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 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.

My DNA
I found him using my DNA.
One strand. one strand, of genetic compound,
One strand one strand, as it wraps all around.

My DNA
Found him using my own DNA,
Young man, young man, take out all mystery,
Young man, young man, learn your fam'ly hist'ry.

My DNA
I found him using my DNA.
No man, no man, does it all by herself,
Than man, that man, caused your mother to whelp.

My DNA, My DNA

Good work... but will your parody hold up in court? It does fit, so I will acquit.

Grrrreat job, GD'R. I'm kinda wondering why you chose "enjoys" instead of "enjoy" to rhyme with "employ" - not a criticism, just curious. Lotsa great lines in this. Excellent job.
