The Lyrics

I'm involved in a forum over at What this site is about is those emails you get from people overseas who say they have millions of dollars they need you to help them transfer, and if you help, you can keep a percentage. Well, one of these scams is what's called a "Wash-wash" w what this is about is that they try to set up a meeting with the victim, and then they bring out stacks of money covered in black ink. Through slight of hand tricks, they make it appear as if they can wash the ink off the money. The catch is that they only have enough of the "chemical" required to take the ink off for a demo. This is where they get you for money to supposedly by more of the washing chemical. Usually the cash is carried in a Trunk Box. For more info on this type of scam, you are invited to go to
If you see a faded sign by the side of the road that says
Twenty million in the ... Trunk Box! Trunk Box yeah
I'm headin' down the Sagbama highway, lookin' for the trunk hideaway
Heading for the Trunk hideaway, trunk hideaway,
I got me a car, it's as big as a whale and we're headin' on down
To the Trunk Box
I got me a trunkbox, it holds about 20
So hurry up and bring your modality money!

The Trunk Boxis a little old place where we can do a wash-wash!
Trunk Box! baby, Trunk Box! bay-bee.
Trnkbaby, that's where it's at, Ooo Trunk baby, that's where it's at

Sign says.. Woo... stay away fools, 'cause Lagos lads rule at the Trunk Box!
Well it's set way back in the middle of a field,
In a funky warehouse, and I gotta get back

Black ink on the tens
Black ink on the twenties
Black ink on the fifties
Black ink on the hundreds

The Trunk Box is a little old place where we can do a wash-wash!
Trunk Box! baby, Trunk Box! bay-bee.
Trunk baby, that's where it's at, Ooo Trunk baby, that's where it's at

Scammin' and a cursin', washin' and a watchin', seein' next to nothing
Cash is as dark as an oven
The whole box shimmies! The whole box shimmies when everybody's
scammin' again and again and again!
Everybody's washin', everybody's watchin' baby!
Lads linin' up outside just to get cash
Everybody's washin', everybody's watchin' baby
Funky little box! Funky little box!

Hop in my Chrysler, it's as big as a whale and it's about to set sail!
I got me a box, it holds about 20
So come on and bring your modality money.

Wash wash wash on the cash baby! Wash a little harder!
Wash wash wash on the cash baby! I can't hear you
Your what?... Mon-ney!, Washing!
Trunk box, baby Trunk box!
Trunk baby, that's where it's at
Scammin' and a cursin', washin' and a watchin' at the trunk box!

The parody had excellent content, but I think you got the original song title and the parody song title backwards.
