The Lyrics

The state of Virginia's House of Delegates passed a bill Tuesday authorizing a $50 fine for anyone who wears their pants low enough to see their underwear.
So, the House took a vote today
If boxers show you'll have to pay
They said if you have pride, keep your undies inside
Cause if you don't, we're gonna fine you
So I, I let my pants fall again
Resting below my rear end
Why would I take that chance? Cause I ditched underpants
And so tonight, there'll be a full moon

I'm gonna show off my behind, but I won't pay a fine
Commando
I'm gonna make you grin and bare, my naked derriere
Commando
I'm gonna tune out all your rants, about my underpants
Commando
My butt's nude

And so, Virginia won't tolerate
Those tighty-whities on display
You can't dress how you please, cover your BVDs
You better comply, or get a citation
So, if your pants are down too low
Make sure your underwear don't show
Wish they'd cut me some slack, they got stuck in my crack
That don't feel right, so I'm gonna lose 'em

I'm gonna stick with my low-rides, and show off my backside
Commando
And now I'm finished with wedgies, does that makes you edgy?
Commando
And if you think I have no class, you can kiss my a$s
Commando

Why do I
Feel like I'm tempting fate?
When I wear, I'm wearing my low-rides girl
It shouldn't cause a debate
So, take a stand girl
Cause the more you show the better
Now send a letter
To the lawmakers in your state

If, the lawyers still act prude
I might address them in the nude
I hope that they get a clue

Boy, it's always a thrill to see true democracy in action - and to see state legislature's tackling the really pressing, critical issues instead of creating more meaningless clutter/BS laws to clog the process further. 5's...nice Job, JeffR.

Calvin Klein should offer to pay any convicted-underwear-miscreant's fine - what a PR opportunity - 555 Jeff

Love it! Especially getting addressed in the nude, what a hoot. I would have to sell tickets if my clients showed up in the nude!

Thanks Oddy, Leo, Paul and Stuart. Stu, can we get the "Full Monty" group to play the lawyers at the end of the video?

I am seriously considering pulling my work trousers down around my hips in protest, but I don't have a clue how I'm going to walk...

Ash, lets just say I guarantee I won't be fined =)

We bastards are muc htoo regal for those britches. Stick it to the man, Jeff! Great rhymes and a topic that bears the truth of the matter. (Personally I find bikinis to be much more offensive, so maybe all you chicks should follow Jeff's lead here...)

...insinuating that you sunbathe at beaches naked. Still crackin', Jeff!

(ABC05) Interesting song, but why 'Commando'? I don't see what it has to do with the song content.
Jeff Reuben - April 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Ag...never heard the term "Going Commando?" Look it up...or catch the episode of friends: Going Commando=no undies (guess I could have put that in the header)

(ABC-C) This bill was totally necessary and has much merit. Why, you may ask do I say this? Because everyone knows that crack kills.

C - I really think you guys need to organize a million-Monty-march to fight this legislation. ;)
