The Lyrics

I got a little flask in my pocket
Gonna fill it with Jim Beam
Wanna take it to the football game, wanna
Cheer for my team
But each time we go
I hear the same old cheers
Always, "First and ten do it again
Throw the ball way down the field"
So I asked my honey,
"Give me a funny cheer to yell"
She said, "Go get me some fries
And keep your chants to yourself!"

I said, "Come on, Vanderlinden!
Why you gonna run that draw play?
You know it's what they're looking for
Just punt the ball away!"
That's when I dropped down my shorts and
yelled, "WATERMELON RIND!"
She said, "Stop pointing at the scoreboard,
Jeff, YOUR team just fell behind!"
Oh, my honey, my baby
Give me a funny cheer to yell
She said, "Go get me some fries
And keep your chants to yourself!"

My team was playin real bad
And I was about to give in
That's when she started talkin about team pride
And the receiver's open!
I said, "Run a post pattern the defense is too slow!"
She said, "E-X-L-A-X
What's that make you do? GO! GO! GO!"
Oh, my honey, my baby
Gave me a funny cheer to yell
I went and got her some fries
And kept my chants to myself!

*hums the tune* Your song made me laugh, and so I gave you three 5's

I thought this was going to be about Hare Krishnas at the airport...

"Don't hand me no flyers and keep your chants to yourself!" Merry, that's actually a really good idea. You (and Pippen) should run with it!

Very funny title, very funny parody.

Another Georgia Satellites parody :-) I don't usually go for sport songs (Little Bo Peep's about my limit for this one), but this is kinda fun.
EmiLoca - July 12, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Well done, Jeff Reuben! Definitely worth the trouble of toiling for fifteen minutes trying to get the darn original song to download.
Phil Alexander - July 13, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, EmiLoca, if you've taken so much time getting the original, it would be a terrible waste to miss another one to the same tune, wouldn't it? (http://www.amiright.com/parody/80s/georgiasatellites0.shtml) ;-)

Funny stuff; also liked your take on Merry's Krishna idea.

"Merry Krishna." Heh heh.
Another nice one, Jeffaroo. So you dropped your shorts and "pointed" at the scoreboard? Must have been a very exciting game!

(SOTM) !!!aah-ah-ah-ooM (patented 'laughing backwards' for bizarre parodies such as this... I mean, Watermelon Rind? WTF?!) Funny stuff, but Second Chants Draw.
Johnny D - July 27, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above!

Funny stuff Jeff! Re yuor suggestion, I think my "chants's" of getting Merry to agree to doing a Georgia Satellites parody are, frankly, NIL! Shame, 'cause I like the song!

Nice parody. Great ending. Brief comment. Great job (Jeff).
ethan - July 31, 2004 - Report this comment
reads pretty well but i don't know the original song. And i don't believe in the mandatory downloading of contest songs because not downloading encourages using well-known songs. I know it's a matter of opinion what's well known to some extent but not completely... anyway gotta get on to the next entry
