The Lyrics

Doy!
Out on the street I can burn ants
But eggs on sidewalks just won't get done.
Not hot enough on my engine and I can't cook at all with the sun.
Oh no
I'm gonna switch it to electric barbeque
Then we won't need a lighter.
Oh
I'm gonna switch it to electric barbeque
And then we'll make the fire.

Taking too long with the charcoal
They won't turn gray for a week.
The propane gas is a no-go
I might blow up half of our street
Good God
I'm gonna switch it to electric barbeque...
Oh yeah
oh yeah
oh yeah
oh yeah

Oh Lord
I'm gonna switch it to electric barbeque . . .

I've got the burgers all ready. Slap some cheese on that bun.
Charbroiling steak is so easy and now I can feed everyone.
Oh yeah
Now that I've switched it to electric barbeque
I'm burning meat
This can't be beat

Here in my backyard in the west side of town.
Oh
Now that I've switched it to electric barbeque
Oh
Now that I've switched it to electric barbeque

This is really good! The original is my favorite song to break-dance to. Yes, even though I'll be 36 in two months, I still am limber enough to break-dance, would you believe it? So get down and have some 5's.--MM

Jan, It's no wonder you're the Parody Queen of Olympia. Very well done in more ways than one!
