The Lyrics

Sorry to all those from West Virginia.
All the wheels keep on rolling
I start thinkin about their sin
Singin songs about the kinnland
I don't miss the families of ten
And I htink it's a sin, yes

Well, I think it's wrong to sing about her
But I hear so many people put her down
I hope Virginians will remember
Real men don't need family around anyhow

Sweet Home West Virginia,
Where your brother is your paw,
Sweet Home West Virginia,
Where your sister is your maw

In Virginny, there's no governor
So many women named Sue,
This normally does not bother me,
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth.

Sweet Home West Virginia,
Where your brother is your paw,
Sweet Home West Virginia,
Where your sister is your maw

Now, the gene pool needs some moppers
'Cuz they've been known to marry in the family too.
Not all are like this and such
But, that's the assumption of the crew,
Now how about you?

Sweet Home West Virginia,
Where your brother is your paw,
Sweet Home West Virginia,
Where your sister is your maw

Sweet Home West Virginia
Incestual family
Where the tree ain't true
Mostly 'cuz of all the Sues
Sweet Home West Virginia
Lord, I'm sorry for all you
Yea, Yea, Virginia ain't got the answer

Speaking as a decade policeman, I must say that TOS was from the 70's. (Saying this song was from the 80's would be just like saying that a 'current' song was from the 2010's, a decade which the world has not yet seen.) Speaking as myself, I loved the concept of this parody, even though I ain't never been to WV (Grammar Police, please write me a ticket).

West Virginia is a beautiful country, but it certainly has its problems. 5s

Nice one, Jonathan. I live in Virginia and I'm guessing you do too, since you're making fun of West Virginia. I like your parody. Hey, will someone please check out my 'Dr.Phil Should' parody of 'Dr.Feelgood' by Motley Crue. I'd really appreciate it since I'm new to this site and it's my first parody, so I'd really like some advice.
