The Lyrics

Xanax - Prozac - Paxil - Zoloft

Give it to him, baby! Uh-uh, uh-uh!
Give it to him, baby! Uh-uh, uh-uh!
Give it to him, baby! Uh-uh, uh-uh!
And all the girlies say he's pretty shy (for a wise-guy)

Uno, dos, tres, counting helps to calm the shakes.

You know it's kind of hard
Just to off someone today
Our subject is afraid
But he does it anyway
He may not have the nerve
And he may not have a spine
But all the pills he takes
Well they make him feel jus' fine

So don't berate, the syndicate
You know he's really gonna get you anyway
He's gonna take a pill and try to chill
He'd rather play, He kills for pay
So if you're yell-ow, don't be a good-fell-ow
At least you'll know your knees won't turn into Jell-O
The Don needs underlings
So hey, hey! Kiss that pinky ring!

Give it to him baby! Uh uh, uh uh!
Give it to him baby! Uh uh, uh uh!
Give it to him baby! Uh uh, uh uh!
And all the girlies say he's pretty shy (for a wise-guy!)

He told his ol' goons
That he pulled the trigger twice
But he didn't have the guts
So he put the guy on ice
Now cruising in his limo, he sees rivals as he pass
And if he looks twice
They're gonna plug his coward ass

So don't berate, the syndicate
You know he's really gonna get you anyway
He's gonna take a pill and try to chill
He'd rather play, He kills for pay
So if you're yell-ow, don't be a good-fell-ow
At least you'll know your knees won't turn into Jell-O
The Don needs underlings
So hey, hey! Kiss that pinky ring!

Now he's makin' cement shoes, yeah
He's gettin' jobs done
Supposed to off 13, but he wounded 31
Don said he's workin' too hard
And he's over-stressed
He was outta his mind
He was, he was too distressed

Give it to him baby! Uh uh, uh uh!
Give it to him baby! Uh uh, uh uh!
Give it to him baby! Uh uh, uh uh!
uno, dos, tres, counting helps to calm the shakes.

So don't berate, the syndicate
You know he's really gonna get you anyway
He's gonna take a pill and try to chill
He'd rather play, He kills for pay
So if you're yell-ow, don't be a good-fell-ow
At least you'll know your knees won't turn into Jell-O
The Don needs underlings,
The Don loves underlings,
Let's train some more underlings
And hey, hey! Kiss that pinky ring!

Really good parody, man. This meets the original pacing of the song almost perfectly, if not...PERFECTLY! Keep up the parody making. And don't go killing anytime soon!

Thanks Bob! ...and don't worry, I couldn't kill a fly. ;)

great job, rhymes were great....i couldn't do as good as you did but honestly i think it isn't funny at all.....you have potential to make a funny one that could air on the radio i think....but this one just didn't have the comedy.....it sounds like i am insulting you but i am being honest.....if you just write something that is funny you can make it on the radio man

It doesn't sound like an insult, at all, Dave. It sounds like a fair and accurate assessment presented as constructive criticism, followed by a very flattering compliment. Thank you. :)

It's Tony Soprano in a few seasons. Love it. Hey! Hey! Kiss that pinky ring!

I dunno about the meter being perfect but it was alright. But i really did like 'Supposed to off 13, but he wounded 31'. Incidently, i had to dig the single out for this (Yes, OK, so i was a confused and ignorant teen at the time) and the CDDB came up calling 'All I Want' 'No Brakes' :/ Is that the third track on the yank version?

Thanks for the ratings and comments, Spaff and Hoeveel. Glad you liked it. Btw, I love the recordings you've shared with us so far, Spaff -- thanks! Hoeveel, on my copy of Americana, Pretty Fly is track 4 and No Brakes is track 10. Pippen, thanks for your comments and ratings, also -- sorry I missed thanking you, before... it's good to have you and Merry back. :)

This was really sweet, but needed a bit more variation in the choruses. I'm sure the only reason Melhi couldn't hurt a fly is they dodge bullets, it's really hard to put the cement shoes on and she cuts her fingers trying the piano wire! :) Keep up the good work!
Melhi - April 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Luke. I think the same thing about the choruses in the original... a fun song I enjoy listening to, but it is just a little repetitive, so I followed suit as a bit of a good-natured nudge at that. Did basically the same thing, for the same reason with my submission for tomorrow. Oh... and about the fly, you forgot to mention how their inability to scream takes all the fun out of it. ;) Thanks again!
