The Lyrics

You don't know what I put that organ through
All the whisky, Budweiser too
Lots of money on cigarettes
I took a chance and lost that old bet

I'm on that list that will spell me
I'd love to stay
Get me a new liver, from a son or daughter
Get me a new liver, from a traffic slaughter
Saving my ass, saving my ass

I don't know why my luck is so bad
I just need a break, and I'll be a good dad
I've done many things that I now regret
I'm just sixty, I don't want to go yet

I hope that list they will tell me
I'd love to stay
Get me a new liver, from a son or daughter
Get me a new liver, from a traffic slaughter
Saving my ass, saving my ass

Save me, cut me, sew me, shut me
So I can, so I can, so I can still do lots of sh*t
Sacrifice a daughter, so I get a liver
Drown someone in water, so I get a liver
Save my fat ass, save my fat ass

I don't know why my luck is so bad
All my troubles, has made me mad
Sixty candles, sinned through them all
And now I have my back up against the wall

I hope that list they will tell me
I'd love to stay
Get me a new liver, from a son or daughter
Get me a new liver, from a traffic slaughter
Saving my ass, saving my ass

I found myself thinking of David Crosby when I read this, but I'm giving you fives anyway. :)

Speaking as a decade police officer, I know that the original's from the 70s, namely 1978. Speaking as myself, I enjoyed this parody very much; sometimes when I hear TOS I think "Take me to the liver." But you did a good job here, so I'm gonna give you a perfect 5,5,5 vote.

Beat me to it, Highlander. I had a partially-written parody of "Take Me To The River" in storage, with lines like,

Make me a new liver
Clone genes from your daughter
Make me a new liver
Snip genes from your daughter
Copy it now!
Copy it now!

...but as we like to say on AmiRight when this kind of thing happens, "Now I don't have to!"
