The Lyrics

this is one of the forms of dysfunction that resides near me

You've got the icicles hangin' down low
Now they've been hangin there for 3 years or so
Christmas ain't all year around
Does your laziness not know any bounds?
It's been buggin folks
Neighbors uptight
We're all sayin it don't look right
While you're sleepin in your bed
We'll be up there yankin down the lights instead

Take the Christmas lights down, bozo
December was so very long ago-go
Take the Christmas lights down, bozo
I'd like to be watchin' when you climb that high
Take the Christmas lights down, bozo
Cause on this street you are the biggest doh-doh
Take the Christmas lights down, bozo
Reindeer won't come tonight
I'd tired of your dumb lights!

You take the cake, you hillbilly flake
You know you're so much dumber when you're awake
Get a clue, it's four months away
Til the magic dawning of Christmas day
I know you're lazy, got no tools?
It's just my luck to live near toadstools
Come on redneck, get it right
You'd be kosher if you only take down those lights

(Repeat Chorus)


Come on redneck, get it right
We'll be lightless tomorrow night
It ain't cold yet, just climb up there
Neighbors say they're gonna pull out your hair


(Repeat Chorus)

I love redneck parody. You might be a redneck if you think fast food is slamming into a reindeer at 70 MPH in your pick up truck with the board bumper in the front and the easy rider rifle rack in the cab. Nice touch.

OK, so I'll have to be second ;-) And I do like the idea of a kosher redneck...

Heehee...5s, Royce!

I lived in Salt Lake City during the 2002 Winter Olympics, and for some reason, a TON of people thought that they should leave their Christmas lights up through the Olympics...which were in February. It drove me batty.

What's the big deal? People put up holiday lights for any special occasion. I do it for the Fourth and leave them up all summer. Why don't you take it up with Letitia Baldridge? By the way, I live in Southern California.

2Eagle: well let's see, why don't we gather up all the folks who leave lights up all the time, and send em all to your neighborhood? All of the enlightened people in one spot, that would work for me.

If my mother sees this, you're in big trouble, Royce. But, of course, Guy would know what a redneck is. If you think the Atlanta Braves were the Team of the 90s... if you think the last four words of the National Anthem are "Gentlemen, start your engines"... if your two best friends are Charlie and Jack, the Daniels brothers... if you think Bush actually won Florida... if you think Zell Miller is a Democrat... and if you walk yer dawg and you both use the tree on the corner... you might be a redneck.
