The Lyrics

So I wouldn't feel bad about not writing a new song for the first round of the Decathlon, I finally came up with a song to a band and original song that I wanted to parody for awhile now...
My bike has a gun rack
Cousins I romance although they’re cross-eyed
When the moonshine flows (Whoa!)
I shower in slime, It won’t clean off my grime
This double wide… Is my mansion (Is my mansion)

My dogs are yowling
A sound that I’m used to
“Ah! Shut up Rover!” (Slamming the window)
Road kill we’re eating with Spam and Bud Lite
We’re rugged men in West Virginia!!!

I might be a redneck!!!
Phone company is “Taco Bell”
I might be a redneck!!!
My wife gave birth and she couldn’t tell

Homemade fur coat, I’ve seen it crawl
On the day I was born the doctor had slapped my mom
When I once cut my grass I found an old car
I got scars from “hiding hamsters”
My taxidermist
Pays me for local strays
My tuxedo coat has cut off sleeves
I spit chewing tobacco from my bed at night
Ignore my bride she does the same thing on her side

I might be a redneck!!!
Stomp on the gas with my bare feet
I might be a redneck!!!
Cause deep fried rat is my favorite treat
I might be a redneck!!!
My eyes are immune to mace and paper spray
I might be a redneck!!!
If you use soap we’ll all call you gay

(Drop the fiddle Jethro it’s time for a Guitar Solo)

My bowls are hubcaps
Slurping down baked beans
This is the style of us Confederates
My mullet’s oily, Exxon bought from me
Jeff Gordon’s like God (There’s no difference between)

I might be a redneck!!!
I never shave… My beard home’s birds
I might be a redneck!!!
A raccoon pet isn’t that absurd
I might be a redneck!!!
Shotgun I grabbed put holes in roofs
I might be a redneck!!!
I opened this beer and lost my last tooth

(“Git’r Done!” “Yee-Haw!”)

Good self-depreciating parody, maybe the title line was a bit stretched but you know what the say; there's no pace like home!

Pretty good parody, but most rednecks hate Jeff Gordon.

Hey, are you calling me a redneck? Geez *one* little hamster, and ya never live it down. 555, and 'scuse me, gotta run -- gotta get to the hospital and have this mole removed. .... oh, and TT is thanking his lucky stars that turtles wouldn't fit.

A hit song straight from the trailer parks! Yee-haaaa!!!! Best of luck on the Decath, 'Thias (and that goes for everyone who's participating as well)! Here's 5 red pickup trucks, 5 cold beers, and 5 shotguns for this one!

DKTOS, but I like your description of the Republican party.

John Barry, shameful stereotyping. Regardless of whether you agree with my views, I've worked very hard all my life to overcome one kind of bigotry, and now you introduce another. I switched from Dem to GOP over my differences with Jimmy Carter .... They told me you were a very bright man -- would you reconsider that remark?

Very good! Excellent OS, hilarious and descriptive content, and fits well with the Decathlon restrictions. 555

(Dec 3) Ah so THAT'S what a redneck is...crazy! DKTOS, but very well written. Funny too. 555!

Lots of jokes in here. I feel like the pacing of your OS choice made your poetry harder to appreciate, but your theme and OS fit perfectly for the contest

Decathlon...a couple of the jokes were lost on me..(My wife gave birth and she couldn’t tell ??)...but overall this was a great tribute to Redneck culture. Nicely done!
Matthias - September 30, 2009 - Report this comment
Arwen: That joke was meant as a "My wife has given birth soooo many times that when she popped out another one she didn't even notice"

Funny stuff. Like this better than your first choice. Decdent take on the Foxworthy stuff
Silver Power - October 02, 2009 - Report this comment
"This double wide… Is my mansion" was one of my favorite lines. You might be a redneck if you call it a 'pick-em-up truck'. You're definitely a redneck if you call it a 'string-em-up truck'. [No offense to rednecks, but my experience with them is that they're usually racist, which I can't stand]. Regardless, I give this a 555!

SOTM - Nice one! I think you managed to fit into this parody just about every redneck joke and stereotype ever created, whether by Jeff Foxworthy or otherwise.
Peter Andersson - October 12, 2009 - Report this comment
There's a redneck couple on the Simpsons (at least that's my interpretation) - They're the most underused characters of the whole show IMHO. As for this parody I'd be interested in knowing how you came up with the idea of using a Queensryche song for the theme, not a natural connection in my book. :-)

SOTM Very funny one, Matthias!!
Glen S - October 17, 2009 - Report this comment
See above, and still enjoyed the many jokes you managed to fit in this, Matt.

Matt - First let me say that this parody accurately portrays what the idea of a redneck is today. I loved the humor and the parody is well written. One of my favorite Foxworthy lines is "You might be a redneck if you think fast food is hitting a deer with your pickup at 60 MPH. The Taco Bell line was really funny.

The original redneck was neither necessairly bigotted or confederate. Here is how the term redneck originated:

In 1921, 10-15,000 unionized coal miners from West Virginia and Virginia marched on Mingo County, West Virginia to support the struggle of non-unionized miners. Legend has it that a reporter from New York coined the term "redneck" because the union miners tied red bandanas around their necks to identify themselves. What resulted was the bloodiest battle fought on American soil since the Civil War - the Battle of Blair Mountain. The miners never made it to Mingo County - instead, the union uprising was put down in Logan County by a private army raised by the mine owners. Many of the union miners were brought to trial and were railroaded.

And West Virginia was never a confederate state. West Virginia broke away from Virginia in 1863 and became a union state.

. . . somehow I didn't see this one, SquireMatthias; and I adore those redNecks, especially when they're " strapped in Chaps"
Max Power - October 23, 2009 - Report this comment
I thought it was due to sunburn on their necks.

SOTM-Points for Queensryche! I've seen them perform this in concert...the whole Mindcrime album is awesome. Funny Foxworthy sendup of the OS, i also liked the Taco Bell line.

(SOTM) See above! Holy crap, the security code is JMR, which is my younger brother's initials, and he dresses like a bogan, which is the Aussie version of a redneck ZOMG.
