The Lyrics

One strand of genetic compound,
I said, one strand, as it wraps all around,
I said, one strand, is all that needs be found,
They can tell who is your pappy.

Young man, there's a way you can know,
I said, young man, who is your daddy-o,
They can compare, to a strand that will bind,
You can trace back your fam'ly line.

I made Dad pay, using my DNA,
I made Dad pay, using my DNA.
Then, I went to the place of my father's employ,
Now his paycheck I so enjoys.

I made Dad pay, using my DNA,
I made Dad pay, using my DNA.
I got my-self some green,
All I did was to squeal,
As my heritage did reveal.

Young man, get a paycheck for free,
I said, young man, do you have no daddy?
I said, young man, just let them check your genes,
You can make him pay for his fling.

No one does it all by herself,
I said, that man caused your mother to whelp,
Make the truth bear, with some your DNA,
Get yourself a weekly pay day.

I made Dad pay, using my DNA,
I made Dad pay, using my DNA.
Then, I went to the place of my father's employ,
Now his paycheck I so enjoys.

I made Dad pay, using my DNA,
I made Dad pay, using my DNA.
I got myself some green,
All I did was to squeal,
As my heritage did reveal.

Young man, they must pay their own dues,
I say, they got to pay up for their screws,
I know, I gave that old man a surprise,
When that DNA put me wise.

Take out all of the mystery,
Find your old man, take a test can't be beat.
Use some trace-ware from your own DNA,
It can start a brand new payday.

I've seen a lot of YMCA parodies, but this has to be one of the most original... lol

Several verses at the end of this song were omitted even though they all showed up in the preview submission. I am resubmitting this parody so it's full length will post again tomorrow. Not sure what the problem was but at least four verses at the end were omitted.

Something is apparently wrong with the site today. Adagio just told me she submitted a song and it didn't post at all. I have resubmitted this one.

And thanks Laurence and MrMacphisto for your votes and comments.

I wasn't sure at first, but your form conquered the song. I'll look for the revision tomorrow.

I'm guessing this won't play well in South Carolina.
