The Lyrics

I'm so happy 'cause I found my one bullet
in my pocket
In Mayberry, I try to uphold the law
Nipped in the bud
Otis Campbell sleeps in the jail on weekends
Locked myself in
the jail cell all because I lost the key!

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah-ah-ah, yeah-ah

Thelma Lou is my steady girl
Helen Crump is a killer shrew
Why does Goober even exist?
I'm going up to Mt.Pilot

I'm so teed off 'cause Andy won't modernize
Ernest T. Bass
Comes into town and throws rocks through the plate glass
And Gomer Pyle
is so naive, why did he join the Marines?
But I don't care
I like Aunt Bee, that's okay, her pies are good!

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah-ah-ah, yeah-ah

Thelma Lou is my steady girl
Helen Crump is a killer shrew
Why does Goober even exist?
I'm going up to Mt.Pilot

What makes this one funny is using the subject of Barney Fife in the context of a heavy grunge classic...kind of like making "Somewhere over the Rainbow" into a song about heroin addiction...hey that's an idea.

That, my friend, is juxtaposition at its finest
