The Lyrics

More on lovable Barney Fife...
Barney is a officer
In awkward situations,
Although he's small, he still stands tall
Filled with determination

Barney's friends are young and old
Gosh, Thelma Lou is his girl
Andy and Opie are like kin
But with Otis he's not too thrilled

Barney’s afraid of lots of things
Carries only 1 bullet,
Always relying on Andy,
Has a gun, but rarely pulls it

Barney always in a mess
And yet the town still needs him.
Barney may seem like a fool,
But he’s brave when Andy leads him...

Baha! I'm too young to know much of Andy Griffith and this song got me googling :) Great parody!

I grew up on old Andy Griffith, and the show wouldn't be the same without Barney!
