The Lyrics

Privet hedge, briars, and holly bushes oh my ! Had I had my way this week the following parody would have been applicable.The single parentheses are background vocals and double parentheses are Steven Tyler again.
There's somethin' wrong with our shrubs today
They sure look like a wreck
Shears cut them down to si-i-ize

We're seeing stalks growin' every way
and I said "what the heck"
and did I fertili-i-ize ?
No!

We're cuttin' on the hedge
Cuttin' on the hedge (oh!)
Cuttin' on the hedge (oh!)
Cuttin' on the hedge...

There's somethin' wrong with our yard today
The bush is gettin' thick
Climbin' towards the sky (why...)

I can tell y'all the hard work
And time's moving none to quick
And Mother Nature cannot be denied
No!

We're cuttin' on the hedge
(We can't help ourselves from prunin')
((sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies))

Trimmin' on the hedge
(Rap-id-ly approach-ing June...)
((sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies))

Cuttin' on the hedge
(We can't stop ourselves from prunin')
((sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies))

Trimmin' on the hedge
(sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies)

I'll tell you what I think about the sit-u-a-tion
Aggravation, Irritation
I'm gettin' a 'tude...
Yeah

If Mother Nature tells you that the rain is showin'
Even if it wasn't would they still be growin'
Back again?
I bet you would that hedge
Again, my lament, it's torment, what I get, once again...

( solo )

Yeah,
I'll tell you what I think about the sit-u-a-tion
'Nihilation, Radiation
I'm gettin a nuke...

Ohhh!

If deva-station kills you and the plants are glowin'
Even if it was would they still be growin'
Back again?
I'd like to kill that hedge
No friend, it's the end, for the hedge, oh but then

There's something right with our yard today
And everybody's seen our lawn
We ignore it though or stand and watch it grow
There'd be another springtime weekend gone:

We're cuttin' on the hedge
(We can't help ourselves from prunin')
((sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies))

Trimmin' on the hedge
(Rap-id-ly approach-ing June...)
((sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies))

Cuttin' on the hedge
(We can't stop ourselves from prunin')
((sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies))

Cuttin' on the hedge
(sweaty bodies, sweaty bodies)

Cuttin' on the hedge (oh!)
Cuttin' on the hedge (oh!)
Cuttin' on the hedge (oh!)
No, no, no, no, no, no, no...

*We take it to, take, take it to, take it to

Cuttin' on the hedge
(We just look foward to autumn)
Cuttin' on the hedge
(We now look foward to fall..)
Cuttin' on the hedge
(Hur-ry up seasons need changin')
Cuttin' on the hedge ( arghh..)

Trimmin' up the hedge
(You can't trim yourself)
(You can't trim yourself)
Cuttin' on the hedge
(I can't wait myself for fall)
((Tired body, tired body))
Choppin' up the hedge
(I can't help myself)
(I can't help myself)
Pullin' out the hedge
(For my mental health)
(And I've hurt myself)
Tearin' out the hedge
(I can't help myself from tearin'....)
Rippin' up the hedge...
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, you know I did that now

ohhh.........
* This line is practically undecypherable to me in the song. No hedges were harmed in the making of this parody.

Just the idea of Steve Tyler with a rake and some mulch cracks me up. 555

Good parody and I loved the bottom comment; "No hedges were harmed in the making of this parody." :-)

Thank you Peter.

Ant: A worthy compliment to Weird Al's "Livin' In the Fridge." Maybe you could have Judas Priest's Rob Halford "Mowin' the lawn! Mowin' the lawn!" Kristof: Then you might appreciate this one: http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/johnnycash7.shtml

Thank you Michael. I may do Mowin the Lawn if it has not already been done.

(SB) Gee, thanks for reminding me I need to trim the hedge today :-) If only Edward Scissorhands would show up... A most excellent suburban tale.

(Summertime) I thought it kind of weird to imagine shrubberyt surviving a nuclear holocaust. Pretty clever song, irregardless.
bobpiecheese - June 16, 2006 - Report this comment
(Summertime) Classic. I thought I wouldn't have to listen to the OS since I knew "Weird Al"'s version (Livin' In The Fridge), but, as always, his version was much shorter than the original. Oh, well.

Oh My God!!!! I love Aeroclip, I mean Aerosmith!!!!!!!!! This song sculpted my hedges!!!!!

(SB) You've got quite the green thumb for parody writing, Red Ant!

Between the OS, the fact that my wife might as well be singing this song, and an inside joke, I loved this one. Great job!
Stuart McArthur - June 21, 2006 - Report this comment
(SB) well, must say I aint never seen the use of the double parentheses before, Jack - points for that first alone - I dktos unfortunately, and the Weird Al parody of same, so I feel like I'm missing out, but going by the other comments, clearly you hit your target!
Red Ant - July 06, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks Rex, Agrimorfee, bobpiecheese, Matthias, Cat, Johnny D, Jeff and Stu.

Agrimorfee: Privot (sp?) hedge is more or less indestructable. Radiation might even make it more unmanageble.

Stu: Yeah, a you're missing out a bit. Mainly, you'd see what a biatch this was to pace and notate, and the rhyming oddities. I think I've had to use double parentheses in maybe 4 songs.
