The Lyrics

From the album "The Inaccurate Confection".
Mama and Daddy and I were in debt
The ceiling would leak, the floors would get wet
We had to sell our only cow
They wanted to trade me

Daddy was big and built like King Kong
He was a soldier who fought the Vietcong
His nose had a big fat wart
And he was always drinking

After a dinner of sauerkraut
Mama would go to wash her hair out
It was such an awful mess—I was just a baby

Mama used bleach, Daddy never made a peep
Mama used bleach while I was counting sheep
And it made her blind, and it was driving me crazy
Driving me crazy, mmm...

Why would it always frustrate me?
It was not any infirmity
By the morning light
It would look real nice
But my nose would assuredly pick it up
And my stomach would churn and then I would throw up
The nocturnal colorings came at such a price

Mommy, Mommy, why couldn't you just be
A true brunette? It's eating me
Up inside. You're messing up now.
Do you not love? Do you not love me?

Mama used bleach, the price was pretty steep
Mama used bleach while I was counting sheep
And I'm gping crazy
Will you stop dying it, Mommy?
Will you stop dying?
Will you stop dying?

HEY AGRI. . .do you think you could fix this one? I mean the pacing and everything really need work (It's an old piece by you), but the idea is flawless. . .if you can fix it, Papa Don't Preach backing track is open for use, I'd like to do this one for you, that or I can edit it if you don't mind and send it to you for your approval. . .up to you buddy

555 as there is definitely something about this parody . . . I liked the ~ sauerKraut vs wash her hair out ~ great lines that would be most appreciated on the Western Shores of Lake Michigan!! How about editing//adding a line of 'hot 'brats' ??

Dave, looking at it now, I see how a few prepositions can stretch out the pacing blips, but I'm not really interested in resubmitting this here. This wasn't really intended to be a humorous parody, but more on my experimental line. However, PM on the board or e-mail me if you really have the urge to get this remade into a recording of your calibre.
Thanks littleKrautCake. I think I'll leave that couplet the way it is, it's wonderfully surreal IMO that the family eats nothing but sauerkraut for the meal.
