The Lyrics

See the guys standing at the door
They come on business, don't you know
Now they knock so loud (oh whey oh)
They're calling out now you gotta go

Cop is there now too
Six suv's parked on the street
It's time to move (gotta go)
Boxes come out on the lawn, you bet

Sheriff types with the court papers say
Time for an eviction

The U Haul truck pulls up soon
They're sliding chairs out of the door
They've got to move (gotta go)
You're glad it's not you they've come here for

The balls and bikes out on the yard
All gathered up and put away
When the landlord rings (time to go)
There's an eviction

All the kids in the neighborhood say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Looks like an eviction

Take your stuff off the street, don't look back
Paying rent, guess you couldn't hack
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
And take your junky Cadillac

If you want to find all the cops
They're hanging out on our street tonight
They come kick ass (oh ay oh)
Get the dead beats off the block

All the neighbors gawk, through their blinds
It ain't no party, this is grim
Everybody knows (oh ay oh)
They're seeing an eviction

All the cops are now driving away
ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Looks like an eviction..

Tim, unfortunately, this is one of those that comes from real life, seeing it happen. So "powerful" was a good description.

Very creative, Royce. I liked this one. ;)
John Jenkins - February 23, 2005 - Report this comment
Poignant parody, Royce. It has to be a sobering experience to witness an eviction; but, since a landlord usually cannot evict a tenant until he is at least 3 months behind on the rent, I have some sympathy for the landlords, too.

555 for you, while evictions aren't particularly funny, this may be a possible SOTM runner up atleast.
