The Lyrics

Al Bundy and "Married With Children" is still on regularly in Sweden. If I can't sleep there's a fair chance there's a top episodes rerun on somewhere. This parody is about the episode "Damn Bundys" where Al sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for him as QB "Shoehorn Bundy" leading the Chicago Bears to the Superbowl. The fint print being (of course) that leading to and winning are two different things so once at the Superbowl Al gets sacked and tackled to death during the first play, then promptly goes to Hell (where he gets to live an eternity on weenie tots, and that's just for starters).

In the spirit of artistic licence I have replaced the repeated teeth/thing lines endings with real rhymes. A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
He's Al the Shoehorn, his soul he'd yield
Rookie season shoe-in, for MVP on field
He's Al the Shoehorn, he broght the heat
Because he knew he had to cheat

He sold his soul so he could join Chicago Bears
But when he got famous thought it wasn't fair
He's Al the Shoehorn, with stinky feet
The jock itch's also not that neat

Superbowl and Old Scratch won't guide his hand
So when hit off the grass it looked he'd never land
He's Al the Shoehorn, he didn't kneel
Rookie season shoe-in, he died out on field
He's Al the Shoehorn, he went to Hell
Because he thought that be real swell

Down in Hell there was the Devil calling shots
But Al was much too busy enjoying weenie tots
He's Al the Shoehorn, got back his soul
Family eternal, they won the hottest bowl
He's Al the Shoehorn, hot on the couch
Where he made the Devil grouch

I never seen an episode of “Married with Children” but I always thought that the episodes were more grounded in reality than this. Fun song and fun show!!

Funny indeed, and surprisingly enjoyable even having not watched the episode. I have watched very little of MwC, I never knew the show could get THAT weird.

For your bottom written area: This week was Agrimorfee not me...

Sorry 'bout the copy-haste bottom area mistake. As for MwC I'm pretty sure I've seen most of the episodes at some point, the early seasons really were grounded in reality, the latter ones not so much. Kinda like The Simpson their plots got weirder and weirder (in a good way). Also, guest stars tended to get whole episodes angled towards their stick - in "Damn Bundys" the Devil is played by Robert Englund, in a spin on his Freddy Krueger performance fame. I don't usually write parodies this specifik, but it was the idea that came and running with it quickly seemed to work out good enough.
