The Lyrics

Grandpa got run over by a semi
Searching the highway curbs for gold
The truck driver didn't see him comin'
And now he's just a grease spot in the road

He always felt that he would find
Large amounts of dough and cash
Although all he ended up with
Was a very bad severe case of road rash

So than as we all buried him
And we laid him down to rest
We hope that they give us blessings
'Cause it will take forever to clean the mess

Grandpa got run over by a semi
Searching the highway curbs for gold
The truck driver didn't see him comin'
And now he's just a grease spot in the road

Making U-turns on the freeway
To find a rare golden chunk
Oh boy was he disappointed
When he found it was only a bag of junk

He'd pick up a dirty sweater
Or an old moldy milk crate
You know I can't help but wonder
Why he feels that all this useless junk is so great

Grandpa got run over by a semi
Searching the highway curbs for gold
The truck driver didn't see him comin'
And now he's just a grease spot in the road

Street sides are gonna miss him
He really kept them all clean
It's too bad you never met him
He is the biggest pack rat that you would have seen

We were so sad to see him go
When he was placed underground
But we didn't have to worry though
We buried him in a casket that he found

Grandpa got run over by a semi
Searching the highway curbs for gold
The truck driver didn't see him comin'
And now he's just a grease spot in the road

Sad...not the parody itself, mind you, but the poor ol' grandpa. 3-4-4.
