The Lyrics

Sesame Street was already taken, so I picked another kid show that is the total opposite of "gangsta" -- Barney. Enjoy!
A, B, C, D, E, F, G is my most favorite phrase
I teach a bunch of kids numbers, letters, and basic shapes
Cause I've been teachin' and laughin' so long that
Even Mr. Rogers thought that my mind was gone

But I ain't never cursed a word, 'cause no one deserves it
Barney acting like a punk? You know that's unheard of
You better watch how you're talkin', and where you're walkin'
Because all my homies must be rated G

Got really purple skin, green spots on my back
And my friends have names like BJ and Baby Bop, fool
I'm the kinda G the little children wanna be like
ABCs day and night
Telling children not to fight

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a Barney Paradise
We don't fight, we all play nice
Living in a Barney Paradise
Eat no chocolate, we eat rice
Living in a Barney Paradise
We have not a single vice
Living in a Barney Paradise

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a Barney Paradise
Just for fun, we count by fives
Living in a Barney Paradise
All the "gangstas" think it bites
Living in a Barney Paradise
Educational advice
Living in a Barney Paradise

Believe in education, My best friend Jason
He can't eat nothing but rice, we were raised by the strict
So I gotta be down in the kids' dreams
I'm on television teaching kids to count by threes

I'm a educated fool that will not go away
Got two fingers in my hands and green spots on my tail
I'm the opposite of gangsta, an educator
And so rarely do I ever express my anger, fool

Death ain't nothin' that will happen to me
Even the Spice Girls said bye before I could say
In '93 I was huge, I can count to twenty-four
And other numbers that you don't know

A, B, C, and D -- E, F, and G
H, I, J, K, L -- M, N, O, P

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a Barney Paradise
We count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Living in a Barney Paradise
No kid's older than age five
Living in a Barney Paradise
We eat apples, corn, and rice
Living in a Barney Paradise

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a Barney Paradise
PBS shows us all night
Living in a Barney Paradise
Teach 'bout shapes and traffic lights
Living in a Barney Paradise
We sing songs that really bite
Living in a Barney Paradise

I love you, you love me
We're a happy family
That song's so annoying, but it's in every episode
It's going to drive the parents ex-trem-e-ly insane, fool

They say kids gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach 'em
And they get purple dinosaurs to teach ABC
We're residents -- on PBS
A, B, C, D E, F, G, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, P, fool

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a Barney Paradise
We don't fight, we all play nice
Living in a Barney Paradise
No kids beyond age five
Living in a Barney Paradise
We have not a single vice
Living in a Barney Paradise

We've been spending most our lives
Living in a Barney Paradise
We eat fruits instead of fries
Living in a Barney Paradise
We count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Living in a Barney Paradise
We count up to fifty-five
Living in a Barney Paradise

I love you -- You love me
We're a happy family
With a great big hug-- and a kiss from me to you
Won't you say -- you love me too

I love you -- You love me
We're a happy family
With a great big hug-- and a kiss from me to you
Won't you say -- you love me too

(Choral ending -- a capella)
I love you
You love me
We're a happy family

Totally nutzoid. Why do they eat rice so much? 555 anyway.

We eat rice so much because rice is healthy. It's good for you and healthier than hamburgers and candy -- Yech! I give this parody 5-5-5. It's stupendous and super-de-dooper!
