The Lyrics

Hey do it now
yeah hey

Yeah,
There was a hair band singer
Playin' in a death metal band
He had no problems before yeah
Hearing some new country band
And everything around me,
yeah
Feeling like they just had to go
And I decided quickly,
Yes I did
To line dance down and check out the show
Yeah they was

Drinkin' and smokin'
and fightin' and complainin'
And just when it hit me some toothless redneck slurred something like
Play that country music Elroy
Play that country music right
Play that country music Elroy
Pick out your boogers and play that country music till you die
Till you die,
oh till you die

Gonna play that whiskey drinkin' country music, yeah

Spoken:
Hey wait a minute
At first it felt real greasy
Changin' to country music
Honky tonks were so sleazy
I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now its so much safer
it's so much safer
I'm kicking ass in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin'
no I won't
Of how I learned my lesson that day

When they were...
Drinkin' and smokin'
and fightin' and complainin'
And just when it hit me some toothless cracker slurred something like
Play that country music Elroy
Play that country music right
Play that country music Elroy
Pick out your boogers and play that country music till you die
Till you die,
oh till you die

They shouted play that country music
Play that country music
Play that country music
Gotta keep on playin'
country music
Play that country music

I had created this parody before I had found out that it was already done, so I do apologize for my oversight.

Great job, Tim!

To "Parody Police": If http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/wildcherry6.shtml is entirely verbatim to this one, then you can ticket it. But if it's not, then don't go spouting off. A parody title can be used multiple times; there's no law that says it can only be used once.

Responding to a comment made almost one thousand days ago: The parody whose URL you quoted is different altogether, so Tim Hall is safe on this one.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
