The Lyrics

Another in my series of safety lessons
I screwed up
It's made me quite a clown
I have it rough
Since I visited "Zoo Town"
I ignored, baby
Sign said "Beware"
I didn't know a big lizard
Was sleeping in there

Oh, I thought I'd try reaching in
I didn't know that gator was so damn mean
It was the biggest that I'd seen
Oh, now where my arm had been

Pulled back a stump (Stump!)
Pulled back a stump
Got him fed, stump (Stump)
Got him fed, stump

Aaa-ohh, why me! Holy crap!
Why did I go in
They say it won't grow
It won't grow, except for some skin

No more reaching in for me
Just don't wave at me when I'm in a tree
On slot machines I am keen
I'm glad I wasn't there peein'

Pulled back a stump (Stump!)
Pulled back a stump
Got him fed, stump (Stump)
Got him fed, stump

Johnny, for years I wanted to write a parody of this called "Hump". I read that Roth had taken out a "debauchery" insurance policy with Lloyds of London, protecting him from paternity lawsuits.

Rick, I can imagine a hypothetical parody "Hump" going something like this...

I paid up
To Lloyds of London-town
I bought enough
To fend-off gold-diggin' clowns

Is that my---baby?
He's got my buns!

You've got to call-all-all-up my lawyer,
To get to my funds!

Oh can't you see me standing here
With groupies back behind the soda machine?

I ain't afraid of these teens,
'Cause Lloyds of London's my screen!

Might as well hump! (HUMP!)
Might as well hump!
Go ahead, hump! (HUMP!)'
Go ahead an' hump!

Looks like it will pass. Put it up there, Johnny. I somehow knew if I put that bug in your ear you'd come up with something.

'Tis done, Highlander. Watch for "Hump" at the next posting.

Well, this one made the cut, Rick - 5's. JD - Agree with Rick, I don't see any problem at all with posting that one. .

funny...loved the slot machine reference...5s

I suppose this one's 'armless... and, JD... if you're going for "Hump!", then what about:

I get up
Ever'thing get me down
Maybe I'm old
The oldest swinger in town
An' I don't care
About how you feel
Talk about my-y-y operation
An' the corns on my heel

You hear me complaining on and on about the youth of today
And if I got my way
They'd all be put away

'Cause I'm a grump (grump!)
'Cause I'm a grump
Yes I'm a grump (grump!)
Senile ol' grump

etc.. etc.. etc..

Philbo, I took my comment from here and spun it up into a parody for posting, so I recommend you follow suit with yours. ;-) P.S. Love the cockney!

OK, OK... if you insist, JD ;-)
