Come For Me!" You'll be so glad you did!

Wonderful, Melhi, brilliant and funny! This past weekend my wife and I were at our local supermarket in Concord, Massachusetts, and we saw an S.U.V. in the parking lot with a bumper-sticker that said, "Simplify, Simplify". That's a quote from Henry David Thoreau, author of "Walden", former famous Concord resident, and spiritual grandfather of the environmental movement. When we were leaving the parking lot, the driver of that S.U.V. was getting into his muscle-wagon .... when he drove past us, I rolled down my window and said to him, "Simplify, simplify." I don't think he got it.
Melhi - July 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Johnny D.! I'm ROFLMAO at your story, too! I love that you actually said that out loud to him -- that he had the sticker is funny enough, but that he didn't seem to get it is just TOO priceless! You know, you *really* ought to send that one, exactly as written above, to the Reader's Digest. :)

Melhi, this is just brilliant. I, for one am beyond tired of seeing the "Support Our Troops" magnets around here, so when I saw one that said "Support Strippers" in the same fashion, I snapped it up immediately!

And before I get jumped on for being a traitor, let me just say that I absolutely support the troops overseas. I just get really tired of all the people who think that slapping a magnet on their car fulfills their "Patriotic Duty." I have to wonder how many of those people have actually sent care packages abroad, or who *gulp* want to try and bring those wonderful troops home...

Anyway Melhi, fabulous job here!
Melhi - July 14, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks AKA! I feel exactly the same way! I saw an advertisement for one, the other day, that said something along the lines of "Support the Chinese Sweatshop That Makes These Stupid Ribbon Magnets" -- I'm thinking about ordering one of those for each of our vehicles... just a matter of finding the ad again.

Love it, Mel. Great rhymes and TMGLTM. One of the best ones I've seen is a ribbon sticker that says Support Our Ribbons. I'm not convinced it'll work, though - my Nice People Swallow sticker hasn't changed things much.

Thanks Agrimorfee! I'm waiting for the late night stupid-bracelet infomercials to begin... I can hear Sally Struthers' voice, now: "For just $1, you too can feel like you're helping a worthy cause... and what's more, by jumping on this trend, while it's hot and wearing these unattractive bracelets that cost only a fraction of a penny each to manufacture, other morons just like you will think you're some kind of hero, too! That's right, for just one measly little dollar, about the same as it costs us to pay one of our six year old sweatshop workers for an entire year, you can con the whole world into believing that you give a *bleep* and are doing something about it -- *without actually doing either one!*"

(SOTM) After re-reading both parodies, I apologize for the 444. Although they are similar, they are both original and, in my opinion, yours is the better parody.

Yeah, but what if they are hip, then they will say "yeah, we down with spam, spam be our homey." Maybe a "We Slam Spam!" or "If you can't play nice, get off the internet!" or "You spam, we slam" or "You a spammer? go in slammer!"

This parody reminds me of a particularly stinging line from Phil Ochs' song, "Love Me, I'm A Liberal": "I'll send all the money you ask for/but don't ask me to come on along/and love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal." LOL funny with a serious underlying social message.
