The Lyrics

The pimps they are a-changing and above all I blame MTV, once "pimp" was a purely negative word, then came "MTV Raps" and "Pimp my ride", that was the beginning of the end of how it used to be, from there on it just pimply swooshed down into crater faced everyday use, culminating with the Nike ad campaign "Pimp your shoes" that was run on every street corner, a past years track to Hell speed alert sign we have all travelled past since because it seems that anyone can pimp or get pimped now; dandruff shampoo plastic bottle makers are pimping their appearance, sports managers are using steroids to pimp their athletes, animated cartoons with highbrow ambitions have Homer pimps on television and political campaign makers are pimping every blemishing young celebrity they can to fuck their opponents. Heck, even this intro is me pimping the following parody song!
Pimp - It's a musing expression
Pimp - And a global obsession
Pimp - It's a slick trick discov'ry
That when pimped up will shit start recov'ry

Pimp - Up your life and get carried
Pimp - Redact what is horrid
Pimp - Up your borderline trash mon
Take a butt fugly CD and bash on

Pimp - Up the lines that you write
Pimp - All original shite
Pimp - Up and boost what is trite
When you think that a write is an awful bore, don't pout
Good's in the details, work it out

You can't pimp too flamboyant
You'll look like a circus clairvoyant
Pimp just enough and it's stellar
If you pimp right 'tis a U-boast propeller

Pimp - All the songs in your life
Pimp - Up the blanks for your wife
Pimp - All the skids on the whites
When you're up in her thong she's going to get alight
Don't linger i.e - pimp that rite

You want a stuck words remover?
A writer's Heimlich Maneuver?
Then pimp up the ones that are Gorgons!
'Cos pimped lines are tasty as bon-bons!

Pimp - Up the songs that dates back
Pimp - Up the punch that you pack
Pimp - Up Fab Four and Get Back
And then sleep on the thing 'fore you spring a last rewrite
No matter where your Yoko's at
© Peter Andersson. Footnote: Fans of the early John Lennon may never forgive me for the last line in this song, lest they understand that the real meaning is in the pronunciation. ;-)

Cogent commentary... I'm finding it hard to pimp-click your fives with all my hulkin' rings and 15-skin mink coat sleeves messin' with mah keyboard, bro...

This parody is Pimp!!! (Great social commentary to a great original song, I would love to hear this one recorded)

I can't quite get the last line pun. Great idea and execution here, Peter.

TJC: Thanks

Matthias: Google the phrase "pimp your stroller" för even worse examples of our social deevolution...

Red Ant: Fab Four, Get Back and Yoko (Ono, Lennon's wife, the one who was responsible for breaking them up) are all Beatles namedropping thingies, the last line sung becomes "no matter where your joke goes at". :-)

What I like about this song and many other of your songs is while it is funny it also has a lot of truth worth mentioning. I thought the rhyming was excellent. Great work!

[SOTM] My hood lingo isn't as great as it should be, but I'll give it a shot... I DKTOS, 'homie' but this 'be' a 'fly ass purrody', 'hustla', so 'Ima' give you three 5's, keep it up 'gangsta', and keep being a 'top billa steady makin' tha scrilla', 'dawg'. 'Peace out'.

SOTM...nice work on this one, K1...I've always loved the OS. Pimp is one of those words that has evolved to have several meanings...I think you hit them all in this one!

I really loved the original song, and enjoyed doing a parody of it at some point last year, one of those that right after I did it I just had to record it. Your rhyme choices were terrific, though some of it confused me, oh well, still fun though

Well done for covering that particular meaning of the word "pimp" ;-) Well, pimp my parody, man.. nice one, Peter

(SOTM) Great idea, Pete, and nicely executed - although now because of the overuse of the word 'pimp' it doesn't look like a real word when I read it (that happens to me a fair bit - it's irritating). Pimp my 5's!

I gotta admit I'm not cool enough to really get a whole lot of this but definitely a clever idea.

(SOTM) Very good idea, and well executed, as many have said.
