The Lyrics

Bum Shack = (More politically correct) A Humane Society for the Displaced With An Urge to Dance
If you see a rugged sign behind your cardboard box that says 15 bus stops to the...

Bum Shack!

Bum Shack, yeah

We're collecting our neighbors, lookin' for the hobo-house
Heading for the hobo-house, hobo-house
I got me a car, it has no engine and we can't get down to the Bum Shack
I got me a dumpster, it fits around 20, so hurry up and bring your cup of money!

The Bum Shack is a smelly old shack where
Bums can get together
Bum Shack, baby, Bum Shack, bay-bee
Bum Shack, baby, Bum Shack
Bum Shack, baby, Bum Shack
Bums, baby, that's where they're at
Ho-bo's baby, that's where they're at

Sign says...woo...stay away rats
There're mouse traps at the Bum Shack!
Well it's set way back in a dark old alley
Near the trash can and the pot-sellin' man

Garbage on the tables
Garbage on the Shack floor
Garbage at the entrance
Garbage everywhere

The Bum Shack is a smelly old place where
Bums can get together
Bum Shack baby....
Bum Shack baby!
Bum Shack, that's where they're at

Bum Shack that's where they're at
Coughing and a gagging,
Pilf'rin' and a stealin'
Wearing Goodwill clothes
The whole Shack scatters
When cops bust us all
For pot, for pot, for pot

All the bums are nasty, all the bums are grodie, baby
Nasty little shack! Nasty little shack!

Dance in the dumspter, I've got bread that is stale
When you taste it, you'll wail!
I got me a car, it's missin' the transmission
So hop in, it's free, and no admission!

The Bum Shack is a smelly old place where
Bums can get together
Bum Shack, baby
Bum Shack bay-bee
Bum Shack, baby, Bum Shack
Bum Shack, baby, Bum Shack
Ho-bo's, baby, that's where they're at

Pound, pound, pound on the cardboard

Pound a little harder, hobo

Pound, pound, pound, on the cardboard

The shack's collapsing!

Pound, pound, pound, on the cardboard
Pound, pound, pound on the card-
Pound, pound, pound, on the cardboard
Pound, pound

You've what?!!...Bum Shack's busted!

Bum Shack, killed the, Bum Shack
Bum Shack, killed the, Bum Shack
Bum Shack, killed the, Bum Shack
Bums, baby, that's where they're at

Great improvement to the original. Funny stuff.

Loved it! The sad thing is that most bums make more money than you and me and live in places that make OUR dwellings look like Bum Shacks!
